TIVO Desktop doesn't see my DVRs

I have been using Tivo Desktop for awhile but about 6 months ago it stopped seeing my DVRs. I don't think I did anything with any of my settings. Today I spent most of the day on the telephone with Tivo and cleaned and reinstalled the software, changed from Bonjour to Beacon and back again. I still don't see anything. Any suggestions? I am not terribly sophisticated with computers or routers.

Try restarting your TiVo.

Original S1 (Recycle Heaven)
Series 2 (PLS, sold)
TiVo HD (XL, PLS, "652")
Juliet Basic (4XL, PLS)

From you PC using your WEB browser see if you can you access the DVR's built in web page.
user = tivo password = The DVR's MAK number.

Just started having the same problem. Sometimes I see the tivos and then I can't.
In the Access Ccontrol list it shows their names but no IP address.

I can see it using https to the ip address but doodly squat from Desktop.

Yes, I have the patch installed
I've reloaded Desktop and Bonjour

Try giving each of your Tivos a static IP address outside the range of your DHCP settings.
