    I had tried it to schedule a recording for late night record, but it seemed to pick up the wrong time and get the next show of the same name instead, and only got partial also.

    I was more referring to errors even attempting to schedule, i.e. following response:
    "RPC error response: middlemindError"

    I'm getting above error for "SP" & "Record" buttons for various Remote tables and Season Passes "Copy" button but oddly not for Season Passes "Modify" button.

    I never tried it so don't if it ever worked for me, but it definitely doesn't work now.

    RPC error response: middlemindError
    Failed to schedule/modify recording for: 'Kind Hearts and Coronets'

    OK thanks for confirming. I've disabled the relevant Remote buttons for series 3 units in next release.
    It definitely used to work so something must have changed with middlemind.tivo.com.

    I seem to have discovered a different problem.

    Just installed v1p0c on my new computer. I have a TiVoHD. (I had never tried to use any of the features on kmttg's remote tab before, because I thought you needed a Premiere for those to work. So I can't say whether anything was working in the previous installations.)

    I enabled the Network remote functions. I can use the graphic remote (clicking the TiVo button, the select button, etc.) -- the TiVo HD shows up in the drop-down selector, and it all seems to work.

    However, on all the other tabs, the drop-down selector is empty, and clicking the REFRESH button results in the error "Cannot determine IP for TiVo named: null".

    (I discovered all this after having a problem with my physical remote skipping, and saying "yes" to 'permanently delete' when I meant to choose 'no'. :eek: )

    To use the other Remote tabs with series 3 units you have to provide your tivo.com login information under Configuration->Tivos tab (and may have to re-start kmttg after doing so).

    Oh, right. I haven't finished that part of the configuration yet.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    :eek:

    Edited to add: I also get:

    "RPC error response: middlemindError"

    Maybe I missed the discussion but what advantages do you get when using VideoRedo over tivodecode?

    Thanks

    It's still being developed and hence actually works better to keep things in sync...

    BUT

    It doesn't work on Mac.
    It costs A LOT compared to free tivodecode.

    I need to research if we can just use latest ffmpeg to cut commercials AND qsfix. Seems it has to have that functionality in there somewhere...

    So far sync hasn't been an issue but I've only been using it for a few days.
    One problem I'm having is glitches in the MPEG file during commercial breaks.
    Specifically on TNT HD and Bravo HD when doing local insertion there is a glitch in the MPEG that causes my third party transcoder to fail. I haven't tried turning on Ad detect/Ad Cut to see if that will remove the glitch point(s). I should try that.

    Thanks

    VideoRedo (with TiVoDirectShowFilter installed) can properly decrypt TS .TiVo files (including H.264). Plus with VideoRedo you get better QS Fix than ProjectX that also preserves captions, and you get a better visual editor for reviewing commercial cut points than the comskip editor.

    I've being using kmttg for a couple of weeks now and really like it.

    I've set it up with the VideoReDo support. All seemed to go well during the configuration, and running the first show through the process... except after the adscan step... it begins and seems to mark 2 commericals - then seems to just get stuck, and continues to run?

    see attached screenshots.

    That's as designed. Read the tooltip that comes up when you mouse over the "Use VideoRedo GUI to review detected commercials" option. With that option enabled kmttg starts VRD GUI showing the commercials that were detected and giving you a chance to review/correct them. Once satisfied in VRD choose File->Save Project and then exit VRD and then kmttg will proceed with subsequent tasks for that title.

    I couldn't find that setting?? When I set things up in the GUI all I found was (see screenshot)

    and I had that selected.. I'm running ver 4.21.2.662

    NEVERMIND.. I thought it was the GUI in VRD not GUI in kmttg ...

    found it... So Sorry! thanks for your patience.

    v1p0d version is now released containing mostly user-requested enhancements and some changes and fixes.
    If using v1p0b version or later remember you can update to latest version automatically from the Help menu.

    Consult release_notes for details.

    Can I use KMTTG with a deactivated Tivo?

    No. 99% of Tivo functions are disabled with a Tivo that is unsubscribed. Only viewing Live TV and recordings would work.

    Thanks for the quick response. As I suspected. My brother bought a used replacement Tivo via eBay instead of repairing a misbehaving Tivo, and now wants me to get some of his old recording off the deactivated Tivo. I've got to decide if I want to spend $12.95 on activation for about 30 GB of recordings. I'm going to call Tivo on Monday and see if they will have pity on me and let me activate it for a few hours.

    A one-time payment of $12.95 might be reasonable, but TiVo may want a one-year subscription commitment.
