Tried VLC and Compressor mpeg-2 files in the TIVO recordings folder. The Mac shows up, but not the video files. Any ideas?

If only I didn't have to use the TiVo and could use AppleTV for CATV access of HD content... SJ, are you listening??

Is the only way to get videos from the Tivo if I have Toast? I'm really wanting that feature. Why does the PC version get that feature for free?

Yes - you can download TiVo Decode Manager which works on Series2 and
Series3 units. This will allow legal extraction (provided you have a
valid service subscription and Media Access Code from TiVo) of MPEG-2
files including digital audio formats which can then be viewed or
converted in with no loss of quality from the original TiVo recordings.Plenty of interesting links on their sourceforge page.http://tdm.sourceforge.net

The files you pull off of the Tivo, are there format or quality limits? Is there any encryption/restriction?

I stopped using a Tivo because of the restrictions on Series3 units, where files you pull off are either in uncompressed format secured by DRM, or have quality limits when you export them. If this is no longer true, it is a very big deal for me!

There are still quality limits on the videos you pull from your TiVo.
