    After the latest upgrade, I don't see my TiVo desktop on my Now Playing list anymore. The Desktop shows up on my TiVo Series 3, and the TivoToGo status in System Information is 'a,a,a'. After rebooting all around, the TiVo desktop still doesn't show up. (And this even after I transfer programs from the Premiere to TiVo Desktop).

    Any thoughts?

    FWIW, the TiVo desktop is on Windows 8, 64-bit and is the current version.

    It should not be in your To Do List, it should be on your Play List.

    Doh. My mis-type. I'll edit original to show missing from NowPlaying (as it is).

    I had the same problem.

    First go to post #6 in this thread:


    (thanks once again to worachj)

    After doing this, desktop worked fine, for a little while, and then it would drop out and wouldn't work again until I re-booted my PC. Even after doing this, my Tivo boxes wouldn't show my "What's playing on ***PC". And then after a while it would.

    The first thing I discovered was that when my PC 'went to sleep' I would lose all connections. I solved this by setting my 'power saver' on the PC to "never sleep" so that it doesn't turn off and the connection is maintained.

    For a while after this, the PC still would not show up on one or the other of my Tivo boxes until one day about two weeks ago, everything started working and it has been performing excellently since. I don't know what happened, but I am currently thrilled.
