    Change cable providers and record them again?

    The X is showing up in Desktop, not on the TiVo itself?

    Does Desktop give any other clue than the X as to what the problem might be?

    Clear out Desktop's cache file. Might help, shouldn't hurt.

    And, as always, make sure all the MAKs match and reboot everything on the network.

    Before fixing the problem with the desktop I tried to transfer 2 programs from the TivoHD to my PC. Desktop said it couldnt find the programs and put a red X where the box is usually found for checking which programs to transfer. After fixing the problem the red X is still next to the program name in the window where you select which programs you want to transfer. Everything is OK in the now playing list on the Tivo itself. It looks like I may have to uninstall Tivo desktop and reinstall it. Trying to find a way that doesnt invole doing that.
    You would think that Tivo woud come out with a fix for this whole thing by now.

    I've uninstalled and re-installed Desktop before, and it's relatively painless.

    Just make a copy of your edit curl.conf file to put back to overwrite the regular one, or just edit it again after the re-install.

    It could be that somehow those shows are caught in an almost about to be transferred limbo in some settings somewhere.

    Perhaps if you go online to your account at tivo.com and de-activate transferring on that TiVo and let that set for a day or three, and force some connects afterwards, and then go back and re-activate it, it'll undo whatever's stuck.

    I uninstalled Tivo Desktop and reinstalled it, made the change to the file and now everything is working the way it is suppose to. Not sure where the Desktop must be writing something making it so you cant transfer a program if it couldnt be found before the work around.

    Until TiVo releases source code for everything, i.e., never, we're all just making it up as we go along, and relying on hunches and instinct as much as experience.

    Glad it got straightened out for you in relatively painless fashion.

    For failed transfers (red X), you just need to go into the Transfer Status window on TiVo Desktop and select them and tell it to "retry" them. With the fix in place, they should work then. If not, you should be able to delete the transfers from that same window and then re-setup the transfers as normal.

    I'd been having this same problem but found a fix yesterday that worked. IE safety may give you a warning about this site but Norton said it is safe. Here is a link to the site with the fix: support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/196 (you'll have to copy/paste to URL; sorry)

    Which is really stupid 'cause .3 is just .2 with some crap added for the DirecTV model they finally got embarrassed into releasing when Duke Nukem Forever actually appeared.
