    Will the FREE Tivo Desktop play VUZE files or do we need the Desktop PLUS?

    TIA

    It's been a while, but I'm fairly certain you don't need TiVo Desktop installed.

    Thanks! I have utorrent but I hear that VUZE is better. Can we specify HD content or is the Torrent part the same as all of the others? I have a few shows I used utorrent on and I have .mkv files. Can I load them into VUZE and have the TIVO's in my house see them?

    VUZE let you search by title. After you download a show you then drag it to the TiVo, Playstation3 or X-Box icon.

    Is TiVo support in the Linux version of Vuze?

    I'm wondering because I have the Linux version installed and it works fine for torrenting, but I'm unable to find out how to turn on the Device Playback support. I don't see any "Devices" button the sidebar like they show on the Vuze website.

    Great...I can install it and see if I can drag my previously downloaded .mkv file to the TIVO Icon. I assume VUZE will let me open the mkv and then drag it.

    Anybody have issues with the conversion process to TiVo from Vuze? I have been using Vuze for a while now, but most of the time i try to move the file to the Tivo device list the conversion starts and then stalls at some point only partially done. I can leave it for days and it stays at the same % of conversion. Restarting sometimes gets it a little further, or sometimes a little lower %.

    Any ideas?

    Just tried this transfering from VUZE to the TIVO premiere and it was VERY easy and fast. I am really impressed with it.

    Do they support pushing it from Vuze yet or do you still have to pull it using the TiVo to initiate.

    What is the best peer to peer software that would transfer bit torrent(s) from your computer to your TiVo?

    I'm currently using Vuze but I have the following error message; transcode failed operation aborted. Does anyone have an idea what it means?

    (This is now solved)

    I need some help. I have downloaded a torrent using Vuze. I want to convert it so I can watch it on TiVo. This used to be so easy. I have a new installation of Vuze. I don't have the sidebar on the left where I could turn on devices and just drag the file over and it would automatically transcode.

    I searched and all answers appear to be for the old interface with the sidebar.

    Please help!

    Solution

    The left sidebar with devices wasn't showing up. For some reason a fresh install started with the classic UI as the default. However, when I went in to look what UI it showed that I was in the "Vuze" or current interface. I finally went in and changed it to the classic interface. The interface stayed the same and then changed it back to the modern interface and then the sidebar and devices appeared.

    Bumping an old thread, with the 20.4.2 Tivo update, this doesn't seem to work anymore. on the Tivo side Vuze no longer appears and the same is true on the Vuze side.
    This really sucks because it worked really well...

    bumping my own thread, this cannot annoy just me. This worked so well, now there is no option to stream local files.

    It's working for me. I just downloaded and converted several shows on Vuze and then transferred them to my Roamio. Vuze showed up as a device in Now Playing.

    What kind of computer?
    I have a MacPro upstairs with some shares that work with Streambaby
    VUZE is 5.4.0.0 - but I don't see "devices" option in the menu.
    Roamio base under 20.4.4 - again, don't see any VUZE link on its menus ...

    Has Vuze ever updated the transcoding profiles for newer TiVos? I have a Roamio Pro and when Vuze transcodes it transcodes to MPEG-2, even when the file is in H.264, which makes for a transcoded file that's a LOT bigger than the source file.
