TiVo is a great invention, that lets you record TV shows for later viewing. TiVo Desktop is a piece of software that lets you transfer shows to your PC for watching and storage, but if you have Windows Vista, you might be plumb out of luck there.

if you have Windows Vista and can't run the application. Check out Lisa's excellent suggestions at Download Squad.
