There is a new open-source program for TiVo owners that emulates a TiVo GoBack server called TiVo.Net (wiki available here). It can open many video formats, converts them on the fly and streams mpeg2 to your TiVo. It uses ffmpeg to convert the video so it should be able to stream pretty much any video that ffmpeg can open. It’s written in C# so it should be portable to Linux and Mac using mono.
I’m personally excited to use this in conjunction with Democracy Player to provide extra programming on my TiVo like the Make: podcast and also downloading stuff like James Burke’s Connections to watch them again from the comfort of my couch.
