Hd Conversion For Tivo?

Question

I have some 1080i and 720p video from my Tivo that I'd like to convert on my Mac but keep in HD. When I select the Video Files conversion option, I loose the ability to convert in HD. My only option is standard def conversion. This seems to be a change from Toast 9 that had some HD conversion options with dealing with Tivo. How can I retain HD resolutions?

You should be able to keep your HD quality by converting to the H.264 or the Quicktime option located under the Convert tab. Drag your files to the video files format under Convert and then click the red button to select the quicktime or H.264 video format. I hope I'm understanding you correctly. If you are speaking of creating an HD Video disc or disc image then yes the HD option is now removed from toast 10 since the HD format is considered dead. Toast 10 will now convert HD Video projects created in Toast 9 to Blu-ray video projects when added to the Blu-ray format.

When I try doing that, the quality of the video that comes out is actually worse than the quality when picking AppleTV with it's best setting.

 

The problem is that the resulting video is still 640x480 while the original videos are in true high def at 1920x1080. The resulting decode looks VERY good in a lot of still shots but when people move they get very blurry and the screen quality is bad.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks
