    Mac's can transfer via TivoToGo virtually as well as PC's.
    kmttg and pyTivo and cTivo work.

    Copy-flagged recordings of course do not.

    How do you get the cover off to get to the internal harddrive. I only see 2 screws one above the esata port and one above the HDMI port. Or is there one somewhere I can't see.

    What model TiVo? The basic Roamio takes some brute force. Ignore the one above the HDMI port. Correct screws are black.

    One torx screw on the back. Leave the one over the HDMI port alone.
    What's left are snaps on the left and right sides. 3 per side, work them from the back side going forward.
    Oh, and there's a hook in the front which should be left alone until the snaps are cleared.

    So that's (unscrew) back, then sides, then front,
    slowly creeping forward.

    I found there are some ways that are more finesse than force but doesn't really matter as long as you don't break any of the plastic.
