To transfer shows from TiVo to the Mac, I prefer cTiVo.

As for transcoding SD to HD, I'm not sure why you'd do that. It would take up additional space with no increase in quality. That said, cTiVo does have some options to automatically transcode as it downloads shows. I don't use them because I just save shows as Decrypted TiVo Shows which allows me to send them back to the TiVo as-is using pyTiVo.

Another option for transcoding might be HandBrake.

KMTTG is fantastic. It archives from the Tivo, and can encode at the same time.

kmttg by far. It's Java, so has slightly hokey lowest common denominator UI... But it mostly "just works", and the author is fairly responsive. (I'm only slightly disparaging that since I have one slightly edge case exception that I and others can reproduce, but the author can't, so apparently hasn't put in a workaround.)
