I recently got a DirecTV Tivo system (the Samsung Series 2) to be specific. I would like to know how I can transfer files from my TiVo to my computer for burning. I have a Dell Inspiron 9200 laptop with Sonic Record Now Plus software. I am not married to this software and would be willing to buy something else if needed - but I don't want to spend money on something that isn't going to work. Call me innocent, but this doesn't seem that it should be so hard. I have a cable card slot in the box, so I was thinking that this might be as simple as transferring the shows to a cable card and then buying a cable card reader for the computer - but I'm not sure if that even exists. I'm really a massive beginner here. All lamens terms are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance - My son would really really love it if this is possible.
