“I have a lot of DVD movies I would like to watch on the tv through tivo. Obviously DVDs (ISO,IFO, VOB, etc.,) are not recognized by the tivo desktop or other software. I have been searching for an official tivo program and cannot find one to convert them. Anyone got any programs they use?

So the easysolution is to convert DVD to one of TiVo supported video formats, such as MPEG-2. In this case, a professional DVD Video file conversion tool becomes a must, here I recommend Brorsoft DVD Ripper. It’s one of the most frequently used DVD ripping tool to convert DVD movies to MPEG(MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4) in an amazing way. Easy-to-use interface, fast ripping speed and high output video quality make it outstanding among all the DVD rippers. Besides ripping DVD movies to MPEG, it can also help your convert DVD to all other popular video formats like MKV, WMV, FLV, MOV, MP4 AVI, etc. If you’re using a Mac, simply turn to DVD Ripper for Mac to rip DVD movies to MPEG on Mac OS X (macOS Sierra).

If you not only wanna convert DVD videos, but also intend to convert Blu-ray or HD Videos such as MKV, MP4, MOV, M4V, AVI movies, the all-in-one tool, Brorsoft’s Video Converter Ultimate (or iMedia Converter for Mac) will be your first and best choice.

Step 2: Hit the drop-down list of “Format” to choose “Common Video -> MPEG-2 Video(*.mpg) as the best format.

Tip: Set advanced settings (Optional)
By clicking the Settings icon, you can adjust video and audio parameters like codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, etc., in that way, you can take charge of the size and quality of the output files. In principle, the larger input values, the better output quality, but the corresponding larger file size.

After conversion is done, simply click “Completed” to back to main interface, and click “Open” button to find generated output videos and then transfer it from your PC to Tivo flawlessly.
