    Hello, I didn't Tivo Lost, and my parnter deleted it from the Comcast DVR (pos).

    Any ideas how I can download to my computer, instead of watching it on abc.com?

    You can buy it on iTunes for $1.99.

    VideoDownloader won't cut it. iTunes is your easiest bet.

    Torrent is the easiest bet actually. Get it in widescreen HD rip that way, iTunes probably is 4:3.

    Considering the 11 page thread on the topic with over 300 postings, iTunes is a much better, lowest common denominator.

    My mom can use bittorrent without a problem and I'm not saying she's stupid, but she's completely computer illiterate.

    Yeah I know, all my friends and family use it. Why some have problems I have no idea. I use TorrentStorm just because I don't like java clients. I have no problems what so ever. And it is free and I am sure better quality. HDTV rips are DVD clear and crisp.

    Hey folks thanks for the suggestions. I got thru lost on the Plane today, via my Itunes. Sure worked in a pinch. Moral of the story don't rely on partner to save the right programs on the DVR, and always have backup on the Tivo!

    Heh. Teaching my dad how to download, install, and use bittorrent over the phone was lots of fun. What was hardest was teaching the concept what how it worked, especially since he used Kazaa.
