    Hi all.
    After 2 years of using my Tivo I have decided to move my Shared Directories folder from my Desktop to my: Mac/username folder/ now apart from dragging the folder their how do I change the 7 folders within location so my Tivo player can see them.

    Thanks in advance
    Cheers

    It's been a long time for me (I've just let the thing run for years), but isn't there a text file called something like pytivo.confg? You just edit it. You'll see the old location path(s), just edit it to the new path(s).

    No, because I have no idea how you set pyTivo up on your system. But Spotlight can. You know, the magnifying glass, top right?

    Before you do that, though: Are you using pyTivo, or pyTivoX? If it's the latter, you probably want to use its own method of configuration.

    You can also use the web interface ( http://localhost:9032/ ) rather than editing the pyTivo.conf file.
