This might be a dumb question but this seems like a functionality that could be easily built in to pytivo proper - is there some reason this is not done? It seems like core functionality to me - without proper matadata files pushed to the TiVo are barely usable.
Not sure that building it into pyTiVo is a good idea. Some people build or modify the metadata by hand or using other s/w. Some use pyTiVo w/o metadata. Most of the people who use "Push" instead of "Pull" don't really care about most of the metadata (at least as seen by pyTiVo) since very little of it gets sent to the TiVo on a "Push".
It would be nice if the pyTiVoMetaThis application "owner"would become actively involved again or allowed someone else to take over, or at least another fork. I doubt that either of those options would involve me. He didn't much seem to care for my coding technique and "pythonized" (his word) my other fixes prior to incorporating them into the release version.
