    Re TTG for the S3, I have the same problem, although it got up to retrieving about 90 recordings before the error message. (FYI, MRV is working fine on my S3 and 2 S2's. TTG works on the 2 S2's only.).


    Strange, but I just gave it a third try and the third try was the charm! All 127 recordings on the S3 are appearing on my TiVo Desktop. So I don't know is this is a bug that corrects itself or will be a sporadic future issue...

    Happens with my S3 and THD also even with 9.2J on both units.

    Maybe they haven't goofed up.

    Someone else in a Comcast system reported (in this post) that he complained to his cable provider and local franchising authority that nearly everything was being set Copy One Generation and got action wherein the provider stopped setting things to Copy One Generation except where the content provider specifically requested it. Supposedly Comcast made this their policy nationwide. You may be reaping the benefits :).

    There is only one version of Tivo Desktop, but some features aren't activated until you enter your key.

    Did you choose Help -> Upgrade to Tivo Plus?

    You've got to do that to activate the Plus features.

    I'm surprised those shows are available for transfer. Only OTA stuff is available for me, the Discovery and HDNET recordings I had on there can not be transfered.

    I had the same issue, and after trying a few times I was able to see all my recordings. I just started transferring 2 hours' worth of hd content, and the transfer status claims another 2.75 hours to finish.

    That's one benefit of Verizon FiOS, I suppose.

    Anyone else not getting their Series 3 to show up in either TiVo Desktop or Tivo Transfer? I have transfers enabled in my account, on a local wifi network, can't find anything. No firewalls either.

    Will it be possible to watch Itune videos that I purchase on Tivo?

    Thanks

    Yeah, TTG and MRV definitely alter the eSata equation.

    Hard work is paying off as I am watching a Lord of the Rings DVD RIP via the S3 with the anamorphic video perfectly output by the S3 and the DD5.1 sound coming beautifully through the sound system. This is what I spent so much time preparing for. :D

    I just got around to testing out pyTivo on my THD.

    I just changed a few setting.

    video_br=8Mi
    width=1440
    height=720

    It was transferring slower than real time but the tivo was outputting 720p when set to native.
    And it looked much nicer than on my S2.

    Do both TiVo's need to be on the same billing account for MRV to work? I can see my brother-in-laws S3 in my Now Playing list, but it is listed as just "DVR". When I select it I get a screen saying "DVR: Remote Now Playing", but there is nothing listed. I have a,a,a listed in system info and the name of the DVR finally shows up.

    As an old S1 owner, and new S3 owner, I've known nothing of Tivo Desktop/TTB/TTCB but yesterday I DL'ed TTG and everything works! Kinda amazing--I can off-load programs to my home network and transfer them back to Tivo when I want. :up:

    I expect you S2 guys who have grown to expect this functionality are relieved it is here--I am just thrilled to get features I never knew-or-expected.

    Thanks Tivo!!! :cool:

    I tried to use ComeBack with some old mpegs I had Tivo-formatted from back in my S2 days. They worked just fine on my S3!

    Nice, it figures hey, I dont even have 2 Tv's in my house any longer and have offed all my s2 units. I get the ability to do anything with any of my content and have no use for it :( I suppose I could still pull content off and place it on my server for future use ;)
