I moved by computer today as the wife wanted the room rearranged. After the move
I decided to update my software for TIVO as it was at 2.2 of the desktop.

I downloaded version 2.5 and installed it on my XP system. When I start it I get

The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. :eek:

Since version 2.2 worked, I am thinking that I might have to do a system restore.

I have done the following to this point.

- updated JAVA
- updated Quicktime
- updated Tivo desktop.
- rebooted.

What am I missing or doing wrong? Has the ports changed from 2.2 to 2.5?

I was getting the same message on a Vista Ultimate machine. In my case it was because Zone Alarm Security Suite does not play nice with TiVo Desktop 2.5. The TiVo beacon server would not run even when I shut down ZA. I had to deinstall it.

I would check to see if it's a conflict with your firewall or other security software.
