well I am trying to get byRequest to work and am not having much luck.

Right now I have my netweork setup as follows... cable modem --> mandake 9.1 box-->Hub-->TIVO & WiN XP box.

The Win XP box can publish using TIVO desktop fine. Tivos IP is and the windows box is Tivo also is updating fine through the network. So I do not think network configuration is the problem.

I have downloaded byrequest v.41 and edited the byRequest.conf to have a line saying

audio: "TP MP3s" /mnt/win_c/Music

and then ran make (after installing gcc). It did not give me any errors so that seemed like a good sign. Oh I installed as SU by the way. Was that wrong? anyways after that I went back to my login and typed in byRequest and got the error asking for a config file so i typed in

byRequest byRequest.conf and it gave no error. ps -A confirmed it was running.

Unfortunatly Tivo was not able to find it. I tried typing in what I beleive to be the IP address of my linux box on the tivo manual enter thing (but I get confused when there are multiple net cards on it as I have 2). the IP i tried was But it still could not find anything. Any suggestions?
