Yes, the TiVo HD is in the same boat as the Series3. It's coming in November:
Assuming the Series3 and TivoHD work like the older Series2 Tivos, you'll only need the Plus version if you want to transfer non MPEG-2 files to the Tivo, such as DIVX, AVI, etc.moxie1617 said:You'll also have to upgrade to Tivo Desktop Plus to transfer movies to your Tivo.
Would the mpeg2 files be the movies and programs I record to DVD or are they just files that carry the mpg/mpeg extension? My DVD's have multiple .vob files in a video_ts folder. Since life is never easy I guess I would have to convert them to mpg.bkdtv said:Assuming the Series3 and TivoHD work like the older Series2 Tivos, you'll only need the Plus version if you want to transfer non MPEG-2 files to the Tivo, such as DIVX, AVI, etc.
One could almost mistake that for a celebration of the eventtangozebra said:I have about 100 home movies that I want to copy onto my S3 once this is enabled.
Did you try increasing the bitrate, or a better MPEG encoder (preferrably a two-pass one)? Either of those will increase the quality of the end result. Incidentally, VCDs use MPEG, but with a lower resolution than the Tivo would expect, so a low bitrate that would look like absolute crud at full TV resolution would look decent there... as long as you didn't blow up the image too much when playing it.t-shady said:I was using Videora to convert avi's to mpg's for my previous Tivo. It works great, but the resolution isn't that great. The video quality is poor and you lose any HD.
