    I just bought a new (used) Tivo HD for the bedroom. I can transfer from the HD to the downstairs Premier but not the other way around...is this because of the known TTG certificate problem?

    sorry I screwed that title up...from the Premier to the HD doesnt work. I can't even see the Premier on the HD. I CAN see my pytivo shares on the HD though. I'm guessing this is my router blocking Bonjour or the beacon thing?

    Are they on the same account? Or more to the point: do they have the same MAK?

    (It would be normal for pyTivo to show up on machines with different MAKs, since it shares indiscriminately, unless told otherwise.)

    if I log into tivo.com, they are both listed there. Yes same MAK. I got the tivo HD to finally see the premier by making them both a static IP address outside my DHCP range which seemed to work for one transfer but then the premier dropped off the NPL on the tivo hd...weird.

    Try rebooting both Tivos and possibly your router.

    Wait, does he know what 'Reboot' means?

    Some terms to know.

    Soft Reboot = restart from the menu.
    Hard Reboot = Pull the plug, wait a few seconds, plug back in.

    Peninsulam...
    I'm seeing the same basic behavior. We have two Premieres, a TiVO HD and a WHS server running pyTivo. The pyTivo shares and one of the Premieres show up in the TiVo HD NPL. I did a soft reboot of the "missing" Premiere and it showed up...then disappeared.

    sounds like I need to try a different router. Seems that it's blocking them from talking.

    Or you could learn more about the various options available on the router you have now to see if any of them need to be changed.

    But ask somebody else about the details, I know just enough to get into trouble.
