    Did you select Wave Mix (or Stereo Mix on my laptop) on this screen?

    My laptop doesn't have Wave Mix, it has Stereo Mix instead. I don't know what your computer has, so you'll have to improvise. ;)

    If you mean, pyTivo with my plugin -- yes, it works fine on a Mac. OS X even comes with Python already installed, as I understand it, although I don't know if it's new enough. (Certainly the version in 10.5 should be.) I installed Python 2.5 on my Mini before I found this out -- it was very simple.

    When I hit play on a playlist from the "list menu" it craps out - same thing happens if I drill another level deeper (the list of songs in the playlist).

    the only way that the playlist seems to work is if I drill into a song and hit play from the Tivo menu.

    Is this a known bug or do I have a configuration error (its a wpl BTW)

    No, it's not a known bug. And please define "craps out".

    OK, here's a version that allows recursive playlists (one inside another), as well as remote playlists (via http). And for good measure, I threw in support for the "Various Artists" ID3 convention (where the artist field says "Various Artists", and the title field has Artist/Title).

    Now the thing is, I'm distributing this as the full pyTivo package, because I made a few more tweaks in plugin.py that aren't in the original master branch (yet?), and I really don't want to have to duplicate that code in music.py anymore. But when I say "the full package", it's only 33K. That's the real size of pyTivo, when you leave out ffmpeg and the Cheetah and eyeD3 libraries. So, if you still need those (I don't -- I get them from my distro), you'll have to get them from a fuller package. I recommend either unzipping this over your current pyTivo, or getting the really complete package here -- just click on the "snapshot" link nearest the top of the page for a .tar.gz of it.

    If you really, really want to run the plugin in conjunction with some other version of pyTivo (e.g., wgw's branch), let me know.

    If that's addressed to me (?) -- no, that's beyond the capabilities of HMO, sorry. The Tivo only requests that info before it starts playing the stream.

    You could do it with HME, though...

    I have worked and worked to get this configuration to work with my online XM account.

    When I fire it up on my Series 2 Tivo I receive this error:

    "An error occured while running the application. The application closed during a read (0x50006)

    Here is what I see when I run runOnline.bat

    "Cookie: usvoCookie=2019943|2|/QRPde6RPv0=|d+sLzDpeVks=|kGmMplX

    Does the schedule file missing affect anything?

    Also, when I run RunOnline.bat, it opens the XM window and I need to press the Listen Now button to get the music running. Although sometimes when I press Listen Now, I get this error:

    "We're sorry. Due to inactivity, you will need to sign in again to listen to XM Radio Online.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Don't think it does. Mine says that too.

    You did put in your username/password into onlineConf.txt right?

    Did you do that step in post #8? You have to comment out with the # the one line and uncomment the other.

    SatRadioAddress=192.168.1.126:48490
    #SatRadioAddress=192.168.1.5:48489

    And put in the IP address of your computer (not your Tivo). Mine is 192.168.1.126 above
