    Mplayer INSTALLING ????

    Does m player go on windows side or do you have to install it on the tivo. Also can cygwin compile the source code. I am a newbie at cygwin and really don't know the commands to compile it, but if someone can help, point me in the write direction. I can compile it, but when i run it it says can't find codecs in the usr/directory etc..Falling back etc...Can not connect to tivo by connection refused. I just want to stream from tivo to my pc(windows xp). I know i can't use windows xp enviroment that why i downloaded cygwin. I would really like to get this to work...Any help or comments are appreciated.....

    Talking mplayer

    darrin75,

    I can tell you that mplayer goes on the Windows side and vserver goes on the tivo side. Sorry I can't help you with anything else. I still have alot to learn and don't want to mess anyone up.

    soapydonutz is right. vserver is for the TiVo, and Mplayer is for the desktop computer.

    You don't need to build anything, the Windows installer for tivo-mplayer works fine: http://tivo-mplayer.sourceforge.net/, or you can take your chances with a newer version from http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/des...s.html#windows or http://ftp3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/win32-beta/

    However, have you considered just using the vserver / TyShow combination? It seems like that would be easier for streaming since it allows you to use a player you already have (WMP) instead of requiring a whole new one.
