    I have many video podcasts set to download. When does this happen? They have been set to download for days and they are not available yet. I can view the podcasts with "Watch it now" without a problem.

    Is there a place to view the download queue? (Premiere Tivo unit)

    Any advice apprecieated. thanks.

    Did you go to your TiVo account and enable downloads and transfers for your Tivo?
    I'm guessing that you can "watch it now" because that is streamed, but if you want downloads, you have to enable your Tivo to accept them.

    I have this same problem. I checked and I have downloads enabled on my tivo account. In the troubleshhoting on it says that the web providers do not always notify them so the season pass does not work but if Tivo gives a date can't they scan the content and update the notification?
    Or is there a better way like can I get the web videos to download to my computer and just transfer them from my computer? Maybe there is an easy way to download web videos to the "my tivo recordings" on my computer. Any ideas would be helpful.
