    drkmstr, you're a rock star. Thanks for the easy-to-follow steps!

    (FYI: Without the "s" on "http" I kept getting a "welcome to TiVo" screen touting the TiVo box features.)

    Given the fact it's been four months since this thread began, it appears Roxio isn't updating TiVo Transfer...? My big concern was whether or not it would be Mavericks-compatible. Apparently, the issue is whether or not TiVo Transfer is TiVo-compatible. Who knew? :::sigh:::

    I'm very frustrated too. I don't understand why Tivo, Inc. relies on a 3rd party company to create what should be a very simple app to transfer files to a Mac. If it could be done over a web browser and if there are independent programmers doing this on their own time for free (i.e., PyTivo), they should be able to do this themselves. Tivo, Inc. is a multi-million dollar corporation. I don't believe this is asking too much.

    Especially since you can download recorded shows to your iOS device with the Tivo app and Tivo Stream. I think they have focused on mobile and left the mac software to the web browser workaround.

    So, I guess it's still not there? I'm now transferring something to my HD tivo so I can download to the mac and try to burn it for a friend.

    Old thread I know....but we just got a new Roamio and from what I've read here and elsewhere, Roxio never did update Tivo Transfer to recognize Roamios? Not working for me anyhow, though it still sees my old Series 2 and Tivo HD.

    No, and Roxio says nothing about Tivo either way on their web pages for Toast 14. While you can use cTivo to perform the download and then use Toast to convert it to another format, the embedded mplayer encoder in cTivo works quicker than Toast. My suggestion is not to update to a newer Toast if cTivo works for you.
