Actually Mplayer can play them now (and can for some time).  Someone
ported the code a while back.

Well, I've hacked the DirectTiVo already.  I can move the files off the
TiVo and onto a myth box without much problem.

Ahhh, that is the crux of the problem I guess.  I was hoping to here I
could use mplayer :)

I have not found much info on the myth internal player.  Is there
anything, or just source/devlist?

Also it is also possible to convert the ty streams to mpeg (they are
mpegs with extra headers).  Is there a prefered format for the internal
player?  I would prefer to just move the ty stream obviously.
