    I just pushed an MKV from my computer to the Plus using pytivo. Throughput was 90 mbps over ethernet and 75 over MoCA. Pretty much on par with what I got on the Elite.

    Didn't try wireless. That's extremely YMMV anyway.

    Is your Ethernet network Gigabit?

    Installed pyTivo for the first time today and was able to successfully transfer avi and mkv files to my Plus. Speed of last transfer was 169.43 Mb/s (sending a bunch now... one was 148.36 Mb/s and another was 167.85 Mb/s). I have my house wired cat 6 gigabit router/switches.

    Should have installed this sooner w/my Elite as this is much better than dealing with Stream,Baby,Stream or Samsung's AllShare.

    EDIT: Interesting... I sent a video to my Elite and it transferred at 54.28 Mb/s. Big difference.

    EDIT2: Now that I've transferred all the programs to the Tivos, what a mess...sure could use custom folder creation for organization.

    EDIT3: Guess there are some ways to get these shows in folders with tivo desktop or kmttg. Will investigate.

    I use a metadata generator for pyTiVo. I usually can get shows to geoup with the other episodes I have recorded directly, but not always. I think there is some piece of data (show ID?) that has to match for them to group properly.

    seriesID. BTW, the metadata is just a simple text file.

    I know but filling it in by hand is a PITA. The program I use uses some sort of online database to download all the info. It's actually quite handy and works fine most of the time. Just sometimes I end up with an episode that's sitting outside the folder the others are in. (I have an episode of Bones like that on my Elite right now)

    If the generated metadata file is missing the seriesId, it's probably because it's missing from the TVDB database. In which case, there are a couple of ways to determine what it is and you can either enter it by hand in any of the metadata files from which it is missing or enter it into the TVDB database and recreate the metadata file(s). Then re-pull the episodes.

    If you don't mind my asking, which metadata generator program are you using? I have a reason for asking other than idle curiosity.

    That's weird. "Bones" definitely should not have that problem. You did "Pull" the episode via pyTivo, correct?

    Yep. I'm on my iPad right now so I can't check the name of the software I use. It,s one with two panes and some icons along the top for TV, Movies, etc...

    I'm assuming it's MetaGenerator?

    That sounds like MetaGenerator. Did you use the default of "theTVDB" for source or "TVRage"? Can you post the contents of the metadata file for the recording that does not group properly? I don't usually use MetaGenerator for TV shows (I use a modified version of pyTivoMetaThis), but I'm might be able to help you with this and least have more information for dlfl before sending you off here.
