Error Tranferring Large File From Tivo



I have a single recording ona series 2 TiVo that is 12 hours long (it is a series of panel discussions). The file is on the order of 15 GB but only a bit more than 10 GB will transfer, and the Toast Viewer chokes on it, i.e. the video is not generally viwable beyond an hour or so into the program.


I had planned to use the edit feature in Toast to break the file down into a series of separate panels and burn a series of DVD-R archives.


The open source TiVo Decoder droplet converts to MPEG2 stripped of its TiVo-ness (encrypted? a different header structure? rearraged atoms?) , but it is in a form that appears to only be viewable in VLC media player.


I though Toast was going to be the solution for the task at hand. Looks like I may have to record to DVD-R recorder on the fly, which is tricky.


All roads seem to lead to tedium. At least Toast gives me the option NOT to re-encode, if only I can get TiVo transfer to work on long files.


Any advice or work arounds what appears to be a limitation of TiVo Transfer? Can I FTP to my TiVo?
