    I do most of the support at Issues · dscottbuch/cTiVo · GitHub, but I can certainly answer this one here. You should try the Decrypt MP4 format (you'll need to enable in UI at Edit>edit formats.). From the wiki:

    • Decrypt MP4: This is a Format for experts. It's very fast, and will copy the video and audio through without re-encoding, so (especially if interlaced) it may be incompatible with iTunes and other systems. Unlike Decrypted TiVo Show below, it converts the file format to MP4, so you can add subtitles, commercial skipping information, and other metadata inside the file.

    Thanks for the reply. I used Decrypt MP4 as you suggested. The .mp4 format was not recognized by my Macbook. I tried changing the extension in the name to .mov, a change which works with Decrypted Tivo SHow but, alas, did not work here. Any other suggestions? Thanks again.

    I haven't used cTiVo in a while, so I just installed the 2.5.1 version. I'm able to connect to both TiVos in the house, and the program supplied me with a list of episodes. However, the list isn't complete. In particular, I don't see Rick and Morty in the list of recordings, even via a search. Have they blocked/hidden it somehow, beyond preventing it from being downloaded?

    Actually, I realized that all the Adult Swim programs are missing from the Now Playing list.

    It's possible they are marked "Copy 0". Go into Preferences and check "Show Protected Shows" to show the episodes CTiVo isn't showing.

    That was it, thanks. I missed that option when scanning the preferences.

    Doesn't really help other than understanding why they can't be recorded. Cartoon Network isn't normally a premium channel so I'm surprised the shows are protected. Who is your cable provider?

    I used the wrong terminology. "Copy Once" are programs that can't be copied off the TiVo (the first copy is the one on the TiVo).

    Some cable systems (Time Warner is notorious) apply that flag on channels where it's not required (normally it's only on channels like HBO) but people have reported little success in getting it changed over the years.
