Hi, I'm new to Tivo and I had some questions I'm hoping someone can answer for me. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the software and methods I am seeing out there for getting content to and from your Tivo.
I have a Tivo HD that I just bought Saturday and so far I am absolutely LOVING it. The Amazon Unbox service is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and not to mention all the other cool apps that it comes with!!!! Not a bad deal for less than $300!
Anyhow, I have a Windows Vista PC and a Macbook running OSX 10.5.1 I have Tivo desktop running on both machines, and it seems to work fine, however I am finding the Tivo desktop for the Mac to be a little lacking in features compared to the Windows version. I like to keep all of my media on my Macbook, that is what I take with me everyday. As I understand it, Toast will give me TivotoGo ability on my Macbook so I can watch transferred shows, but seeing the "TiVo Fall 2007 Update Apparently Breaks TivoToGo/Toast on the Mac" suggests there may be some problems :/
So with that being said, what is the best way to get video to and from my Tivo using a Mac? I would like to be able to transfer videos I've downloaded off of the internet (such as video podcasts for example), and transfer recorded shows from my Tivo to the Mac for viewing later.
Is Toast the best solution for this or are there any better alternatives?
