Tivo Transfer WILL NOT find DVR


paddy77

Question

Pardon the cross post but I'm hoping I'll have better luck with a response here than I'm having over on the Popcorn 3 forum. Any other suggestions will be welcomed.

 

Just purchased Popcorn 3, upgraded to 3.0.2, using TT 1.1.1 on a MacBook Pro running 10.4.10 I have disabled all firewalls, can see the TiVo on the network by entering the network address in a browser window, and have followed all the suggestions in other forums (reboot router, reboot DVR, reboot DVR while TT is open, etc.) I even installed TiVo Desktop (which I installed a few months ago and could not ever get to load, and still does not load) and then removed it. Nothing works. Rebooted computer and repaired permissions just in case that might help. Nothing!!!!

 

I seriously hesitated buying this software because of all the trouble others are having, and have had with it, BUT I really want to transfer shows to my iPod for cross country flights so desperation won out over simple common sense. I'm hoping somebody can help me with this, otherwise this POS software is going back while I'm still within my 30 day return policy.

 

I haven't opened a trouble ticket with Roxio, yet, but don't really see the need since I need another tech support form letter in my inbox like I need more SPAM. I don't see alot of useful information coming out of tech support lately, not in the forums anyway, and I'm really not interested in getting all the bleeding heart "give'em a break" posts.

 

TIA,

Paddy

Did you make sure you have the same media access code both on your DVR and your software?

Return the roxio and get one of the free programs out ther like TivoDecode manager. Works fine for your needs.

Actually I bought Popcorn when TiVo Decode Manager quit working for me after the TiVo update. It seems to decode fine, but then only converts about 1/4 of the movie or program. Since there is no support for the product, and no updates or info have been forthcoming, I opted for something with some support. The awful part about it is that with TDM at least I got it decode and partially converted, this Popcorn POS can't even find my DVR! :angry:

 

Thanks for the suggestion though.......
