    I am running v2.83 of TiVo Desktop Pro. I use it to copy programs from my DVR, and use the 7 or 8 TB of storage I have on my computer as a place to keep programs, as opposed to the drive on the TiVo itself (which is much smaller).

    I transfer things back and forth all the time. However, I've had issues transferring the Opening & Closing Ceremonies from the Olympics. I try, and they transfer, but they never seem to finish.

    I've tried multiple times with the closing ceremonies, and it stops during the moment when the cauldron is lowered. It never finishes out. I can't figure out why.

    Is it merely the length? I wouldn't think so, because I've transferred MLB games that are as long as 4.5 hours. I'm at a loss to explain why neither of these transfer properly, when other things do.

    Suggestions?

    P.S. My TiVo Premiere is hardwired into my router, but the desktop computer where I'm backing up to is wireless. This hasn't been a problem before.

    View the video on the Tivo where it stopped transferring and there must be some kind of glitch at that point. You can view past that point and pause it. Using the latest KMTTG, you can then transfer from paused point, using an option in the menu, I think its called "resume" checkbox.

    There's no visible issue at that point in the show on my TiVo.

    Also, no idea what KMTTG is. I'm just using the regular TiVo Desktop software.

    LOL Just take a look around. :) The kmttg thread is the largest one on this forum and is rarely off the first page. At the moment I first viewed this thread the kmttg thread was just 7 entries down from your post. I think ThAbtO was suggesting you should consider using kmttg to address your issue

    IMO, TDP is old school.

    Maybe, but I've been using it for years in copying shows without a problem. This was the first.

    Saying "use different software" really isn't any help.

    Toggle Fast Transfers setting to be opposite of what you have currently and try download again.

    I had it set to "on". I turned it off, and tried again. Crapped out in the same position. I might try transferring it to my second TiVo, and then try transferring from there. See if it makes any difference. There's nothing at that spot on the show - I've looked.

    Just becasue you don't see a glitch in the displayed video does not mean there is no glitch in the data.

    TDT is such a lousy pile of crap I would be tempted to say it is a problem with TDT, but in fairness in this case I doubt it. If you can get the video to transfer from one TiVo to another then you might be able to transfer from the 2nd Tivo to your PC, but I wouldn't hold my breath. When encountering an issue of the sort you mention, better than 75% of the time the only recoruse was to transfer via tserver, but if your TiVo is unmodified, then that is not an option for you. You could try transferring via your favorite web browser, but franlky if TDT is failing, then I suspect it won't successfully transfer via your browser, either. It certainly won't hurt to try.

    Since you already have most of the program on your computer, use the 'transfer from paused point' feature to the 2nd Tivo.
    Pause the program just after the transfer stopping point on the 1st Tivo.
    Transfer from paused point to the 2nd Tivo and then from 2nd Tivo to computer.
    Use editing software on the computer to stitch the two back together.

    I transferred it from my primary TiVo to my bedroom TiVo. That worked fine. No problem.

    However, when I went to transfer it to my computer from the bedroom TiVo.. Same problem. Sigh. Oh well.

    What about from your Bedroom Tivo to PC?

    Did you try using a browser for the transfer? I find it unlikely it will work, but there's always a slim chance, and it won't hurt to try.

    How do I do that? Is that standard equipment or is that something I have to modify my TiVo to do?

    I didn't know they could do that. I just tried it on both my TiVo boxes, both of them said "Resource Not Found".

    Did you replace "YourTiVoIP" with your Tivo's IP address?

    ie: Https: //192.168.1.110/nowplaying/index.html

    Hey, I'm just trying to help figure out what happened for you to get "Resource Not Found!", not being a wise-but.
