VidMGR

I was looking into taking the plunge into Vidmgr then I remembers why I stayed away from it. This is like reading a foreign language...

https://github.com/jbernardis/pytivo...ter/README.txt

Quote:
1. Go to the directory where you have pyhme installed. There should be a lot of subdirectories here,
one per application. Create a new directory here named "vidmgr"
What is pyhme? Is that the same a pytivo or is this a separate application?

I plan to run this from a debian server even though I am very much a illiterate newbie. However, I have found a savior in step by steps like this http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/wiki/i...Ubuntu_Install. Anyone know of a step by step for VidMGR?

When jbernardis refers to "pyhme", he means HME for Python.

Go to William's git site here, and download the .zip file. Unzip the repository to a convenient directory (I use /usr/share/pyhme). Follow the link William posted above to get instructions for setting up HME for Python. Once you get it working, you can contact me for assistance with setting up a System V init script. (You should have one for pyTivo, as well.) With HME for Python working, getting vidmgr to work is simply a matter of creating a vidmgr directory under the HME for Python directory with all of Jeff's files in it, and possibly entering a line for vidmgr in the HME for Python configuration. Optionally, you can also place some global config values for vidmgr in the config.ini file. This is my setup:

Code:

I downloaded the zip file and placed it in directory /usr/share/pyhme.

I then went to the directory and typed ./start.py and got this;

Code:
root@lenny:/usr/share/pyhme# ./start.py
HME Server for Python 0.19

Registering: clock
Registering: effects
Registering: fontinfo
Registering: hello
Registering: picture
Registering: test
Registering: tictactoe
Registering: transition
I'm not sure if this constitutes working or not since I still don't know what the application does.

Well it's not working because you should see vidmgr in there among the registering apps.

The zip file should NOT be unpacked in the pyhme directory - you need to create a subdirectory named vidmgr and do the unpacking there. You should end up with the following directory structure:

Code:
pyhme 
     vidmgr
          skins
All of the other apps you see registering there (animate, clock, effects, fontinfo, hello, picture, test, tictactoe, transition) are just demos that wmcbrine includes with pyhme to show its capabilities and give some hints as to how to program your own apps.

When HME for python starts up, it looks for subdirectories and tries to run the apps it finds in them. By default it runs all of them, and if vidmgr is set up properly, it will just be one of them. If you do not want to run all of them, then you will need to create/edit the config.ini file in the pyhme directory to list ONLY the apps you want. My config.ini file looks like this:
Code:
[hmeserver]
apps=vidmgr jukebox

Wow was that a nightmare because inside the compressed files were directories like jbernardis-pytivo-video-manager-9cfdb41. Try and manipulate that from a CLI... After I got all done I remembered I could hit the tab key to complete the file names... doh!!!

Now I get this when I start it up. Closer???

Code:

Yes - vidmgr is now running. You should see it al long with all of the demo app on your tivo under 'music, photos, and showcases,

If you set it up correctly, you will see all of your pytivo videos

I just use a lot of asterisks when I'm on the CLI.

I guess I should figure that one out??? I wish I had of started learning Linux at a younger age because I am having to write everything down then I forget where I wrote it...

Ok, I see all those listed under 'music, photos, and showcases, and I pressed thumbs up 3 times then enter. However selecting pyhme vidmgre and it just loops back to the same menu so I guess I have to set something up then I tested the clock which give me a nice clock on the screen that I can't figure out how to get rid of. How do I turn off the clock and how do I set up vidmgr?

I assume it has to do with the below but I got lost on the first sentence. I see the file config.merge but I don't have a config.ini and not sure exactly how or what I'm merging.

Sorry the light hasn't come on for me yet bu trust me after 6 or 7 hits with a big stick I usually get it or I duck...

