CaccaMucca: Thank you for your reply and the info/feedback. Much appreciated. You are correct - I made the transfer using a wireless router. One of the ones recommended by TiVo on their website (btw I tried to get another one for the other TiVo DVR, and can't find them now. It does seem they're doing all they can to stop us from transferring or dubbing anything?). The time length isn't so much an issue that I'd want to spend still more money on more equipment (even $10) but thank you for the option. Who knows, I may yet do that. Oh, and the no-sound or low-sound meant on playback (of the transferred show) in my computer. Not of the machinery in use. The real issue proved to be that I still can't dub the program! After all that. Not even a screenshot. But as for dvd transfer - there is no way in the TiVo desktop program to allow it. I went back to the TiVo website? And guess what - they want you to shell out $50 or $100 more (depending how many bells/whistles you get) to buy a software program that will let you make the dvd on your computer. Sheesh, do they get us coming & going or what?! Needless to say, I'm not buying the software program when I've already just bought a brand-new machine supposedly able to do the same thing. If they never come out with a patch, I predict class action lawsuit. Disabling everyone's DVR has got to be illegal. Truth in advertising and all that. But as for myself, I'll just find another way to make Dvds that doesn't involve TiVo at all - while pushing pins in a tiny effigy of Tubey or whatever its name is. No way to treat customers, TiVo. Btw, I am able to make one disc a day in the DVR from prerecorded programs, if I use the unplug-DVR machine-for-at-least-half-an-hour-before-burning option. But no more than once a day.
