    That's ancient. There's a boatload of new stuff in latest version which you can get from link in my sig. Once you upgrade manually to latest version then future updates can be done via Help menu.

    Series 3 unit? If so it's probably a difference between local guide data and middlemind.tivo.com if you configured kmttg for your tivo.com login info. What does the TiVo UI show for episode information?

    Series 3 (652) shows the latter correct episode number in the playlist.

    Edit: That's odd. I just tried the same download again with the same version and the playlist and download are the same (3324). NM.

    So it's a case where middlemind.tivo.com data is different than local guide data. Usually the tivo.com data is more accurate & complete than the local guide data from my experience. If you disable your tivo.com login & password in kmttg it should fix that issue but then you will probably find a lot of missing episode data for other shows.

    Does anyone have an encoding profile that will encode an HD mpeg2 into a TiVo 2 basic quality mpeg2?

    Something like this should work.

    ff_dvd.enc
    Code:
    # Description (single line, keep short)
    <description>
    widescreen DVD
    
    # Encode command or script (single line)
    # Known keywords: FFMPEG, HANDBRAKE, MENCODER, PERL, INPUT, OUTPUT, PWD, CPU_CORES, SRTFILE
    <command>
    FFMPEG -y -i INPUT -target ntsc-dvd -aspect 16:9 -f dvd OUTPUT
    
    # Encoded output file extension
    <extension>
    mpeg

    Thanks. I'll try that the next time I need to push something I recorded on an HD channel to the remote TiVo 2. I usually record things that are going to be sent there on an SD channel but sometimes that is not possible.

    Did you ever figure this out? I'm getting the exact same error message with kmttg v1p0e:

    input video=eia-608: projectx only supports mpeg2 video

    Just curious if you ever figured it out.

    Looks like a problem properly identifying the video codec of the source program - it's treating the captions as the video stream. Do you have kmttg configured with "mediainfo cli" under config->Programs? If not that may be the problem. If on Windows you can update tools using Help->Update tools and then re-start kmttg and then it should be set to use "mediainfo cli".

    If you already setup with mediainfo setup then it's a bug in the video codec detection using mediainfo I'll have to look into.

    Is there anyway ito have a timeout in kmttg? I've started seeing VRD going to 100% (when it noremally writes out the mp4 file), just sit there for hours and never finish. I let them sit to see if they ever finish and got to 55 hours elapsed time, before I killed it.

    Can kmttg have a built in activity timer? If a step doesn't complete in, say, 9 hours, it kills it and aborts the activity? (With an appropriate red message in the log file, of course).

    Thanks so much for replying! I do have mediainfo CLI set in the Configure > Programs. I have tried version 0.7.62 (kmttg version), 0.7.64 (latest), and 0.7.56 (older version since I'm sure this was working a while ago) of mediainfo. They all give me the same error. I've attached a screenshot of what mediainfo gives me when I run it against the mpg file I'm trying to comskip.

    I dug around sourceforge and found v1p0c and it is working fine with comskip. Just wanted to let you know and also in case anyone else runs in to the "input video=eia-608: projectx only supports mpeg2 video" issue. I can't DM RedMan8 but hopefully he'll see this post in case he's still having the issue.

    If I install other programs which depend on the same underlying tools as kmttg, is it better practice to let the other program install its own copies, so that the installation won't clobber what kmttg has? So each program calls its own install of Atomic Parsley, etc? Or is it better to have one installation of everything in the toolbox and have all the programs share it?

    I haven't looked at the config files of the other program yet, so I haven't learned how it points to the other executables.

    The upside is that it's easier to keep everything updated if there is only one toolbox to keep updated, and it saves on hard disk space. One downside might be if a program ceases to function at a certain point because it depends on a particular version of a tool.

    I haven't tweaked the config file for the other program yet, but presumably there is some way to tell it what directories it should be looking at. (IIRC the installation program did not look for pre-existing installs.)

    I was also thinking about playing with the Windows GUIs of Handbrake or ffmpeg. It seems silly to install things multiple times.

    Mines does this also which is why I stopped manually editing my shows with VRD. It does the ad detect and I don't know how to proceed. I can save the video then close VRD and it takes off but something seems wrong with that process. Are there instructions for the VRD part of the process? What the script expects to happen?

    Do the latest versions of KMTTG still work with S2 TiVos? Or do I need to use an older version?

    Read the kmttg Wiki more carefully on that option. You're supposed to choose File->Save Project in VRD and then exit VRD, not save the video.

    Looking into this some more I think it is due to a bug in parsing "mediainfo" output. It's a pretty simple fix which will go in next release. In the meantime, if you want to try out the fix, you can download a zip file that contains kmttg.jar with the fix included from here.

    Thanks, I'll try that. Does it matter where I save it?

    Am I looking at the wrong Wiki, this is what I read for manual cuts and I don't see the step. I bolded the part that made me think I was to save the file but again, I had no idea where it was to be saved.

    In VRD, there are a few shortcuts. CTRL-S saves your video file. CTRL-P saves your project. Saving a project is not like saving your video, there will be a small .VPRJ file, which can be deleted later after ADCut.

    If you are going to use KMTTG's adcut via VRD, you should use CTRL-P, and save it in the original folder your video is in (or in a folder set in KMTTG), and exit VRD.
