    Gang ... I'm having trouble getting this module working again (new windows install at work, oh the joy!), help and pointers appreciated.

    I've put the latest 1.7 files on my pc and into the tivo's modules dir, restart etc. Popped my real ip address in the vbs file (its a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\tivo virtual apache dir), fired up digiguide, attempted record with tivo and received an error about recording on a channel I don't receive (digiguide bbc1, seems my tivo is set to bbc1se - this is a freeview setup on both sides). bit more tivoweb playing and resolved this to the channel inconsitency (manual recordings returned a tivoweb error on bbc1 too). I've changed my digiguide channels to bbc1se, now when I attempt the recording I'm getting the apache password prompt (so we're getting to the server), I can quickly see the /tivo/manual-record-style-web-request address but it drops back to /conficts/... without the /tivo/ so it fails.

    This is the same problem that I had a while back when i was using my www.dyndns.org/tivo setup but I was able to use xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/tivo no problem (probably release 1.4ish I guess). Any thoughts on what might be going wrong?

    1) does anyone else have 1.7 working with apache virtual dirs?
    2) does anyone have this working with apache at all (maybe with a tivo.xxx.xxx.xxx address) - pointers for this setup would be cool?
    3) - the biggy ... dynamic dns forwarding ... anyone got this working?

    this is a really cool module that I'd dearly love to get working! btw ... i've got normal dyndns tivo access setup on my pc and can manually search & schedule through that, just not when this digiguide module is starting the process.

    cheers
    Duncan.

    Hi Duncan,

    I've got the program to correctly put the tivo/ prefix on to the forwarding conflicts forwarding function.

    Luckily i installed apache with reverse proxy last night so i've been able to test it.

    I've uploaded just the digiguidesearch.itcl for the moment (so you can get it working) but i'll be posting a new version maybe tonight or tomorrow as there were a few minor bug fixes i needed to do. Plus i'll check the problem with the channel mapping.

    Any more problems let me know

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    PS make sure you remove the .txt extension from the file

    Great work shane !

    (I love my ssh\vnc connection to home ... no more upset wife with me disappearing upstairs to tweak the tivo!).

    Thats fixed it all, I can now schedule via my dyndns address with digiguide ... thats all set for me to register with them now, sweet.

    All I've got to do now is decide if the tivo is setup correctly for the freeview channels I recieve (sure i get bbc1east not bbc1southeast) ... hey ho!

    Thanks a bunch,

    Duncan.

    No problem Duncan,

    I'm just trying to figure out how to get apache's reverse proxy to be working through ssl to protect the password which should give me the same as ssh tunnelling.

    The websites talk alot about certificates but i just want the /tivo location to be run through a secure connection. - If anyone has any idea's let me know.

    Shane.

    If you've made up a 'false' secure certificate for your apache installation that works, then you use reverse proxy just the same for https as for http. It works on mine, if I can be bothered to secure that part. But the annoyance of having to accept the certificate each time I visit it from work made it a button click too many for me.

    Corrected a few bugs, see post 1.

    If you don't watch ulster tv or don't use a reverse proxy or only have 1 tivo :( then you don't need to upgrade to the new version.

    Cheers,

    Shane.

    Just curious about this thread. Why is discussion of the use of an alternative EPG allowed, when the transfer of a recorded program from one Tivo to another is not. Surely, the former is sailing closer to the wind than the latter :)

    This module requires a valid tivo subscription to be in place to actually schedule the recordings (as I understand it the plug in sends channel & program info to tivoweb = it does not send a raw channel, start time, stop time request). As such is complimentary to the tivo EPG, can't see whats wrong with that.

    :)

    OK - hadn't realised it needed a subscription, though I suspect it's not a giant leap for mankind to make it otherwise :)

    Well, it's nice to know I'm not stupid.

    But did I miss the post that said why it was taken down?

    Why has it gone?

    Not sure why it was removed... I didn't do it :confused:

    I've re-attached it and put a link to a version on my dsl space.

    It looks like the forum lost a few attachments. The TivoWeb themes that were attached to a post in my sig disappeared in the last few days. I had to add it back again.

    Has anyone noticed that this program has stopped working :( something todo with the +1 time difference which is causing it to have a problem..

    I'll try to figure out how to fix it but if anyone knows off the top of their head then i'd much appriciate it :D

    I'm also adding the pay.tv callsigns to the program.

    yes indeed, was about to post the same - scheduling a recording brings up a tivo conflicts page for a showing 1 hour later than the requested program .... maybe its easier to convince the world to do away with daylight saving (never seen the point of it myself!) :)
