Lost StreamBaby option on TiVo

Everything was running great.. until.. I don't know honestly.

I have a Tivo Gen4 and a Gen3. Neither can see StreamBaby, but StreamBaby sees THEM.

Here is what I have tried / verified:
1. Ensured my Win7 firewall was off.
2. Changed Streambaby's bat file to use 32-bit Java as per another thread I found:
Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Xmx256m -Xmx256m -jar "%~dp0/jbin/streambaby.jar" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
3. Turned on Streambaby logging.

When I unplug the TiVo network cable and plug it back in.. StreamBaby logs that it can see the Gen3 named .. Upstairs2.

But the TiVo has no StreamBaby option.

Open to ideas. Thanks in advance.

Tivo cannot see Streambaby running on Linux

Hello. I'm having trouble getting Streambaby working on a Linux system. I've got Streambaby running with normal looking startup output, but when I go to "Music, Photos, & Showcases" on my TivoHD, I can't see Streambaby at all. Before trying Streambaby on Linux, I tried it on Windows on the same network connected to the same router and everything worked fine.

Here is the Streambaby output I'm getting on Linux with debugging enabled in simplelog.properties. I get all of this output at startup of Streambaby and don't get anything extra when I try to connect from the Tivo:

Code:
DiskStation> jamvm -jar jbin/streambaby.jar

Please ignore the FFmpegJavaVideoModule warning for now unless you know it is related to my problem. My understanding is that it should not be causing this problem and that I should be able to get Streambaby working even with that warning.

I can enter <IP_address_of_Linux_machine>:7290/streambaby/icon.png in a web browser and it successfully displays the icon. So the HTTP aspect of Streambaby seems to be running fine on the Linux box and there doesn't seem to be any firewall or anything getting in the way.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on with my installation? Perhaps something is interfering with the Tivo "discovering" Streambaby running on the Linux system? I'm not very familiar with Linux, so I might be missing something simple.

In the interest of full disclosure, this is not a typical Linux installation. I'm trying to get this running on a Synology DS109 network accessible storage device (synology.com/us/products/DS109/index.php). This model happens to be running an ARM processor. The Linux installation already has FFmpeg installed and I installed jamVM (jamvm.sourceforge.net) as the Java JRE. So far things seem to be working better than I expected, but now I'm kinda stumped.

I would really appreciate any pointers anyone can provide.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am experiencing a problem when using the Streambaby that comes with pyTivoX version 1.3. On my TiVo Series 3 — but not on my TiVo Premiere or TiVo HD — when I stream video from my Mac running Mac OS X 10.5.8 "Leopard," I see a picture that is shifted to the right so that about 1/3 of the 16:9 picture is chopped off!

The videos I have been seeing this happen with are made by ImTOO HD Video Converter 6 at 960x540 resolution and are intended for Apple TV compatibility. They were originally transferred from my TiVo Premiere to my iMac and edited there. I play them through my TiVo when I want to see the associated .srt files containing closed captions.

The same files show up just fine on my two other TiVos, connected to two other TVs.

My TiVo Series 3 that is connected to a Sony HDTV plays all other TV signals properly. The Sony exhibits no such problem with any of its other inputs, either.

Changing the TiVo's aspect ratio from Panel to Full makes no difference to the weird screen-shift problem I see with pyTivoX/Streambaby videos.

Does anyone have any idea what's causing the problem and what to do about it? Thanks in advance ...

I posted the question above about why some of my pyTivoX/Streambaby videos are getting shifted and/or widened on the TV screen so that a large portion of the right side of the film frame and/or picture gets chopped off. I think I've figured out what the problem is ...

The affected videos were made by ImTOO HD Video Converter 6 with 960x540 resolution and intended mainly for an Apple TV. I used ImTOO's Zoom: Full (keep aspect ratio) setting. It (I believe) encodes the video anamorphically by squeezing it in and letting the output device (OD) unsqueeze it.

To do that it uses (again, I believe) something called "pixel aspect ratio" or PAR to tell the OD the pixels it's getting are not square. The OD is supposed to honor that by widening the displayed frame but keeping the intended less-than-1:1 PAR intact.

The TiVo Series 3 apparently is not properly honoring PAR. My TiVo HD and TiVo Premiere — both of them later models than the Series 3 — apparently do honor PAR properly.

The Series 3, when in its own Panel aspect ratio, keeps the picture squeezed in while cutting off the right side within the confined display frame.

When in its own Full aspect ratio, it stretches the picture way too much, so its right side goes well beyond the right side of the screen.

So the Series 3 knows to stretch the picture, but it does not know that the original pixels were squeezed during encoding and so must have their squeezed pixel aspect ratio honored.

Again, the TiVo HD and the TiVo Premiere handle all of this correctly. The Series 3 does not.

Steambaby works fine but service is a nogo.

Hey guys. When I run Streambaby from the batch file it works fine and runs like clockwork.

When I try and run it from a service though it doesn't work at all.

When the service is running, streambaby.bat says that it's already in use.

I can use the stop and start commands (service) and it still doesn't work.

This is using Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit).

Any thoughts? Because it's working fine from the batch file directly, I'm assuming it doesn't have to do with the java incompatibility.

Hi,

I've been transcoding several of my videos into h264/ac3/mp4 format. However, some of the older videos (30-40 years old!) I have are silent, and don't have an audio stream. When I try to use Streambaby, I see ffmpeg fire up, transcoding the video into mpeg2. To prevent this, do all I need to do is add this to the ini file?

