    Apple Convert2Tivo (video to TY conversion) application support

    This is a placeholder for support of a Mac application I wrote. Granted I'm not likely to respond to support requests, but maybe someone else will.

    Convert2TiVo is application droplet. Drop any video onto the application and it will be converted into TiVo Series 1 TY format.

    Features:
    Will pad top and bottom with horizontal bars to fit into 640x480 aspect without cropping/stretching.
    Uses ffmpeg (no modifications) so can be updated, easily, to support new codecs as ffmpeg releases new versions.
    See readme.txt in the bundle for information about the source.

    Bugs:
    No Progress Feedback.
    No way to cancel (have to quit app then force quit ffmpeg)

    Proposed Features:
    Combine videos.

    You can download the latest version here:

    I have been out of the TiVo development loop that I have no idea if there is already a simple tool that does this.

    Universal mplex

    I should probably point out that my tool includes a PowerPC Mac mplex tool that supports TY format.

    Just use "-f 10" to select TY, I'd suggest also using "-r 3000".

    My Mistake, I never got around to compiling a Universal mplex, it is PowerPC. However, the mplex is the quickest part, so it's not a big deal that's it running in an emulator.
