    I have been using tivoplaylist successfully for years. 2 days ago it appeared to crash and it dissappeared and my virus software said it had a virus. i reinstalled it after turning my virus software off. Successfully transferred a show and then turned off my computer. I turned it back on the next day opened tivoplaylist and it crashed with the same virus message. I am using avast as my antivirus program. Has anyone had the same problem???? could it all of a sudden have a virus???? I am currently using tivo desktop but it is so slow.

    I suspect your AV, in a recent update, has changed so it detects TPL. There should be some way to configure it to not check TPL.

    Sounds like a false detection. I would send the information to Avast so they can fix it.

    This sounds like a firewall blocking ports preventing connections.
