    I actually tried downloading (3) different programs that were all giving me problems by using my other computer after downloading kmttg. And it stopped recording at the exact same time on that computer too.

    So, can this be as simple as coincidence that these recordings all had similar glitches and so kmttg stopped the downloading process at the times of the glitches?

    Actually it is the Tivo which stops delivering the recording at those glitches, regardless of which computer or what program you use. That is why it is consistent.

    When it happens to me, I get glitches in small batches, like one or two or three botched programs in a row. All screwed up to the point where they cannot fully download. Then it won't happen again for maybe 2-3 weeks. But I do copious amounts of downloads, so others results may vary.

    Program/movie duration doesn't seem to be of any importance. It happens to me with the little 1/2 hour types of shows with commercial breaks as well as with long movies and no commercial breaks.

    I suspect that it is an issue with the content delivery systems at the network providers not being able to keep up with the demand, perhaps a hard drive glitch every so often. I have seen a very similar thing happen at the movie theaters when they show a digital screening, where high bandwidth content is delivered from a local content delivery system, such as hard drives. For instance, I can remember Jack And The Giant Beanstalk hiccupping and seizing up so often at the theater that it was like watching a massive "ultra high def" Youtube video. People in the audience were softly groaning. It just is what it is.

    I haven't received my Fall update yet on my Premiere, but Tivo could have easily fixed that issue though if they wanted to.
