    Maybe I missed it but is MRV working on anyone elses S3 with the 9.2 update. I just checked this morning before I headed out to work since it was restart pending last night. I noticed that my TiVo Desktop box and my other two S2DTs were showing up on the family room S3's now playing list. I was able to start a transfer from one of the S2DT's to it. Haven't tried anything FROM the S3 and my other S3 in the rec room isn't showing up.

    This is with 9.2J1-01-2-648 and my status is a,a,a now.

    If I'm smeeking, sorry. Didn't see it mentioned here or see an obvious separate thread on it and I figured it would be shouted from the roof tops by now...? :confused:

    I got 9.2 yesterday, and my status is still i,i,i. So either TiVo is starting a slow rollout of MRV or you got lucky.

    edit: I just noticed on TiVo.com that I can now set the enable transfers preference for my S3. So I enabled it, but the web site says it could take 24 hours for the change to take effect. I guess I'll know tomorrow if it's enabled.

    I think you are on to something. Only one of my S3's has gotten the 9.2 update so far, but I am betting the others will be getting it soon.

    I went to manage my account and ALL my units say "transfers allowed". Further, the on/off checkbox is working on the preference page. Whoohoo!

    Absolutely.
    That was the context of my question: What makes you think that the hours-long version update didn't change the data structure of the data files themselves?

    Wow... pretty neat. I checked the checkbox too! Isn't it amazing how jazzed we all get about checking a checkbox on a webpage? :D

    I also just got 9.2J.

    OK, confirmed. After updating my info at the TiVo web site and doing a couple of forced connections, my TiVo MRV status now says a,a,a. I still can't do anything though, as the TiVo reports my Media Access Key is temporarily unavailble (although it is listed on the TiVo web site).

    I have been able to get my computer to show up in the Now Playing list via TiVo Desktop, and that is new.

    Baby steps I guess.

    MRV just started working on my Tivo Series 3 and Tivo Series 2 this morning. My Tivo Series 3 was updated to 9.2.J1 last night and I forced a connection on my Series 2 so I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not. On the Now Playing List the DVR name for my Series 2 appears at the bottom of the list. You can select it and see all the content on the other Tivo. You can then select a show and transfer it. I tried it with a show that was on my Series 2 and it worked fine. I then went upstairs and check my Series 2 and it can also see my Series 3 (although the name just says DVR until Tivo fixes the Series 3 names) I was unable to test a transfer from my Series 3 to my Series 2 since everything I record on my Series 3 is from an HD channel. So all the shows listed on my Series 3 had red circles with slashes in them meaning they couldn't be transfered because they were in HD which is incompatible with the Series 2s. (UPDATE: I went ahead and recorded a few minutes of a show on a standard def channel on my Series 3 and was then able to transfer it to my Series 2 so it is working both ways with standard def recordings)

    Pretty cool that I now have access to my Series 2 from downstairs at least.

    I have a a,a,a status by the TivoToGo: entry on System Information and on my account at www.tivo.com next to both my Series 2 and Series 3 under Current Accounts it says "Transfers ALLOWED" under Settings. I didn't have to check any boxes or anything.

    Schweet!

    Anyone tried a TiVoToGo transfer of an HD show yet?

    I'm here from work, not home, so can't check my TiVo HD, but can confirm that my TiVo account lists it as "Transfers ALLOWED".

    I'm getting antsy.

    *Sigh* We'll complain about it not working on Macs, which it looks like it doesn't (yet)...

    Sure, I confirm that I have MRV working between my S3 and my S2DT...

    <--- Not exactly a n00b or a troll dude.




    BTW, IIRC, when the S3 first rolled out, you could check the "enable transfers" box on the TiVo site but it didn't do anything and later it said "Not Allowed" or "Unavailable" or some such. I had checked it back when you could. I wonder if it just stayed set in the back-end database but did nothing and that's why it went "live" immediately for me and not for some others that had to go to TiVo.com first...?

    Be sure to do to your Dvr preferences and enable it. I had the same problem

    I have 9.2 on my S3, and transfered are checked and noted as allowed in my account. However from my Mac in Toast Titanium Tivo Transfer nothing appears to be working. Should this be working now?

    They need to update Toast for this to work.

    TiVo has enabled transfers, so transfer yourself home and try it out. :)

    I know they are aware of the issue, but I haven't heard of an ETA.
