    Hi group. I'm running TiVo-Net that I recently downloaded and setup on an XP Pro SP2 machine. Anytime I add new files or remove files from my video directory, I need to go into the web-based admin page and submit the settings to rescan the directory before the new videos will show up (or deleted ones disappear) on my TiVos. Is this the normal behavior of this app? I don't see any options about setting it to autoscan every n minutes or anything. Any ideas?

    Thank you

    p.s. I know it's called TiVo[dot]Net, but I can't type that text until after I make 5 posts, because it thinks I'm posting a url. :rolleyes:

    Yes that is the normal behavior of the TDN software as it is.

    I think someone wrote a patch (it might be up on SourceForge) to do the auto-rescan. But aside from that, yeah, you have to do it manually. pipakin was going to add that in a future version but he disappeared and TiVo.Net is pretty much stagnating right now.
