    You can set a generic default.txt metadata file per share or directory I believe. I'm not terribly familiar with this aspect of pyTivo but pulled this up from the pyTivo forums.

    http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/forum/customized-series-title-t1971.html?highlight=metadata one folder

    You may want to read up over there and ask any questions you have.

    I'm incredibly frustrated. I've used pyTiVoX/streambaby for months to stream to my Tivo Premiere Elite, and tonight it just won't work. Nothing that I do makes an entry appear in my TiVo's "Showcases & Apps" menu.

    How do I debug this?

    It's kind of tough to say. This type of issue could be related to many things. A software/system update, firewall issues, networking issues.....etc. The most basic thing you can do is to restart your TiVo and computer. There is also a debug mode for streambaby but pyTivoX makes it a little more difficult to access and having not used pyTivoX for years I couldn't say exactly how to enable it off the top of my head.

    You may also try to use streambaby as a standalone application. As it runs in the Terminal it may be easier to catch issues.

    Is there an easy way to get vidmgr working with pytivox?

    Why doesn't someone, more clever than I, just write a Plex client for the Tivo? It is the MOST elegant way to display all your saved media to a Tv and I, for one, would appreciate the elimination of a secondary box, ie: appletv, roku, to display that media.

    While that would be great (I'm liking Plex more and more these days) I get the feeling that development for apps on the TiVo isn't exactly a walk in the park. TiVo's APIs or infrastructure just isn't something developers have flocked to. There's no ecosystem, and the installed customer base is relatively small. Where's their incentive?

    In the meantime, I switch between boxes. I use Plex on my (jailbroken) AppleTV (love it!) as well as my Roku.

    While I also have a Roku and Mac Mini I would love to get rid of so many extra boxes and remotes. I think the reason the Plex community (developers) has not attempted to do anything is the fact that no developer has a Tivo to work with. I assume you would need a box for testing.

    Are you sure about that? I recall reading that one element of the MHL tech is that it can do UI and menu overlays on one "combined" input. I know some MHL-compatible A/V receivers can do that now.

    I don't know that for certain but if what you say is true it will be a great little device especially if Plex still works with it.

    I don't know for certain either, but I do recall reading something about that. I'm hoping!

    Even still, if NOT, so long as you're consolidated down to one remote (which hopefully can be the TiVo remote which I like to) then it's just a matter of hitting the right Input button first.

    We'll see.

    I'm using Mac OS X 10.7.3 and pyTivoX 1.4.1b. When I download a show from my Tivo and edit it and send it back to my Tivo Premiere, the Closed captioning did not work. I upload the same file to a Tivo Series3 and closed captioning worked. Then for kicks I transferred the file for the Series 3 to the Premiere and it did not work, I then recorded a program using the Series 3 and transferred it to the Premiere and it worked. So is the problem with Tivo, pyTivoX or both?

    Problem is with TiVo Premiere an the v20 software. Captions are there, it just won't display them.

    Hello everyone, my apologies if this has been asked and answered:

    I'm using pyTivoX 1.3 and I'd like to get photos (cover art of movies) into the pyTivoX folder that has the video file in it. My Premier sees the pyTiVoX folders and the movie videos just fine but it does not see the jpg or jpeg cover photos of the movies. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    More apologies if this has been asked and answered (and I've searched):

    Using pyTivoX 1.3, I've learned from the .conf file that pyTivo is aimed at my main network -- meanwhile, all three of my TiVos are on my guest network. Can I redirect it? And is there any way to specify which of the three machines will get the transfer?

    Why are your TiVos on your guest network? :confused: I'd just fix that.

    Otherwise, I'd need to know more about how your network(s) is/are set up. Can the machine hosting pyTivoX even talk to the guest network?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I was thinking to divide the traffic (7-8 wireless clients at any given time), and inasmuch as my Time Capsule offers a second network . . . was I kidding myself?

    My desktop computer communicates with the main network via ethernet and with the guest network wirelessly.
