How to convert TiVo files to iPad/ iPad Wi-Fi+ 3G on Mac?

According to Apple, iPad gives up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. By any means, it is a great portable video player. So why not transfer you TiVo recordings to iPad? No matter where you are, whenever it is, just take out the iPad and enjoy your favorite TV programs or football matches freely! Nice idea, isnít it? In the following guide I would like to share with you how to get your TiVo recordings ready for iPad (iPad Wi-Fi +3G). In order to enjoy TiVo recordings on iPad, you got to transfer TiVo to your Mac and then convert the TiVo files to iPad compatible formats.

1. Transfer TiVo recordings to Mac (or MacBook)

Once youíve recorded your favorite shows on your TiVo box, you can transfer them to your Mac with certain software as long as your TiVo box is connected to your home network. Although the TiVo Desktop software for the Mac (supplied by TiVo) does not allow user to transfer TiVo recordings to Mac, there are other freeware can accomplish this task, like the TiVoDecode Manager. Run the app, enter your TiVo's IP address in the TiVo IP Address box. Next click the Prefs button in the lower-right corner. Fill in the Media Access Key. A list of shows on your TiVo will appear in the Now Playing list. Select the show and click Add Show To Queue. The selected show now appears in the Download Queue list. Click Download Location to select where you want to save it. The app allows you to convert TiVo shows to MPEG-4 video for iPod. Of course you can play these TiVo shows with QuickTime Player. To convert the recordings for iPad, you can use Pavtube Mac TiVo to iPad Converter.
