    If I use https:// I get a Sign In user name and password popup. Not sure what username and password it's asking for. PC, TiVo, Network???

    Ahh, Thanks. OK, now I'm getting my "Now Playing" list. Most of the programs are "Protected". The ones that aren't have a "Download" link but if I click on it, it says
    <h2>Access Forbidden</h2>
    feature not enabled

    I'm doing a TE3 download from the NPL with problems right now. Only issues are the warnings and long twice. Next I'll try from a TE4 TiVo.

    No problem on TE4 box. Note: both boxes have "Network Remote Control" set to [Not Allowed].

    Check the settings on that TiVo logged into your account at tivo.com (under be Device Preferences).

    Only the Video Sharing matters. Uncheck it and you turn your TiVo into a Mini. :)

    Thanks.
    OK, did that. Now how do I transfer video from my TiVo to my PC?

    After forcing a service connection, you should be able to download the non-copy protected shows and after you verify that's working you should be able to use pyTiVo Desktop to download shows as well.

    I believe you need both, Video sharing and downloading. I think sharing is between Tivos while downloading is to PC.

    Amazon used to provide downloading programs to your TiVo; I think that is what that flag was for. Someone who cares more than I could easily try it. It is unchecked for all my devices and I have no problem downloading unprotected shows to my PC with just "Video Sharing" set.

    You can also experiment... Uncheck download, force a Tivo connect, then try to download some show.
