    Looks like it has the information needed to determine container, video & audio so kmttg QSF should detect it as such and treat it as mpeg2 transport stream (assuming you have recent kmttg version and correct VRDscripts files). Of course you need to point kmttg to use this ffmpeg version as well.

    An interesting idea ... if moyekj can figure out how to make it work, what about having a movie lookup button and/or a TV lookup button? If the buttons can be configured to go to the user's preferred sources that would be even better, e.g., IMDB vs. TMDB or TVDB vs. TVRage.

    Container and video, but the audio is bogus. (This is why pyTivo ignores the audio that FFmpeg reports for .TiVo files, and just assumes it's compatible.)

    For my needs just knowing the type is enough (in this case ac3). In fact just container and video is all I need to determine what to do in VideoRedo. I don't need the detailed A/V specs, just the types.

    Thank you both, wmcbrine for the tip on getting a new distro of FFmpeg and Moyekj for creating kmttg and confirming the new FFmpeg should work. I'm burning up the ethernet again:D

    Yes, I'm now using kmttg again, since my ReadyNAS no longer does automatic backups.

    Yes, it's cross-platform. You can read about the latest version here:

    http://code.google.com/p/aor-javasi...JavaSim/lib/BrowserLauncher2-README.txt?r=437

    It's open source. The version posted at the link above has had a lot of bells and whistles added since I used it. I have available an older version which is a single .java source file. I tried to send it to you via email, but you have email contact turned off. My email contact is on, if you want to contact me to get the file.

    Way too much work for a problem that others have already solved for you!

    Nice find! Hopefully this is what moyekj needs.

    Thanks

    Maybe have 2 or 3 small buttons out of the way to the right (as I described in my first post),
    EDIT: except maybe to the right of the DELETED/REMOTE/INFO tabs - since there is more free space there and the amount of free space allocated doesn't seem to change. Also at this level, only one set of buttons could serve the entire set of REMOTE tabs.

    They could be centrally configured from a page under the CONFIGURE menu, similar in appearance to the PROGRAMS and PROGRAM OPTIONS tabs with fill-in-the-blank style configuration.

    Basic idea might be to offer these parameters (with user suggestions located next to each blank) for each button:

    BUTTON LABEL 1,
    (button label 1 example: "IMDB", "TMDB", etc)

    BUTTON QUERY STRING 1 (user will incorporate both website-specific static query text and "SHOW" Java variable to produce a working query string),
    (button query string 1 example: h-t-t-p-:-/-/w-w-w.imdb.com/find?q={"SHOW" variable}

    BUTTON LABEL 2, etc.

    My apologies if this is already incorporated into the code just uploaded by "howards". :)

    The web browser launch code given above didn't work for me, however I think I have something in place that may be good enough. Since there are many tables in kmttg listing shows, having a dedicated button doesn't really make sense. Instead a keyboard shortcut such as "q" that you press with a table show selected should do the trick more elegantly. Perhaps also a config option that allows you to define the base web query, defaulting to the imdb query you outlined.
    (There's already a "j" keyboard shortcut for most tables that dumps information on selected entry to message window that probably not many know about - mostly useful for me for debugging/developing purposes).

    If you can foresee doing this with a keyboard shortcut (which sounds great by the way), then could a centrally located button also be used to trigger that same bit of code? In terms of execution and workflow, that would be equivalent to what I had imagined in the first place.

    There's no good place for a "central" button that can be used for NPL tabs and all remote tabs at same time. The space to the right of tabs can't be used and I don't want to add another row in main kmttg GUI just for it. Once you know about the keyboard shortcut what's the problem with it?

    Nothing at all. That just represents a departure from the norm. I just wasn't aware that the buttons would be difficult. To be clear though, either way, I would still use it. I am sure it would be a welcome addition for most. I know it would fit into my workflow nicely.

    I haven't tried the new web browser launch code I linked to, but I'm still using an old version and it works great.

    v0p9m version is now released.
    Highlights of this release:
    * If tivo.com username & password is available kmttg will augment local Now Playing data with RPC data from middlemind.tivo.com for series 3 units where possible (for episode and/or movie year information as well as original air date). Similar to RPC enabled TiVos you will see a Remote job run following NPL retrieval.
    * Added "q" keyboard shortcut that by default will perform an imdb web query on currently selected title in any table listing shows.
    * New Wiki page summarizing all keyboard shortcuts:
    keyboard_shortcuts

    See release_notes Wiki for full details.

    I installed the newest version of kmttg to fix the issue that came up last week. In the past when it completed the conversion from tivo to mp4 files, it would go out and get anything new off the tivo. Now I have to restart the windows service before it will go pickup new files. I am sure I am just doing something stupid, but any help here would be great.

    Running a S3 and kmttg is running on a 2011 windows home server.

    Could be a bug as there were changes made to auto mode in last release. If you can, please post or email me your auto.log file showing this problem.
