Is there a user manual? I installed the Desktop and it does recognize my TiVo and shows my media key, but it always opens the Settingspage and I'm not sure what it wants me to do. The 'Loading Show List' screens just endlessly shows the loading icon but it never loads the show lists.I have just completed a new version which now includes a full feature UI called "pyTivo Desktop" which includes TiVoToGo support. I hope it works well for everyone. Please let me know if you have any trouble with it...

I've created an easier to use/install version of pyTivo. It's compiled into a standard Windows exe and does NOT require you to install python on your PC to work. It also includes a simple UI for setting up and managing shares. Some of the advanced features still have to be setup using the web UI or by editing the config file by hand, but this should be a lot easier for people to get going if all you want to do is transfer videos from your PC to your TiVo or use Music/Photos.
pyTivo_setup.zip (alternative for those getting antivirus warnings with exe)
In a future release I plan to add a UI for some of the advanced settings and maybe the TTG portion too.
I'm also going to try creating Mac and Linux versions too when I have some more time.

The brute force copying from a working Mojave continues to work fine, I just have this nagging fear I overlooked something that could bite me someday.I think the reason you are having problems is Catalina is 64 bit system vs a 32 bit system.
Works on Catalina for me, as I previously noted. I am having very minor issues but I think they are coincidental and not caused by Catalina itself.I just don't have the time, or motivation, to fix it. And even if I did my Mac will only go up to High Sierra
Understood.it was basically impossible cram them all into a single file, so the installer just made more sense.
Dan, I know you didn't want to open source PyTivo Desktop when you created it, but perhaps you feel differently now, in case someone else would like to try updating it?At this point I think I'm done with updating pyTivo Desktop.
I have Mac Catalina and also Paralels with Windows 10 and am having no luck with either on in regards to PyTivo. Is there any where to get the files in order to do a "brute force copy". I'm actually moving to a place where they do not have Xfinity access so I'm going to have to sell my Tivo boxes but I'm hoping to pull all the videos off of them first.Works on Catalina for me, as I previously noted.

The Installer does not work for me, again as I noted; my Catalina version of pyTivo is simply a brute force copy over from my previous working version and I'd suggest that to anyone else having install failure. I'm hoping the installer doesn't do anything else subtle.
Why do you think it wouldn't work at your new location? What would be your Cable service there?I'm actually moving to a place where they do not have Xfinity access so I'm going to have to sell my Tivo boxes
No one here answered my question about the brute force copying. It seems to work for me. I'm running with Catalina by just copying the whole Desktop pyTivo folder in the Applications folder from a working Mojave system over to Catalina and reconfiguring paths to match the new environment. I think the option to autostart was available only during the original installation, I don't see an option to add that after the fact, so I set that up manually also.
