Advertisements TIA for any help you can give. I run XP on my machine, and have tivo server and tytools installed. I have used these programs for 4 years now, and have never come across this issue before. Nothing has changed on my system, I have the same number of devices connected to my modem as always, I am virus/spyware/malware free. Two days ago, suddenly my tivo server has failed to fully transfer .avi files to my tivo. This is the error message I receive: Error: Buffer TY buffer timed out writing--Transcode failed to start or stalled Closed TY Buffer I have restarted my tivo I have restarted my computer and modem I have tried transferring files to my tivo that last month transferred just fine, but now they will not. My tytool communicates with the tivo just fine; I can transfer recorded shows from tivo to my pc with no problem. Help? Please keep in mind when responding that I am neither linux literate nor a networking god.....I have troubleshooted what would seem to me to be the obvious. I have not uninstalled tivo server (I'm running 0.4.4-a4.6). I can't find information on how to do that. I have downloaded from a link on this site the newest version of tivo server, should that be a fix for my issue. (after someone tells me how to uninstall the older version ) Thanks!
