Is there a way to transfer video from one TiVo to the other without using FTP?

I have MRV set up on two TiVos. Say I'm watching a movie and don't want to stop it. I would like to transfer a video from one TiVo to the other using the MRV option but without using my remote.

Is there a way to initiate the transfer with telnet?

If you have MRV then you can transfer them that way.
If you "Pause" the show you are watching on TiVo "A", you can choose start from paused point on TiVo "B" and transfer starting from the paused point on TiVo "A" if the show has been recorded.
It will not transfer shows being recorded.

I think what you're asking is: "What is the command-line equivalent for MRV (from the bash prompt)?"

The answer is... I don't know. I'm not even sure if its possible since a lot of these functions are not really "commands" but instead built into the tivoapp program itself.
