Dan, I trust that you already know how highly I think of you - I've applauded your efforts to (at least attempt to) solve *EVERY* 'known-to-man ' TiVo transfer problem (TiVo-to-PC and PC-to-TiVo) with pyTiVo Desktop *MANY* times via either LIKEs, posts or PMs. (I pushed VERY hard to you @Dan203 , Kevin @moyekj , and William @wmcbrine via PMs.) But... you need to learn how to answer a DIRECT question with a DIRECT answer. As an 'Old Fart / Baby Boomer / Grandfather / yada, yada, yada ', I've learned, through MUCH experience, to avoid being vague / stating an ABSOLUTE when it could really be a MAYBE. Remember, *EVERYTHING* entered onto the internet is *FOREVER* - there are no DELETEs; no changing your answer in a future post; whatever you say RIGHT NOW is *FACT* / "Cast-in-Stone". OK. Lightening up... pyTiVo Desktop v1.6.1. is no 'magic elixir ' - whatever shows that were previously transferred TiVo-to-PC in TS / 'Fast' Format via 'whatever ' tool other than pyTiVo Desktop v1.6.1 will *NOT* now be able to be transferred back PC-to-TiVo 'glitch-free ' with pyTiVo Desktop v1.6.1, or any other tool. (Let's use @oldradio99's grandchildren's shows as an example - sorry folks, you'll have to SEARCH for that thread on your own - too late / too tired). IANAL, *BUT*, IMHO you HAVE to be more explicit in your statements. Otherwise 'someone ' is most certainly going to misinterpret 'what you said from what you meant to say '.
