I have my computer networked to my tivo and I want to convert its TiVo files to WMV for playing on my PC. I’ve tried several different methods but they don’t work. I have a season pass to all my favorite shows but can’t play then on my computer. Any tips on doing that? What’s the best way to convert TiVo to WMV on Windows PC. After reading several different post here I put together a working workflow.
