    I just caved and upgraded both Tivis to the New Experience (couldn’t resist the auto Skip). I can stream shows between the two but I cannot figure out how to straight up transfer except online, which is WAY too annoying. Anyone know how? Thanks!

    Tivo online is the only way you can activate transfers between Tivos, which is limiting. You can't even transfer from a PC on TE4.

    Ugh that sucks! Who at TiVo thought that would be a good idea?

    I am with you, Kurs0010! I ended up reverting because I transfer more than I need auto skip. Maybe one day they will get wiser.

    I never bothered to downgrade to TE4, until I had more info when it came out.

    My guess is, TiVo thinks, "who needs to transfer between boxes when you simply can stream between them?" (Yep, I can think of people, too.)

    And I agree, it sucks (and it's 1 of only 3 reasons, now, why I'm still on TE3).
