    Don't blame yourself, this is what ThAbtO always does.

    A heads up. The newest version of ffmpeg (1.0) doesn't work with (at least some) of the present encoding profiles.

    It also doesn't seem to work well with pyTivo pushes.

    Not with every file, NO. Right now, only "Once upon a Time" video files are doing it, and not all of them. I've fallen behind on the show and was trying to process it and catch-up over the holidays.

    Person of Interest which I was also processing, did not act-up at all.


    Because I am on version v08p of KMTTG, and I think TiVo software has changed, so maybe I missed something?

    I have now updated to the latest KMTTG version.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    I had seen something on page 103 of this forum about the quotation marks, but I did not understand it. I am not sure HOW they got in there... (I mean the Quotation Marks).

    After re-examining your msg on the path, file. I see double quotes("), can you try again without them?

    The quotation marks should not be there in file name. Did you intentionally rename the file to add them? kmttg would strip them out when making its own name so you must be starting with existing file in FILES mode. Also "1 mpg Output Directory" seems like a funny name, is that intentional as well?

    Then you need to single out what is different about the ones that are failing and why this difference would prevent you from creating the file or writing to it. Does the file get created? If so, is it zero length?

    TTG is just standard SHTML, and so no, it hasn't changed. RPC has, but that should not effect TTG. I suppose the naming scheme might have changed, but I can't imagine why.

    I don't expect that will help.

    Have you inspected the name of the shows on the TiVo from the NPL? Have you inspected them via a web browser?

    I have been using this software for some time now (as well as the windows service).

    I am using the v0p9b on a Windows 7 machine.

    For the longest time, the service has been working fine. However all of a sudden, I noticed my programs were not transferring. I indicated that the service was stopped, so I went into the "Computer Management" window to restart the service.

    When I try to start the service, I get the following error...
    "Windows could not start the KTTMG on Local Computer. For more information, review the system event log. If this is a non Windows service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 2".

    I've tried reinstalling the service and made sure to put in the account log in information as mentioned in the kttmg instructions.

    The event Window displays the following...

    The service terminated with a service - specific error. The system cannot find the file specified...

    I haven't had a problem with pyTiVo pushes.

    Here's the encode profile I'm using


    Code:
    # Description (single line, keep short)
    <description>
    mpeg4 container, res x=1280 h.264 video, copy audio (ac3), 48KHz/160Kbps 2 chan aac audio
    
    # Encode command or script (single line)
    # Known keywords: FFMPEG, HANDBRAKE, MENCODER, PERL, INPUT, OUTPUT, PWD, CPU_CORES, SRTFILE
    <command>
    FFMPEG -y -i INPUT -threads CPU_CORES -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map 0:1 -c:v libx264 -level 41 -subq 6 -me_range 16 -qmin 10 -qmax 50 -g 300 -s 1280x720 -r 29.97 -b:v 2500k -c:a:0 copy -f mp4 -c:a:1 libvo_aacenc -ac 2 -ab 160k -ar 48000 -f mp4 OUTPUT

    I've gone back to the older version of ffmpeg.

    For those who've asked attached is the media data from a video which pushes find with pyTivo using the older version of ffmpeg but not with 1.0

    I figured this out. When I installed Java, I installed the 64-bit version. A couple days ago, I got a message that a new version of Java was available, so I installed it. I assumed that was a newer version of the 64-bit version that I already had.

    Well...it wasn't. I was the 32-bit version, so I had Java installed twice on my PC (one 32-bit version and one 64-bit version). I removed the 32-bit version and upgraded the 64-bit version, and the service started properly.

    If you're using the 64-bit version Java and get an alert for an update, I would suggest doing it manually since the alert I got installed the wrong version causing this problem.

    FYI, I updated kmttg profiles so that they are compatible with both newest ffmpeg and the kmttg packaged version of ffmpeg. Most of the changes were replacing -sameq with -qscale 1 and adding -strict -2 for any profile using aac audio. The updates will be part of next release. From my brief experimentation seemed to me like newer ffmpeg was slower in general.

    I am not sure how the Quotation marks are getting in there. My current naming scheme is this:

    Somehow though, it is not being adhered to. I don't know why. What should the naming scheme be?

    I created the following directories:
    to match the directory structure. Is that structure wrong?

    You didn't answer my questions above. Have you inspected the names on the TiVo?

    That is not evident, one way or the other.

    Anything you like - just don't put in \. /, *, ?, ", ', [, ], or &.

    No, just a little odd looking.

    The files on the TiVo do not have the quotation marks, OF COURSE, but these files were from the Hard Drive, so that where I might have went wrong. TiVoToGo had already downloaded them, so I was processing them from there, and they did have quotation marks there. Is that the problem.

    I re-processed a file this afternoon, BTW, without a problem.

    You mean TiVo Desktop. Yes you should rename without any special characters such as quotations if you want to use them with kmttg. Better yet, just download with kmttg and you won't have file name issues to start with.

    You're right, TiVo Desktop.

    I had been having trouble downloading with KMTTG, that's why I did that.

    v0p9c version just released. Several RPC remote enhancements in this release including:
    * Season Passes table now lists # of upcoming shows after each show title (if any) and any Season Pass with episodes that won't record due to conflicts are marked with a pinkish background.
    * New Upcoming and Conflicts buttons added to Season Passes tab for viewing upcoming shows and conflicts for a selected season pass.
    * Explain button added to Won't Record tab which can be used to list all shows in conflict for a show that won't record listed under programSourceConflict folder.
    * For TiVos with RPC remote enabled in kmttg, any missing OriginalAirDate and EpisodeNumber information is now obtained for all shows from RPC data (which is usually much more complete than the traditional TTG XML data). After the *remote NP List* job completes the NPL table will be populated with the extra data and titles with missing episode numbers are updated. When you create pyTivo metadata file the added information will also be included there now as well. (This obsoletes the need to right click on a show to obtain OriginalAirDate information for RPC enabled TiVos).
    * Several other enhancements.
    See release_notes Wiki for all the details.
