    TiVoWebPlus 1.3.1 suggestions

    Use this thread for suggestions to improve TWP modules.

    At this point Thomson is the only one actively working on providing improvements locally, but can only do so as time and inclination allows.

    If you feel you can help, please speak up.

    Peter.

    I find the Channel Grid module very useful. But one feature missing is that
    it only uses 2 colours. Scheduled recordings and suggestions both share the
    same colour. Red for on that channel and Yellow for on another channel. It
    would be more useful if scheduled recording and suggestions could be split
    into 2 separate colours. Then you could see at a glance that recording
    shown on another channel are just suggestions, the same for recordings on
    the same channel.

    Let me know what you think,

    Peter.

    Originally this suggestion was posted privately, so I'll include the reply below.

Currently timeslots that are going to be recorded are marked with a
    (dashed) red border. Timeslots that contain recordings on other channels are marked with a (dashed) yellow border, and timeslots that contain two recordings (via a dual tuner) on different channels with a solid yellow border.
    Thanks, any differentiation would be great.

    My whole house IR repeater system died the other day. So I now use the WebRemote feature of TWP a lot to control the TiVo's from a different room.

    I'm not a huge fan of the 30 sec skip feature, so I use just use 3 x FFW. But doing so using the Web Remote can be a pain.

    Would it be possible to add a single click field which sends 3 FFW commands?

    Ability to stream/copy from one TiVo to another

    One thing that would be great to see in TWP is the ability to select a show and have it copy to/play on another TiVo.

    I've got multiple TiVo's and it's a hassle going through each one seeing what I haven't watched, and then watching it. If I could just copy the file when I found it, it would be waiting on the main TiVo for whenever I got around to watching it.

    This already exists in Sync Now Playing where you can start transfers from one TiVo to the other using the TiVo GUI.

    If you did the same with TWP it would make TWP non responsive during the transfer. The same as the existing extract module does.

    As an interim fix the latest distribution has support for a fastfwd (f) and fastrwd (r) keypress within the webremote module.

    Just tried the 29th of March Distribution via the update command and it gives the following error loading the homepage.

    I have double checked the size of the download and it's 518k, so shouldn't be the googlepages issue.

    Is there a command line update command so I can roll back to the 2nd last release without wiping my custom config files ?

    Peter.

    PS does the keyboard ffw shortcut attempt to redraw the remote graphic?

    As an update I have tried 070321 on another TiVo, and it's fine.

    Then re-downloaded 070329 and updated the 2nd TiVo again, now this Tivo has the same issues as reported in the last post.

    Thank you for asking Pete!!! I wish....

    I find SmartFTP copy and pastes are unreliable as they won't always connect, so they are fiddly. Something more user friendly would be nice.

    This already exists in Sync Now Playing where you can start transfers from one TiVo to the other using the TiVo GUI.
    How well does this work, and does it work with the current version of mfs_ftp as it specifies a different version?

    I also would love the above referenced effort to enable one TiVo to view streams from other TiVos to become seemlessly intertwined into the TiVo TV and TWP Interface, so that perhaps there was a choice of which TiVo the "Now Playing" is being displayed from and work just as seamlessly. This seems the last major challenge for the TiVos, given the competing MythTV has many advantages over the TiVo including Remote viewing of TiVo's.

    I would love the TWP Header to include the TiVo status with respect to confirming the last update suceeded, Temperature and remaining disc space (or perhaps to get an email from the Tivo of these things???!) The critical issue of remaining disc space is found right at the bottom of the info page, which is tedious. It would be nice if that page were two columns, given a wide enough screen. (To minimise need to scrool up and down)

    I would love the TWP Header menu to mimic the TiVo screen menu's, they are well thought out and difficult to improve on, other than the phrases are not entirely intuitive, however they are so well known I would not dare suggest they be altered from.

    I would love one summary web page which gave the status of all the TiVo's on the LAN.
