I am having problems playing video on my PC that I have downloaded from my Tivo.

I've had TivoToGo since a few weeks after it launched and this problem has palagued me since then. I can download video just fine. I can play the video. But I cannot hear the audio that is attached to the video.
You'll say, "bDiddy, you obviously do not have the right Codec installed." But, I don't know how to know what is the right one. Tivo's site is rather vague. They say that if you have a DVD playing software installed, you have the proper codecs. Well, I do have a DVD playing software installed and it still doesn't work. I've tried a few different ones and still, no audio. I finally found a method posted somewhere about how I can strip the mpeg out of the .tivo file and this worked. However, it only worked until the demo ran out on the software the instructions had me install for the codecs.
So, I think I can buy the DVD burning software from Sonic and this should work, but I don't know if it will. I don't want to buy it without testing it and I already used up the trial for that before I bought a DVD burner. (Stupid bDiddy!) So now what? Anyone beat this problem and want to offer me some advice?
