TiVo Desktop Plus Very Poor Quality - Suggestions?

Hi Guys,

I ended up paying for Tivo Desktop Plus last night thinking I would be able to get decent quality conversions for ipad and appleTV viewing but it seems like none of the codecs give you even reasonable quality. Is there something better available or can I tweak Tivo Desktop in some fashion to allow me to keep the HD quality on the video?

Thanks for any help.

Do I need Tivo Desktop to make that work?

It will take more work to set up, but the benefits are tremendous. I was also very disappointed at TiVo Desktop Plus and I regretted that purchase almost immediately. kmttg is free and does a whole lot more than TiVo Desktop Plus can.

Not at all. But you already have it anyway, so why do you ask?

They were nice enough to credit me back the purchase and I will definitely give kmttg a try as per your suggestion.

is there any difference between the windows and Mac versions?

There is only one version of kmttg, it's a Java app.
