TiVo transfer incomplete

Check if the file size of the download matches the size on the TiVo, so you can tell if the problem is the download or the file conversion.
If it's the download, one of the more common download problems is that the buffer in the TiVo doesn't clear. You may find it helps to do hard reset of your tivo. This involved unplugging it for about 6 hours.
I'm currently working on a workaround that involves returning the TiVo and putting the money towards something less buggy.

I am answering my own question! I uninstalled and reinstalled TiVo Desktop for Mac and tried again. It is now working.

I have noticed that the sleep mode in OS X 10.8.2 is quite aggressive, and while Tivo Transfer should prevent sleep while transfering files it does not. For some reason when the machine is awake again the incomplete file is passed to Toast for conversion even though it is not complete.
Extending the sleep time in Energy Saver is a poor workaround as it means my machine is wasting power all the times when Tivo Transfer is not copying files from the Tivo, but it is the only workaround I have found.
I don't know how to submit bugs to Roxio, but Tivo Transfer and the Tivo application should leverage the caffeinate command during file transfers and file conversion.

But yes must aggrea with previous poster the original software from Tivo does a more reliable job at downloading and converting videos then Toast.
