TiVoDecode Manager (TDM) is a free Applescript Studio interface (i.e. \"wrapper\") for the tivodecode program that automates the process of downloading of standalone TiVo Series 2 files to your computer and decoding into MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 files. It is not for Series 1 (ever), Series 3, or DirecTiVos (unhacked or hacked).
The first thing is to click the \"Stop\" button in \"System Preferences\" > \"TiVo Desktop\". Run the Terminal (located in /Applications/Utilities/) and input: defaults write com.tivo.desktop FileVideo -dict-add VideoUIEnabled -bool true 1e1e36bf2d
