Burning DVD's on Toast from TiVo Transfer

Pete B.


I can't consistently burn TiVo transferred movies to a blank DVD, even when they are less than 4.6 GB in size according to the TiVo Transfer column marked "Size." The movies aren't recorded in HD. I get the error message that says I can't burn the movie because my blank DVD disc doesn't have enough room. I notice that the size of the movie when Toast is preparing to burn it is larger than the size when it was listed on the TiVo Transfer screen. I seem to remember being able to successfully burn movies of equal or greater duration and size in a previous version of TiVo transfer. I am using TiVo Transfer Version 2.0. I have a Macbook Pro, running Mac OS X Version 10.6.2. My version of Toast 10 Titanium is 10.0.5. Anyone help here?

I trashed the file you suggested...but no help with the problem of space available on the blank DVD.


I now notice that when I press "Play" when I've got a movie that I transferred (into TiVo Transfer), and Toast's Player comes up, that the movie plays as a series of flashing-moving squares (like I sometimes see on my HD TV when my cable connection is disrupted). I can watch the same movie on my TV successfully from it's storage place on my TiVo.


Any idea what's going on?

1. Playback issue could be related to connectivity issues. Try setting connections - Tivo, Router, system etc.

2. Try saving the Video as a disc image instead of burning to a DVD and then try burning the saved disc image file to a DVD.


BTW are you able to post the details on size of source vs target DVD media. What does the Toast disc indicator on the bottom show?
