I need to move some content from a HR10-250 to my dsr7000. Is one better to use that the other? Thanks Michael

Mfs_ftp will allow you to perform direct tivo-to-tivo transfers as long as your FTP client supports FXP transfers. TyTools will only allow you to transfer files to your PC in ty format, resulting in the loss of any program description info. I'd use mfs_ftp and transfer the files in either tmf or ty+ format.

Also, .tmf files are the best suited for insertion into another Tivo. .ty files from TyTool lose all the XML info, etc. (mfs_ftp .ty+ files are probably fine too but I've never bothered with them.)
