FWIW: I decided to purchase a HR10-250 off of Ebay.
<Sigh> Guess I should head off the the noob section and start reading.
I'm in the exact same predicament, as I picked up a HDTV yesterday.
If for no other reason than this community, I would prefer to stay with TiVo and DTV, which means the HR10-250, but I am trying...
Take a look here
You don't want to use EtiVo, but what about the standalone Windows Media Encoder "wmenc.exe" application? There are some samples in the WME SDK, including a pre-built batch encoding application...
:o R.I.F. NOscramble vs UNscramble
I'm using noscramble = "insmod it and then you are good for anything in the future"
I've been using the same noscramble_mbm.o forever and have had no problems with my S1 Dtivo (SAT-T60) and 3.5-01-1-011.
If a 1 hour show is 1 GigaByte (It obviously varies), that's approximately 2,300 kilobits per second. (If my math is correct)

Basically I'm trying to build a web remote for my S1 Dtivo without having to use TiVoWeb to send each command.

Wow, so what's new?
No telling how far off this is, but at least they're talking about it
EtiVoWeb is created automatically, however, IIRC, the "virtual" directory (//host/videofilesvirtualdirectory) is NOT created automatically.

Thanks, I deleted all of the bad EtivoInfo.xml files, EtiVo rebuilt them and all is running smoothly. I really thought I tried that. :o
I also have large enough single EtiVo drive, but I would assume, for those that store EtiVo files on multiple drives, that having an identical structure on both systems would be the preferred method....

What exactly is a problematic show. I noticed a few pesky files that wouldn't behave (deleted & re-encoded them) when I first installed the latest version (I've only been running it a few days), but...
That really does look nice.
1. Ability to encode a show with more than one profile at one time, ie. High/low bitrates (obviously WME would have to make 2 separate passes).

An enthusiastic vote for customizable nested file folders based upon TiVo metadata, even better if TV shows could different from Movies

Fantastic News! ;)
Have my fingers crossed that Stealthdave & tx413 will come through with the VLC/TyStreamer Redo.
VLC seems to be the key to a lot of my hopes for future streaming.
if you just want to stream TYs that are on the Tivo to a PC on your local network, the "easiest" way is to use the streaming links in the TiVoWeb nowshowing list.
my idea of cutting edge is apparenlty a few years old. ;)
I'm curious to know if you actually launch WMP on the remote machine?
I finally set up orenosp on my PC for secure SSL access to my PC and TiVoWeb. So now I'm trying to access EtiVo. Most of it works. Streaming video via the "File" link and the built-in EtiVo...
If I understand you correctly, I've had that happen to me, where a SINGLE CLICK on a file (not a double click) caused windows to crash. I rarely have files that big, so I don't think size had...
Finally got a chance to try out MeVo. It's a very nice addition, thank you.
my idea didn't involve TivoWeb
I did finally properly alter the ASX that mfs_ftp produces such that Meedio can read the embedded TiVo URL, but I'm going to give this a try over the weekend.
Clever, but I took his comment ...

I have seen some automations scripts to process a directory of "music" files into "WMA" using WME, so I can't imagine that it would be that hard to tweak it for "ty" videos.
Ahem, that's why we're here! ;)
Well, that is the hard part (for me at least). I've tinkered around and gotten the WME SDK samples to work, but not any type of scripting from a web page. Nor have I found anyone who has done it,...

(Yeah, I realized after the 2nd "fantastic" that it sound contrived, but it wasn't)

AFAIK, IIS is not officially available for Windows XP Home edition, however you can read this http://www.15seconds.com/issue/020118.htm
Do you have Xvid Installed? AFAICT, Once I installed Xvid codec, things started working for me.
Not an expert in the least, but here goes (I'm using IIS and I also get the "exiting" message)
instead of "C:\...." delete the "C:" and change your backslashes to forward slashes.
np, but all credit to Masnark.
I would suggest stopping the etivosvr service and running it from command prompt "EtiVoSrv -c" to see if you get a security dialog popup.

