    I'm on zippered 6.2a and everything works except HMO.
    No servers show up. This just started happening. I can ping the computer from the tivo and vice versa.
    I don't know where to begin troubleshooting this.
    Any ideas?
    Tivoserver works, so I know the MRV portion is working.

    Thanks in advance folks.

    Newer versions of tivodesktop don't like directivos. Here's a copy of ver 2.1 for windoze. Works fine for me. Don't have a mac so I don't bout all that.

    I had similar problems with a Tivo Series2 SA. Tivo could see the PC desktop and could even download from the PC to Tivo. Rebooted the Tivo and the problem disappeared.

    How did you get it working? What Mac model and OSX version are you using? I've tried getting JavaHMO working on my Macs in the past - without success.

    Java is a finicky beast. There are three distinct versions widely in use - 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6 (also referred to as Java 4, 5 and 6). They are not 100% compatible.

    I once had the joy of dealing with some java applet based remote admin systems for servers. One brand required 1.4, and would not work with 1.5. Another brand worked with 1.5, and not with 1.4. I had to use two different systems to access them.

    I have a similar problem with 1.6. Some backup software I manage does not work at all with 1.6 - yet their updater is very insistent on updating to it...
