I have a Retina display new iPad. I have a TiVo Premiere DVR, which records HD programming. Naturally, my geeky self got to thinking: "Wouldn't it be cool to transfer my favorite shows from the TiVo to the iPad 3?" Yes, it would be cool. But the TiVo-sanctioned software I used for the job proved to be expensive, time consuming to use, and ultimately didn't deliver the quality I had hoped for. TiVo Desktop will only convert to 640x480 (or less). I'm not sure if this was done to prevent piracy or because it's quicker than converting to HD. I've converted using Video Redo and it takes forever….