Masnark is now looking at the auto-etivo by a shows ratings.
Is it possible (easier) to add a show's rating as a number, such as 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 to the XML data created by mfs_ftp, as I believe...
I think this has to do with Bash being commented out in the "ini" file.
Great news! Slower transfers with a higer failure rate is just what I've been wanting for, but was afraid to ask for. :D
Ran the "-C" and got a Windows popup "Do you want to continue blocking" Working now, thanks.
Installed the new version Server & WebUI, everything installed very smoothly. (Nice Job)
I'm am having trouble with Manual Encoding. The WebUI fails to fetch My Tivo's Now Shopwing list.
Excellent news, and as always, thank you for all of your hard work.

Luckily, "currently" is in the past and once I am done with the current modifications, this should be a breeze as long as MfsFtp has that...
If you have the TyShow filter and Windows Media Encoder installed on your PC you can manually transcode to WMV. Of course, this really has nothing to do with EtiVo.

I recently had my 2 SAT T60 hd's go out and so I've been re-learning everything, but the "echo" was a new problem that I never had before.
sorry for such a noob question
where can I find the required PPC version of "find"?
for a S1 DTivo
sorry for being slightly off topic.
I'm trying to use this with Meedio (the successor to MyHTPC) as a front end.
Unfortunately Meedio's internal video player can't read the ".asx" file's...
$50 is a starting point for me.
1. Enable a filter for AutoTivo to only encode shows with a 3 Thumbs Up rating,
2. Probably not too important for those who use AutoTivo, but the Manual Queuing Page could be more functional with...
Thanks, I remember zipping through the config file changing hostname to e:\videos\etivo.
sorry, I was rushing out of my office and wanted to post before I left. I also meant to say "very nice work"

New Version Up and running, but when I connected from office, I noticed a few media links to "Localhost" or "e:\videos\etivo" without any reference to the EtiVo server.
Fist, I'm really glad to see someone else who wants to combine Meedio & TiVo. I don't see myself getting rid of my DirecTV/TiVos for a PC based PVR (MeedioTV) any time soon.
Second, a Meedio...
Is anyone here using Meedio? More to the point, has anyone developed an importer to populate Meedio's Media Library with recordings on the TiVo. So that Meedio would have show details as well as the...
EDIT: I'm still an *****
This is what I'm trying to understand at the moment. If I open/forward port 80 to my XPPro machine that has Etivo running what exactly can I do to button it down a bit, security wise.
Oh, but it can be sooooo much more. How about the be all end all remote Tivo Internet Server. :)
I currently connect to my TiVo/network via Linksys VPN routers at both ends Office-Home, so I can't be at a friends house or on the road and access the machines.
All of these guy connecting...
Yes, the initial installation failed because of the previous install. Although now that I think about it, the service was "probably" running. DOH!

Instructions, I had to uninstall the previous version, install, and restart EtiVo server service. I think you also need to delete the existing config files, otherwise the new ones don't install
Rather than repost, click here to see what I'm thinking of.
Continuing the general discussion here, as there are many threads discussing various pieces of the puzzle. mfs_ftp, TyShow, EtiVo, Internet Streaming and others.
I am not necessarily looking...
Wow, I have the intermitant lockups as well and an IR repeater.
I just don't think I can live without it becasue TiVo is in a closed cabinet on the opposite side of the room of the TV. Ever try...
Ah that's cool.
Hehe, actually I'm pestering you and Masnark, because Riley never wanted to share his 3 thumbs up auto extraction util. :eek: (Customer support and all that)
EtiVo could have a different option for each setting, Exclude, Download only, and/or Download & Encode.
Completely OT, IMO "eTiVo" looks better than "EtiVo".:)
Ooooh, custom folders would be very nice. I've never tried to tinker with the internals of mfs_ftp or any other hacks. Smart move on my part, Trust me.
I've asked Riley about accessing the Thumbs Up in the mfs_ftp thread.
Does mfs_ftp have access to the Thumbs Up rating for a particular show? Assuming it doesn't, can it be added?
Yes, there is definitely a need for something to keep everything from being encoded. I'm specifically thinking of the shows my wife and kids record. Would "excluded" shows still show up in the...
Can you tweak it to allow downloading by "thumbs up" rating in addition to the date.
Feature Suggestion (stolen from Riley)
A filter/setting that would Auto EtiVo to Automatically download only those shows that have a certain "thumbs up" rating.
Didn't want to hijack Masnark's thread.
Masnark has a very nice setup, but with slightly different goals in mind. His EtivoServer automatically/maunally downloads TY files from the TiVo to a PC...
I don't think, but I haven't been keeping a close eye on TyTools.
If the TY or TY+ was downloaded with any recent version MFS_FTP, it has the XML at the end of the file. (I forget the first version that included the xml, but it's been a while.)
This fits in my...
Everything working now. Just took a clean re-install of WinXP :eek:
Now the requests, er, I mean thoughts :D

