Tivo Transfer (Mac) Grabbing Front Screen After Each Transfer

Question

I am using Mac OS 10.8.4 and Tivo Transfer 2.0.

 

I set up a series of movies I want TT to grab. It does this fine, but everytime a movie is complete, TT transfers me to that screen and app. I am usually in the middle of something else at the time, and it is _never_ convenient.

 

Any way to turn this off, and just tell TT to do its thing quietly in the background?

I haven't noticed it doing that but it is rare when I transfer multiple programs and I may have left the app in front when doing so. Have you seen if hiding the app makes a difference.

I just tested it. Minimized the app, switched to a different Space and did something else. When the transfer was complete, the Mac switched to the TT Space, even though I was in the middle of typing a sentence (actually middle of a word...). TT was still minimized, but it grabbed the Mac and forced a switch to its space anyway.

 

No other app I use does that... :(

 

Next I'll try setting TT to work in "all Spaces." Even though I really don't want to be seeing it everywhere, maybe it only grabs the Space and not actually the focus within a Space...?

I'm sorry I don't have a solution for this. I've placed my transfer folder on a portable hard drive which I connect to either my iMac or my MBP and then use the other computer while the transfer is going on. For some reason I'm not inclined to use the Mac that's doing the transfers and now you've given me a good reason.

Set TT to show on "all Spaces." When it finished (or started -- not sure which since I have a dozen stacked), it tossed me out of my Space (I was doing some astrophotography work in VMWare Fusion/Windows 7) and to the Space where TT was first launched -- even though TT was minimized and not visible... :(
