    TiVo announced that TTG and MRV go live today.

    Here is TiVoPony's post which I copied from about 15 posts down.

    Well, this is odd. I woke up to TTG and MRV on my Series 3 this morning, however, I still have 9.1?

    Why do we need to "make sure"?

    The foundation has been there even before 9.1. It was controlled by the account status flags that you download. 9.2 probably has all the latest bug fixes so it is advisable to have (thought it has its own issues as well)

    My account shows transfers allowed for my two THDs with 9.2. Unfortunately, the THD I got yesterday is still at 8.1, and I haven't been able to force an update yet.

    Also, the TiVo Transfer software inside Toast Titanium 8 (for Macintosh) is not listing any of the THDs. So that software may not have caught up yet.

    I got 9.2 last night and I was still listed as i,i,i on my Series3.

    Whoa, spoke too soon... on TiVo.com my S3 is now showing "Transferred ALLOWED" :)

    Now I just gotta get my new Intel iMac (next week) so I can install Windows. Because I refuse to pay for something on my Mac that Windows users get for free.

    Both my S3s are now a,a,a. Transfers are enabled on my TiVo account. I can see the "Now Playing" list of the other S3. When I try to use MRV to play back a remote show I get an error.

    "This program was not transferred onto this DVR because the program was recorded in an unknown format"

    It says this for both SD digital and HD digital. None of the shows in question are CCI=non-zero. Both units are running 9.2.J1. Both units have been rebooted.

    Oooo I guess it's time for me to spring for the second TiVoHD. Mine went to 9.1xxx yesterday and I put it on the list for 9.2.

    Or maybe I should add my unused S2 DT to the subscription and see how things work before buying another HD

    Question: I don't want to spend extra for the CCs on the second TiVoHD and if I can't transfer a HD program from the one with the cards to the one just running OTA and/or basic cable, should I even buy another HD?

    I just checked one of my S2s and it can see my S3(I only checked the one so far). of course I can't actually transfer anything from my S3 as everything on it is HD. they even have a nifty little red symbol[​IMG] that lets you know you can't transfer the programs.

    wow, that little image is bigger than I thought.

    TiVo PR told me 9.2 was required, but I haven't verified it personally.

    I'm sure you will be able to transfer HD programs between S3/HD boxes (assuming no copy restriction has been imposed on the program) but not from a S3/HD box to a S2 box.

    Cablecards have nothing to do with it.

    Yes, both my "old" S3 with 9.2 (as of this AM) and my brand new S3 with 8.3 both now show "Transfers Allowed" on the "Manage My Account" page, though there have been no notices from TiVo that I've seen,

    This is my first venture into the world of TTG. Is there a nice FAQ I could look at to get me started?

    Also, if TTG is enabled, does that mean TTCB is also enabled?

    We know with mismatched software that transfers should not work

    Great question if TTCB is enabled, that is the most important thing to me, I just recently removed my second TV, I want to get movies of my server to my Tivo HD.
