    I've transferred all my recordings from my Series 3 Tivo to my new Roamio. Everything went smoothly except for three files. When I select them from the Roamio on the S3 to transfer, I get this error message:

    There was an error

    Your request could not be processed. Please try again. (Message #86).

    The lower right hand part of the screen has the word "BUSY" in small print. After that, there's a screen that suggests the S3 may be offline. I know that's not the case because I can transfer other files with no problem. I was able to transfer these three files to my PC with kmttg, so they are accessible.

    Does anyone have any idea what this message might mean?

    Everything on your network that doesn't leave the house has a fixed IP address, right?

    Yes, everything in the house has a fixed IP address.

    Well, that pretty much exhausts my expertise in the matter.

    Any chance of an anti-copy bit getting in the way?

    Are both TiVos connecting to the router wirelessly?

    The non-copyable shows are clearly marked on the S3 and the recordings I have problems with are clearly copyable.

    The S3 is connected to the router and the Roamio is hooked up wireless.

    Just to be clear, I copied about 450 recording from the S3 to the Roamio without any problems. It's just those three recordings that refuse to transfer.

    Do they play back without any fuss on the S3?

    Since it's just 3, are you able to copy them to a PC with TiVo Desktop or pyTivo?

    Your not at capacity on your Roamio? You transferred 450 recordings.

    Yes, they play just fine on the S3.

    I copied them to my PC using kmttg and they copied just fine, so it doesn't appear to be a problem reading the disk.

    I have the Roamio Pro, so I have plenty of disk space.

    So you can copy them from the PC to the Roamio and not worry about this any more? :)

    Well, no. I tried pushing them to the Roamio from my PC using PyTivo and that failed. I don't know what's going on.

    Anyway, I'm pretty much done messing with this. I've permanently shut down my Series 3 and I have the recordings on my PC. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to get them on the Roamio.

    So something in the recording which oddly enough didn't affect the transfer to the PC?

    Odd.

    Try pulling them to the Roamio rather then pushing them.
