    I just finally got around to downloading the latest version of kmttg and it's running well, but I have one very odd question that I can't figure out.

    I've been moving things between Tivos as I troubleshoot some stability issues and have wound up with multiple copies in multiple places, is there a way to get kmttg to generate a simple XLS or CSV list of all the items in the NPL?

    Not really. Closest thing I can think of is you can select all items in the NPL table and do a Ctrl-C to copy to clipboard then Ctrl-V to paste in XL or some other editor. For that to work better:
    1. Turn off "Show Folders"
    2. Drag the 1st column with the graphic icons to make it last column in table. You do that by holding down the left mouse button on the title of the column, then dragging it over. (In clipboard this gets represented as a long string so putting it as last column makes it easier to ignore)

    I don't feel nearly as dumb, copying and pasting will do, and since it's text based I'm ok with that. I was just sure I was missing something, so thanks!

    I love this app. I am using the handbrake encoding for appletv. Is there a way to enable my graphics card to be used for the encoding to speed things up at all? Thanks for all your hard work.

    Yes, look at tooltip for "Ad Cut" since it says as much - If VRD is enabled it is used for making the cuts regardless of which method you use for "Ad Detect" task, and yes by default it is in batch mode, but kmttg can be configured to let you review the cuts before proceeding as commercial detection is rarely perfect.

    If there is that would have to be supported by Handbrake. If there are command line options available to make that happen you can make your own custom encoding profile with the option(s) added. Multi-threading obviously helps as well if you can take advantage of it.

    I'd like an option not to remove the previous file after a QS Fix. Maybe name the new file as .mpeg rather than .mpg or pust "-QSFIX" at the end of the file name and still use the .mpg extension.If I can get this pretty close to what a torrented show looks like from HD media I'll be pretty happy.But I have a question that When automating things via VRD, does kmttg remove the VRD project files that it creates or does it leave them? I could envision people wanting it both ways. That could be a program option.

    Look under configuration->File Settings. There's already a qsfix option there to backup the original mpeg file instead of replacing it:
    "For QS Fix of .mpg file backup original .mpg"

    There's also option to remove "Ad Detect" related files or not there as well after the cut task.

    FYI, now that fall TV is here it was a good opportunity to see how the kmttg "Season Premieres" finding fares. I've been running it and checking vs TV Guide Fall Schedule Calendar and was pleasantly surprised to see very good correlation between the two. I had expected many more omissions than there actually are due to missing episode information in TiVo guide listings. I previously relied on ReplayTV which had built in capability to find Season & Series premieres for this task, but since ReplayTV listings were officially terminated some months ago I needed an alternate semi-automated solution and this seems to fill that gap pretty nicely so far. In fact it's much easier to actually schedule new SPs using this method since I don't have to go looking for them one by one on the TiVos after I identified which ones I wanted with the ReplayTV method. Plus I don't have to use my TiVos themselves at all to do it. First I schedule them, then I re-prioritize SP order as desired.

    Ok another random idea lol.

    Would it be possible for a way to create a option to suspend season passes?

    I am thinking where you can delete a season pass but KMTTG keeps it, and then you can run occasionally where it would then search the guide for the show. Think of it like a modified version of your premiere option.

    I was just thinking this would be nice when you know a show is the season finale you could park the season pass. Then you could run a search occasionally to look for it or just manually readd it.

    See post 3228 for my experiences regarding graphic card acceleration. I want to add that sometimes Badaboom2 produces mp4 files that are unwatchable because the audio is out of sync. I cannot tell yet what channels or programs cause it because the frequency that it happens is so low.

    I was watching a thread on Badaboom's website where another user was having the same issue. That thread just disappeared...without any answers. So far though Handbrake has been a resource hog, but has produced flawless mp4 files.

    How do I make Closed Captions in my recordings to be included for burning onto DVD?

    Under Kmttg, the captions option is greyed out.

    Read Wiki about Captions (you need t2sami under windows):
    http://code.google.com/p/kmttg/wiki/using_kmttg
    But that option is only to create .srt captions file which can be useful for streaming to streambaby. Not sure if any DVD writing software can use it. Note that video file downloaded from TiVo contains embedded captions, so I assume some DVD writing software would be able to use it - or you have to use 3rd party tools to hard code captions into the video.

    Okay, I think I am missing something or maybe this is a feature that needs to be implemented. On the premiere, is there any way that you can put in a check switch like for all the other great things we can do for deleting the show? I know that you can do it as part of the settings, but when I use kmttg, I tend to break things down into processes and I cannot find a way to just pick a show in the NPL and delete it. I need to do it that way because of the post processing I do, I have to check my files and if they are okay, then I would like to be able to delete it off the premiere. I have had problems in the past if things were automated say a broken qsfix or something and if I automatically have the file deleted, I face program loss for the say 5% of the time that happens. Of course it always happens on the most important show that I want to watch of whatever.

    If this functionality already exists, great, I just need to know how to do it. On the ipad app, you can pick the show and delete so I imagine the same thing is possible, and I cannot use the remote to do this because my computer is not in the same room.

    Any suggestions greatly suggested if this already exists, if not, hopefully you can put it in soon.

    Thanks for a great program.

    Simply select the items in NPL you want to delete and use the keyboard "delete" key.
    (You can also use keyboard "delete" key to remove Season Passes from Season Pass table.)

    It's documented in the Wiki pages and also the tooltip that comes up on the iPad setting under configuration->TiVos.
    My ReplayTVs are all unplugged now. I had one left for Season & Series premieres finding (as I mentioned just a few posts ago in this thread), but since the official guide listings were turned off I unplugged it and luckily the timing was good for the iPad protocol to serve as a viable replacement for that function.

    gotcha, well i looked for it in the forums here and other places and didnt hit the right place/phrase till you told me. i use kmttg to process my replay shows too, and avi.net to convert them along with tivi shows to a more compact form. some day i need to do a good writeup for those that have both and/ or just dont want to figure out what i have had to. i still findthe replays completely useful especially since i have cable card blocking on a bunch of my channels. i like the replay better without dnna. less hassle.

    Another thought comes to mind. Is there any way to get a similar delete function to work on series 3? I think you can delete with tivo web plus on series three, but when I tried the same in kmttg, it didnt work. I am guessing maybe not possible or is there a setting I am missing?
