    Doubt a tablet can run a full blown Java app such as this. In any case there's not much point in trying since most/all the helper programs like tivodecode, ffmpeg, etc. won't run on the tablet anyway.

    Java and JavaScript are unrelated, aside from the misleading name.

    To confuse you further, Android is actually built on Java, sort of -- it runs Java code on a virtual machine that isn't the Java Virtual Machine, using a non-standard standard library. This is all on top of a Linux base -- for which you can build standard non-GUI Linux apps (like tivodecode and ffmpeg). I think the latter would actually be the easy part. Porting a standard Java GUI to Android, I dunno.

    Did you add a tab/table for which characters can be replaced by another character, and have it user configurable, ie: " (double quote) is replaced by '' (2 single quotes), foreign characters such as accented é (such as the é in Béyonce) be replaced by the regular E, etc., instead of just deleting those said characters.

    User configurable would allow all systems, from PC to MAC to Linux, to work.

    No. Some characters in file names cause problems when used with the various helper programs, so making it user-configurable aside from complexity in doing so just opens the door for users to get into trouble and not something I want to deal with.

    (
    Thanks for the heads up.
    Is there anything for the Ipad2 which would allow streaming from the tivo that you know of? One of the most compelling reasons I wanted a tablet was to be able to stream from Tivo. I guess I could go the more complex route of running kttmg on my Pc and then xfr the converted file to the Android. :(

    Herc,
    I think you have videoredo and if you do, switch to using that to decrypt the tivo file as it saves times and hardly ever errors out. I also had it hang often after decrypt-qsfix and still do have issues with adscan, either it not knowing correctly where it is at, or getting to say 99 percent and never finishing so I have to manually cancel the adscan by right clicking on the vrdo icon. In cases where that has happened, it almost always seems to have been finished scanning for ads, but somehow didn't close. The files are still usable.

    I now only really get hangs on downloading or adscan, not really qsfix anymore. It seems that sometimes, it is processor related, too much going on, but other times, it just happens so I can't really provide anything usable to know why it happens and it happens more often now than it used to, but I also am doing almost exclusively HD files now so they are bigger and take longer.

    Ok, now what about the files tab? Can you improve on it? Such as being able to search inside selected folders for the proper files, instead of adding files to the files list manually.

    v0p8o version just released with important fix for those using auto transfers:

    For auto transfers configuration the QS Fix task was greyed out even with ProjectX configured. This has been fixed in this release thus allowing ProjectX-based QS Fix to run in Auto Transfers mode.

    Any fix for the problem of VideoReDo not minimizing when doing background tasks? (anything other han review) Becoming very annoying when accidently pressing keys when it pops up and takes focus. Tried uninstalling everything and still no luck,

    Anyone else having hit or miss luck with download from pause activity? For me, it seems to be hit and miss. But it is very helpful when for some reason a download stalls and has to be aborted, to be able to pick up almost where it left off by renaming the first download (didn't finish) going to the approximate spot on the movie that it stopped, hitting pause and then downloading from there and then just manually editing the files together.....

    But, the actual resume download sometimes starts at the beginning and then I unselect it and two other recordings that were paused in the middle also get downloaded from the pause point when I wanted them from the beginning and deselected the check box.

    I think it might have to do with configuration settings not taking effect until restart. I also think a better way to do it would be to have an individual resume download button, instead of a setting in the main menu. That way, you for sure only identify one video that is downloaded from pause and also, it shows it on the screen that it is being downloaded from pause point. I had to download a few vids multiple times because of the configuration not changing.

    I hate to say maybe another check box, or even right click for resume downloads or download from pause, whatever it is called and for sure, a indication in the job list to let you know if it is downloading the full file or just the paused portion.

    Another suggestion is to be able to start one job in the queue probably via right click. I often have say 15 things in the queue, but want to set it so say only the downloads happen, but decide this after the jobs have run for awhile, because either I have time to edit so I want to not have processor power taken away with qsfix or something, or am running encode processes but still want the files to download. Being able to individually manage the queue items in the jobs list would be very helpful and beneficial, say right click to allow job to happen, even though other jobs are halted or whatever, or even reorder jobs list, or only allow downloads since they are not processor intensive but stop encodes and other processor heavy tasks when needed. I think several people would find that helpful. I myself select everything, but two hours later, might have time to edit, but want my downloads to continue one after the other, but cannot get the next download to start if everything is halted without having say a qsfix or encode task run on another file, which can take a long time to get my processor back to edit. reordering or individual activating and deactivating would really help.

    As long as you don't have "Allow multiple VideoRedo jobs at once" enabled the VRD jobs don't popup a VRD window. With that setting enabled the fact the windows don't automatically hide is a VRD related issue.

    For resume you have to make sure *after* setting pause point on the TiVo that you refresh the Now Playing List in kmttg before attempting a resume otherwise it won't work. kmttg relies on the byte offset in the NPL XML to determine resume point but if you don't refresh NPL it won't be correct. The setting is global because it really was not intended for frequent use. It's quite easy to turn on/off before clicking to initiate a download.

    Hi, I have a few shows that air & record weekly with the same name, description and (presumably) the same show ID, unfortunately.

    I would like these to be transferred as well, since their "date recorded" is unique, but I believe kmttg is using the history ID's and is skipping these and thus they don't continually get transferred.

    Q: Is there any way to override this behavior for a particular set of shows? (I have 4-5 of these).

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, you can have the date and time in the file names, look under KMTTG's configuration. Its the first tab, I believe.

    I have mine set for example: [title] - [year].[month].[day]-[hour].[minute]

    The wording isn't exact since I do not have the setting list at hand. On the PC, I can't use : (colon), so I use periods instead.

    Thanks, yes, but unfortunately because the IDs are identical to previous week's recordings, they are skipped by kmttg. (I use a single "*" wildcard for kmttg criteria).

    That's what the "Treat each recording as unique" is for. You probably should setup individual auto transfers for those programs though instead of your everything wildcard since you don't want to treat all recordings as such.

    moyekj: Did this change recently in their software? It wasnt ever a problem before, but I did the upgrade to kmttg and VRD at the same time, so wasnt sure which one caused it - is it something that can be adapted in the kmttg programming or something thats going to need to be (and probably never) fixed on the VRD end?

    Nothing changed in kmttg. It's the same scripts used under VRDScripts folder. Specifically for example in most of the scripts you'll see a section:
    Code:
    if (VrdAllowMultiple) then
       Set VideoReDo = wscript.CreateObject( "VideoReDo.Application" )
       VideoReDo.SetQuietMode(true)
    else
       Set VideoReDoSilent = wscript.CreateObject( "VideoReDo.VideoReDoSilent" )
       set VideoReDo = VideoReDoSilent.VRDInterface
    end if
    
    The SetQuietMode(true) I think used to minimize the VRD window but looks like it doesn't anymore with newer VRD releases. Like I said though you may not even need to have "Allow multiple VideoRedo jobs at once" enabled though and then it won't be an issue.

    just curious - why does it need to call differently if allowing multiple is set to true? why cant the call be the same either way? (and yes, i need to have multiple enabled)
