    Is there a good utility that I can use (besides cTivo) for transferring my .Tivo files to my mac, and then converting them to .mp4 files?

    I've used cTivo for years, and after I upgraded to Mojave it's no longer working. Under Local Network Tivos (found by selecting these menu options: cTivo\Preferences\Tivo), I have one Tivo listed when there should be two listed. However, even when I had both listed, cTivo was not loading the videos from these two Tivo. There's a message on the left of the screen that keeps spinning displaying "Searching for Tivos...."

    There is no documentation telling me how to re-add the local Tivo on cTivo's website. cTivo is unreliable right now for my usage.
    Is there any other software that I can use to transfer my .Tivo files to my mac for converting to mp4?

    This happened a few months ago with cTivo (before the Mojave upgrade) and it was the same problem.

    I'd post in the cTivo thread to see if you can get support for your issue.