Code:
4. Configure - you will need to merge the config.merge file that was delivered with this package with
your config.ini file that you are currently using. There are four areas you need to pay attention to:

a) You may or may not have an "apps" line under the heading [hmeserver]. If you do not, then
the hmeserver will start all apps that it finds. If you do, then it will only start the named apps.
So if you do have this line and you do want to run vidmgr, add the word "vidmgr" to this line - no quotes
or commas or other punctuation.

b) you can specify various vidmgr options by putting entries in the [vidmgr] section of the config.ini
as follows:

[vidmgr]
exts=.mpg .mp4 .avi .wmv .m4v

   this names the file extensions you are interested in
      
descsize=20
   this gives the font point size that will be used for the description text. 20 is the default
   
skin=name
   this is the name of the directory under skins that contains all of the png files that are used
   to draw the screen. default is "orig", although the package is also shipped with a "blue" skin
   
deleteallowed=true
   this determines whether or not deletion of videos is permitted. Default is true, set to false
   if you do not want this capability
   
display=value
   determines what information is displayed about videos in the various lists. allowable values are
   episodetitle - displays only the episode title
   episodenumtitle - displays the episode number followed by the title
   file - simply displays the filename
   normal - (default) displays program title followed by episode title
   
sort=value
   determines how listings are sorted:
   episodenumber - sort based on episode number - note this is a string sort - not a numeric sort
   file - sort based on the filename
   normal - (default) sorts based on the program title and episode title

metafirst = title seriesTitle episodeTitle description
metaignore = isEpisode isEpisodic
   these two items determine which metadata is displayed first in the info screen and which is ignored.
   Spelling and case are significant - the name must match exactly. The default values are those
   values given above
metaspace = name name
metaspaceafter = name name
metaspacebefore = name name
   determines that there should be a blank line in the display before or after the indicated metadata items. The
   default is an empty list so there will be no blank lines. metaspace and metaspaceafter are synonyms
metamergefiles = False or True (default = True)
metamergelines = False or True (default = False)
   If there are multiple metafiles that correspond to a video file, these two options control how the data is to be merged.
   metamergefiles = False indicates that the files are not to be merged at all - only the more specific file is to be used.
   If metamergefiles if True, the default value, data from the less specific files is over-written/replaced with data from more
   specific files depending on the value for metamergelines. If metamergelines is False (the default) then a repeating metadata
   key will REPLACE any previous value read. If it is true, the new data will be concatenated to the old value separated
   by a space. Note that metamergelines has NO effect on metadata items that start with a 'v' (vActor, etc). These data
   items will continue to be processed as arrays.
   
   Metadata files are searched for/processed in the following order:
    1) .meta/default.txt
    2) default.txt
    3) .meta/<title>.txt
    4) <title>.txt
   Where <title> is the base name of the video file - or "folder" for directories. DVDVideo shares have a few other
   quirks concerning metadata - see below.
   
infolabelpercent=30
   specifies the width, in percentage of the label field on the info screen. Default is 30, but I have found that
   20 works well for HD screens
   
inforightmargin=20
   specifies the width, in pixels of pad area on the right side of the info screen. Default is 20. 0-100 allowed

thumbjustify=left
   specifies how thumbnail images should be justified. default = left, can be center or right


c) You need to tell vidmgr about your Tivos. For each tivo, you need to specify the name and
the TSN. The format for this is:
[tivos]
tivo1.name=Family Room
tivo1.tsn=TSN1
tivo2.name=Master Bedroom
tivo2.tsn=TSN2

You can have an arbitrary number of Tivos, but as soon as vidmgr detects a gap in the numbering
sequence it will stop parsing. Make sure the TSN's are accurate as this is how pytivo knows which
tivo to push to.

d) You need to tell vidmgr about your PyTivo instances. There are 4 possible pytivo parameters:
- config is mandatory and is the fully qualified name of the pytivo config file.
vidmgr reads this file to determine the share names and locations.
- You may specify an ip address for the machine on which this instance of pytivo is running.
If you do not specify one, the local IP address is used.
- If the pytivo config file names a port in the server section, then vidmgr will
use that port number. Otherwise you need to specify the port number here.
-Finally, if your hme server is running in a different host environment than this
instance of pytivo, then you need to specify the directory separator character for the pytivo environment.

format for specifying pytivo information:
[pytivos]
pytivo1.config=/usr/local/pytivo/pyTivo.conf
pytivo1.ip=192.168.1.201
pytivo1.port=9032
pytivo1.sep=/

You can have an arbitrary number of pytivos, but as soon as vidmgr detects a gap in the numbering
sequence it will stop parsing.

A note about the separator: If you are running both vidmgr and pytivo on the same machine, then this
is not required. However, if (as was happening while I was developing) you are running vidmgr
in a Windows environment (where the directory separator is unfortunately a backslash '\') and
you are running pytivo in a linux environment (where the separator is a forward slash '/') then
you need to specify "pytivox.sep=/". Otherwise, vidmgr will happily send its requests to
pytivo using a backslash in the paths and this will cause pytivo to choke.

