I want to transfer all programming from an XL to new Roamio, then retire the XL. Tivo has instructions for accomplishing this task, one program at a time, which I guess would take ages. So I decided to try to transfer programming from the XL to my PC. I downloaded and installed Tivo Desktop 2.8.3. Even though Desktop AccessControl window shows my DVR "DVR-5686", I cannot see where any DVR programming is listed in Desktop. If I run troubleshooting, here is what is generated: General Information: TiVo Desktop 2.8.412.370 is installed for United States; Windows Firewall is on and is set up for use with TiVo Desktop. TiVo Server: The following TiVo DVRs should be able view the content shared by TiVo Desktop. DVR-5686 748001190255686. Perhaps I needed a license for Desktop Pro to display DVR programming. So I purchased a license. But I can't see where to enter the Pro license number! Tech Support tells me it's in the Help drop down menu, but I can't see it. One entry suggested using Regedit to insert the key. So I entered my key as ASCII text into: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TiVo\Desktop\PlusUpgradeLicenseKey. Still no happiness. Anyone got any suggestions how/where to enter Desktop Pro license key? Or any got any experience transferring programs between Tivo machines. WOW THEY MAKE THIS SOOOOO DIFFICULT.
