Yes, you can watch it a show down loaded on to a pc from the other pc. My son & I are on the same subnet & he watches show recorded on my computer all the time.
I, on the other hand can't seem to see his computer even tho I can ping it. He's 6 so he hasn't figure out how to hide it from me yet but I digress.

You could just share the FOLDER that the shows are saved to on that drive...dont have to share the whole drive.

You have to download the show first to your PC right? There is no way you can watch the show through the TIVO right? I am trying to setup a Media Center so that all of the PC's in the house have some where to go and pick up movies or shows. I was hoping they could look in the TIVO and see what shows are stored and click on the one they want and be able to watch it. It sounds like to me they have to download it first and then use the desktop software to run it. Any help would be better then nothing. Thanks
