    Thanks very much. It installed. Now I just have to read the instructions on the website and install the patch.

    You shouldn't need the Desktop patch anymore. They fixed the cookie bug on all TiVos that support TTG.

    I am now seeing my laptop on all three of my Premiere's and can access photos and music.

    Next step is to be able to move video from the laptops to the Tivos.

    For videos you didn't originally record on the Tivo, you might need software to convert your videos to Mpeg 2, if they aren't already in that format.
    VideoReDo is the #1 recommendation around here, mostly due to the editing features.

    Late in getting back, but thanks for the replies. Someone said that Windows Essential Codec would allow me to play back Tivo computer files on Windows Media Center. If so, I could use one of those Media Center remotes to play back, fast forward, etc. I have hundreds of Tivo computer files that I would like to scan through, without having to convert them.

    I think that was me, but I had my Windows products mixed up. Windows Codec Essentials will allow you to play .tivo files on Windows Media Player which is a different animal.