=======================================================================================================

Usage
=====

Vidmgr presents a directory tree to you. You can step into and out of directories using the normal
tivo navigation keys. The directory tree is rooted at the list of shares, unless there is only 1 share
in which case it is rooted at the topmost directory of that share.

while on a list of video files, you can also navigate using the number keys. 1 takes you 10% of the
way through the list, 5 = 50%, 7 = 70%, etc. 0 alternately takes you to the end of the list and then to the
beginning of the list

In HD mode, vidmgr will also show video artwork on the right hand side of the screen. Vidmgr looks for
the following file: <full-video-file-name-including-extension>.jpg or, if this doesn't exist, folder.jpg.
The view into which this graphic is placed is 620 pixels wide by 450 pixels high. If your graphic exceeds
those dimensions it will be scaled while maintaining the aspect ratio. Folder.jpg will also be the thumbnail
used for the enclosing folder or share. Also, if there is a folder.txt file in a directory, or in the
subtending .meta directory, its contents - notably the description field will be shown on the display
above the thumbnail.

For dvdvideo shares, vidmgr is totally dependent on accurate metadata. Metadata (and thumbnails) all belong
in the directory containing the VIDEO_TS directory or in a subtending .meta directory. Metadata is processed
as follows. default.txt contains the DVD metadata. __Txx.mpg.txt contains the metadata for title xx. The
title-specific metadata is overlaid on top of the DVD metadata according to the metamergefiles and metamergefiles
configuration parameters. The thumbnail for the DVD is in a file named folder.jpg. In addition, it is
possible to have a thumbnail for a specific title; the name should be __Txx.mpg.jpg. If there is no metadata
for a dvdvideo share, vidmgr assumes that there is only 1 title, and its title is the directory name.

Once you choose a video file, you will be shown some of the metadata associated with that file,
and then have two options - push or delete (delete can be disabled - see configuration above). In
HD mode, this detail will be on the right side of the screen as you navigate through the directories - it
is not on a separate screen

If you choose delete, you will be asked to press thumbs-up to confirm and when you do, the file and
its associated metadata file will be deleted. If you press ANYTHING other than thumbs-up, the
delete is cancelled.

If you choose push and you only have 1 tivo, then it will simply initiate a push to that tivo and
give you a confirmation message. If you have multiple tivos, you need to choose the one you want to
push to from the provided list. After choosing, vidmgr will initiate the push and give you the
confirmation message. The confirmation message can be dismissed with ANY keypress

At any time on any list or on a details screen, you can press the info button to see a complete
list of the metadata. You can control which metadata items appear at the front of this display
and which are ignored (see configuration above). On the info display, you can press left, clear, or info
to return to the screen you came from. If the information does not fit on one page, you will see
paging cues and you can use either up/down or channel up/down to traverse the pages.
PS... the clock eventually went away by itself and I guess I need to know how to start this as a dameon because every time I do ctrl +c to get the CLI back it closes shuts this application down.

Also, my videos are in /video/video if someone can help me point this at them.

Ok, I got it working with this file. I can see I have some tweaking to do but it least I see what I've been trying to achieve all this time.

Code:
[vidmgr]
exts=.mpg .mp4 .avi .wmv .m4v .mkv .vob .tivo
descsize=20
skin=orig
deleteallowed=true
display=normal
sort=episodenumber
metafirst = title
infolabelpercent=30
inforightmargin=20
thumbjustify=left

[tivos]
tivo1.name=FamRoom
tivo1.tsn=xxxxxxxxxxxxx
tivo2.name=other
tivo2.tsn=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

[pytivos]
pytivo1.config=/pyTivo/pyTivo.conf
pytivo1.ip=192.168.0.199
pytivo1.port=9032
Now I guess I have to make a file like this one /etc/init.d/pyTivo except for this application which should get this to start up. I'll have to rest the brain a bit then I can figure this out. Thanks for all the help everyone...

