Advertisements It would be nice if Tivo Desktop could give us a couple of choices for conversion quality (bitrate) when converting videos for Ipod. I find the MP4 files that 2.5 produces to be a bit too large. Tivo defaults to converting at 700kbps video with 128kbps audio, and in 2.5 there is no way to change that. Personally, I prefer to use 512kbps with 128kbps audio for my Ipod. Tivo Desktop's default settings waste a couple of hundred extra MB per hour of video. It would be nice if Tivo Desktop gave us a Low, Medium, and High selection for conversion quality. High could be the highest bitrate the Ipod supports, Medium could be something more reasonable like 512kbps video/128kbps audio, and low could be something more modest for shows that don't have much movement, like 300kbps. This would allow us to squeeze more things onto our Ipod, and it would be a trivial modification to Tivo Desktop, since the only difference is passing a different bitrate parameter to the converter. Everything else would remain the same. You could even make each choice a combo-box, allowing the user to select his bitrate for each quality level. Again, trivial; it's just a number.
