    Thank You for your reply.

    I am running Windows XP.
    FYI:
    To do the upgrade:
    I downloaded the new version
    Uninstalled the old service via the bat file in the old extras folder
    Unzipped the new version
    Installed the service via the bat file in the new extras folder
    Copied my Streambaby.ini file to the new version's folder.

    This issue with the directories is resolved, but i'm getting a java error noclassdeffound error on class org.lobobrowser.html.dimimpl.HTMLDocumentImpl. The videos show up in the list on my TiVo, but when I try to play them it hangs after this error.

    I installed streambaby-20120828-2030.

    streambaby.ini:
    dir.1=D:\Olsen's Pogoplug\Video
    dir.1.name=Olsen's Pogoplug/Video

    tivo.username=****@****
    tivo.password=****

    From my Tivo HD, I see Streambaby and attempt to push a video to the Tivo. In response, I get a Push Failed! message on the TV. The messages on the server are:

    Initializing StreamBaby v20120828-2030...
    10/21/12 10:33:44 Listener: added factory
    10/21/12 10:33:44 Main: streambaby ready & listening.

    10/21/12 10:39:05 Listener: connection to receiver closed
    10/21/12 10:39:05 Factory: HME receiver disconnected


    Notes:
    1. **** designates an obscured username or password.
    2. I was happily using pyTivo but encountered a problem with Push, which lead me to try out Streambaby. Since I'm having trouble with Push using both pyTivo and Streambaby, the problem bay lie elsewhere.

    Any ideas what the problem might be? Thanks.

    Can you use streambaby to stream the video? When you click on play does the video start playing on your Tivo ? Also try logging in to tivo.com by copying and pasting the userid and password from streambaby.ini


    For other users , just looking at your post it appears you should be able to push videos to the Tivo since all you need to do is add to the streambaby.ini the lines
    tivo.username=yourusername@somewhere.com
    tivo.password=yourpassword

    Pushes have been ht or miss lately, no matter what s/w you use to queue it up. There appears to be a problem with the TiVo mind server. Both of my pushes last night worked the first time, but other people are still having problems.

    What are the requirements to get the push functionality in Streambaby to work?

    I have several Series 3 Tivos. I've added these entries to streambaby.ini:
    tivo.1=DenS3
    tivo.1.username=myemail@gmail.com
    tivo.1.password=mypassword
    tivo.1.tsn=64800118xxxxxx
    tivo.2=BedroomS3

    When I attempt to push a video on screen I see the error "Push Failed!"
    In the Streambaby command window I see the error:
    10/26/12 19:07:30 InternalPush: Failed to login to tivo-push-control: myemail@gmail.com, mypassword

    If you have any suggestions or advice to get this working I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    Is that the user ID and password you use to login to tivo.com?

    Oh, and try making it tivo.username and tivo.password

    Yes. I tested it and was able to login to the website with that user ID and password

    Take out the .1 from username & password. It should be tivo.password & tivo.username.

    Did you kill streambaby and start it again after making the change to the .ini file? It only reads settings upon startup.

    Yes I've closed and restarted Streambaby every time I modified the .ini file.

    Got it to work by downgrading to Java v6. I did not realize Java v7 was installed.

    Thank you for a great new version of StreamBaby!!!!!!!

    ADD ON

    This is a continuation from my solution in March.
    see original post
    http://code.google.com/p/streambaby/wiki/getting_started

    ++++change extraction location and change path++++++++


    C:\Users\myusernamegoeshere\Desktop\bin

    How can I run Java applets on Windows 8?

    Java applets can only run in the Desktop screen of Windows 8. The Start screen in Windows 8 does not support the Java Plug-in which is needed to run Java applets.

