I recently changed computers to a new 64-bit Windows machine. I loaded pyTivo, and it runs fine from the Windows desktop. We have two Tivos, one Premiere and on Series 3. Both behave the same, and both worked with pyTivo as a service on my old 32-bit XP computer.

When I try to run as a service, it runs but My Videos is empty.

I found several similar posts, and here is what I have tried already:

1) Putting a LOGON in the service parameters, tried a user account and an adminstrator account

2) Re-installing pywin32 (64-bit version)

3) Putting the path = filename in UNC format

4) Opening ports 5353 and 9032 in Windows Firewall in both directions

After all of these, I have the same result.

Here is my config file:

port = 9032
ffmpeg = c:\Program Files\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe
tivodecode = c:\Program Files\PyTivo\bin\TIVODECODE
tdcat = c:\Program Files\PyTivo\bin\tdcat
tivo_mak = 3217XXXXXX
togo_path = \users\public\videos\togo
debug = on

[My Videos]
type = video
path = c:\users\Public\Videos

[My Music]
type = music
path = c:\users\public\music\Library2



log.txt looks like this

INFO:pyTivo:Last modified: Sat Apr 20 18:23:56 2013

INFO:pyTivo:pyTivo is ready.
INFO:pyTivo.beacon:Unregistering: My Music My Videos

After all of this, still the same. Everything works great when run from a desktop, and nothing in My Videos when running as a service.

Thanks for your help.
