    I haven't ever built kmttg.. is it hard? (i.e. I know *nothing* about Java, but obviously know how to build things with makefiles and such.)

    I don't _need_ it anytime at all, it would just be a cool feature.

    OK, it sounds like your patch does do what I want -- create an episode title ONLY if there isn't already one there..

    I skimmed that other thread mentioned.. has anyone reported to Tivo the change in guide data that apparently caused this problem?

    Now that the shows coming off of Tivo will actually playback for my daughter, I decided to start trying to using the 'service' again, but it won't start. It worked before.

    I searched this thread and only found 1 result that was close. But I'm already running the 32 bit version of Java, so that wasn't it.

    Wrapper has 'all access'.

    I receive error 7034 in Event Viewer.

    I ran the .bat files in an elevated command prompt and received this in response:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\kmttg_v0p8r\service\win32>uninstall-kmttg-service
    wrapper | kmttg removed.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\kmttg_v0p8r\service\win32>install-kmttg-service
    wrapper | kmttg installed.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\kmttg_v0p8r\service\win32>start-kmttg-service
    wrapper | Starting the kmttg service...
    wrapper | The kmttg service was launched, but failed to start.
    Press any key to continue . . .
    C:\Program Files (x86)\kmttg_v0p8r\service\win32>

    When I try to start it in Services, it says it terminated unexpectedly.

    Which way do I go now?

    Like moyekj, I turn off suggestions, so I'll accept the fact that there are two different sections. However, unlike him (and you, IIRC), I do use KUID and I've never seen it have any effect on sort order.

    Well, I'm using Eclipse so it's fairly easy for me to build something that works.

    Ok. So not all that urgent and you can wait until it is ready for prime time, however it gets there.

    It was reported to both TiVo and Tribune and TiVo claimed it would be fixed by 7/31. Maybe if some else (nudge, nudge, wink wink) were to add their voice...

    Hmm. You know, you are right. I had merely assumed the KUID entries were grouped separately, but they fall at the bottom of the scheduled list merely because, not surprisingly, they are generally older than other scheduled recordings. I had thought it was a separate grouping, but in fact it is merely because the newest KUID is older than the oldest to-be-deleted show on most of the TiVos (for example on one TiVo, 2010 for the newest KUID vs 2011 for the oldest regularly scheduled show):


    There most definitely IS a grouping of the Suggestions vs regularly scheduled programs, as you can see above, and except when I want to specifically sort by some other criteria (usually alpha by title), I much prefer it that way. The TiVo treats the Suggestions a bit differently than regularly scheduled programs, and so do I.

    I do use KUID, of course, but judiciously and only when it makes sense.

    No offense, but I just don't see how anyone can say that. Take a look at the list of suggestions above. Each and every one of those could have taken me an hour or more to find, yet every last one except for Real Housewives... (my roomate's influence on the programming - I just gave her that TiVo) is one I would enjoy watching at some point in time or at least taking a peek. How much time did it take me to select the dozens of them on the TiVo? 0. What impact do they have on the TiVo otherwise? 0.

    Yes. Otherwise they are merely placed at the bottom, below the regularly scheduled programs and right above the RDF.

    I was wondering that, myself. Perhaps he was sedated. :D

    Oh, cool! Yeah, that works. 'Problem solved, and thanks!

    I have so many *intentional* recordings I already can never get to that suggestions would never get watched. And actually suggestions on does have quite a big effect. It keeps the Recently Deleted folder practically empty so makes that feature pretty worthless - and yes I do use Recently Deleted on occasion. Also I seem to recall a long time ago when I tried it that if you subsequently do turn off suggestions that it messes up your NPL by lumping all the suggestions along with non-suggestion recordings (instead of keeping them lumped in a suggestions folder) such that you can no longer easily distinguish one from the other. That really ticked me off when it happened. Not sure if it still does that but I suspect so. Finally, during the day when I don't record anything the rest of my family quite often does watch live TV (grimace) so having suggestions on would screw them up. So there are plenty of reasons to not want suggestions on from my perspective.

    No spaces or special chars. Just numbers. When I tested it ealier today (well yesterday at this point :)) by adding [month][mday][year][hour][min] to the file name template, the resulting string added to the file name was 072720121930

    Oh, I figured you were running Linux. The forward slashes in the file path sort of pointed in that direction.:). I just thought that a Linux version of TD had been released at some point.

    Why not just add [mday][hour][min] to the file name template after "(Recorded"? Or does "(Recorded" have to be at the end?

    Is there any way for kmttg to transfer a file while it's actually recording on the TiVo? It would be nice to be able to start a transfer and decrypt in a live state so I could stream some football to my iPad or iPhone before the entire game is finished. (using Air Video)
  14. lrhorer

    lrhorer New Member

    Nope. The TiVo doesn't allow it, AFAIK.

    The only way that comes to mind for me would be to break up the recording in to smaller parts with manual recordings.

    No, that would without question require a pretty major re-write, although I admit it would eliminate most of the most serious complaints I have of the program by default. The goofy interface would no doubt remain, however, and vidmgr + kmttg just pee all over the limited feature set of TDT.

    Well, neither. The format is: " (Recorded <DOW> <Mon> <Day>, <Year>, <Channel>).mp[4g]". The scripts expect the field lengths of each value after "(Recorded " to be fixed as [3 3 2, 4, ], with everything after the 18th character up to the final parenthesis being the channel ID. So for example:

    for mon in $monthList
    	[[ $mon == ${datName:4:3} ]] && monNum=$(( 22 - $x ))
    	x=$(( $x + 1 ))
    if [[ ${datName:8:1} == "0" ]]
    	dayNum=$(( 41 - ${datName:9:1} ))
    	daynum=$(( 41 - ${datName:8:2} ))
    yearNum=$(( 3200 - ${datName:12:4} ))
    They expect everything up to the " (Recorded " string to be the name of the show, and treat a hyphen there as potentially meaning the program is part of a series. Of course I could rewrite the scripts. I could put the hour and minute after the final parenthesis, I suppose, and trap any text there, removing it for the final version of the file name. That would, I think, break the least amount of code, and would make splicing the episodes together using VRD easier, as well. Hmm.

    I do have an HD Homerun I'm pretty sure I'll never need again.

    It's the non-cable card version.

    No thanks. I made the decision to stick with my $1000 investment in two Premiere units with lifetime. I did ponder the possibility of returning these and buying an HD Homerun Prime to use with WMC and a few Xbox 360 extenders, but I have a feeling this solution would not be as nice as two dedicated TiVo Premiere units......

    Still, if you could get a stream from it, you would be able to watch. It would, however, be live only...
