    I have approximately 20 videos stored on my NAS (Apple Time Capsule) and have made the path available to TiVo desktop (Mac version). It works well for a while, then after a few sleep/wake cycles, I can no longer access the videos from either of my TiVo Premiere's. If I stop the service from within TiVo Desktop then restart it, all works well again for a while. I'd hate to have to repeat this process every time I want to watch one of these videos. Is there a more reliable method?

    Thanks!

    I have a PC and was having the same issue.

    I solved it by turning off the 'sleep' cycle on the computer.

    pyTivo for the Mac has StreamBaby built in too.

    How hard is this to install and set up? Is there a GUI or is it all command prompt?

    Thanks!

    That's "pyTivoX", not "pyTivo for the Mac".
