    To define push vs. pull, it depends on which side the transfer initialized.

    (push) PC -> Tivo (pull)

    (pull) PC <- Tivo (push)

    So, to get a video onto Tivo, you have to go to the Tivo and select the file and transfer. You cannot select from the PC. (Hydra, v21, disabled this feature)

    Can the Tivo app be used? There's also Slingbox

    Yes, and it's unlikely to ever come back. TiVo has no desire to support this functionality any more, which is why it doesn’t even exist in Hydra.

    But again, note that this does not mean that you can't transfer shows from your PC to your TiVo box (under TE3); it just means, to do so, you need to use your TiVo box to pull the shows from your PC, and not use your PC to push them to your TiVo box.

    I've mostly given up putting my videos back on the TiVo.

    I do it occasionally but I've set up a Plex server in my home and usually just stream the video's I've copied from my TiVo from there to a Roku Plex client (The TiVo Plex client, at least on any TiVo older than the Bolt, isn't worth using).

    This is sad, because the control you have while watching a video recorded on your TiVo is orders of magnitude better than any streaming I've ever encountered.
    You have better pause, fast forward and reverse.
    And these controls don't exist at all for streaming AFAIK:
    • slow motion
    • frame advance (and rewind)
    • instant 8 second rewind (including multiple times)
    • instant 30 second advance (including multiple times)
    • advance to the next 15 minute mark
    • rewind to the previous 15 minute mark
    I really miss that control when watching Netflix or other streaming sites. :-(

    Thanks for that info....
    I guess I'm just stuck with playing my .mp4s from my USB ext drive plugged into my TVs. I can do "cast to device" from laptop also. But it's rather cumbersome to get going at times.
    And
    I've thought about setting up a streaming server and even have a ASUS honking powerful router that will do it.
    Maybe I'll do that someday.
    Thanks again!

    This is one of the major reasons I'll resist "downgrading" to TE4 from TE3 until I have absolutely not choice.

    Why not just "upgrade" to TE3 and avoid those problems?

    So, why not move to TE3 and not lose any those features?

    I think you missed where I said I do pull shows down to my TiVo occasionally. :) Meaning I am still running TE3 (I can't stand the Hydra TE4 interface).

    I was mostly just pointing out the many ways that streaming (be it Netflix, Amazon whatever) is not nearly as good an experience as playing a local recording on your TiVo.

    Netflix have a different way to REW and FF, use the Left and Right arrow while playing. Then Select to continue.

    Yes, but it's not as quick to respond. And on my TiVo I use the jump back 8 seconds a lot and frequently over and over as I try to catch some words or detail. and I frequently jump back 16 or 24 seconds, and it's basically instant, whereas even going back 10 seconds on Netflix makes it do a (sorta quick) reloading, and usually you can't go back as little as 8 seconds. Etc.

    Can someone please help me.
    Please see my original thread to see what I've already done:
    Noob: Transferring recordings and upgrading HDD


    I have two TIVOS: Masterbedroom (OTA) and Man Cave (Digital Cable).

    PyTIVO and KTMMG both see the two DVRs. But only the Master Bedroom shows will populate??

    KTTMGsay this about my Man Cave DVR:

    That is the 3rd IP Address you've listed and that's a Public IP...

    No it's not. 172.x.x.x is a private IP range.

    Try this version...

    https://pytivodesktop.com/php/download.php?platform=win&version=1.6.24

    it has a minor fix specifically for that non-populating issue

    OK...but 2 days ago it was 192.168.1.3 and yesterday it was 192.168.1.30.

    KMTTG has a tendency to keep phantom units. If you try to search them, there will be errors returned.

    So, my point was that she ought to pin down what her IP is for that unit.
