    So I still can’t transfer my shows from Tivo to my Mac?! Ugh.

  • megazone

    Yes, you can – you can transfer shows to/from a Mac. Have been able to for a while. Galleon will do this. Transfer to a Mac can be done with a browser too.

    You can’t *play* them on the Mac. That won’t come until the 2.x desktop for Mac later this year.

    I guess I keep missing this for some reason. Can I then get them to my ipod? I’ve been able to do that with other videos, hopefully I can do the same for these files. What browser will let me transfer to a Mac?

    Again, thanks for your input as usual.

    There isn’t much you can do with them on a Mac right now other than transfer back to a TiVo. So you can use the Mac as storage or an archive, that’s about it. No moving to an iPod, etc, because you need to decrypt them – and that’s Windows-only right now.

    Any browser can transfer. Go to https://the-ip-of-your-TiVo

    I’ve heard you can actually do stuff with the files once you get them over. I can’t even figure out how to install Galleon, I feel so stupid. Oh well, I can just wait patiently for TTG to work with Mac soon.
