    I can transfer HD content from local channels like NBC, CBS, etc. Everything I have recorded from HBO HD is not available for transfer, which is what I expected. Stupid, but expected.

    Ok...

    9.2, a,a,a on both Tivo HDs, in Program List I can see the other DVR as well as TTC server, but on both Tivos No Programs in program list for each other and the TTG server. Also trying to access TTG from PC does not work. On both Tivos under Media Access Key it shows Temporary Unavailable.

    Plus, I'm pretty pi**ed off that I have to buy a program (Toast) to get TTG to work on my Mac but it is free for Windows users. Although, I'm sure this has been beaten to death in the past here. I'm new to Tivo, so forgive me. I'll sit in my office pi**ed off for a few minutes alone and then I should be better.

    Is the way for Mac users to use a browser to access their Now Playing list to directly download .tivo files to their desktop enabled too?

    I realize once on the Mac those .tivo files are useless without the $80 TTG Mac software but it would be easier for me to use the browser to get the files, then moved them to a Windows machine than to have to use Windows to even download the files.

    I guess it kinda sux you cant transfer HD content via TTCB to an HD unit but I myself have no need for it, stuff takes up too much room on my servers anyhow. They probably have that set up to thwart pirating of movies and stuff. All of mine are in SD anyhow, be nice if it would upconvert them however :)

    Tivo website says transfers enabled but when I click on DVR in the now playing list it says "The remote DVR has no recordings" both S3's say this. I can not see the others Now Playing list, and TTG says access denied. I even unchecked the boxes on tivos website, rechecked them and forced another connection but am still getting the same response, system information shows a,a,a.
    Anybody know why?

    Thanks. Just forced a connection on the new unit and it's installing a service release now (hopefully 9.2).

    I just woke up a few minutes ago, and discovered this thread. After going and enabling transfers, it took two connections to TiVo for the transfer status to flip to "a,a,a", then a few more minutes for the Media Access Key to show up. I'm now transferring a show via TiVoToGo - an HD show, even. Awesome. Thank you Pony, and thanks to everyone at TiVo!

    Did you provide the appropriate Media Access Keys? Your TiVo may take a few minutes to generate its MAK the first time, but you need to provide it for the TiVo to provide downloads of the stored shows.

    You have forced connections to get the certificates like Pony had said right?

    I have the Transfers working on all 3 boxes (S3, S2 and THD), but on the S3 it shows the following boxes:

    "DVR" - which is my THD
    "Bedroom" - which is my S2
    "LAPTOP" - which is my PC

    and also, "_tivo-videos DVR" - which appears to be a duplicate of my THD (exact same NPL)

    Any idea where that name came from or why my THD shows up twice?

    I have forced 4 connections on both S3's just tried it again still the same. Is everybody else showing something different than "media accrss key temporarily unavailable" when they select media access key on their Tivo's? :(

    Well all appears to be setup, but every thing that I try to transfer from THD to S3 fails saying it was recorded in an unknown format. This includes HD-cable, HD-OTA and analog-cable.

    Yes, I also have "_tivo-videos DVR" listed and it is a duplicate of "DVR" (my second S3)

    Can one transfer to Tivos not made by tivo. I.e. the Humax Tivo/DVD? Can you transfer to a Tivo that has a "Basic" service option? Can one transfer to a tivo that does not have active service subscription? Meaning the subscription runs out, and just use it as a media extender not as a regular tivo, per se.
