I really love Galleon's features compared to everything else out there, but there's a serious issue with the Go Back routine. HD programs which get sent back to the S3 TiVo have corrupted video and audio. Every so often the audio will skip usually accompanied by artifacts in the video. It's much worse on some sources than others. I've seen some reports of the same issue running TiVo Desktop, but have not confirmed it myself. Some shows are bad enough to be essentially unwatchable, and it's aggravating even on the programs with the fewest / mildest issues. Here's the thing, however: the very same programs show no artifacts at all when transferred using pyTiVo. Now pyTiVo doesn't handle naming as elegantly as Galleon, but given a choice between a slightly ugly and slightly deficient NPL and corrupted video, I have to go with the clean video and ugly menus, but all in all I'd rather just have Galleon working 100%.
