I have several AVI formatted home movies and some mpgs I would like to play on my TiVO.
I place these files in "My TiVo Recordings directory and try to upload from my tivo and it will not upload them.

Additionally I add things to the directory and TiVo server and Tivo Box do not see the additions.
Everything else (Pictures music etc...) works great over network.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Did you buy the Plus key? Although not clear in the documentation, that is needed to be able to transfer not TiVo compliant MPEG.

Not if it has to convert, and since that is not a native TiVo format, it has to convert, and conversion requires access to codecs, which for TiVoDesctop, means you need to buy them with the Plus key.
