This is how I am listening to my iTunes Music Store files on my TiVo:
(You will need a program called Hymn, Your iPod, and iTunes 4.5)
1. Buy songs from iTunes Music Store
2. Quit iTunes (iTunes cannot be open when you plug in the iPod)
3. Plug the iPod directly into the FireWire port on your computer (no other FireWire devices attached)
4. Open Hymn
5. Drag the iTMS files into the Hymn window
6. Click convert.
7. Now you have non-DRM'd AAC files
8. Open iTunes, pull in the non-DRM'd AAC files.
9. Highlight the files in iTunes, and in the Advanced Menu, click Convert to Mp3...
10. The files will convert to Mp3. Delete the AAC files in your iTunes and keep the Mp3's.
You can keep the original AACs if you want. I didn't do any sort of scientific comparison but I can't really tell the difference between an AAC file and an iTunes converted AAC to Mp3 (192 Kbps) file. I know a lot of people feel you shouldn't have to "convert" or "compress" a file you buy to use it the way you want, but that's the reality and that's how to do it.
