what? where is mkv? its a better file format than mp4 and the mkv files are 1080p and have a smaller file size. so i have to use Vuze to Transfer the mkv files. plus when you Transfer the file name might be like “big buses from around the world” its a youtube video but when you Transfer the file over to the tivo it changes the name to example  “www.ere.com/big buses from around the world” please i would like it to not change the name of the file when its on the tivo it would good to have a setting to turn it off to leave the file name alone the same as if it was on the pc or mac. Vuze does not change the file name on the file that is why i love Vuze better for transcoding but Vuze does not handle mp4 files that well. it makes the video break up during the conversion process of a mp4 file. plus i have not tried out any other formats.

what you see here in the first photo is the now playing list of the stuff on your mac or pc that you Transferred from your tivo . for a example like my wrestling it will take 30 to 45 minutes on lan to Transfer from the tivo to the pc shown in the next photo

what you see here in the second photo is showing  you what you have recorded or recording on your tivo for me i love to Transfer video game videos and they are sometime 28 hours or more but it will take sometimes for the video will take 15 minutes to 8 hours to Transfer over mattering on how much time is on the video

what you see here in the third photo is where this shows you what you have sharing to your tivo this is where you choose from the video,audio,and photo to set folders to share but it will not use protected files

to sum it up i wish it had more Supported file formats. dont mess with the file names

i give it a 7 out of 10 rootbeers
