Tivo Premierdownload to Mac kmttg or citivo, paid help

Problem with old tivo and all files didn't transfer over to new Tivo so I'd like to download them to my iMac. I researched and heard about kmttg and citivo. There may be others. I am not a computer wiz and couldn't even get the new beta version of citivo to download. Is there anyone I could hire in NJ area to come over and set it up and teach me??? Any suggestions??

Would love to archive some shows onto mac or external hard drive. I know how to record streaming video if that is an easier option but seems like airplay is only for iPads/iphones.

Some of the software is for older Mac and some software is for new Mac's. Better post what Mac you have. That's Model and OS version.

If you were unable to transfer certain recordings to a different TiVo (why? I assume there were error messages?), then it's doubtful that you'll be able to copy them to a computer, either. It's a similar process, except that transferring to a computer entails more processing of the stream, so it's more sensitive to glitches in the recording than TiVo-to-TiVo transfer.

Still need help

I have new iMac with OS X Yosemite. Electronics company didn't tell me error message just said some shows wouldn't transfer over (they also didn't know how to download to computer). Looking for individual or company to pay to download shows to computer. If anyone can help or has suggestions it would be much appreciated as I don't know where to go for help

More information is needed from you. Are the shows copy protected? Why do you want to transfer them to a your computer? To watch them on your computer? Who is this "electronics company" you speak of?

The problem you run into is that the kind of people who have that type of expertise charge HUGE hourly rates for their professional work, and are not apt to drop over to your house for less, but many of them have this generosity of spirit to provide assistance for free to those willing to work and learn in forums like these. Finding some level of assistance BETWEEN those two extremes is difficult.

So your best bet is probably to make an effort to more fully define and describe your problem and work with the help provided here. You may find it satisfying and rewarding.

If you really can't get into it, I could probably find some people in your area to recommend, but you'd be looking at at least a few hundred bucks and based on what little you've said so far the result could simply be confirming that what you want to do won't work.
