    OK, first, I'm a complete noob at this. I'm surprised I even got pytivo working and transferred files to my tivo.

    With that being said, how do I make folders? I have some p90x3 videos that I made so I can do my workout in another room where my mini is. I found this old thread and it's what I want to do, but I don't understand it and it's also 4 years old, maybe there's a better way to make it work.

    So if there's an easier way, please let me know. Again, this is a bit over my head but I'm trying.

    Thanks in advance for any tips!

    I think I've figured it out, going from one thread to another. I would love to see a .txt file of what a full metadata file looks like to understand the different lines and what they do.

    Are you referring to folders/groups on the TiVo or folders within a pyTivo share?

    What model TiVo?

    Folders/Groups on my Tivo Roamio Pro. I did figure it out eventually. Took a bit of trial and error to get it right. Also, the other info in this thread helped me to understand what each line means and how to write them.
