HMO and Mac OS X - process name for Rendezvous

What process is used to share music from iTunes to my TiVo? While I was trying to get a second Mac (G4 iMac, OS X 10.3) to connect to the TiVo through Airport/HMO, I looked for the process that does the job on the first Mac (G5, OS X 10.3).
Assuming that the files accessed would be in my iTunes folder, I started to play musiic from my iTunes folder on the TiVo and did lsof | grep iTunes in the Terminal. Files that are shared with other computers via Rendezvous (even Windows) show up as a DAAP process, but this time I didn't find anything. So, does anybody knoow what process is in charge of the connection between a Mac and a HMO-enabled TiVo?
In addition, is there any known issue about connecting from TiVo to a second Mac? Sharing works between our other Macs, but the iMac doesn't show up on the TiVo (Well, might be a problem with TiVo Desktop - any suggestions what might be likely culprits?)

Thanks for any help or suggestion - Ralph

Hi Ralph,

The TiVo HMO runs as a generic 'Java' process.

If I am reading your post correctly, it sounds like you are launching iTunes on the Mac and trying to share with the TiVo. Unfortunately, it will not work quite that way. You have to install the TiVo Desktop Software for the Mac, or JavaHMO, in order for the TiVo to pick up on your music library and photos. The nice thing is - you don't have to have iTunes open to share the music

Hope that helps,

You've obviously got TiVo Desktop installed on the Mac that you can see from your TiVo -- are you sure you've got it installed and configured on the iMac as well?

As to why you don't see the process using 'lsof | grep iTunes' is that on most networks, all of the data for a given MP3 file can be transferred to the TiVo in a very short span of time (on the order of several seconds), so the file isn't held open all that long.

Thanks for your suggestions. I DID install the TiVo desktop on the iMac, but that certainly doesn't rul out that I didn't make some bone hhead mistake somewhere further down the road. I appreciate the information about the transfer mode for mp3 files - with iTunes sharing the connection is maintained while the file is played on the other computer; I didn't think that the files were actually transferred to the TiVo.

You might want to make sure that TiVo Desktop is installed and turned on on both of your Macs as well as making sure that Mac firewall is configured to allow TiVo Server to broadcast. There are more tips on our support site:

Thanks!

I went back and checked the firewall settings on the iMac. And indeed, the port for the TiVo desktop was not open. I had thought that the iTunes (port 3689)and iPhoto (port 8770) sharing options would also cover TiVo HMO, but that's ports 2190, 5353 and 8101, all the way at the bottom of the window. I changed that, and now everything is fine. Thanks for all the advice and information!

TiVo Desktop on Mac OSX works with iTunes and iPhoto but it doesn't require them to be running at all.

iTunes and iPhoto are used to manage the content -- set up playlists, albums, etc.

It actually works quite well.

IMHO - part of the reason why there's not nearly as much interest in JavaHMO for Mac OSX as there is in the Windows version.
