    Anyone try the TiVoDecode Manager for Mac to see if it works with the S3's? I'm going to try it tonight when I go home but thought someone might have beaten me to it already.

    I had to reboot my Tivo in order to make it show up in the DVR list in TiVo Transfer. Unfortunately, every one of my HD recordings has a "No" icon next to it, so I cannot seem to transfer any HD content. For that matter, I think I have that icon next to every show that was recorded on a digital channel. Only the analog recordings seem to be copyable... hmm...

    Does anyone know how to transfer from PC to TiVoHD? I got the update and now see my other DVRs in my TiVoHD Now Playing list but I don't see the little PC icon that I see on my other Series2. Is there a way to pull files from my "TiVo Recordings" folder on my PC to my TiVoHD?

    It works for me. the HD shows are transfered nicely between my PC and my 5 boxes. The DD5.1 and signal is completely intact. I do remember having to enter the media access key in the TiVo Desktop software for it to work properly with the boxes.

    I got the message this morning, however my Tivos are still running 9.1. Hopefully the get updated tonight with the 9.2 software so I can start to stream some movies I have.

    I'm trying to stream an xvid or divx file from my computer to my TivoHD but it doesn't seem to be working. This is what I have done so far.

    1) I moved the video to the My Tivo Recordings folder on my computer.
    2) I went on tivo to look for my computer but there's no link to it.

    I know the connection between the two is fine since I can listen to music off my computer.

    This is where I'm stuck.

    Tivo doesn't work that way.
    It wants to see an MPEG file.
    I suggest Googling "PyTiVo" and installing that on your pc.

    Or you have to buy the optional $25 Tivo Desktop Plus key. This will make compatible non-mpeg2 files visible in Tivo Desktop and it will transcode them to mpeg2 on the fly before transferring to your Tivo from your PC. This is all covered in the S3/THD MRV/TTG/TTCB FAQ sticky thread in this forum.

    Thanks... rebooting the S3 fixed the problem. I now see the S3 on my mac.

    I appreciate the advice!

    I have a wired network, and started a transfer, it started, then stopped at 381MB of 1,330MB. It said the transfer was interrupted, and it will keep trying. It didn't give any reason.

    When it was transfering, it was very slow.

    Many HD programs won't transfer off my S3.
    I try to transfer but they just sit at 0k of xxGB.
    This is annoying.

    As I was glancing thru the message about TTG on the S3 this morning, I caught something in it about ipod just as I deleted it.

    Did anyone catch what it said?

    I have a S3 and S2 DT My Tivos can see each other, but since the update (9.2j) my computer cannot see either of my Tivos. I am ecstatic that I can now transfer between Tivos, but would like the option with computer as well.
    My Tivos can access my pictures and music on my computer.
    Tried forcing a connection, no luck
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Tivo desktop, but same thing.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    what's up all,
    So in order for me to burn a recording to a DVD I have to get the "TTG plus"? My kid's shows take up half my drive (I know I have to expand the HDD) so I would like to start burnning them to DVDs and getting them off my Tivo.

    Well, more annoying problems.
    If I try to play back HD Content recorded on a S3 with Roxio Toast 8.0.1, it plays like Fast Forward.
    If I export to iPod or PSP, the speed is normal but the audio is distorted.
    Anybody else having these problems?
    Plays OK on TiVo.

    My series 3 shows my series 2 but says "DVR has no recordings"

    Yes it does!!

    I was transferring fine when I had 2 series 2 machines. What can I do to fix it?? :confused:

    Yes, that's how I've transferred both SD and HD programs successfully to my Mac G5. Then I use iSquint to convert the programs for iPod/iTunes playback. Only the HD programs from NBC don't sync the audio properly.

    That was one good thing about the resetting of the 30 second skip in previous versions. It was a marker for reboots.

    When I go to the Tivo Listing Guide at their site it shows me the wrong day and times. It also doesn't show me HBO or Showtime or any HD channels. Even some of the shows are wrong for the time slots.
