Advertisements It looks like Tivo Desktop 2.5 is partially broken when the computer has multiple network adapters. If you have multiple network adapters in your computer (which you do if you have firewire ports or VMware installed) you have to make a choice in Tivo Server Properties to pick which adapter or NIC you want the Tivo software to bind to. This worked fine in 2.4a and previous versions, but in 2.5 the choice becomes non-persistent. If you change the selected adapter away from the one the Tivo Desktop Installer program selected, your choice may be lost on your next reboot, forcing you to reconfigure this option every time you restart your computer. This may have something to do with the HKLM\Software\Tivo\Desktop\Beacon\SelectedAdapter registry key getting erased when TivoBeacon.exe starts up. I've reported this to Tivo, but they say the engineering team is currently "backlogged" as one of them is out. In the meantime I wil downgrade to 2.4a to avoid this, although I lose the nifty Itunes integration.
