Series 2 and 3 are listed among the "Supported devices," but when I select a file, I get an error that says, "This type of file is not supported, of the codec is not installed." Is there a codec I can download to fix this?

What's the file extension of the files you're trying to edit? Have you looked into which Codec the TIVO uses?

they're all ".tivo" files.
Like many companies, TiVo likes to keep things proprietary, so they're not specific about their codec (unless you're privy to some reading that I'm not.)
They're hardly an "unknown," however - and I can't be the first person who wants to trim up their 'XXX.tivo' files. ...Am I?
