Ah I see... You don't HAVE to create the pyTivo.conf file BEFORE you can launch the Web Interface... So that's certainly better... It launches once you get ffmpeg installed in it... Which brings up ANOTHER question... Actually two... 1. Why isn't the latest version of ffmpeg simply included with the software download too? and secondly, 2. Why isn't a basic working copy (for video anyway) of the pyTivo.conf file included with the Software download?
