    I have shows that I transferred from my TiVo unit to an iPad. Since then my TiVo unit had a disk failure and was replaced. I haven't had a chance to watch those transferred shows yet and I'm concerned that, if TiVo ever releases the claimed iOS app update and I install it, that I'll lose those shows. Is there any way to transfer those shows from my iPad back to my TiVo unit?

    No.

    (One could imagine a laborious and quality-degrading process involving AirPlay and video capture hardware/software, but there's no built-in way to return the shows back to the DVR.)

    Thanks anyway. It's too bad TiVo doesn't provide any sort of backup capability for DVR content.

    Well, had you offloaded the unprotected content to a PC, you'd be able to restore it to the TiVo (assuming it's not running the TE4 software). Though it's fair to say that *TiVo* doesn't really provide this capability, anymore.

    TiVo used to provide a backup capability?

    Is there any information about when the rewritten TiVo iOS app might be released? Until that happens I suppose my downloaded content is safe.

    I have automatic updates turned off. But it's too easy to hit the "Update All" button out of habit.
