Since you are using this with a Premiere unit note that TiVo Desktop currently pulls the shows in mpeg2 Program Stream (PS) format only while for kmttg v0p7j it pulls them in mpeg2 Transport Stream (TS) format by default. So most likely if you change kmttg setting to pull in PS format instead the same pulls that worked with TiVo Desktop should also work with kmttg. Sounds like perhaps there are still some bugs with pulling in TS format? To use PS format in kmttg: File->Configure... Program Options tab Disable "Download TiVo files in Transport Stream format" OK Let us know if that indeed is the problem as that would be an interesting tidbit and possibly another bug with Premiere units.
