I had a Series 2 that failed, but before it did I downloaded a bunch of shows off of it using Tivo Desktop. I can watch any of those programs. My sister recently gave me her 40 G Tivo with lifetime subscription and now I am trying to figure out how to download programs from that. The Tivo Desktop sees it but I get the following message: There was an error while attempting to retrieve data form the selected DVR. The TiVo DVRs Media Access Key does not match the key in the TiVo Desktop. To authenticate this DVR for transfers over your home network, youll need the Media Access Key to your account. Please choose Set Media Access Key from the file menu. When I go to change the MAK it tells me I will loose access to all of the programs that I downloaded from the other Tivo. Id like to keep access to those and I might even get the broken Tivo fixed. How do I do that and still download programs from the inherited Tivo?
