 Posted: Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:35 pm    Post subject: Pytivo won't start when PC starts-also NAS question I recently had to do a reinstall on a new hard drive. I got pytivo working, but it doesn't run automatically when the computer starts - if I do a restart of the PC, I have to manually start pytivo. Could someone help me figure out what I'm missing? Also, I tried to set up a second folder for videos (the first one is on the PC) and have the 2nd one be on my QNAP NAS. The NAS folder name shows up on my tivos, but no files show up. I've tried entering both the drive letter address for the NAS and also the network path, and it's not working either way. I'm not sure what else to do. Any help with this would be appreciated!

When I run pytivo from a command prompt, it gives this output, which includes an error message that I don't understand. Can anyone help me with this?

As mentioned, my issue is that pytivo doesn't keep running and has to be restarted.

Thanks

If that doesn't fix it, put in an ffmpeg option with the correct path for your system. I'm not sure that will do it, since I'd expect to be seeing a different error if that were the problem, but it should be fixed anyway. _________________My pyTivo fork . My page
