Better quality transfers with pyTivoX?

I have a Tivo Premiere, Mac Mini running OSX10.8.2 and pyTivoX v1.3. Despite downloading 720p clips, after transferring them to the Tivo, I loose a lot of quality - what am I doing wrong?

One problem is that you're using pyTivoX 1.3 with a Premiere. That version predates the Premiere, so it doesn't recognize it as an HD TiVo, and encodes the video as though for a Series 2.

You can try the beta, or abandon pyTivoX in favor of straight pyTivo.
