Yea, LAME is *really* slow. I downloaded iLoveMP3 to go ahead and convert my AAC files to MP3, and it looks like LAME encodes MP3 in realtime (meaning a 5 minute song takes 5 minutes to encode).

As for why TiVo doesn't "do" AAC, there are two things. First, there's the basic AAC support itself. And if you want to play protected AAC files from the iTunes Music Store, then TiVo also has to understand FairPlay (Apple's DRM). Currently Apple hasn't licensed FairPlay to anyone, so the only things you cal use to play AAC files (without converting them) from the iTunes Music Store is iTunes (for Mac or Windows) or the iPod.
