    I had the same interest a while back and there were a couple of things I wanted to add to pytivo, so I built on wmcbrine's pytivo fork. I tried to have good commit messages as I was going, and I converted it to Python 3 as my 1st step.
    If you want to look at it as well, you can find it at mlippert/pytivo

    [edit] I use it for all TS downloads from my TiVos (running on linux) so it is still working just fine although I haven't made any updates in a while. I haven't really verified getting it working on Windows and I don't do anything at all w/ Macs.

    I'm not working hard to "discourage others from learning my secret incantation", I'm just trying to save you time. All the code for pyTivo Desktop is on GitHub including the build scripts and installer scripts. I'm just trying to offer a simpler solution for using pyTivo, which I think is great. Before I did the whole Desktop thing I still offered a version that just had the installer and the tray app, along with a rudimentary UI for common settings, because I wanted to promote the use of pyTivo but feel it's much to difficult for most people to setup and get running. That’s why the title of my thread is "Easier to use pyTivo", because it predates Desktop.

    pyTivo Desktop literally takes 2 minutes to install and is free. Why bother futzing with the pure python version, which is clearly giving you trouble? If you really want to transverse the source it's on my GitHub.

    The whole point of pyTivo Desktop and it's predecessor "easier to use pyTivo" was to eliminate the exact type of issues you're having.

    I'll be looking at this Python 3 version. I haven't programmed with Python at all, so this will let me see the newer update of Python. I've seen the struggles of version conversions in other languages before.