If you don't have an existing config.ini in the main HME for Python directory, then (after placing config.merge in the directory) you should just be able to type

Code:
mv config.merge config.ini
If you do already have a config.ini in the HME for Python directory, then type

Code:
cat config.merge >> config.ini
Then go in and edit whatever sections you need. My config.ini file is this:

Code:
[hmeserver]
apps=vidmgr jukebox

[vidmgr]
exts=.mpg .mp4 .avi .wmv .m4v
descsize=20
sort=file
skin=local
deleteallowed=false
metafirst = title seriesTitle episodeTitle movieYear vDirector vWriter description
metaspaceafter = vWriter description vActor
metaspacebefore = description vActor
infolabelpercent = 15
metaignore = isEpisode isEpisodic showingBits displayMajorNumber
inforightmargin = 100
displaysep==

[tivos]
tivo1.name=LivingRoom
tivo1.tsn=648-0011-xxxx-xxxx
tivo2.name=Theater
tivo2.tsn=648-0001-xxxx-xxxx
tivo3.name=TiVoHD
tivo3.tsn=652-0001-xxxx-xxxx


[pytivos]
pytivo1.config=/usr/share/pyTivo/pyTivo.conf
pytivo1.ip=192.168.1.50
pytivo1.port=9032
pytivo1.sep=/
If you have an "apps=" line, then it will have to contain all the apps you want HME for Python to use. If you do not have such a line, then HME for Python will find every app and use them all.

Most of the [Vidmgr] options can be left at default, but you may want to tweak some of them. For example, I have custom skins in my vidmgr/local directory, so the line

Code:
skin=local
tells vidmgr to look in the vidmgr/local directory for skins to use. Any necessary skins not found there will be taken from the default directory.

The options like metafirst, metaspaceafter, metaspacebefore, metaignore, inforightmargin, displaysep, etc. all set up the vidmgr display the way I like.

You will definitely need to set the TiVo names and TSNs and the pyTivo configs to match your system. Just change the values you see above at the bottom of the config.ini file to match your system.

You don't point vidmgr at your files. You point it toward the pyTiVo server, and vidmgr gets all its info from there.

After that, it's just a matter of getting album art for your videos and spiffing up the metafiles.

Hint: To make gathering the album art easier, here is what I do (modified to fit your system):

First, I run the following command

Code:
find /video/video -iname "*.mp[4g]" -exec touch "{}.jpg" /;
This creates an empty .jpg file for every .mpg or .mp4 video in /video/video if one does not already exist. (Note, it also changes the access time for any such file that does exist, if it matters.) Then I go to http://albumart.org to search for any videos that have zero byte .jpg files. When I find one I like, I click on the little magnifying glass, then right click on the enlarged image and select <Save Image As>. When the save dialogue pops up I click on the filename in the window so it automatically saves it with the correct name.

An easy way to get a list of all the zero length files is

Code:
find /video/video -iname "*.mp[4g].jpg" -empty
You may want to redirect the list to a file like so:

Code:
find /video/video -iname "*.mp[4g].jpg" -empty > <filename>
Or to implement as an easy-to-call script:

Code:
#! /bin/bash
find /video/video -iname "*.mp[4g]" -exec touch "{}.jpg" /;
find /video/video -iname "*.mp[4g].jpg" -empty

I suggest you call me on creating the system V init scripts in /etc/init.d. They are not too difficult, but they can be a bit tricky to get right. I also suggest registering pyTiVo as a service so everything works smoothly. This also is not very difficult, but does require a bit of knowledge concerning init daemons.

Here are my init scripts for pyTivo and HME for Python:

/etc/init.d/pyTivo:

Code:
#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO

        exit 3
        ;;
esac

:
Each of these in turn runs a script which spawns the binary in the background, sets up logging to files in /var/log, etc.

/usr/share/pyTivo/pyTivo:

Code:
#! /bin/bash
PIDFILE=/var/run/pyTivo.pid
RUNDIR=/usr/share/pyTivo
LOGFILE=/var/log/pyTivo.log
/usr/bin/nohup /usr/bin/python2.6 $RUNDIR/pyTivo.py > $LOGFILE 2>&1 &
echo $! > $PIDFILE
exit 0
/usr/share/pyhme/pyHME:

Code:
#! /bin/bash
PIDFILE=/var/run/pyHME.pid
RUNDIR=/usr/share/pyhme
LOGFILE=/var/log/pyhme.log
ERRFILE=/var/log/pyhme.err
cd $RUNDIR
/usr/bin/nohup /usr/bin/python2.6 $RUNDIR/start.py > $LOGFILE &
echo $! > $PIDFILE
exit 0
To register pyTivo as a service, edit the /etc/insserv.conf file and add the following line:

Code:
$pyTivo         pyTivo
That way any init script which requires pyTivo's resources will not be started until pyTivo is up and running, and will be shut down prior to pyTivo being terminated during shutdown

When all is said and done, you will have screens that look like the following (with variations for personal options):

OK, as suggested by lrhorher, I am going to try this. Everyone is willing to help me over the hump- correct?

