    I'm looking at the TTG XML interfaces on the new Roamio's and several things don't seem to be working right --

    This is even using their web interface in a browser.

    1) The channel logos don't show up. I get a not available. When I go to the URL manually, I get an error saying "Resource Not Found"
    2) When going to nowplaying/TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=%2FNowPlaying, I get the folders view. The TiVo Suggestions folder shows "130 items". When I go to the folder URL itself (/nowplaying/TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=%2FNowPlaying%2F0), it says 0 items.

    I see the same results trying to get the XML back - no items returned there.

    Anyone else seeing this behavior? Anyone figure out how to get the icons and suggestions XML?

    "Suggestions" via TTG has been broken for a while; that started with some version of the Premiere software (and the Premiere is still afflicted). Not that anyone cares, but the "HD Recordings" folder shows the same behavior.

    Were channels logos previously available via this interface? I don't even remember that.

    I'm not sure - I'm a new TiVo user starting with the Roamio :) Based on older threads, it looks like the ChannelLogo-<number>.png's were working at one point, at least on older devices.

    They changed the way the channel logos worked back when they released the Premiere units. It use to require a minor software update just to add channel logos. Now they do it via their Mind interface.

    Thanks for clearing that up. TiVo clearly doesn't care about their devices' web interface. If only they made it easier to access the Mind one :/

    It appears that you could recreate a folder view by querying with Recurse=Yes and matching Links/CustomIcon/Url == urn:tivo:image:suggestion-recording
    and matching SeriesId on the rest.

    I came looking for a direct "folder view" of Suggestions, though. I guess not?
