    That's what I figured, and so they did. Guess I only need to check one episode out of the lot in the future, huh ;-)

    A suggestion on TiVo Suggestions: Would it be possible to auto-assign them to a Suggestions folder, as has been done in the TiVo OS since version 4?

    Once I am in the Folders section, how can I "view" a programme?

    At the moment I have to go back to the User Interface and click on Now Showing which sort of defeats the purpose of the Folders section!

    Thanks for guidance on this.

    How do you mean "view"? The Folders screen has the same info as the Now Playing screen. :confused: Are you using TiVoWeb or TiVoWebPlus??

    I have the regular TiVo in one room and the TiVo HD in another. I am unable to get the HD to sort and group in my "Now Playing List" like I am able to do on my regular TiVo. The "enter" button does not allow me to do it nor does pressing "1" or "2". Can you help me? Thank you! :)

    I just "discovered" this module and think it's great. Maybe I can pick up on this dangling issue. I am using TWP. If you set "TyShowLinks = 1" in tivoweb.cfg, an extra column appears in the "Now Showing" grid which is a link that lets you stream the program.

    I think it's the only thing that NS has that the Folders view lacks (and is trivial to add).

    Thanks!

    I get the following error when i try to create a folder:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_folders '' 'set "action" "folders";set "sub" "docreate";set "name" "Malcolm";set "submit" "Create Folder";'
    couldn't open "/var/hack/npf": no such file or directory
    while executing
    "open $npffile w"
    (procedure "::action_folders" line 92)
    invoked from within
    "::action_$action $chan $part $env"
    ("eval" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "eval {::action_$action $chan $part $env}"
    --cut here--


    I've checked and no, "/var/hack/npf" does not exist. i followed the instructions on your site:

    Latest module: version 2.8
    (Load to the tivoweb-tcl/modules directory, delete npf.itcl if you were running the old version and do a Quick Restart of TiVoWeb.)

    the full path is /var/hacks/tivoweb-tcl/modules

    Thanks.

    Ok...

    Ahh... looks like you have your hacks in "/var/hacks" - folders.itcl is lazy and assumes it's under "/var/hack". If you create an empty "/var/hack" folder it should be happy after that.

    Following up on this...

    LJ, how difficult would it be to implement this specific column? It's the only function left on the original "Now Showing" grid that your excellent replacement module does not recreate. And so I find myself going back and forth between the two screens (one to check my Now Showing List, and the other to actually start streaming a show.) I'd love to be able to rely on your "Now Showing with Folder and Sort" exclusively.



    Second request, not as big of a deal, but certainly helpful: in the standard Now Showing list, I can hover my mouse over an episode title, and a description of the episode (plot synopsis) pops up. This is enabled by the following line in tivoweb.cfg:

    Code:
    DescriptionHover = 1
    It would be great to see those descriptions appear in your module... either as standard text or as a pop-up.


    Thanks for the cool add-on!

    Difficult? Technically not at all, but we're not allowed to talk about extraction, so you're on your own with that one.
    Hmmm, works fine on mine. Maybe TWP handles it in a different way to TW... The folders.itcl code is looking for $::description_hover to be true. Any idea what TWP does when you set DescriptionHover = 1?

    Glad you like it!

    Hi,

    I am looking into finding a module for tivowebplus that will allow me to change some recordings into a folder that already exists. Can I use the folders.itcl with Tivowebplus and TiVo 7.2?

    Thanks.

    Why don't you try it and let us know if it works?

    Fozzie,

    I tried it and it does not work.

    LJ,

    Will you be looking into creating a version of the folders.itcl to work with the 7.2 verison of TiVo?

    Thanks.

    Bit difficult from here (I'm in the UK and we're stuck on 2.5.5 :( ) If someone could give me web access to their TiVo...

    What error(s) do you get?
