    I have never been able to capture captions, even before this. I have ccextraxt.exe pointed to. What could be the issue here?

    What encoding profile are you testing with and is your source video from TiVo? Post here what mediainfo says for one of the videos to see if audio is really missing. You should also check the mpeg video before encode step to ensure it's OK.

    I never used ccextract as I never had any luck with it. I use T2Sami t2extract.exe. Try it from here (I think that's the right link):
    http://t2sami.com/t2samisite/
    Just tried one with ccextractorwin.exe and I get same error:
    Error: Failed to determine total file size.

    I have done some testing with the new Projectx for cutting commercials with comskip. So far it seems workable. Though I think it runs the qsfix last is that correct?

    If you have both "QS Fix" and "Ad Cut" tasks enabled then QS Fix is intentionally skipped because when ProjectX is used for Ad Cut task it will perform mpeg2 fixes as part of that step instead - waste of time to run through ProjectX demux twice.

    So I don't need the qsfix checked if I want to use Projectx?

    I am starting to believe it's something in my machine causing this...
    maybe some service...
    maybe another program...
    maybe the fact that the programs are in an external hard drive?...
    I dunno...

    OK, so I rolled back back to rev. K of KMTTG. I had a bunch of Christmas shows and movies that had been decrypted sitting in an external HDD. QS Fix HAD ALREADY BEEN RUN on these files immediately after decrypting. I did not think it needed to be re-run. Also ad-scan.

    So I open VPRj on each one of them to adjust the cut points. Total of six files. Then I queue them so I Can batch cut them. Then I do so. I wonder if the BATCH part of VRD is not a good solution and if I should use VAP instead. I just have not learned HOW to use VAP yet.

    Anyhow, I get a bunch of cut mpgs. Mediainfo testifies that they are all good. So I set KMTTG to re-encoding them to mp4 using ff_mpeg std profile while I slept. Maybe I needed to turn OFF Norton?

    Two of the files come out complete unreadable. Two others have serious glitch problems. On all 4 if I go to open with VRD it says it can fix issues with QS Fix after the fact. Two files seem ok.

    I have no idea what happened.

    So it's definitely me, and not the program.

    Sorry for the false alarm. I have no clue what I am doing wrong. Which is kind of strange, because prior to this I was able to not only decrypt and re-encode to mp4, but also create avi and mkv files w/o glitches. I am lost again.:mad::confused:

    If you also have "Ad Cut" checked then there is no need, but if you skip Ad Cut then you should have it enabled. i.e. No harm just leaving it enabled always if you are going to do any task beyond "decrypt".

    I just tried the CCExtractorGUI.exe file and it seemed to have messed up the video's sizing or something, I get the audio but no video on WMP and had to run VRD QSfix. (WMP reports as 640x480 and the original is 702x480.)

    T2Sami would take too long as you have to play through the entire video to get the CC.


    However, I have a .srt file and wonder what do I need to do to get it on the Tivo with its .mpg file?

    When I transfer HD programs to the iPad 2 the audio is slightly out of synch with the video. I used the ff_ipad encode profile. SD programs are fine.

    I have a Tivo HD and Windows 7 is where the downloads and encoding work.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you have "QS Fix" task as part of your flow?

    I tested that one and the artifacting was pretty bad and the results were unwatchable. I settled on the VRD "H.264 MP4" profile, but modified to limit resolution to 1280x720 and bit rate to 4000Kbps. Looks amazing on iPad, and my streaming servers scale it easily to iPhone and Kindle Fire.

    With pyTivo "pushes" you have some control over how shows group by editing metadata files and manipulating seriesId. See following Wiki page for an example:
    http://code.google.com/p/pytivo-auto-push/wiki/pyTivo_push_grouping
    For more details you are better off asking in pyTivo thread.
    (And remember it's only pushes that you have control over the grouping, not pulls.)

    I'd like to organize the kmttg files, kinda like the TiVo box itself does it, but for my kmttg processed recordings, to manage file storage on my disks.

    I'd like to:

    A) move recordings into folders by main title
    B) delete files older than say 6 months
    C) delete the oldest files in a series where more than N shows in the series already exist

    Anything already out there that might be able to tackle this that people are using?

    I did note there is in kmttg the ability to call an external command after each fe is processed...perhaps someone has aleady created a plugin app that can be called from there?

    Actually I was just looking for something similiar even if it is a batch file that watches a folder.
    Though I want mine based on folder size. Say I have a kids folder called Curious George. I don't want that folder to go larger than 20gb.

    A) Can be done in kmttg already. All my shows are encoded over to my nas and show up in folder by Title of show. My file naming is the following: [mainTitle][/][title] ([monthNum]_[mday]_[year])

    B) Can be done with say a batch file using forfiles. Other ways probably VB Script/powershell. So for an example - You could set the batch file up in your scheduled tasks.
    The following will show *.avi files that are older than 10 days in the "F:\test" folder.

    forfiles -p "F:\Test" /s /m *.avi /d -10

    The following would delete any *.avi folder older than 10 days.

    forfiles /p "F:\Test" /s /m *.avi /c "cmd /c Del @FILE" /d -10

    C) Probably can be done with a batch/vb/powershell script. Would be a bit more involved.

    I see that you now support downloading from pause point.

    I'm just curious how you found out how to do that. I remember asking for this soon after I found out about kmttg and it wasn't known how to do that at the time.

    (I will likely use this feature a lot -- one thing I download a lot of is talk shows, for the musical performances that are usually within the last 10 minutes... So manually going to near the end and pausing will save me a LOT of download time.)

    Courtesy of "opieant" in this thread. Still unknown to me if it works for series 2 TiVos. I confirmed it works for S3 & S4 series.
