    Moyekj,

    With KMTTG, if I wanted to push video to multiple TiVos, I would have to go to the Configure menu to change the PyTivo push destination. Its also easier to forget where the pushes would go and it would end on the wrong Tivo.

    Can you change/add a Push destination to a checkbox on the Tivo tabs (only one checked box can be applied at any time).

    Thanks -- it's sounding like that's what the issue is. I just happened across that option the other day within tivo desktop - I saw that it was enabled, and I just disabled it. Since then, I can transfer and encode. Looks like I'll have to play with videoredo.

    Thanks again!

    Hi all,
    Long time viewer, first time poster.....

    I have a quick question about the custom command option in kmttg (kmttg_v0p8u on Mac OSX 10.8). I have a (very) quick and dirty shell script that I would like to run after encoding has taken place, and so in the custom command space I entered:
    "~/Desktop/customtest.csh [encodeFile]" (without the quotes)

    Clicking OK then generates this error message:

    custom command setting does not start with a valid file: '~/Desktop/customtest.csh [encodeFile]'

    Could some kind soul/kmttg guru show me the error of my ways please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Jimbob :confused:

    Replace '~' with full path to your home dir. (~ is a shell shortcut, kmttg needs the real full path to the command).

    If you want to do it manually, just telnet into the TiVo and issue the command. If you want to automate it, you need to use something like Expect to spawn a telnet session and issue the command.

    If you want more details, take it over to the Linux discussion stickied in this forum. Expect isn't strictly a Linux interpreter, but few people use Expect outside of *nix, so I think it would be OK.

    Awesome! Thank you very much - both for the answer, and kmttg! :)

    Is anybody working on this? Does anybody (besides the VideoReDo people) know the exact details about why tivodecode doesn't work on them?

    I now have a Premiere 4, and would like to have faster downloads!

    VideoReDo simply uses the DirectShow filter from TiVo Desktop so no need to know the details. If you have Windows you can actually leverage the same filter to decrypt videos without VideoRedo using GraphEdit and removing everything after de-muxer and inserting a muxer followed by a File Writer in the graph to save to a file. (Before tivodecode days that is what the various 3rd party decrypt tools were doing).

    Sorry, I guess I wasn’t clear. I *don’t* have Windows.. I want to do it on a Mac, and heck, having the info out there for Linux people would be good too.

    Since I’m already posting, this is possibly a FAQ, but I have my Premiere set up (and it knows it has lifetime subscription), and kmttg can get the metadata file, but ends up barfing when it tries to download. Obviously I will post more specific info (exact error) the next time I try when I’m home.. But IIRC, it seems to basically not be getting data back, and complains about a 'chunk' error.

    My two Tivos (Premiere 4 and Tivo HD) DO see each other, though I haven’t yet tried downloading between them directly.

    I’m likely going to go home for a few mins before I go out, but probably won’t have time to get more info until tomorrow.

    I realized I probably have to manually enter my MAK.. Just like I did for the TiVo iPhone app.

    Sorry, seems kind of silly that since all machines already have the same network, that it would "know" they all have the same MAK. I *guess* you could use kmttg & the Tivo app at separate houses for example.

    Nope, there's only one spot for a MAK in the prefs... So why can't I download from my Premiere 4?

    @mattack, several things to try:
    1. reboot TiVo
    2. disable combined download/decrypt
    3. enable java downloads
    4. download with a browser

    Using v0p8v, and found that while transferring a show, and refreshing the PL on the same Tivo at the same time, will slow the transfer down to as low as .1 mpbs. The transfer resumes after the PL job is done.

    Have you used it with multiple Tivos? So I did reboot the Tivo (I tried some of the others before rebooting it, and after).

    This is with the newest released version..

    It seems like it isn't actually filling in my MAK for *EITHER* Tivo now..

    See -mak MAK showing up. The MAK is definitely set correctly in the prefs.

    Also, I have only 48 shows on my Premiere 4, but it got the now playing list REALLY slowly, 12 or so at a time.

    So now I'm not sure if I can successfully download from EITHER Tivo.

    Do you have "Download and decrypt at the same time" enabled?

    I *didn't* (upon trying some of the steps above), but turned it back on, and turned OFF java downloads.. and it seems to be working now..

    Weird. (Because I'm 99% positive I was using this _same_ setup initially.. But the Tivo was giving back weird errors at one point -- 503 after I switched to javadownload I saw that.. Then rebooted it today..)

    FYI, the message window deliberately replaces your real 10 digit MAK with "MAK" to protect posters in forums such as this from unintentionally revealing it.

    When I download, decrypt & encode (using hb tivo hd same res), the file created is half the size (great), but it takes FOREVER to transfer back to a TiVo for viewing later.

    Is there a better encode option for storing on a pc/mac & transferring back to a TiVo in HD?
