Advertisements Hello everybody. I hope this is an appropriate place to ask for help with pyTivo, I didn't see anything that mentioned that such a topic was inappropriate for this forum. I'm having trouble getting my TiVo brand series 2 DVR, with software 8.3-01-2-540 to communicate with pyTivo running on FreeBSD 6.2. The problem, I suspect, does not have anything to do with pyTivo. My Tivo is connected to my network via a wired adapter. All of my network connection settings appear to be fine - the box phones home and loads data properly, it downloads updates, and I can even ping it: Code: [root@tanabe]~/pytivo # ping 10.10.0.50 PING 10.10.0.50 (10.10.0.50): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 10.10.0.50: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=3.848 ms 64 bytes from 10.10.0.50: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=2.036 ms 64 bytes from 10.10.0.50: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=2.198 ms 64 bytes from 10.10.0.50: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=2.370 ms 64 bytes from 10.10.0.50: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=1.525 ms --- 10.10.0.50 ping statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 1.525/2.395/3.848/0.779 ms So connectivity appears fine. What also seems fine is pyTivo itself. The server is running, and I get valid information back when trying to access it via my web browser at h.t.t.p://10.10.0.1:9032/TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=%2F. I tried pasting the output, but I'm apparently guilty until proven innocent as far as whether or not I'm a spammer, so I'm not able to. It is definitely valid, though. The /TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=Movies URL on the pyTivo server returns a valid list of the first 10 movies and directories in /mnt/movies, which is a Samba share. So that is all working perfectly. pyTivo, when left running in the console, shows me that I've accessed this page: Code: 10.10.0.2 - - [08/Jul/2007 17:51:03] "GET /TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=Movies H.T.T.P/1.1" 200 - So the server is up and running, connectivity on the Tivo is working, everything is fine. I choose "Manually add a server..." in "Music, Photos, Products, & More", I type the IP address of the machine running pyTivo. It adds the IP to the list. I access the IP, and I get (immediately, without any delay at all): Code: No servers were found at 10.10.0.1. Please verify that the IP address is correct, that the computer is on and connected to the network, and that the TiVo Server application is running and files have been published with the TiVo Publisher. If the server no longer exists at this location, you should remove it from your list. The Tivo doesn't seem to even make any kind of attempt to contact the server whatsoever. I even went as far as to modify pyTivo slightly to print something to the screen as soon as anything at all connects to it - there is never an attempt. I have tried the following: Reboot the Tivo. I had the most success with this (if you could call it that). After rebooting, I re-added the IP to the machine running pyTivo, and I can actually see Tivo accessing the server. It requests the URL /TiVoConnect?Command=QueryContainer&Container=%2F, but again immediately returns with the same error. So connectivity between the Tivo and pyTivo is definitely working. Tried running pyTivo on Windows. Same exact issue. Tried running Tivo (dot)NET on Windows. Same exact issue. Ran the guided setup on Tivo again. Tried different network settings - assigned a static IP, specifying all networking settings manually, also tried DHCP. Didn't seem to make a difference. Installed TiVo desktop software on another machine. Surprisingly, this works fine and I listened to an mp3 on that machine with the TiVo. Checked the settings for this DVR on the TiVo website. It says that transfers are ALLOWED, Account in Good Standing, and Video Downloads is Enabled/On. Thanks, I hope somebody can help!
