Has anyone transferred Livingdna results to My Heritage?

No, I will wait until their download is out of Beta.

I tried several times. I got a 'kit not valid' error message.

I tried too and get the same "file is invalid" reply. I don't understand why. The LivingDNA data worked fine at Gedmatch genesis.

It tells us that our files are to small.

This is how I interpret it, don't know if it is really the case:
LivingDNA tests about 600k snps. MyHeritage tests about 700k snps. Out of genesis gedmatch, I can infer that there are ca. 162k snps overlap. I think it is logical to assume that only those overlapping snps can be transferred, theoretically. Importing 162k snps into a system which accomodates 700k snps would then lead to problems. I don't know if this is true for other companies; it can be that they overlap more or less with each other.

EDIT: it looks like LivingDNA uses more "unique" snps, which many other companies don't use; other companies may overlap more. Here (https://isogg.org/wiki/Autosomal_SNP_comparison_chart) is a chart (which is still uncomplete).

Debbie Cruwys Kennett has a great explanatory blog or thread at the Facebook ISOGG site.. The gist of it is that they are using the newer GSA chip which other companies will soon follow..23andme is one.

She explained why living DNA data has less gedmatch snps used too.

Does anyone plan to upload any of their data from other companies to LivingDNA. Even if they have already tested there?

My dad's and my aunt's data immediately after we're able to transfer. I asked them to confirm if they'll accept transfers from Ancestry v4 (I think that's the current version?) and they told me they would accept those transfers.

The odd thing is that both my and my sister gedmatch says our files are too small while it took our moms. Why?
