Rip and Transfer DVD movies to TiVo from PC/Mac

TiVo can be used for watching home movies, when the TiVo DVR is connected to a home network. Say you have some home movie on DVDs, but you want to watch DVD collection via TiVo instead of using the physical discs. Then you can "rip" these DVDs—or turn it into a movie file which is supported by Tivo on your computer—to put it for Tivo playback with ease.

To convert DVD to TiVo more compatible video format like MPEG-2, here Dimo Video Converter Ultimate is recommended to fulfill the task. The program is an all-in-one video converter tool that lets you effortlessly rip Blu-ray, DVD and convert your video and audio files like AVI, VOB, WMV, FLV, MP4, MP3, etc. to Tivo format at ultra-fast speed without any quality loss. 

Besides, it can be used as TiVo media server so that you can transfer your TiVo recordings to your portable devices for enjoyment anywhere anytime, or a ISO maker to create ISO from Tivo shows. If you want to watch DVD files on TiVo from Mac, you can turn to Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac (MacOS Sierra supported). Download the program and learn the tutorial.

Part I. Convert DVD to TiVo friendly format

Step 1: Add DVD files > Insert the DVD disc to the DVD-ROM and click the "Add DVD" button to have movies uploaded to the program. Here you can also import Blu-ray discs, Blu-ray/DVD folders and video files to convert. 

Step 2: Choose TiVo device friendly format > Hit the drop-down list of "Select Format" to choose "Format -> Video -> MPEG-2 Video" as the best format.

Tip: Set advanced settings (Optional)

By clicking the Settings icon, you can adjust video and audio parameters like codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, etc., in that way, you can take charge of the size and quality of the output files. In principle, the larger input values, the better output quality, but the corresponding larger file size.

Step 3: Start converting DVD for TiVo > As soon as all the above settings are completed, you can press "Start" button to start DVD to MPEG-2 conversion. After conversion is done, simply click "Open" button to find generated output videos and then transfer it from your PC to TiVo for playback flawlessly.

Part II. How to transfer home videos from PC to my TiVo?

Preparation: Purchase the Home Networking Package, and download and install the TiVo Desktop software (which comes as part of the Home Networking Package). 

As of fall 2015, TiVo Desktop is no longer available for purchase. However, TiVo will continue to support your existing Desktop installation. If you still have your product key, you can use the installation instructions to use Desktop.

1. On your PC, open My Documents > My TiVo Recordings.

NOTE: You can change the location of this folder under File > Preferences.

2. Copy the home videos you wish to transfer to your TiVo into the My TiVo Recordings folder.

3. These will now display in your TiVo Desktop’s Now Playing List.

4. On your TiVo, navigate to TiVo Central > Now Playing List.

5. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select your "Now Playing on [YOUR PC]".

6. Select the video you wish to transfer and follow the screen prompts to begin the transfer.

7. While the video is transferring, a blue light will be lit on your TiVo media device.

8. Once the blue light turns off, the video has finished transferring. You can find the transferred video in your TiVo Now Playing List.

NOTE: Video can be played whilst transferring but network speed limitations may cause video to pause. Your TiVo media device will only transfer one file at a time; additional files will be queued for transfer later.

After that, the ripped DVD videos will be transferred to TiVo automatically. Enjoy.
