Convert Tivo files to iPad Pro for watching

Let’s say you’ve recorded many TV shows with TiVo and want to transfer them to your iPad Pro for playback. No matter where you are, whenever it is, just take out the iPad Pro from your handbag and enjoy your favorite TV programs or football matches freely! Nice idea, isn’t it? This article discusses an easy way to watch Tivo files on iPad Pro by converting the TiVo files to iPad Pro supported video format.

There are many kinds of video converter software on market, yet few do convert TiVo files because all TiVo files are DRM protected. One highly recommended program is iFastime Video Converter Ultimate for Mac (Windows), which will remove DRM automatically while converting TiVo files to iPad Pro supported video format with fast speed and excellent output quality. Besides, it also can convert Tivo files to various popular Apple devices like iPhone 6siPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, Apple TV 4, and more.

Editor’s Note: I use iFastime Video Converter Ultimate for Mac for coverting TiVo videos for my iPad Pro. It works very well and I haven’t really had any problems. Conversion speed seems fine and the videos look good on the iPad Pro. I saw iFastime mentioned in the TiVo forums as a good way to convert for the iPad so I decided to try it. It’s much better than TiVo’s converter. TiVo’s converters for mobile devices are terrible.
