    I have three Tivos, an Edge, Premiere and HD. The Premiere was able to see the HD on the network but the Edge could not and therefore I could transfer from the HD to the Premiere but not the Edge.

    I read online that if I unchecked the sharing on my Tivo account, manually forced the HD to connect to Tivo, rechecked the sharing on my Tivo account and then manually forced the HD to connect to Tivo that it would make the HD available to the Edge, as well.

    However, after running these processes the only thing that has happened is the HD is now not available for transfers on either the Premiere or Edge. I am receiving a message that the HD is not on my Tivo account, when in fact I have verified the information is the same on my Tivo account and the HD (as well as how I used to be able to transfer between the Premiere and HD).

    Any suggestions as to how I can get the HD available again to the Premiere and hopefully to the Edge, too?

    Changing the Sharing permissions, require that all the Tivos on the account to connect to Tivo Service.

    Good to know. I will give that a try.

    I did the reset on both the Edge and Premiere. The Premiere and HD can communicate both ways again. The HD can see the shows on the Edge but the Edge doesn't know that the HD exists (only the Premiere). So essentially I am back where I was before trying changing the sharing permissions.

    Does the software versions on either the HD or Edge have anything to do with it or is there anything else that can be done?

    Since the Edge would be on v21 (Hydra) of the Tivo software, you would not be able to see the other Tivos from it. You must go to online.tivo.com to see and initiate transfers. Since the Series 3 is old tech, it is not included anymore.

    With Hydra, Tivo removed transfers from computer as well.

    Edge cannot be reverted to v20.

    That is disappointing. I don't understand why the HD can transfer from the Edge but the Edge can't transfer from the HD. I figure if anything it would be the other way around...

    The feature was removed since v21.
