    TiVoToGo not working definitely has nothing to do with HME not being enabled. Greg's probably on the right track as to why it's not working.

    If you have access to SSH to a linux box or something within your network, you can try telnetting to port 80 on the TiVo's IP address, so see if it's running its web server. You can also ping the IP address to see if it's even up.

    Failing that, you can use TCO to schedule a recording, just to ensure that the TiVo is up and running.

    I have 3 tivos and a WRT54G Linksys router. I have 180 and 1443 forwarded to one tivo and 280 and 2443 to the 2nd... However when I go to hxxps://<externalip>:2443 I get nothing at all... Does anyone know what went wrong?
    I cannnot post links yet... thus the hxxp
    However if I have 80 and 443 forwarded to a tivo it will work. Is there someway to get the router to change in incoming port 1443 to forward to the tivo ip in the form of 443 so the tivo will recognize it?

    I've had this same problem. I used No-IP.com (which I would highly recommend) and have successfully set-up access to one of my TiVos (using the default ports). However, when I try to forward customized ports like this to my other one it doesn't work. I'm sure it is either my router or my own ineptitude (probably the latter) causing the problems.

    If you are wanting to access your shows and are finding the web interface too slow, I have another idea. Download/install/set-up a free FTP server like Guild FTPd (www.guildftpd.com), and get hooked up with a service like No-IP.com (also free). Share your TiVo Recordings folder on the FTP server. Then you can FTP into your computer and access already transferred programs via FTP. Should run as fast, if not faster, than the direct web method as TiVo caps the speed of transfers right now. You should only be limited by your broadband capacity/speed.

    This is not the ideal method, I know, and it takes more effort to get set-up. You also have to transfer the program twice (although you could set-up Galleon/TiVo Desktop to automatically transfer shows to your computer for you while you are away/asleep). It's the best solution for me, however, as it seems to run faster in my workplace.

    Hope you get everything working!

    Is TiVo Desktop installed required for WMP to properly playback a .tivo file that has been downloaded via the tivo server outside of the home network?

    If it is still a .tivo file, then yes.

    The port forwarding does work with my Router with a third Party firmware.
    Firmware has these options under (Application & Gaming) Port Forwarding.

    PHP:
    Name          Port In       DestIP Address     Port Out      Protocol
    TiVo 1           180            192.168.1.5          80            TCP
    TiVo 1          1443            192.168.1.5         443            TCP
    TiVo 2           280            192.168.1.6          80            TCP
    TiVo 2          2443            192.168.1.6         443            TCP

    Which third party software? I have Sveasoft's Alchemy for my WRT54G, but it won't let me do that. :(

    Is it Sveasoft's latest version; Talisman?

    That's not totally true. You can just install the TiVoToGoPlaybackFilter separately. You of course have to enter your MAK during setup and also still have to enter your playback password when launching a file, but you don't need the whole TiVo Desktop application installed.

    Edit to add link to original post: .TiVo Playback Without TiVo Desktop

    Interesting. You still need a playback password doing it this way? The later version of TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll doesn't require it anymore. (At least it doesn't when Desktop 2.1 or 2.2 are installed). :confused:

    I just tried replacing the .dll that came with the original installer with the one that came with the latest version of Desktop and I wasn't promted for the password anymore. Thanks for the idea...I should have noticed that a long time ago!

    Yes, Sveasoft (Talisman v1.11.devsnapshot.20060111) on a WRT54G v 2.0

    Sorry to drag up an old thread guys (for my first post) but I'm a little late to the game as far as the tivo server goes, just trying to get all set up for accessing it from my work computer. I've forwarded port 443, and am able to log in and view my now playing list. However, when I try to download either via left or right click it just hangs and never starts downloading. If I try this from in my network it works fine.. Any ideas guys?

    The actual downloads occur over port 80. Thus, you need to forward port 80 as well.

    Many ISP's, such as mine, block port 80 inbound... If yours is one of them, you'll need to forward a different port to port 80 of the Tivo (if your router even has the ability to do this). Also, instead of just being able to click on the download links, you'll have to right-click and copy the link location, paste it into your browser's address bar, and change the port manually.

    Unhacked Linksys routers with default firmware (usually) strangely lack Port Address Translation (Mapping public IP port xyz to internal device, different port, such as TiVo, port 80)

    Hopefully you don't own a Linksys router, or if you do - you CAN hack your router :)

    I put DD-WRT firmware on my Linksys router to do just the thing you're looking to do. I was actually able to get to one Tivo without port redirection (my isp did not block 80 inbound), and that worked fine for a while until I got a second Tivo. In order to access both I had to set up a second set of external ports and the supplied firmware (as ashu mentioned) didn't allow it.

    I got one tivo to port forward, but i cant get another.

    I have a netgear router.

    Also, how does a service like DynDNS.com know that your ip address has changed?

    Don't you need a computer always on inside the network with some sort of DNS updater running?

    I'd love it if my tivo could notify DynDNS of the new IP since they are on all the time.

    or am I mistaken about the process?

    TIA.

    A program running on a computer, or even your router (if it supports it) can update your dyndns entry as needed.

    Look for Port Forwarding or 'Application Setup' or something similar in the Netgear options - there should be something.

    Thanks Ashu. I actually figured it out. Pretty cool to finally be able to see my tivo from anywhere. Should had done this along time ago but never got that dyndns thing up.

    I guess one tivo for now is good enough. (man I wish I had a lifetimed dual tuner)

    Here I am, dredging up this old post... but IT SOUNDS SO COOL IF I CAN GET IT TO WORK! (Sorry for shouting, I am getting excited!)

    So I tried this, and am having trouble. I am using an Airlink wireless G router. I have two Tivos on my network. I am trying to get it to work with just one, the hard-wired one (the other is wirelss) just to get it working.

    I set the "Application/Gaming" section of the router to:
    80 to 80 / protocol = TCP / IP=Tivo's IP / Enabled=Yes
    443 to 443 / same as above

    When I go to myIP:80/, I get a Tivo-looking page that says congrats, you've hooked you tivo up to a network, now you can enjoy xyz features, blah blah blah. But no links on the page, nothing like a now playing list. Nada.

    When I go to myIP:443/ I get a "your connection was reset" error. Does this mean my ISP is blocking something and I am out of luck?

    I can screen capture the pages if it would help, but don't know which to capture.

    Also, if I need to forward a different port to tivo's port 80, how do I do that? In the "Applilcations/Gaming" section of my router, I have these "tabs" or options:
    Port range Forwarding
    Port Range Triggering
    DMZ (I have NO idea what this is)

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated, as Tivo rocks, and accessing my Tivo from work when the boss is away would rock even more!
