    i installed toast, i tried to open a .tivo file with toast motion pictures HD...then i discovered that i should be opening it with toast video player instead

    now it's stuck on opening the video with the wrong program. how can i switch it?

    select file
    apple + I
    open with: "program here"
    then hit the "change all" button

    thank you!

    i was looking under the file info, but i totally overlooked the "open with" area because it wasn't expanded
