The USB3 was the problem.....Thank goodness for your suggestion I wouldn't had thought about that.
I have an old 11" Macbook Air that has USB2.......now coping as I type this.
I had to connect a external cd/dvd writer to the MB Air and connect the external drives to a usb hub (on a 23" Apple Cinema Display. I'll wait and see what happens....but so far looks good.
Started this process at 7:50am (I did a Clear and Delete on the Tivo) so NO shows recorded. Hopefully the time it takes will be faster.
