    Still looking for an easy way to download TiVo recordings to my Mac. Have tried alot of jury rigs but nothing easy to use.

    Yes, kmttg. It's a Java app, so it's slightly lowest-common-denominator UI, and if I ever get to trying to play with a Java app, I'd probably want to try to add a user-defined list of channels to always download in transport stream from (since shows do have glitches when downloaded in transport stream, so I want to do it only when absolutely necessary), and there's no way it can tell from the Tivo if it needs TS or not.

    There are different software packages available out there to download shows to your PC. However, I am still confused if that is legal or not. Can anyone comment if it is OK to download shows or not? I think it is probably not OK because of which we see more of the sites like torrent becoming more famous.

    There's no problem with downloading for your own use. Just don't share it.

    And many shows are copy protected and won't be able to be played on a PC

    From your TiVo - yes. From the web - generally no.
