TiVo Publisher Version 1.3

Note: Version 1.31 is now available for download.

Version 1.3 is now available for download here. This update adds the following features:

  • FLAC, OGG, M4A (AAC unprotected) audio formats are now supported.

  • Video Aspect Ratios are preserved.

  • Updated ffmpeg to newer release (2/5/2008, r11870).

  • TagLib# library is now used to read audio file tags.

  • Additional Video Metadata fields are now viewable on the TiVo (e.g., year, cast, ratings).

  • Updated the Video Metadata Editor to support additional fields and added Search (using thetvdb.com, movie-xml.com, or Amazon). (See the previous post regarding the WHS data bug.)

  • Re-arranged a few of the items in the Settings window.

  • Added Audio Bitrate slider to the transcode settings.

  • Better support for TiVo Series3/HD hardware.

The following bugs are also fixed:

  • Encrypted TIVO files now transfer back correctly.

  • Video folders work properly (1 subfolder down).

  • Music shuffle now works properly.

  • If a video transcoding error occurs (i.e., ffmpeg encodes no data), an error image is sent instead to notify that there was a problem; the ffmpeg error is also logged.

  • Playlists now ignore missing files instead of stopping.

You will need to uninstall the previous version through the WHS Console, copy the MSI to the Software\Add-Ins folder, and install the new version.

  • When prompted for credentials during installation, enter ".\Administrator" for the user and your Server password for the password. Note: If you receive a message that users cannot be mapped, then double check the username. It may be case sensitive.

The Frequently Asked Questions document contains more detailed setup instructions and a description of settings.
