I found a couple of old posts but nothing that addresses this problem on a TiVo Premiere. I have two premier's and just realized back over a year ago when I setup the first unit that I'd used a 10/100MB USB ethernet adapter because I was having trouble connecting directly via the ethernet port on the tivo. I'd forgotten all about that work around until I started trouble shooting my inability to stream shows successfully between my two premiere units which I knew were both hard wired. I finally realized the stress point is that usb adapter but after trying all night I never could get the ethernet port to work. The problem is I upgraded the drive in this unit just after purchasing it and we have a couple hundred hours of tv stored on it so I really hate to exchange it and lose both the shows as well as the expanded harddrive. My second, newer premiere doesn't have the expanded drive or the ethernet port issue. Is there a USB adapter that might be faster and give me a workaround for this issue. The USB ethernet adapter appears to perform about the same as the USB wireless G tivo adapter and now that my wife liked HDTV she's complaining that the transfer is too slow and streaming is impossible. Since the wirelss N adapter utilzes the ethernet port I can't use it either I'm afraid. Can I swap the bigger drive out and put it back in the new unit if I swap them out? I used to know a little about all of this but it's been over a year since I did my upgrade and that stretched my capabilities even then but I've lost that knowledge at this point. Someone please help. I'm going to try and contact TiVo tomorow but I'd rather not go that route if theres a fix I can try or another USB adapter that might work better.
