Convert Tivo files to MPEG-2 for WD TV Live Streaming Media Player

Question 1: "Purchased WD TV Live and hooked it to my Tivo Premiere 4XL via a HDMI cable. When I power up the WD TV Live my Tivo box doesn´t see it. Help!"

Question 2: "I have just purchased a WD TV Live Streaming Media Player to use in my motorhome since I do not have internet access for streaming purposes."

Have you met the similar issues from above? In fact, it is correct that the WD TV Live streaming media player has no ability of playing the Tivo files well. As professional digital video recorder, Tivo has offered us marvelous videos, TV shows, and movies. What a pity is that the Tivo files cannot usually be accepted by media players or transferred to portable devices. For example, could you directly play your Tivo files on WD TV Live streaming media player, VLC, Roku 3, Apple TV 3, PS3, Windows Media Player as well as Tablets and Smartphones? Obviously not!


Someone there may say the "Tivo Transfer" could work Tivo files well for a playback on WD TV live. However, it cannot customize my video size and edit videos with good effects what I want, so is there any other better Tivo converters? Of course! Pavtube Tivo Video Converter (Get Mac version with 50% off on 2015 Easter Sales) is a professional Tivo converter for nicely transcoding.
