    It sounds like your setup is correct, but the URL you need to be pointing to is https://{your external IP} (you also don't need the :80). It sounds like you're going to the regular http page, so at least you know your forwarding is working.

    Although, doing http://{your external IP}:443 should be the same as using https, so it is possible you've got other problems.

    edit: oops, didn't finish reading the thread. Glad you got it working.

    Nahh, that'll cause the browser to attempt to make an HTTP (not HTTPS) connection on port 443, since you can run an HTTP webserver on any port you like, including the standard HTTPS port of 443.

    You can also use TiVoPlayList to help access your TiVo remotely and download shows.

    Ive used this before and loved it on friends tivos etc... but I havent used this for a while... I know with the 540s the "overhead" is low and you have to put the system overhead int othe playlist to get a good calc on space left etc... anyway whats the overhead on a DT unit since your now playing with two tuners etc...

    Having trouble forwarding to any ports other than 80 and 443. I tried using 180 and 1443 for one TiVo and 280 and 2443 for the other and neither works. I have Comcast service, two Series 2 DVRs which have separately worked using 80 and 443 at different times, anda Linksys 4 port router BEFRS41. I am wondering if it is known if Comcast only allows the forwarding to port 80 and port 443.....
