I've just installed pTiVo (Dan203's version, thanks for putting it together) and copied over a couple of movies to my Roamio. I was able to create my own metadata file at first from looking at the pyTiVo wiki and then saw Metagenerator (hat tip, lpwcomp) and tried that out. It got me all of the info much faster but lead me to a few questions: 1. MG3 does not pull in the programID from its sources as it reads in its notes they are only available from TiVo. The MG3 settings ask for the location of Python.exe and your TiVo user name and password to make an RPC call to TiVo to get the programID. I believe python is some kind of programming language but I assume I need some specific python program that already has code written to allow MG3 to talk to TiVo for this purpose? Has anyone used MG3 in this manner? 2. It's my understanding that once you have the programID in your *.txt file and you transfer your movie to the TiVo, it will use that info to provide a thumbnail, is that correct? Right now, the generic thumbnail it displays for any program I transfer is "Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo". 3. For some reason, the movies won't show up in my movies folder when transferred over to the Roamio. I've set both the vProgramGenre and vSeriesGenre to "Comedy" and "Movies" but the Category that is displayed reads "Separator" when you click through the list of shows or when you click on the Info button. From the pyTiVo wiki it reads that vSeriesGenre is not used but I thought to give it a try anyway to see if that would change the Category. Does anyone know the correct variable to set this value? 4. Lastly, does moving a file from my Roamio to PC delete it from the Roamio? Or does it just make a copy to the PC? Thanks for any feedback you all can provide, I appreciate it.
