    I'm new to Tivo and want to install Tivo Desktop Plus so I can move recordings to my pc. But it doesn't seem to be available on Tivo's website.
    Any help?

    TiVo Desktop Plus is not available but you can still download the free version of TiVo Desktop which will let you download recordings from your TiVo to your PC.

    http://assets.tivo.com/assets/exe/tivotogo/TiVoDesktop2.8.3.exe

    There are also other tools such as kmttg, Archivo or the built-in web server that allow you to download recordings as well.

    As well as well-used pyTivo, including in an easy-to-install set-up.

    Easier to use pyTivo

    Note that pyTivo and TiVo Desktop also will allow transfers from a PC to a TiVo box, with pyTivo doing format transcoding as needed.

    How did you try that? On the TiVo, you should be able to browse the shows on your PC and pull the shows to the TiVo. You can't push to the TiVo from the PC any more though.

    Your PC should be at the bottom of My Shows.

    What Joe said. :)

    Getting shows from your PC should be easy as well.
