    I tried PyTivo. Using Windows 7. Inserted media access code, and selected folder. But what next?

    If your Tivo is running TE4 (v21, black background Tivo menus), then it will not happen.
    If its running TE3 (v20, Blue background Tivo menus), then you should be able to go to the bottom of your shows list and see your computer.

    I've had PyTivo not "show up" after re-configuring it (i.e. adding a folder) until I reboot my computer. Assuming you're on TE3 (press the Tivo button, it should say "TiVo Central" at the top) - reboot your PC, wait 10-15 minutes and check the "Devices" section of My Shows - the PC should show up there. Then, you can start the transfer just like any other MRV program.
