Auto Transfer using Tivo Desktop then to an Android

Curious if anyone records a show in HD and also non HD if they intend to transfer it to a tablet or mobile device? I have a 3 hour HD recording that is 10gig that I'd like to put on an Android tablet weekly but don't want to take up 10gig. are there ways to shrink it so its 10% the size?

Thank you,

You need to recode it. I'd recommend dropping the resolution and framerate to 1280x720@29.97fps and saving to an H.264 MP4 file. That should reduce the file size a lot. If you edit out the commercials it'll save even more space.

Shameless plug... you should try VideoReDo it can do all of those things in one step.
