    Why? FILES is not the only potential source for performing a push. Some people do a full round trip downloading and then pushing back, for example download, strip out commercials, perhaps re-encode to H.264 and then push back all in 1 shot.

    I tend to agree between Tivo tabs. But the jobs I create under Files are always different than jobs for tivos.

    I sometimes use the round trip with push under a TiVo tab myself.

    This tool FAR exceeds anything any one has done. Great work and it works really, really well.

    Thank you for creating it.

    I'm feeding the file through comskip, then passing it to VRD. When I've finished manually correcting the commercial cuts in VRD, what do I do next? Do I "save" the file in VRD? When I do that, it never seems to give control back to KMTTG; I have to Ctrl-F4 out of VRD, but then KMTTG doesn't find the edited file for the next step. What am I supposed to do after the manual review to save the file and pass control back to KMTTG?

    When you save the video in VRD, you have to use a different filename and the next KMTTG step is using the old filename.

    Simply save the project (File-Save Project) and then exit VRD.

    This happens with 0p9q (and whichever version I had a few minutes ago)..

    1) I connect to my Premiere 4
    2) I try to download Conan episode 3410
    -> it's failing for whatever reason that Tivos get confused every once in a while
    at some point it "turns into" episode 383. It seems like trying it again after it fails 5 times, or sometimes cancelling further attempts. I don't have 100% reproducible steps, but I've seen it happen a whole bunch of times so far.


    Also, kmttg still tries to connect to "STR D538", which has SOMETHING to do with my Tivo Stream I presume. I think it sort of presents itself as two Tivos, and a while ago you fixed the most visible part, but it still tries to get Now Playing from that, which fails.

    Have you tried to delete it from your Tivo list? Does it re-appear afterwards?

    I swear I've done that before.. but now simply deleting it worked.. (I've relaunched & refreshed a few times.)

    The other issue, I'm 100% sure that I was seeing for real!!!

    Also, I tried the "will not record" list for the first time, and it got to 1829/1000 before it finished.

    kmttg gets an estimate of how many total entries are available using a "quick method" so that progress bar is shown while detailed entries are grabbed. However it looks like "quick method" is capped at 1000 entries total which is why you are seeing this.

    For other issue of changing episode #, possible explanation is:
    There are 2 steps to obtaining NPL list in kmttg for series 4 TiVos:
    1. Traditional XML listings obtained via http. series 4 TiVos only return 16 at a time so loops however many times needed to get all entries.
    2. After XML listings are obtained then RPC calls are used to obtain data again including supplemental information such as originalAirDate, episode numbers, etc. and the id needed to be able to play/delete shows.

    So likely what happens is the RPC data (which is generally more accurate) is getting different number for episode # than the XML data which is why you see episode number changing.

    You can probably see this via the GUI. In HDUI see what episode # is listed for that show. Switch over to SDUI and see what episode # is listed there for the show - you should see them as different since SDUI uses XML/local data while HDUI uses RPC data. This also explains why for some shows if you use SDUI you don't see any episode information listed (the XML/local data is missing that information), while HDUI does have the information.

    Hi - That sounded like it would work, but no matter what I try the auto transfer only wants to write to c:\kmttg, and that fails; only the meta file gets written. I removed the service re-added while having an auto config setup. All folders point to a network drive, n:\, logon as my userid which has Administrator, but still no luck.

    Make sure you use the UNC path instead of a mapped volume. I don't believe services can see volumes mapped to UNC shares. i.e. Use following syntax for the UNC paths:
    \\server\share\file_path

    Ahh, UNC. That was it. Thanks so much for your patience.

    The other issue was that CURL stopped working for me, I switched to Java (I have no idea what happened to curl). But at some point my config was lost and it went back to curl, which only pulls the metafiles for me. So switching back to Java, and now a file is downloading and it looks like I'm in business. Thanks again.

    This is sort of related -- but even though I am using attached USB drives for BOTH KMTTG and Pytivo and not a NAS (that will happen by end of summer) -- should I also be using UNC paths and not drive letter paths?

    Don't see how you could use UNC as there is no network path to it unless it has networking capabilities. So no, for USB drives you have to use the volume name (and I believe services can see those too).

    Unfortunately I nuked the episode already and it's not in my recently deleted folder anymore (yeah I should have kept it)..

    But the 2nd step isn't referring at all to the "NP List" item that shows up in progress after getting the playlist, does it? If so, then I guess I should pay attention next time to see if it's really when THAT is done to see if that was when I see it change.

    If _not_, it seems like maybe there should be some indication in the UI that there's another process happening that MIGHT change data that you see.

    Yes, that is what I'm referring to. After the "playlist" job completes there is another job started called "remote" with OUTPUT=NP List. Once that job completes the displayed NPL list will be refreshed with updated data, so Episode information that was missing will show up and in some cases episode information might change if the RPC data is different than the XML/local data. (Also note that you won't be able to play/delete shows shown in table until that "remote" job completes).

    I had kmttg running a few months back, but screwed it up updating to "j" version. I can't find it in task manager or under add/remove programs.
    attempted "q" version but doesn't work.
    how do I uninstall to start afresh?

    all I want to do is create an occasional vcr functionality with subtitles and ability to make dvd videos. which download would help me do that?
