Hey everybody, first of all I'd like to thank everyone for all the work they've put into this project. Now I've starting using it I couldn't do without it. I've played around with the different forks and have decided to use lucasnz's fork mainly for the web GUI. However I have a nigling issue that driving me crazy. Most of my videos, the title is displayed twice.
I have determined that the first title is derived from the actual file name and the the second title is pulled from the metadata (edited using itunes in my case). However most of my files display both even when both titles are identical.
I played around with changing both file name and the title field through itunes and this screenshot is the best result I could get. In this screenshot the only issues are the Harry Potter and Micheal Jackson movies. I have tried all types of combination of file and title names. I still have another 200 or so files doing the same thing though.
Is there some easy fix to resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.
I take it this behaviour is the same for all the versions of pyTivo you've tried? I think my version is the same as wmcbrines in this respect. I'm not 100% clear on where the metadata that itunes is creating is stored. Is that information stored in the file or in the metadata text file?
Assuming the behaviour is the same in wmcbrines version he may have some tips to "fix" this.
Thanks for the quick response. Yeah it was the same for all forks I tried.
I've had a bit of progress now though. I added a fake Show name then applied (using itunes), then removed Show name and applied. All this has done is changed the creations date to todays date. After that I ran a new/clean start of pytivo (deleted old copy, downloaded and started new copy of pytivo using old config file). Now all movies are displaying correctly. Now I just need to do something similar with my tv shows.
Another thing while your here, have you had any luck pulling from tivo. Whenever I try all I get is an .mpg but with only the audio.
