All I know is, every time I clicked a response, I was thinking,

"I WANT IT!"
"I WANT IT!"
"I WANT IT!"
"I WANT IT!"
"I WANT IT!"

Can anyone confirm/deny that if you burn to DVD, you can watch it in a standalone DVD player? Based on what I read, you might be able to burn it to DVD, but only play it on a computer with the Tivo dongle. This would be a make-or-break for me. If I can't burn as a "regular" DVD, I'd never buy it. If I can, I would.

It is my understanding from previous posts, that you can burn them and watch them on a standalone player.

From transcript of confrence call:

quote:
Question: (Can't understand it all, but is asking if after using the security key to get video onto the pc and burn it to DVD, can it then be played on any device without needing key?)

Answer: Yes you can, the same as with the Pioneer.

Current thinking is burning a DVD would likely require the dongle. Playing back the DVD would not, nor would it be limited to the PC it was burned on (you could play it in the car, on the plane, in the office, on a train, on a box, with a fox...).

Sorry if the survey was confusing on this point.

The TiVo press release specifically said that the DVDs it created would be playable in normal standalone players. Although TiVo recordings are NOT DVD compliant, so be prepared for there to be a long transcoding time associated with the Save To DVD process.

Did anyone else think the survey was longer than usual?

Not that I'm complaining, but it was something I noticed while taking it.

Yeah, I also did the "man, I hope I get to bea beta tester..."

If and when this feature is implemented, it will give the SA Tivo a distinct advantage over the DirecTivo IMO and maybe push some more lemmings off the cliff into getting a Tivo.

At CES this year, there were a number of iPod like devices for video.
That would be the ultimate TiVo to Go product for me.

Just plug in one of these hard drive based "mini TiVos" into the USB port, and select which programs I want to dump onto it. I can then hop on a plane with my very own enternainment system (and a bag of batteries).

The only problem with that setup is that most of those portable video players are designed to play back MPEG4 files with MP3 audio. TiVo records in MPEG2 format with MP2 audio.

On question 21. "If you wanted to burn DVDs of programs, what would you prefer?"
I answered "Use TiVoToGo and transfer programs to my computer, which can burn DVDs" on the assumption that I would have access to better editing facilities on my computer than on a TiVo DVR with built-in DVD burner.

On question 24. Is the selected computer [if you were to use TiVoToGo] a laptop computer or a desktop computer?
I answered Laptop, on the assumption that I would spend most of my time using TiVoToGo viewing programs on the road, but the time spent using TiVoToGo to edit programs, I would use a desktop.

Sounds like the Hello Kitty USB Hub. [Click for details.]

Replace Hello Kitty with TiVo Guy and make the figure animate for network instead of keyboard activity, and you've got a new geek item for the TiVo Store. If the TiVo Guy could vocally report to you on what your TiVo is doing, that would be extra cool.

Of course I took part in it. My dream is a nice media server that I can hook up my current Series2 40, and would purchase a second Series2 40 for my bedroom if I can stream my video archives at will.

I would like to connect the the USB port on a TiVo to a USB Hub and have one connected to the 10/100 network and the other connected directly to a PC.


I would like to transfer to/from a PC in twice the real time.

I would love to build a massive storage PC with a simple CPU. I would love to "push/send" data from TiVo to the PC so, I can leave the PC running in the garage/basement.

1) there are 2 (TWO) USB ports on the back of the Tivo.

2) Using a Hub like that doesn't give you more bandwidth on the USB Bus. So the 2 devices would end up having to compete for the available bandwidth.

3) at about 12 Megabit you will get faster than Best Quality Realtime.. but not by much. With a USB 2.0 Interface (if they turn it on for units that can indeed support it) it would be much faster for file transfers.

and.. umm..... errr..... yeah who doesn't want a huge horkin Data Store for their household data? :-)

Said by TiVo survey:

"Have you ever actually taken video content from your TiVo DVR and put it on your computer? **"

I didn't see that question as a big deal. It's ok to use analog out on the TiVo to put video content on your PC.

I think they just wanted to know how many people are already going through the trouble of doing it now. The disclaimer is there to put some people's minds at ease so they don't think it's a 'witch hunt'

BTW, are you the same JoshNJ from the Broadband Reports forums? I'm guessing yes since your avatar there is the TiVo guy
