    Apologies if this in the wrong place...

    I'm having problems with an app using the TiVo Beacon API. When using the API on a machine with TiVo Desktop (2.1) running, the Beacon API window (class=TmrWindowClass) in TiVoBeaconAPI.dll is returning FALSE to the WM_QUERYENDSESSION message. This tells Windows NOT to shut down, and also prevents my app from shutting down automatically when Windows is shutting down.

    If anyone knows of a fix, or a way to directly contact TiVo developers, I'd be very grateful! Thanks in advance.

    TiVoBeaconAPI.dll version is 1.0.15.5310.

    In TiVo Desktop 2.1 and later, there is a "report problem" option under the Help menu. You can use that to report issues to the development team.

    No. I ended up installing my own winproc so I could correctly handle shutdown.