    When you first use streambaby a file named searchNstreambaby.ini is created for the search features of streambaby. This file can be modified as explained by the comments:

    #
    #Settings for Search portion streambabystream
    #
    # This file is created automatically if the entry dbname.main= is not found in a file

    #
    # main database (If this database does not exist it will be created and filled by all dir.xx= entries in streambaby.ini which do not have passwords
    dbname.main=C:\Users\MyUserID\dbmoviesfileb
    # Add databases you have already created using Med's movie manager program such as for your DVD's
    dbname.1=C:\Users\MyUserID\mydvds
    dbname.2=C:\Users\MyUserID\kidsdvds

    # Example of how to require a password before a database is used
    dbname.3=C:\Users\MyUserID\parentsdvds
    dbname.3.password=onlyme,momspassword
    dbname.4=C:\Users\MyUserID\dbase_for_my_stuff
    dbname.4.password=onlyme
    # When using streambaby on your TIVO, to enter a password move where you select what to look for such as TITLE and
    # press the clear button

    #
    # Directory to search for cover images (The program will first look in the directory the show is in)
    CoverImagesFolder=C:\Users\MyUserID\movies\TheCovers
    #
    # If a streambaby.ini file is found then the dir.xx entries will be read from it
    # and only the dir.xx.dbname= entries for directories with dir.xx.password= entries need to be in this file
    # Example of directory which requires password to access
    dir.8=C:\Users\MyUserID\My Videos
    dir.8.dbname =My Videos
    dir.8.password=onlyme
    #
    # To create databases containing information on password protected directories:
    dir.9=C:\Users\MyUserID\abc
    dir.9.password=onlyme
    dir.9.dbname=C:\Users\MyUserID\dbase_for_my_stuff
    # note the database name used above must be the same as a dbname.xx for example
    #dbname.1 =C:\Users\MyUserID\dbase_for_my_stuff
    #dir.9.dbname=C:\Users\MyUserID\dbase_for_my_stuff
    # Require a password before certain channels are shown in the search
    restrict.1.Channel='comedyhd','comedy','msnbc'
    restrict.1.Channel.password=onlyme,momspassword
    restrict.2.Channel='lifetimehd','lifetime','own'
    restrict.2.Channel.password=onlyme,momspassword,teenspassword

    # Require a password to limit the type of MPAA ratings shown
    restrict.1.Mpaa='RATED MA%','RATED NC17%','RATED R%'
    restrict.1.Mpaa.password=onlyme,momspassword

    restrict.2.Mpaa='RATED PG-13','RATED TV-14'
    restrict.2.Mpaa.password=onlyme,momspassword,teenspassword


    # format for storing lists which can be used in searches

    # Did you note the ITEM names are in uppercase?
    list.Channel.Premium='OWN','TCM','FMC'
    list.Channel.womans='LIFETIME HD','LIFETIME','OWN','FMC'
    list.Channel.kids='ABCFAM','ABCFAM HD','NICK','NICKTOONS'

    list.Mpaa.kids='RATED G%','RATED PG%'
    list.Genre.romantic='%ROMANTIC COMEDY%','%ROMANCE%

    # require certain queries to be included in all searches
    query.8.andor=and
    query.8.type=File Location
    query.8.hasnot=has
    query.8.text=mpg
    #query.8.password=onlyme

    # above will always be included as the 9th item in the query and can not be changed unless the password
    # has been entered AT SOME TIME (could have been several days ago) before the search

    # Inital settings for the screen labeled extra are maintained in the xxxx.working.ini file
    # These settings can be changed from the tivo by pressing enter, enter to get to the second section
    # down arrow or channel down to change the category, clear to start changing the placement,channel up to move placement up,

    To assist in troubleshooting the search function in streambaby a sample database is included with the program. Change the searchNstreambaby.ini entry for dbname.main to point to this file which is named dbmoviesfileb an example is:
    dbname.main=/home/MyUserID/streambaby-20120828-2030/extras/dbmoviesfileb

    Then restart streambaby

    Still having issues with Streambaby.

    In summation, Streambaby was working on my Win7 box and then one day it decided to stop. Streambaby starts fine but it doesn't seem like Tivo actually connects with it when it searches for apps (i.e. Streambaby just sits saying ready and listening).

    Streambaby works on my laptop and another computer which are both wireless. The computer that doesn't work is connected via ethernet. I wouldn't think that's the problem but at this point....

    Any ideas? Something in the router? Java update hosed me?

    Streambaby will only with with Java 1.6 or 1.5 and perhaps only 32 bit, so if the Java you are using doesn't meet those requirements that could be the problem. I think there's been posts in this thread indicating that Java 1.7 (AKA Java 7) doesn't work.
