I'm game for testing potentially broken builds and reporting any issues. Running MacOS 10.12 on a MacBook Air.I finally got the Mac version working. Have a few minor bugs I have to work out, but it's running on my development machine. Once I get the bugs ironed out and an installer built for it I'll upload it to the website.
I don't think bonjur works over VPN. I'm pretty sure TiVo Desktop and the TiVos themselves have the same issue.Minor data point but something to consider: Installed the latest version and it works fine locally. Sees all four of my local Tivos (an S2, two S3s and a new Bolt) when on the same network but does not see the Bolt on a remote network while dialed in on a VPN. The computer has an IP address from the remote network and I can ping the Bolt but pyTivo can't seem to find it.
Mac version is up and running here. Two notes (both relatively minor):The Mac version has been posted. Please try it out and let me know if you have any trouble.
Little more detail: Actually, the dock icon will disappear if I use the pyTivoDesktop menu or Command-Q to quit the window. If I merely click the red x icon on the window, the dock icon remains. If possible, I'd prefer the x to handle things the same way as using the menu or key combo(would probably be good to change the wording to 'Close' vs. 'Quit', again, only if possible).) Icon still shows in dock all the time (ie when the window is closed but the tray icon is still running); assuming that's just something you haven't dealt with yet, and no big deal for me.
Yes, I had to override my default security setting as well(I understand why and all, just noting it here for reference).I am also running the OSX version and echo gonzotek's comments, although I just doubleclicked on the .dmg file after it was done downloading. I had to change my security settings to allow running an installation program from an unknown author. I started downloading 2 shows from my Roamio Basic before I left fo work.
Simply as a data point, this appears to be similar to the precautions in the Win10 installation process--an installation warning box pops up and one needs to click on a very de-emphasized "More info" link to get to an option to run the program.I had to change my security settings to allow running an installation program from an unknown author.

Yeah it is annoying. Looking at the code I think I could make it close on X but that seems to break the normal Mac paradigm, so I'm not sure if I should.I do not have any other programs that Exit when you close the window.
I like using OSX, but I find this behavior really annoying. If I wanted the program to continue running, I'd minimize it, not click on the X.
Do what you want, but from a user pov it's pretty trivial. Lots of developers don't want to sign up with Apple so any Mac user who's likely to be interested in this kind of software pretty much does the install on mental autopilot.The way it works now you essentially have to turn GateKeeper off just to install and it doesn't give you instructions on how to do that, so I worry that will deter people from using the app.
Really? I had to go to system & preferences and turn off the gatekeeper completely. There was a little button that said something like "we blocked pyTivo" with a "run anyway" button, but that button didn't work. I didn't know about the control key trick.I think I'm missing something? You hold down the control key.
