Advertisements To give some background, I want to get a network attached storage device to store TiVo videos, but I haven't had time to do it yet, but meanwhile, my wife's TiVos have run out of space, and she's losing shows, and she's pressuring me to give her a way of offloading shows from her TiVos ASAP. As a short term solution, I installed pyTiVo on her Windows 7 laptop, which has a 500GB drive on it, so I figured it could store a fair amount of stuff if it needs to. It's connect to my wifi network wirelessly though, so I'm guessing that's going to cause some slow transfer speeds, but maybe that would be okay for the short term. The other thing is that all 4 Tivos in our house are connected wirelessly as well, because our 1988 house does not contain any kind of ethernet network. My plan though is to put some kind of network attached storage in my study next to my router, so at least that will have a wired connection. (I have no experience with networked attached storage by the way, so that will be a learning experience by itself - I hope it won't require expertise beyond what I possess.) Anyway, I successfully transferred a show from my TiVo Premier to my PC, but I can't seem to transfer from PC to a TiVo. I wanted to try such a transfer so that I could try to play the video on the other Tivo as a way of proving the transfer really worked. I first tried to transfer to my TiVoHD. I see the computer icon in Now Playing and the video. When I try to transfer, it says it's scheduled on the To Do List to transfer, and will transfer when the current transfers are finished. But I have no current transfer, so it won't transfer. I then went to my wife's two series 2 TiVos. I do see the computer icon on those two as well, and when I try to transfer it tells me it won't, and that I should look at the View History to see why it won't transfer. I look, and it says "Transfer Error". By the way, I can see in Windows Explorer that the show is stored on the PC with a .TiVo suffix, which I assume is correct. I wonder if the first transfer (to the PC) really worked, or if there's something wrong with the file. Is there a way to tell if the file is okay or not? Basically, I'm wondering how to troubleshoot my problems.
