Conversion of Tivo files to iPod takes forever


kishore

Question

After downloading files for a 30 min show (about a 1GB) from my Tivo to my iMac, converting this to the iPod format took 4 to 5 hours. After the 2 hours it took to first transfer the file from the TiVo it looks like it takes me the better part of a day for each show. Is this a bug or a feature? My iMac is the older G4 iMac.

That amount of time sounds correct for your Mac. I suggest getting El Gato's Turbo.264 which doesn't depend on your Mac's processor speed for h.264 encoding. It comes with an application that converts to iPod or you can get Popcorn 3 which also uses the Turbo.264 as the encoder if you have one connected.
