    My firewall settings all say private.

    You can reset the settings if you go into the control panel -> uninstall programs.
    Select Tivo Desktop, you should be offered a selection that says 'repair'. Click it.

    In the Network and Sharing Center, the staus of the adapter (home, work or public) determines whether you need to set Private, Domain or Public.

    I did all of the above and the server still craps out after random times. I down graded to TD Version 2.8. So far, so good.

    ***Update*** Overnight, this method also failed - back to the drawing board.

    Don’t normally post, but I feel the pain of my fellow TiVo desktop users and want to post an answer I found in my testing: 3 computers, 1 vista 64-bit, 1 win7 32-bit and 1 win7 64-bit. The first 2 worked fine but my win7 64-bit had the error. I tried all the TiVo support suggestions and all the suggestions I could find doing a Google search of the error and in post I found here.
    I finally bit the bullet and did a clean install of my OS. Each time before I installed a program I ran a system backup to reverse any changes. After about 3-4 hours of getting everything the way I wanted, it came down to 1 program that caused the interference with the TiVo desktop server. Now this may not be the case for everyone but it may point you in the right direction.

    The program in my case was something I got from a service called Emusic. Their download manager, which also syncs downloads with iTunes, WMP or WinAmp was not only giving me the red X over my TiVo icon, but also "internal error has occurred" "PC server cannot be found by Bonjour for Windows" and the dreaded “Error 1359”. Removed program and all was good.

    Also it should be noted that ever since eMusic updated their download manager, not only did the Tivo Desktop Manager stop working, but a program called DVD Profiler stopped working too. The only solution was to delete eMusic and reinstall it as needed. Since I have another computer, I use eMusic on that one.

    Thank you! I've been an eMusic subscriber for years now, so their download manager is most likely the source of my problems as well. I'll try uninstalling it.

    This only affects the ones that downloaded the latest update to eMusic.

    I had been having the internal error issue as well until I found this thread - THANK YOU ALL! - re the eMusic downloader.

    Just in case this is still an issue for anybody, uninstalling version 5.0.5 does solve the TiVo server issue.

    I then found and downgraded to eMusic DLM version 4.1.4, and that did not break TiVo server and seems to work fine so far. You can get version 4.1.4 here.

    If you choose to get it, be warned it wants to install a bunch of other stuff, so be sure to untick those boxes!

    Make sure multicasting is enabled on your router.

    Tivo was working fine (under Windows 10) for a long time then a few days ago the serve just stopped and showed the red X over the Tivo Tray icon. I clicked to restart it and it came back for a few seconds and then turned off again. So I reinstalled with the "repair" option. Then it stayed on for the rest of the day. Then after Windows 10 rebooted today, it turned off again. So I ran another "repair" and it came back and is staying on at the moment. I don't know if its a Windows 10 update issue or some other conflict. I've eliminated Fire Wall issues and that's not it.
