    If you can put together a good list, I'll try to whack it into the Windows installer.
    I don't have Vista with which to test.

    What's a reasonable amount of memory for the Java process to hang on to while it's just there spinning it's wheels ? My process is sitting at somewhere between 100-120MB. I did initially have it try to suck in my iTunes library (which is admittedly quite massive), but removing the iTunes Galleon app didn't seem to free any memory up.

    My current list of active apps : mail (Gmail), weather, music, movies (non-functional, BTW)

    Overall, though, nice first effort!

    Galleon spends it's first hour(s) indexing any applications and data it is instructed to find. It calms down after a while but mine regularly hovers around 110 MB (like you). Not really a problem for me since I have 2 GB of memory, but it's not unusual.

    Good to know.

    Looks like I won't be getting away with running 512MB on my XP machine any more! :)

    I'm running Galleon on a Linux laptop with 512mb of RAM (I recently upgraded it to 512mb ... I was running Galleon with only 256mb of RAM before that).

    You can mess with the -Xms and -Xmx flags on the java command line to set the min/max memory usage (but I'm not sure how well that works). Right now 'top' is telling me that Galleon's java process is using 75mb of resident memory, 97mb of shared memory, and 326mb of swap (15% of total memory usage on the machine).

    I'm running Galleon on an old Windows 98 PC, with 128 MB of RAM. Granted, I can't do much else when Galleon is running, but it runs on its own just fine.

    John, you rock! As an S1 user that jumped to S3 I was very disapointed to learn Galleon developemnt had stopped. I really wanted HD photos and as a linux user TiVO desktop really isn't an option for me. So, again, big thanks!!

    Does Galleon use the same naming convention for downloaded files as TivoDesktop?
    ie. South Park - ''Canceled'' (Recorded May 24, 2007, COMEDY).TIVO

    Yes, except no quotes around the episode name (at least on Linux):

    The Simpsons - The Fat and the Furriest (Recorded Wed Jun 13 2007 07 00PM WTOG).TiVo

    I am glad to read that there are or will be enhancements to Galleon.

    This may be the wrong place to ask but I recently went with an S3 and HDtv.

    When I view my jpgs they are all "resized" to the "wide-screen" image so that they are elongated left to right. Not absolutely terrible for landscape images but most of my people shots are showing shorter, squatter people.

    I've just tried tweaking a number of settings on the tv, tivo but it does not appear to fix this situation.

    I have not installed this new version of Galleon just yet.

    Ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Try that first. The old version was not "HD aware."

    Sounds like you have your TiVo or TV set to stretch 480p sources to fill the screen. Great if it's a DVD player, bad if it's SD content that's supposed to be 4x3.
    Do you see the same stretching on TiVoCast content (also 480p), or other HME apps?

    I checked various settings for the TV and Tivo and don't see anything forcing "stretching" of images. SD tv shows, show up a 4:3 with the sidebars.

    Be that as it may....

    Current 2.2.0

    Since this is alpha, can I install it parallel to my current Galleon - rather not lose the current WORKING setup?

    Or can I copy stuff to protect my current SETUP info for the various apps.

    My current desktop shortcut leads to Target with the following parms (all on one line):

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\javaw.exe -classpath ..\conf\;galleon.jar;log4j.jar;forms.jar;commons.jar;concurrent.jar;hibernate.jar;hme.jar;hme-host-sample.jar;pja.jar;dom4j.jar;browserlauncher.jar org.lnicholls.galleon.gui.Galleon

    The StartIn directory is

    "C:\Program Files\Galleon\lib"

    Thanks for any assistance.

    And yes, I've beta tested before (G)

    It will replace the current install, but all you should need to save is the configure.xml file (conf\configure.xml)
    You can also save the data directory, but that will be recreated (cached copies of various things like audio tracks, and maybe track ratings) if missing.

    The install said something about my java version. Frankly, I don't mess with it much - how to I test which version I have and what is NEEDED?

    1.5.0_01 is installed. Is that adequate?

    Thanks.

    jtkohl, thanks for restarting development on Galleon! Two problems I ran into while installing Galleon 2.4 alpha over version 2.3.

    1. I forgot to backup my 2.3 configuration and the 2.4 install over wrote my Galleon applications I setup.

    2. The Java hibernation piece somehow now hibernates my Toshiba laptop running XPSP2 & latest Java update, with hibernation still showing turned off within the Toshiba power controls.

    That is utterly bizzare--the hibernate.org code is just dealing with persistent storage of stuff, not with power management of the host operating system!

    If you have the time to offer improved artwork, please send it in (via sourceforge patches or tracker requests)!

    I just got a new computer and I installed the new version of Galleon. When I try to play a file that's on the hard drive, it asks for a password. I didn't have that with my old computer.

    Also, I've set Galleon to show menu, but when I go to look at it on the TiVo, the list is completely blank. I've got the programs stored on an external hard drive, but that hard drive is set up in Galleon as the location in which to store programs. Will the programs only show up if they're on the C drive?
