    You should be able to download the file now. I use a free file hosting site that only allow 10MB of tranfers per 24hr. Needless to say it was all used up around 7:30 last night. If you still can't get it just message me your email, and i'll send the file to you.

    I would be happy to host this on my server, in addition, I made a small change to allow each Tivo the ability to have it's own TotalGB variable so that people with multiple tivos of different sizes can make use of that. What do you think?


    cheers...

    Media Access Key. This is the long number you had to put into TiVoDesktop to transfer shows. You can find it under My Account on tivo.com, or on your DVR under System Information.

    Make sure the extension on your modified and saved version is XHTML. Often times the text editor you use will change it to TXT.

    It should be local for a number of reasons:

    1. It has your MAK in it and you don't want others to get that
    2. People on the internet can't contact your tivo anyway so it's useless to them.

    Does anyone know the actual number to out in the variable for an 80 hour tivo?

    Since I can't get the HME apps to work I would like to use this as a reference to how much freespace I have

    what i would do is get the pie chart and assign 0 to totalGB in the TiVoPie.html file. if you've been using suggestions for awhile, the total shown at the bottom of the table should be fairly close to what's available.

    One is a good point, although my tivo does have a real routable IP I can connect to from anywhere.

    Doh!! I just deleted about 20 hours of suggestions and turned them off :(

    I guess maybe I'll have to turn them back on.

    Well for people like doormat, whose TiVo is open to the Internet, the media access key can be used to download shows off your TiVo and play them. All that's needed is the TiVo's ip address (also in the xhtml file) and an open port in your firewall (if you have one).

    Distributing your MAK is also a violation of the TiVo's EUA and is justification for terminating your service.

    Well, The easier way I found was to average out the 3 or 4 programs I have recoded at Basic (averages about 750 mb per hour at basic) and multiply it by 80. It's not precise but should be close enough for me to use it fairly reliably.

    I got the standard, built-in, nowplaying working, but can't seem to get any data out of this tool. I load the page and get the certificate prompt, and after a couple of minutes I get this:

    Now Playing - 0 Shows (0hr 0min using 0GB)
    ~ 18hr 21min TimeLeft (@High)​

    With an empty table below.

    I am running the file locally on the same LAN as my TiVo and the edited file still has its correct extension.

    Any ideas?

    Any ideas?

    Did you enter your MAK correctly in the file? If it's not getting any data back, maybe it's because it can't log in.

    Just a guess...

    Yup. I know I have the right MAK as the built in nowplaying works... I edited the new file using the same copy/paste that I used to test the built in. Anything else?
