Then sync them to iPad for watching on my travel.

No video from an Apex digital converter box to TIVO


You may have to set the channel 3/4 switch on the lower right rear of your TiVo to match the output setting of your Apex converter. If your Apex converter is equipped for L/R audio and video output you will get better results using a three-conductor cable to connect to your TiVo.

When my Tivo stops recording a show on, say, channel 54, instead of staying on channel 54 it switches to channel 5. In other words, it only gets ''part'' pf the channel number. This happens with other...


The end of the IR Cable that attaches to your cable box may have to be repositioned.

Try moving it a small distance (you are already close or you wouln't be receiving ANY channel changing info. from it) and see if that helps.

Good luck!

TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels


Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing Starting from June 11...


Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MPEG for NAS Sharing
fifa-world-cup-tivo-nas.jpg
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
Tips:
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.
