    I'm having a LOT of trouble getting the Beacon API to work consistently with my TiVo server (J River Media Center, not TiVo Desktop). Currently (using the API from the SDK and the Beacon from TiVo Desktop 2.2), it works some of the time, but not consistently.
    Example: I restarted my server, and tried to connect from the TiVo. It briefly displayed the "Gateley's Music on ..." and "Gateley's Pictures on ..." messages, then they disappeared (and there was no IP address there either). I exited "Music Pictures & More" and went back in, and the IP address was there, but it wouldn't connect. A few minutes later, I tried again, and this time it worked. There was nothing happening on the server during this time (no restarts, no changes at all).

    Any ideas? Anyone else using the Beacon API/SDK?
