I'm having the same issue with pyTivo console displaying the string index out of range error, all of such was just out the blue. Was there any resolution to this?

Pytivo seems to be working ok, just receiving the series of the message repeatably.

Quote:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:\pytivo\Zeroconf.py", line 772, in run
self.readers[socket].handle_read()
File "D:\pytivo\Zeroconf.py", line 826, in handle_read

File "D:\pytivo\Zeroconf.py", line 406, in __init__

File "D:\pytivo\Zeroconf.py", line 501, in readName
length = ord(self.data[off])
IndexError: string index out of range
Tried the Bonjour browser to display the Bonjour service broadcasts on my network but I'm not sure what I'm looking for as all my Tivos appear including a HP print server that I have.

Is there a way I can have ts on on one share and it off on another? I really want to have the same path shared both with ts on and ts off. I want ts on to attempt to transport that way so I get captions.. but many shows won't transfer properly that way (the converter from mpeg back to ts doesn't work)..

I used to have a 'global user setting' of ts on.. So yesterday, I tried to remove that one, and make two separate shares for the same path, one with user setting ts on, and one without it.. But the user setting of ts on didn't seem to 'stick' since the recordings had no captions from the one with the setting supposedly on. Again, it DID work when I had that as a global setting.. (and turning ts to 'off' on one of the ones with the global setting on didn't work either.)

..and yes, I did save all changes and restart pytivo.. from the settings web page.

It's only a global setting. I could change that... in the meantime, one thing you could do would be to run parallel pyTivo instances. Just give them each different ports and share names.

But I'd prefer to address "the converter from mpeg back to ts doesn't work". Please tell me more about this.

I described the issue previously in this thread:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...0#post10103200

but I admit I didn't go back and do the *proper* test someone suggested (manually converting a file). I typoed the extension when I tried, and hadn't gotten back to it.

My "low tech" way of just turning on/off TS was working for now (and actually, I was also sometimes just transferring to my Tivo HD instead, which "just works" for captions.. sigh.. "progress")

Making folder for my Tivo

I have a question about pytivo. This is what I would like to do. I have about 50 shows of jag and counting. They are about 2 to 4 shows being down loaded to my tivo a day. The shows are in order by date. 1 show could be season 5 episode 4 the next one could season 8 episode 1. The third could be season 6 episode 12. The next day the will follow in order with the time slot. I would like to down load and arrange them so that will be sorted in order so I do not have to page down then go up to the next show that in order.
How can this be done?

How are they getting to the TiVo? Push or Pull?

No... just put "time: oad", exactly like that. In the default.txt.

Using a text editor (notepad will do), create a file and put into it the line:

Code:
time : oad
save the file as "default.txt" to the folder on the PC where you have your videos.

What model TiVo do you have?

Note: Any recordings pulled to the TiVo will be in a different group from those pushed. They should in fact end up in the same group as those actually recorded.

I am a newbie about this. The only thing I know is that I down load the files ether in mpg or tivo format. I know that is it in mpg there is no information of the program and tivo it does. This metadata thing is new to me.
When they said just add "time : oad" I do not know where to put in. You wrote to use notepad To do th editing I did what you said I entered "time : oad" and saved as default.txt. I did a pull and it was the same as the tivo. I did a push and the shows went into a new tivo folder with out the episode but was not in order.

See here for an explanation of metadata files.

Ok. There is nothing you can do about .tivo files. As the name would imply, the default.txt file is for defauts. Since .tivo files have the metadata embedded, including the time the recording was made, it doesn't come into play.

About the only thing you can do is convert the .tivo files to .mpg but do not extract the metadata into the corresponding .txt file. Then use one of the available tools to create the metadata file. pyTivo will then use the default.txt file.

So I have to enter the data for each episode. I thought I could just enter ether the date or season and episode and be done with it.

Well, there's nothing you can do for .tivo files. It always uses the embedded data. Even if there is a .tivo.txt file for it, it is ignored.

For other video formats, including .mpg, as I said there are tools you can use to generate the metadata files. You do not have to create them by hand.

I handle this using a script that does all the detail work for me. It does a lot of other things, but one of them is naming the files and marking the video as a TV series.

First of all, I use KMTTG to transfer the videos, convert them to .mpg, and download the associated metafiles, all to a temporary directory. After editing and converting the files to h.264 using VideoRedo, I run a script called "Verify", which allows me to audit / implement all the genre fields and then edit the series info if the script detects that it is a TV series. All I have to do is enter the season and episode number. The script then makes the necessary modifications to the metafile and renames the video using the format:

<Series Name> - <Season> - <Episode> - <Episode Name> (Recorded <DOW Month Day, Year <StationID>)

