Can I add a Tivo codec to Premiere Elements?

When importing a TiVo file, Adobe Premiere Elements would return the error "File Format not Supported" or other error message.

“Is anyone here using Premiere Elements to edit TiVo files? If so, how are you doing it? I’d like to be able to import several TiVo files into Premiere and edit it. Anyone doing such a thing? What’s your workflow? Thanks for any replies.”

The reason the file is not supported is because only a handful of programs currently support .tivo files in their native format, which is MPEG-2 based, but in what someone described as being in a ".tivo wrapper." You will need a program that will work with it in that form, or else removes it so that it will be recognizable by other video software.
