Ok... here's the situation. My parents will be moving to China at the end of the year. My father is looking for ways to allow my mother to watch US content while in China. They will be keeping their place here in the US and it will have cable. One option I thought of was to have them get a tivo and use kmttg to automatically download shows and convert them into a small file, place the encoded file on dropbox. Then dropbox will sync with the computer in China and my mother will be able to see some of the shows that she likes. This will work for items that are on a season pass but won't work for special shows here and there. They will be able to get to tivo.com so they can schedule recording and season passes from there. Is there any way to download every recording to a local PC? or are there other options we should look at? slingbox is not reliable from china due to bandwidth issues. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
