    Two questions: 1) is there a way to display the transfer speed in TiVo Desktop (transfer between TiVo Series 3 and Computer). Kmttg offers this function. 2) is the transfer speed faster between TiVo and computer using the premiere series than series 3? I know transfers are limited by the connection speed. I am using WD livewire which offers speeds of over 100 Mbits/sec. Thanks

    Transfers are limited by the CPU transcoding the videos, that's why its slower. Premiere is faster, faster CPU.

    Video of transfer speeds.

    Transfers are limited by the Tivo. Your average home network should be much faster than what a Tivo uses.

    The Premiere is faster than a Series 3 and the Series 3 is faster than the Tivo HD.

    You can view network info on the Tivo.

    Go to Messages & Settings -> Settings -> Phone & Network -> View Network Diagnostics -> Transfer history.

    Pick a category. I believe transfers to a computer is option 2. The numbers only reflect the most recent transfer the Tivo has made for each category.
