I'm using a Roamio and recently started seeing 'Tivo Desktop did not find a Tivo DVR" on my Tivo Desktop program.
I've tried using Pytivo and kmttg with no luck, I've checked my firewalls, and I have not seen any changes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, if you know the IP address of the TiVo. You can find it under the Network Connection settings. In your browser go to https://IP Address/ and log in with the user name "tivo". The password is your Media Access Key.

I tried that and it took me to a TiVo page saying I'm connected to my TiVo, but it does not prompt me for username nor the MAK. Any more suggestions. thanks for the help!

Wow! Appreciate the reply back, I don't get that, just the "congratulations, you've successfully connected your TiVo"
I'm using edge and chrome browsers.
No prompts or errors.
Any more troubleshooting tips?
First, with ie11 and other browsers you need to use https:// but Chrome/Edge don't let you log-in. You'll get that pretty message without the "s".

You need to go to....

https://<TiVo IP>/nowplaying/index.html

when prompted the user name is "tivo" and the password is your MAK. I just tried it in Chrome and it worked just fine. Although I had to bypass the security warning saying the certificate was bad. To do that you have to click the more link at the bottom and then click proceed anyway.

Can anyone tell me why I'm getting "access forbidden"? Thanks in advance.

Ok so you get access to the list of shows and then when you try to download something you get this?

If so log into your TiVo account, click Device Settings, and make sure the Video Sharing box is checked.

If this is a cable company supplied TiVo and you don't have access to your account then you're out of luck. A lot of cable companies intentionally disable this feature.
