    Because push uses the HME protocol. Probably designed to protect content downloaded from services such as Netflix.

    If you don't want them so marked, then pull them to the TiVo.

    Actually, since ripping DVDs is illegal, you probably do.

    It has nothing whatever to do with the legality of ripping a DVD or the copyright status of the material. It's HME (used by push) vs. HMO (used by pull). IF you push a recording of your kid's birthday party, it's going to be marked copy protected. If you pull a rip of the BR release of "Rio 2", it won't be.

    When you say "pull", do you mean using the Tivo software to publish it to a Tivo box? Or is pulling content a different program altogether?

    I mean selecting the recording via the share in "My Shows" and initiating the transfer that way.

    I don't understand the scenario you are explaining to me for "pulling" content to Tivo. Tivo doesn't automatically see all the shared content on my network for me to pull it to the Tivo box and then watch on my tv.

    How can I pull content? Using the Tivo desktop software with published folders?

    Lol, they are technically right but I would guess such was offered out of humor and not trolling.

    As described, pushing causes it to copy protected which is due to the manner how pytivo pushes it and lack of other published api's to accomplish a "push", it's not TiVo policing you!

    Setup a share in pytivo that's holds the rip, go to the TiVo and select that share and recording and 'pull" it. No problem that way.

    There has to be at least one share defined for you to push. It should show up at the bottom of "My Shows". Post your pyTivo.conf file (after editing it to remove security data like IDs and passwords). Post it between "CODE" tags to preserve the formatting.

    Ah yes. This sounds familiar. It may be because I always watch tv on my Tivo Mini, and I cannot pull shows from it (to the Roamio). From the Mini I can see the folder but not inside it.

    That makes sense. Another factor to consider when deciding whether to replace a full TiVo with a Mini.

    Yes. Definitely a downside to having a Mini.

    Wait I'm confused. So if I move to a cable company that uses all H.264 or MPEG4 channels, I won't be able to use the Stream even though I will be able to use the TiVo Premiere/Roamio?
