    Also, any idea how I can get the pytivox main screen to re-appear?

    As I said before, since I re-installed pytviox, I no longer get the main screen when I run it. It seems to work in that the tivo can see it, but I can't change any of the settings. "About pytviox" and ""check for updates" both seem to work.

    For some reason the pyTivoX window will never force itself to the front. So you should minimize every other window open (including any finder windows). If you still don't see the settings window, try selecting the settings thing in the menu again. It should pop up with no problem.

    I minimized everything else and it just plain wasn't there.

    "About pytivox" and "check for updates" work fine from the toolbar menu.

    What do you mean by "seletecting the settings thing in the menu". There's no toolbar menu entry for settings.

    Confused,

    OK I think I know what you mean. There's a little menubar icon at the top right that I hadn't noticed before. That does indeed allow me to bring up the main screen for pytvox, so that problem is now solved!

    As to my other problem, I managed to fix it by clearing the pending transfers, then rebooting the tivo *while the queue is empty*. The previous time when I rebooted the tivo, I had items in the queue (tho I had emptied it and added things to it before that).

    So all is well now. Thanks to everyone for their help.

    RE: Broken Images....

    Any idea when Yoav will fix this issue? I see others are starting to post the broken image issue too.

    Thanks for all your hard work (esp Yoav ;-)

    Is there any conflict with running TiVo Desktop and pyTiVoX on the same Mac?

    First, I love pyTivo, does what Tivo desktop should've done all along.
    I'll add my name to the chorus of those who can't get images to show up. I'm also using OSX10.6.1, and pyTivo 1.3.
    But, I wouldn't care if it ever gets fixed, because I'm totally digging on the other features of the program.

    No, but you may end up with duplicate services (i.e. two listings for music and/or photos). I run both, although I use pyTiVo only for video and TiVo Desktop for music and photos, so no duplicate entries.

    I am constantly having to quit & restart PyTivoX, because my computer only shows up under "Music, Photos, Showcases" right after I start PyTivoX. If the computer goes to sleep, it won't show up again unless I quit & restart the application.

    It does generally show up in Now Playing, so this is a streambaby-related issue.

    Someone else has posted this bug as Issue 27 here: http://code.google.com/p/pytivox/issues/detail?id=27

    Is anybody else having this problem? Is anybody not having this problem?

    I bet you are running Snow Leopard. It is an issue with PIL (Python Image Library). From what I have learned from this thread we have to wait for a version of PIL that works on Snow Leopard. Or you can compile it yourself. I have tried and have hit many obstacles. :(

    Nope, still running Leopard. Showing photos worked a couple of months ago, but it doesn't work now.

    Wow. this is weird. All I know about Leopard is that I was using the Beta build of PyTiVoX on Leopard and Photos worked.

    I am using PytivoX v1.3. I am having difficulty transferring the same movie if I stopped the transfer mid-stream or my mac is going to sleep during the transfer.
    I've attached the log file for you to review. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks

    Got PyTiVoX installed and can see the files from the S3 that are on the iMac.
    Haven't tried a transfer back yet to the tivo as I am madly going the other direction in prep for a new external drive, replacing a failing one.

    The file names I see on the mac in the S3 NPL have underscores as placeholders for word spaces. Is that something you see and do they go away after transfer to the Tivo? I am using Tivo transfer to bring them over to the mac from the tivo, maybe that has something to do with it.

    for example: Saving_Private_Ryan_other_info

    I haven't figured out why yet, but just a fair warning: pyTiVoX 1.3 stopped working right after I installed today's Security Update for Leopard. I'm running an Intel Mac mini and Leopard 10.5.8.

    I just installed today's Snow Leopard update (10.6.2) and PyTiVoX still appears to be working okay here. Played a couple of songs and transferred a couple of recordings okay.
