You're certainly welcome.

Yes, they do, provided of course it was 5.1 on the DVD in the first place. I have some DVDs that are not 5.1 or even 3.1.

Have you tried any HME functions, like Galleon or vidmgr?

Yeah, that could be a bit sticky, since the MAK is tied to the account. This is something TiVo will have to fix on their end, at least in terms of it working at all. They will have to allow either you or Grande to add a TiVo that is not on your account.

Now that streaming is coming soon with 20.2, is there any hope that pyTivo will be able to stream? I'm not sure how it works, I guess it's showing up to the Premieres as a Series 3? If so, any way to work towards streaming support?

We don't really know anything about how streaming is implemented yet. So... maybe?

If you mean pyTivo, no -- from the TiVo's perspective, it looks more like TiVo Desktop (with some aspects that are more like a real TiVo, and with unique elements of its own), but it doesn't actually masquerade as anything; it reports itself as pyTivo. (I could explain this in great detail, but it's boring.)

Awesome. I don't know Python, but I'm generally a pretty adept technical type. Recently got back into TiVo when I got a Premiere so I'm looking forward to continued development and hope to help however I can

wmcbrine, let me know if that works for you or I can email you the file. I didn't realize the code option would mess up the formatting.

The code tag didn't mess up the formatting. Anyway, yes, that was good enough.

I'm having a problem now with pyTivo and my Tivo Premiere. I have the latest 20.2 update, and am using the McBrine fork of pyTiVo. My video shares are taking a LONG time to populate quite often, sometimes 10-15 minutes. When I enter the menu to my video shares, it'll appear as if the list is blank for this length of time. Eventually they appear. Pushes are also taking about 10-15 minutes before the blue light comes on on the TiVo. Any ideas? Here is my tivo.config:


[Tracy]
force_alpha = true
type = music
path = \\NAS\Public\Music

[_tivo_SD]

[Videos on NAS]
force_alpha = true
type = video
path = \\NAS\Public\Videos

[_tivo_HD]

[Server]
tivo_password = xxxxxxxxx
tivo_mak = xxxxxxxxx
ffmpeg = C:\Program Files\pyTivo\bin\ffmpeg.exe
temp = C:\Users\Public\Documents\pyTivo
tivodecode = C:\tivodecode\tivodecode
togo_path = \\NAS\Public\Videos\Tivo Recordings
tivo_username = xxxxxxxxxxxx
port = 9032

My TiVo is placing files transferred from my pyTivo share into the "My Shows" list based on the date/time of the file, not the date/time it was transferred. I'm not sure what changed, they used to show up at the top of the list. I am using the McBrine fork of pyTiVo from a couple weeks ago.

I've searched this forum, but haven't found an answer, so I thought I would post.

Other than a minor mod to start the ffmpeg process in a "below-normal" priority, I've not touched the code. I was about to mess around with it to try and force the current date on the files, but figured I'd ask you first. Thanks.

There is a thread posted in the wrong forum about this:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=482327
In short 20.2 software on Series 4 units broke sending extended metadata to a TiVo (among other things).

Two quick questions guys:

1) This has never happened to me before. I pulled a program using KMTTG and encoded it in mp4, putting it in my shared VIDEO directory. It's an episode of a series I am behind on. OK. So, now, I am trying to use pyTiVo to pull it back. Can't. It says that it's copyright protected. What the heck?!!! I've never seen this before! Do I need to re-encode this file or something?

2) Also, I can't get my PHOTO and MUSIC shares to show-up. Other than Identifying them as <photo> and <music> do I have to do anything else in config file with them? (No problem with any of my video shares. I got 4).

Thanks.

pyTivo gives that notice for anything it can't transfer, for whatever reason, because that's basically the only mechanism available for reporting an error to the TiVo. Usually it means that ffmpeg reported an error when it tried to read the file. So, yes, it sounds like there's a problem with the file, at least from ffmpeg's perspective. I'd have to see the log/console output to tell you more.

I'm assuming that you don't actually have the angle brackets in your pyTivo.conf.

Usually when people say this, it's because they're looking in the wrong place. Video shares appear at the bottom of the NPL, but music and photo shares appear under "Music, Photos, & Showcases" (SDUI) or "Music & Photos" (HDUI). (These names vary slightly depending on the TiVo software version, but you get the idea.)

On the second one (and since I am using your branch of pyTiVo) - Thanks! - you're probably right! I'll go look.

On the first one, I'll run a diagnostic, OR re-encode!

I'm having a hard time getting this pytivo thing to work. I've dl python 3.2 and wmcbrine's zip info and have the pydoc server running. After reading through these posts there are other settings that I need to change but I don't know where or how to do them. Help!

I'm on win7

I think things went south when you DLed python 3.2. I haven't installed pytivo from scratch in a while, but these were some pretty straightforward installation instructions for windows. <removed link>

Yes, pyTivo is for Python 2.x only, now and for the foreseeable future.

I don't recommend those instructions, I'd suggest these instead:

http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/wiki/i...ns_for_Windows

I mean, if you must use Windows.

I created a folder in pyTivo called install/bin and installed the ffmpeg and the tivodecode and tdcat files in it. Is this the correct way to do it?

When I point my browser to http://localhost:9032

This is all I see... no the pyTivo webconfigurator

This is a pyTivo server

No Admin plugin installed in pyTivo.conf
If you wish to use the admin plugin add the following lines to pyTivo.conf

[Admin]
type=admin
Video shares:
MyMovies

I still can't get the web configuration up but I do get the push to Tivo buttons. I checked Tivo and it sees these files but I get and error when I try to push them to tivo. when I click on Tivo to start the movie it just goes back to the title I clicked on and won't start, presumably becuase it didn't get pushed?

I added an exception in windows firewall...but since I'm seeing the files in on Tivos now playing I assume the firewall isn't the problem.

No -- just "bin". Where are you getting "install/bin"?

Of course you can call it whatever you want, as long as you point to it in pyTivo.conf. But "bin" in the one that's recognized automatically, so you don't need to specify the paths.

You're using a very old version of pyTivo.

6. Extract the ffmpeg.zip and overwrite the old ffmpeg.exe in \<install folder>\bin\ If the directory does not exist, create it.

7. To properly handle .tivo files grab the special version of tivodecode: http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/forum/download.php?id=196

8. Drop the tivodecode files into \<install folder>\bin\.

Which version is newer of pyTivo? Have link to it?

<install folder> refers to whatever folder you installed pyTivo. For example, if you installed pyTivo in C:\pyTivo then <install folder>\bin would be C:\pyTivo\bin

Thanks that's what I ended up doing. Still won't upload to tivo however.

To get the latest version of pyTivo, use the "My pyTivo fork" link in wcmbrine's sig line. He's the developer.

I am having a problem running as a service. Everything works fine when I run "pyTivo.py". However, when I run as a service it sees the app in my Now Playing but does now see any files. Ideas?
