    I see people mentioning the transfer speed of shows from their computer to TiVo, or shows between TiVos. How do I see this? I would like to see what kind of transfer rates I am getting between TiVos right now and monitor it as a switch between wirless and wired connections. Thanks!

    From the TiVo: Settings & Messages > Settings > Network & Phone > View network diagnostics > View transfer history

    If you use pyTivo, it will also report its transfer rate, in the console output or log.

    BTW, I just now noticed that the Transfer History sub-menu is broken, by TiVo standards -- it doesn't remember where you were.

    I only saw that option on my S3 and my Premiere. The S2 didn't seem to have an equivalent check.

    Yeah, I don't think it's on the S2.

    Same question... but specific to the BOLT's UI. The BOLT seems to have lost or relocated the "View network diagnostics" option...

    I'm wondering if it was just a way to remove as many SD menus as possible, to lighten the load for converting to HD. (But am holding out hope that it's simply been moved as part of the overall menu reorganization.)

    Its working on my Bolt.

    Go to network settings, then view network diagnostics, then view transfer history.

    Thanks. I took that snapshot shortly after the BOLT's release, so perhaps the network diagnostics screen was added back, later.
