Handle TiVo Recordings to Apple TV 4

Summary: This guide shows you two ways to stream Tivo recordings to Apple TV 4 for playback. 


Stream TiVo to Apple TV 4 via AirPlay 

Step 1. Enable AirPlay through the iOS Control Center, select Apple TV, then toggle the mirroring button. Therefore, content from the TiVo box can be streamed to the device and on to any Apple TV-equipped television on the local Wi-Fi network. 

Step 2. Navigate to My Shows in the TV app to find the show you wish to stream, and select the option to watch the show on TV. 

Step 3. Recorded shows begin streaming quickly, while live shows take a few seconds longer as the TiVo has to begin recording the show and start streaming it to the iOS device. As with the previous support for streaming to iOS devices, several of the familiar TiVo functions are accessible on the iPhone player, including the 5-second rewind and 30-second skip buttons, as well as volume, show info, and options for zooming the picture and turning closed captioning on and off.

The AirPlay functionality is handy for quickly and easily streaming content to televisions anywhere in the house, with the app adjusting video quality depending on connection strength. TiVo recommends that its boxes be connected to the local network via a wired Ethernet or MoCA connection, but even over Wi-Fi we found video quality to be decent, if not spectacular. 

Unfortunately, TiVo's AirPlay functionality does not work outside of the local Wi-Fi network, preventing users from streaming content from their own TiVo box while visiting a friend's house, for example.

The copy protected Tivo recordings usually have a Media Access Key, you can find it by logging into your Tivo account at Tivo and clicking the "Media Access Key" link on the right side of the screen. Then hit the  button on the main interface, in the pop out window, enter the Media Access Key for the Tivo files, then press the "OK" button. 


Step 2. Import Tivo files. 

After entering the Media Access Key, you can successfully import Tivo files by clicking "File" > "Load Video/Audio" or "Load from Folder" to the program. Or add more than one video into this app at a time. 


Step 3. Choose output format and customize video. Pavtube includes a particular category for Apple TV, and just select one from this Apple TV list from “Format” menu for output. 


And you could freely adjust video and audio parameters in Profile settings to extend the best movie experience on Apple TV 4. Presets like video codec, size, bitrate, frame rate, etc can be adjusted.
