Playitsam: Edit & Export TiVo TyStreams
Version 2.00, January 2003. (c) Warren Toomey, GPL license.
This program allows you to edit a recording made on a 2.5.x or 3.0
Standalone TiVo, and to export the edited stream as separate MPEG
audio and video files.
Caveats and Limitations
- You need a separate Linux/FreeBSD box with X11 installed to use Playitsam.
It does not currently run on Windoze.
- Playitsam version 2 is an editor only; it cannot play back TiVo streams
in any decent fashion. It will only export edited TiVo streams as
separate MPEG audio and video files.
- Version 2.00 is a proof of concept version. The user interface
is appalling, and there are sure to be bugs. This is not a production
version, and there is little chance it will ever become a production
