    I don't know what to tell you. It works for me.

    Have you looked in the Galleon logs?

    Do you have Samples.jar in the gallion\hme directory also? maybe that is required since it is necessary for MovieLoader to operate?

    EDIT: hmmm, got it to work on the other HD Tivo. I guess I'll reinstall mfs_ftp.
    Inserts were broken in general for me. Turns out I had missed commenting out one of the Event lines. Do a manual insert and make sure it works OK for you.

    I had problems with inserts at first too. mfs_ftp has gotten quite convoluted with all the separate binary downloads and patches, and whatnot. Might be time for somebody to put together a new distro package of it for S2 6.x units?

    That's unlikely, given the current legal state of it. Maybe I'll write a cheat-sheet for installing it.

    Galleon in Linux

    I've got my Linux installation of Galleon loading the MovieLoader app just fine, but I can't figure out where to put the MovieLoader.properties file. I tried the Galleon "apps" folder and /root (I'm running Galleon as root for now), but neither seemed to be correct.

    If I run MovieLoader as a standalone app, it loads the .properties file just fine.

    Anybody have any idea where to put the .properties file on a Linux box when running the app through Galleon?


    P.S. This app ROCKS! Thanks so much for all the work you've all done on it thusfar.

    What somebody could do, if they were inclined, is unify all of those various patches that are going around into one single patch. Most of the people who made those patches probably wouldn't care if you did this that I know of.

    The major patches I am aware of are:

    Jamies patch to speed up inserts
    Jamies patch to use mfs_uberexport
    Another patch (don't remember by who) to add compatibility with 6.x versions.

    IIRC there were a few others as well that added a few nifty things, but I don't remember what all they were. The easiest way to do this would be to incrementally apply them to mfs_ftp one by one until you get everything you want, and then run a diff of that against the latest official mfs_ftp. Then you have a nice single patch that does it all, and you can e.g. post that into the files forum, along with instructions on how to update mfs_ftp to be up to speed with the latest community modifications.

    Before PMing me: Iím not your personal tech support. If you have a question, ask in public so I don't have to repeat if somebody else asks. If you want images or slices, use emule. I will ignore all support PMs.

    Sponsor a vegetarian! I have taken the pledge, how about you?

    Actually I thought of merging the patches today also... I began writing a mfs_ftp instructions thread after reading this post.

    ...I made a .tar with symlinks to the files mfs_ftp needs to write to in /var (so the user can run mfs_ftp in /mfs_ftp/) and also with just the s2 mfs-utils binaries that mfs_ftp needs.
    In the instructions, I'm going to have the user make the cache folder and the port.3105.log file in /var and then my .tar will have the symlinks to those.


    Jamie mentioned to me a few months ago that he's been discouraging the use of the insert patches after some bug reports from bcc I think. I've noticed some issues myself with the insert patches and ty-ffmpeg created .ty's.... so I don't think I will include it in my instructions.

    How are you launching Galleon? If you switch to the bin directory and then enter run.sh, I would guess the current directory is the bin directory.

    I've updated the announcement post with a minor enhancement to MovieLoader. You can now specify the properties file or show directory on the command line.

    This also means it can be specified in Galleon's launcher.txt file.

    I thought of that last night after posting, but I had already shut things down for the night, so I didn't bother double-checking.

    But now I see your next post mentioning that this is no longer an issue, so I'm just gonna move forward.

    Thanks again for everything you've done. This is GREAT!

    gfb107,

    Quick thing I noticed. In the announcement you mention placing the .jar file in the galleon hme directory. I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be the apps directory. At least that's how mine is working.

    The Galleon web site says to put it in the hme directory. See http://galleon.tv/content/view/41/47/

Unlike most web browsers, however, most standard java xml parsers won't tolerate such nonsense. It may be possible to put the parser into a more lax parsing mode, or, ideally, we patch mfs_ftp to spit out well formed xml.

    In the mean time, you can manually edit the xml and change & to & or and. Alternatively, put the show back on the tivo manually (if it's not still there), use TWP to edit the program title/description and re-download it.
    Maybe I should change MovieLoader to look for a .xml file before looking in the .ty/.ty+/.tmf file for xml data. A user could then extract the xml data and tweak it for MovieLoader, but still keep to original mfs_ftp data in the file.

    I stand corrected. FWIW, I can confirm that it works when placed in the apps directory as well.