I will not get to it until this weekend, but I am definitely going to need h-e-l-p.

I am not a developer and I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn Express in a while.

I'll follow this thread's advice and see if I can get it started.

Surely. Well, perhaps not everyone, but the majority of the savvy members of this forum are always prepared to help those who ask nicely and are willing to take a little bit of initiative.

This definitely does not apply to you, but we do get a fair number of self-entitled dweebs who come in demanding all sorts of things, sometimes calling names and in general making a pest of themselves. Those mental arthritics can kiss our...

OK, here is what you should do:
  1. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Exhale slowly.
  2. Take things one step at a time. Get everything working at each step before moving to the next step.
  3. Collect all the tarballs / zipfiles in one temporary place.
  4. Don't get anxious and don't get wrapped up in wanting to be done or in the final outcome. If you find yourself getting uptight, repeat step #1, and keep step #2 firmly in mind. You'll be finished soon enough.
  5. Choose a location for HME for Python, and create a directory specifically for the application. I use /usr/share/pyhme, but you can put it anywhere convenient.
  6. Untar / unzip the HME for Python file into the directory you have created for the purpose. The contents should look something like:
    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x 11 root root  4096 Feb 24 03:33 .
    drwxr-xr-x  5 root root  4096 Feb 24 03:32 ..
    drwx------  2 root root    39 May  4  2009 animate
    drwx------  2 root root    39 May  4  2009 clock
    drwx------  2 root root    39 May  4  2009 effects
    drwx------  2 root root    39 May  4  2009 fontinfo
    drwx------  2 root root    39 May  4  2009 hello
    drwx------  2 root root    39 Nov 14  2009 picture
    drwx------  2 root root    55 Dec 24  2010 test
    drwx------  2 root root    67 May  4  2009 tictactoe
    drwx------  2 root root    39 Apr  5  2010 transition
    -rw-------  1 root root    39 May  1  2009 config.ini
    -rw-------  1 root root 46672 Dec 24  2010 hme.py
    -rw-------  1 root root 17890 Dec 24  2010 README.txt
    -rwx------  1 root root 12933 Dec 24  2010 start.py
    -rw-------  1 root root 55709 Feb 28  2010 Zeroconf.py
  7. At this point, you should be able to run HME for Python by running start.py from the command line. If not, you'll need to figure out why. The clock should show up as an app under the Showcase menu on the TiVo.
  8. If you like, create a custom config.ini file. It is not required, but it can make things a bit more streamlined. Mine looks like this:

    Code:
    [hmeserver]
    apps=vidmgr jukebox
    
    [vidmgr]
    exts=.mpg .mp4 .avi .wmv .m4v
    descsize=20
    sort=file
    skin=local
    deleteallowed=false
    metafirst = title seriesTitle episodeTitle movieYear vDirector vWriter description
    metaspaceafter = vWriter description vActor
    metaspacebefore = description vActor
    infolabelpercent = 15
    metaignore = isEpisode isEpisodic showingBits displayMajorNumber
    inforightmargin = 100
    displaysep==
    
    [tivos]
    tivo1.name=LivingRoom
    tivo1.tsn=648-****-****-****
    tivo2.name=Theater
    tivo2.tsn=648-****-****-****
    tivo3.name=TiVoHD
    tivo3.tsn=652-****-****-****
    
    
    [pytivos]
    pytivo1.config=/usr/share/pyTivo/pyTivo.conf
    pytivo1.ip=192.168.1.50
    pytivo1.port=9032
    pytivo1.sep=/
  9. Stop HME for Python.
  10. Go to the directory you created for HMEfP, if you are not already there.
  11. Unzip / untar the vidmgr file into this directory. This should create a directory named vidmgr. Change to this directory.
  12. Rename the vidmgr.ini.dist file to vidmgr.ini.
  13. Edit the vidmgr.ini file. There are a great many configuration options there. Follow the instructions / tips in the file itself to make your changes.
  14. Run start.py from the HMEfP directory again. Take note of any errors. Vidmgr should show up in the Showcase menu on your TiVo(s).
  15. Tweak the vidmgr.ini file to taste.
  16. When everything is working, you can disable any of the HME apps you don't need either by deleting their directories under the HMEfP directory, or by specifying the apps you do want to load in the config.ini file using the "apps=" directive. If that directive appears in the config.ini file, then only the apps specified by the directive are loaded by HMEfP. If not, then it loads every app it finds in subdirectories of the HMEfP directory.

