    tmf / ty+ tivoweb extraction module:

    here's a basic tivoweb module for extracting recordings as tmf or ty (ty+ actually). produces the same tmf/ty+ as mfs_ftp so they're insertable.

    platform independant tcl - works on 2.x/3.x/4.x/5.x s1/s2 - just need the appropriate s1/s2 binaries (mfs_stream & mfs_tarstream, available in the mfs_ftp threads) in tivoweb-tcl/bin_ppc or tivoweb-tcl/bin_mips


    edit: this requires TivoWebPlus rc4 or later

    ooooooh, ei-de-die-de-die-de-die.. (yes I watch too much who'se line)

    if you allready have mfs_ftp installed you can just create symlinks to the mfs_stream & mfs_tarstream binaries

    ln -s /var/mfs_ftp/mfs_stream /tivoweb-tcl/bin_xxx/mfs_stream

    ln -s /var/mfs_ftp/mfs_tarstream /tivoweb-tcl/bin_xxx/mfs_tarstream


    otherwise you'll need to install them to the correct location


    tivoweb is NOT multithreaded, it'll be totally unresponsive during extraction

    if you have d7o's direcshow installed on your pc you'll need to right-click save-as to save tyfiles

    this module tested with IE & getright

    Extract Notes

    The readme says to put extract.itcl into tivoweb-tcl, but I think it goes in modules.

    When I click on the name, it downloads a 1 kb .tmf file. When I click on ty, it opens media player (because I have TyShow installed) and then media player crashes.

    This is on a T60 running Extreme 2.5.2.

    Riley's TivoWeb Plus Extract module

    I get the same problem as described below. Any ideas?

    Also I don't have the mfs_stream and mfs_tar_stream modules mentioned as I have a series 1 and I think they are series 2 only?

    Copied from the TivoWeb Plus thread:

    Just thought this information should be in this thread, as its not in the readme.

    What tiivohoe said - just download the correct mfs_ftp executables and put them in your bin_ppc directory. The module works like a charm - and lets me export thru my authenticating proxy (avoiding opening non secured ports thru the firewall...).

    I have the TyShow filters installed, so I simply choose "Save to disk" when I click on the link, and it'll save the file. In my experience, I don't get the same performance over my LAN as I do with mfs_ftp, and TiVoWebPlus is completely unresponsive during a download, but neither of those are terribly surprising.

    Only getting partial files.

    The module is working great for .ty files on half hour recordings but I'm only getting partial files (about 40 min) on one hour recordings.

    Seems to be abig speed trade-off for using this.

    I downloaded a show with this module and then the same show with mfs_ftp.

    through the module I got 1.3Mb/s; with mfs_ftp 1.7Mb/s.

    Since the code doing the sending is identical, it must be an ineffciency in IE.

    no, that's cool, the intent was to make extracting insertable recordings as easy as possible - a package manager version to simplify installation is perfect

    scratching my head

    Code:
    <PRE><B>INTERNAL SERVER ERROR</B>
    --cut here--
    serve_tmf '{Everybody Loves Raymond}{Slave}{WCBS}{2086045}.tmf' '0' '0'
    can't read "bin_dir": no such variable
    --cut here--
    </PRE>
    </BODY></HTML>
    /var/hack/tivoweb-tcl/bin_ppc exists and is chmodded 777

    executables were copied from a working mfs_ftp setup

    I have a SAS1 sony

    although it would appear that all i have to do is define where bin_ppc is in the bin_dir to get it to work....
