    I mainly just want to be able to get my recordings to my computer
    I have a tivo series2
    I have an intel macbook with toast titanium 7
    I have a video ipod
    I am smart ;)
    I don't have much time to invest (can't even watch my shows at home- hence this project)

    I have never had a need to set up a network at my apartment and I don't yet know how to link my computer to it.
    I have a cheap router (new in unopened box)
    Should I connect using the router in between or can I just use a CAT5 patch cable?
    My Tivo connects to the server on it's dialup modem. I do not have internet at my apartment (laptop seems to be able to connect somehow :)

    I haven't downloaded TivoToGo yet.
    Will TivoDecodeManager be a better substitute?

    You need, the router, and create a network, after that the Tivo Desktop, and Rixio Toast 8 and after that you have all you need, with the Toast 8 you transfer the files to your Mac and the export them to your Itunes for a leter Ipod use.
