cTiVo is a free Mac application to download shows from your TiVo (Roamio, Premiere, HD, S3 or S2 devices) and convert them to many popular formats and devices. Its goal is to be extremely simple to set up and use, but very flexible. cTiVo provides complete hands-off operation: once you choose or subscribe to your shows, everything else is automated. For example, after you've set it up, every morning, you will find all your favorite shows from your TiVos loaded onto your iPhone or iPad.

I am new to MacUpdate today. I have a MacBook Air and the new OS. I just found cTivo and am very happy I did. My problem is that when I try to use cTivo on a movie I recorded on my Tivo, which is 3 hrs. long (due to advertisements), cTivo only converts about a quarter of the file. What it converts is awesome but obviously I need the whole file converted. Anybody have a solution out there? Thanks in advance.

Wonderful, just wonderful. And the only game in town for converting TiVo shows for use on other devices

iTivo is an outdated app. Yes, it works, but it's functionality is limited compared to https://code.google.com/p/kmttg/, which I have been using for the past few years. I submitted it to MacUpdate but they didn't list it. Give it a try.
