    I downloaded a video from archive.org "Abbot & Costello and the Jack and the Beanstalk.mp4" (h.264)

    When I pushed it to Tivo via KMTTG, it returned an error "Internal Server Error".

    Should I have downloaded the other versions? .ogv (ogg Video)? .avi (Cinepack)?

    I have used kmttg on and off for years, but am only semi-tech savvy. So please be patient with me.

    What is the best preset profile for iPad conversions? I just inherited an iPad and am going in a trip soon so I started converting some movies using the iPad/iPhone 4GS VRD profile. It seems to be generating much larger files than I'm used to (2GB for a movie, old iPhone files where about 800MB) and is taking forever - about 3-4 x real time per file. And this is converting SD movies.

    Will this resolution look that much better? I have a few old IPhone conversions and they look decent on the iPad, very watchable.

    The last time I used kmttg for iPhone conversions my firewall software was giving me fits and I couldn't accesses the VRD profiles, so I used ff iPhone. The results were almost unwatchable, so I'm leery of ff.

    I'd appreciate any tips. Thanks.

    Disk space is fine. Rebooted Tivo. I now get the 'server busy' message. I even tried going to another computer, same issue. Wondering if something is borked with my Tivo box?

    This is really disappointing. I may end up switching Media Center to my primary DVR and my Elite as a backup until this happens or TiVo releases the SDK. This is assuming they actually give anyone other than a major company access.

    I can't see myself going back to trying to juggle season passes on the TiVos without KMTTG. Without KMTTG's RPC functionality, Media Center becomes the easier to manage when you have as many season passes as I do.

    Yes it's a huge downer. I don't use kmttg for its original intent of downloading/encoding anymore. The RPC functionality revived my interest in the project however and I use it daily for managing TiVos at home and away from home. I don't care what is in next release it's going to be a huge step down in functionality for me and is killing any interest on further development with kmttg and TiVo in general. I doubt the so-called new SDK will be made available to non-commercial developers any time soon (I did sign up for it FWIW). Only hope is if someone can crack the "cdata.p12" password file that is part of the current iOS releases. I gave that a try already a few weeks back but it looks like password is a strong password which cannot be broken in any reasonable amount of time using brute force techniques. Really down on TiVo right now. :(

    pkcs12 cracking program can be found here (supports brute force and dictionary attacks):
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/crackpkcs12/?source=directory
    cdata.p12 file I attach with this post in cdata.zip file.
    I tried dictionary attacks already without success and on an 8-thread CPU tried brute force but it only got up to 7 characters after a few days of work so would probably take a very long time to crack a long and strong password.

    Does anyone know how to include the year a movie was made in the file title created by kmttg. I have four movies all named Bad Company. I would like to have kmttg put the year made in the title so I can differentiate between them. I see how to include the year I recorded it on the Tivo but not when the film was first released.

    which encode is best for HD TV shows for the new iPad?

    I adjusted the ff_ipad to

    FFMPEG -y -i INPUT -threads CPU_CORES -vcodec libx264 -level 31 -subq 6 -me_range 16 -qmin 10 -qmax 50 -g 300 -s 1920xHEIGHT -r 29.97 -b 4000k -maxrate 8000k -acodec aac -ac 2 -ab 320k -ar 48000 -f mp4 OUTPUT

    does that accomplish anything or is it a waste of time?

    I think I saw mention somewhere that "level" should be 41 (which is really 4.1) so if it doesn't work as you have it you can try that. You can probably bump up bit rate a little I would guess but I don't know the official specs.

    The changes I made work, but wasn't sure if they're worth the increased file size. Stupid question: when you say bit rate, do you mean

    -b 4000k -maxrate 8000k

    bump those up further?

    The original were

    -b 2500k -maxrate 4000k

    Just for clarity's sake, there is no current indication that changes in Tivo software are going to wreck the downloading component of kmttg (or pyTivo, etc.), right? I am annoyed that they would shut off this avenue, but I don't actually use the other functionality yet.

    No. TiVo Desktop still needs to work the same way so that's safe.

    I'm not so sure... and I was about to elaborate, but then I thought, why give TiVo ideas? :S

    How ominous. Mum's the word! And if they hire you, I'm shorting Tivo. ;)

    It seems tivo info is having more episode numbers now than in the past, at least on my unit. Is there any way that for kmttg to be able to use the episode numbers in naming or show them in the Now Playing grid for the tivo?

    For my tivo that runs tivowebplus, thru the web interface, it has episode numbers for most the shows, not sure how that is accomplished, but would be very helpful if kmttg could do the same or show that data easier than currently.

    Now you're scaring me...

    I was about to buy a Series 4 unit, so I haven't used that RPC functionality yet.

    I use kmttg and pyTiVo so much, I would be so disappointed to see them destroyed.

    Maybe no more TiVo for me. Time to look at other options....sadly.

    Time to stock up on S2 and S3 units. Tivo wouldn't dare upgrade the SW in them. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't overreact. I think TiVo changing the core TTG/HMO functionality/authentication at this point for series 4 platforms would be highly unlikely (though not impossible).
