Also, I wonder why TiVo don't include this conversion option in their Desktop. After all, Freeview HD is free-to-air, so there is no copyright breach...

wellygary: Just because you are allowed to view it, doesn't mean you are given the rights to copy/transcode/reencode the programme.
Sure, they ain't gonna bust ya door down and raid you over it, but I think you will find that legally the copyright on Freeview HD will not extend to allowing you to record and move the file around, hence the lack of useable network ports on Myfreeview HD boxes.
rscole86: It is legal, and that is what you have done, made your recording. What is against TiVos terms of service, is to watch it on another device that is not supported.
rscole86: But if you were to ignore the restrictions that have been put in place for legal reasons, then you could try using VLC to transcode it into a more friendly format.
Kookoo: It worked like a charm.
bodysoda: I believe Roxio toast 10 Platium allows you to copy legally .tivo files to the DVD.

rscole86: Maybe this pdf will hlelp you decide.
