how come my download manager shows the full correct url to my .ty file but IE just shows the shortcut as http://tivo/mfsstream/ShowName.ty but its not the same as what my download manager shows? how can i get IE to show the full complete URL too? how did they hide this info in html?

I'd be interested too. I've been trying to automate downloads with Getright or FlashGet, but I can't get them to intercept the download of TY files. I've used GetRight quite a while ago, but I must be missing something now.

Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck Show friendly URLs.

The download URLS for ty's in tivoweb are built with Javascript for some reason. Your download manager must be filling in the Javascript for you, but IE won't calculate the actual URL until you click on it.

they hide it with javascript... replace your mfsstream.itcl with my modified one to get the full url for copy/pasting. modified mfsstream.itcl file is in this post : http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=82338&highlight=mfsstream.itcl#post82338
