------------ XP SR2 I am having getting Tivo to 'talk to' my PC over a wireless network. Went to Tivo support and forum but was unable to get an answer. I have a Dell router. PC ic connected to the PC via ethernet. Tivo is connected wirelessly Notebook is connected wirelessly. PDA connected wirelessly for net use only. PC, notebook, and PDA work. Tivo lists an IP address and signal strentgh is good to excellent. Notebook can see Tivo and can download files to HD. PC can not find Tivo. However, when I open Tivo sw on the PC Tivo's correct IP is listed. When I ping Tivo (ping xxx.xxx.x.x), I get 4 packets sent/received. Per Tivo, I entered URL https://xxx.xxx.x.x into my browser, entered name and password, and the PC can see Tivo but can not download. Tivo say this confirms the problem is a blocked port. I have literally uninstalled Norton antivirus and firewall, disabled XP firewall, and tried again. Keep getting a mesage from Tivo (on the PC)about an error on trying to communicate which Tivo says indicates a port problem. I have been told by an expert (a friend how knows more than I do) that since Tivo can talk to my notebook through the router, the problem with the PC is not the router or the router firewall. I have a list of ports to open but since, at the time, I had no without a firewall, I had no sw to tell to open ports or allow programs. I have, btw, reinstalled the firewall and antivirus sw. How can I find what is blocking those ports or, is it possble the ports are defective? Since posting this elsewhere I was directed to an app called PortQryUI. Ran the check of required ports with the firewall uninstalled and Windows Firewall disabled. Although this may give me answers, I have no idea what this is telling me (what is 'filtered?').
