Had to reinstall Windows and trying to re-set up pytivo.
It has been a long time since last install and I forgot the struggle it was (for me anyway).
I have the pytivo server running (in the command line box, I start it when needed and don't run it as a service).
I am also able to see the pytivo control "page" at localhost 9032, which has the Web configuration, to go, and Video Shares/My videos selections.
I have put a video into my videos folder, and pytivo sees it. pytivo also sees both of my tivo boxes on my network.
My problem is that pytivo will not send the video file to my tivo box. when I press the "send to tivo" button, I get the following error text:
No option 'tivo_username' in section: 'Server'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files\pyTivo\plugins\video\video.py", line 341, in Push
m = mind.getMind()
File "C:\Program Files\pyTivo\mind.py", line 285, in getMind
username = config.getTivoUsername()
File "C:\Program Files\pyTivo\config.py", line 62, in getTivoUsername
return config.get('Server', 'tivo_username')
File "C:\Python26\lib\ConfigParser.py", line 541, in get
raise NoOptionError(option, section)
NoOptionError: No option 'tivo_username' in section: 'Server'
I'm thinking I have failed to configure something properly. When I read the read me notes I come across mention of the creation of a file called pytivo.conf. This file is not in my installation folder, although there is a pytivo.conf.dist file. So I created this file by making a copy and then renaming the pytivo.conf.dist. I moved this file into the program files and thought I had done something right because a "my movies" was now listed on the configuration page, but then clicking on my movies or my videos got a failed to connect screen.
Anyway, that's where I stand. I would appreciate anyones help with this that has a better understanding of setting up pyTivo than myself.
