Here's a link to cTiVo, thanks for the heads up, bruiz!

cTiVo looks promising, but I am having better results with com skip in iTivo.

Odd. Last time I tried iTiVo with comskip enabled, it got stuck on that step.

I tried a couple of TV shows in both apps. The commercials were mostly still in the shows downloaded with cTivo, but when I used iTivo for the same shows iTivo had better results on cutting the commercials.

Strange, considering (I think?) they both use the same "comskip" program to do the deed.

It is strange, I don't understand why it would make any difference.

Check/compare comskip.ini in each.

Hours to transfer 1 show--what am i doing wrong

hello, thanks to cautionespn for the workaround, enabled me to start transferring file, previously"unable to download". BUT---it's been going on for 5 hours already, and still 1-1/2 hours away from finishing step 3 of 3. chose Mped-2 as file format; plan to view on my MacBook. Should i use one of the other file formats for a quicker transfer? thanks for the advice for this transfer newbie!

I'm fairly new to iTiVo and decided to give it a whirl. I've used KMTTG since last fall when I purchased my TiVo but being the foolhardy guy that I am, I thought I'd give iTiVo a try.

I like the interface, how thoughtfully it is designed and the polished appearance.

I carefully set iTiVo up as instructed to work around recent difficulties experienced by other users. To my delight but puzzlement, iTiVo came to life, but it immediately complained that it couldn't see my TiVo. I double-checked everything, tried again and just ignored the message and hit 'Okay.'

My TiVo popped right up and after a moment, all the programming scrolled down. Excellent! I lined up a bunch of programming in queue, began the downloading and hardly had I sipped my Coke than I was told that the connection had been lost. I hit 'Okay' and it was back again, but now I had a "Waiting for TiVo" bubble and no way to dismiss it.

Yet a moment after that, the download began anew, but all the way from the beginning, essentially starting all over from scratch.

I don't have an option to plug a line in from my Mini to the TiVo Premiere across the house so I'm doing it wirelessly. I never had an issue with a wireless connection to download TiVo programming before. Is there something I'm overlooking or messing up?

@javabird, in developing cTiVo, we did find a problem with our compilation of the 64bit version of comskip, which has been fixed. (Our first version was skipping commercials in the first 32MB of the file.)

Aah, that explains it. I'll try the newest version again. Thanks.

Love the sound of iTivo and would love to give it whirl. Is it available to Australian Tivo users?

Both iTiVo and the newer cTiVo should work the same for the Australian TiVo; haven't heard of any differences in its support for offloading videos. Give it a try and let us know if you have a problem.

The accursed red C

cTivo sees my TivoHD on my network, while iTivo doesn't.

But 99% of the listed programs have the red C and are unavailable to me. (I'm a Time Warner Cable customer in NYC.)

Is there a workaround out there anywhere for this? I have no intention of illegally redistributing the programs or anything; I just want to watch them on my computer or iphone when traveling.

iTivo works for me but there is a lag. You have to click Connect and then wait for it to load. cTivo is much faster.

Unfortunately, there isn't a solution for the red problem, unless you have a Tivo stream I guesss (I don't have one so can't vouch for that solution).

Download from Tivo Stops Before Completion

Two nights ago, (11/15/2013), Tivo pushed an update to my Tivo box. Since then, iTivo downloads pause at around 50%. Eventually, iTivo stops trying and the resulting file is incomplete. Anyone else having this issue?

Also, no one has posted to this forum in awhile. Is anyone still using iTivo? Has everyone switched to another application I don't know about?

Thanks!

Download From Tivo Stops Before Completion

Update:

I have now tried iTivo, cTivo, and kmttg all with the exact same result.
Shows that are one hour in length (roughly 5000MG) only download to 50% (or 30 min). I have tried all three downloaders (above). I have power-cycled the Tivo, airport, etc.

I did NOT have this issue until recently so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the update that Tivo pushed out two nights ago (11/15). Is anyone else having this issue? Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks!

Update 2: After further experimentation, this issue only happens with certain episodes and not all. I'm guessing it has to do with some glitch with the original file…or the way it was saved to my Tivo box. Hmmmm….

I'm still using iTivo but am considering a switch to kmttg, since the latter is still under development while iTiVo is not.

I had to downgrade the OS on one Mac to make iTiVo work better. I'm just guessing that KMTTG runs on the latest OS X Mavericks.

I have been using cTivo all day since Fofer recommended it to me earlier (scroll up).

It works great! I've tried all three and cTivo is a lot more user friendly than kmttg in my opinion.
