TiVo Desktop 2.4 for Windows Preview Release

A preview release of the coming TiVo Desktop 2.4 for Windows is now available for download. If you have a Series3, this includes the promised HD Photo viewer. Photos are now converted to 1280×720 for the S3, instead of being converted to SD resolution (I think the old photo app was 640×480).

2.4 also includes auto-transcode for other video formats into MPEG-2 for the TiVo. The details state that Windows Media (.wmv), QuickTime (.mov), MPEG-4/H.264, and MPEG-2 videos are supported. This feature does require a TiVo Desktop Plus key.

This is a preview release, which puts it somewhere between ‘beta’ and ‘final release’. You can always remove it and reinstall 2.3a if you have problems.

    Macs can run an open source program called Tivo.Net within mono and get the same transcoding functionality in addition to having things sorted into folders (which 2.4 does not do to my knowledge). Check the thread at tivocommunity… there are some custom mac binaries around page 33 or 34.
