    Are you saying it's more complete than the "TiVoVideoDetails" XML? I don't think I've ever noticed a deficiency there. Or just the "TiVoContainer" XML (which I call "the short form")?

    Yes, TivoVideoDetails is deficient for many shows/episodes for me. For example many (but not all) shows have no EpisodeNumber information in either the TiVoContainer or TiVoVideoDetails XML. Currently right now on my TiVos here are some examples of shows missing the information in XML:
    Grey's Anatomy (ABC HD)
    Revenge (ABC HD)
    666 Park Avenue (ABC HD)
    Burn Notice (USA HD)
    Two and a Half Men (CBS HD)

    There are other examples of well for some shows where most episode numbers are available via XML but not all. i.e. It's very unreliable.

    In contrast, RPC has Episode Number & Original Air Date information for every episodic show.

    I haven't really messed with encoding and figured I would play with it this weekend.

    If I want to say get a result that is comparable to the various 720P MKVs that can be found out in the wild, what would be the best profile? HB_TiVo_HD?

    I am just trying to figure out on my current machine how long it would take since my space is getting low. I also want something that can be quickly pushed back to the Premieres.

    Hi -
    I am trying to figure out what is going wrong - I'm trying to decode a HD video show - it brings it over from the (premiere) Tivo and the decrypted video is sparkling clear and crisp - sadly the sound is just like loud static.
    I've checked "metadata" and "decrypt" - why am I having this problem? Is there a setting I need to check?

    I'm on Windows 7/64 bit and downloaded the windows 7 install today.

    thanks.

    ok - so when I open the same file with the nero kwik media viewer the sound is perfect - it's only when I open it with Window's media player that it sounds badly. Am I missing a CODEC or something?

    Have you tried the QSFIX? I believe that addresses some of the audio issues.

    Not sure if this belongs here or the pyTiVo thread.

    After using kmttg to decrypt, cut commercials, and encode, I then try to push back to the TiVo with pyTiVo, but it automatically deletes after the push is complete.

    If I encode the "cut" file separately and push that back to the TiVo, everything is fine.

    The only difference I can see between the two encoded files is that the one that automatically deletes has all the metadata and the cut encode does not.

    Any reason why the one with metadata wouldn't push properly?



    ETA(1): after removing atomicparsley from the encode process, all encodes now push properly. The problem now is that there's very little information when I add them to iTunes.


    ETA(2): downloaded atomicparsley here and pushes work

    Now that I have my atomicparsley issue fixed, I have a question about it,



    Is it possible to customize atomicparsley in any way? I'd like to add a few things to it if possible

    --hdvideo true
    --longdesc (description from metadata file)
    --contentRating TV-MA, TV-14, TV-PG, TV-G, NC-17, R, PG-13, PG

    I can add all of these after the fact, but it would be nice if I could make it part of the automated process.




    also, --year doesn't seem to be working because --grouping before it is blank

    --grouping --year 2012-06-05T00:00:00Z

    http://pytivo.sourceforge.net/forum...-by-kmttg-are-not-showing-properly-t2337.html

    The .txt files that kmttg produces do not display properly when using pyTiVo. I don't know if this is a bug in kmttg pr pyTiVo.

    In the link above I posted two .txt files -- one produced by pyMetaGenerator and one produced by kmttg. The first one works the second one doesn't. The response from wmcbrine was that problem was in the second one:
    mpaaRating : 8
    "mpaaRating: 8" is the problem. This should be changed to "NR", 'Unrated", or "N8".

    Is there a specification for mpaaRating? Is 8 valid?

    hi - I tried using QSFIX and still only hear loud static on the converted file.

    I took that back -- that wasn't the problem after all. At least, not for me -- but I don't know what saberman's problem is, because I can't reproduce it. The provided metadata all comes through for me.

    For future reference, though... There is no formal specification for pyTivo metadata text files; the spec is basically "what pyTivo does". The wiki page is not quite up-to-date (although, to be sure, kmttg is not complying with that description, either). But what kmttg does is working, for me. I've made a slight change to pyTivo to explicitly accommodate numeric ratings, but my recommendation is to use the human-readable forms for the rating fields, which is what pyTivo has been doing for a while now. The canonical forms as output by pyTivo are (from metadata.py):

    Code:
    HUMAN = {'mpaaRating': {1: 'G', 2: 'PG', 3: 'PG-13', 4: 'R', 5: 'X',
                            6: 'NC-17', 8: 'NR'},
             'tvRating': {1: 'Y7', 2: 'Y', 3: 'G', 4: 'PG', 5: '14',
                          6: 'MA', 7: 'NR'},
             'starRating': {1: '1', 2: '1.5', 3: '2', 4: '2.5', 5: '3',
                            6: '3.5', 7: '4'}}
    but additional forms are recognized (see metadata.py).

    Did you possibly edit the kmttg one and end up with the description split over two lines?

    I missed the part about the other player working fine. It definitely sounds like a codec issue. Does VLC play it fine?

    Worst case you can try uninstalling TiVo Desktop and reinstalling it, because I believe it will install the necessary codecs for WMC.

    I did a global change of:
    mpaaRating : 8
    to
    mpaaRating : N8
    and the problem went away.

    I just check my copy of metadata.py:
    HUMAN = {'mpaaRating': {'G1': 'G', 'P2': 'PG', 'P3': 'PG-13', 'R4': 'R',
    'X5': 'X', 'N6': 'NC-17', 'N8': 'Unrated'},
    'tvRating': {'x1': 'TV-Y7', 'x2': 'TV-Y', 'x3': 'TV-G',
    'x4': 'TV-PG', 'x5': 'TV-14', 'x6': 'TV-MA',
    'x7': 'Unrated'},
    'starRating': {'x1': '1', 'x2': '1.5', 'x3': '2', 'x4': '2.5',
    'x5': '3', 'x6': '3.5', 'x7': '4'}}

    The file is dated 9/14/2010. Guess it is time to upgrade.

    I think you also need to install the latest version of kmttg.
