Advertisements My TiVO is getting pretty full of programs I'd like to keep, & I realized too late that I could have saved them at a much lower resolution. I know there's an ethernet jack, and references to home networking in the manual, so I think "no prob"... Silly me, I connected my Series 3 HD via cross-over cable to my iBook (G4 OS 10.4), thinking the HD would show up on my desktop. I called TiVO to ask about this, & their tech suggested I check THIS forum for a free (or expensive) way to do this. I've searched this forum, & I'm still pretty confused about how to do this. I've seen something about TiVO settings that aren't referenced in my manual, & other posts that imply I must have Toast to do this. Perhaps someone will help me, more plainly than other posts I've seen? Can someone walk me through how to connect to my Mac, how to find the proper settings (both in the Mac & TiVO), how to move the files to my Mac & then back them up to DVDs? If I MUST have software, what will I need that is compatible with my iBook, that I can get for free or cheap? Thank you, in advance!
