Posted: Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:47 pm Post subject: Stuck Folders on TiVo
Getting oriented as a new user, I added/named a couple of test shared folders and had things working for a short time. I deleted those shares from within Py - or I quit (don't recall) and came back and now they are gone from Py.
However, the deleted shared folder paths remain visible on my Tivo - even though they no longer exist as shares in Py.
I've restarted both - but the minute the Tivo see the computer on the network - it sees the "shares" again - even though I cannot see them.
I tried going to and trashing this file -
But no help.
On top of this I now cannot add/start new shares - so somehow it's stuck. (I tried just adding the same path and name share all over again - but it just sees the old path from the Tivo side and won't add anything new). I also tried uninstalling Py with AppZapper (then reinstalling) - but it may have missed some lower level bits in the system. Didn't help.
I may go back and try AppZapper again, plus any additional manual uninstalling hand selected bits from the system to try to get those shares removed, so some input here might help.
Other than the Program itself, all I see is -
This is not a pyTivoX forum but a support forum for the original pyTivo. pyTivoX is a wrapper program made to simplify/prettify pyTivo and Streambaby on the Mac. It is no longer developed/maintained and is not supported by the author and is missing functionality within Lion 10.7.
Is pyTivoX somehow made to start up with your Mac? You should not be seeing the shares on your TiVo if you have deleted the app and all the files you mentioned above, emptied your Trash and restarted your Mac, network router and both TiVo's.
I recommend not using pyTiVoX anymore and just follow the installation instructions on the official pyTivo wiki. It's more difficult to setup at first but once done it is easier to manage with the web interface. You can follow the instructions to automatically start at login so you don't have to look at it as well.
All you need to get started besides reading the wiki is to download a copy of pyTivo and a copy of FFmpeg for OS X
I'll take a look at the (non-X) Wiki and go from there.
FWIW I think I figured out the problem - or at least was able to finally resolve it by uninstalling PyTivoX - plus - removing the shared drive from the network in System Preferences... Once I shared it again the "stuck folders" were gone! _________________ OSX - 10.7.2 - EyeTV3.5.3/Toast11.0.4/pyTivoX1.3/TivoS3Premiere/Handbrake
