TiVo Desktop Plus

I'm hurting my Internet connection! 88|

Last night I decided to take the plunge and upgrade to TiVo Desktop Plus, to gain access to hopefully more TiVoCasts....

It didn't go well. After I got my license key, I tried to apply it to TiVo Desktop 2.5.1....it wouldn't take, said something about missing component. So, I downloaded 2.6....it required that I uninstall the old version first. XX(

Then, it kept saying the key was invalid. :##

I was looking around trying to figure out how to contact sales and get them to give me a working key...when I decided to poke around in registry. I found that it had decided that I my account (even though I'm Administrator of my own box) shouldn't have permission to HKLM/SOFTWARE/TiVo, granting myself permission to this branch....made it take the key and start working.... &#59;)

Now to see what additional stuff I can get....well, I was specifically looking for current GeekBrief.TV feed....instead of the delayed feed via TiVo. Didn't see how I would add feeds to it....seems it just makes additional ones available on my TiVo HD.

Searching around on Google, there was mention of RSS and TiVo Desktop Plus...but I didn't find any such option. Though another blog described adding using iTunes to subscribe to (video) podcasts, and adding the appropriate iTunes folder to TiVo Desktop Plus. I used this approach. I downloaded the most recent episode and it transferred it to my TiVo HD. I haven't watched yet (and not sure when I'll get to it tonight...or if it'll have to be later this week). But, it seemed satisfactory. :>>

So, I went to iTunes and clicked the "Get All" button...and now I'm hurting my broadband connection. :lalala:

Now I wonder if there's a way to tap other casts....like the DearCali one.... :?:

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
