Sorry it has taken me so long to report on this however, I’ve been busy as of late playing around with my new MacBook. Anyways, TiVo has released a preview release of TiVo Desktop version 2.4. This release includes a number of new features including the ability to view your photos in high definition on a Series 3 TiVo. Version 2.4 also includes the ability to transcode other video formats into MPEG2 so that they can be viewed on your TiVo.
Transfer videos downloaded from the web to a TiVo® box and watch them on your TV. Popular video formats are automatically converted to TiVo video format during transfer.Note: Requires a TiVo Desktop Plus upgrade key. Supported video formats include .WMV (Windows Media), .MP4 and .M4V (MPEG-4, H.264). Videos that are protected with DRM are not supported. View photos and slideshows with enhanced clarity in HD quality on your Series3™ TiVo® box. The new photo feature automatically scales your jpeg formatted photos to 1280 x 720 resolution.Note: Does not require a TiVo Desktop Plus key.
2.4 is a preview release so you should install it with caution. Of course, you can always uninstall it if you have any problems with it.
