Not as far as I can tell.
Yeah, it definitely should be, or close to it.
I had already tried that. Something in Java must have gotten mucked up, although how I have no idea, because Galleon has the same trouble, and kmttg started acting oddly. I'll have to take the time to purge Java later. For the time being I am running kmttg on another platform.
Do you have an alternative to VideoReDo to join files? Can Handbrake do that?
Also, I'm finding ffmpeg is failing with large files, on the order of processing a 11, 795,000 K TiVo file. Is that a known problem, or is it unique to me?
Thanks for your continued help,
Handbrake and ffmpeg does not do joining, just converting. I use VideoReDo as it can edit commercials as well as join multiple files into one in the order I want.
Just you. I doubt it's the size per se, probably glitches in those specific files?
Does anyone have a profile for a Toshiba Thrive?
Recently with new Elite I used tivo.com to copy over all season passes from a Premiere that is being retired. I use tivo.com because the RPC method only works for programs that currently have guide data and I have a bunch of season passes that don't have guide data right now. However I've discovered that any season pass that was created from tivo.com cannot be deleted properly using RPC remote. The RPC call actually returns success for deletion but it actually doesn't. Deleting from TiVo itself does work. Deleting season passes that were created on TiVo or via RPC work fine, it's just the tivo.com created ones that won't delete.
Does anyone know how to BRAKE a video file into 2 (like a premiere episode of #1 and #2 since they are titled separately)?
Do the VideoRedo forums talk about that?
Thank you if you can point me to the right place in advance.
Using VideoReDo, its simple. Just like when editing commercials out. You highlight the section you do not want, and remove (temporarily), save as a new .mpg file. Next do the same thing but after removing your delete marks, you mark and remove the other portion to save as another .mpg file.
I tried using different version of Kmttg with this problem. It take any where from 30 to 45 seconds to list the programs. At the very top it flash about every 10 second until the page loads. What could be the problem?
I have two issues I've just come across. I upgraded to the latest release of kmttg a few weeks ago, and it seems to me the refresh behavior has changed. Previously, when one clicked on the refresh tab for a TiVo, the program listing for that TiVo would go blank until the new listing was obtained. Now the old listing stays in place until the new listing is retrieved and output. I can see an argument for the new method, but having used it for a couple of weeks, I really find the old behavior to be more of an advantage. Is there any way to have the new software revert to the old behavior?
The second is related to automated downloads. I don't very often transfer series to the server, so I have not made any use of the automated download feature until this time. I recently switched to a new CATV company, however, and there are a few new channels which happen to have a handful of series I am transferring using kmttg. I do not see a way, however, to get kmttg to transfer the content to anything but the default kmttg directory. That drive cannot hold the content, and in any case I want the output to go to the server, not a local workstation drive. Is there any way to tell kmttg to save the downloads to another directory, in this case specifically a network share?
You mean to display the contents of a TiVo? If the Tivo has very much on it in the way of content, that does not sound excessive, to me.
".TiVo Output Dir" under config-File Settings defines the dir for downloaded .TiVo files. If using Windows kmttg service note that there can be issues with Windows service not being able to access network share. When kmttg can't access the specified dir it will default to writing to install dir. To access network share for windows service:
1. Make sure kmttg service runs using your normal login name instead of Windows default service
2. Specify network shares using \\host\path\to\dir syntax
If using windows service I would recommend getting things working using GUI first (Auto Transfers-Run Once in GUI or Auto Transfers-Loop in GUI) before using the service mode which can be a pain.
For Linux it's a lot simpler generally. As long as kmttg can read/write to specified dir it should take what you setup in config.
For your other query about not emptying list on new NPL query I got several complaints about old behavior, especially for people with a lot of entries where it can take several minutes get the list. There is no option for 1 way or the other right now.
It is at the very top. it reads playlist: 0.00.00 kmttg.
You might right I have several hundred programs in the play list. I was wanting to make sure.
I thought it could be done, I just never tried... Maybe I need to give it a chance and see what kind of results I get.
I have determined that, if you have an external TiVo defined in pyTivo and everything else setup for push to external TiVo, you can add it to kmttg using the TSN (dashes removed) as the name and anything in the IP address field. It can then be set as the Push destination and the Push will succeed. Including (I hope) auto pushes.
If you have "Start NPL jobs when starting kmttg GUI" enabled, you will get an error when first starting up since it can't access the remote TiVo but just ignore it.
Something else to check for:
Not sure how you're invoking ffmpeg. Directly (I've never used it directly) or as a side effect of HandBrake?
If using HandBrake, be sure to have "Large file size" checkbox set in the GUI, otherwise you will definitely have problems with output files larger than 4 GB. You would think that HandBrake would output an error/warning if this checkbox wasn't set and it created a large file, but it doesn't warn. It just silently produces a corrupt file. (And I don't care if it puts an assert error in the logs, creating a greater than 4 GB file with 32-bit offset atoms is a known failure, they *shouldn't* allow that file to remain).
Perhaps there's a similar switch for invoking ffmpeg directly.
Small problem with kmttg. For the duration of Olympic coverage, locally Jeopardy! is being shown on a different channel from the normal one, which is the local NBC affiliate. kmttg will not let me create a Season Pass for the "new" channel and issues a message that reads
Using the TiVo GUI itself, I had set up a SP for the summer Olympics on the local NBC affiliate. Then I sought out the listing on CNBC using the guide. From there I took the normal steps to set up a SP on that channel. In the process of setting up options, I became aware that I was actually working with the original SP, not creating a new one on a different channel. Assuming some operator error, I started all over again and sure enough, I could only modify the original SP on the NBC channel, not create a new SP on the CNBC channel, even though I was starting the SP creation from the CNBC listing in the guide.
So, I'm thinking what you saw was a reflection of a limitation in TiVo, not an issue with kmttg.
There are three options under Season Pass Options
You want to use Get Another and then select the proper channel.
