This software converts a .TiVo file (produced by the TiVoToGo functionality on recent TiVo software releases) to a normal MPEG file. This has the same functionality as using TiVo's supplied DirectShow DLL on Windows with a tool such as DirectShowDump, but is portable to different architectures and operating systems, and runs on the command line using files or pipes. The conversion still requires the valid MAK of the TiVo which recorded the file, so it cannot be used to circumvent their protection, simply to provide the same level of access as is already available on Windows. This version includes the MPEG2 Transport Stream supported patch from the kmttg project (see http://code.google.com/p/kmttg), and so is equivalent to the unofficial "0.3pre6" version supplied by that project.
