    This seems to have started only recently. In My Shows on my Elite it does not show see my computer unless I reboot the tivo, then it's there. Everything is "hardwired" via ethernet cables to a router.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    What SW are you running on your PC? If it is Tivo Desktop you might consider the free pyTivo.

    I use tivo desktop and it has always worked up until recently. I'm more interested in getting it to work properly rather than change the sw, but thanks. Anyway, that shouldn't matter. The tivo should see the computer regardless of any software.

    This may be related. I could not see my Mac from the TiVo and I changed the Mac name in TiVo Desktop system preference. The Mac then showed up on the TiVos. I agree, this should just work, sometimes a reboot of computer, sometimes a router reboot.
