    Is there any way to trim or clip a portion of a show after it has recorded? On the TiVo or the iPad app would be fine. Thanks!

    No, youd have to offload it onto a PC.

    You can download to the iphone/ipad app from the paused point of a show.

    I actually did that, but then it still downloaded the remainder of the show (I only was looking for about 2 minutes of the 25 left from that point). Is there a way to chop the back end?

    The only other option was to record a given show again when it is re-run and start and stop the recording manually to grab the portion that I want. But I'd have to be there clicking the remote exactly when it airs.

    Maybe somehow dumping to a PC or Mac and editing is the "easiest" way.

    You can kind of do it if you start from pause point and then monitor the progress and stop the download after it gets to the end of the segment you want.

    That is VERY easy.

    1) download with kmttg
    2) use a video editing program (e.g. AVI Demux or MPEG StreamClip on the Mac) to simply cut out the sections you don't want
    3) save file
