Are other tabs working with the new TiVo such as Info, Guide, Search, Remote?
No-When I hit those tabs I get the same message.
Well, check again that you have the network remote setting enabled for the new TiVo. Are you able to get Now Playing List from it and download shows from it at least? (That verifies the IP for it in kmttg is set correctly and can be reached).
Verified network remote settings are enabled on the Tivo. Not connecting at all. I am absolutely perplexed, as the tivo seems to be working fine. Any help is so very appreciated. Joel.
Did you go to Tivo.com and login to your account, Under DVR Preferences, check the boxes for TRANSFERS and DOWNLOADS for each Tivo box? It may take up to a day to get enabled and get a Media Access Key.
My guess is then kmttg has wrong IP for it or you have a network issue. Do you have a static IP set for the new TiVo or have the router locked to assign same IP for it even if you are using DHCP?
Open a "cmd" window in Windows and see if you can ping the IP # that kmttg is using:
i.e. ping 192.168.xxx.xxx
If you can't ping the unit then either you have wrong IP or network problem.
Only have one tivo box, but yes verified that those boxes on the tivo site were indeed checked.
four pings to the ip successfully completed, no data loss.
Until you can actually get Now Playing List and download shows from the TiVo I wouldn't expect the iPad protocol to work either. I assume you've tried rebooting the TiVo as well just in case? If the TiVo is brand new it sometimes takes over 48 hours for TTG, MRV etc. to become functional after you've enabled it via tivo.com website.
Yes, and interestingly, I downloaded/installed tivo server and it immediately saw the test recording I made on the new box, and made available for transfer....Some questions, just looking for anything.
1. Are there kmttg settings I should pay particular attention to?
2. Could it be a problem to kmttg that the (now removed) old tivo and the new installed tivo have the same mak?
3. Would the functionality as described above of tivo server indicate a response to the "48 hour" issue you note above?
Many, many thanks. I am really eager to get kmttg going so that my wife does not miss her shows. Joel
The MAK is for your account, not TiVo specific. i.e. It has to be same for all TiVos.
Check kmttg Configuration->Tivos. Check the IP is correct. In fact you should click on "DEL" button to remove entry that is there and let kmttg re-discover your TiVo again. It must have the wrong IP right now. I'm guessing if you gave your new TiVo same name as the old one that kmttg still has the old IP there.
Ok-deleted as requested, and on discovery the new tivo and the test recoding showed up! However, on any other action/tabs same timeout message is received. Also, did not name the tivos.
OK, now that you have proper IP try re-starting kmttg to see if the remote starts working.
Also, make sure that "Enable iPad style communications with this TiVo" is enabled in kmttg for the TiVo or you won't get "Remote" tab at all.
A note-the new ip was the same as previous. Closed kmttg, then reopened, hit remote tab, then any sub tab, same timeout message. Any settings I should double check??
Grasping at straws: could this have to do with the jmfs 2 tb expansion? Or the aac which was not enabled on the wd ears (already quiet drive)? Otherwise tivo appears to be functioning flawlessly.
Choose the "Remote" tab and click on "Toggle CC" entry. That uses "telnet" protocol instead of "iPad" protocol to communicate with TiVo. I'm curious if that works. Short of rebooting the TiVo and trying again I don't know what else to try. Seems like somehow the iPad protocol is not available on your machine.
I just installed version v0p8j, as I was excited about being able to maniupate season passes.
However, none of the tabs are showing up (ToDo, Season Passes, Won't Record, Search, Guide, Remote, Tab). I got this from your screen shot.
Essentially, my new version does not have this.
Is there something I did wrong?
Is there no "Remote" tab on the main page?
When I toggled cc on the remote tab, the close captions on the tv came on.
Also installed km..on another box, same issue.
Please read the remote_control Wiki page 3rd note. Under configuration->Tivos you have to enable iPad option for at least 1 TiVo in order to get the "Remote" tab in the main window.
Doesn't sound like kmttg issue then as you have proper IP and both http and telnet protocols are working. Sounds like your box is not enabled for the iPad protocol for some reason.
