    I have a Netgear WNDR3700, using the 5GHz and N TiVo adapters worked great on my TPs until I put in the newest firmware upgrade in the router, than I was getting somewhat what you are seeing, went back to the older firmware and all problems went away. Some routers/firmware just have problems, don't know why. My daughter had MRV problems, had her change routers and all problems went away.
    It is a mystery to me, but i am not a network expert.

    Had this same issue. Fios user. My XL4 and TiVo HD couldn't see each other. Both could see my PC with TiVo desktop.

    Could not solve the issue. Tried everything!

    Then I woke up one morning and everything was working again. My advice, give it 4-5 days! May well solve itself.

    And each Tivo can see all the other TiVos, but not their shows (my playing list).

    Yep, same issue with me. Each Tivo could see the other machine, but couldn't view the shows. They (XL4 and TiVo HD) gave different error messages, but same result.

    As I said, then it just worked!

    It seems to me that there is always some little glitch. I do a lot of MRS between my two Premieres and, over all, it goes well - from one end anyway.

    If I am in the living rm watching programs from the bdrm Tivo it's fine 99% of the time (just the other day I had one of those V68 errors, for the first time in ages, but then it was fine again).

    But if I'm in the bdrm watching a program from the living rm Tivo it's, much more often than not, all skippy and weird. Both same equipment - same Tivo N adapters, etc. I have no idea why it works better from one side than the other.

    OK, I took some switches out of the network, re inserted some ethernet connections, and got some of my shows showing. Example: on one TiVo can see all other TiVos, and all their shows. Several hours later, they disappeared What's with that??
