I want to stream movies from my house mates PC to my tivo.
Do I need to install the software on his computer or can i just install it on mine.
All computers are networked together and we currently stream to an xbox in the lounge room but I want to be able to stream to my tivo in my room but I don't know if he will want me installing software on his comp.
Thanks in advance for any help
Normally it's recommended that you run pyTivo on the machine storing the videos for best performance, but it will also work from a second computer that has remote access to a a network share containing the videos.
If you're on Windows, you need to configure pyTivo to use a UNC patch (\\hostname\sharename) and then you need to change the userid/password the pyTivo Windows service runs under to be a local account that has access to the Windows network share. If you use the Windows installer, then you'll be prompted for the service account info.
