    I posted the inquiry below in the Tivo coffee house forum. A responder redirected me here. I appreciate any insight.


    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 ...

    The version indicates it is pyTiVo Desktop, so you were misinformed. Stick with the original thread.
