    I have 59 home videos to “push” to my TIVO Premiere (20.2) using WMCBRINE’s branch of pyTIVO. The files I am pushing have file names on my PC like “001 Video.mpg”, “002 Video.mpg”, “003 Video.mpg”. I have already set up the META text files to match each file in the same folder, so I have “001 Video.mpg.txt”, “002 Video.mpg.txt” and so on. Each of the META files has all the right information, the same seriesID number etc... I have it working so a folder will be created on the TIVO and all these videos will go into that folder (same seriesID). Everything works. I can push the files one at a time in the order I want and everything works.

    BUT --- I want to “push” them all at once, in a group. When I do this, the first file to get pushed is at the top of my file list on the PC in alpha-numeric order. So “001 Video.mpg” gets pushed first. This means it winds up at the bottom of the list in the TIVO folder (by record date) .. I want the “push” to be in the opposite order so that that “001 Video.mpg” winds up at the top of the list in the TIVO folder. So it needs to be “pushed” last. I can do this by hand, one at a time, but how do I do it in a group?

    Is there a way to do this without renaming all my video files on the PC ?

    I have a dozen more groups of videos to transfer.

    I don't see a way to do what you want, no.

    Thanks. At least I'm sure it can't be done. And thanks for the script! .. Works very well within its limits .. I'm not complaining at all .. I love having my "trip video" available on the TIVO in a folder .. One folder per trip .. It's really not so bad queing them up one by one .. thanks to all who made pyTIVO possible !!
