    On my TiVo menu is a "Now Playing on HP" line. If I select this, there's nothing playing. I'm guessing HP is my desktop computer. Is this where I might see something I'd purchased, like from Netflix or Amazon?

    Or something streaming?

    How would I test this with a free selection?

    I have a wireless home network and Comcast cable for internet, but the TiVo itself is hard-wired, modem and router, not wireless.

    You'd see something there if you had installed the TiVoToGo software on that PC and had pointed it at a local folder full of videos. Your TiVo can then see those videos and transfer them over. You can also arrange for content from the TiVo to be copied to the PC on a regular basis and either watch it onthe PC or transfer it to any number of portable devices.
