I could get a DVD recorder:

and then rip the DVD content with Handbrake to get it on my mac...

But is there a direct way to get existing TiVo content onto my intel Mac mini? I don't know how I'd connect the mac to the TiVo anyway...

I bopped through the Elgato site... would EyeTV be the best way?

(I see that these are still PPC apps, but the site says they run fine with Rosetta...Elgato claims the UB apps will be coming soon...)

Thanks!

Mid 06 looks like you will be able to use Tivo-To-Go with your mac and pull the videos down direct.

Looks good to me Smile

I have the Elgato EyeTV 200 and a Tivo. You can run the s-video and rca audio output from the Tivo to the input of the EyeTV. I've done this in the past and it works great.

Why not hack the Tivo to enable networking, extract the video using mfs_ftp and then burn to DVD?
