    Once it's subscribed, go into your account online at TiVo and enable downloads & transfers. Wait a few hours then force a daily call to to pick up the changes. Once the TiVoToGo status in the System Information screen reads "a,a,a" you will be able to transfer shows.

    You can use the official TiVo Desktop software, or any one of several 3rd-party alternatives like pyTivo, kmttg etc. The Home Media forum here is the best place to look for more info.
