    Yup, that's the one. The Windows version that comes with kmttg tool package is 0.9.5. If someone can test out the Mac version there and verify it works I can include it in Mac tools package.

    I am wondering if someone could help me with a minor issue I've been having as well as a question that I have.

    Issue - I am sure other have experienced this. Unfortunately, I have not had much luck in finding it on the forums (but that doesn't mean it isn't there). What happens, on occasion, is a download will just stop in the middle of a file. When I try to download it again, it stops in the same place.

    As an example SVU was just on and the file size is 12.13 GB. When it downloads, it stops at a little over 7 GB. Just for kicks, I tried the same file with Tivo Desktop, and it stopped downloading at the same place. I am guessing is that the file is some how corrupted, and there is no resolution, but I figure I would ask.

    I have tried downloading in TS and PS to see if it would make a difference, and it didn't seem to matter.

    Question - I generally download in TS format, however the metadata files end up with .mpg.txt in the file name. I manually change them to .ts.txt and all is well. Is there a way to tell KMTTG to output the files in .ts.txt.

    As always, thanks for the help.

    That issue is fixed in next release.

    The failed download issue has no solution as it's a TiVo problem. If you have more than 1 TiVo you can MRV resume to another unit and then download that partial and use software such as VRD to combine 2 partials together.

    I completely agree that it is a TiVo problem. The funny thing is when I asked them, they like to blame Microsoft. I'm a little unclear as to your suggestion. I do have 2 TiVo boxes. Are you suggesting to transfer the program to my other TiVo box (expecting it to bomb at the 7 GB point), then expecting it to allow me to resume downloading and it will download the remainder of the file (except it will have 2 files on the Tivo)?

    I do have VRD, so I could combine them if need be.

    The 2 box workaround:
    * Figure out the exact point where the download is failing by watching the partial download on your PC and jumping to the end of it.
    * On the TiVo that has the recording FF to that point and then say 5-10 seconds beyond it and then pause and exit to set the pause point.
    * On 2nd TiVo now start MRV resume of the show such that you have 2nd partial on that TiVo.
    * Once download completes you can now download the 2nd partial from the 2nd TiVo. Just remember 1st to rename the 1st partial download so you don't overwrite it when downloading the 2nd.

    i.e. The idea is to set the pause point to just beyond the glitch that is causing download to fail and then transfer from that point on to another TiVo. Then assuming there aren't any more glitches you should be able to transfer that 2nd partial to your PC and then merge it back together with the 1st partial.

    Im geting the two error codes

    curl: (18) transfer closed with outstanding read data remaining

    and Exit code: 18

    Im using V1p0g

    The only time it seems to work is when I delete KMTTG reboot my mac book pro and then it works for one show download and then stops in the middle of any additional downloads I try

    I have also tried downloading with Java, that didnt make a difference. Even after updating to the latest version of Java runtime

    The other error that I get is premature EOF

    Exit code: 0

    End of File

    Too bad because this worked great on the PC, cant seem to get it to work consistently on my Mac book quite yet.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions. Also using pytivoX to send videos to Tivo and that works pretty well.

    Exit code 18 = Partial file. Only a part of the file was transfered.

    Sounds to me like an issue writing the file to output destination perhaps due to lack of space. If transfer stops right around 2GB then it's likely a file system limitation. What kind of partition is the output going to? Is it an external USB drive? Have you checked disk space there? Also check for other things such as firewall or anti-virus software.

    1. I have 26 GB available
    2. firewall is set to allow all incoming connections
    3. 1 out of 15 times it works for no reason that I can tell
    4. I know that when the status meter was silver in color it worked and other times it is blue in color (dont remember if it ever worked when blue, whats the difference?

    thanks again for any help/suggestions!

    Don't know. Try downloading with web browser to same location to see what happens. If it works with your PC looks like some kind of issue with the Mac. If you're using wireless networking then try hard wiring instead.

    Eh, not on a Mac.

    It could also be tivodecode.

    If you have combined download/decrypt option enabled then turn that off. Also make sure you don't have TS downloads turned on since tivodecode doesn't work properly for TS downloads. Unless you post full commands being run and error messages to get a better idea of exactly how you're downloading it's hard to keep guessing what may help.

    Having a problem during the comskip job apparently. No idea what it means. It has been running for 2:38:15 - 1 hour movie. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Looks to me like "QS Fix" step with ProjectX is also failing:
    No demux output files found
    demux failed


    Is the mpg from a TiVo download or somewhere else? If TiVo download is it from a Roamio unit and what container (TS or PS)?

    It is a tivo download from a Premiere. As for container I am not sure what you mean. Could you elaborate?

    If you are talking about encoding profile I was using the ff_tivo_hd

    In config, the picture shows a square around the option, OFF= it downloads in PS format, ON= TS.

    Have now also tried to download various videos through web interface. Seems to also stop/time out about 2/3 of the way in. Hopefully this can help pinpoint the problem

    If it stops at the same point, there may be glitches in the recording. Compare the downloaded file to the Tivo's at where it stopped.
