    I have installed, but everytime I try to record a program, tivoweb just says:

    Sorry, unable to find <progname> at specified time.

    Happens with all programs on all channels - any ideas?

    dsloper,

    That page is only displayed if the program you've searched for from digiguide does not appear in tivo's listings. The only things that i can think of that may cause this are if
    - there is no guide date on the tivo, or
    - your digiguide is setup with a different linup eg searching for a sky1 programme when you only have freeview

    If neither of these are true then i'll have to have a re-think.

    It basically uses the search function from tivoweb, do you have any problems when you do a manual search?

    Maybe that 'sorry, unable to find <your programme> at specified time' is a bit of a dead end page, i may change it to list the programmes that DO match the titie/keyword search at the end, incase there are slight differences in date/start time. - this also may help to solve your problem dsloper.

    I have sky digital, with digiguide and Tivo for the channels I receive.

    Actually, just looking at the problem again, and the problem appears to be with Tivoweb itself rather than your module.

    All my guide data on the Tivo is correct, but all of TivoWeb's times are an hour later than the real program time - almost as though tivoweb is still using BST somehow.

    Not sure what is causing that because the Tivo time itself (and Tivo guide data) is correct.

    That's a good idea Shane (to list near misses) It's something I'd like to fix about various parts of TiVoweb, to stop the dead ends.

    As Shanew knows I've been trying to fix the "dead end" in the conflicts page. At the moment there are two choices when a program you WANT to record conflicts with something already scheduled. Either, you go ahead with the new recording, or forget it. If you have a second tivo, it would be good to have script that checked the second tivo with the same search string, and handed over the recording.

    (Sure you could have this on both tivos and just keep handing over in a loops. Happens all the time in corportae Britain anyway!)

    That's pretty odd, have you tried doing a "Full Restart" of tivoweb?

    yep - even rebooted the tivo - and times in TivoWeb ( and tivo web only ) are still an hour out (ie BST) - really strange.

    There is a bug in TiVoWeb where it doesn't notice that the clocks have changed until its restarted - but if you've rebooted... Very odd.

    Where I live, both the freeview and cable channel setups allow for setup of BBCOne as either BBC1 SE and BBC1 London on Channel 1. Normally I have set up BBC1 Ldn as my channel 1 on the TiVo ("channels you watch").

    Using DGsearch, I've found that I get the channel number error on TiVoweb, only on BBC1 programmes.

    If I go back to TiVo, include BBC1 SE as another "channel I watch" on Channel 1, I then find the recording is made as normal.

    This is, I suppose a fix, but I wondered whether the script checks all channels or only "channels watched" in using the search module?

    As an aside: I was a bit surprised to find the two regions listed in TiVo's assumption of my freeview/ntl cable pack, but I guess the packs put together are a bit generic to encompass a wide region with two regional flavours (I don't even know if the BBC I actually receive is SE or LDN, but I guess since the Freeview version receives from Crystal Palace its LDN

    I think this is the same problem that starbug1234 saw which I fixed in ver 1.2 (check the first post). Check you are using the newest version as the search should no longer be returning results from channels you don't watch.

    Cheers,

    Version 1.5 uploaded to first post

    It now has the option for if you have more than one tivo a link will appear on the conflicts page that says "Try this program on other TiVo", it will then take you to the conflicts page on the other tivo and checks the conflicts against the program in question.

    Even if you don't use digiguide this function is separate so you just need to upload the itcl file and add the personal information for it to work.

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    kitschcamp - what happened with your access from work comment?

    I installed this hack pretty early on and it worked ok on the setup at that time ... i had a tunnelled port via my ssh link to my gateway pc for tivoweb access, that worked fine. my setup now is that i've used a vitual host setup with password in apache to be able to get to tivoweb via www.mydyndns.dyndns.org\tivo - that works fine for tivoweb access but not with this hack. I've entered "www.mydyndns.dyndns.org/tivo" as the ip address in the script, whenever I attempt a schedule add with digiguide the browser loads (IE), the http address including my /tivo appears briefly in the address field but then i get a page not found and the address field has dropped the /tivo ... ie http://www.mydyndns.dyndns.org/conflictsXXXXXX

    any thoughts on whats going on there?

    Cheers,
    Duncan

    Adelaide,...
    Yeah, it seems the conflicts part of the tivoweb code doesn't respect the ability to set up sub-directories on the tivoweb. Your set up is pretty much the same as mine.

    Until I can sit down and play properly with my Apache forwarding rules I've kludged something together where I use my apache server as my work-proxy... Not elegant, but it works at the moment.

    Just tried to record Ab Fab on BBC with digiguide in conflicts with a scheduled will & grace, and I got this error:

    Try a Full Restart of TiVoWeb and try again.

    Probably just a dtabase busy error - happens in tivoWeb sometimes.

    Just having a look at this, noticed a valid tivo subscription is required.
    Couldn't a module that upon a right click in Digiguide, sets up a manual recording on the particular channel, then alters the manual recording name on the tivo to the program clicked within digiguide??

    Sailing close to the edge, but this is no way service theft..

    There are two Digiguide systems being worked on - one uses manrec as you suggest.

    Is there a simple URL in TiVoWeb that would make this happen or is it omething that has to be done via IR commands?

    If a URL ... then would be easy to invoke ... and I'd stick it into my stuff as well.
