What should I expect ReadyTivo to do?

Postby mathewbeall » Tue Mar 08, 2011 12:37 am

Hi Folks,

I am trying to understand the functionality of ReadyTivo. I had some initial problems with it archiving all my shows all the time, but I updated to ReadyTivo 1.3.6 and that all seems to be good now (no more table insert errors).

However - I have shows on my Tivo which I have "deleted" and no longer show up on my Tivo, but are still archived on my ReadyNas. I assume the idea is that when I delete it off of my Tivo it should be deleted off of my ReadyNAS, right?

Thanks,

Matt

But you have far more space on the NAS than on the TiVo. So you may delete a recording off the TiVo but still want to be able to stream it from the NAS. ReadyTiVO will archive any recordings marked Keep Until I Delete. I would think if you want to delete it from both, you'd need to delete it separately on both.

Is that the intent? I look at it as a backup in case my Tivo hard drive crashes - which has occurred before. Having to manually manage it is slightly annoying, but I guess if that is the intent and there is no option to change the behavior I am stuck...
