    Ok, so it's showing a list of all my AVIs now. But when I click 'Watch on This TV' it gives the error that the file wasn't found.
    And damn, I've been waiting for something like this for a long while now... :)

    Any errors in your error log? I'm imagining there's some characters in your filename that the TiVo doesn't like.

    Just this, but this is from the previous install earlier, not the latest fix.

    Hrm, well I'm headed home, I'll run some tests on my box there. I'm thinking there's possibly still one hardcoded path in there somewhere. I'll try and post a fix once I find it. I'll post here when I do.

    Like I said, thanks for all the testing guys! :D

    Pipakin,

    Nice work.

    I just wanted to offer some assistance in your testing/QA.

    I installed TiVoDotNetSetup-0.2.0a-fix2.msi . I opened the admin page and pointed to a video directory. I ran down to the tivo and it showed up fine.

    A couple of suggestions.
    1. a setting for video file extensions to allow.
    -- Because Thumbs.db etc. are showing up on the Tivo; have not tested other files
    -- And by the way, I accidently clicked on thumbs and its pretty much locking up the tivo. lol waiting to see what happens before I reboot it.

    2. option to scan sub-folder of video folder
    -- would be very nice, as all of my vids are in there own folders.

    1. Whoops...It should have excluded that file...hrm...(And you'll need to reboot your TiVo. Trust me).
    - The CVS version has an extension list. I'll post a release later tonight.

    2. It should scan subdirs. Is it not?
    - Couldn't find anything to make it NOT scan a subdirectory. Just let me know if there's another issue here.

    pipakin, First off thanks for working on this... I have many .avi files on my computer that I would like to watch on my Tivo. I am having a bit of trouble, I have the latest download, I used the C:\DotNotTivo\Videos . My Tivo sees the directoryand the files I dropped there. Problem is when I go to transfer I get a message to look at my "To do list " history and it told me that the file was not found on Tivo.net server.....any advice?

    gah...I bet it's the comma in the file name. I need to escape those URL's better.

    For some reason I can't get onto the administration page with firefox or IE. The service seems to be running when I check services.msc. Also, http://www.canyouseeme.org/ says that it sees the port open.

    I'm using my laptop on a wireless network with my tivo sharing the same 2wire dsl router. Anything I should try?

    Hrm. You're on the same computer as is running the service, I'm assuming? (It won't allow remote admin).

    Do you get anything at all? or Page not found?

    I get a 404 error. I also tried my IP from my router, and from the IP that I got from that website

    And yes, the server is running on my laptop.

    This is going to be awesome if I can manage to get it running.

    It may be being blocked by a firewall application. Make sure ports 9032 and 9033 are open... hrm...

    I have the windows firewall turned off completely. Is there another way to see if my ports are letting stuff through?

    EDIT: here's my router's settings, am I retarded?
