Re: How can I use my TiVo box with my PC?

TV anywhere on the PC allows you to watch certain live channels, you cannot watch recorded programs from your Tivo on any device

 

This is because

 

1: The broadcasters do not want this

 

2: The Tivo has a 1 meg upload limit and that's not enough from streaming

 

the 2nd problem can be overcome the 1st problem not so much

Re: How can I use my TiVo box with my PC?

If you have an HDMI input on your PC you could try it, but this method of connection is unlikely to be HDCP compliant. In other words, the TiVO handshakes with what you are connecting to make sure it is not a recording capable device. If it cannot see a TV at the other end it blocks transmission of the picture.

 

You can use TV Anywhere for live streaming only, of the channels that allow it.
