    Yeah, I prematurely posted. I hate when that happens. I had a .ps stream d/l running and posted before it completed. I was unaware that tivodecode wouldn't work in .ts files. Thanks.

    Issue with transfer of show. I am trying to transfer Private Practice and it is a 5.8gb file and everytime I try to move it the show only shows up as 2.5gb and 23 minutes of the show. Anything else I can try? This is on a TivoHD.

    E:\converted files\KMTTG\TivoOut\Private Practice\09_ 29_2011 God Laughs.TiVo: size=2175.46 MB elapsed=0:35:04 (8.67 Mbps)
    ---DONE--- job=download output=E:\converted files\KMTTG\TivoOut\Private Practice\09_ 29_2011 God Laughs.TiVo

    Though kmttg says Dur =:58, Size = 5.8GB, Mbpx =14.32

    Its possible a glitch in the video is stopping the transfer, if its always stopping at the same point. Play the file on the PC and note when it stops, compare on the tivo.

    It seems to be the same spot - never had this happen before so that is why I asked the question.

    I will have to compare when I have a chance.

    Checked and it looks like there is an issue at that point with the file - thanks for the info.

    Couple things, some of which people may know or not but posting them for comment.

    1. It took me awhile to figure this out but sometimes when you just cannot get a show to download or have problems downloading it, I have found that it can be because you are watching that show on the TiVo (as the active show or whatever) this has happened several times to me, I would be downloadingba group of shows and one would keep getting an error either thru the web interface or kMttg. I would go around in circles and keep getting errors. I then finally figured out that sometimes it just will not transfer if you ha e that show on pause or watching it in the middle or whatever. Ffwd to the end or start watching a different show and all of a sudden the show will then transfer.

    2. Something strange about kmttg, it doesn't quit act properly which minimized or sent to the background. On my xp machine, if I click on something else which puts kmttg to the background, after a few seconds it comes back up to the foreground and really screws up the display. This happens all the time, and I don't really know of any other program that has such an issue. For example, I have an automated show database that I upload to a web server and then access via a firefox webpage. I often check a new recording in kmttg to see if it is in the database by opening the webpage while kmttg is in the foreground, then switching to firefox and viewing the page, or entering the name and having it lookup. After a few seconds, kmttg will essentially overwrite the screen so even though firefox is active, it is obscured by kmttg. The only solution is to hit the minimize all button on the desktop and then make firefox again active so I can read the page. Not knowing anything about java, I am guessing their is something set incorrectly on background or minimize or whatever. It happens consistently, with almost any program, file browser, or whatever, kmttg will over obscure it and is very annoying. And doesn't happen with other java programs I use afaik. Hopefully, you can understand what I mean and work to correct, if I need to provide more detail, let me know.

    3. I have been using clone.ad free converter software avi.net, index.net and now video.net to process my videos over handbrake. It works much easier, allows xvid, matroska and/or mp4 and is much more user friendly than hand break and takes less time. I am thinking of writing a guide for those that might be interested. I use it for my DVDs and replay shows also, just as I use kmttg to process them too. Does anyone else use these tools? I have some format questions I would like to post here if so, or start another thread, because, xvid can shrink a 8gb file down to say 1gb with no perceptible quality loss, or very minor.

    I have noted something similar recently when trying to pull a show from my TivoHD to my Premiere. I was watching the show on the TivoHD and left it paused on the program. The transfer would start (blue light) on the Premiere but immediately stop. I tried 3 times. Same result every time. Once I exited out of the program on the TivoHD, I was able to transfer the program. Also, before I exited out, I was only given the options to transfer the program while after exiting out, I was given the usual options to transfer from paused point or from beginning. I don't remember this being a problem in the past (transferring a program while being played/paused on another tivo).

    Has anyone tried starting a transfer and then going to the tivo that the video is transferring from and start watching it? Does it kill the transfer or not allow playback?

    This TiVo transfer problem has been a hit or miss issue as long as I have been using kmttg, which is now over a year. But it doesn't happen every time and I only recently got a premiere so the times in had the problem were from TiVo hd to PC. And not every time, so I don't know exactly why it happens, but when it does, neither transfer method will work. I have several non hd shows that I transfer so maybe it is only hd shows or something like that. Also my ticks are not hacked although I will probably do the hd one soon as I am sick of cable card randomness on cox cable.

    Weird, I don't think I've ever run into that being a problem -- watching & transferring the same program. (Though my TivoHD is semi-dying and it's crashing a lot regardless -- and yes, even with a new hard drive.)

    A few years ago, I ran into this issue with paused programs, but going from TiVoHD to TiVoHD. No Premiere involved at all.

    I mentioned it here and others couldn't reproduce it.

    My conclusion was that it's simply flaky. Most of the time it works, even if left paused. But very occasionally it doesn't.

    It happens to me, but only on freshly recorded shows. As in, I'm watching the show as its recording and I pause it. If I don't break out of that I cannot transfer the show to another TiVo once it's done recording.

    v0p8i version just released. This release focused exclusively on more iPad protocol remote enhancements and fixes. Highlights: The remote is now integrated as another tab in main kmttg window instead of a separate window, making it much easier and more convenient to use. This release also adds 2 new tabs to the remote: Search & Guide tabs which provide simple interfaces for finding shows to record.

    See release_notes Wiki for full details and consult the remote_control Wiki for information on how to use the various remote tabs.

    Thanks to "innocentfreak" for some help testing these enhancements.

    This may be a stupid question, but I can't seem to find the answer through searching. Is it possible to select multiple Season Passes to copy to another TiVo? I've tried holding shift and ctrl while selecting SPs from the list, but they don't seem to do anything.

    Yes, that should work. Note that to copy SPs to another TiVo it's a multi-step process:
    1. Save SPs of the source TiVo to disk
    2. Switch to destination TiVo (that you want to copy to)
    3. Load the SPs you saved in step 1
    4. Now you can copy the loaded SPs to your destination TiVo

    That's what I tried, but I can't figure out how to select all of the SPs from the loaded list. Does it copy all of them to the destination box if I don't select any?

    No, you have to select all the ones you want to copy and it will schedule them 1 at a time. Note that using iPad protocol it requires there to be guide listings for a show in order to make a SP for it, so any shows that don't currently have guide listings will fail.

    So do I have to select one at a time and hit copy separately for each one?

    No, you should be able to select all the ones you want and then click on Copy.

    Any way to transfer season passes from TiVo HD to Premier elite?

    TiVo HD doesn't support the iPad protocol, so not through that method. You can give tivo.com website a try though. It should copy all SPs though the order will likely get all messed up and you'll have to fix that manually.
