so i have a Direct TV HD DVR box with the recent soprano episodes on them i also just installed toast 8 and i noticed that there is an option for tivo transfers. this box has an ethernet port, usb, and some other ports which could potentially be used to transfer stuff. is it possible to transfer recorded programs from this box to my mac? i also have vista home premium installed. if its possible would vista be easier? sorry for such a vague description... thanks in advance.
