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
