    I downloaded it on the last day. Since I never got around to applying that patch and you needed to be on 2.8.3 to apply the patch.(although I probably downloaded it a while ago but I have no idea where I put it)

    I don't use my TiVo desktop very much any more. But my girlfriend asked for some shows this week so I need to burn them to disc. My standalone burner is in the bedroom with one of my Minis. But since I don't have the breakout cables for the Mini yet, I need to burn the content on the TiVo Desktop machine. So I needed to be able to transfer it with the TiVo Desktop software.

    I guess I was lucky, in that I was able to download a copy yesterday, a day after the deadline. An extra copy if I ever need to reinstall it. I already have it installed and working on Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro.

    Free Mac version is still up (complete with the embarrassing text identifying Snow Leopard as the most recent OS X).

    Depending on your hardware... Snow leopard is the latest version of OSX. :)

    Interesting, it's not listed on the main TiVo page, but if you go via the link on the first page, you can still download the free version.

    Since someone here came up with a simple way to do what the patch does (only he did it first), you can fix the problem even if you're still running 2.8.2 (which is all that 2.8.3 is, except for some stuff that lets it work with the "new" DirecTiVo).

    So how do you download the software if you already paid for Plus but need to reinstall on. Different machine? Looks like the only option now is to add to cart. Do they send you a link via email when you buy now?

    I'm not sure, but the setup file is still exactly where it used to be, only the link to it was removed. I'm not sure if that was done on purpose or not, but I suppose support can email the link to someone who asks for it.

    Thanks for that. I did not have an archive version. I do now (plus the patch).
