For those who are interested, I've successfully installed and run TiVo Desktop 2.4a on Windows Home Server RC1. After installing the latest JRE, HD Photos works too.
How do you install tivo desktop on WHS? It is an exe file and the add on is looking for msi files? New to WHS and am trying to get this loaded.For those who are interested, I've successfully installed and run TiVo Desktop 2.4a on Windows Home Server RC1.

I've just run across an add-in for WHS to give us the same functionality only it should be much easier to install and manage.
I'll be trying it out and see if it can display HD photos on the S3...
I installed the add-in on my HP MediaSmart Windows Home Server, but whenever my Series 3 Tivo tries to access the home server it reboots! No idea if it's a bug in the Tivo or the home server add-in but it obviously renders the add-in useless for me.
I tried to install it on my WHS(the new HP one) but couldn't figure out how to get it to work. I also don't know jack about PERL or other scripts... SIGHI have been setting up my new WHS server over the last couple of days. Made it from the guts of an old server.
Installed pyTivo today and it was smooth as could be. I was a little hesitant as I had not seen much about it, but it really couldn't be easier. Running as Admin, and pyTivo as a service. After seeing how smooth this went in and enjoying the results, I am not even going to worry about Tivo Desktop.
