I'm trying to get pyTivo to work with a DAP-1513 wireless bridge and a new Elite. The MyMovies share shows up in My Shows and transfers work iff I use the TiVo Wireless G adapter. When I connect the Elite to the DAP-1513, MyMovies disappears, but I can still download files from the Elite using kmttg and https://<IP address>/nowplaying/index.html. So basic wireless connectivity, including EPG updates etc. works.
I suspect the bridge is blocking some kind of broadcast the Elite needs to see. Do I need to configure the bridge in some special way to make the pyTivo service visible to the Elite?
Thanks for your help.
P.s. I'm using the latest wcmbrine pyTivo from git, pulled yesterday, on FreeBSD -current.
I just spoke with D-Link tech support. The person said the DAP-1513 does not support forwarding of broadcast packets such as used by the TivoBeacon and Bonjour protocols. AIUI, TivoBeacon uses IP broadcast packets to 2190/udp whereas Bonjour uses an IP multicast to 5353/udp, and both end up being encapsulated in a MAC-layer broadcast packet, which the DAP-1513 doesn't broadcast to the Ethernet side.
