Q: “I have recorded some TV shows by TiVo and would like to play them on DVD player with my families. Is there any positive ways to transfer TiVo Recordings to DVD player? Thanks in advance!”
TiVo is a good digital video recorder that provides a range of features when the TiVo DVR is connected to a home network, including film and television show downloads, advanced search, personal photo viewing, music offerings, and online scheduling. Following DRM, the recorded TiVo videos are encrypted and saved as .TiVo files. That why some of you can’t play TiVo recording on your DVD player directly. Then how to solve? An easy solution is to remove copy protection from TiVo and convert TiVo recodrings to MPEG-2/VOB etc formats for playing DVD player.
To convert TiVo Recording for DVD player, you can take advantage of a TiVo to DVD video converter. After several testing, I found Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate/ (iMedia Converter for Mac) has done a good job. With it, you can effortlessly bypass all the protection from TiVo recordings and convert TiVo recordings to DVD player compatible i.g. MPEG-2/VOB formats without losing its original quality.
Besides, you can also convert TiVo videos to other popular formats such as: WMV, MOV, AVI, 3GP, WebM, H.265/HEVC, etc for playing on more portable devices and media players as you like. With the built-in editor, you can also do some editing work like: trim the video length, crop black bar, rotate video effects, adjust video/audio codec, add personal watermark, etc.
