    I have Tivo Desktop Plus and routed my videos to play from my PC to my videos and it's worked well. Today I added some new videos to the folder on the PC but they are not showing up on the Tivo.

    I have restarted the Tivo by power cycling it & restarted Tivo Desktop Plus but I still am missing the files on the Tivo in my computer folder, any thoughts?

    Thank you,

    This is why I dumped Tivo Desktop and started using pytivo instead. The best advice I can offer is to switch to pytivo. It works perfect all the time.

    Are the files ompatible types? TiVo Desktop Plus still only supports certain video types. If the videos are not compatible it will simply ignore them. pyTiVo can be a bit of a pain to install but it supports a LOT more formats, and once it's setup you can pretty much forget about it so it's worth the effort.

    They should show up right away. It does in my setup with TiVo Desktop. But my videos are also recorded from TiVos and just transferred to the TiVo Desktop PC. I would have thought if there was an issue a reboot would have solved it.

    They are working now. I forced a connection and they are showing up now.
