I pushed several like this, they got metadata from the mind server and grouped with others in the Scorpion series. Before trying with the minimal meatadata, they did just as yours, all taking the metadata of the oldest push on the tivo for that series. I also have a couple episodes in that group that were pulled. The only difference I can see between the pulls and pushes now is that the pushes are copy protected.
I retried it one more time with an abbreviated metadata file. It still failed. However, there's one more variable that might be causing me grief and not you. I don't know if the titles from TvDB matches the data in TMS. However, in my previous testing, I used 4 different series as a hedge against this, but they could all have issues too.

Oh well, for now, I'm content with Pulls vs having bad metadata. I look forward to a fix as it is definitely inconvenient.

So much for that theory. I sent multiple episodes of a series today, carefully waiting for one to complete before queuing the next one and they all got the same episode title. TiVo really needs to fix this problem.

We have two TiVos - a TiVoHD and a Roamio Plus. Using pyTiVo for several years, and beyond one issue it's working well. Only issue I have is that on the Roamio the "view" for my NAS drives that pyTiVo is sharing keeps changing from group view to file view. This works fine for our Movies drive, but the "other" category has too many individual files so pyTivo dies. If I go into the movies drive first and change back to group view, everything works fine. But next time I try and view the pyTiVo drives, it reverts back to file view. Not sure if this is an issue with the Roamio or pyTivo....???

It's TiVo. My Roamio does the same thing. I just push the number 2 on the remote and the folders come right back.

Known issue with the current Premiere/Roamio s/w. Not a pyTivo problem nor is there likely a way to kludge it. If you look, you'll note that the same problem exists when viewing the THD from the Roamio. Until it is fixed, what you can do is select a share (or the THD) that is small enough so that it doesn't cause pyTivo to crash and, if groups are disabled, enable them by entering a "2", back out, and then select the large share. Do not go to TiVo Central in between. That will cause it to revert to "Groups Off" for shares and pre Series 4 TiVos.

What might also work is if you enter a 2 after selecting a share but before pyTivo crashes. I don't have a share with enough recordings in it to test this. Plus, if groups are still on, this will turn them off.

While pytivo may not be able to do anything about the grouping error, it should not crash, no matter how many files are on a share.

Please post the log file for the crash and hopefully wmcbrine will be able to have a look and kill the bug.

Right, there's no hard limit on the number of files; but without grouping, pyTivo might choke on some specific file that it doesn't reach when folders are on (until you enter the folder where that file is).

Also, there's a timeout on the list, on the TiVo end, which is easier to hit when grouping is off. In this case, you'd just get a "no files found" type message. But it should work if you then exit and re-enter the share.
