Getting Started  TyTool Main Shell  GOP Editor Shell

The tserver process must be running on the TiVo in order to list, transfer, or delete the offerings in the Now Showing list.  There are three methods of arranging this. For details on the external options, see Getting Started.  TyTool also provides an internal utility under the Server pull down menu.  The Start tserver utility spawns its own little xterm window (shown above) which automatically telnets to the TiVo at the IP address specified in the TyTool Main Shell and then runs tserver on the TiVo. The xterm will not accept any input directly from the console; all messages sent across the application are produced from processes inside TyTool. The output is informational only, and can be helpful in troubleshooting communications problems with the TiVo arising while using TyTool.
