Convert FIFA World Cup Games TiVo to MP4/MPEG for NAS Sharing

Looking for a quick way to convert 2014 World Cup Tivo video files? Let's learn how to backup them with MP4/MPEG format on you NAS device for watching.

As 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup is sneaking in, and this grand 2014 World Cup will last roughly 1 month and we football lovers will spend a passionate summer thanks to the splendid football matches it brings. Even though most of us could not head to the scene, we can stay in front of the HD TV, and watch the favorite teams to goal. We can use the sports collections of TiVo to get the events and web content, and even record with TiVo Premiere.

If you plan to record the first half of the game between Brazil and croatia for the World Cup, you may like to put the first half to the Network Attached Storage (NAS) so as to continue recording the second half. How to deal with it?


Through a google search on the internet, I find Pavtube Tivo Video Converter Ultimate. I used 30 day trial option to test out the software to make sure it worked – other software packages did not have this trial feature and Pavtube was the first that I managed to get working so I went with them. I tried out other software product but found Pavtube is the easiest to work with to finish Tivo to NAS conversion. It really does bulk conversions (whole sub-directories at a time), and has lots of different output formats (almost too many to choose from without know what was what). The Mac version is iMedia Converter for Mac.

Now I'm able to stream FIFA World Cup Tivo files to all my NAS devices for viewing. It is great!
