    I have two TiVos, have had for years. An HD and an XL. Both are connected to wireless APs. Been having a problem transferring since day one of having two devices. Actually it's more like since day three of having two devices.

    When initially connected, both TiVos could see each other and see the Now Playing / My Shows list, and transfer recordings between the two. After a couple of days, one or the other would simply no longer show up on the other device. Transferring was more one way at that point.

    Recently I changed the non-TiVo WAP for a legitimate TiVo WAP and viola it worked again... for two days. Now even though both TiVos can see each other on the wireless network, neither can see the Now Playing/My Shows content. When I try, I get a message "<device> My Shows could not be displayed because of a network problem. Um... BOWLSHYTE

    Now, before anyone goes Captain Obvious on me...
    I've rebooted, hard wired, checked the account settings, DHCP / Static, Forced a Service connection, sacrificed a virgin goat, and everything else that's painfully obvious to a computer engineer. Nada.

    Every other network related function works perfectly fine. YouTube, Amazon, Music, everything but the transferring. One evening it was working, next morning it wasn't.

    Anyway, have seen several threads on here about how theirs mysteriously came to life... any clues? Serious clues.

    Another thing to try:

    in your tivo.com account, under DVR Preferences,

    1. Uncheck all checkboxes for all your Tivos.
    2. Force connections on your Tivos and wait until they are completely processed (and ready for another connection).
    3. Reboot the Tivos.
    4. Re-check your tivo.com preferences.
    5. Force another set of Tivo connections.

    Make sure your wireless router can pass multicast packets. Certain brands are brain dead when it comes to multicast packets.
