Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing

Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing

Starting from June 11 to July 11, there are 64 games for the FIFA World Cup, which is held in South Africa this year. Even though most of us could not go to the 10 stadiums in 9 cities of South Africa, we can stay in front of the HD TV, and watch the favorite teams to goal. We can use the sports collections of TiVo to get the events and web content, and even record with TiVo Premiere.
After recording the first half of the game between Brazil and Democratic People Republic of Korea (DPRK) for the World Cup, I would like to put the first half to my Network Attached Storage (NAS) so as to continue recording the second half. However, the first half does not work on my TV in the bedroom. My friend recommended me to convert TiVo to MPEG for home network devices with Aunsoft Video Converter. I think it is the perfect tool for TiVo videos, as it exports MPEG files within a blink. Thus, I want to share with you my experiences.
I first use TiVo desktop software named TiVoToGo to transfer the TiVo videos to my computer, and run the TiVo to MPEG converter to rip TiVo for my NAS. You can download the TiVo desktop software. To rip the transferred TiVo to MPEG, just follow the steps below.
Step 1. Load TiVo videos to Aunsoft Video Converter.
Click the Add button to load FIFA World Cup TiVo videos. While we have enter the Media Access Key (MAK) for TiVo video when using the TiVoToGo, the program does not ask me for the MAK again from the same TiVo Premiere. However, if the TiVo video is from different TiVo Premiere, the program will pop up a window for you to enter the MAK.
Step 2. Choose directly copy TiVo videos on the program.
Click the "Format" option and find the "Copy" group. There is only one option Directly Copy under the group. Just choose "Directly Copy" and the program will convert World Cup TiVo videos to MPEG fleetly.

Step 3. Convert TiVo to MPEG
Click the convert button under the preview window and the conversion from TiVo to MPEG starts immediately.
Step 4. Transfer MPEG videos to NAS.
Use the wired or wireless network and transfer the output videos to NAS. It is very easy to make the TiVo videos
With the directly copy function of the TiVo to MPEG converter, you do not need to change the bit rate and frame rate settings, as the program will use the original settings of the TiVo video. If you want to convert TiVo video to portable devices like iPad, iPhone 4G, iPhone 3G, Zune, you can choose from the format and change the bit rate and resolution for output videos.

How to Convert World Cup FIFA 2010 Camera Videos to HDTV? The South Africa World Cup FIFA began from June 11, 2010 and the second matches between teams starts. I am glad to know to Argentina won South Korea with 4:1. If you are lucky enough like my brother, you can shoot videos during the games at spot, even from the auditorium. However, my brother came back soon after he watched the game between Argentina and South Korea. He sent me the videos he captured during the vocation and asked me to help him merge the videos for watching and sharing on HDTV. With his Sony Cyber-shot DSC- HX5V, the video comes out as .mts format. His videos contain not only the FIFA World Cup games with Lionel Messi from Argentina team, but also the sightseeing he visited. I find Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter an easy tool to join the clips into one file and make it the memories for South Africa FIFA. Just follow the steps below and you can make your AVCHD camera videos for World Cup. Step 1. Load Sony MTS videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter. With the bundled software Picture Motion Browser, it is easy to capture the .mts videos from Sony Cyber-shot HX5V to my computer. Run the AVCHD MTS joiner and click the "Add" button to load South Africa FIFA camera videos. Step 2. Choose HD MPEG output for HDTV. Nowadays, High-definition Television supports many different kinds of formats and to ensure the output HD video works for most HDTV, I click the Format option and choose HD Video > MPEG-2 for HDTV. To ensure the video quality of the output .mpg video, I also click the "Settings" button and choose original option for the Bitrate. Step 3. Merge video clips into one file. The AVCHD MTS joiner provides keep option to merge mts videos. Just make sure the checkbox for Merge into one file is ticked, and the videos will be joined together after the conversion starts. Step 4. Convert Sony MTS to MPEG for HDTV. Click the convert button under the preview window and the conversion from Sony .mts to HDTV .mpg starts immediately. With the step3 we mentioned above, the FIFA World Cup videos in South Africa will be merged with one file output. Tips: 1. Before the mts conversion with joining several avchd mts videos, you can select the video on file list and click the move up or move down button to arrange the sequence of the videos. 2. After the mts joiner finishes conversion, just share the output videos to HDTV via UPnP or transfer the .mpg video to NAS for sharing. 3. If you are using Mac computer, you shall not use Picture Motion Browser in step1. Instead, you can use iPhoto to transfer mts from Sony camera to iMac and the Mac MTS joiner to merge video clips.
