    Re: battery life, I just charged my treo to full battery, and then watched a 1 hour tv show (with earbuds, not the speakerphone) using tcpmp and then 15 minutes of music through ptunes, and my treo says that the battery level is at 89%. Also, my phone/wireless was on the whole time with perfect reception. So, it looks like a one hour show drains only 10% of the battery. Can other people with 650s confirm this? If it's not just a glitch, that's pretty cool, and it kicks the video ipod's a**. Also, I've noticed that my battery level barely decreases when I listen to music. It drains much faster when on a phone call.

    i haven't tried quicktime to export the new tv shows, but i use quicktime to convert movies for the treo.

    Get evtEdit at http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post5945417

    I find it will sometimes mistakenly select parts of the show as a commercial, but you can manually check each segment for inclusion.

    rtvConvert will 'fix' the file for burning onto DVD, if that's of interest to you.

    I was using 216 kbps originally, but it was a bit too blocky, so I went to 384kbps, with 48kbps mono audio.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am looking for a source of TV shows/music videos etc that I can run on the TCPMP or Kinoma Player. I don't mind a pay for download service but I understand that I can't easily[U] get these from Itunes and Yahoo music does not allow music video downloads.
    Thanks

    so if i buy this one I will be able to make it networkable to my mac and move tv shows from the replaytv unit to the mac?

    You could, but that one is a 5500 unit. You should really buy a 5000 unit (probably only available on eBay) because that is the model that has automatic commercial skipping ("Commercial Advance"). It was removed after the 5000 units due to pressure from the TV networks. So 5500 bad, 5000 good.

    It is amazing and it does work with Macs as well!

    Agreed. I have a 5040 w/ Commercial Advance and it rocks. Usually several on eBay w/lifetime registration.

    Then sign up at poopli.com and you can request shows you missed be sent to your networked ReplayTV over the internet. (Took about 2 1/2 days to get a 2 hour show, but it works).

    Does anyone here have an HP multimedia desktop PC?

    We have one that hooks up directly to the cable TV cable, with it's own schedule program updated from our internet connection, that acts like a Tivo. I am not sure what format (may be propietary?) it saves the program in. I'd love to be able to convert the file for use on my treo 650, but haven't figgured out how yet. I have TCPMP and just got Lathe (also have that Divix program whose name escapes me).

    I also haven't been able to convert DVD's yet, or get VHS into the Multimedia PC for conversion or use either. I'm beginning to wonder if this so-called Multi-media PC is just a PC with the ability to watch and record TV off the cable, tivo-like.

    I have also purchased some LOST episodes through iTunes and couldn't play them with TCPMP. They are protected (read - encrypted). I download LOST episodes through BitTorrent. They are high-def and widescreen but they play perfectly on my zire72 with TCPMP installed (no video resize needed). Look for the ones with LOL in the filename. I'd say rather than bash your head on concrete trying to find a way to play your purchased video, just change your source for videos. If Apple wanted us playing our purchased video on palm they would create a palm app which did that. Until then, their loss.
