For people who hardly have time to sit down and watch something from the comfort of their living room couch, it's easier to transfer the Tivo recordings to a laptop computer so they can watch things on the fly.
TiVo provides free recording transfer software Tivo Desktop for PC users, but Mac users need to shell out $80 for Roxio Toast to move recordings to Mac. Fortunately, the open source community has come to the rescue with three fantastic apps iTivo, TiVo File Decoder and SeasonPassGetter that make transferring shows a breeze.
Once you've transferred your recorded TiVo shows to your Mac, you can create DVDs that you can play in your DVD player.
There are many DVD burning software but many can't recognize the Tivo format. Tivo to DVD Creator Mac is the simple to use application for Mac users to convert and burn Tivo to DVD for Mac Lion with few steps.
