You knew that once TiVo finally got around to rolling out TiVoToGo that the hacks would follow in about a millisecond. We're sure there are probably a bunch of other good ones out there, but if you're itching for a way to convert those copy-protected TiVoToGo .tivo files into unprotected (and easily shareable) MPEG-2 files, Evillabs.net has a little step-by-step that'll show you how to do it. Not for the faint of heart (if the instruction "5. Dig around for a MPEG 2 Demuxer" seems intimidating, you might want to skip this one), but it'll probably just be another few minutes before someone creates a one-click file converter that almost anyone can use.
