I've run both of them. The 32bit version seems to be more friendly to 3rd party codecs/drivers/software. 32 bit seems to use less memory also. Unless you have 4GB+ of memory I'd stick with the 32 bit.

Just add it to the library in WMC. You will need to label it "recorded TV"

Tivo can't read the WTV files, and WMC will only recognize WTV files as recorded TV shows.
