then you can now upload your video into your TiVo.
Setting up your PC
Download and install tyShow for windows: TyShow-BETA-0.14.exe.
This will enable you to play video files in tivo format (.ty)

First download mfs_ftp which does all the actual work on the tivo machine.
Put it in /var/hack, extract it and start it:
% cpio -H tar -i < mfs_ftp.tar

e.g. in internet explorer: ftp://192.168.1.200:3105
