    I had to switch from Bonjour to Beacon to even have my Roamio "see " my PC in "My Shows"

    But when I actually try to transfer videos from PC to Roamio, either automatically or manually via Tivo desktop 2.8.3, the download starts, then dies with "download rate too slow" messages in history. Even though I have a wireless N ethernet adapter and a 90mb internet router that works just fine transferring to my Premiere. these are small video files that should easily transfer. And daily podcasts subcribed directly on the Roamio are not downloading either

    I've never heard of that error before. A download shouldn't care how slow the download rate is. I wonder if there is something else about these files causing a problem and that error message is just wrong?

    Have you ever tried pyTiVo? It's a bit of a paint to setup, but once it's working it works 100x better then TiVo Desktop for transferring files.

    Did you ever find out how to get the transfers to complete? I'm having the same problem.

    I found the problem. The video files on my PC were too corrupt for Tivo to handle. I downloaded the trial version of VideoReDo and used the "QuickStream Fix" function to clean up my files. They all transferred after they were cleaned up.
