Windows Video Tools Updated-Support for iPhone 4 and TS TiVo
Aunsoft has updated its Windows Video Tools including Video Converter, MKV Converter, MOD Converter, TOD Converter, MTS/M2TS Converter on June 19, 2010. With Video Converter’s new version, you can easily decrypt and convert recorded TS TiVo shows to MPEG, MP4, MOV, WMV, MPG, DV, AVI, etc without losing quality. And the new version added output profile of iPhone 4 H.264 720P (*.mp4), iPhone 4 MPEG-4 640*480 (*.mp4) for the iPhone 4 users. This means that you can convert HD videos, any recorded shows like 2010 FIFA World Cup games, common videos, etc to your iPhone 4 with high quality for enjoyment.
MKV Converter, MOD Converter, TOD Converter and MTS/M2TS Converter have also updated by adding the support for iPhone 4. That’s to say you can freely convert and transfer MKV, MOD, TOD and MTS/M2TS footages to iPhone 4 for playing with the corresponded converting tool.
What’s new?
A. Aunsoft Video Converter
1. Added support for decrypting and converting TS TiVo.
2. Added output profile of iPhone 4 (*.mp4) for iPhone 4 users.
B. Aunsoft MKV/MTS/MOD/TOD Converter
Added output profile of iPhone 4 (*.mp4) for iPhone 4 users.
What’s the details?
1. Previously Aunsoft Video Converter only supported decrypt and convert the TiVo files in MPEG2 stream format. Now with the effort of our R&D guys, the program added the support of TiVo files in MPEG2 Transport Stream (TS) format. You can freely type the MAK in Option-TiVo window, and then add your TS TiVo to the program for conversion and editing.

What is the best way to remove protection from TiVo videos?


Yes, TIVO recordings store the video using MPEG-2 compression and include copyright protection. To retain its intact video quality, you can use a copy-protection removal program. In this way, protection is removed and the original video will be kept to be compatible with common media player. The program I recommend is Pavtube Video Converter which provides "Directly copy" option. Just input your TIVO access key, choose directly copy and you will get copy-free MPEG 2 video with extreme speed. I bought this program mainly to convert recorded TIVO videos for my iPad 3. This program provides presets for ipad. The output videos play perfectly in my iPad. http://www.pavtube.com/video_converter/

I have a 9320 humax hard drive recorder which keeps freezing the only way to restart the box is switch it off and back on again, i am losing lots of recording with this problem


This may help, especially if an update has gone wrong;
Turn off
Unplug aerial and turn on
Perform a defaults reset (you'll lose scheduled recordings and any changes you have made to settings)
Turn off
Plug in aerial
Turn on and perform a second defaults reset.

If that doesn't do it, please repost.

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!

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

By changing the type of recording from extended play to the shorter ones the quality increases just like on a VHS.

Im not sure why he can't record certain channels because Tivo can and you can transfer those to a computer, he might have to call his cable company there.

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.
