I've been successfully using pyTivo/Kmttg for years now. Many thanks to all involved! Haven't had a need to download a program from my Series 2 to my PC for awhile but this past week when I started kmttg, chose (1) program and chose "Start Job" I received the following error; 1st line - tivodecode failed (exit code: 9) - check command: "D:/Blair/Tivo/kmttg Videos/tivodecode.exe" -mak MAK --out....etc. 2nd line - read chunk data: No error 3rd line - seek: No error 4th line - Encryption by Qualcomm The only thing new in my setup is the actual Series 2 DT which I replaced with another Series 2 DT with a larger HDD this past January. My replacement Tivo was recognized by both pyTivo & kmttg without issues until I went to download program off Tivo onto my PC. pyTivo works without a hitch, in that I can transfer videos off PC onto Series 2 which I do frequently. The transferring of programs from Tivo to PC is failing though kmttg sees all programs on the Tivo to the point I can choose whatever I like, it just won't start the decoding process. The correct MAK is listed and nothing jumps out at me when viewing the "configuration". I'm using Windows XPsp3 and version of kmttg is v0p7 ,which as stated, worked flawlessly for me. Java has been kept up-to-date. The initial instinct is to install the latest version, but I hesitate in that everything has been working well and I don't want to make matters potentially worse without further insight. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!!
