    Thanks for your suggestions. I tried the pyTivo Desktop lpwcomp linked to but got stuck in same place with please wait sign. I think I've unplugged and restarted my Tivo 15 times today. Wish I knew what I was doing. Uninstalled and reinstalled - just keeps freezing.

    Exactly where and when are you getting the "please wait"?

    How are your TiVo and computer connected to the network?

    I was getting the please wait as soon as I opened a folder on my Tivo - and everything is connected via wi-fi. But I have it working (sort of) now. After several uninstalls and reinstalls and restarts I can see my folders and get them to setup transfers but I've been transferring one video file for 2 hours now. PyTivoX was alot faster than that... this program seems to take forever. Did I miss something? I set up 1 video to transfer and 1 to wait in line. Thank-you for replying. Is there a place I can go to learn how to use just pyTivo by itself?

    The transfer mechanism for all the various versions of pyTivo (including pyTivox) are the same. Sounds as if you either have a network problem or a computer/disk problem.

    Thank-you again for all your help. I don't think anything is wrong with network or disk but don't really know how to check - at least it is all working. And I do have pyTivo Desktop working slowly now. Wondering if changing settings would help - would Program or Transport Stream be better to choose under Tivo To Go and what should I do about the 3 boxes to check save metadata, decrypt with tivolibre, use sortable filenames for downloads? And in uploads should send files as transport streams be on and should I check the tivolibre box? Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

    I'm fairly sure that Transport Stream isn't supported on S2's.

    You should probably try seeking help in the pyTivo Desktop thread. As I said, pyTivox hasn't been supported for years and there may be few people following this thread.

    At least for downloading recordings from a TiVo you may have better luck with Archivo or cTiVo. Both are newer tools for Mac users looking to transfer recordings to their computers or devices.

    What version of pyTivoX works with Catalina? and Streambaby? I used cTivo to download Tivo recordings and remove commercials but don't have a way to send them to my Tivo.

    doesn't directly answer your question, but I'm 99% positive I've used the CLI tools on Catalina..

    I haven’t found one. That’s the only reason I haven’t upgraded to Catalina.

    I ran streambaby, it seems to be running on my iMac, I can’t find it listed anywhere under My Shows on the TiVo. Seem to happen when I upgraded the new version menu on the TiVo

    Well I found pytivo desktop, pt, and installed in on my iMac running the latest version of catalina. I assume the connection would show Up in My Show as devices (Devices only shows up when my iMac is running the pytivo desktop). Devices didn’t list anything however it says the Tivo is not connected to the network. That’s is as far as I got. I have a Romeo plus with two minis running on Moca network. Any suggestions?

    Sadly, no version of pyTivo works on "TiVo Experience 4", which it appears you're running. You'd have to revert to TE3.

    Really? All this and I finally figured out what the import skip button is for.
