    Im running Ubuntu 16.04, 64 bit both on my laptop, as well as a dedicated media server. I'm trying to install pyTivo, but can't find instructions. The last one is for ubuntu 14, and I fail to apt-get most of those libraries listed. Anyone have instructions that are current?

    I already have the multiverse, vlc, handbrake, ffmpeg, and vobcopy installed and working. Just can't figure out pyTivo. Currently, the web app says "connection reset"

    After that launch a browser and go to...
