Can you run (in Terminal.app) Code: grep -C 10 "Complete=" /tmp/iTiVo-*/iTiVo.log I'm trying to figure out why it thinks the download was a failure and retries. One possibility: does the Elgato encoder delete the original file when it's done converting? *OR* is the 480i video you are testing with a 'partial' recording? Partial recordings always cause 'retries' because the tivo doesn't send the whole file and iTiVo thinks there was an error. You can control the number of retries in the advanced settings. (if it was, can you try with a full recording of something.... leave it overnight or something).
