    I've gotten to where it plays on my phone (after 1 minute it shuts down due to not having Plex pass which I will get if i can get it working on other devices) But on my computer it has a playback error message. still working on it.

    Thanks again

    In the ATL
    Never worked for me on Win10 and Comcast since the plugin errored out with tivolibre, which is required for mpeg4 Tivo files. I posted some logs here and never found a good workaround. Others (I think) got it working.

    I've got it working on my Win10 system. I have the pytivo\bin (desktop version of pytivo) in my path statement to pickup tivolibre.exe, and the kmttg\curl in the path to pickup curl.exe.

    Here is the bottom half of my configuration screen for the directory settings of the ttg plugin:

    I used to use this plugin all the time before it stopped returning my TiVo's - I installed the new version and it returned the tivos once, but most of the time I still get nothing.

    I will pull the logs and see if I can figure out why I am not getting a result.

    It is time to rebuild my pc - so this might be the impetus to start over with a fresh system.

    (back from vacation)

    The plugin doesn't seem to work on the mobile app anymore (see issue #8) but I have seen it where it stops returning the list of TiVos in the browser as well. Usually restarting Plex fixes this.

    Hi Everyone, has anyone noticed that the plugin no longer responds from the web app? I tried it this morning and it wouldn't launch even after restarting plex media server. The issue occurs from my desktop and mobile device...

    I've noticed that too. I think it's part of the slow demise of Plex plugin support.

    I am running my Plex server on my synology NAS. Where does java have to be installed, on the server or client?

    On the server, so your NAS.

    I get "There was an unexpected error during playback. Please visit our forums if you continue to experience problems." What can I provide that might help troubleshoot this?

    That sounds like an error from Plex, not the plug-in. But if you look in the plug-in log there might be something that would help. The log is in the Plex installation directory (for example, on my Linux box it's /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Logs/PMS Plugin Logs/com.plexapp.plugins.tivotogo.log).

    The only thing I saw was no streams followed later by port in use.

    So you've configured the plug-ins settings? And when you select the plug-in, what happens? Can you see your TiVos and browse the recordings on them? I don't see a lot to go on here in that log.

    Yes, I can browse all my recordings, but when I try to play one I get the playback error.

    I was able to replicate the error using a browser (documented the issue here). My logs looks the same as yours. On the TiVo itself the plug-in seems to work fine. The logs look the same except the GET URL executes and passes the stream to the encoder (and playback starts).

    To be honest, I don't really use the plug-in for streaming playback, mostly for browsing and downloading (and then I stream the downloads through the Plex app to my phone). With Plex continuing to de-support plug-ins and channels, this could be another sign of their back-end changes breaking things (the plug-in hasn't worked on mobile for a while, for example). So these things are not really within my ability to fix, sorry!
