    Out of curiosity, can you manually group shows on the Premiere? I transfer some stuff from my computer via pyTivo and would like to group them myself to keep my playlist clean. I can't do this on TivoHD, but am hoping it's possible on Premiere.

    So I've been experimenting with Meta Data and used a program call MetaGenerator to create the .txt files. Everything looks right in it yet the episodes won't group into a single folder like if recorded from Tivo. Any idea how to get this functioning?

    There were some good instructions on how to create the folders that pyTivo would use to group your uploads. I've attached a slightly revised text file with these instructions.

    Sorry I don't remember who originally posted this information so I can't give credit to them.

    Be aware that there are some problems in 20.2 with the TiVo's interpretation of the the metadata... I can't remember any details, though (since I don't worry about it when transferring from PyTiVo).

    I believe it has something to do with the main folder having the same name as the first episode within the folder.
