Okay, so just so i am understanding correctly here......
You have some video files which are currently on your computer and you wish to copy these files over onto your Tivo, correct?
Assuming that is the case...... the video files on your PC will not show up in your "now playing" list until AFTER they are already successfully copied onto your Tivo.
When you first install the Tivo desktop application on your computer, it should create a new folder called "My Tivo Recordings"....... or something like that. If you are unsure of the name of this folder or where it is located, you can easily find this information. At the bottom of the Tivo desktop app there is a link which says "where is this folder." You can click on that.
You will need to copy your video files into this folder.
Then, when you go into your "Now Playing" list on your Tivo, it should show you the computer that has these files on it. You want to click on that computer and then it should show you the list of files. You should be able to click on each individual file and it should give you the option to copy the files over onto your Tivo.
