Play AAC music on your TiVo

Mac Geekery – Play AAC music on your TiVo Hot damn! It worked!

I downloaded a lame pkg and installed it and it did not work. TiVo saw the music but didn’t play AAC files, just MP3. But it at least saw them. So, I checked and, sure enough, I had a newer version in /sw/bin/ courtesty of fink. So, I symlinked /usr/bin/lame to that one and then it worked just fine.

It won’t play anything purchased at the iTunes Music Store thanks to the DRM. Not sure how much I want to worry about that right now. At the very least, we can finally finish ripping all of the CDs in AAC and put them away in the garage in boxes and get back that wall where they are now.
