So, I've been hoping for ages that someone would finally figure out how to decode (de-DRM-ify) .tivo files, and finally somebody did!

This is not some "OMG piracy!" thing. It's a "why the heck should one be freely able to both play and burn DVDs of shows downloaded from a TiVo under Windows, but not under other OSes" thing. This is great news. :)

I have not yet tried it, but I am so looking forward to being able to download do everything on the Mac or on a Linux box.

Yay! :)

I 'broke' the story last night in tivolovers and it has been spreading like wildfire all day. People have reported that it works great on MacOS, and it was create on Linux we know it runs fine there. (And a friend of mine is already using it with a Perl script to auto-archive on his server.)
