    I'm gonna go ahead and move that to the Advanced Feature folder and suggest you put it on hold.

    If you created a share then it should show on your TiVo at the very bottom of "All" or in the "Devices" list. However keep in kind that TiVo removed this functionality from the new TE4/Hydra UI. It only works if you have the old TE3 UI on your TiVo.

    How can I tell if I have the TE/Hydra UI or TE3 UI? You mentioned something about a share......?

    Look on the Tivo, Settings, then find System Information. Look for the like for Tivo software version (or close to it) if you see 20.7.xxx its TE3 and 21.xxx is TE4.

    This has to do with getting shows from computer (PC) to the Tivo. This does not pertain to your issue as you are just trying to view the shows on WMP.

    As previously mentioned, you may need to download the MPEG codec and launch it. Its just a small file that adds some things to WMP that can play the type of video. As the part about audio but no video, In Tivo Desktop, make sure "Faster downloads" is enabled, then re-download your shows. You can delete the old one beforehand.

    TE4/Hydra is mostly gray/black and looks like this...
