OK, I don't think I have Zeroconf working. I have windows 8 and opened up port udp 5353 for incoming & outgoing. I have it running as a service. Ideas what I can look at?

Also, does my config look OK?

Code:
[Server]
port = 9032
ffmpeg = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe
tivodecode = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\tivodecode.exe
tdcat = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\tdcat.exe
tivo_mak = xxxxx
tivo_password = xxxxxx
tivo_username = xxx@xxxxxxxx.com
togo_path = D:\Media\Videos\
ffmpeg_pram = -threads 2 -async 1
debug = True

[Videos]
type = video
path = D:\Media\Videos

[_tivo_HD]
bufsize = 4096k
max_audio_br = 448K
width = 1280
height = 720
video_br = 16384K
max_video_br = 30000k

It's fine, although your "_tivo_HD" section is redundant (you're setting everything to the default values), along with some of the other lines. I'd just have it like this:

Code:
[Server]
tivo_mak = xxxxx
tivo_password = xxxxxx
tivo_username = xxx@xxxxxxxx.com
togo_path = D:\Media\Videos\
ffmpeg_pram = -threads 2 -async 1
debug = True

[Videos]
type = video
path = D:\Media\Videos

So, I shouldn't include these paths?

ffmpeg = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe
tivodecode = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\tivodecode.exe
tdcat = D:\Media\pyTivo\bin\tdcat.exe

Those lines aren't needed. The bin dir is the default location where pyTivo looks for those files (assuming that your pyTivo is actually installed in D:\Media\pyTivo). There's no harm in specifying the locations, so I wouldn't say that you shouldn't do it. It's just unnecessary.

Anyone having issues with pulls? After I updated pytivo I now get an authentication error when pushing.

Pushes have been a widespread problem since Friday. See this thread.

Well since pushes have been down for a few days and I have a few vids I wanted on the tivo, I decided to re-enable the video shares in pytivo so I could pull....

Now I get the darn ! icon and the shares are greyed out. Tried several zeroconf settings and addresses, rebooted pytivo and the tivo several times. I get one or two of the smaller shares showing up sometimes but mostly I cannot pull or push now....

Ideas? Did others get the broken video shares fixed somehow? I read the other thread too and no answers there either.

They're not broken, just look weird in the NPL. Still accessible.

No, the ones with ! are greyed out and when selected return an error that the list could not be obtained. One or two (depending on when I check, they come and go) show a PC icon and are not greyed out. Those return a list from pytivo.

Anyone know how to get these working again? I will admit its been well over a year since I had video shares enabled for pulls as I always use pushes....until now.

Huh. All I can say is that they work for me and have all along. This may be a totally different problem. What does it look like in the SDUI? What platform are you on? I'm on Win2K (no comments, please).

Tried in the SDUI. The icon is normal but selecting my moves share results in the same error:

The Movies PC's Now Playing List could not be displayed because it is unavailable. Press LEFT to return to the My Shows list.



The share displays fine using the web interface to pytivo so its not an error in the directory naming.

pytivo is running on a Windows 7 64bit system as it has for some time now.

Update.

Back to the HDUI, all but one share are greyed out but they all display a directory EXCEPT my movies directory. That share only contians 3 videos with 3 txt files for metadata and a number of subdirectories.

pytivo will not display that share on the tivo. Displays fine in the webUI.

This is using the latest pyTivo and running as administrator?

Well, unlike with TD, there's no need to run pyTivo as Administrator, as long as it can access the files and ports as whatever user you run it as.

I agree that jcthorne's is a different problem from the general exclamation-point icon issue. It kind of sounds like a basic connectivity problem. But I'd want to see the log from pyTivo.

Still trying but new problems.

Downloaded todays master from wmcbrine and installed. Started pytivo and again attempted to go to my shows and the pytivo movies share. This time the share opened (even though it still shows a ! and is greyed out).

Now I select a video and tell it to transfer.....pytivo attempts to transfer the mp4 with h264 and ac3 audio and fails for too low of a bandwidth setting.

I see these errors:

Please use -b:a or -b:v, -b is ambiguous

Bit allocation failed. Try increasing the bitrate.
Audio encoding failed (avcodec_encode_audio2)

Bit allocation failed.  Try increasing the bitrate.
Audio encoding failed (avcodec_encode_audio2)
Why is pytivo trying to re-encode the audio at all? Is the bitrate failure for the audio or the video?

Tried on a couple more videos, including one that I previously pushed fine and get the same errors although at different points in the transfer. None seem to complete.

Huh, that's a new one. Could you post your pyTivo.conf?

P.S. What kind of lunatic made a file with 3478 kb/s video and 640 kb/s audio?

It exceeds the maximum allowed rate, which is 448K by default. You can change this in the .conf file (although really, it should be changed as the default for Premieres -- which kind of implies killing it as a .conf option (see here)).

Audio.

