    Do you have the pytivo conf file mapped correctly in the autopush.jar

    Probably not. The .jar file sees the shares, but I did not touch the pytivo.conf file.

    I noticed that I haven't gotten any new trailers in awhile so I tried adjusting the feedURL like below and things seem to be chugging along again.

    #feedURL = ""
    feedURL = ""

    Anyone know what changed?

    Hi Guys,

    How can I 'easily' get auto-push to run at login on a Mac in the background?

    I keep running into issues with the command "auto_push -b &"

    Is there anyway with autopush to monitor a specific folder in the shares? I don't want the whole share monitored but just a few specific folders.

    Make a new share for sub-folder and hide it from all the TiVos to avoid on-TV confusion.

    For the last week or so, autopush via pyTivo has been pushing every podcast to my Tivo twice. The autopush log shows it checking each video, and then shows it pushing each video multiple times. It is not respecting the auto_push.txt file.

    I have rebooted the Tivo several times, rebooted the machine running the autopush service, checked the parameters, deleted the auto_push.txt file, etc all in attempts to fix this.

    What else do I need to investigate to stop this behavior? Is there a better method I should be using to monitor a folder of videos and push them automatically to the Tivo?

    PyTivo is working properly and I am trying to set up the auto push function. I have downloaded the autopush program and it is placed in C:\Program Files\autopush. I open the program, find my pytivo.conf file, choose my shares and when I go to save the autopush conf file, I get this:

    Problem writing to config file: C:\Program Files\autopush\config.ini C:\Program Files\autopush\config.ini (Access is denied)

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
    Does any one think I could edit the .conf program directly and avoid the GUI?
    Could someone post their sample autopush conf file for me to examine?

    'Sounds like you are running Windows, in particular Windows 7.

    Yeah. Don't run Windows, especially not Windows 7. Alternately, you could put pyTivo, or at least its config file, somewhere besides Program Files.

    Yes, running as Admin, I think, may work. Certainly there is no requirement that the web utility do the work.

    Sorry if this sounds like a noob question, but how do I get auto_push to run as a background job on OS X at login? I can get auto_push to run perfectly fine as graphical job at boot via adding it to my Login Items, and a couple of years ago I was able to get it to run as a background job when I was doing some testing (didn’t suit my purposes at the time so I disabled it). For the life of me, I cannot get it to run as a background job for me on my new media server, no matter what I do! I’m pretty sure I used the “-b &” command from Terminal previously (as stated on the Code wiki)...Thinking about it, I may have created an Application via Automator to run the Terminal commands via a shell script. Does it seem like I am on the right track here? Any specifics or suggestions? Thanks.

    Is Pytivo Auto Push still functional? I set everything up and it appears to be working from the display I see "Watching" and the file that I just put in the directory where transfers should occur; then it says "pushing" that file; and the right address of my Tivo where it is suppose to be pushing to. BUT

    ... no transfers are made to the Tivo.

    No error messages.
