tivo dump

Well, it doesn’t actually make a lot of sense to figure out the encryption used by the TiVoToGo DLL, since TiVo could at any moment change it, the TiVo box’s routines, etc, and force all of us to upgrade. This ends up turning into an arms race, like iTMS. So, a better approach is to just use the DLL itself. Wine and Mplayer both have perfectly well written DLL loaders. All that has to be done is write a DirectShow Pull Pin implementation, following all the public published specs.
