    Weird problem.

    I've been transferring and burning to DVD "Cedar Cove" on the Hallmark channel for my mom who doesn't get the channel. It went fine until last night's episode. kmttg showed the program length was 1 hour, and the .tivo file shows it as 1 hour. But after kmttg decoded it, it was 53:10. I thought it might be a glitch in the recording, so I re-recorded a later airing, but the same error -- 53:10. This is version v0p94r. I was able to decrypt in VideoReDo, but I just wondered if something I did created this error.

    What program is showing it as 53 minutes? Did you run QS Fix on it to fix timestamp errors?
    (Also you should really upgrade to more recent kmttg version where it is now much easier to update to latest version).

    Windows Explorer, VR Player, VideoRedo. In VideoRedo it cuts off in the final act.

    Yes, but I also looked at the file pre-QS Fix, and it's the same either way.

    I will.

    If added to an account with an active TiVo in good standing, it should qualify for MSD and thus get a $9.95/mo rate.

    One more thing to try if you are downloading from a series 4 unit is toggle the "Download TiVo Files in Transport Stream format" config->Program Options setting and try download again.

    The Windows command to select everything in a list is Ctrl-A. Unfortunately, this is also the keyboard shortcut to clear the message window in kmttg.

    moyekj - Any chance you can change the keyboard shortcut to clear the message window or maybe add a "right-click-select-all" shortcut?

    I use Ctrl-A regularly when selecting files in the files window and I inadvertently clear the message window.

    I use Ctrl-A to select all files as well and now that is not working for me as well. An alternative is to use shift-End to select from the current to the end.

    I'll change to Ctrl-L for next release. But yes the one I use is the shift+click to select multiple contiguous entries, or ctrl+click for non-contiguous entries.

    Ctrl-Shift + click will select/unselect items without clearing the current selections.
    Shift-Home is reverse of Shift-End, to select from current to the top.
    Shift-PgUp/PgDn for window lengths-worth selecting.

    Just to name a few shortcuts.

    Couple of things:
    I only found out about the keyboard shortcuts recently (when I figured out that you could delete shows with kmttg too).

    But the help says delete, whereas it's really ^H that deletes a file. The delete key on a Mac (which is ASCII 127 IIRC) doesn't actually delete a file.

    Also, maybe I'm missing something simple, but with the advanced naming, is there a way I can use originalAirDate if it exists, but if not, use the record date (i.e. month, day year)?

    I can conditionalize originalAirDate, but I don't want TWO dates to end up in the name.

    Delete key (not backspace key which is different) works for me on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and linux CentOS 5.4, so as usual MacOS must have decided to do things differently.

    For your naming question no I can't think of a way to do it since it would need "else" logic implementation in addition to the current "if" logic.

    I just tried to see if I could Drag-and-Drop files into the Files tab of KMTTG, can't.

    OK, so I am new here.

    I am trying to install kmttg with no luck. I've been reading through the posts for a while and I am at a lost, so I thought I would ask.

    I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I downloaded and extracted the program to C driver, installed Java 7 32 bit, associated the kmttg.jar file to the 32 bit javaaw.exe

    I click and nothing happens. I made java run as admin and still nothing.

    Any suggestions?

    See post starting here for a user that was having similar troubles:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=9749092#post9749092

    (For proper/expected Java installation Windows automatically adds java to PATH and associates .jar with javaw.exe so double click on kmttg.jar is all that is needed.)

    Then maybe I'm wrong, maybe it really IS sending backspace. Could you work with both, and then I could see if that's the issue?

    As for the other -- can you take that as an enhancement request? Would a few bucks make it more likely to be implemented?

    it appears that the Apple keyboard has no separate "DEL key. Fn+backspace supposedly works as DEL.

    I've added Backspace key support for next release. The other request is a lot more complicated and will have to look into it down the road.

    A quick update and a thank you.
    I installed the full version of VideoRedo and just enabling the QSfix was enough to fix the glitches we were getting.

    So thank you for your fine and continuing effort. If you have PayPal or something similar I'll gladly send some money your way.

    Thanks again.

    I have many archived .TiVo files on a fileserver, that don't show captions when I transfer them back to my Tivo. They are in .ps containers. I'm trying to come up with a one-step process to add the captions back in. I can use kmttg to decrypt the files (by invoking tivodecode), and extract the captions to an .srt file (by invoking ccextractor); I'd like to also have it encode the files with the captions burnt in (hardcoded) so they'll display when I transfer the files back to my Tivo.

    I've tried making an encoding profile for both handbrake and ffmpeg that will burn the captions back, but the syntax is driving me bonkers - I keep getting error messages.

    Are there any example profiles out there that illustrate burning captions with either ffmpeg or handbrake?

    Thanks!
