It appears to have been an issue with Windows 8's new sharing scheme. I've "unshared" everything and it's working now

I am having an issue pushing a couple of shows in a folder.

This is the only message after I queue the episodes.

The only relevant thing here is the one thing you haven't shown, the filename. In this case, it's a fancy quote character " ’ ", which I would replace with " ' ".

But this makes me think I need to revisit the general issue of character sets under Windows. (Pretty much everything else uses UTF-8 now, which makes this much easier.)

Thanks. It looks like I had an extra file that used the special character and not the actual video so it was throwing it off. Deleted those, restarted PyTiVo and it is processing now. I had to restart PyTiVo because the show just sat in queued status and wouldn't try to process when I pushed it again after removing the misnamed file.

Is there a way to specify a separate directory for the .pyTivo-temp files? It looks like they're always created in the same directory as the media.

I tried copying some episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine from my archive on my computer back to my TiVo, and whether I would push them or pull them from the TiVo itself, some of the episodes wouldn't work - I'd end up with a file on my TiVo that has nothing in it.

I sat at the computer now and pushed one (or tried), and the same thing happened, only this time I captured the errors. A few remarks.

1) MICHAEL is the name of my TiVo (my brother's idea of a joke, and I've never changed it)
2) This was an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine that my TiVo recorded itself, and I don't decrypt the files, this is a .TiVo file we're talking about here.

I've copied things back to the computer before, and some of the other Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes I have saved copy fine. About half of them do not. No idea how to get around this for now. Any thoughts?

Code:

You'd be better off decrypting them. I'm actually a little confused as to what's happening here -- I'd like to see more of the log, and preferably, with debug on. But, in general, .TiVo files can't be pushed as-is -- only pulled -- so they have to be decrypted to push them. Normally, pyTivo would do this on the fly. Your output here looks like FFmpeg trying to read an encrypted .TiVo file -- which it can do, to a limited extent, and which pyTivo does for the purpose of getting info about the file -- but it looks like this was an actual attempt to reencode, which it shouldn't have been doing at that point.

OK, I'll try it again from the TiVo side and see what happens.

Let me know what other log I need to get at, and I'll be happy to pass it on.

Not a different log, just a more detailed version of that one, by turning on the "debug" flag. (Also, don't edit it down.)

I'll have to give that a try in the morning. Not near computer, and by the time I get home to where all this stuff is, it'll be after midnight, too tired.

Tkx for helping, I'll have something else tomorrow.

Edit: NOTE.. I captured that out of the DOS window that is always running when I'm running pyTiVo. Does it save its log on the HD anywhere? If so, I'm not aware of that (as I've never had need to look at it before).

It depends how you set it up. The command window output is fine... just scroll back a bit more.

Googled for it, and found this to put in the pytivo config file. It seems to work. I'll give the videos a test in the morning when I'm more awake.

Code:
[loggers] 
keys=root 

[handlers] 
keys=console,rotfile 

[formatters] 
keys=basicform 

[logger_root] 
level=DEBUG 
handlers=console,rotfile 
#handlers=console 

[handler_console] 
class=StreamHandler 
formatter=basicform 
args=(sys.stdout,) 

[handler_rotfile] 
class=handlers.RotatingFileHandler 
formatter=basicform 
args=('C:\pyTivo\debug.log', 'a', 10485760, 5) 

[formatter_basicform] 
format=%(asctime)s %(levelname)-5s %(name)s: %(message)s

Finally got around to figuring this out. Under Mavericks, I had to turn off Zeroconf in pyTivo's settings, in order to run it at startup as root. It may be because I have Virtualbox installed, which introduces a second (virtual) network adapter.

Created the plist file and moved it to /Library/LaunchDaemons, etc. It works perfectly once, but if I power down the machine pyTivo does not restart. I also tried Lingon X to create the job, but had the exact same results. Any help from a Mac expert would be appreciated, I know I'm missing something small.

Your output here looks like FFmpeg trying to read an encrypted .TiVo file -- which it can do, to a limited extent, and which pyTivo does for the purpose of getting info about the file -- but it looks like this was an actual attempt to reencode, which it shouldn't have been doing at that point.
OK, here. I cleared out the log, turned on pyTiVo, and then attempted to transfer one of the files that failed. After that, I then transferred a file that worked fine. Then closed out pyTiVo so I could mark this as it's own event log (so to speak - that make sense?)

