pyTivoX dumb question

I am trying to set up ANYTHING on a Mac to push video with folders to a TiVo Bolt.

I played with pyTivo, and I can see the files (created meta files with pyTivoMetaThis) select the files, hit push, and nothing. Terminal output seems to run FFMPEG but way too much details.

I keep reading the pyTivoX can push. It is a very simple app, and I can pull from it to my TiVos but I can not find a button to PUSH files

what am I missing?

Push is done from the web interface: http://localhost:9032/

Thank you - I also missed putting username and password. No need for Media Access Key I assume.

I now see the directories, and I am attempting a push..... fingers crossed.

The MAK is only needed to pull recordings from the TiVo to the computer.

OK, after hours of building different installs, and chasing meta data files, etc, I thought,
Hey, why not try to push to one of the other TiVo's......

Now, does anyone know why a Bolt would not permit files to be pushed verse a Romio that will? The installs on the Mac are fine, it is the Bolt that will not 'accept' the files?

Situation

- 3 - TiVo's Premier, Romio, Bolt
- All on same Subnet / broadcast domain / network
- 2 iMac

To keep it simple (though I think I have every TiVo open source on on of the iMac)

- I have pyTivoX on both iMac
- I can see all TiVos
- From Bolt I can see both iMac's shares via pyTivoX
- From Bolt I can 'pull' files from ether iMac
- From Romio I can see both iMac's shares via pyTivoX
- From Romio I can 'pull' files from ether iMac
- From one of the iMac (just did not test the other) I can push to Romio (ffMpeg is running hard and I see the file on Romio)
- I can not push to the Bolt from ether iMac.

I went into a loop assuming it was ffMpeg or pyTiVo or other setups, but I now have a know working push to Romio, yet Bolt does not want to receive the files. pyTivoX does not even spin up ffMpeg when I try to push them.

Any thoughts on trouble shooting this?

Go here: https://www.tivo.com/tivo-mma/dvrpref.do

and make sure "Video sharing" and "Enable video downloads" are both checked.
