    I read the thread Sudden problem transferring from Premiere to PC and it seemed the fix was to edit the edit the curl.config or curl.conf located in the %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local as pointed out by Krellion (Response 18

    However, when I looked in this location, I did not have either file.

    I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and TiVo Desktop 2.8.2.

    I have been under the weather and have not checked on it for awhile.

    Do I create this file ( curl.config or curl.conf ?) and add cookie = "sid=abc" ? And is there an easier way to have the Desktop download everything or do I have to manually choose each one?

    (I tried pyTiVo but I just could not get my head around it unfortunately.)

    Thank you!

    I found the curl.conf in the C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\TiVo Desktop and added cookie = "sid=abc" on the top line. Manually queuing them now (unless I see that it starts to re-download).

    If you alreadt tried to transfer some programs and now have a RED X in the shows to transfer list you might have to uninstall and reinstall desktop. Thats what I had to do. Be sure to make the change in the curl file before you try to do a transfer.

    Thanks, adding the line to that file seemed to work. I just went thru and chose to re-download each show.

    Another easy solution. Download a freeware program - Beyondo. Ir will temporarily change your system date and when your transfers are done, go back to the current date.
