    #1 - why is it that i can record a show on my series 2 tivo and transfer it to my mac
    but when i record the same show on my tivoHD it is copy protected and can not transfer?
    this is a issue because the series 2 of course is not in HD
    so any HD programs i record can not be transfered in HD

    #2 - if i use toast 8 and convert a .tivo file to another format in order to remove commercials and whatnot the audio is always off by a few seconds
    am i doing something wrong here?

    #1 is most likely something that your cable company is doing (you may very well be recording a digital simulcast of the same channel on the TiVoHD that has copy protection flags inappropriately applied.)

    #2 is an acknowledged bug in Toast 8 (that may or may not exist in Toast 9) that Roxio is promising a fix for "real soon now". Per Mirka at Roxio, via Dave Zatz you can contact TivoFiles@roxio.com if you want to get problematic files to Roxio so they can be sure they catch all the variants of the problem.
