    Ok, so I'm confused. I thought we determined that HD Photos needed to "talk" to TiVo Desktop. Are you saying that the Galleon photos app will work for that?

    I dug further with Galleon this evening, and found that this addition to the run.sh script is what fixes the mDNS port in use problems:
    -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

    Sorry to resurrect a two-year-old thread, but I tried following the instructions for the HDPhotos app on my wife's iMac and it seems to have used VMWare Fusion's networking port instead of the actual Ethernet connection (or even the Airport's IP; yes, I have both wired and wireless IPs).

    Is there any way to force the app to use the proper IP? I tried specifying --iface 192.168.2.8 but it seemed to have no effect.

    Apparently the parameter is named --intf; good thing I know how to read Java. :) I managed to get it to show up on the TiVo, but none of our iPhoto albums showed up properly. Oh well! We have a PS3 for a reason, I guess.... If anyone knows of a way to get iPhoto albums to work in the HD Photos app, feel free to let me know. :)

    You need an HMO server as the back end (and you need to point the app at it). For example, I've used it under Linux, with pyTivo as the HMO server. You have to configure the HMO server as usual, and make sure its photo shares appear (in SD) via the TiVo's native viewer, before you set up the HD Photos app.

    BTW, re the comments above about not scaling up: That's a limitation of TiVo Desktop, not the HD Photos app. pyTivo will scale up.

    Not in the HD photos app, but the Galleon photos App knows about iPhoto albums. Just used it today to look at vacation photos from the beach!

    Ok, I've read through this thread and I'm still a bit confused on how to get, install and run the HD Photos app with Galleon 2.5.5 on Linux. I've tried using the HDPhotos plugin with Galleon which claims it downloads and installs the HD Photos app, but I've had no success with it.

    I'd appreciate any instructions on how to make this work because I'm missing out on all my high quality pics using the SD photos app.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the late reply ... did you get this working? I've had no issues lately with the HDPhotos app running through Galleon. Is there anything in your log.txt file?
