    Hi there, I have been using both iTiVo and kmttg for a few days now and prefer both of them to TiVo Desktop but I have a problem with around 1Tb of .TiVo files that I have already downloaded in TS format and would like to decrypt but tivodecode fails with bus error.

    I have used the TiVo web server to download a test file in PS format and tivodecode works just fine on that so I know it is the TS format that worries tivodecode. I am currently running 0.2pre4 on Intel Mac OSX10.7.5. I believe there is a 0.3pre5 version of tivodecode that can handle TS format but I cannot find Mac OSX binaries. Can anyone help?

    You can set KMTTG to not use TS and it would be fine.

    Hi all, there was talk a while back about UK Virgin Media changing something with certificates and breaking kmttg functionality. Something about client cert passwords? Was it resolved, and if not, what kind of help is required?

    A previous US series 4 software update TiVo introduced tighter RPC authentication which eventually I figured out how to overcome and recent versions of kmttg now work again. At that time it also worked with Virgin software. I think there was a mention in Undeground forum about a new Virgin software update which broke it again, but you should try latest kmttg to confirm. The latest 20.2.2 US software (not fully deployed to everyone yet) still works though.
    If there's an Android app which works with Virgin software it may be possible to get it working with Virgin software again if it doesn't already.

    I am now using PS for all NEW downloads from my TiVo but I have approximately 1Tb of already downloaded files on an external hard drive that I would like to be able to view on my TV. The only way I can view them is if I physically transfer them back to my TiVo box (which is a cumbersome task). What I would really like to do is decrypt the already downloaded files (all in TS format) and stream them back to my TV (same TV that the TiVo is connected to).

    Please note that I have a Macbook and Linux server - no PC available.

    Anyone out there got a Intel Mac binary for tivodecode 0.3pre5 with TS support?

    Have you tried to just transfer them back to the Tivo without decoding it?

    On Linux (and probably Mac as well) it's very easy to build a binary from source assuming you have gcc/g++ development tools installed.

    1. Download the source
    2. gunzip -c tivodecode-0.3pre4.tar.gz | tar xvf -
    3. cd tivodecode-0.3pre4
    4. ./configure
    5. make

    That's it and you'll have your binary. However, I and others had trouble properly decrypting some TS transfers with it and nobody has looked into fixing the remaining issues with the source AFAIK.

    However, as stated above if your intention is just to send them back to your TiVo there is no need to decrypt them. Just use pyTivo to transfer them back to your TiVo. Don't see what is so "cumbersome" about it. You can even use pyTivo push web server to queue up a whole bunch at once.

    Thanks, Kevin. I do not have any development tools installed and not keen to do so therefore I was hoping someone might post a Mac binary on sourceforge or code.google. If no-one has an Intel Mac binary then I might go the source code compilation route 'coz it is less work than transferring 200 files back to TiVo one by one.
    Just downloaded Xcode and then the Command Line Tools, compiled and built 0.3pre4 and ran it on a TS file. It worked!!

    Thanks, Kevin. If this works with all my existing .TiVo files I will be really happy. Also happy to post my tivodecode binary to wherever it is required.

    The latest version seems to work OK apart from all the extras it offers when you turn on ipad style comms. It complains about having the wrong active partner id.

    v0p9b just released with some enhancements based on recent requests in this thread including right click on NPL show to obtain originalAirDate and ability to create Wishlists with RPC remote. Also a nice RPC addition is a "Network Connect" button in the Info tab for an easy way to start a network connection without having to do it on TiVo itself. See release_notes Wiki for full details.

    I just wanted to say thank you for this software. I use it daily and it makes my TiVo life fabulous. I appreciate all your hard work. Can't wait to try the latest build.

    I've been hearing some weird behavior from a few recordings transferred from my Premier Elite last week. I have transferred the files and just run them through tivodecode and have discovered that ABC is now including "Audio description" on some shows such as The Middle "Thanksgiving IV" episode (the shows have an AD logo on-screen during the beginning). According to http://abc.go.com/site/audio-description , this should be heard via an SAP channel. For some reason, I seem to be getting this audio narration on my transferred recordings. I'm watching the .mpg video files either via VLC or Windows 7 Media Player. Anyone seeing similar behavior? I am not by my Tivo to see whether this is a problem with only ktmmg or if even Tivo Desktop .tivo files display the same issue. Any thoughts on removing these (from newly transferred recordings of the existing ones).

    Many thanks for the update! I'm having a little issue with the new release, however. Am I missing something? When I right-click on an entry, I get a response that the extended metadata is acquired, but nothing else happens. If I left-click on the entry again, nothing happens. Only if I right click, allow the data to be acquired, left-click on a different entry, and then left-click on the entry in question again is the extended metadata displayed. Am I doing something wrong? If not, would it be possible to have kmttg automatically display the accessed show data again when the extended data is acquired?

    The episode display is really nice, btw. Thanks again.

    Edit: Oh, I see. Right-click on the entry *RATHER THAN* left-clicking first works. It's workable.

    I am a little confused as to the purpose or result of the "right-clicking" on the NPL.

    When right-clicking, I get the message:

    Obtaining extended metadata for: Real Time With Bill Maher
    extended metadata acquired

    I don't get any subsequent information in the window. Is a separate window suppose to pop up? Does the extended info get incorporated in the meta.txt file? None of the above?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just noticed in the release notes for v0p8v, that "atomicParsley job will now add --artwork imageFile to run if image : imageFile tag exists in metadata file".

    I have cover art in all my folders. It would be great if kmttg could automatically add "image : folder.jpg" to the metadata.txt file (or an option to do so).

    Would that be easy to do?

    It shows in the bottom window where the description of the show usually is.

    It threw me a little at first, too. Do not right-click on the title or highlight it with the keyboard first. With some other entry highlighted, right click on the selection. The OAD, if available, will show with the other text. Any subsequent selection of the title will also show the extended data.

    I don't think that is what he meant. If the show is already highlighted, then right-clicking does not refresh the log window, it only reports the extended data has been retrieved. One must select a different title, and then return to the original title for the OAD to show. That, or just right-click on a show that is not highlighted.

    I got a TiVo Stream. kmttg (0p8v) sees the Stream as TWO devices (STR D538 and DVR-D538) upon launch. Also, of course I get an error message because kmttg can't communicate with it. (I could turn off "Look for TiVos on network", but I think their IP addresses sometimes change.)

    I don't suppose kmttg could avoid the TiVo Stream when looking for devices?

    I would need more information such as first few chars of the TSN for the Stream to explicitly block it.
