    Ehlo, the url you provided didn't work in VLC without the "http://" so I added it to the url. The TiVo tried playing the stream without opening VLC but when it did there was no audio or video. So you will need to add "needs_vlc =True" to the config.ini file. For example the following worked:

    Code:
    [Calvary of Aurora] 
    url=http://dove.streambird.com/sb700216_1
    needs_vlc=True

    I just tried to watch the Tron Legacy trailer in the HD Trailers RSS feed

    Actually none of the trailers played

    All I see on the console is:

    Start HME: hmevlc
    Error 1 can't create rsrc. unsupported stream type /movies/universal/sanctum/scanctum-tlr1_h480p.mov
    Error 3 resource 2172 not found (type type[-1])
    Error 1 can't create rsrc. unsupported stream type /movies/movies/disney/tron-clip1_h480p.mov
    Error 3 resource 2172 not found (type type[-1])

    OTHER RSS feeds worked fine.


    any ideas?

    I don't know what that is. More info, please.

    Edit: Googling it, I'd say, probably not. I don't see much in the way of technical info, but I do see the claim "effective DRM", which would pretty much leave us out, if true.

    Unless you know of it working in VLC?

    If you get that error when accessing TVU then make sure the TVU player on your computer is playing video before trying to access the TVU stream on the TiVo. Also each time you change a channel in the TVU player you will need to exit the TVU stream on the TiVo and then reselect it once the channel has been changed.

    VLC is used to read a video stream or file and convert it in to a format that TiVo can use. If you have VLC installed in the default folder then you shouldn't have to set the path in the config.ini file.

    I get the error when i try to access HME/VLC option on Tivo..I cant see the different channels under it (havent gotten that far yet..it doesnt let me)..I think it mostly has to do with the mcafee firewall that I am running...will disable it and see if the result is any different

    An easy way to watch Hulu on the TiVo is to use Stream Transport to download the Hulu video and use HME/VLC Video Streamer to watch the .FLV video file as it downloads.

    Download hme-vlc-3.6.zip and extract it to a folder. Open that folder and you will see the start.py file. To run the software you will need to install Python 2.6 and VLC.

    The software is hosted at GitHub but this thread is the support area, just post your questions here and wmcbrine the developer or other users such as myself will try to answer your questions. You can also search this thread for answers since a lot of support questions have already been asked and answered.

    Grantsa4 had the same error and fixed it by modifying his firewall. Try turning your firewall off just to see if that solves the problem.
