She could, if she so desired, use kmttg to fix the order once they are loaded on the Premiere.
Yes, good point.
How do I select more than one at a time?
Never mind. I forgot I turned off being able to select more than 1 at a time in that table once I added capability to re-order SPs. So yes you are right, you can only select and schedule 1 at a time. If you have a whole bunch of SPs to do it's probably easier to use tivo.com and then fix the order in kmttg.
I must say KMTTG has spoiled me. I used it to copy my SPs yesterday to my Elite.
I found I prefered the one at a time since less chance of missing one and also it allowed me to prioritize them in the process.
Anyone else seen the following behavior?
When I select all the available channels (excluding the music channels) and request a list of Season Premieres, the TiVo becomes sluggish and unresponsive.
He mentions it in the wiki or notes I believe. This process is very intensive so you should only select a few channels at once. I want to say he said 6-10.
Yes, that is mentioned in bold in the remote_control Wiki. The search is very exhaustive as it searches through 12 days worth of guide data for every channel you include in the search. So if you are going to do many channels it's best to do it in TiVo central screen and while there are no intentional recordings ongoing.
So what's the best way to copy my entire SP list to a new box? I guess if I have 150 SPs, I'll need to select each one and hit the copy button 150 times? Is there an older version of KMTTG that I can download that still allows multiples to be selected? Thanks!
Use tivo.com website:
The order will be all messed up when you do it there, but once they are on the Elite you can use kmttg to re-arrange.
Is there a way to re-arrange automatically to match the saved SP list or do they have to be manually dragged around?
There's no automatic re-order. Instead of drag and drop to move things around I find it easier to select an entry and then use keyboard up/down arrow buttons to move it up/down.
(I assume you are still talking about kmttg SP re-order here and not tivo.com web page right?)
Does kmttg ever time out? My TivoHD reboots a lot, so yes, I don't always get full programs downloaded. So if it reboots while I am transferring a program, I seem to have to force quit kmttg.. it just hangs when I try to cancel the transfer going on.
(Though I'm pretty sure I tried that the other day on a successfully-going transfer and it hung too.. But I know I can cancel Now Playing transfers, and that works fine.)
Oops, posted to the wrong thread.
For next release I'm going to change the table to allow multi-row selection for loaded entries.
I think for curl there is no default timeout. For java based downloads I have read timeout set to 120 seconds. Can't say I remember having a download I couldn't cancel before, but I haven't tried it following a rebooting TiVo. Perhaps try java downloads for a while to see if they behave any better for you.
Not wanting to be a nettering nancy or anything but is there anything you can do about the issue I talked about a few pages back with the java I guess you would call it bleed thru that requires minimization of the desktop in order to not have it come to the fore even though it is supposed to be in the background.
Another thing I have noticed, if you try and remote into your tivo using the wan ports, it works fine on your home networks but fails if you are entering from outside the lan. I tried going thru the secure 443 interface in a browser and found the same thing and an error message that said you can only do this from inside your lan (I use ddns so I can fake the address in kmttg from inside the lan, but the tivo still detects that I am in or out of the lan obviously) Is there any work around within kmttg that you could use to have this work truly out side the lan (other than vpn ing into the lan and doing it that way, is there any way kmttg could fake it so you could transfer to say somebody like myself who travels alot? The current method I use is to transfer the show to my home computer an then transfer it from there via htp or ssh or whatever, but direct from the tivo would save a lot of time and hassle. Maybe somebody already has a work around for this that I haven't seen too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've never heard of or experienced this issue, so not much I can do to resolve it. I do have 1 machine with Win XP on it but haven't seen it on that machine either. Perhaps make sure you are using a recent version of Java to try and solve it.
Not sure exactly what you are doing here, but I use kmttg outside my LAN all the time. You have to set the "wan http port" and "wan https port" settings in kmttg running on the WAN side and obviously you manually enter the TiVo IP as your router WAN IP. Then you have to have your router properly port forward the wan ports you specified to the proper LAN side TiVo IP and port 80 & 443. This enables full kmttg functionality outside the LAN.
(The "wan http port" and "wan https port" should be set differently for each TiVo you have, so you can do it for multiple TiVos if desired. Of course that means the router also has to be configured to properly port forward each one. I have 3 TiVos I can access on WAN side in this manner).
Well, I've been trying to reorder the SPs using kmttg, but I always get "rcp Read error - Read time out". Maybe I have too many SPs?
Is there an older version of kmttg that allows multiple selections at a time? If I can use an older version just to copy my season passes over in the right order, I should be set.
Since operation probably takes so long due to large number of SPs and read timeout is set to 120 seconds in kmttg, if it takes longer than that you will get the above message. My guess is the re-order still actually works once TiVo actually has time to process it.
Here is a zip file with a new/beta version of kmttg.jar. Rename your existing kmttg.jar to something else and put this one in its place.
To copy all SPs the flow is:
* Select originating TiVo and use *Save* button to save its Season Passes to a file.
* Switch to destination TiVo
* Use *Load* button to load previously saved Season Pass list
* Now select multiple entries in the table and use *Copy* button to copy them to the destination TiVo.
NOTE: I have not tried this with many SPs at a time as usually I test with 1 or 2 at a time at most.
