    We have a Premiere, a Series 3 OLED and two Series 2 tivos all networked. Had no issues for the first year after getting the premiere, but a few months ago the Premiere stopped showing up in the Now Playing menu of the Series 3 so we can no longer transfer shows from the Premiere to the S3. Both S2s are still showing on the S3 and functioning for MRV. There have been no changes to our setup.

    However, the Premiere does not seem to be having any problems with the network. The Premiere DOES show up on both of the S2s and shows transfer. And to further confuse the matter, when thinking the Premiere and S3 are just not talking to each other . . . the S3 DOES show up on the Premiere and we can transfer shows from the S3 to the premiere. So the problem is only in one direction, and only between premiere and S3. :confused:

    I have tried unchecking and rechecking them for video transfer on tivo.com, and no change. Any ideas how we can get the S3 to start seeing the premiere again? Thank you.

    The premiere has actually been rebooted MANY times. But that's probably another matter altogether. It freezes at least a few times per week, and has to be unplugged and restarted. I really have found it to be a subpar machine compared to the S3. It has given us numerous headaches starting about a year after we got it. The S3 meanwhile has been a juggernaut going on 5 or 6 years now.

    Had tried that as well, and it didn't help.

    Reboot everything including the Tivos and router.

    Also, you might try giving all of your Tivos a Static IP address if you haven't done so already.

    Can't hurt, might help.

    So close,...
    You also might try turning off MRV on Tivo site, wait a few days then turn it back on. That once worked for me.
