Hey Jan. I'm kind of a newbie to all this stuff myself. It's pretty straight forward to get PyTivo working if you follow the step by step instructions, but anything off the beaten path and I'm pretty useless. There are some really advanced users here that helped me get set up the first time. I'm sure they'll be around to help you too. It's an awesome program. I've never had a single problem with it once I got it installed.

Thank you for the heads up. Just downloaded it.

Launcher App

I'm installing pyTivo according to bareyb's instructions. However I'm having trouble with Fofer's pyTivo launcher app. After downloading it and trying to run it, I get an error message saying that it is "damaged and can't be opened."

Any ideas?

Otherwise, pyTivo is running fine.

Yes thank you, that seems to be it. Assuming that the app is not really "damaged", is there a way to get it to work?

Got it to work by changing the security settings in System Preferences.

Thanks for pointing me to this.

FYI: Updated the information on the Main Pages to reflect the new GUI and the ability to download H.264 files natively without pyTiVo having to convert it. It's SMOKIN' FAST. I downloaded an hour and a half H.264 in about 20 seconds.

This is interesting stuff.

So is there a way to stream videos to the Tivo or can you only download it (and presumably transcode it at the same time?)?

Does ffmpeg support all the codecs which might be used in mkv and other formats or is it only mpeg, as the name suggests?

Is this accurate? Seems too good (easy) to be true.

What about .dylib files?

Has anyone gotten this to work? I followed the instructions on the wiki, and it will work for me one time. If the computer is turned off and then back on, pyTivo does not start. I have a similar situation, and it would be really convenient to start on boot...

That way my account has the little orange checkmark next to it and always stays logged in so that Plex Media Server (and a couple other servers) can be running which serves up our movies to the Roku. This is rarely a problem as long as I get myself logged in first whenever the iMac reboots.

In setting up our new TiVo Premiere, I am wondering whether I could place the pyTiVo launch file into the /launchdaemons folder instead of /launchagents and have it launch on boot instead of on login. Admittedly, I don't have a very deep understanding of how UNIX logins and daemons work so I could be imagining a solution that won't work.

It's certainly not a deal-breaker, but it would sure be nice not to have to worry about logging in my account any time we re-boot.

Thoughts?

Thanks so much Barey, for taking the time to do this fabulous tutorial. It was really helpful

I wonder what I am doing wrong
Ctivo works fine for me.

I got PyTivo up and running, but my Movies folder on my Tivo has no movies on it.
Do you have any idea what I could be doing wrong?
