Converting Tivo With 1080P Hd

Question

I am using Roxio Toast 11 with Tivo Transfer.

 

The Tivo Transfer Application transfers my recordings to my computer fine no problem and transfers them in there native resolution/audio. (i.e. 1920x1080 and 5.1 audio for most shows)

 

However, I am trying to using TOAST Video Converter to convert the .tivo file, which is completely possible and it integrates the tivo recordings in the Video Area.

The problem is it will only let it output max of 640x480. When I click a format that is above 480, it sends me a message that tivo only allows for output of up to 480.

I understand the reasoning on this, and heck the same reason why it probably only lets you down mix to stereo, so you don't just go an burn them to a disc or something.

But I'm trying to send it over to my iPad, and it now supports 1080p movies. So if I want to watch it on the go, I have to downgrade the quality. I can't even just do 720p or something.

 

There has to be a workaround for this. I tried looking for other video converters, but there is no guarantees about quality.

 

I put this in the TIVO TRANSFER SubForum also.

I'm sorry, but I don't have an answer for you. I just want to know the answer also and don't see where I can subscribe to this thread to receive other posts. Hopefully we will get an answer soon.

Check the response I gave to this in the TiVo for Mac forum.

bradpaulp - The resolution output you are experiencing when converting your video file to Tivo was set as a limitation by Tivo not by Toast. This limit is set for all video types converted to the Tivo profile. Have you given consideration to convert the TIvo 1920x1080 video file directly to the iPad 1080p profile in Toast 11.0.6? Doing so would allow the full resolution during playback on your iPad3. If you have an earlier version of the iPad then toast offers a 720p profile which is quite an improvement over the 480p resolution set by Tivo.
