TiVoTool allows you to download, stream, or burn videos from your Series 1 or 2 TiVo or DTiVo. It is a front-end tool (perl script) and GUI ( for OS X 10.4) to pull MPEG2 files (.ty unscrambled) off of TiVo (via vserver hack) for playing in QuickTime 7 with the MPEG2 plug-in.

You need vserver running on your TiVo for TiVoTool to work. vserver can be found here.

Good thing I read the specs for this app. I have a series 3 Tivo and an Intel MacPro running the latest version of Lion.

Earlier versions used to work on my old G4, but installing this latest version on my Intel iMac produced a window that just says "can't fork: No such file or directory" when I click Refresh.

Unfortunately all the help links point to web pages that no longer exist - which shows the value of including the help files with the program!

After some fiddling, I found you needed to copy vstream-client from /Library/Application Support/TivoTool to /usr/local/bin - everything started working then.

Intel users - it's also worth downloading ffmpegX and copying the ffmpeg file from inside that app's package to /Library/Application Support/TivoTool - it'll convert a *lot* faster without Rosetta in the way :)
