I went through half a dozen reinstalls of python, pytivo, and ffmpeg trying to figure this out so I thought I'd share...

Not even getting as far as trying a transfer, just trying to see the file detail within the only container I have set up.

The problem turned out to be that [Server] ffmpeg was pointing at the plugins directory instead of the bin directory under pyTiVo, since the .conf file was from an older install. Lesson learned: copy aside your .conf to another directory and nuke the whole pytivo installation when reinstalling.
