    Hello All:

    I am having some issues when trying to transfer a movie from my PC to the Tivo unit. I have a Series 2 and running Desktop 2.8 on my PC.

    If I use the BONJOUR I am unable to see the folders I have selected on my PC and these do not show up on the Tivo. If I switch to BEACON on the DESKTOP software, I then see the folders on my Tivo and I can see the movies within those folders.

    When I select a movie, I am given the option to START THE TRANSFER and after a min or two, I get the standard error message;

    "There was a problem transferring the requested program to this DVR. To view which programs won't be transferred and why....BLAH BLAH BLAH..."

    Can someone give me some clues as to what to try next and how to resolve this issue....I am out of ideas....

    I don't have any experience with TiVo Desktop.

    Have you considered using PyTiVo instead? It's widely discussed in this forum.
