Was accompanied by a blank DOS box, captioned: C:\Program Files (x86)\pyTivo\dshow\tivomak.exe.tivomak.exe - System Error
The program can't start because mfc140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
Always good when it's a simple thing, isn't it?Ahh crap. Ok I know what that is. I thought I linked to MFC statically so that wouldn't happen, but I must have forgot to change the setting for the release build. I'll fix it and upload a new build tomorrow or monday.
That program only effects the DirectShow filter, not the rest of the program, so it's safe to keep using.
Thanks, and for making me feel more competent (or, rather, less incompetent).To be honest I'm not quite sure what the listen option is used for. The help in the main UI doesn't explain it very well. Although I'm pretty sure the whole beacon option is unnecessary when zeroconf is turned on. I'm pretty sure it only pertains to the old style TiVo beacon protocol.
I upgraded to latest version and can't get anything to transfer to PC now, it worked fine in earlier versions.
Just as a data-point: installed the latest version over one of the recent, earlier versions yesterday, and generally have had no issue in downloading from TiVo to PC yesterday/today, PS mode. The only glitch: one or two metadata files were not produced (I have the metadata file option switched on)--but this occasionally occurred with earlier versions as well.Exit out of the whole thing, and check the task manager to make sure all processes are gone.
Dan, don't know if you saw my update to Post 401--my attempts to initiate new downloads also sit queued and stall at 0 bytes. I did further searching in the DOS status window and found the following error message further up (after the download was initiated by me):Exit out of the whole thing, and check the task manager to make sure all processes are gone. Then go to the install folder and launch the pytivo.exe manually. That will show a console window. Now go into the desktop folder and launch pyTivoDesktop.exe. Make sure you can see the console window and then try to queue a transfer. Does it print an error of any kind? If so can you copy/paste it here so I can see what it is?
Hope this helps and that this is the info. you wanted. All was fine earlier today with a queued list, until a stall well into the list.Unhandled exception in thread started by <unbound method ToGo.process_queue>

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. I started downloading 2 shows from my Roamio Basic before I left fo work.
Or, perhaps better, it will only ask once and then leave the user alone absent a new version coming out--pushy program.I was about to post about this too. I have 1.5.11 installed, it's asking about 1.5.12. I hit "No", since I don't want to update at the moment, and the box keeps popping up again, prompting me to update. I've hit No a bunch of times, just to see if it would stop asking after a few, and it keeps coming back. Hopefully it can be tweaked to wait a day, etc, before asking again.
The good news, though, in the interim: while the box may be there, pyTivo Desktop still is useable and other windows will go over the message box.There is definitely something wrong with the auto update feature. I just ran into the same issue with it just popping up the dialog over and over and not allowing me to dismiss it.
I need to figure out a good way to test it without annoying you guys though.
