Because free space was running low, some months ago I transferred (using TiVo's built-in Multi Room Viewing function) some episodes of a series from DVR-A to DVR-B (deleting them from A). I have since used iTiVo to download all the episodes from both DVR-A and DVR-B with the showname.txt metadata file option selected. For the episodes downloaded from DVR-B, the showname.txt files have only startTime and stopTime, and these appear to be the time of the transfer from DVR-A to DVR-B. The episode title and synopsis are there on DVR-B -- I can see them in the Now Playing program info, but they did not get inserted into the metadata files. Perhaps after the transfer from DVR-A, these data are in a form that iTiVo does not recognize. (Or it may be that transferring from a TCD540040 to an older model, a TCD24080, is the problem. Maybe a TCD24080 does not properly recognize all the metadata from a TCD540040. (That does not explain why the episode title and synopsis, which the older TCD24080 obviously does understand, didn't get put into the files.) I know that some metadata are lost when transferring from one DVR to another (that's been my experience). But I'd think that episode title and synopsis should still be available to iTiVo. Would anyone who has multiple DVRs care to confirm this problem? use iTiVo to download a show with the optional showname.txt metadata file. Transfer that same show to another DVR and repeat the download. Rename the first downloaded files or download the second to a different directory so the first won't be overwritten by the second. Compare showname.txt files. I'd be interested in your results (include DVR models numbers).
