-- Bac news about AAC support (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=138404)

IloveMP3 doesn't convert AAC to MP3 "on the fly," it reencodes the file and makes a duplicate. As kupe mentioned, you'd now have 2 copies of every song on your hard drive (not to mention all the conversion time (and LAME is SLOW!!!) just so you could play them over TiVo. That's no good. That's not how the so-called "digital hub" is supposed to work. Also there has to be some loss of quality going from one encoding scheme to another. We need native AAC playback on TiVo. They said they were working on it. So it's not a matter of why or how, but when????
