After some trouble getting the PC to see the TiVo (TiVo Server Properties | Access Control) it made it to the list. Note the TiVo was always able to see the PC on "Now Playing List".
Anyway, now they can both see each other. Let's try and actually watch something I have sitting on my PC... First the easy way: copy a file to My Tivo Recordings folder and open it from the PVR... Nope, nothing there.
Next try was TiVo Desktop Plus: select another folder to transfer.The file shows up on the desktop list, but on TiVo it says "empty"...
If I try to see recordingts on TiVo I open the TiVo Desktop and when I click Pick Recordings to Transfer I get this:
"There was an error while attempting to retrieve data from the selected DVR. Access is denied"
