I just installed the PyTivo and my TIVOHD can only play .mpg files. All other video types are shown on the list but when I press play, it just sits there and does not play. Any help would be appreciated.

I ran PyTivo in console mode and tried to run a wmv file.
This is the error it gives:

Exception happened during processing of request from ('', 37013)

Based on the error, I reckon you made pyTivo.conf.dist your pyTivo.conf, and then uncommented one of the "ffmpeg_tmpl" lines. Why you did that, I'd be interested to know. But the fix would be to either change "ffmpeg_prams" in that line to the correct "ffmpeg_pram", or to just delete the line, which would be the better solution in most circumstances.

Anyway, thanks for bringing the error in pyTiivo.conf.dist to our attention. I've fixed it in my repo.

P.S. As I look at this, it looks like it actually was ffmpeg_prams at one point. I'll have to look into it further...

OK, it was changed by this patch.