All went well with the EtiVo server installation, did a couple of manual encodings.
Ran into trouble with the EtiVoWeb/IIS stuff. Initially I was getting the text version of one of the "aspx"...
Ah, that what I was afraid someone would say. I was just thinking if WMP can access, pull, and play the files (I forget if it's via mfs_ftp or vserver), then WME could do the same, but I guess it's...
I'm also looking for a better solution to streaming over the internet from the TiVo (as well as local files on an XP box).
Question: Can Windows Media Encoder ( WME ) be activated...
Sounds great and thanks again.

Curious about what happened with the WET54G? were you using 2 or did you have an Access Point?...
I used to feel this way, but it doesn't seem likely to happen, and in practice, TiVo's limited storage and cpu power aren't up to the task, IMO. TiVo just can't hold enough video for me and even if...
hey whadda ya know, it worked
That damn TBS. It's done it to us all.
In early 2003 I said the following:
Well, I've been a happy camper for a long time thanks to your efforts. It's all gravy from here out.
You could plug an 802.11g bridge into the TurboNet
DOH!, I hear this AFTER I converted over 250GB+ of TMFs to TYs. Well It'll be worth it if TyShow can handle S1 Dtivo streams
Does anyone have any idea what this update does?
Well, it's a bit late to tell me not to put stuff in the /var/hack folder. It's there, it's got stuff in it, and it's likely to stay there, so back to the hunt, anyone..... anyone......
For a DTivo, you probably have to kill_initrd once again for the hacks to stick.
Anyway back to my question....
Yes, /var generally survives, but it is possible for /var to get wiped out on...
If an impending Service Update is on it's way for S1 DTivos, what is the best way to backup my /var/hack/ folder, so that when the inevitable happens, restoring the Tivo will be a bit easier.
Just read AVS thread where someone did get a new service update for Series 1 D-Tivo.
Uh oh. Tech support, get ready. :D

a couple of things that I did (all from Riley's suggestions), you may have to do a bit more research for specifics, but I get 1MB inserts (WinXP SP1, Linksys BEFSX41 router)
Are you talking about mplayer?
If so, mplayer can play them both. TY and TY+ are "now" identical files, both have the insert xml data at the end. The only difference is the file etensions. ...
Yes, I have viewed TYs via myHTPC, VERY NICE. The built in myHTPC video module uses WMP, which is why I am so stoked about TyShow.
For a while there, FOX NY was using >1GB for 30 minutes, but yes average is about 1GB for an hour.

Don't know why you're losing connection, but before you start downloading do a little math on your connection speed to see if you really want to try.
Typical DSL "UP" speed (home TiVo) is 256...
Oh, I feel a stomach ache coming on... I just may have to leave work early.
propman07 and I both have "Series 1" D-Tivos. hmm, I quess I now recall that d7O has a S2 DTivo, correct?
You have a D-Tivo. d70, said he would take a look at some D-Tivo streams to see if he can get it to work. So far I haven't seen anyone say that Tyshow works with D-Tivo streams.
Thanks, but I never could get the "SendKey" script working even from bash, let alone a batch file, kept getting error about a parenthesis or bracket not being closed. I'll do some more...
Sorry, the question was vaque. I just figured that if anyone had done it, they would understand the question. I don't want Girder inside the TiVo.
DTiVo can be controlled via infrared, TurboNet...
I'll just quote from the Girder site
I stopped using TMF a while ago since the new "TY" format from mfs_ftp is insertable and has the xml data at the end of the file, so that I don't have the extra TMF>Ty converversion step...
thanks for the offer, I'll upload a clip and PM you a link
Anyone using Girder to control DTivo via Lan?
I downloaded cwingert's test TY clip and it played perfectly. Sadly, it's a SA ty, and I have a DTivo. <BIG SIGH>
Is anyone having success with DTivo TyStreams and TyShow?
I previously used graphedit to render the Ty media and confirmed that the TySplitter and Mpeg2Dec Filters were both shown. As I recall, my graph looked somewhat different, I'll run it again (at work...
