I have a set of DVDs that are saved as VIDEO_TS folders on my Mac Mini.
I have a Humax 80 hours Series 2 Tivo. I have a cable modem attached to
the ethernet port on my mac mini.
I have Galleon 1.5 running on my mac (with Mac OS X 104.2).

I know that I need to buy either a router or ahub to connect my Tivo to
my cable modem and to my mac.

But, once I get the network up how do I transfer the playable DVDs from
my mac to the Tivo. I have a builtin dvd player on my mac and would
like to use it to plays my dvd movies. dvd movies show up on my mac as
a mounted device with the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders.

I know that the TiVo Desktop only allows me to xfer music and photos.

I don't think that Galleon 1.5 allows you to xfer these VIDEO_TS
folders and play them on myTivo.

thanks

You can't. Galleon which sits on top of TTG only allows you to move
back files that are in the TiVo proprietary encrypted format. Even hacked
TiVos can't do this (unless something new is available that I'm not aware
of).

The new TTG and TivoDesktop allows moving MPE2 content from your PC to
your Tivo. I don't know if Galleon supports that.

Yes it does - but that doesn't help with the VIDEO_TS/AUDIO_TS rips,
they're not in the correct format to transfer to a TiVo.

You can rip DVDs into a transferrable format, but that's not it.

You're right of course, I was more disputing RobR's comment that Tivo
could not transfer content *from* your PC. Just pointing out a new
feature! ;-).
