Copy TiVo'ed shows to DVD using OS X and Toast 6
Authored by: siliconjones on Nov 17, '03 01:23:49AM

This is one of the reasons I want a tivo so bad.

All though I think this is a far more elegant solution and the result would look quite a bit nicer as it would not require resampling of the data. This requires a tivo with the home media option.

Or try a ReplayTV

ReplayTV's video files are easily extracted with DVArchive (http://dvarchive.sourceforge.net/) and then processed with Replay Tools (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?s=53560a106465b525d63eb25ddd77c2f7&threadid=314017&perpage=20&highlight=toolkit&pagenumber=1).

Then drop into Toast 6 and burn! No Home Media kit required.

A great resource for ReplayTV and Mac compatibility is MacReplayTV forums: http://www.designwork.net/macreplaytv/index.php

Have fun!

I have to agree on the ReplayTV. TiVo has the better marketing and the household name but the ReplayTV is a superior product. DVArchive is fantastic open source - allows me to use my Blue & White as a 2nd Replay, I can watch shows live streaming (through Quicktime) over Airport no problem, move shows to take on a flight (normal MPEG-2 natively) ... and best of all, you don't get soaked for "media capabilities" from Replay like TiVo does to you. You shouldn't pay money to use features of your device, that's silly. TiVo still doesn't come with Ethernet - you need a USB dongle. What is that? How 2001 PC Laptop is that?

I love my ReplayTV 5000 series... get a small one (40 hr), put a big HD in your G3/G4 tower on the same network - and have tons more Replay storage. Burn to VCD, DVD, whatever you like - no hardware or conversions necessary.
