I'm pretty sure that autotransfer works the same as manual transfer in that the TiVo Desktop program tells the TiVo to start the transfer, and not the other way around, so I suspect that when the computer is started again, and Desktop, or at least the server portion of it, is started again, it'll notice that it's supposed to check with the TiVo to see if there are any new episodes of "insertshownamehere" to be autotransferred, and if there are, it'll tell the TiVo to start transferring.
