I am running TIVO Desktop 2.7 upgraded from 2.62 last month when it first started happening. I have 3 TIVOS. 2 DT and 1 regular single tuner. They can all see each other just fine. When I open the TIVO Desktop application I can see all 3 TIVOS and all the files on them. When I go to the Now Playing list on either of the TIVOS it says that my PC has no recordings. I keep 10 or so files in there at a time. They are a mixture of .tivo and .mpg files. I found out the hard way that when there are too many files in the folder on my PC they will not load. These same 10 files showed up and were able to be loaded to my TIVOs just fine 6 weeks ago.
This was working just fine until the middle of March then it just stopped. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling 2.62. When I did that it would not recognize the IPs for either DVR. I finally just upgraded to 2.7 and the PC and DVRs see each other again. I just can't get the Now Playing list to populate. I am running Windows XP on a wireless Linksys network. I just purchased the key for TIVO Desktop Plus in February, but I don't seem to be able to get my money's worth. If this feature doesn't work or has so many bugs equated with it, why does TIVO push it as a viable viewing option?
This is all quite frustrating.
BTW, they each connect to TIVO daily and are all on version 9.3.2a-01-2-649. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
