    Does anyone know what this error means:

    ?

    I am unable to extract CC (Closed Captions) fro the life of me, and I don't know what I am doing wrong...:confused:

    I think you have it. Use kmttg to archive new shows and your set top box or blue ray to watch them streaming later from your has. You can also stream them back to your tivo but if you scroll back a few days in this thread, there are some thoughts on that. I personally archive and watch on stb and when I travel, copy several shows to a portable hard drive to watch them on same travel stb in hotels and such.

    Hi there,

    I am wondering if I made an error in the installation of the new version.

    I am getting files WITHOUT sound of any kind (see my post above with error #6 in case it has something to do with it).

    Should I go back a version?

    How did you determine there is no sound? mediainfo is a good program to examine the contents of video files and report what is inside. Install that and run it on your video and look for audio information that most likely is present. My guess is more likely you have missing codecs when playing back recording on your PC or something along those lines. If you install VideoLAN VLC and it can play back the video properly with sound that's another way to confirm the video is fine.

    I have all CODECS installed,

    BUT I always run a single file test of any batch on a TiVo. The first batch I run produced six programs. None of them had sound.

    I am not accusing KMTTG, I am saying I installed it wrong somehow when I unpacked it, I am just trying to figure out HOW.


    ---> Also, moyekj, I didn't only replace the kmttg.jar file, I replaced the directories that "unzipped" along with it.

    It's not clear what you are doing and which type of file seems to be missing audio. Is it the .TiVo file, .mpg file, something else? There's nothing in kmttg that can be screwed up in such a way that you get video but no sound which is why I'm saying you should use mediainfo and/or VLC to check the videos to see if audio is really present or not. If you are using Windows Media or similar for playback it's easy to get screwed up or missing codecs. You have to first clarify and determine what the real problem is before trying to solve the problem.

    All the source files from TIVO have sound according to MediaInfo. The decrypted files ALSO have sound. It's the end files that don't have any sound. This time, for the first time, I let KMTTG do the whole process (from decrypt to encode to mp4). Previously, I stopped in the middle to check the commercial brakes. This is why I am confused.

    I used this profile: hb_tivo_std,
    but really that interchangeable for me with ff_tivo_std.

    So I dunno.

    All output files (mp4s) have been deleted at this point and I have started over. But I can reclaim them from the recycle bin to recheck them again. And no, where I was looking at them, before MediaInfo, was on the TiVo itself through a "pull"... but I could already tell something was wrong because the files were so small.

    --------------------------------------

    All mp4s in question were checked. None had sound. I put them back in the recycle bin. I dunno what I did wrong. Maybe I have the wrong version of Handbrake installed.

    OK that explains it. Those encoding profiles generate mp4 container with AC3 audio that cannot be handled by many players as that is a relatively new spec. Those profiles are intended to generate TiVo compatible mp4 files (which can handle mp4 with AC3 audio). VLC can handle playback of such files on your computer and if you check with mediainfo you will see they do actually have AC3 sound. Media Player or similar cannot handle playback of such files.

    I put in a new motherboard in today so I had to install my programs again. I tried to install KMTTG to my c drive. When I opened the jar it read that I had to install some files. I clicked yes but instead of in c/KMTTG in put them on my desk top.
    Has any one had this problem

    That probably means you have kmttg.jar installed on your desktop since the tool installation is done relative to that. I would make sure you unzip the installation zip under c:\kmttg and then setup a desktop shortcut to kmttg.jar at that location.

    I found what I was doing wrong. Right after I unzipped KMTTG I just dragged the Jar short cut icon to the desk top. I then opened it up from there and windows was putting on the desk with the jar short cut.
    sorry for bother you thank. Have a good Thanks giving

    I am having the same SOUND problem with all other encoding profiles.

    At this point, I don't know what I am doing wrong, so I am going to roll back a version, eliminate PROJECT X from the equation and try again. I will let you know if it's me, as in if it's my machine after the roll-back.

    I know I only have a Windows XP machine with a two-threaded CPU, but still, I am allowing KMTTG to run by itslelf.

    OH, BTW, Happy Thankgiving! :up::)

    I was just trying to get some shows ready for the kids! You all enjoy the day!

    With ProjectX it will eliminate captions so that would explain missing captions. The audio problem is issue with whatever media player you are using. As I said if you use VLC player instead it should work fine.

    Oh, I have VLC. It still doesn't work. No sound file or signature present. Period.

    One other thought. VideoRedo forced me to update through the internet a few days ago. Could that have caused my problem?

    You may not have the proper codec when you watch the videos on the PC, the audio is AC3.

    I know I do....I've encoded with it. I am sort of a codecs wiz from long ago, always have been, just didn't know all their intricacies... I just knew I needed them all (and all the different players). I even have Classic Media Player and Real Player.

    But still, all you all are telling me that up to now, I was able to decrypt and encode FINE (aka w/o problems) but now, all of a sudden, I can't? That makes no sense to me.

    Either the update to VideoRedo did it.
    Or my installation of ProjectX (I didn't do it right).
    OR the latest version of KMTTG.
    :confused:
    Pick one.

    I am rolling all back to see where I am.

    I have an XP Codec Pack.
    I have an XVID Codec Pack.
    I have a Matroska Codec Pack.
    I have AC3 Filter Installed.

    From running Codec Detective in XP Codec Pack I get this:
    Codec Name: AC3 <Installed>
    Driver: C:\DWINDOWS\System32\ac3filter.acm

    Is that out of line?

    If yes, please explain why?

    You might need FFDSHOW.

    ffdshow is installed.

    AC3 is shown running OFF liba52. Is that incorrect? Should I change it?
