    I have 3TB of .tivo shows on an External Hard Drive.

    My computer caught a virus, and the TIVO DESKTOP app was trashed.

    It is no longer available.

    How can I watch these show ? Or transfer them to a TiVo ?

    But, it *IS* available. And the LINK has been posted on TCF several times - try a SEARCH. ;)

    You can also try out pyTiVo Desktop by @Dan203 - so simple to install (compared to @wmcbrine 's original pyTiVo) that it could be called "pyTiVo for Dummies ". :D If it existed at the time I was installing @wmcbrine 's original pyTiVo, I would have installed it instead, hands down. :handok:

    Thanks !

    It's not real easy to install, though.

    I'm still trying figure it out.

    I should have noted I am running windows 10.

    Thanks !

    I searched all over the TiVo Web Site, and Googled for it, too.

    I searched this Forum as well, but got so many hits and none of them seemed to have this download.

    I guess I missed any that did.
