Does not yet support Divx/Xvid (AVI) format, only the following formats:

Windows Media Video (.wmv)
QuickTime Movie (.mov)
MPEG-4/H.264 (.mp4,.m4v,.mp4v)
MPEG-2 (.mpg,.mpeg,.mpe,.mp2,.mp2v,.mpv2)

Also, does not install onto Vista, if you are looking to run TiVo Desktop on Vista, check out the earlier version, 2.3a.

When running, a notification Icon is always displayed in the Notification area - in windows, you may set this icon to "always hide", but when you reboot windows, that setting will be lost and it will re-appear again (TiVo desktop bug.)

File transfers from TiVo S2 to PC's 80211.g are 2Mb/s (to TiVo) and 4Mb/s (from TiVo) at +80% wireless connection status, while downloads from my internet provider (TimeWarner) are usually 8Mb/s & 12Mb/s. Which means that TiVo to PC takes about 45min for 1hr program - and PC to TiVo takes about 1.5hr for 1hr program... on 802.11g using TiVo Wireless G USB Network Adapter to Linksys Wireless G WRT54G v3.2 w/Tomato 1.04 firmware and Intel Gigabit 10/100 PCI card on fresh install of WinXP. Fastest transfer times obtained when TiVo S2 is paused in a pre-recorded program.

Allows you to wirelessly stream music from your networked computer. Somewhat of a resource hog, so I don't have the program starting on reboot. Otherwise, works very well and is very useful for sending music (and photos) to my entertainment system.
