    Found thread on this but from 2009 and rebooting didn't clear.

    I first thought it was a pyTivo problem - I had 14 1-2 hour programs in the queue but nothing would download. Then went to TVIO (Bolt) via web IP got program list but when tried to download one says "Server Busy - too many transfers in progress." I have rebooted TIVO and PC still same error.

    The only old suggestion left was disconnect TIVO for six hours and may clear. I am doing that now but have no idea if will work - or must be another easy to stop transfers in progress which are not transferring!

    That is a TiVo error. Usually a reboot will fix it. Not sure what the 6 hours would do. If it's been unplugged for more than a few minutes then you're fine, plug it back in and try again.

    You have set too many to transfer and its clogging up the ToDo list. You can pretty much set a few to transfer at a time. Clear out the clogged transfers off the ToDo list, and reboot.
