    I am having very similar problem as another user in regards to watching video from my pc on my tivo. the other user used mac, i use windows.

    i get this message: There was a problem transferring the requested program to this DVR. To view which programs won't be transferred and why, go to TiVo Central and select "Pick Programs to Record"-"To Do List"-"View Recording History".

    when i go to the "to do list" it says that it can't transfer the video because the video is too large or corrupt. i converted the movie to .wmv format.

    any help will be appreciated...thanks in advance

    The file plays fine on your PC?
    I would think that the problem lies in your conversion to .wmp
