Since the Tivo is at the center of our entertainent system these days. Wouldn't it be trick to have it play mpeg video streams aquired from other sources. Say home movies created from the dv camera or what not. There is a nice mpeg decoder inside of the tivo so does any one have any thoughts on the mater? I've seen that there was some progress with playing mp3 on the tivo why not mpeg video as well.

Or buy an Xbox and hack that to be the media server. I know it can handle TiVo files.
