    I have a Tivo App on my Ipad... I can pull up everything by using my Media Access Key....

    However on TivoDesktop 2.8.3, it continually says that there is no Tivo DVR on the network... one time it finally showed all my shows but would not let me transfer to my PC----I rechecked the Media Access Key and it was correct.

    Any ideas?

    I've found that when something is recording on my Tivo, my listings show up in TivoDesktop----when I try to save one, I get a failed error.... sometimes a "element not found" error

    If I am not recording anything, the Tivo Desktop fails to recognize the Tivo on the network

    Did you update with the recent patch? Lots of threads show the issue that arose with TD.
