Pending transfer message when attempting to watch PC video on tivo

I am trying to watch a video on my Tivo HD or Roamio Plus that's in my Now Playing list on my PC.

Each time I select it, and ask to transfer it to either Tivo it starts to transfer. On the HD I see the blue light turn on. Then it says some message like "Video will transfer when the pending transfer is finished." There is no pending transfer that I can see. I've rebooted the Tivo and stopped and restarted the desktop server. Etc.

Any suggestions for what to do?

This condition sometimes clears after 15 or 30 minutes. Also try forcing a connection to Tivo.

Sometimes the TivoHD gets in a state where it thinks it has something already transferring when it does not, even though it does not show up in the ToDo List.
Usually a hard reboot (pull the plug, wait 30 seconds, plug back in) of the Tivo will fix it.

If that doesn't work, then we might need more info...
  • Using free or plus version of TiVo Desktop? PyTivo?
  • File format of the video(s) your trying to transfer (.tivo, .mpg, etc.)?
  • Do you have any other videos in the PC folder?
  • Does this happen with other videos or just the one?

If nothing else helps, try this.

Delete any pending transfers that you can see.
Unplug the power cord for at least 30 seconds.
While it's down disconnect it from the network.
Boot it back up and let it sit for at least 1 hour.
Reconnect it to the network and force a daily call.

That should clear out any "ghost" transfers.
