    Ok, I've got 0.5.5a running on Linux, but still no transfer love. I get the "will transfer when other transfers complete" message on my TiVo and "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" in the error log.

    Error Log and Transfer Log links are working though. I can see my requested transfer on that page. Kinda cool how you can cancel it via that link.

    pipakin, if you'd rather I keep the Mono discussion on your forum, just let me know.

    Hrm... Does a tvm file get spit out by the service? And if so, is the "Size" set to 0? (And here is fine. I made a TiVoMono forum over there as well).

    Nope ... I haven't found any .tvm files on my Linux box in the Videos directory. I checked the write permissions and everything looks OK (the process has written my settings changes to settings.xml).

    Unrelated note: when I check the Info screen for any recording via the Now Playing List, it shows up with a size of 5.58gb no matter how large it is. I've got two MPEG files in my Videos directory. One is 74mb and the other is 6mb. They both are reported as 5.58gb by the TiVo.Net server.

    Great work! I have it up and running via wireless and it is working great. I need to get this interfaced with my wireless webcam outside my front door so i can see who is at the door via tivo. Thanks for creating this.

    newbie question..
    I have this installed on a 2003 server and its running. I set tivo to the ip and have the ports allowed in my firewall but tivo does not see any thing.
    could some one point me to a walk though or something :(

    Sounds like you are in the Music, Photos, Products & More menu. Don't want to be there.

    Go back to Now Playing List. You should see TiVo.Net Server listed a very bottom of your Now Playing List. Down below Recently Deleted folder.

    How do you clear the error log? Since they don't have timestamps, I'm confused whether these are current errors or old ones?

    For example, I see the Object reference not set to an instance of an object error, but everything is currently working for me.

    Few things, what type of video? Where is the video directory? Have you gone into the admin screen at all?

    Also, edit posts, please! :)

    er....you go find the file and manually delete them? I was just telling myself that I needed a "Clear Log" button. And timestamps might be helpful. :)

    I've been looking, I swear! Even checked in Isolated Storage ( ;) .Netter myself), but no luck. I must be blind. :eek:
