Just as a trouble shooting measure, try disabling your firewall and antivirus software.I have a Tivo Premiere. I use "Tivo To Go" to transfer recordings onto my computer so that I can archive them.
I recorded some sports highlights a few days ago and I want to transfer this content onto my PC.
I opened up the Tivo To Go application. It does see the recording. However, when I click on it then it acts like it is going to transfer but then I see a yellow check mark and it just stops.
The only thing that I could think of was to reboot my Tivo. That did not fix my problem.
I cannot imagine that this would be copy protected. This is not a premium cable channel. And furthermore, I have Verizon Fios as my cable provider, and I do not think that they have ever blocked anything on me.
What firewall ap and antivirus software are you using? I use Windows firewall and AVG Free antivirus, and the Tivo software automatically configures them(if you let it) with no problem. It has issues with others though, especially some anti virus programs(Trend Micro).
Do you get a message by the "yellow check mark" about why the show did not transfer?
