Part One: How to transfer TiVo shows to PC
1. On your PC, launch TiVo Desktop for PC (click to download), the freeware that transfers shows from your networked TiVo box to your computer.
2. Click "Pick Recordings to Transfer." A window showing your TiVo box's "Now Playing" or "My Shows" list appears.
3. Highlight any title in the list to see more information about the show. Check the box next to the title of the show (or shows) you want to transfer.
4. Click "Start Transfer." Transfer times vary, but may take as long as the show's duration to complete the transfer.
Part Two: Convert TiVo TV shows to Asus Transformer Prime supported video format
As you know, in order to play 2012 euro TiVo recordings on Asus Transformer Prime TF201, we have to convert TiVo videos to H.264/MPEG-4 MP4, WMV or other Transformer Prime supported videos along with some help from the third-party tool. If you are intersted in doing likewise, check out Pavtube's Video Converter(Get 20% Off Euro 2012 Coupon Code). It packs perfect support for TiVo recordings and I've found the quality of converted TiVo videos to be excellent on Asus Prime Tablet, and see no difference when compared to playing the TiVo recordings themselves.
(Notice: Enter the Media Access Key of your TiVo recordings into the "Open > TiVo" of the program to quickly import your TiVo recordings.)
Step 2. Choose output profile for Asus Transformer Prime. Here I recommend you "Android > ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Video(*.mp4)". This profile is specially designed for Asus Transformer Prime and supprots full-screen playback.

Both the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700's beautiful 1,920x1200-pixel screen and the Asus Transformer Prime's 1,280x800-pixel screen are great for watching movies. But just like Android os tablets, the Asus gadgets have no BD and DVD drive. So if you have some Blu-ray and DVD movie collections and want to watch the Blu-ray/DVD movies on Asus Transformer Prime or Infinity TF700, you'll need to convert the Blu-ray/DVD to Asus Transformer supported video format(MP4 with H.264 video codec is highly recommended) first.
The tutorial is about how to rip Blu-ray DVDs to Asus Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700 highly compatible videos format so that you can play Blu-ray and DVD movies on your Prime/Infinity TF700 with ease.
To get the work done, a BD Ripping software is needed. If you're looking for ease-to-use, check out Pavtube's Blu-ray Ripper(Currently 40% Off during Pavtube's Xmas Big Coupons). Basically, the software can help you encode Blu-ray/DVD also ISO/IFO to Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700 highly supported MP4 video files with high output video quality and fast ripping speed. Besides, you are allowed to edit the Blu-ray/DVD movies by trimming, cropping, adjusting video effects, etc. to get the very wanted part and effects as you like. Moreover, this Blu-ray converter can also help you convert Blu-ray/DVD to all other popular video formats like AVI, MOV, MKV, WMV, FLV, MPG, etc. for playing and sharing on iPhone, iPad, Archos, Zen, Blackberry, YouTube, Facebook, etc. bypassing the BD/DVD copy protection.
The equivalent Mac version is Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper Mac, which can rip and convert Blu-ray/DVD movies to Asus VivoTab on Mac OS X(Include Lion and Mountain Lion). Just download it and follow the steps below to download and put Blu-ray/DVD movies onto Asus Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700 for smoothly playing.
How to Convert and Transfer Blu-ray/DVD movies to Asus Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700
The quick start guide below uses Blu-ray Ripper Windows(Windows 8 included) screenshots. The way to rip Blu-ray/DVD movies to Prime/Infinity TF700 on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system. A BD drive is needed for ripping Blu-ray discs.
Step 2: Select the suitable output video format. Click "Format" bar, you can easily find the optimized videos for the Prime TF201 under "ASUS > ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Video(*.mp4)" and for Infinity TF700 under "ASUS > ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity 700 Full HD Video(*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on VivoTab RT perfectly and supplies full-screen playback.
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. For watching videos on the Asus Transformer tablets, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right. I found the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3: When everything is OK, just press "Convert" button to start to rip Blu-ray/DVD to Asus Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700 mp4 videos.
Bingo! After the conversion, just transfer the converted video files to your VivoTab. In this way, you can watch Blu-ray DVD on Asus Transformer Prime/Infinity TF700 and enjoy the movies!
If your movie isn't already in one of the supported formats or it's still on a DVD or a Blu-ray, you can get the 20% OFF Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate(or the [b]20% OFF iMedia Converter Mac[/b])which can help you rip Blu-ray/DVD, and convert various formats of 720p/1080p HD videos in MKV, AVI, TiVo, VOB, MPG, MTS, etc. to your Asus Transformer Prime TF201, Transformer Pad TF300, Infinity TF700, Asus VivoTab RT, Asus Transformer TF101 and other Android os tablets/phones for smoothly playing.
