Multi-room viewing transfer did not start or was incomplete. How do I resolve this?
Multi-Room Viewing Transfer did not start
If your transfer did not or will not start, the recording history may tell you the reason why:
TiVo with HD menus: From TiVo Central go to Manage recordings & downloads > Recording History.
TiVo with SD menus: From TiVo Central go to Find Programs > To Do List > View Recording History.
Multi-Room Viewing Transfer was incomplete
If a transfer was incomplete, it could be for one of the following reasons:
The program on the source DVR may have been deleted before the transfer was completed.
The transfer may have been stopped on the destination DVR before the transfer was completed.
There may have been a connection or network issue that prevented the transfer from completing. The DVR will continue to attempt transfer of the complete program for three days. Check the network connection to ensure that it is working properly.
Multi-Room Viewing shows a recording from a regular channel will not transfer
If you recorded a show on a standard channel, and it is marked with a red circle-slash icon, this means the transfer is unavailable. This can occur for many reasons, but most commonly it is due to one of the following reasons:
You are attempting to transfer a digital or HD recording to a TiVo Series2 or Series1 DVR. These boxes are not capable of viewing digital or HD recordings and will not allow you access to such recordings.
Your cable provider may have implemented copy-protection on live television programs, enabling you to record to a TiVo box, but not to transfer it to another DVR or your PC. See Questions about for more information.
