Also, I have the TiVo desktop use another area for the cache. TiVo Desktop is using Bonjour for the transfers. I tried Beacon and had the same problem.
When the transfer is interrupted there is no segments on my hard drive. It did not transfer anything. This is the same for dozens of different HD files. Then I transfer a SD file and it works great. My ethernet connection from the TiVo is plugged directly into my wireless router. I even disabled all firewalls and severely reduced any programs running in the background. I did once plug my ethernet cable from the TiVo directly into my PC and it did work, but the transfer of one HD file stated it would take 12 hours to finish for a one hour program!
I did try to transfer using the internet and it failed in the same way. I also removed my cordless phone (2.4GHz) from next to the PC and ho help at all.
Any other suggestions for me?
Create another folder on the same partition as the My TiVo Recordings folder and move all the shows into the new folder.
Delete the cache folder it was using.
Reboot the computer.
(2.8.3 is just 2.8.2 with something added for the new DirecTiVo, so either will do)
After it's set up you can move the shows back into the MTR folder.
Might help, no guarantees.
I've seen times when Desktop can copy an hour show in about 30 minutes and times when it takes 2 or 3 hours or more, no rhyme or reason.
It's better than nothing, but it's not the best piece of software in the world by a long shot.
