Tivo Software breaks Tivo2dvd - workaround

The Tivo software, as of version 9.1-01-2-140, pushed in October 2007, has
changed the reported MIME type of available Tivo2go shows. This causes the
Net::TiVo library to not see them, making it impossible to find a show
match.

A workaround is as follows:

In the file Folder.pm (located at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/Net/TiVo/Folder.pm on my computer)

Modify line 68 from
if ($show->{Links}->{Content}->{ContentType} eq
'video/x-tivo-mpeg') {... read more

Problem with "makemenu"

With recent software installs, tivo2dvd can fail in the "makemenu" step. It is caused by a compatibility problem between the tovid and ffmpeg packages. There is a fix in to tovid, but it is not in the most recent release (0.30). The problem, and a work around, is described at http://tovid.wikia.com/wiki/Known_bugs#makemenu_fails
