    Thanks so much for the quick release fix for kmttg. Works fine now using curl. If only Tivo Desktop engineers were as responsive as you!

    I gave this a try. Didn't work - failed with "unknown error." I think this means Tivo Deskop calls curl.exe (which I renamed to something else).

    Ok I just tried the new kmttg_v0p9l. When I start a program it will start for a couple of seconds then repeats. After about 5 tries it will go to this or similar.

    <h2>Bad Request</h2>
    Download failed to file: <parsed filename>.TiVo
    Exit code: 0
    % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
    Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed

    It does this about 4 time and the it will end. I reset the the clock back to 02-13-2013, and still did not help.
    I reinstalled kmttg_v0p9k and set the clock back to 02-13-2013

    I posted this Tivo Desktop problem to Tivo directly last night. Got this answer:

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

    We were made aware of an issue with the Desktop software this morning. We are actively investigating the issue. Most of these appear to have happened with security updates on the computer, router, or operating systems. You can use this link for troubleshooting procedures: Answer Title: TiVo Desktop for PC: Troubleshooting
    Answer Link: http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/196
    If this doesn't work, please give it 24-48 hours and test Desktop then. If you are still not able to transfer, please let us know.

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

    My reply:

    It has nothing to do with security up on the computer, router, or operating systems. It is caused by Tivo using an expired coookie. See TivoCommunity discussion at:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=9526972#post9526972

    Only Tivo can fix this. If you are telling people to update their computers or routers, you are wasting a lot of people's time on things that won't work.

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

    Maybe it will do some good.

    Sounds like you are not running v0p9l version to me. Unless you see --cookie sid=abc as part of the curl command then you are not running the right version. Works for me and others already posted it works for them too, so if you are using the right version then beats me - java downloads is still another option.

    I have been using the Java option in KMTTG and it was why I never encountered that SID problem.

    Too bad nobody at TiVo is smart enough, or humble enough, to check here on TCF for the answer first.

    Switching to java downloads is not working for me (Mac OS 10.8.x mountain lion) - I'm using the latest version of kmttg.

    Apple products are currently blocking Java, so this might apply.

    If you have v0p9l version released today you shouldn't need java download option.

    kmttg spits out the curl command being used once download starts. Yes java downloads work with auto transfers.

    Thanks this time Java worked. I like curl because it is a little faster then java I believe.
    I seems like every thing try turns to **** for me.

    Welcome to the club.

    Do I really have to tell you what happened when we tried to set up a membership database and print up membership cards? :)

    In unrelated news, I really like the export season pass feature. Thank you for adding this :)

    (I know there was an updated kmttg which makes the Java workaround unnecessary...)

    But wasn't here a new Java released beyond the blocked version? I thought there was.

    Thanks! I was using the previous version. Just DL'd v0p9l and it seems to be working now.

    (BTW, the Java issue on Macs was fixed about a week ago.)

    If you're looking for a fix for iTivo, here's one that I found:

    First, open Terminal and type in this command: 'curl -c cookies.txt -d "tivo:MAK" http:/ /tivoip:80'
    (replace "MAK" with the Media Access Key and "tivoip" with the ip of your tivo) (and it won't let me post any "links" since it's my second post so remove the space between the first and second slash)
    Then cookies.txt will be placed in your home folder.
    Open it, and change the value 1360972800 to whatever you want (it's the number of seconds past January 1, 1970 that the cookie will expire). I just changed the first 1 to a 2.
    Then, save it to some folder out of the way (I just threw it in my Documents folder).
    Then, go to iTivo in the Applications folder, right-click, and click "Show Package Contents". Go to Contents, then Resources, then right-click on http-fetcher.pl, and open it in Text-Edit. Once there, change "-c /tmp/cookies.txt" to "-b /Users/'homefolder'/Documents/cookies.txt" (change 'homefolder' to the name of your user account). Then re-open iTivo and it should start working again!
