Queston on pytivo? I think?

I have an HP LX195 running WHS. I believe I am running pytivo because I see the option of transferring my content from the server to my Premiere under My videos.

Is there a way to issue a command from my computer which would send my content from HPLX195 to my Premiere.

At the moment, I can only figure out how to do this from the Premiere itself.

Please let me know. Thank you.

pyTivo must be installed -- it isn't distributed with other software or pre-installed on any device. If you don't remember installing it, you can't be running it -- unless you're having some memory problems.

Yes, you can. I have pytivo on a pc and on my WHS. I have assigned IP addresses to each, so I can use shortcuts to push content from any machine in the house.

I see the directory on my WHS with Pytivo. What file in the pytivo directory should I open to access the main screen?

Open a browser, enter "localhost:9032" (without the quotes) in the location field.

I've got it running. Thanks.

Any idea on how long it would take to transfer a 3GB file from my WHS to the Premiere?

It seems awfully slow to me but I have nothing to compare.

Please let me know. Thanks.

Well, there are a heck of a lot of variables involved in that blanket query, but if your I/O and transport systems are in decent shape, not too long. Even a 720p MPEG-II file can transfer at about 35 - 40 Mbps to the Premiere. At 30 Mbps, 3G would only take 800 seconds, or about 13 minutes. An h.264 / MP4 file can run flat out at over 90 Mbps, or perhaps a bit over 8 minutes.

I am over 4 hours so I must have worst of breed in all cases you describe. It does work though which is a plus!

Four hours! Holy moly! That's less than 2 Mbps. You have something seriously wrong, there.

Need more information. Latest pyTivo? Latest ffmpeg? Format of source file? What kind of network connections? What kind of CPU?

LX195 = 1.6 GHz Atom. I don't think the speed is surprising.

Even if he is recoding, that seems excessive, although you do have a point if these are not MPEG-II files. Transfers with my Series I and a 500 MHz Pentium IV were faster than that.
