    I've been using Tivo Desktop Plus for a long time now and everything has been working smoothly. I tried everything I could think of- restarting Tivo box, resetting media access key, etc. The signal strength is great but the PC folder is not showing up in Now Playing.

    The only change I've made recently that could be affecting things is I installed a VPN on my PC. However, the PC is not showing up on "Now Playing" even when I'm not connected to the VPN network. Any ideas?

    I assume that you restarted your network. Does your Tivo show up in Desktop? Can you tell where Desktop is pointing to for your folder?

    I don't know.

    It shows up in the taskbar, if that's what you mean.

    I don't know how to do that?

    I had this happen the other day.

    You most likely need to reboot the Tivo. It probably wouldn't hurt to reboot your router at the same time.
    This will re-establish the connection.

    Just to eliminate a variable, do you have the Tivo set up to use DHCP?
