Mini doesn't see computer running TIVO desktop

My Mini connected to Roamio via ethernet doesn't see computer running TIVO desktop. TV directly connected to Roamio does see it. Is this expected or do I need to set something else up?

You can only transfer files to a full tivo but you can watch them after you tranfer n a mini.

My mini knows that I have two TiVo Desktops running on my network, but it also knows it can't do anything with them and marks them with a red circle with a slash through it. If your mini doesn't see your TiVo Desktop at all, you probably have a network problem, or perhaps a configuration problem with TiVo Desktop. But your mini can't play anything from your TiVo Desktop even if everything is working correctly.

I suppose it would be handy at times if the mini could download from the PC to the host but apparently that will never happen.

That's true. If you look at System Information, the item TiVoToGo is a,a,a,a on a host. A Mini has a,a,a,i and can not do downloads. You can kill the host's download ability under Manage on TiVo.com. It will then show a,a,a,i.

The Mini doesn't have any space to download recordings from TiVo Desktop. TiVo Desktop doesn't stream; since it's no longer supported there isn't much hope it ever will.