Code:
mp4mod.streamformats=mp4,h264,ac3;mp4,h264,none

My guess is trying to use mp4 container without audio probably just won't work. As a test though you can have Streambaby bypass the normal checks using the .raw & .raw.fmt method. For example if you have a file called test.mp4 rename it to test.raw and then add a file called test.raw.fmt with only 1 line with following mime type:
video/mp4

Thanks! The .raw+.raw.fmt worked well. No transcoding by ffmpeg was attempted.

Is there an ffmpeg setting to specify during transcoding so I don't need "mp4module.interleave=false" in the streambaby.ini file? I receive 0xffff errors if I don't specify "mp4module.interleave=false" with playback of some files...

Setting up debugging in the log may show what the problem is. I have zero experience with Windows 7, but see if you can set the Service to run under your credentials. By default, the older Windows OS' would run under a "Local System" account, which may not have the proper file permissions. The .bat file when executed runs with your credentials, so setting the Service to do the same may clear things up.

Tanuki service wrapper update

I'm not sure if you're taking enhancement requests, but could you update the Tanuki service wrapper to the latest version? That way users could have a fairly simple way to setup streambaby as a daemon/server that starts on boot.

MP4 Embedded MetaData

What have I got to do to get embedded MP4 metadata working again. I swear at some point it worked - but it no longer works. I have tried several methods of writing the tags (AtomicParsley, iTunes, etc) and nothing seems to work. I checked my .ini file for possible culprits but don't see anything there either.

Can anyone offer advice on where I might look next for a resolution.

Thanks for the great resource thread...
I had this problem also. I fixed it by opening the port in Windows firewall (whichever one you specify or default one)

i can't get my 2nd directory (TIVO-RECORDINGS) to read, any help:

here is the config file:
Quote:
#
# ./streambaby --help for more configuration file options
#

dir.1=M:\
dir.1.name=\TCM-MOVIES
#dir.2=L:\
#dir.2.name=\TIVO-RECORDINGS
# Ip address to bind to
# most people don't need to change this.
#ip=192.168.1.37
# port to use
#port=7290
thanks for the help!!

dir.x should be the location of the files you want to serve.
dir.x.name should be the name that you want to have appear in the TiVo.

While there's nothing wrong with have both dir.1 and dir.2 pointing to "M:\", both entries will simply point to the same location.

Here's an example that may be close to what you want to achieve:
Code:
dir.1=M:\TCM-MOVIES
dir.1.name=Movies recorded from TCM
dir.2=M:\TIVO-RECORDINGS
dir.2.name=Other TiVo recordings

I have two external hard drives, one with TCM one with TIVO

I tried this as you said, but still only get the first directory TCM on M, I am not reading the L Directory, do I have this config right?:

I re-author DVDs and select the main movie, making sure not to split the VOBs into 1GB chunks (in preferences). I then change the resulting file's extension from .vob to .mpg and place it in my StreamBaby watched folder and then I can watch it just like a regular .mpg.

Thank for the tip on renaming the file. I will try that but when I used DVDShrink to create a single file I have no audio. I know there are thousands of DVD backup softwares. Any recommedations to make this less painfull?

VOB2MPG will stitch together the VOBs from your (unprotected) DVD. Very simple. DVDFab8 will do that as well... and notably, someone recently posted a simple DOS-level command to join VOBs into a common file.

Re: DVD Shrink... did you select the audio tracks you wanted when you reauthored the DVD?

Hmm, that's odd--I've never had a problem with the audio when using the method I described. I would suggest after dragging the main movie over to the left in the re-author tab that you preview it to see if you can hear the sound...if you can, but then you can't hear it when you try to play it later on with Streambaby, I would think that something was awry with your Streambaby installation. Just a guess, though...I could be wrong.

I am sorry if this has been asked before, but when I use StreamBaby to stream back shows from my PC to my Tivo Premiere, the shows rebuffer pretty much every 15 minutes. Is this an inherent flaw? Is there a workaround? Any likely problems on my end that I could work with? The shows are downloaded, decrypted, and left alone. I believe I had one independently obtained MP4 file that may not have exhibited this behavior, but I will have to double-check that.

I wanted to re-encode everything in MP4 format, but the slowness of that process and the poor results I got have left me leaving things alone for now.

Streambaby has access to a 1.1GB buffer. It is when that buffer fills that you see the interruption.

Perhaps you should download to your TiVo instead of streaming to your TiVo.

I don't know the particulars of your situation, so my advice can only be generic. I use a Mac to run a program called pyTivoX. This software runs as a "server" which allows me to download shows to my TiVo HD for viewing. After download a show is local, and so doesn't need to re-buffer at 1 GB intervals.

I'm not really sure what the advantages or disadvantages of my approach are. You should probably read some other threads in this forum.

I have been intending to do PyTivo, but this was a lot quicker to get working, and other than the rebuffering, it has met my needs. I am guessing that will be the solution. I just wanted to know whether there was any point in trying to fix this on Streambaby. Thanks.

It's not a Streambaby bug but rather a TiVo limitation. It's the same method that TiVo YouTube HME application streams to your TiVo and there is probably a dedicated disk partition being used which defines the buffer limit. Probably the only way to solve this issue is perhaps using WinMFS type utility that increases the particular disk partition that is used for this buffer. For the adventurous types that are familiar with WinMFS type utility it may be worth exploring the different partitions for an S3 TiVo for example to see if there is one that is ~ 1GB in size or so.

FWIW, you can watch while pytivo is transferring... so although you're not technically "streaming", there's little difference other than the program is being stored on your tivo hdd, and there's no disruption for "rebuffering".
