Are all of those videos actually in the My TiVo Recordings folder?
Maybe if you organized them into sub-folders it would help.
I move shows out of the MTR folder to other drives and put shortcuts to those drives in the MTR folder, and we're talking about well over 10 TB.
I have had the problem in the past of having a shortcut in the MTR folder but the drive not being available and that kept Desktop from opening until I removed the shortcut.
Maybe you have some sort of phantom in your MTR folder.
Find your cache folder
(Services, TiVo Server Properties, Performance)
and delete all the files in it and let it rebuild it.
