    Thanks so much for posting these instructions and the files. I don't have it figured out quite yet (I'm stuck on figuring out how to install fuzzywuzzy - not knowing Python at all is certainly hampering my progress), but I haven't given up and I'm encouraged that you've figured it out; at least I know that what I've been striving for is possible.

    1. Make sure you don't have TiVo Desktop or some other program trying to download from your Premiere while kmttg is running. TiVo web server only likes to serve up 1 file at a time and gets in a bad state if that is violated which only a reboot fixes.
    2. That encoding profile you are using keeps AC3 audio in mp4 container which few players can handle. Try VLC VideoLan player for that.
    3. You are probably not updating it by clicking on UPDATE button after changing settings. In auto transfers window click on auto transfer in the top table, then adjust Encoding Name, then click on UPDATE button and then OK the window to save changes.

    1. Can streaming between two tivo's be the process trying to download that would hose up downloads for kmttg until I reboot?
    2. I have switched to AppleTV with handbrake and will see how that goes.
    3. I should have figured that one out. Thanks.

    Don't think so, but I haven't tried so maybe.

    I haven't done this on my Premiere, but the few times I tried it on my TivoHDs, the Tivo didn't seem to like both downloading shows to my computer and transferring Tivo to Tivo. From what I remember, the transfer speeds would drop to a crawl or something like that. I haven't done both simultaneously since then so I am not sure if it has been addressed at all.

    It was not a problem of the download creeping - it just plain broke the ability for a download to happen and only after a reboot would it work again. kmttg was able to get the now playing list etc but not to download the file. Next time it happens I'll check to see if the streaming/transferring capability between premier sis also broken before I reboot.

    The "Server Busy" problem is strictly TTG related and has never affected MRV/MRS for me. Part of the problem is when transferring to PC it is a lot more CPU intensive (decrypt, demux, remux, encrypt again) compared to MRV/MRS.

    I have the getcover.py running on my Linux box but I believe the steps I used for installing python on my windows machine were from the website:
    http://www.ehow.com/how_2116627_install-python-windows.html

    and to install fuzzywuzzy on my linux box I used :
    git clone git://github.com/seatgeek/fuzzywuzzy.git fuzzywuzzy
    cd fuzzywuzzy
    python setup.py install

    This question applies equally to pyTivo and probably TD but this thread was currently easier to get to.

    Is there some limitation to the .tivo file format that prevents the channel information from being written to it?

    We recently bought a refurbished 10' Toshiba Thrive tablet to play videos for our 1-year-old son during an upcoming trip. I found kmttg today - absolutely fantastic! This is exactly what I've been looking for. Very cool.

    I also tried the latest ffmpeg, adding/modifying the options as previously noted. File size and visual quality seemed identical, but it was twice as slow (13fps versus 26fps with the ffmpeg 'packaged' with kmttg). Normally I like to be using the latest and greatest, but this time I'll stick with the speed.

    If you mean the CHANNEL Number (displayMajorNumber) and CHANNEL Name (callsign) it was recorded from, I don't think so as this is what I have from a recent recording on my Premiere that I transferred using kmttg with metadata checked.

    Code:
    title : American Icon: Muscle Car
    seriesTitle : American Icon: Muscle Car
    description : Detroit continues to produce powerful vehicles until the 1970s gas crisis and government regulations bring an end to the muscle-car era. 
    time : 2012-04-18T01:00:00Z
    isEpisode : true
    iso_duration : PT30M
    originalAirDate : 2012-04-17T00:00:00Z
    episodeTitle : End of an Era
    isEpisodic : true
    showingBits : 4098
    tvRating : x3
    episodeNumber : 013
    displayMajorNumber : 754
    callsign : VEL
    seriesId : SH01470291
    vProgramGenre : Auto
    
    But, you are correct in that this info gets pulled from the TiVo when kmttg transfers (TTG) the .TiVo file to the PC. The actual .TiVo file on the PC does not contain the channel info in either xml chunk 1 or 2.

    I'm sure others have had this problem, but I can't find the answer in the 134 page thread.

    I upgraded to v0p8r, and I cannot download any shows. It was working before. I also installed the service, but it isn't downloading anything through the service or the GUI.

    Here's the error I'm getting:
    Code:

    Turn off TS transfers. i.e. Disable the setting: config-Program Options-Download TiVo files in Transport Stream format.
    tivodecode can't handle TS TiVo files properly.

    Transport stream was enabled. Now, it's disabled. Still no joy. I restarted kmttg and checked the config.ini--<TSDownload> is set as 0. I also tried turning off "Combine download and tivodecode decrypt" since you indicated that could be a problem. I'm still getting the same error.

    I decided to punt and just re-install kmttg.

    I can download from my new TiVo, but I still can't download from my old TiVo. I did reboot both TiVos last night, but it failed again after the reboot. When a download fails like this, does something get stuck on the TiVo so that it needs a reboot?

    And, since I'm not at home, is there a way to reboot the TiVo through the kmttg GUI?

    First - thanks to all for your continued support as I learn to work with kmttg. My latest question is on out of sync audio. In both iTunes and on my iPad as well as in VLC after choosing the encode of ff_ipad the audio and video are way out of sync...The video is way ahead of the audio - maybe 3 seconds. Any ideas how to fix this and yet still have a format that can be imported to my iPad? I had chosen ff_h264_high_rate but it would not sync to my iPad....

    Perhaps you have partial failed transfers left over now. Make sure you clean up any past failed transfer files before attempting to download again, or under config->File Settings enable "Overwrite existing files" option such that kmttg won't try and use existing partial files.

    You should configure kmttg for ProjectX and include "QS Fix" as a task in addition to the encode task. i.e. The mpg file needs to be run through ProjectX before the encoding step to clean up issues with it that are causing the A/V sync problems during encoding.
