    Hi,
    is it possible to set download path from a different location/source/directory other than Tivo itself? I've downloaded some of my original .tivo files previously to my external usb hdd and would like to use itivo for processing them

    Thanks

    I have a Turbo.264 HD. Can you make the HD's profiles possible, including the custom ones?

    Every time that itivo produces an error (which is usually in comcut/subtitle phase in my experience) it starts downloading the entire show again. It'd be really great if itivo could process downloaded .tivo files (or even decrypted files) for ad removal purpose.

    Thanks

    Anyone have a problem with iTiVo getting stuck downloading a show? I've been trying for the last two days and it keeps stopping halfway through. The file is 20+ GB, really frustrating. As it get closer to halfway/toward the number of MB transferred will pause and it will say "waiting for TiVo" forever. Any suggestions? Eventually it will just start all over.

    I had the same problem even with 3Gb shows and was wondering if itivo can process .tivo files that's been already transferred through other apps...

    Burbank,...
    Any chance of getting an update that handles large Now Playing Lists better? Mine currently has over 700 items in it, and the performance of iTiVo varies from very sluggish to completely frozen.

    Hello, I am Adam Outler, author of MythSExx. I noticed that my program was mentioned in this thread.

    I am working on a new program called mythicalLibrarian. This program currently uses the power of the MythTV database for even more accurate identification of recordings and renaming of movies.

    I am trying to get support for iTivo integrated into mythicalLibrarian. I need some example information files, the files which accompany the iTivo recordings. I need two of each of the following: Movies, Episodes, and News/Sports/generic guide data where the program id begins with SH .

    Would someone be kind enough to help me out?

    What I want to do seems simple to me, yet I can't figure out the right moon-phase, knee-lift alignment to make it happen. ;-)

    How do I decode to H.264 with full video quality (SD or HD, whichever it is) and full audio quality (2 channel or 6 channel, which ever it is)?

    While you're waiting for a fix, why don't you send the back to the tivo and re-download them with iTivo?

    cumbersome, but it should work.

    Awesome. Thanks, I'll try that! And while we're at it: my holy grail would be to compress to mp4, keep original video quality/resolution, and have TWO audio streams: one mixed to two channels, one at the full 6. Crazy, I know... ;-)

    Hey all,

    If I use 5MB/s H264 with Quicktime I get nasty interlacing.
    If I use HandBrake I get great quality, but comskipper nukes the video/audio sync.

    Anyone have the settings to do COmskip -> 5MBps H.264 under OSX 10.6?

    Anyone know if files created by mencoder "decrypt" (mpg file type) setting will play back on the Tivo?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to control the outputted file name, possible via the advanced settings? I am transferring a whole season of a TV show, and want to know the order of the episodes via the file name. Using something like the show's date appended at the end in the file name would ideally be what I am looking to do.

    Related question - my wife is a reporter and I want to extract several 2-minute clips out of 30 minute Tivo'd newscasts to compile a DVD of stories that she's done. I was planning on using iTivo to pull the clips onto my Mac using the H.264 5mbps setting, and then importing them into iMovie 09 to edit them (and ultimately burn a DVD using iDVD). However, when they open in iMovie, they're a squeezed square rather than a 4:3 video. Is there any way I can fix this?

    Thanks!

    Adam

    Can iTiVo be used with a DirecTiVo? I have a series2 that I've opened up with the 'zipper' and put on my network. So, I have access to it, but I don't find a MAK to use with iTiVo.

    Thanks.

    I just downloaded and started using itivo. It looks promising. However, after downloading three shows, I keep getting the messafge that mencoder has quit . Now That's all I get. It won't down load any more shows. What can I do to fix this? I haven't even gotten into palying with iTivo or weeing what all it can do. I just wanted to download a few shows first. Any suggestions?

    I checked the FAQ & basic documentation page.. I hope I'm not missing the obvious.

    What are the two rectangular green button-ish things above the download/conversion progress bar? The left one seems always green, but I can toggle the right one.. but they don't seem to do anything.

    Also, I'm not quite sure how I can do as 'minimal' a conversion as possible. I mean, I know I can use 'decrypt only' to do the equivalent of just tivodecode.. But if I want it playable in Quicktime -- how can I get the audio & video to match the original? (Just remux them so QT works with it?)
