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.
