    How do I save a show (which is currently on my TiVo Bolt) to a USB drive so I can give it to a friend who wants to watch it?

    Connect the USB drive to a laptop or PC and use one of the many programs available to download the program from the TiVo via a network connection, decrypting the TiVo-specific file in the process.

    See KMTTG, Archivo, PyTivo, PyTivo Desktop, TiVo Desktop, and pick your poison.

    Just be aware, some shows may be set by your provider (if on cable) so they cannot be downloaded.

    Good point.

    Helpfully, the mentioned programs mostly provide some visual indication that a given program is copy-protected and cannot be transferred.

    It does when using the PC program to transfer the content.
