    Any thoughts? And for the record, I 've never had any problems with this type of AVI file before (using AVi.net to encode).

    Wow, that's weird. I'll try to figure out why it's doing that.

    The original size is weird, too -- 720x496? How does that happen?

    When I open AVI.net to encode that file it gives me that size option. Actually, it suggests like 720x536 or something, but I normally reduce it to 720x504 or x496. Like I said, I've never had a problem with it before. I watched all of "Person of Interest" that way. I'll attach the MEDIA INFO file if you want.

    I have no use for the MediaInfo, thanks. Possibly the file itself.

    So, you encoded this yourself? From what source? I'd suggest encoding it to a TiVo-compatible format instead of this.

    Well, I took the TiVo file from my TiVo, then run it through KMTTG to decode and also get subtitles. After the AdCut portion, I do the encoding either using Handbrake OR Avi.net. On this file, I used Avi.net.

    I think the point is if your main objective is to create a file that plays on the TiVo then don't encode to a format that is not TiVo compatible. And if you're not doing anything to it such as cutting out commercials then just leave it as .TiVo for that matter. And if you are encoding for other uses as well as for a TiVo it's still best to pick a TiVo compatible format (H.264 with AC3 or AAC audio for example) that doesn't require transcoding when transferring back to the TiVo.

    I thought ffmpeg could handle just about anything? In the past, I have had success dealing with xvid transcoded files in AVI format, that's why I've gotten to like that format. It allows me to take a 480x480 S2 file and stretch it so that I can see it in 720xSomething format on my big screen HDTV (does that make sense?)

    I have tried to get post AdCut files to process in KMTTG and have failed every time, so I have no idea what I am doing wrong there, and whenever I asked for help about it on that thread no one has helped me, just like no one has helped me on why I can't get pyTivo to run with the "console window" being open in Windows XP in this thread.

    Oh well, it's not a big deal....

    But that's the reason I have reverted to AVI.net and Handbrake.

    It's not about what it can do, but what it makes sense to do.

    No. You can't get any extra detail that way; it just gets blurrier. If your issue is converting a letterboxed 4:3 image to 16:9 -- there are better ways to do that.

    You know, just because your problems haven't been solved, doesn't mean people haven't tried to help you. But some people are hard to help.

    Ok, let's take each of these individually:

    I Understand... But in this case it failed because of my file OR because of pyTivo?

    This is what I meant.... Person of Interest plays Letterboxed in my area. I tried to get the 4:3 image to play better on my 16:9 TV. OK, simply, I have no idea how to do this. What is the best way. AVI.net was helping me -- I thought. What's better. Keep in mind I only have an S2.

    I did not say that... But why would you say I am hard to help? I have not complained, other than saying that I have not gotten help. The point being, without running "pyTivo.py" in Console, I can not get any of my files or folders to show on my S2 TiVo. This has happened with the latest installation of pyTivo after my computer crashed and I had to put in a new Hard Drive and a new Windows XP installation. Windows XP is patched all the way up to SP3+.

    So a month ago everything was working. Now, it's not. Why am I hard to help? What have I done?

    I am sorry if I said something or done something to upset someone.

    I have always tried to take the steps you all have given me to see where it leads me.

    I do not know as much about Video as some people. Heck, I ever even tried to convert one of my DVDs to a digital file with little success. All I do, is try to archive some of my TV shows, because I can't watch all of them during the season.

    PyTivo and KMTTG have been great tools in this effort. But I am still trying to figure out what to encode my final files with so I can pull them back and watch. I don't have the HDD space to save .tivo files, or .ts files. MP4 files seem to be the best, but I Don't know what program to use to create the correct ones after adcut with VideoRedo (which I own).

    Anyway, I am rumbling, I am sorry..... I'll go away now, and as always, try to figure out the answer myself.

    I think the problem is you have to approach each question one at a time. Appears you want to do something, but aren't quite sure how to do it and are asking for advice in a round a bout way. If you want to get to a goal and aren't sure how to get there you can ask for advice. If you know what you want to do and are set on doing it a certain way and something isn't working, you need to break it down yourself and pose the issues separately.

    P.S. I would suggest (if it's not a great imposition) uninstalling pytivo and python and starting from scratch. Win7 is a harsh mistress, especially since you restored from a BACKUP DRIVE. Worked for me. Make sure you _DON'T_ install pytivo to any program files directory, use another directory off C:, like C:\pytivo.

    I thought I was clear on what I was asking on this message:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=9649537#post9649537

    Basically, I have added pyTivo to the Services that autostart, right? So, when I try to pull a show from one of my video folders, why are they empty?

    No one has answered that for me yet.

    Are you aware of the Alternate Streams (ADS) for files on Win7? (Did you unblock the zip file before unzipping?)

    Did you start from scratch and reinstall python and pytivo?

    What do you mean by "unblocking" the ZIP file?

    Alternate Streams?

    I am already lost here....

    And BTW, I have Windows XP. And, I think, I have followed the installation instructions perfectly. I think... :confused:

    ADS also exists on XP if that's what you're using. They were intro'd with Win2K(NTFS). Called Alternate Data Streams. You mentioned in your original problem post about restoring a backup but you weren't clear what you were running before you restored your backup to XP SP3. That's why I mention ADS for you to research since you don't provide enough info for anyone to help.

    P.S. I would suggest (if it's not a great imposition) uninstalling pytivo and python and starting from scratch, especially since you restored from a BACKUP DRIVE. Worked for me. Make sure you _DON'T_ install pytivo to any program files directory, use another directory off C:, like C:\pytivo.

    I knew nothing of ADS (seriously). I am not sure how they are affecting me.

    My restore went like this: I OWN 10 CLEAN COPIES of WINDOWS XP (used to be a system builder). Therefore, I did a CLEAN INSTALL into a brand new HARD DRIVE.

    The only items I restored from backup were the contents of "My Documents" from my Seagate backup Hard Drive using the Seagate included utility. Every Program of Note that I use, was installed CLEAN (from scratch).

    Does that help explain my situation any better? I still don't understand ADS, but I will research further. It's been an awful long time since I took my MCP/MSCE tests and I don't remember ADS. Oh well, maybe, I am forgetting stuff in my old age.

    Just suggestin' the simplest route is to uninstall/reinstall pytivo and python. It's not as bad as reinstalling Windows and is the quickest way to solve your problems. Take it step-by-step. If you think you have some preferences you need to save, what are they and in what apps? Believe me, it's just easier to start over when it comes to pytivo and python, same with VideoReDo, especially if you were running VRD beta code.

    P.S. I have no idea how to make your TiVo S2 4x3 recordings look good on a 16x9 TV. I only have S3(HD) and S4(Premiere). Just wanted to make sure you were running latest pytivo/python combo to eliminate any guess work.

    To be honest, I don't think I have any preferences that need to be saved. I am only going to save the pyTivo configuration file.

    If you think a re-installation will help, I will do it.

    As for VideoRedo... I am not running BETA code. I purchased it straight-up.

    Finally, for latests pyTivo code, has there been a new release lately?

    Follow the install directions on the wiki:
    http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Windows_Install
    and I suggest you use the latest commit in the wmcbrine fork:
    https://github.com/wmcbrine/pytivo (simply click the zip button near the top of that page).

    Your problem of only seeing your files when run from console is most probably a service permission issue, as explained here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=8904300#post8904300

    The other common problem for not seeing shares in service mode (aside from what gonzotek posted above) is if you are mapping networked drives to windows volumes. Services cannot see networked drives that way. Instead you need to use UNC path names:
    \\server\share\file_path
