View Full Version : series 2 tyindex failing

05-29-2004, 10:22 PM
While I am able to grab .ty files from my Series2 using mfs_ftp and so on, and I can use the command-line tytools stuff to fix them up for DVD, I'd like to be able to edit, which means I need indexing (right?). I have installed the tyindex and tyserver onto my tivo and they are the S2 binaries. The tyindex updates the 'nowshowing' file, but then fails at the end of the first file index with a segfault. I have no way of knowing if it is looking for something it can't find, or whatever, but I'm at my wits end here --- tyindex sure doesn't give any info.

I've got these installed at /var/index on the tivo. Here is a sample output:

tivo:/var/index$ ./tyindex
Found 14 shows.

Need to make 481110 index

tivo:/var/index$ ls -lsF tyindex

Anyone got any clue?

tyindex is used with tystudio, not tytools. tyokay?

Tyanks for the response. Yes, I know that. I didn't say anything about tytools except that I had it installed and the command-line stuffs working on my computer (and they infact come from tystudio). I do in fact know that tyindex and tyserver come off of their own, series-dependent binary package. I also realize that I need tyindex to work before I can use tystudio. Sorry if that confused you.

I had asked chrsturbo who changed this GPL program to publish what changes were made to the source code. Does anyone have the source changes? I could roll those changes into a tydemux executable so you wouldn't need tyindex.

edit: I guess you would still have to make the cut file somehow (and I guess you would need tystudio to do that). Maybe I could re-compile tystudio (I never tried that).

...so the idea here is to have the indexing performed (correctly) by tyeditor/tystudio? That would be a good thing, in order to pull all possible processing off the TiVo. It might be a hassle for OS X types like me, but doable.

tyindex does do part of it's job correctly --- updates the "nowshowing" file in the index/ directory, but otherwise it's a black box that is broken, at least on my TiVo.
