    Help! I am able to use TTCB to pull SD home videos (.mpg) to my Tivo S3, but there is no audio. Video seems to play fine, but zero sound. Any suggestions?

    Yes! I was beginning to think I was the only one.

    I can transfer anything TO my PC, but I get the above error everytime I try to transfer anything back to the S3.

    Any ideas?

    what file formats are you having trouble with.

    so far for me it's not happening with .tivo files or mpeg2, only avi.

    I havent tried anything but .tivo files, I'll try the other formats later and see if they'll transfer.

    I even tried transfering stuff from my wife's PC and had the same problem.

    Was the program you were concerned about captioned "live" or was it recorded and captioned later? Live unscripted programs always have a few seconds delay because the captioner can't press the buttons until s/he hears the words. Frequently the captioner is in a different part of the country which adds to the electronic transmission delays.

    Pre-recorded programs can be synced properly. Live programs that work from a script may also be captioned properly because they simply feed the teleprompter to the closed captions.

    Appologies if this is the wrong forum to ask this. I have a Tivo HD and just downloaded the desktop 2.5.1. Apparently of my 82 recording all are copy protected and can't be transfered EXCEPT the hi-def law and order recordings. This appears to be exactly backward of what my understanding was. Anyone else experience this?

    bkdtv:

    Great FAQ

    I hope that I'm not asking too much. I know that the end of the first message shows when you have edited it but might it be possible for you to place a date at the top of the message, too so that it can be glanced at to see if it has been edited recently?? (too bad the software does not show the edit line at the top in some cases)

    so, I'm thinking part of my problem may be frame rate as none of the files i am having trouble with are the recommended 29.97. but if that were the issue, wouldn't it not transfer at all? As I've pointed out before, i can get all of these files to start transferring and can watch them as they do, and there is no prob with picture or sound. but then somewhere along the way it fails.

    anyway, what would be the easiest way to change the frame rates on these avi files so i can test to see if that is the issue? kind of a drag because I thought TD Plus would allow me to upload files without any transcoding at all.

    I have a S3 and S2 DT My Tivos can see each other, but since the update (9.2j) my computer cannot see either of my Tivos. I am ecstatic that I can now transfer between Tivos, but would like the option with computer as well.
    My Tivos can access my pictures and music on my computer.
    Tried forcing a connection, no luck
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Tivo desktop, but same thing.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    Are you using any kind of third-party firewall or security software?

    yes, but I have given Tivo Desktop server access and I would have thought Tivo would not be able to access my music and photos if this was the problem

    I have taken non-hd home movies and got them in MP4 so they can play on my Apple TV and Ipod. It sounds like I can transfer them to my Tivo. I have paid for the upgraded desktop but how do I get them to show up on my tivo.? Do I move these files to My Tivo Recordings folder? Thanks.

    I believe these use different ports, so the fact that one is working does not necessarily mean anything for the other.

    I'm not certain what ports Tivo Desktop requires to grab a list of recordings from the TiVo -- maybe 80 and 443? If someone else knows for certain, hopefully they will post.

    Yes, you need to either move the files or put shortcuts to them in your "My Tivo Recordings" folder for them to show up in TD+.

    Broadcast channels should not be copy protected, even when received via cable. Other than all of TNTHD and some of Discovery HD Theater, all of my digital cable recordings are marked as copy protected.

    Thanks. I'm amazed that my home movies are now on my tivo. The fast forward is awesome compared to Apple TV. Its just like Tivo recordings which is great. Now if I can get home movies in a folder called "Home Movies" I would be psyched. Any chance of this?

    I think it's possible with .TiVo files (that contain all the original program information data) but I don't think it's possible otherwise. Don't know if anyone has developed an application that can create .TiVo files with the relevant program description data filled out, but that seems doable now that .TiVo files have been cracked.

    TivoDecode can decrypt a .tivo file, but does it know how to re-encrypt it? Wouldn't that be necessary?

    Galleon does some of this stuff already I think (folders?)

    Maybe I misread that thread but Galleon can present itself to Tivo with programs in folders but AFAIK nobody has figured out how to push files onto Tivo and make them go into their own folders.

    Ah, that is probably my misunderstanding. Makes sense.
