- Use the Galleon/Configure menu on your Start menu to run the Galleon configuration GUI.
- To run the GUI, open a new shell and do these commands:
You will need to leave this window open to run the GUI.
- Run the Galleon configuration GUI from the Galleon bin directory: gui.sh
- For those with a headless
system, you can run the configuration GUI remotely by adding the IP
address of the Galleon server as a parameter to the launch command in the gui.sh script.
- Note: The Galleon server must run before you can run the configuration GUI. Any changes to the server properties will only take effect once you restart the Galleon server.
Galleon is configured using a configuration GUI.
When the configuration GUI is launched for the first time, the following steps are required to configure Galleon:
- Configure the server properties:
Use the File/Properties menu option to enter your server details.
Follow the instructions in the following tutorial.
Name: The name of the server sent to TiVo.
Version: The Galleon version.
Reload: The default reload period for internet content to be downloaded.
Skin: The skin to use for the look-and-feel of Galleon.
Generate Thumbnails: Whether thumbnail versions of images are generated at system startup.
Debug Logging: Enable debug logging.
Disable Timeout: Disable TiVo timeout from HME apps. TiVo added a timeout feature in 7.2 which will jump back to live TV after 15 mins of inactivity in an HME app. HME apps need to respond to the
timeout to tell TiVo not to timeout. This is useful as a screensaver, but some folks have TV's where screen burn is not a problem, so they can
use this option to disable timeouts. By default if you have enabled the music player screensaver, Galleon will not allow TiVo to timeout to live TV
while you are playing music. If the app is anywhere else, like on a menu and the timeout occurs and you have not disabled the option, then Galleon will allow TiVo to timeout.
Recordings Path: The directory to save all ToGo downloaded video files.
Media Access Key: The MAK of your TiVo's.
PC Port: The port on the local PC used to communicate with TiVo.
PC IP Address: The IP Address of the PC running the Galleon server. For computers with multiple network interface cards, it might be neccessary to specify which network interface is on the private network.
