    LJ,

    I will try again and post the error messages. One thing is on the main page you do not see the folders that are already on the TiVo. For example, I have groups for U2(wishlist), ER and do not see them in the drop down list only All programs. I will post screenshots.

    Thanks.

    I believe the folders seen/created by this module are totally seperate from the folders inherent in the TiVo (4.0+above) operating system.

    LJ,

    When I try and create a new folder I get the following error message:

    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_folders '' 'set "action" "folders";set "sub" "create";'
    extra switch pattern with no body, this may be due to a comment incorrectly placed outside of a switch body - see the "switch" documentation
    while executing
    "switch -exact -- $sub {
    delete { if { [llength $fldrinfo] > 0 } {
    puts $chan "


    Thanks.

    Hi,

    First, thank you very much LJ for continuing to discuss and support your module.

    Is it possible to 1> rename the NPF button in the TWP button bar such that it says, "Now Showing", instead of, "Folders," and 2> change the "Now Showing" link on the "User Interface" screen so that NPF is called instead of the built-in TWP "Now Showing" module? I want UI consistency for my wife and kids, and having 2 different presentations of Now Showing doesn't get me there.

    And, what did NPF do with my "View" links? Is this what all the fuss was about?

    Best regards,

    Tim ==

    Yes I noticed the same thing. Where did the View links go? I love the sorting module otherwise btw! Thanks a million.

    View links were never part of this module. When I asked about adding them earlier in this thread, LJ said we're on our own since it has to do with extraction.

    Truth be told, since this module's folder structure doesn't mirror back to the TiVo, and since you can't use it's UI to view/stream video to a computer, I'm torn on it's usefulness.

    As TimTrace requests, it would be nice if at least it replaced TiVoWebPlus's existing "Now Showing" list. And the "view" button is built in to TWP, so not sure why offering the same would be taboo here. It's reliant on a lot more hacks under the hood, that need not be discussed here.

    I am an airhead, I know, so forgive me for asking...

    I don't see a link to download the folder module for TWP. Am I missing something? I see your other modules, just not this one.

    I recently zippered my 2 HDVR2 Directivos and everything is working perfectly! Networking, NCID, MRV, Music & Photos, TivoServer, TyTools for downloading recordings to the PC, and TWP Thanks to everyone!!

    My question is about folders in TivoWebPlus-- They work fine in TWP but do they not show up in the NPL using the Tivo UI? Mine are not there...but maybe they aren't supposed to be???

    Can someone tell me if there is any way of creating folders that will show up in the NPL on the actual Tivo?

    Thanks!

    There isn't (yet) a TWP module to do so, but check the post just a couple down from this one, for a command-line program to do so.

    incidentally, it's written by the author of the zipper.

    Having not installed this hack, could anyone tell me whether it would allow creation of a folder that I could password protect (preferably even sight of names of contained programmes) from my children! If it doesn't allow this, is there any likelihood that it might do in the future? Many thanks, nosey Phil!

    a common misunderstanding... this module only displays the NPL with folders under TWP... it doesn't change anything on the tivo.

    thanks BTUx9; is there any way to hide some recordings from the list on the tivo screen so it just occurs in a sort of hidden folder in tivoweb (my wife won't have long nowplaying lists whereas I like to hoard things I'll one day get round to watching)? Phil.

    it is possible to set recordings to invisible.
    2 problems:
    1) I don't know of any existing tools that do so
    2) You'd need to set them back via the tool in order to watch them (no way to access them via tivo UI, that is)
