    I just discovered a weird problem. My Roamio Pro is having issues returning the correct data if the AnchorOffset parm is set. It's not specifically pyTivo's fault, as I get the same bad data when querying the TiVo directly. My Wife's Roamio has a similar issue, but not quite as severe. Both of us are running TiVo software 20.7.1.RC2.

    Is this a known issue with the new software? Or something that's always happened and I just never noticed before?

    Also I found that if I set the Recurse flag I do NOT have an issue. Only when it's set to return the data with folders do I have an issue.

    I can't seem to work around it. There is no combination of flags I can use to return all recordings in my list.

    I actually get to a point where increasing the AnchorOffset actually starts removing items from the bottom of the list while leaving the items at the top the same.

    It's seriously FUed.

    I guess I'm going to have to use the Recurse flag and try to group recordings myself. (I'm working on a new UI for pyTivo)

    That's what I do in kmttg - I don't rely on grouping from TiVo since it's screwed up. Using RPC doesn't have the same issue - it's an XML issue largely because TiVo is ignoring HMO for several years.

    Does RPC return a link you can use to download a show from? Maybe I should modify pyTivo to include an RPC plugin that can get the data that way instead.

    Is there a debug mode in kmttg that shows the raw JSON data returned by RPC?

    For now I'm just downloading the recurse data without the folders. But it's going to result in a lot more work for me if I want to add folder support.
