    I have a tivo series 2, tivo desktop can see "now playing list" from the dvr, however, my cpu shows up intermitantly on "now playing list" on dvr and when the icon for my cpu does appear, there are no transfers showing.
    Any help would be welcomed

    Start by giving everything on your home network that doesn't have to leave home and access other networks a fixed IP address instead of doing DHCP.

    Can't hurt, might help.

    And call it a computer (the CPU-Central Processing Unit-is the chip inside the computer that plugs into the motherboard).

    Another thing to consider. If you are currently using Bonjour for the discovery protocol, try using TiVo Beacon instead.

    Settings are in TiVo Server Properties under the Network tab.

    Also, make sure your Media Access Key is correct in the Tivo Desktop settings.
