Import TiVo recordings to iPhone 6S/ iPhone 6S Plus for Watching

Apple has confirmed a launch event on September 9 where the long-rumoured iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are expected to be released. The next iPhone(s) is tipped to feature an upgraded camera – with rumours pointing to a 12MP or 21MP rear-facing sensor, a new A9 processor, a better battery life and, potentially, support for wireless charging. Everyone’s keen to see what Apple will do with the iPhone 6S, surely, for movie lovers, it is exciting if they can watch stored movies and videos on iPhone 6S at any time and any place.

By any means, it is a great portable video player. So why not transfer your TiVo recordings to iPhone 6S/ iPhone 6S Plus? If you are keen on this idea, just follow the guide below, I would like to show you how to get TiVo shows ready for iPhone 6S/ iPhone 6S Plus.

Although there isn’t any detailed information related to iPhone 6S/6S Plus supported video/audio formats, according to the former iPhone series, it is very possible that iPhone 6S/6S Plus support the pre-existing video and formats.

iPhone 6S/6S Plus audio formats supported:

AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV.

iPhone 6S/6S Plus video formats supported:

H.264 video up to 1080p, 60 frames per second, High Profile level 4.2 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format.

In theory, common movies with .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file extension can well play on iPhone 6S/6S Plus based on the foregoing information. And Tivo is Uncompatible with the iPhone 6S/ iPhone 6S Plus. So convert Tivo to iPhone 6S/ iPhone 6S Plus is becoming necessary.

Step 1:Transfer TiVo recordings to Mac

Transferring TiVo recordings to Mac is not that easy and straight-forward as to PC. The TiVo Desktop software for the Mac (supplied by TiVo) does not allow user to transfer TiVo recordings to Mac, here I take some help from the freeware TiVoDecode Manager which gives you some of the features for taking content from your TiVo, moves it over to your computer, and automatically adds it to iTunes. Although it does have support for conversion, the quality of the result videos is poor and converting speed is so slow yet the output for apple devices are terrible.

Step 2: Launch the best TiVo Converter for Mac iTunes, Click on the “Option” button, switch to TiVo tab, and enter your Media Access Key. Click “OK” to confirm.

Step 3: Drag and drop the *.tivo files to the software. Add videos to iPhone 6S/6S Plus Video Converter for Mac.

Step Two. Choose target video format

Now you need to set a format for iPhone 6S/6S Plus Video Conversion- Click “Format” bar, follow “iPhone 6 H.264 Full HD 1080P(*.mp4)” as the best profile for iPhone 6S. Or choose “iPhone > iPhone 6 Plus H.264 Full Screen/Full HD 1080P(*.mp4)” as supported format for iPhone 6S Plus. The output videos could fit on your device perfectly.

Tips: With constantly updating preset profiles, it provides the latest devices for you which will be showed in the proper sub-category once released just like iPhone 6/6 Plus has already in Apple device category.

Step Three. Customize video specs (Optional)

Click “Settings” to open profiles settings window. Here you are able to customize video size, bitrate, frame rate, sample rate(Hz)…all the specs can be fixed manually.

A personal tip: the higher bitrate you choose, the better video quality will be; and you will get videos in larger size.

Step Four. Start Conversion

Go ahead and hit the “Convert”. It will pop up a conversion window with detailed prorecess. Wait for moments, you can click “Open output folder” to locate the converted video directly. Or you can check “shut down computer after conversion” and just leave it running. Then, transfer converted video to iPhone 6S/6S Plus. Have Fun!
