Laptop instead of TV?

My TV isn't working.  Is there any way that I can use my laptop as if it were my tv attached to my TiVo?  I know I can access TV Anywhere but only streaming channels and not My Shows. Thanks for any help.

Re: Laptop instead of TV?

You cannot access recorded material on TV Anywhere because the content owners will currently not allow it. Likewise the TiVO HDMI output is protected by HDCP, to prevent anything that could possibly record content from decoding the pictures & sound. Unless it can confirm there is a TV at the other end you get nothing.

Thanks for the information. Worth a try. Hopefully I'll have a working TV soon
