    I use audiofaucet EVERY NIGHT, but a couple nights ago it wasn't showing up on my TiVo, or any of my other TiVos in my house...

    So it appears there is a problem with AF running on my computer. I have tried installing it again, clearing settings, and stuff like that, with no results..

    I have a G4 Powerbook running the most up to date OS 10.4.8 (or whatever its at now)..

    I am very perplexed to what this problem could be.. So if someone could get back to me with a fix, that would be great...

    thanks..

    P.S. I would love to see a new version.. SOON...

    Did you recently install an update to the computer, or any security software, which might include an update to the firewall? Usually when a TiVo networking feature isn't working it's due to a firewall issue.

    turnipsun:

    Does your machine have more than one IP interface? Did you install any Virtual PC/Parallels software that might have added another interface? If so, you may need to go into the AF Prefs and specificly set AF to latch onto the Interface which is on the same local network as the TiVo.

    Beyond that, and without any detailed information it's going to be hard for me to figure out exactly what's going on. When you get a chance please send an email to afsupport@digitaldroplet.net with your system configuration and explaining the situation, we can then work with you to turn on some logging and hopefully figure out what's going on.

    A new public build of AF is coming, it's very close, we have started a small private beta to slowly expand the radius of configurations we run on today due to some of the major re-write work we've done over the past year. We're not accepting applicants at this time, but there are new builds out there .... finally.

    Hi Gang,

    I know we've dropped off the face of the earth. Both John and I have been extremely busy with our day jobs due to some huge projects and lots of travel and haven't had a chance to appropriately react to folks using the existing beta that we have out in the wild with a small group of folks.

    We think we're close to being done... however, with our current time schedules, I can't really hazard a guess as to when the next public build is going to be available.

    Sorry the news wasn't brighter or more frequent... life has been busy, as I'm sure it is for many of you as well. I for one can't wait to get back into the swing of things and having some fun with the code again.

    We'll post here when we've got an update.

    Cheers,
    KC

    Thanks for checking in.

    We actually just this week dusted off the source code that we haven't had the time to look at in months with life being so busy for both of us. It's good to get back into the swing of things, but we do still have some work to do. We haven't forgotten about ya'll, and we do very much look forward to getting the new code out there once we feel it's ready and we have the time to support it fully.

    We also may look at the new beta SDK that was released to add some HD support. but we haven't made a decision to go down that path yet (both of us currently feel that we should wait and just get the standard def version out quicker as it works just fine on the HD TiVo's -- albeit a tad bit stretched)

    Hey KC, good to see you guys are still interested in developing this app further. Just wanted to add my voice to those who are really interested in seeing AudioFaucet continue!

    One quick question for you or anyone else who knows -- when I use iTunes to play music, I have a "Party Shuffle Feeder" smart playlist that I use to weed out songs for shuffle play. However, with AudioFaucet it seems like I can only either a) Play that, or any other playlist, in alphabetical order, or b) Shuffle all the songs in my entire library. I'd really like to just shuffle from within that one playlist. Is there anyway to do this, or to simply stream whatever iTunes chooses to play through the Tivo?

    Great work with the app.

    Has anyone had any luck making Audio Faucet work on a DTiVo?

    I have the "Music and Photos" option on my DTivo and it works fine. I serve the music and photos from my Windows XP computer using Tivo Desktop.

    I can also transfer shows between my TiVos on my network using the MRV option.

    I don't understand why Audio Faucet isn't simply "seen" by my DTivo as another server just like Tivo Desktop.

    I would love to hear from anyone that has experience getting this to work on DTivo. I would really LOVE to control my iTunes on my Mac and have it play through my home system (using an AirPort) by using my TiVo. I already have the Mac working like this. But having a TiVo interface would make it just that much better.

    Thanks

    It will :)

    I know it's been a long time, and believe me -- i would love to be able to get another version out for you all to play with. I've been working at a technology startup trying to get it off the ground, traveling here there and everywhere for the past few years and haven't had many a moment to spare. When we did have some time, John and I decided to work with the folks at TiVo and Wiley to write the Beginning TiVo Programming Book.

    The good news is, while writing the book, we re-designed portions of AF to behave much better/faster on the TiVo. Since then we have done some work to speed up the core engine that does the magic we do. Along with a visual refresh, and some much requested feature adds as well. We just haven't had time to finish off all of the testing and documentation we need to do in order to push out the new version to a wide audience.

    The version that was released in March 06 works for most people, so we haven't pushed another version publicly. We will however push one out with some cool features as soon as we get some time to finish it up right.

    Cheers,
    KC

    Howdy,

    Sorry i missed this message. You can shuffle any playlist while you are on the Now Playing Screen.

    Hit Play to Play the currently selected song
    Hit Pause to Pause the currently selected song
    Hit Replay to go back to the beginning of the currently selected song
    Hit Rewind to go back one song in the playlist
    Hit Forward to go forward on song in the playlist
    Hit Thumbs Up/Down to Rate the currently selected song
    Hit Channel Up/Down to Move to the next/previous Playlists
    Hit Enter to toggle shuffle on the current playlist
    Hit Clear to fade the screen away/back (exiting the screen also un-fade it if Cleared)

    If you are in iTunes Control Mode, the playlist will be set to Shuffle in iTunes and will stay shuffled until either toggled in AF or in iTunes.

    Cheers,
    KC

    After a full day if very heavy use, I have had a couple issues that seem to be happening about 60-75% of the time...

    1) The video (song info screen) seems to lag behind the music... Sometime by almost 30-40 seconds. This occurs when simply playing from a playlist as well as when FF or RR tracks. In fact, when FF/RW tracks the interface seems to hang at times, taking quite a bit of time to return.

    2) The second issue I have seems to happen only periodically... After playing through a playlist (at about the 30 min mark) the TiVo gets a mind of its own and switches to live TV.

    This is EXACTLY the app I've been looking for for quite a while. I REALLY hope this project gains some steam and gets some attention...

    I think I posted this in the other AF thread, but the only thing that I would like to see is support for unencrypted AAC. While encrypted AAC would be great, I know that is a giant headache, and in all likelihood couldn't be done anyway.

    So, if we're going to get unencrypted AAC support, then I'm on board.

    Thanks for a great app KC.
