I searched around for a bit for this topic but couldnt find anything. Im currently using wmcbrines latest pyTivo as well as Streambaby and using Metagenerator to get the information about the movies i have. What Im wondering is if there is anyway to download and put into the information page a small thumbnail image of the dvd cover?
[I just found an updated version of MG, ill give that a try.]
Ok I got it working on Streambaby. From what Ive read, only Tivo Premiere support the jpg movie poster thing and this is something that does not work in pyTivo without the support of something like Vidmgr?
Ok on to a new topic. Streambaby. I have both ports open inbound udp. I have it running a Win 7 64 service but for some reason I can't keep it showing in my Music, Photos, & Showcases part of Tivo. Any suggestions as to why?

Streambaby supports the .jpg images on TiVo HD and Series 3 models too. Yes you need Vidmgr to have images with pyTivo, I believe. _________________ TiVo Roamio, Win 10 64bit, Wired Ethernet
Try metagenerator 3 and pyTivoMetaGen

Vidmgr will show them as you browse, only. There's no way that we know of to transfer them to the NPL. And the same applies to browsing via HMO (the normal pyTivo interface, where the shares appear at the bottom of the NPL). Streambaby and Vidmgr can display them because they render their own interfaces via HME. _________________ My pyTivo fork . My page
