I've been fighting this for a while so thought I'd post it out there to see what I'm missing. It seems really simple but I can't figure it out. I've got Win 7 64bit. 32 bit version of Python 2.6, 32 bit version of Python Image Library. I've had pyTivo up and running for a while and everything works great there. Trying to get pyHME going so that I can use Vidmgr. I've got pyHME copied and downloaed to c:\pytivo\pyhme. My pyHME config.ini file: [hmeserver] datapath=c:\ apps=clock vidmgr animate I'm doing all this from the cli. I've tried running both with and without the config file in place. When it's up and running I can telnet to localhost on port 9042. I've also tried with the Windows Firewall disabled. The problem is that when I go into the Tivo's (XL4 Elite and Premiere XL) they don't see the HME in the Showcase/Video section. I've tried about a million different things and just can't get it. I've also got vidmgr2 downloaded but since HME isn't working I'm not yet at the point of trying to test it. According to the latest help files the tivos section needs to go into the vidmgr config file so I've removed it from the hme config.ini (tried it both with and without). Output from the CLI: C:\pytivo\pyhme>start.py HME Server for Python 0.20 Fri Oct 19 20:40:44 2012 PyTivo Video Manager version 2.1b module initializing Cache file does not exist - no thumbnails loaded Fri Oct 19 20:40:44 2012 Server Starts Registering: animate Registering: clock Registering: vidmgr Feel like I'm missing something simple. Any ideas?