Here is the snippet of code that does the work:
Code:
echo $newName | grep -q "-"
if [[ $? -ne 0 ]]
then
        echo Done!
        exit
fi

echo -n Enter Series Season \& Episode? \(N\)
tput cub 2
read response < /dev/tty
if [[ "$response" == "Y" || "$response" == "y" ]]
then
        echo
        echo -n "Season Number:  "
        read Season < /dev/tty
        echo -n "Episode Number: "
        read Episode < /dev/tty
        SeriesPrefix=${newName%-*}
        SeriesSuffix=${newName#*-}
        SeriesName="$SeriesPrefix- S$Season E$Episode -$SeriesSuffix"
        [[ -a "$newName" ]] && mv "$newName" "$SeriesName"
        [[ -a "$newName.txt" ]] && mv "$newName.txt" "$SeriesName.txt"
        [[ -a "$newName.jpg" ]] && mv "$newName.jpg" "$SeriesName.jpg"

        grep -v "$newName" "$logFile" > "$logFile.tmp"
        echo "$SeriesName" >> "$logFile.tmp"
        sort $logFile.tmp > "$logFile"
fi

echo Done!
Here is a sample of the script running:
Code:
RAID-Server:/usr/share/VideoScribe# Verify nov

Reading this again, I'm not sure I follow. What do you mean by "...page down then go up to the next show that in order"?

Also, where, exactly, do you want this arrangement to be implemeted? What app are you using to push the videos to the TiVo?

Sorry about not being clearer. What I meant by the page down Is that i have to page all the way down the page to get to the bottom of the list. I then have to up one at a time to get to version and episode that in order. I have season 1 to 10 but not in order.
I have about 50 episode of Jag and Dr Quinn medicine woman that I have recorded. The shows are not recorded in order of the season and episode. I was wondering if their was an easy why of transferring them back to the Tivo that will be in the same folder but in order of season and episode no. I do use Kmttg to download the programs.

I'm not entirely sure that is the case, but you may be right. That said, if the files are properly named, the OS should sort them correctly on the source directory, allowing them to be easily queued in proper order for delivery back to the TiVo for utilities - like pyTiVo - that rely on the sort from the OS. (Well, under Linux, anyway. I think it is the same for Windows, but I wouldn't know for certain.) Utilites such as vidmgr, which have database sorting of the files based in metadata or other criteria can sort the source directories any way they like. The bottom line is, if they show up in the desired order in the transfer software, then they will show up in the same order on the TiVo, as long as the user selects the transfers in the same order as displayed.

On the TiVo, or on the app you are using to transfer back to the TiVo?

Meaning they were not recorded / transferred to the TiVo in order, yes?
If you are using pyTiVo to transfer the files back to the TiVo, then it relies on the sort provided by the OS to list the files for push back to the TiVo. In order for this sort to be in-line with season and episode order, you will need to rename the files so they are naturally sorted by the OS that way. See above.

If you would care to use a utility such as vidmgr to transfer the videos, then it can, if you choose, sort them in any number of ways irrespective of the file names.

Yes, I have every episode of JAG, and they were not recorded in order.

Well, there isn't a trivially easy way, but with a little bit of effort it can be arranged. One way, as I mentioned, is to name the files in episodic order. This can be either Season / Episode, or just numerical by episode.

From the OS:
Code:
/RAID/Recordings/JAG/JAG - S07 E09 - Dog Robber (Recorded Fri Feb 01, 2013, AXSTV).mp4

Set it to download the metafiles from now on. In the mean time, I suggest you create metafiles for the existing shows using metagenerator.

If you want to investigate vidmgr, it can sort the list in a vast number of different ways, including by OAD, file name, genre, actor, director, writer, etc. Once sorted, simply select the videos to transfer in screen order. Unfortunately, it won't do a batch transfer like pyTivo can.

lrhorer,

There is absolutely no way to do what he wants done using push. For the episodes he has already recorded, yes. For newly recorded episodes, no.

Caddyroger,

Why just leave them on your computer until you want to watch them? Then you can organize them any way you wish.

Edit: Are you aware that you can use the "skip" button to immediately navigate to the bottom/top of a list?

Funny, I do it all the time. In fact, I did it on Saturday. My sister wants to watch Falling Skies in the living room, so I transferred all this season's episodes from the theater to the server, trimmed the commercials, ran the Verify script against the videos, and pushed them back in episodic order. Now they show up on the living room Tivo in a separate folder, in episodic order, oldest at the top. Is that not what he wants?

In this context, what is the difference between an "already recorded" episode and a "newly recorded" episode? We seem to be talking about shows he has on his pyTivo server, ready to be pushed back to the TiVo.

A fair question. I suspect the answer might possibly be he wants to use push, but doesn't want to have to sit at the computer (or use a tablet device) to select the videos to watch. Certainly I don't want to have to gather the family together, traipse over to a PC with everyone looking over my shoulder, and try to select a movie to watch. Once again, vidmgr would be a solution to that, since one uses vidmgr from the TiVo.

Lets say he pushes all 50 episodes of JAG he currently has in the correct order. It will be a mixture of seasons. Then he records an episode of say, season 5 that he does not have and goes through the same process. It will show up at the top of the list, not in the middle where it belongs.

That's true, yes, but in that case he could simply delete all the episodes on the TiVo and re-send them. You are perfectly correct there is no way for a user to sort the listing after the videos have been transferred to the TiVo.
