    I just received my Directv Tivo receiver. I would like to add this receiver to my Tivo Desktop and it is asking me to enter the TSN (Tivo Service Number) in order to add it. How do I get this number? Tivo Desktop allows transfer of Tivo recorded programs between Tivo recorders. When I go into the Desktop it shows a new Tivo (identified by DVR-A403), but it is not the TSN number that I need. So, it is recognizing that there is a recorder there but I cannot transfer anything from that number when I highlight it. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!!!!:)

    You can't do that. The DirecTV THR22 does not participate in TiVo Desktop or any other kind of program sharing.

    Just one of the many great TiVo retail features this box does NOT support. :).

    The older DirecTiVo's where hackable to turn the home media features on and their was a utility tytool that facilitated downloads. You might give tytool a try

    Not for the THR22.

    Once again, there's a need to remind users that it is not a 'real' TiVo. It's a D* receiver with TiVo software!

    You will not get all the features that are available to standalone TiVo owners for this reason.

    If there is a problem then D* throws it over to the fence to Tivo, and visa versa. That is why you should stay away from the D* Tivo boxes.
