I am a newbie to this forum and did some searches but couldn't find the answer to this.... Is there a way I can copy my shows and movies from Tivo to my pc so I can burn them onto DVD?

More info. needed.

What model TiVo ?

Is it a standalone TiVo ?

Directv/TiVo combo ?

TiVo/DVD burner combo unit ?

If it's a new model you just bought, all the info. you need is in the manual that came with it.
It is a stand alone series 2 that I have had for a while.

first you need a home network that your PC is on and then choose from this list of adapters to hook your TiVo to the home network
http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv2006.htm?

after that you install TiVo desktop software on your PC and go from there.

check out the TiVoToGo forum here for a lot more info and the better place for follow up questions

thanks!! The only question I have left is whether or not I really need to use that SonicMYDVD software of it any DVD burning software will work.
check out http://prish.com/etivo/ and some opensource software called directshowdump.
after you use that you can burn DVDs with anything. Neroexpress has been used by others directly on .tivo files as well. I have never used mySonicDVD myself it adds very little to the TiVo process

I too am looking for this info. I have a DirecTV/TiVo combo that I would like to hook up to my laptop to so that I have burn recorded shows and things to DVD's. How? Thanks!
DirecTV does not allow that and has turned off the USB ports even. you need to go the underground forum here to find some folks that can help you out.

I already have the Tivo desktop software installed on my laptop and am waiting for the adapter to arrive. Should I uninstall the software and then reinstall it after I put the adapter on the Tivo?

nope, but you will have to be patient and wait a bit after you put the adapter on for them to see each other. Rebooting the PC can help as well.

also go to www.tivo.com - manage my account and check off "enable file sharing" on your TiVo now.

Duct tape.

Hey, it'll connect them, right? :D

What are you so mad about, there have been about 5 sets of perfectly clear directions linked to in the thread. :confused:
