    FYI. Can confirm RPC Remote functionality works fine with Roamio Plus and managed to copy all my season passes from Premiere & Elite using kmttg (including series without current airings and my auto record wishlists). Initial TTG tests showed ~ 120 Mbps average download speed via Gigabit ethernet connection.

    I can confirm much the same and add that pytivo pushes to the Roamio are working fine.

    However, the base Roamio did not get the Gbit Ethernet connection advertised by Tivo. It is 100Mbit only like the older Premiere. I was pretty bummed about that.

    I made my own profile that handbrake encodes to H.264 constant quality. Of importance to me is the audio/video sync of the encoded product. I found that handbrakecli produces the best result for me here. Included in this profile is the --decomb filter option, which acts as a deinterlacer.

    # Description (single line, keep short)
    <description>
    Handbrake Optimized constant quality H.264

    # Encode command or script (single line)
    # Known keywords: FFMPEG, MENCODER, HANDBRAKE, PERL, INPUT, OUTPUT, PWD, CPU_CORES, SRTFILE
    <command>
    HANDBRAKE -i INPUT -o OUTPUT -4 -O -e x264 -q 20.0 -a 1,1 -E faac,copy:ac3 -B 160,160 -6 dpl2,auto -R Auto,Auto -D 0.0,0.0 -f mp4 --detelecine --decomb --loose-anamorphic -m -x b-adapt=2:rc-lookahead=50

    # Encoded output file extension
    <extension>
    m4v

    It gets files from my TivoHD down to about 50% of their MPEG-2 sizes with no appreciable drop in quality.

    How does kmttg send season passes from one tivo to another?

    Hey moyekj-

    As people are upgrading to the Roamio, I am wondering if it is possible to add the ability export the channel list in the 'Guide' section of kmttg to a csv or text file (or something similar)?
    I could see this being handy to quickly generating a list of selected channels on say someone's Premiere and then using it as a guide to select the channels on a new Roamio (or any new tivo for the matter).
    Anyways, just an idea that may have already been addressed previously.

    Thanks.

    See the documentation:
    http://sourceforge.net/p/kmttg/wiki/remote_control/
    In short:
    * save Season Passes for your other TiVos using the Save button
    * switch to destination TiVo (Roamio) and use Load button to load the previously saved SPs
    * Then select 1 or more SPs in the table and press the Copy button
    * Repeat for any number of saved SPs you have
    * SP priority is determined by the order in which you do the copies

    Thx. for response. Sorry, I was unclear. KMTGG has a pulldown menu of conversion profiles to re-format the *.tivo files such as "ff droid" with a number of others, so I was wondering which one should I use to give optimal hd and importantly, audio playback? Quality is most important, with hd space not an issue. Thanks!!

    The answer to your question is NONE of the profiles. Do not recode at all to maintain optimum quality at the expense of hard drive space.

    Just download with the decode option and kmttg will store the file as a .mpg file in the native resolution and audio quality as received from the Tivo.

    Ok, but one last quickie..Does KMTGG not require you to select an encoding option on the pull down? Thanks again for your wisdom :).

    Just select download, metadata, decode
    Do not select encode and it doesn't do it

    No, download, decrypt and recode are each separate operations. The pull down list is for the recode operation only.

    ok, thanks! So, I am just selecting the shows, checking "metadata," but not "decrypt" or "encode", then hitting enter? Just concerned b/c in the computer replay of hd shows, the audio was so low on a high qual tv.

    you DO want to select decrypt. That tells kmttg to change from a protected .TiVo format to an unprotected standard .mpg format. The audio track will be stored exactly as recorded on the TiVo.

    After getting my Roamio Pro yesterday, I moved a premier xl to the basement and pulled another XL out of service. KMTTG shows four Tivo tabs when I have only two on the LAN. I have searched but cannot figure out how to refresh KMTTG to show only the two that are live on my LAN.

    Thanks,
    Jerold

    Edit: I guess I posted too soon. After some more digging I figured out how to delete the IP under the Tivo Tab in congfigure.

    I am experimenting with using transport streams for the first time and just wanted to get some clarifications on what to expect.

    I enabled "download tivo file in transport format, the "VideoRedu qsfix" and the "decrypt using videoredu" The resulting file is a mpeg-2 transport file with the extension .ts. Is this the correct extension? I would have thought it would have the same old mpeg extension.

    At present pytivo doesn't see the file because of the .ts extension. If this extension is correct then I assume I need to change the pytivo config to see and play it.

    Most of the time I am just sending it back to the tivo premiere, but sometimes I want to encode them for iPad play. Should I just be able to check the encode button and use my existing profile to convert them for my iPad?

    pyTivo does see .ts files, and yes, that's the "correct" extension.

    I decided to give transport streams a try as well. Running into a problem with the decode step using videoredo. I get an error message that videoredo cannot open the file and that my MAK may be wrong.

    I have the MAK entered in kmttg but cannot find a place to put it in Videoredo. I am currently running version 3.10.3.629 dated Nov 9, 2011.
