    I'll keep being patient, but it's been 5 hours (which last time I checked is longer than 15-20 minutes) since I got a,a,a on the status and still no media key. :(

    I waited over 2 hours for the key to generate and still no joy. Also rebooted both Tivos and still no joy...

    BTW does each Tivo generate a Key, or is it just the same key that is available from Tivo.com under Media Access Key?

    Have you forced a reconnect? That's what I had to do.

    I agree I know I should be patient but it has been over 3 hours and I have forced so many connections Tivo has probably blocked me out.

    I am a beginner to transferring shows between tivos. "Allow transfers" is checked on my account. What software do i need to install, if any? Where on the Tivo screen will this show up? Thank you.

    No software neede to transfer between Tivos, each Tivo will show up at the bottom of the others Now Playing List. To use TTG you need Tivo Desktop on your PC.

    This explains why TiVo's servers were down for maintenance last night.

    Transfering from the Series 3 without issue.

    Anyone else having the problem of transfers halted due to "recorded in unknown format"? It's happening on my S3 => THD and THD => S3.

    I'm still on 9.1 if that matters (waiting for priority 9.2).

    OK, apparently 20 forced connections is the magic number. ;)

    I finally got a media access key and my TiVo has a name in the system preferences that matches what I put in on the TiVo web site.

    Now transferring from an S2 to an THD without any problems -- so far.

    Just very slow -- and that's over a wired network.

    If someone is coming over here to post something as earth shattering as MRV and TTG being turned on, I think a source link is expected.

    I am thankful that he came over to post this news before we heard about it from TiVo or anyone else.

    Thanks for the news bdraw, :up: :up: :up:

    I'm doing a transfer now. I'm moving a copy of NUMB3RS in HD -- 7,892MB. It's looking like the download will complete in 1.5 hours, maybe less. My S3 and laptop are wired into a 100MB switch.

    Let me be the first to say that I'm more than a little surprised that tools we've all come to know and love work on the transfered recordings. 'nuff said.

    Mine is showing up now also. Maybe Tivo is having to do something with everyones account for it to issue the key and they are sending it out in batches. I now have the Media Key showing up and also the name of the DVR in the System Information Screen.

    Testing now ...

    - My S3 is still on 9.1 and it is happily transferring content from my S2 to the S3 and from the S3 to my S2 AT THE SAME TIME!!!. I'm going to love this. I have both TiVo's side-by-side. I don't intend to use them in multiple rooms. But I love the ability to "load balance" the system by moving my permanent recordings from the S2 to the much more capacious eSATA drive on my S3.

    - When I went to TiVo's "Manage my accounts" page, the "Transfer Allowed" setting was already activated - I guess I must have clicked on that at some point in the past.

    - AS with CrisypCritter, my S3 can see the name of my S2 ("Dale's Series 2), but not the other way around, my S2 just says "DVR" instead of "Dale's Series 3" as I have named it. But, it still works.

    Update: I just noticed that in the "System Information" screen on my S3 it says "<Name this DVR on tivo.com> which is really odd because I have named it on TiVo.com, I named it on TiVo.com a long time ago and when I visit "Manage my Account" on TiVo.com it is properly named. I have just renamed my two TiVos to see if the new names take.

    I reset my transfer flag this morning at 8 am. A hour ago I went home for lunch and forced a connection on my HD.

    Immediately afterward I could transfer from my PC running Tivo Desktop and Transfer from my S2 DT. Also was able to Transfer from HD to S2DT without problem.

    The only issue I have is that the name on the HD is still not updated. The HD has been setup for two weeks and is running 9.2

    Anyone know if TiVo-to-come back movies transferred from Mpeg4 / H.264 stay that way on the S3. I have copied my workout-videos to my S2 just a couple weeks ago. They are all in H.264. TiVo Desktop converted them to Mpeg2 while transferring to the S2 (obviously). I'd rather keep them in H.264 format and copy them to the S3 if the S3 has turned on its native support for H.264. Anyone know?
