    AFAIK, the "TMF" format is just a big tar file with all the original recording 'chunks' inside, directly pulled off the Tivo's hard drive. You should be able to use 7-zip or other untar utilities to...

    Have you tried a modem dial-out, yet? If it updates over modem, you know you've got some sort of networking problem.

    If modem doesn't work, it may be the hard drive.

    Some of those guys are claiming some pretty crazy numbers, one fella is saying around 20Mbps or so.
