I did find a solution to this. The programs do automatically go to iTunes and they can be transferred to an iPad or iPhone or iPod. The trick is waiting..a very long time. The TiVo server converts the programs if you wait serval hours. I would select programs to transfer, go to bed leave my computer on with TiVo desktop AND iTunes running. The programs transferred by morning. I suppose it might be faster if I had a super fast Internet connection, but I don't.
