I've now seen the behavior - twice - where a show isn't downloaded, but it appears that curl and kmttg think that all's fine and the program tries to do further operations on the truncated (I believe it's either zero-length or very small) file, which of course fail. I've only ever seen this happen when doing a batch of something like 5 or 7 shows all at once, and selecting all checkboxes except for metadata and encode. And I'm using VRD. Unfortunately, I don't have the truncated/zero length files to inspect and see whether there's a good indication of what went wrong when curl attempted to download. I also had a case this morning, while trying to reproduce this problem, where the downloads from the TiVo all worked, but when kmttg went to run adcut, it got this error: >> CUTTING COMMERCIALS IN I:\kmttg\CSI Crime Scene Investigation - Deep Fried and Minty Fresh_Thu_Feb_12.mpg ...
