Can I transfer TIVO downloads to my PC?

I've recorded quite a few programmes on my TIVO box that I'd like to keep.  Is there anyway of transferring them to my computer?

Simple Answer. No.

 

Not so simple answer. With a capture card maybe

Hello Ali888, 

 

The simple answer is no - the recordings are encrypted due to licencing reasons as as such you will not be able to transfer recordings from your TiVo to another device - sorry. 

 

Cheers
