Is It Actually Possible To Record A Saved Tivo Program?

Question

I purchased Toast 9 just to record a single program from a TiVo. It transfered correctly, but

four attempts to burn it to a disk always result in Toast segfaulting somewhere during the

(very very slow--over an hour for a 2 hour show) encoding process. Roxio's advice so far is

"trash all your preferences."

 

Of course, that changes nothing at all and it still dies. Same result with 9 and the update (9.0.2).

 

I'm running on a 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo iMac with 10.5.4.

 

There doesn't seem to be any optional dinking around to try with the TiVo recording--the only

thing you can do is press the big "toast it" button or view it. Viewing appears to work.

 

I scanned this entire forum and there seem to be a lot of people happily using their TiVos

and Toast 9. Maybe I'm cursed.

I am a newbie experiencing the same problem with Toast 9.02 and a 2 GHz MacBook Pro.

 

30-minute programs take 35+ minutes to encode and burn. Longer programs simply will not encode -- Toast hangs with no progress on encoding.

 

I have seen a few posts mentioning slow encoding but this is ridiculous. I recently submitted a Help ticket and hope to receive a solution.

 

Would a downgrade to Toast 8 be a good fix? I am ready to request a refund on Toast 9 -- it simply does not work! Any feedback is appreciated!

Though it did take me forever to get the DVD encoded I was able to burn a TiVo program I recorded years ago onto a DVD.

 

My only problem is that I didn't want to burn the entire program I just wanted the 7 minute portion I had edited and saved, but was never able to burn just that portion.

 

Good luck.
