    I have 2 premiere's and an S2 and all are over 2 years old. None of them will download anything. The premiers will however transfer from one to the other.

    Attempting to launch Netflix on my Premiere is giving me the stupid "V301" error which in the past only a reboot will resolve, so I'm going to cross my fingers and reboot once/if the net connect ever finishes...

    I'm having the same issue today with my TivoHD using kmttg on Mac-- also unable to download with iTivo.

    Interestingly, I tried using the Tivo Transfer tool I still have installed and it's working. Unfortunately it doesn't download HD.

    It looks like curl isn't sending the session ID (sid) cookie to the TiVo. If I manually enter the sid cookie, the download starts. The sid is in the cookie jar, but it isn't being sent to the server on the TiVo.

    I too noticed neither of my TiVo HD's were allowing downloads via kmttg today. I turned on the option "use java for downloads instead of curl" in the kmttg config and was then able to download shows. :up:

    Interesting. Works for me too. But the fact downloading with a browser doesn't work and that the curl download method that has worked for years no longer does implies there is something wrong still...

    This must be why I was able to download from my Tivos today, I use Java downloads via KMTTG and not curl.

    Edit: I just tried a download by the firefox browser and got the SID error.
    Edit2: This is what I got with KMTTG set to "Not use Java"
    Code:
    <h2>Bad Request</h2>

    With Java enabled, it works fine.

    Edit 3: PyTivo gives me "Initiating Transfer, Please Wait", then Error 400.
    PyTivo pushes work.

    Dumping the HTTP headers on mine showed it giving a session id cookie that was already expired (Sat Feb 16 00:00 GMT), so the client doesn't send it back to the Tivo. Hence, no session id.

    Setting the clock back on the computer 'fixes' it.

    Is that true for those of us running Desktop?

    To anwer my own question, it fixes it for Desktop as well.

    I just told one of my PCs that today is the 13th, and started a transfer and it's doing it and doing it quickly.

    So congratulations, notting, you found the reason.

    Now we need TiVo to tell us the reason for the reason, including why S2s and S3s are affected, and even more important, we need for them to fix it.

    Weird - of all the things I thought to try to fix the problem, I would never have thought of that, but that seems to have resolved the problem (I'm running Tivo Desktop Plus on a PC with two Series 2s).

    Wow. I'm so used to random technology problems nobody can explain that I'm surprised to see so many people with the same problem I have! That boosts my spirits that I'm not alone in it.

    I normally just point my web browser at my Tivo Premiere on my LAN and download files that way. I can't get the official Tivo Desktop software to work for some reason, but straight downloads by HTTP worked fine... until last night.

    Is there a way to fix this other than setting the clock back? I'm not sure what you mean by "use java for downloads". (Kind of a neophyte here.)

    Edit: Mighta helped if I'd read page one of the thread. I got a copy of KMTTG and installed it, found the setting in question. I'm in the middle of "disable transfers, wait, reenable them" as a solution which I'd googled up for this problem before, but once that's done, I'll try using this. VERY impressive program so far! Even connects to my videoredo!

    EditEdit: WOOHOO! IT WORKS! KMTTG, you are my hero. I'm able to download my shows again! Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.

    Just wanted to say "thanks" for everyone posting the fixes. I am on traveling and needed to get this working. I did the date rollback first, then saw the java option.

    I'm a programmer and have seen this type of issue before with javascript (and certificates). Glad someone dumped the headers to see what was really going on.

    I think kmttg is fantastic and hope the underlying issue gets fixed soon. Thanks again!

    Technically, the fact that it works in kmttg's Java mode is a bug in kmttg. It's a case of two wrongs making a right. ;)

    It's actually not a bug since it is coded intentionally to accept any certificate, even expired ones as in this case.

    The bug, apparently, is in the TiVos themselves, since rolling back the PC clock lets it work again.

    People were seeing the issue with Tivo Desktop as well. This is why I figured it was more of a Tivo issue. Either way I'm just happy people were able to post a work around. Thanks everyone!

    It's a cookie, not a certificate.
