    I accidentally told my Pytivo to download everything on my Tivo which is over 8TB worth of video.

    Is there an option to stop this monster download process?

    Thanks.

    It does not resume when the app is open again?

    You have to stop the pyTivo server, not just close the Desktop UI.

    The queue is in memory so as soon as you stop the server it will forget everything. (which is why there is a confirmation dialog)

    is there any documentation for pyTivo Desktop ?

    not just pyTivo, but pyTivo DESKTOP ?

    i searched for 3 hours today and all i found were malware infested websites that claim to have it if you give them your credit card info.

    i would very much like to use the tool if it can be made to work properly.

    No sorry. I wrote it myself as a side project. I'm not a big fan of writing documentation.

    If you have problems or questions you can post them here, PM me or even email me and I'll try to help you out.
