    I am having a problem with both my Tivo's. I have a S3 and a Tivo HD and I am currently unable to transfer and show from either Tivo to either of the 2 PC's that I currently have the Tivo Desktop installed on. I am able to transfer Tivo to Tivo, and PC to Tivo just fine, but can not transfer Tivo to PC.

    When I open the Tivo software I can see the Tivo's and select the show to transfer, but when I start it I get an error, the status is shows is Failed.

    I also have pyTivo installed on one of my PC's and it is also unable to transfer the shows from Tivo to PC.

    If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate the help.

    There is an update on PyTivo, Kmttg, for this issue. As well as Tivo Desktop, there is a fix, it just requires you to edit a file in a text editor such as notepad.

    Search your computer for the file "curl.conf"
    add a line to the bottom of the file ---> cookie = "Sid = abc"
    Save file.

    Thanks for all the help. Editing the curl.conf file did the trick.
