View Full Version : TiVo on a mac, What's the go?

Is it possible to have only mac computers at home and also own a TiVo without any problems, i've only seen PC's used with TiVo's so far.

Any responses appreciated :)

Thanks from

I'm a PC user, but as far as I understand there's no problems at all.
All of the TiVo command line stuff is done via telnet and TiVoweb runs on any browser.

I run on macs and have no problems.

Telnet (via Terminal app), ftp (via Transmit), Tivoweb (Via Safari Browser), .ty extraction (via tystudio & X11 by Apple) and .ty to mpeg/avi conversion (via ffmpegX) all seem to work fine.

I also run my tivo wirelessly via an airport express network, so my wireless network is all Apple too.

As far as I can tell no real differences between Mac/PC for the stuff I'm doing.

And I love the overall mac experience.

Go for it!
