    I’m using pyTiVo Desktop 1.6.16 on 2 Windows 10 computers. I have 2 problems.

    • pyTiVo Desktop does not see a TiVo 2

    pyTiVo Desktop “sees” my TiVo 3, but is does not “see” my Tivo 2. If I drill down to Settings | TiVoToGo, the TiVo 2 does not appear in the TiVos list. There is no control within pyTiVo Desktop that would allow me to configure an unseen TiVo. KMTTG recognizes both my TiVo 3 and TiVo 2 units. This issue of recognizing my TiVo 2 occurs on both Windows 10 computers on which I have installed pyTivo Desktop.

    How can I get pyTiVo to recognize my TiVo 2?​
    • Tivo 3 and TiVo 2 see a phantom share
    I originally named my video share <name> Video. I then deleted this share and created a new share <name>_Video. Now both <name> Video and <name>_Video appear in the Now Playing list on my Tivo. Restarting pytivop Desktop and the TiVo unit have no effect the phantom share, <name> Video.

    What do I have to do to make this phantom share go away?
    Thanks in advance ...

    I don't use Windows, but this is the pytivo thread..
    pyTivo - Transcoding server

    at least that's for the pytivo UNIX version.. maybe there is another thread or you could ask there anyway..

    Dan's version seems to be usually covered here.

    Easier to use pyTivo

    You are correct. I was going to make suggestions, but I think the TiVo numbers aren't labels but the platform series.

    Phantom share. Have you ever used the old version of pyTivo? You might want to reboot everything.