The thing about this is that I've been sending .TiVo files back and forth for quite some time now, this is the first I've run into programs that it is having problems with.

Sending as a file attachment, as the debug log file is like 96k. Too large to post as text here.

Is there any way to remotely delete a file from a pyTiVo share? I noticed when I press delete on the remote I get a "bong" sound, so I'm guessing no delete command is even sent to the pyTiVo server. Is there maybe a separate HME front end for pyTiVo that allows remote delete?

Hi -

I'm new to PyTivo. I tried PyTivoX, but I was told to get plain PyTivo in order to be able to stream from my Mac to my TiVo Elite.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what files to download to get PyTivo installed and this thread is really difficult to search through.

I was led to this page to download:

https://github.com/wmcbrine/pytivo

What am I downloading from there? Just the PyTivo.py file?

I appreciate any and all help!

Thanks...

You need to download the entire package. The best place to start is actually here.

Nevermind. I found the big ZIP icon that I was missing. I've got the installer now. Thanks!

Hi everyone -

Thanks for the help. I have pyTivo running on my Mac and am able to transfer files to my TiVo Elite.

Thanks again. This is a really cool piece of software!

Me again, all my folders/files keep disappearing from the "My Movies" webpage/folder

Here is my log

Code:
When I start up pytivo and they've disappeared, I get this:

After changing any folder parameter in the configurator and changing it back to the initial setting, they reappear and I get this log:

Streambaby is a HME app that allows files to be deleted. The streambaby INI file needs streambaby.delete = true to enable.

Very odd situation. I d/l'd a recording from my Roamio. Using VideoReDo, I edited it and saved it as an H.264 mp4. Using the same project, I also saved it as an H.264 mkv. pyTivo sees the mkv as 3h37m and if I pull it back to the TiVo it is flagged as partial and the progress bar is 3h37m long with onkly the first 43m filled in green. Meanwhile the mp4 shows up correctly as 43m.

VideReDo, PowerDVD and MPCStar all report the mkv as 42m33s. If I push it back to the TiVo, it is a full recording of 43m and that is also what the progress bar indicates.

While not really a problem per se, it is a bit annoying and curious.

Question - I have been using PyTiVo for several years with no real issues. Can't get transfers from the TiVo to my PC working, but that's not really an issue.

Here's my question - we're buying a new Roamio Plus. Already have a TiVoHD. Can we use PyTiVo with both units?

Sure it is. Tell us more.

Of course. And you shouldn't have to do any additional setup. Just allow a few days for the new TiVo to be fully activated.

do I have to do anything to my PyTiVo setup so it recognizes both units?

As for the issue "sending" from the TiVo to my PC, it's never been a priority so I really haven't worked on it in years. I'll look at it again once the Roamio arrives.

For our family, PyTivo has really been for streaming/loading videos to the TiVo to watch like our movie collection or old TV episodes we have collected on our NAS.

I didn't have to do anything special to get it to see both of my Tivo's on the network the first time I started it up.

I've got a weird problem that I'm hoping somebody will know how to figure out.
For a couple years I've been using handbrake to make m4v files from my DVDs and pull them from pytivo to my premiere. They used to play fine, but I got a new computer, installed handbrake on it, and now find that if I use any trickplay except pause, the video jumps back several minutes.
I'm guessing I have accidentally changed some setting in handbrake that causes this, but I can't tell what. I tried using ffprobe to dump info from a old m4v that works normally and from one that has the problem, but nothing is jumping out at me as significantly different, so perhaps somebody could suggest ffprobe options to get more information.
Any suggestions?

Thanks for the input from everyone. Got the new Roamio Plus setup last night and as everyone said, it just worked with our existing PyTiVo setup. The happy discovery was that even though the TiVo documentation said that only wired ethernet or MoCa would permit transferring shows from our old TiVoHD to the new Roamio, they seem to transfer fine via wireless.

Now if Time Warner would have just sent us the right cablecard, we'd be all set, but of course they ****ed up and sent a one-way card. So we have to wait for the replacement....

All cablecards are one-way (or at least that's how they're used in tivos, you need a tuning adapter for the reverse channel communication)... do you mean they sent you a single-stream card? I'm surprised they still have any.
