    That's because you have "Fast Transfers" enabled in TiVo Desktop which downloads in Transport Stream container. In kmttg you can enable that as well if you wish: Configure-Program Options-Download TiVo files in Transport Stream format
    However if you do that note that "tivodecode" cannot properly handle TS .TiVo files so you are restricting what you can do with those downloads unless you use VideoRedo with kmttg. (VideoRedo used DirectShowFilter to decrypt .TiVo files similar to how Windows Media Player uses for rendering).

    I was actually looking through the preferences when I saw a new message pop up. I just found the "fast transfer" option.

    So files that are d/l via TS are unable to be decrypted with kmttg?

    If using "tivodecode" then yes, but as I mentioned above if you configure kmttg to use VideoRedo instead then it can handle the decrypt.

    If you are connected to your network wirelessly, either on the computer side or the Tivo side of the router or both, you can experiment with the position of the antenna on the wireless adapter @ the computer to optimize transfers.

    On my network, my Tivo HD and PC are all on wireless and I get 6-8 mbs. I don't use Tivo Desktop (had Plus also) because it has stopped working and its a CPU hog. Also TD is quite limited. Currently I have switched over to PyTivo and KMTTG. PyTivo allows me to have multiple folders on the Tivo which I had set to various partitions/drives and can have multiple folders to explore from Tivo. TD only allows 1 folder (I think) and they have to be published into TD to be available to Tivo.

    Both are connected via wire. I had PyTivo running, but just recently reformatted my desktop that I had all the Tivo stuff installed on. I'm leaving on a trip next week and haven't had time to reconfigure everything, so I was trying to get something quick setup to transfer files and i'll setup everything when I get time. Yeah I much prefer PyTivo over TD.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Starting to see tons of shows that are only downloading the first 10 minutes or less. I know theres some other users bringing up the same issues, so just wanted to add myself to the list. At first I thought it was only 1 show that had the problem, but now its turned into 4 shows this week that only downloaded around 8 minutes, kmttg sees nothing wrong and continues its tasks.

    Hi all,

    Today I installed kmttg on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine. Was able to download a file just fine, and it was cooking away in the process.

    However, when it got to the "remux" stage it seems to have stalled out at 86%. After about 14 minutes I canceled the job and then ran it again on the .tivo file that was downloaded. Again, everything worked just fine till the remux stage, when it stalled at 86%.

    Anyone else experience anything like this? If so, were you able to resolve it?

    Thanks!

    Robert

    Double click on the remux job while it's running in the job monitor panel to see ffmpeg output to look for any messages that may provide clues. Since ffmpeg is used for remux perhaps an alternate version of ffmpeg than you are currently using may help.

    Here's what I get when I double-click on the job. It looks like it just stops. There's no error msg at all. Or should this step take quite a while? When I opened up the Task Manager I did notice there is activity. It's holding CPU usage at 24%. However, the VM-size and RSS columns are changing in size number.

    That's not a "remux" job. It looks like an "encode" job where you are trying to encode to H.264 but the ffmpeg your are using doesn't have "libx264" encode library. So the ffmpeg you are using either wasn't compiled with all codecs or is not compatible with the encoding profile you are using. You can find out what codecs are supported by executing following on command line:
    ffmpeg -codecs >codecs.txt
    Then look at codecs.txt and note that libx264 will be missing.
    So either you need a different ffmpeg install or you have to create an encoding profile which works with the version you have.

    Depends what you want. For kmttg the Plus version works if QS Fix is the only thing you are really looking for, and it can also be used for editing TiVo/mpeg2 files to cut out commercials yourself. TV Suite is useful if you want H.264 editing and encoding etc.

    Thanks for the heads up. You are correct, the libx264 is missing. The one I used was the one that came out of the Ubuntu 12.04 repos.

    FYI I received confirmation from someone involved in TiVo beta that the next software release for US Series 4 platforms indeed does indeed kill the remote control functionality because of this tightened authentication. So unless someone can crack the password for the "cdata.p12" file that entire functionality is gone from kmttg starting with next software update. It really pi**** me off as this was the most useful capability to come our way in a long time only to get yanked away. Don't really understand the motivation given the TiVo official applications are free anyway but IMO they are very limited in functionality.
    May be time to figure out how to block software updates...

    Certainly if they break some useful features of your program, we should ask them how long it will take them to incorporate those same capabilities into their (free) official applications. And you can offer, as an alternative, to continue to keep their users happy if they will just give you some sort of workaround.

    My only guess would be they are going to put in the ability to stream to said new apps and are worried that without auth, people could take shows not able to be transferred due to copy encryption or whatever. But why the heck block the remote functionality. That is plain stupid and whoever is working on the tivo beta should know that. Since jailbreaking is legal, i believe blocking updates would be legal too, as well as cracking other encryption. Some idiot at tivo is really not thinking forward, but is that a surprise? Just plain stupid.

    Hi,

    I know this is not really a kmttg thing, but wasn't sure where else to turn.
    The latest version of HB does not like something about the resulting (TiVoDecoded) MPEG, giving me a "No Title(s) Available" error. However when I use the CLI from 0.9.5, the file processes to MP4 without any issue whatsoever.

    I really wanted to use the new audio gain feature in HB as TiVo recordings typically suffer from low volume. Any suggestions around getting to work (again) with the latest version of Handbrake? The log (failure only) is below. Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    Adding the "project x" qs fix resolved the problem. Looks like the latest rev of handbrake is a bit more picky.
