I have two TiVos and the home networking package, plus I have TiVo desktop installed on a PC.
While I have no problems (now) transferring programmes from one TiVo to the other, I have had no luck transferring TiVo programmes to the PC.
The software "sees" both TiVos, and downloads the programme details. However, once the transfer is set up, it comes up with the error message "The system cannot find the file specified".
I have tried numerous fixes including:
* disabling the firewall
* trying the Beacon discovery protocol
* uninstalling (including using the TiVo uninstall software package) and reinstalling
* installing the Feb '13 patch.
Today I also tried to use kmttg; similarly, the programme can 'see' the TiVos and all the recorded programmes, and it claims to have successfully downloaded programmes. However, these are tiny in size and incomplete (eg a 1.03GB programme once is transferred is 13kb). (I've copied at the bottom of this the basic log from downloading this programme.)
I note that this PC is running Windows 8, with TiVo claiming its desktop software isn't compatible with this verison. However elsewhere I have read that it does work ok, so I don't believe this to be the cause of the problem.
Anyway - the question is: can anyone offer any suggestions as to what may be causing this problem and what I can do to fix it?
Also, are there other TiVo/networking package users that successfully transfer material onto a Windows 8 machine?
Many thanks for any assistance.
