    My Series 3 HD started going bad so I replaced it with a new drive from Weaknees a couple of days ago. It all seems to work well, though I had to re-authorize Netflix. Before the HD replacement, I copied as much material off the TiVo as I could to my PC running TiVo Desktop Plus; I figured I'd be able to at least watch that stuff on the TiVo with the new HD installed.

    Well, TiVo Desktop Plus can see the new recordings on the TiVo, but when I bring up the "Now Playing on [PC Name]" on the TiVo, it says "The Now Playing on [PC Name] has no recordings" -- This is not true.

    Can anyone tell me what might be going wrong that could prevent the TiVo from seeing the stuff on the PC that I know is there?

    Try something like this:

    1. Go to Tivo.com and login to your account;
    Under DVR Preferences, uncheck the TRANSFERS and DOWNLOADS.
    2. Make a Tivo Connection on your Tivo box.
    3. Wait a couple hours.
    4. Repeat from Step 1, CHECKing the boxes this time.
