    No executable. The kmttg.jar is the executable file with a proper 32 bit Java installation. The windows_installation Wiki walks you through installation.

    I think VRD TVS v4 supports .ts while earlier versions does not.

    Great program that has worked for me a while now, but I just started to get a problem. Transferring from my S3, several programs don't seem to completely download and the program goes on to the next item in the list. Is there a download file size limit in KMTTG using Windows (XP)? I've only now started to download large (> 4GB) HD files. I'm using the latest j ver of KMTTG. Thanks.

    The older FAT32 file system has just such a limit. You'll need to switch your filesystem to NTFS if you want to download larger files.

    Thanks bkdtv, that must be it. I had it downloading to an old external drive that was still FAT32. I've switched to another external that's NTFS, so I'll verify it works again.

    Thanks, bk. I didn't even know there was a 599 (last I saw was 597, and there was nothing in the change-log that applied to me). I'll go grab 599 and see what happens. It would be nice if it turned out to be that easy.

    Thanks for the response! I missed it on my first pass through.

    No, I don't have TD 2.8 installed. Just the older TD 2.6. Since kmttg was serving my purposes in a vastly superior manner (without glomming on to gigabytes of VM), I never bothered upgrading the TiVoDesktop.

    Should I have?

    Ah, no 599 that I can see. 597 appears to be the latest. ??? Even the V4 suite (which I downloaded, but never installed) is only up to 595.

    Only if you want VideoReDo to understand transport stream .TiVo files. TD 2.6 knows nothing about them; hence, neither does VideoReDo on your system.

    Took my a while to get back...sorry. Just close up this question, UNC paths (\\server\sharename) works perfectly. Time to donate!

    Does moyekj have a link somewhere to submit a donation for the fine work he has done? Thought I saw one on the google code site, but I guess not.

    Actually, this should not be a surprise. Drive mappings are part of your login session. If you were to log in as a different user, you would have a totally different set of drive mappings, possibly none at all. Since pytivo is running as a service - akin to a unix daemon - it is most certainly NOT running as you and so therefore does not have access to your drive mappings. UNC syntax is the only other possible syntax you could use.

    Seems I'm having a problem with kmttg's qsfix step. I haven't had any processing beyond that step for a couple of days now. I can see VIDEOR~1.EXE in Windows Task Manager sitting at 0% cpu utilization. It just seems to be stuck!

    Here's a partial listing of my auto.ini:

    Code:

    All <title>s follow the same format, with the exception of an occasional comskipIni override. The last successful "soup to nuts" processing took place on 4/4/2010. Any ideas on what would cause this? :confused: I've bounced the kmttg service in an attempt to get things flowing again, without success.

    kmttg version: v0p7j
    VideoReDo version: 3.20.1.597 (installed 3/27/2010)

    I'm using kmttg to pull videos from the TiVo, decrypt them into .mpg format, and create corresponding metadata files. I've found that if I play the .mpg back using WMP 11, for some of the videos WMP will crash, saying it got an unexpected termination command. I copied the files to another PC and got the same result. Through trial and error I found that the presence of the metadata file was the cause of the WMP crash - if I remove/rename the metadata file then the video plays without a problem. I compared metadata files between "good" and "bad" videos and can't see a difference. If I copy the contents of a bad metadata file into that of a good one, then it'll cause the "good" video to crash. I edited a "bad" file to see if I could determine the problem, but couldn't turn up anything definite (e.g.,no apparent embedded special characters) other than if I delete enough of the file entries (and it doesn't seem to care which ones) I can get the metadata file to not crash WMP. It's not file length related since I have good metadata files with considerably larger number of characters. I can also "fix" the file by converting the field separators (which appear as squares in Notepad) into paragraph marks (i.e., in Notepad I delete the square and hit "Enter"). Any thoughts on what WMP is finding objectionable in the metadata files?

    It's a total surprise to me that WiMP is doing anything with the files -- they aren't intended for it. If the metadata files are showing up in notepad with boxes (LFs) as the line delimiters, and if changing those to CRLFs fixes them, then perhaps kmttg should write them out as native text files. (This is what pyTivo does now in its ToGo plugin, and when reading them it opens them in Universal mode, so the line endings don't matter.) Meanwhile, I'd like to find out more about what WiMP is doing...

    Version 599 available here:
    http://www.videoredo.net/beta/VRDTVSH264-4-20-4-599.exe
    (Just be sure you use latest kmttg v0p7j if using 598 or later).

    auto.log has more relevant information as to what may be going wrong. A few things to try:
    1. Make sure qsfix task can run in GUI mode.
    2. Check that kmttg service is running with your user account (same account that works when running in GUI mode).
    3. Toggle "Allow multiple VideoRedo jobs at once" setting and try again in auto mode.

    Actually, VLC complains about the metadata files too - although it does not crash - just a simple warning. What's more, VLC seems to have some lattitude about the name of the metadata file - it does not have to be an exact match.

    Confirmed. Not sure what WMP is trying to do with the txt file either, but it appears very picky in wanting \r character at end of line (i.e. Notepad compatible format) in order to prevent a crash.
    I suppose I can change metadata file creation to use \r character so that WMP is happy with it.

    WMP is trying to open the .txt file looking for CC info. It accepts either .srt or .txt files.
