    I've transferred a lot of shows from TiVo to my PC. On my PC, I've put them into folders. However, when I view them from Tivo (on my TV), I can't see these folders. I guess that all the shows on my PC are considered in my 'network' folder. The folders on my PC are really subfolders as far as TiVo is concerned. Any idea how I can solve this so that I can see my shows in folders on my TV?

    You may want to check the level of your folders. In my experience all links to other folders placed in the primary Tivo Recordings folder must be at the same level. Meaning you cannot have folders inside the folders linked into the Tivo Recordings folder. Also I had to restart the Tivo Desktop after placing folder links in the Tivo Recordings folder before the Tivo was able to recognize the folders and display the video files.

    As of TiVo Desktop 2.4, I think, you can use subfolders up to two levels deep in your Recordings folder. However, those folders will not be displayed on the TiVo.
