I recently got one of the first-generation, 30 GB brown Zunes for $99, which was a great value. I immediately upgraded it to the second-generation firmware and filled it with music. I left a little space on the device for Tivo recordings. Here's how you can transfer your Tivo recordings to your Zune:
It's unfortunate that step 3 is necessary. The Zune software should automatically convert .mpg files to whatever format the Zune device prefers. I don't know why the software balks at .mpg files and forces the user to convert them to .wmv format.
This is a time-consuming process. For a one-hour program, step 1 takes about an hour, step 2 takes a minute or so, step 3 takes about two hours, and step 4 takes a few minutes (for some reason it has to re-encode the file before transferring it to the Zune).
On another subject, I was a little disappointed to find that my Zune could not do wireless synching on my LAN because it doesn't support WPA2.
