    I have 2 TivoHD's. Both with Wireless adapters on the same network.
    Typically they work fine. (slow but fine) Bedroom & living Room.
    I noticed recently my Living Room unit will not show my bedroom DVR in the now playing list. If I go into bedroom Tivo it shows my living room unit though.

    Any ideas why one tivo is not seeing the other?

    Force a restart on the offending Tivo. If that doesn't do it, then force a restart on the other one. I always have that issue with my S3HD whenever I introduce a new member of the family. It doesn't like to play nice without special attention. Not sure why they would quit when they were working before but the restarts usually do it.

    If I restart the Living Room Tivo it does cause the Bedroom Tivo to appear in the Now Playing list. But it seems to disappear within a fairly quick period of time. (day or so) Goign to try and time it this time..

    I have the same problem from time to time. I have found several ways to correct the problem:force one or all tivos to connect to tivo network server, and/or restart/ reboot your tivos.

    If you haven't already, give both TiVos (and everything else on your network that doesn't travel) a fixed IP address.

    Can't hurt, might help.
