I've got an Elite (Verizon Fios service), and I have been able to connect it to my network. I can use my computer (Dell - Windows 7) and see my recordings, and transfer them. No problems there.
I cannot for the life of me get my photo folder to show up on my Elite after attaching one on the Tivo desktop program. I had a Series 3 where the photo folder showed up fine. I tried deleting the folder from the Tivo desktop, and re-attaching it. Re-starting the Tivo, re-starting my computer. I can't figure out what is wrong as the connection is clearly there and working OK.
