Ok

Ive got a standard Thomson TIVO but what should I do?

I would like a TIVONET card and tivoweb so I can download movies for archiving to xvid!

However what software do i need, what are the extreme packs available? and do i need special codecs?

thanks

Simon

Get a cachecard rather than a turbonet, without RAM it will give faster transfers and with RAM it will speed up the menus etc. as well.

Meanwhile, read the TYTOOL and other threads in the extraction support forum on these boards for more information.

I don't know what the extreme packs are, I think they may be specific to US DTiVos or version 2 models.

edit: TiVoWeb on its own will not extract - again, read the stuff about extraction etc.
