installed and working
I've downloaded and successfully installed Nero liquid TV/ TiVo PC. It's a 30 day free trial and it installed with few glitches. I had TiVo desktop installed and discovered the TiVo PC software conflicts when it tries to detect TV tuners, though. It hangs and hangs -- never crashes. You can reinstall TiVO desktop afterwards.
I like it; it saves media files as Mpg2 rather than TiVo files, like the DVR product, so it's easy to process and stream the files. Of course, it also records all the premium stuff that Shaw provides, unlike WMC. It integrates with my TiVo DVR too. It is more flexible than the DVR hardware that retails in Canada.
Moreover, I discovered it works with the USB UIRT. It doesn't "discover" the blaster as USB UIRT but when you start pushing buttons on the keyboard or remote, TiVo tests to figure out the signals and USB UIRT learns to change channels reliably. I bought the USB UIRT on line a while ago and never figured out what to do with it -- still don't. TiVo did it for me.
Yes, there is a subscription fee but you get one year with the download.
I can't say how it handles HD because I'm using the Motorola 700 from Shaw.