It's really not that difficult, but post back to us if you have issues.

Under what platform will you be running HMEfP / vidmgr?

thanks..I am sure I can get it up and running with a bit of input. I'll plan to do this weekend as I am out of town on business until this evening. I am in no hurry, I can take time to ask questions as necessary.

My HTPC which feeds my Tivos is running Vista.

OK, I have pyhme running. I can access the animate app, clock,etc. And, vidmgr also shows up. However, when I access it from the tivo I get "please wait" and then it exits, so it does run. However, I have no vidmgr.ini file. I have a config.ini file in the main pyhme directory which appears empty except for the pictures path put in originally by wmcbrine. In the vidmgr directory there is no .ini file at all. I do have the config.merge file in the vidmgr directory.

What should my next step be?

EDIT; I got it up and running by actually reading the readme in the vidmgr files and rereading this thread... **DOH!**

Now there are plenty of settings to add to my config file, but at least it is working. I am sure I will be back with questions but a big THANKS to lrhorer for getting me up and running and to the guys that created hme, pytivo and vidmgr.

I really should have made that Step 2 in the list above.

Indeed there are, although many are a matter of personal taste and look & feel, rather than basic functionality. 'Lots of features here. If you are at all handy with creating graphics, you might look into personalized skins. I created the flat gray skin above. I prefer it to a patterned skin, and the gray provides a very readable background on my TVs.

Indubitably. Ask away. I do recommend reading the README and the text in the vidmgr.ini file first, though.

This may be an odd question and probably just the fact that I got a couple of things out of order when I installed vidmgr- but just for information, I have no vidmgr.ini file in my vidmgr directory, nor did I see the vidmgr.ini.dist file. However, I did have the config.merge file which I used with the config.ini file in pyhme.

Did I do something out of order to kill these files?

I thought this might help the next guy...

Not to throw a wrench into the works, but....

Are you using vidmgr 1.0 or 2.0? Config.merge was part of 1.0. I see you have all HD tivos - if your TV's are also HD, then you really should be running 2.0. It has MANY more features, and I am more likely to add new features there.

Links to both versions (as well as to Jukebox - my MP3 player) are in my signature below.

Crap, I just noticed that. Maybe I will change them this weekend. Is there a quick rundown of the other features?

OK, i'm trying to install this on a synology nas. I got pyhme up and running, but get this after I installed vidmgr:


DiskStation> python /usr/local/pyhme/start.py
HME Server for Python 0.19
Skipping: .git - Empty module name
Skipping: vidmgr - No module named Image
Skipping: picture - No module named Image
Wed Apr 18 15:03:37 2012 Server Starts
Registering: animate
Registering: clock
Registering: effects
Registering: fontinfo
Registering: hello
Registering: test
Registering: tictactoe
Registering: transition

any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?

I believe you need to install the Python Imaging Library (PIL).

OK, now I get this:

the pyhme config.ini is like so:

[hmeserver]
apps=vidmgr

[vidmgr]
exts=.mpg .mp4 .avi .wmv .m4v .mkv
descsize=16

[tivos]
tivo1.name=Basement
tivo1.tsn=xxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

[pytivos]
pytivo1.config=/usr/local/pyTivo/pyTivo.conf
pytivo1.ip=192.168.1.113
pytivo1.port=9032

what next?

It looks like you've got the ini files all combined somehow. The config.ini file for HME for Python should only contain the [hmeserver] section. The [vidmgr] and [pytivos] sections should be in the vidmgr.ini in the vidmgr folder and the [tivos] section should be in your pyTivo.conf.

Well I don't know what VidMGR wants, but that wouldn't be the right format to list TiVos in pyTivo.conf.

Ok, I misspoke in my prior post. There should be a [tivos] section in your vidmgr.ini file (not pyTivo.conf). Sorry about that.
