The open source Galleon 2.0.1 media server for TiVo is now available.

This version includes the following:
  • Fix for app sharing configuration

Your TiVo needs to be running at least version 7.2.1 software.

I just installed 2.0.1 on both my computers. I really like the fact that you added the new menu level. My music photo and more was way to cluttered. One of the computers shows up as galleon and the other shows up as galleon [1]. Is there any way to change the menu name? I would like be able to add the computer name after galleon in the menu.

The other thing I want to mention is the fact that the install always goes great on my xp computer, but on my comp running win 2000 I always get an error when it tries to start the galleon service and I have to reboot the computer to get it to work.

Let me just finish by saying how much both my wife and I like galleon.

You can change the name in the Galleon configuration GUI File/Properties menu. The value of the name fields is used for the name of the menu.

Do you have to uninstall the 1.9.2 version or will this just install right over it?
Simply install over your existing installation. All your configuration settings will be maintained.

Love the new features so far! Being able to group all my Galleon apps under a single menu is great, and I love the fact that it recognizes folder organization for ComeBack tranfers!

I also like how it recognizes file naming conventions and then attempts to sort the files based on those names ... but it doesn't always seem to get it right and I can't necessarily figure out why.

For example, I have the following shows in a hierarchy:

The 4400
- Season 1
-- The 4400 1x01 - ''The Return'' Pilot.mpg
-- The 4400 1x02 - ''The New & Improved Carl Morrissey''.mpg
-- The 4400 1x03 - ''Becoming''.mpg
-- The 4400 1x04 - ''Trial by Fire''.mpg
-- The 4400 1x05 - ''White Light''.mpg
So in Galleon I can browse to Galleon - The 4400 - Season 1 but I see this:

''The New & Improved Carl Morrissey''
''The Return'' Pilot
''Becoming''
"Trial by Fire"
"White Light"
So why is the second episode sorting to the top? I see random mis-fires on the sorting like this in some of my other folders as well. Is it just a refresh issue perhaps?

Also, all of the recording dates in the ComeBack app are today's date ... is that supposed to be like that?

After the update (2.0, but it's still doing it in 2.0.1), all of my RSS apps are entitled "Yahoo", when only one of them should be. I've verified in the setup that they have other names there.

Clean install of 2.01 - Added Shoutcast, then added Galleon Menu. Now I see Shoutcast outside of the menu and two instances inside the menu. Haven't tried rebooting PC yet, but I thought I'd post incase I forget this ever happened. :)

Could you try to reboot your TiVo while Galleon is running.

For some reason I can use ToGo from my computer and see the recorded shows fine but no apps are showing up on my tivo. Any idea what im doing wrong?

Thanks,

I've found that the TiVo recorder sometimes holds onto old apps even though they have been removed. They seems to then disappear after some time. It sometimes helps to go in and out of the Music, Photos & More menu. You could also restart your TiVo with Galleon running to get everything back in sync.

Leaving it up for an hour didn't help, neither did going in/out or rebooting the TiVo. Once I rebooted the PC everything cleared up, though.

The filename formats you have doesnt exactly match the patterns Galleon currently recognize. If Galleon cannot determine the date of the recording from the filename, then it defaults to the current date.

Wow. Reading this forum is always very helpful. I never even knew you could add folders to the directory to show the folders on the TiVo. Huh. Now you can also send date information, too. Awesome.

What exactly is the correct format to send date recorded information? I would love to add date information to the episode that corresponds to the season and episode number. For instace, if the episode is season two episode five, I would like to have the date be 2/5. I was doing a little experimenting, but can't seem to make it work.
