Music & Photos stopped working

First of all thanks to all at PTVUPGRADE,DVRplayground.  This is great Stuff!My setup:Tivo1:  DirectTivo: Dual drive(40gig/120gig) upgraded with PTVUPGRADE utilitiesTivo2: DirectTivo: Single 400gig drive built with PTVupgrade.Windows XP Professional system, latest updatesNetwork: All Wired.  Recommended DLINK 10/100 usb adapters on the Tivos.  Older SMC Router(Don't think this matters since everything is wired).  I have entered MAC addresses in the router to create static IPsWhat works:Telnet, FTP, TivoWeb, MRV,video extraction, video streaming to PCWhat does NOT work:HMO - this worked and then stopped working on both Tivos.  Worked for a few days then stopped.  Entering the IP address of the PC running Tivo Desktop into the Tivo does not help.What is intermittent (in case it matters)?TivoWeb viewing Now Showing List(Some times does not complete) I figured this was because of the long lists of shows on the tivosStreaming has occasionally stopped for no reason; I can stream again with no problem.What I have done:Tried disabling Windows firewall & Mcaffe - no changeReinstalls of Tivo 2.3 Desktop do not make any difference, I also did a registry clean after removing Tivo desktopLooked at ports opened in Firewall, appear to be OK but I did not do a complete inspection, I see a number of ports opened for Tivo.Tivo Desktop 2.3 does see the 2 Tivos on the networkI have seen some references on the Tivo support website, but they all seem to apply to a Mac systemsThis appears to be an issue with the Tivo desktop software or something on my PC any suggestions? Thanks for any help!

 

I gave up trying to t-shoot

I gave up trying to t-shoot TD 2.3.  I had same problem, reasonably adept at networking, hacking, etc.  Anyway, just do a google for "JavaHMO" and install that instead.  I think the latest (last) version was 2.4.  It's successor, Galleon, won't work with d-tivos but J-HMO does everything tivo desktop does and a few other tricks.  Seems that when either TD or J-HMO doesn't work the other one does.  I suspect some bugs betwen the "tivo beacon" service and my firewall.  J-HMO doesn't need the tivo beacon.

Anybody still have a copy of the Tivo-Desktop 2.2 setup executable? 

Thanks,

Thanks,

After I made this post I found and installed the Java version.  Works great and has more features.  I also noticed Tivo seems to have Downgraded from Desktop 2.3 to 2.2 on there website Why??  In any case Desktop 2.2 did not work either.
