    Wondering if anyone has seen this? I have seen lots of cases where people don't see anything on the other TiVo or one TiVo hangs during transfer, but not this.

    I can see shows on my TiVo HD from my Premiere and start a transfer. However, after about 60 seconds, transfer stops. The show is in my now playing list, but is 0 length.

    Try unchecking the video transfer options on, wait a bit, force a connection on both boxes, check the boxes again, wait, force another set of connections. Reboot both boxes, try again.

    I had this same problem about a year ago with my PXL. I think this is how I fixed it.

    Well, after a bunch of changes and reloads, I was finally able to get the correct names to show up (for a while all it would show was "DVR" for my named HDs, as well as some weird "_video" thing), but still couldn't transfer.

    I did know that signal was not great to 2 of the machines ("marginal"). I had a wireless extender arriving today and got it configured. The wirelss machines now have "good" or better signal, and by coincidence or not, I can now transfer.
