How do I setup MyTV ToGo with my Apple Video iPod

Recommended Posts

1. Install Apple iTunes software and make sure that iTunes can find your iPod. Verify that you can sync music to your iPod with iTunes.


2. Install MyTV ToGo.


3. Run MyTV ToGo either as a Media Center Add-in (Media Center | More Programs | MyTV ToGo) OR as a Windows XP stand-alone program (Start | All Programs | MyTV ToGo)


4. The first time you run MyTV ToGo you will be taken to the Settings screen. From "Select Video conversion type" select "iPod with video playback"




5. From "Select video conversion quality" select either Compatible, Good, Better, or Best depending on the quality (and resulting size) of the video file that you would like. Compatible will create the smallest video file with the lowest quality while Best will create the largest video file with the highest quality. The Good setting is a balance between file size and video quality. You can return to the Settings screen anytime to update this setting based on your current needs.


6. From "Select where to copy converted files" select "To portable device" if you want to copy your TV shows directly to your mobile device using Apple iTunes software.


7. Press the Save button to return to the main MyTV ToGo screen.




8. If everything is setup correctly then there should be a picture of an iPod on the lower left side of the screen and you should see the total free space on the Apple iPod. If you don't see this information then please see step 1 and setup iTunes software.

9. Select one or more TV shows from the list box and press the "Convert and Copy" button. Your TV Show will be converted and copied directly to iTunes.


10. Once the conversion and copy is complete then you can find your TV show in your iTunes library. Simply open iTunes and "update" your iPod. Your TV show can be found on your iPod under Videos | Movies.
