I have to add my THANKS to the curl.conf fix and even the timestamp workaround. I rarely use my Tivo Desktop (w/S2) to the point that I had disabled all the related services that I felt bogged down my computer needlessly. But today after about 1-2 years of non-use, I had a need to transfer a tivo file so I re-enabled everything and was quite pleased when Desktop started up smoothly and showed me my DVR recordings. But, alas timing is everything!!! The transfer attempt failed. If only I had done this a couple of weeks ago. Nice that the error message was so helpful too (NOT!) Fortunately, from previous experiences, I knew to head immediately to TivoCommunity. It took hardly any time to find these threads. Yea!! I did the time-stamp workaround reluctantly and a transfer is in progress now. As soon as it completes, I will undo that and try the curl.conf fix. I hope when (if?) TIvo fixes this in its software, the workaround doesn't cause a problem.
