    Hey guys, i was directed to try your app after i got frustrated in using tivo desktop to publish my mp3s that i store in itunes. I'm using a Mac (osx 10.4.8) and for some reason i am not seeing audiofaucet on my tivo (series 3). As far as i can tell, i don't have any network issues because i can see my itunes music via tivo desktop. Any troubleshooting tips to help me along ? Thanks.

    Not sure if this is will help or not, but some HME apps that I've tried were not recognized at all by my TiVo S3 (Galleon and the HME samples!) on Linux using a 2.6 kernel. However, once I disabled IPv6 in the kernel (via /etc/modules.conf) and directed java (via the launcher shell script) to prefer IPv4, my TiVo finally was able to recognize the servers.

    Perhaps OS/X has a similar issue wrt HME apps and IPv6?

    Now that AF is running on my PC, I've been using it a lot this evening. Got another freature request if it isn't to late or already done. When browsing podcasts, it would be nice to see which ones have not been played like the blue dot in iTunes.

    AF is a great product and I am looking forward to new release. I'll even pay $$ for it.

    Thanks,
    Steven

    Hi Gospel,

    Glad you are enjoying it. If you could throw an email over to afsupport@digitaldroplet.net with your suggestion. We'll add it to our list of to-do's. I'm not sure it will make it into the next release, but it's a wonderful idea and it should make it in there some day.

    Once we get a chance to add it in, we will let you know.

    I started AudioFaucet about 2 hours ago and a popup come up saying an update is available. Giong to the website didn't show any update. Was the message a false alarm? Or is there really an update? Hoping for the latter. :)

    Thanks,
    Steven

    It was a glitch in the system the detects new updates :) If you have no internet connection or if it can't find our server (we have no internet connection) it's possible it will default to telling you some exciting news... that unfortunately doesn't exist yet.

    We just upgraded our bug tracking and support system to hopefully better handle the support requests once we get the next build pushed out :) still have a bit more cleaning to do in the code, unfortunately i've been on the road for the past 2 months for work and haven't had the opportunity to dig in deeper with the code remaining to be done.

    Hang in there... the next update is coming.. yes.. we know it's been a year.. yes.. we know it stinks to wait.. but yes... we are going to release it soon... but not before it's ready.

    Hey KC, is your transcoding stuff going to handle Apple Lossless format? If not then you should take a look at the code here...

    http://craz.net/programs/itunes/alac.html

    it's an open source decoder for the ALAC format that should be relatively easy to port to the various platforms you support.

    Will audiofaucet support HD menus b/c it really bothers me, hehe.
    Itunes' coverflow looks alot better. Or is this the fault of Tivo?
    I also would like a way to increase the volume with the remote keys.

    We hope to support HD menu's as soon as TiVo allows 3rd parties to do so.

    As far as iTunes volume, there's a menu item to control that. If you used your Volume Keys on the remote you would be changing the master volume of your stereo system along with the iTunes volume and it would be confusing.

    Might want to contact s2kdave. He figured out the HD menu stuff for his BlockBuster Online app and said that he was willing to share the source code.

    TiVo has pulled all their developers off the open source HME SDK to work on the Comcast/Cox deal, so it could be quite some time before we see another update to the current SDK.

    Ha, sorry about that. I never thought this thread would become the Audio Faucet dumping grounds! Good luck and keep up the hard work.

    I'm well aware of what i could do to get it to work. However, without permission explicitly from TiVo to distribute the HME SDK files that work was based on we won't be publishing an update.

    We are working on an official avenue to get HD support (which in the end will be supportable as well) :)

    Music purchased from the iTunes store is protected. AF will not recognize it.

    Burn the newly downloaded files to a CD, then re-import.

    Grex,

    Try fully exiting AudioFaucet and iTunes, then re-opening iTunes and then re-launch AudioFaucet on your host machine. Let it settle for about 5 mins and then access AF from the TiVo.

    We think this is smoother in the next version we'll make public (not sure when that will be) but every now and again the XML file and our database get out of sync.

    This should force a regrind of your XML file that should describe the new purchases.

    If the issue continues, please send an email to afsupport@digitaldroplet.net so that we can more fully assist you.

    Cheers,
    KC

    My Amazon GC just came through so I ordered the book. Should be here tomorrow. (I have prime) Although I'm not sure when I'll actually have time to read it, but I'm have a good idea for an HME app I've been meaning to play with for a while so maybe this will get me started.

    Cool beans.

    Hopefully it will help you out. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    I've been using the current version of AudioFaucet for a couple of weeks. Very impressive. One question - how is the compatibility with iTunes 7.0? Everything seems to work fine except I cannot see any of my playlists. Is that expected, considering v7.0 came out after the current version of AudioFaucet?

    Otherwise, I'm very satisfied. Congratulations, and I'm looking forward to the next release.

    Sorry you are having an issue with AF.

    You should still see your playlists under iTunes 7. please submit a support ticket to afsupport@digitaldroplet.net and we can try to diagnose the issue with you. Please make sure to send as much detail as possible about your computer and iTunes config.

    If you are on Windows, you might have found that iTunes didn't properly re-register it's COM objects with the OS (Which we used in the past to find things like playlists.). You can try to force a re-install of the iTunes COM model by exiting AF completely on the Computer and re-installing iTunes. Once iTunes is installed open iTunes, close iTunes and then restart AF on the host computer. From the TiVo start AF. iTunes should open on the host computer automaticly. See if the playlists show up again.

    However we've completely revamped the way our browser and playlist system works for the next version. It no longer uses scripting to access the playlists and it is much more faster and more importantly reliable.

    KC, reinstalling iTunes per your instructions worked. The playlists now appear within AudioFaucet. Thanks...