This (attempting to use only 64 Kbps) is a bug either in pyTivo or in your .conf file, which is why I'd like to rule out the latter.

Audio.

This (attempting to use only 64 Kbps) is a bug either in pyTivo or in your .conf file, which is why I'd like to rule out the latter.


my pytivo.conf:

Code:
[_tivo_SD]

[Server]
tivo_password = xxxx
par = 1.0
tivo_mak = xxxxx
ffmpeg = C:\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe
ffmpeg_wait = 10
tivodecode = c:\pytivo\bin\tivodecode.exe
tivo_mind = mind.tivo.com:8181
zeroconf = Auto
togo_path = Z:\Temp Storage\Need Editing\
debug = True
tivo_username = xxxxxx
nosettings = False
port = 9032
ts = on
beacon = 255.255.255.255

[_tivo_746000xxx]

[_tivo_746000yyy]

[_tivo_746000zzz]

[_tivo_HD]
max_audio_br = 640K

[Thornoli_Photo_Albums]
type = photo
path = Z:\Photos

[Thornolis Music]
type = music
path = Z:\Music

[Movies Alphabetical]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = Z:\Video Archive\Movies Alphabetical

[Documentaries]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = Z:\Video Archive\Documentary

[Concerts]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = Z:\Video Archive\Music & Concerts

[Live Theater Performances]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = Z:\Video Archive\Live Theater Performances

[Television Shows]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = Z:\Video Archive\Television Shows

[Tivo Transfers]
force_alpha = True
type = video
path = C:\Download\Transfer
Up until yesterday I had the specific photo share under each of the tivo sections so that the video shares did not show up. This caused zeroconf to be disabled.

I guess that would be me and the result of my default x264 settings of constant quality factor of 20.0 as set in meGUI. Some videos come out significantly higher than that depending on content. This particular encode was only 24fps which helps (1080p24). Are others using significantly lower crf values?

I use 17 in Handbrake. I don't know if the CRF values track one-for-one between Handbrake and MeGUI, but if I were to guess, I would expect they do.

Thanks, I will give lower values a try and see if I can tell any improvement in video quality. I can say I have been using 20 for a LONG time and somewhere along the line a revision to x264 made the resultant files much lower bit rate for the same crf than before. As I really did not notice a reduction in quality, I left things alone.

Back to pytivo, I tried removing max_audio_br = 640K from my pytivo.conf and tried pulling again. It does but reencodes the audio down to 448 but at least it transfers so we are on to something.

Should not 640k be the default max bitrate for Premieres? that is why I had stuck that parameter in the conf many moons ago, right after I upgraded from my tivoHD.

jcthorne, I'm unable to reproduce your problem. I get the correct behavior with max_audio_br = 640k in the _tivo_HD section and a file with 640k AC3 sound. And I see no errors in the code. I'm drawn towards outré explanations, such as that you haven't shown me the actual pyTivo.conf being used, or that your installation is broken somehow, perhaps by mixing code from different versions. I don't know. Sorry.

I can only offer a trivial and irrelevant observation about your pyTivo.conf. These lines:

Code:
par = 1.0
ffmpeg = C:\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe
ffmpeg_wait = 10
tivodecode = c:\pytivo\bin\tivodecode.exe
tivo_mind = mind.tivo.com:8181
zeroconf = Auto
nosettings = False
port = 9032
beacon = 255.255.255.255
all specify the default values, so they're redundant.

I truly appreciate your looking into this. Think its time after so many years and upgrades to blow away the pytivo directory and start fresh. Including building a new pytivo.conf file with only the currently required options. Thanks again for all you do on pytivo.

Thanks. Do let me know if that fixes it. I'm not optimistic. This is really bugging me... what am I missing?

Don't know if this is a problem or not, but did note that jcthorne had 640K set in his pytivo config while you said you tested 640k. Is ffmpeg case sensitive?

For some reason I can't post in the pytivo forum but I wanted to answer your question, some of us still use CRT's and have slow networks so I reduce the picture quality so I can watch shows real time. I don't notice the reduction because as I said, we have all CRT's. In fact, someone just gave me a 36" CRT so I have one on standby in the event one of my current sets fail.

Can you make some kind of advanced configuration where those of us who don't need HD can reduce the workload on our networks? Not to mention my old 486 video server that tuns pytivo...

Just reporting back. Still have problem with ! icon and shares greyed out but they all work anyway now. And pulls work as h.264 video without transcode now.

I blew away my pytivo install and started fresh so it was something mucking up the works with many many over writes of new pytivo code over the years. I have no idea when pulls quit working for me as I had not used them in a long time. Over a year.

Anyway, with current code and a less cluttered conf file built from the conf.dist file, I am working again. And pushes are back as well thanks to tivo rebooting the mind server.

Thanks everyone. Sorry to have hogged so much bandwidth. Looking foreward to the next big thing....
