    On a Mac, right click on the tivo.bundle, get info, at the bottom it will show users and groups. You may have to Unlock to change this. so, unlock, it will ask for username and password, then change or add user and group. click the lock when done.

    Does the plugin only work on Mac plex media servers?

    I don't know how it is packaged but if it opens up as a folder just change the name to Tivo.bundle and drop it into the plugins folder in your plex server application and restart the server.

    Yup...I renamed the folder and dropped it in. The plugin populates but I cant get anything to play. I was hoping...

    Has anyone had luck?

    It really depends on the version of Plex- server and client, you are running. I have moved to the 64 bit version of both and now tivo-plugin no-longer works for me. I was hoping some Python developer would pick up this abandoned plugin and update it but so far no-one on the Plex forums seem to be interested. The original author is nowhere to be found.
    It is up for grabs. Anyone interested here?

    I can never get it to populate in the channels list and I have many supported and unsupported channels.

    1. unzip the Tivo.bundle-master-zip file
    2. rename Tivo.bundle-master folder to Tivo.bundle file and put it in the plug-in folder (same place as all of my other channels - user\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server\Plug-ins)
    3. Recycle Plex Server

    Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?

    Has there ever been an updated plugin for Plex? I still have the old one, of course it no longer works, but I'd love to get my TiVo's integrated into my Plex clients.

    Unfortunately, I think it's pretty much dead.

    At the moment it is only for Linux, but it is back to life.

    The majority of the plex channel was rewritten. I wish I knew how to use the TiVo To Go API to seek into a video and just transfer a part of it. And it would be great if you could start a transfer of a recording that is in progress. Every time I try the TiVo API responds with the fact it is not authorized.

    Clearly the TiVo Stream is capable of doing all of the above, but the APIs are not publically exposed.

    Enjoy. :)

    How difficult would it be to make this work on a Mac since it is related, a derivative of BSD?
    And did you post this in the developer section of the Plex Forum?

    I have it partially working on OSX already. Finding the TiVo via bonjour just doesn't work yet. The downloading and immediate streaming is functional though. [ The preliminary code for OSX is not yet checked in. ]

    Yes, this project was posted on the plex channel forum.

    In the near future I expect it will be working on OSX.

    If I might suggest...

    https://github.com/wmcbrine/pyzeroconf

    I use this in all the projects in my sig to find TiVos, on all platforms. It will run whether or not there's already a system service binding port 5353, and it implements the whole zeroconf/rendevous/bonjour stack in itself, with no dependencies outside the standard library.

    I also have non-zeroconf fallback methods of TiVo detection which you can check out in the projects in my sig.

    Thanks for the suggestion. This looks perfect and should make it a whole lot easier to support windows as well. I will take a look at integrating the zeroconf.py directly into the channel plugin.

    Thanks!

    Thanks to the suggestion from wmcbrine to use zeroconf.py, the OSX support is completed for the TiVoToGo plex plugin.

    github.com/tivoguy/TiVoToGo.bundle

    Enjoy!

    Would I be able to use this plugin with the Plex server running on my Netgear ReadyNAS??
