Mac-Toast 11.0.2 - Tivo Transfer

Question

Installed 11.0.2 Toast Update on my MacPro. I cannot now transfer TiVo recordings from my DVR to a storage hard drive. Such transfers have worked flawlessly until I installed the 11.0.2 update. The Start Transfer seems to activate, but the 'in progress' status never changes.

 

Any advice on how to 'fix' the problem?

 

Thanks

It's working for me. So I suggest restarting your TiVo, your router, your Mac so that everything gets reset.

I turned off the router(s) (Airport Extreme & Airport Express); turned off the computer; unplugged the TiVo. Left all off for ~1 hour.

 

Then turned on routers, waiting until the Green lights came on; then restarted the computer; then started the TiVo.

 

Booted Toast, selected TiVo Transfer, activated one 1-hour transfer. After 2 hours, that Transfer is still running, thus no go.

 

Would you recommend I uninstall Toast and start over?

 

Thanks......Jim

Trash just the TiVo Transfer application and delete it. Now choose TiVo Transfer from the Toast Extras menu. That will install the latest version. Maybe that will fix the problem.

I give up.

 

1. I deleted the TiVo Transfer app; restarted Toast; tried to select TiVo Transfer, but nothing happened (no TiVo Transfer installed or showed up).

 

2. I deleted the updated Toast (11.02), reinstalled Toast 11 and activated TiVo Transfer - still didn't work. I then copied the TiVo Transfer app to a 3rd location, deleted Toast 11; reinstalled Toast 11 and then updated it (again to 11.02); activated TiVo Transfer, it still didn't work. I then deleted the TiVo Transfer app from the Toast folder & pasted the TiVo Transfer app I had placed in a 3rd location. That 'reinstalled' TiVo Transfer app still didn't work.

 

I'm out of ideas.

 

Thoughts?

 

Thanks

I'm so sorry for giving you that suggestion and causing such a pain. That was the way to install the TiVo Transfer application in previous Toast versions but as you've found it doesn't work that way with this version. It was a completely bad suggestion.

 

If only I could make up for this with a suggestion that actually solves the problem. The fact that TiVo Transfer recognizes you TiVo is all that usually needs to happen. The only idea I have left is to change the location in TiVo Transfer preferences where the video will be saved. Sorry!

Thought I'd let you know I finally found the problem (in a round-about way). First I changed location of transfers - that didn't help. Second, I trashed Toast 11 & reinstalled Toast 10. That didn't help either. Then I restarted my TiVo (which reloads the OS) & bingo- that solved the problem. I then trashed Toast 10, reinstalled & updated Toast 11 & I'm back in business with the latest version of Toast. Thanks for your perseverance.............Jim
