I'm trying to get help with a weird behavior I'm seeing with multi-room viewing. I have 3 Tivos (TivoHD, Tivo Premiere, and Tivo Premiere XL). All 3 have video downloads and transfers allowed on my account. All 3 of the Tivos can each "see" the other 2 and all of the content on the other 2. So far, so good.
However, I'm unable to transfer programs from the Premiere XL (which happens to be my main Tivo unit) to any of the other 2. Most (but not all)shows show up as protected content (with red indicator next to program name). However, both of the other 2 units have very few (if any) programs marked as protected content.
I could understand if things were marked as protected in a consistent manner. However, there have been times where I've recorded the same show/channel on 2 different Tivos (ex. Premiere XL and Premiere). I'm able to transfer the program from the Premiere to the TivoHD OK - however, the same program/channel from the Premiere XL is marked as protected. It's almost as if content is being protected at a per-Tivo level.
I have Comcast service in the South Jersey area. All 3 units have multi-stream cablecards installed.
Any ideas ?
