I have tivoserver and love what it can do. But is there other way to put my videos form my PC to my Tivo ?

The last few weeks tivoserver keeps craching on me and i don't know why. I got like 10 Disney.Channel.Original movies that i got form DVD and want to put them on the kids tivo.

Is there a better way to do this ?

I am useing win xp as my OS

MFS_FTP is another way, but you have to make sure the videos are in proper TY format first.

I've found that while tivoserver is really good, it sometimes crashes and quits for no apparent reason. Often a file which crashes tivoserver will then work once tivoserver is re-started.

I've got mine set up under WinXP/Cygwin with a cron script which checks every minute if tivoserver is running, and re-starts it when it dies.

How long does it take to convert a 700mb avi to TY format and then ftp it over ?
