    Can you re-phrase your question? What do you need to do with the Roamio recordings?

    Recordings transferred to my PC and then over to my HD DVR have a red circle with a red slash through it and I get the message, "Recordings are in HD and are not compatible with your HD DVR.

    They'll do that when you check the "transfer faster" option in Tivo Desktop or pytivo, the S3 units can't use those files, only the Premiere and above can.

    I believe it has to do with using a TS Stream instead of a whole chunk transfer.
    and for the bazillionth time RusRus, it's not an "HD DVR" I believe you're referring to a Tivo S3 or a Tivo HD, you confuse everyone when you keep referring to it that way.

    If you have a TCD648250, call it an S3, if you have a TCD652160, call it an HD or an S3 HD.

    Although TiVo gets a lot of the blame for bringing out the original S3 (the 648) and putting HD all over the box and everything, and then turning around and bringing out a model they named the HD.

    Come to think of it, just use 648 or 652 and there won't be any confusion.
