So I downloaded the new version of "Network Remote for TiVo" from the Mac App Store. Even though I had renamed my previous version "TiVo Remote," the Mac App Store knew I had a previous version of this great app installed, and asked me if I wanted to download this new purchase to replace it. I clicked to confirm. And then it downloaded it, and replaced my old version with the new one. It even retained my name change, it was still on my system as "TiVo Remote." I found that interesting.
I then replaced the included icon with the one I like to use instead, the familiar TiVo guy icon. I'm sure there are copyright concerns why you can't use that for your app, but I like it on my system as it's easier to recognize in the OS X Dock.
That said, I now have the same issue I had before, where when I launch it, it asks (every time) to confirm my sole TiVo's IP address. I tried the below (as it worked before) but now, with the Mac App Store version, I can't edit the Network Remote.pyw file. I'm guessing that's because these files from the Mac App Store are more protected (ie: permission locked or something) so customers can't change them.

Is there any way to add some setting or preference, that lets the user select an IP address and remember that setting across launches? (Perhaps if there's an IP change and it can't find that TiVo it would prompt the user again?) Or maybe just a simple options screen where this value can be set.
Because more often than not I just want to launch this app quickly, to pause/unpause the TiVo. This extra step slows that down and feels clunkier than it was before. If not, then I'll probably end up having to revert back to the DIY version on wmcbrine.com.
Thanks again for all your great work on this, wmcbrine.
