pyTivo is both an HMO and GoBack server. Similar to TiVo Desktop pyTivo loads many standard video compression codecs and outputs mpeg2 video to the TiVo. However, pyTivo is able to load MANY more file types than TiVo Desktop.

---Description pyTivo lets you stream most videos from your PC to your unhacked tivo. It uses the HMO server protocol. It will guess if your video is 4:3 or 16:9 and pad your video if it thinks it is needed. It will not transcode an mpeg that is supported by your tivo. ---Requirements OS = Anything that will run python and ffmpeg, which I think is anything. Known to work on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Python - http://www.python.org/download/ - You need at least version 2.4 of python pywin32 (only to install as a service) - http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=78018&package_id=79063 - Windows users only and only if you intend to install as a service ---Usage You need to edit pyTivo.conf in 3 places 1. ffmpeg= 2. [<name of share>] 3. path= ffmpeg should be the full path to ffmpeg including filename. path is the absolute path to your media. run pyTivo.py ---To install as a service in Windows run pyTivoService.py --startup auto install ---To remove service run pyTivoService.py remove ---Notes pyTivo was created by Jason Michalski ("armooo").
