Have you tried removing the patch to see? but yes that's correct.Is the above correct for a non patched tivoapp? Mine is patched so I don't know.
I can't say definitively, but if you use the same version of TiVoDesktop as US folks, then I would wager it would be the same. Additionally, I would think that irrespective of the stream content, the encryption might remain the same. Try it and report back your results.Also does anyone know if tivodecode works with Australian .tivo files? I know the author of s3tots had to modify his code slightly as our recordings contained extra streams.
There is discussion on this very topic in this thread: linkThe primary reason I ask these questions is that I have 3 TivoHD's in my house. 2 not chipped and 1 chipped. I would like to be able to transfer shows bettween these tivos but I am aware that this is not possible if a tivo has NoCSO patch applied. I would still like to be able to archive shows though from the chipped tivo so don't want to interfere with that.
So the question is in my situation.... is the NoCSO patch important or really just there for convenience?
I believe that the consensus was that for those running a mixture of hacked and unhacked units, many of them do not apply the NoCSO patch so that MRV works, and they then tackle extraction (which is only possible with mfs_ftp if NoCSO is applied) using TTG/tivodecode (I'm not sure if tivodecode will work with the raw TS streams obtained from mfs_ftp, as you seemed to suggest).
