I just installed Desktop 2.5. Tivo sees my computer and most of the videos in the MyTivo folder. There are a couple of videos it doesn't see.

When I try to transfer a video from the computer to Tivo, Tivo gives me an error message that there was a problem transferring the video and asks me to go to Recorded History to see why it didn't record. The videos are avi, mpeg and wmv. When I look in Recorded History, the reason given for not recording the video is that it can't be found on the computer. The videos show up on the Tivo screen under my computer's name, but when I go to transfer them, tivo can't find them.

I tried transferring from Tivo to my computer. It looked like it was transferring, but when I tried to play it after it completed, nothing played.

Suggestions please!

Thanks for your help!

Someone mentioned a PLUS Key. Is that something I need in addition to version 2.5? I didn't see anything about it on the TIVO site.

Are there any specific ports that need to be open for Tivo to see the My Tivo Folder?

The error I'm getting says that Tivo can't find the files on my computer, which is odd since they show up on the Tivo screen under my computer's name.

Regarding video formats that are compatible with Tivo, Tivo lists the following on their site as being compatible in version 2.5:

Supported video formats include:

Note: Files with digital rights management (DRM) or other copy protection are not supported.

Windows Media Video (.wmv)

QuickTime Movie (.mov)

MPEG-4/H.264 (.mp4,.m4v,.mp4v)

MPEG-2 (.mpg,.mpeg,.mpe,.mp2,.mp2v,.mpv2)

DivX and Xvid (.avi, .divx)


Is there anything additional to version 2.5 that needs to be installed for Tivo to be able to transfer the above formats?

Thanks for your help.
