    When attempting to Transfer files from XL4 to S3OLED (model 648.)

    The blue light is on, but file does not show up in now playing list, and does not transfer.
    Any subsequent file transfer requests do not transfer either.
    Tivo left to run with blue light on for over 12 hrs.

    The blue light stays on without any file transfer until tivo is rebooted.
    All other TiVo functions are operational.

    Subsequent file transfer attempts, after tivo is rebooted, may or may not take place.

    Do the hung transfers show up in the ToDo list, including the "View Recording History" ?

    If so, have you tried canceling the transfer there (which would at least stop the blocking of subsequent transfers)?

    Some problem with the TiVo mind server seems a likely cause.

    Yes
    Did not check but will next time it happens.
    Yes, but cancel transfers showing on to do list does not "unblock" the next transfer or turn off the blue light.

    TiVo mind server??? what is that?

    The server at mind.tivo.com gets involved when you request VOD to your TiVo and I'm guessing it also is involved in transfers between TiVo's. It's also involved when you push videos from pyTivo to a tivo. I've seen similar blue light hangups when pushing from pyTivo and something goes wrong.

    Understood.

    Soft rebooting the XL4 fixed the problem... for now.
