Glad to hear that some others aren't having problems.
I spoke with the Tivo tech support and installed TivoDesktop. In my Mac's 'System Preferences' -> 'Internet & Network' -> 'Sharing' setup, I formatted the Tivo settings in the 'Firewall' tab (port name-other, port number-8102, description-TiVoDesktop), but then 'TivoDesktop' did not appear in the 'Services' tab next to the Firewall tab, as it should. This is part of the problem.
I'm nearly 100% sure that there's not a private VPN running that would block Tivo from accessing my Apple.
After calling Apple, we checked: Applications, Utilities, Network Utility, Port Scan, local host search, to see if the Tivo-designated port was open. It wasn't. This seems to be the crux of the problem.
In Tivo, the Apple server does not register in the Music & Photos section.
After talking with Tivo several times, they've had enough of me and they say they 'don't support Apple. After talking with Apple several times, they say they don't support Tivo. Needless to say there are no Apple specialists at Tivo, since 95% of Tivo users use PCs.
Does this make sense?
