I just tried opening a .tivo file that I downloaded and VRD says I need to use Tivo Desktop. Why is pyTivo not working with VRD to open .tivo files? The screen capture shows that I have pyTivo running and it is connected to my Tivo and displaying recorded media validating that my MAK is correct. I verified that running Tivo Desktop DOES allow VRD to successfully open .tivo files. I know that pyTivo is your software so why doesn't it play nice with VRD?
