I am using pytivo on my Premiere to push multiple files. However, they will not transfer until I reboot the unit.

Any idea on why this is happening? What can I do to fix?

Please help. Thanks.

Well, I know this doesn't help, but it's not really a pyTivo issue. This is the push process:

1. User selects some files, submits form to pyTivo.
2. pyTivo contacts the "mind server" at tivo.com, and tells it to tell the TiVo to fetch the files.
3. At some random time of its own choosing, the TiVo contacts the mind server, and gets the list.
4. The TiVo requests the files from pyTivo (very similar to a pull request from the My Shows list).

We have absolutely no control over step 3. It sounds like, by rebooting, you're giving the TiVo the kick it needs to start step 3. It should be doing that on its own, generally in some kind of reasonable time, like a few minutes. But if it doesn't, there's nothing we can do about it, sorry.

P.S. IMHO the best fix is to ignore the convoluted push system, and just pull from the My Shows menu instead. The big advantage of push used to be that it could transfer H.264 without transcoding, but that's now available for pulls as well (with ts=on), except with Series 3 TiVos.

Thank you for responding.

Was wondering if my Tivo box itself (an original Premiere unit) would have something do to with the issue?

It's quite old and was not sure if a newer box would speed up the process?

From your response, it sounds like that would not improve the performance.

Does the "pull" feature also allow to you to place the files into specific folders?

Or is that only offered with the "push" feature?
