The thing is it works perfectly if i manually open up popcorn drag the TiVo file on to it and tell it to export for iPod. The result of this action puts a copy in iTunes with the show name, episode, and description of the episode. Checking the box in TivoTransfer to automatically encode in popcorn yields the the show exported to itunes with only the actual file name. My problem is that this didn't work well before leopard was released and they choose to take the software out of beta before this issue was resolved. This makes me think that they think everything is fixed when clearly it is not. If they had simply released an update to the beta and said that they are working on a metadata fix I would have been fine with that. But from my experience once a final software update is released the next one is usually months away.
I understand they have a lot of fixing to do and I sympathize with them but this is not free software people pay for it so fixes for bugs is not something Roxio is doing as a favor, it is something that is necessary for the software to live up to the cost paid for it. My gripe is that I explained this problem exactly before the final version was out and it was still not resolved. I don't see how this could be all that difficult to fix considering it works perfectly when the Tivo file export is user initiated.
