    Maybe I missed this somewhere in all the chatter, but after the Fall 2012 update, my Linux machine running PyTiVo which is connected to the Premiere now appears as an exclamation point (!) in the My Shows listing. It used to be an icon of a computer.

    Is this supposed to mean something special? I tested pulling a video and playing it from the computer and it works fine.

    I still see the computer tower icon for pyTivo.

    I notice the Premiere and Series 3 get more detailed descriptions on this screen now. It even shows their TSNs... why, I don't know.

    Interesting. So the mystery is actually going to be more complex than I had thought. Might explain why nobody else has reported the "!" yet.

    Maybe my Premiere is just so impressed with my computer that it can't think of anything else to display except "!" !!

    Have you tried restarting PyTiVo or the switch if your TiVo is infected to one?

    "Infected"? Did you mean, "connected"?

    Yeah. My iPad sucks when it comes to autocorrect. It likes changing valid words pellet correctly to random rods.

    I have them as well but only for my network shares. Also some errors in the log about shares not existing. Seems that the TiVo may be scanning the shares or something as they are attached to the network however my network shares don't get mounted until about 2-3 minutes after pyTivo starts so it can't access them at that point.

    Falls...
    is there a correlation between people running pytivo on a linux box vs on a windows machine?

    That wouldn't explain saeba case where 1 box sees proper icon and the other doesn't, presumably from same pyTivo server.

    On my premiere, I see the "!" on all shares except the last share. My shares are hosted on a windows based system.

    Yes, 2 TiVos and one pyTivo server (Windows 7 64-bit PC). One TiVo has the icon (the XL4) and the other the "!" (XL).

    I was able to see the "!", along with a greyed-out title, by creating an empty share; but only for an instant, after which it changed to the normal display. I'm not really sure that the emptiness was key.

    Edit: And I was able to get it to stay as "!" by pointing to a nonexistent directory. But in no other way.
