    Can --stik "Movie" be changed to --stik "Short Film" in AtomicParsley? In iTunes, "Movie" gets put into Home Videos and "Short Film" gets put into Movies. The "" have to be used.

    Thanks

    First I just want to say that the new Search function is AMAZING. As if KMTTG wasn't already incredibly useful, it literally just skyrocketed for me.

    Quick thoughts:

    A handy feature within Search might be the bit that says the episode number. Right now if you search for "friends" and go to the "series - Friends" directory it might say "Friends - Title". But if you were in the normal browse mode and in the Friends directory it would say something like "Friends - Title - [Ep 001]", which I find more useful.

    As an aside, I never really understood why it's "Ep 001" instead of "Ep S01E01", but I'm sure that's a TiVo issue and not a KMTTG one.

    Maybe not a big deal for most people, but in Search++ a way to filter out TV-MA would be cool -- or select only TV-MA if that's your thing ;)


    On a completely different non-search related note: one bug I've noticed lately (and maybe it's always been there?) is that sometimes I'm in folder view, and then I enter a folder and delete a recording, and instead of it just disappearing from the folder list, KMTTG jumps back to root. That scared the heck out of me the first few times, because at first glance it looks like I've accidentally deleted the entire folder, but then I scroll down and find it just fine, with the deleted recording gone just like it's supposed to be.

    Anyway, that was like that for me with the previous version I was on before I just updated to the new one, and it's happening again in this version as well. Hope this helps.

    Since the last Roamio update I have noticed a change in kmttg display behavior. kmttg is no longer displaying the same folders as the Roamio. I'll elaborate.

    I record a series, NCIS for instance. I use kmttg to transfer off an episode, edit out commercials, encode to mp4 and push a copy back. I delete the much larger original file with the commercials. Roamio puts the original recordings and the recoded ones in separate folders. Kmttg shows them in the same folder.

    Was this different for you prior to the Roamio update? I ask because I'm pretty sure it has always been like this and I see the exact same behavior with my THD. I just tested it.

    kmttg creates folders based on matching titles. The TiVo groups on matching seriesIds. A pushed recording gets a different seriesId that is apparently made up by the mind server. A pulled recording gets the actual seriesId (assuming it is in the metadata) and will group on the TiVo with the original recordings).

    You may be right, I might have just NOTICED it since the last update. Was there a reason kmttg groups differently than the Tivo?

    I'm having no success trying to transfer Season Passes from my old S3 to a new Roamio.

    I get the following error message when I try to load the saved SP data from the old S3 into the new Roamio.

    Loading SP data from file: C:\Program Files (x86)\kmttg_v0p8i\Living Room.sp
    jsonToTableData - JSONObject["timeOfDayLocal"] not found.
    jsonToTableData - JSONObject["timeOfDayLocal"] not found.
    jsonToTableData - JSONObject["timeOfDayLocal"] not found.
    jsonToTableData - JSONObject["timeOfDayLocal"] not found.

    Not sure what's wrong, can anybody help?

    I don't have series 3 unit active anymore to test. If you post your .sp file here or PM me a link to it I can look into it.

    As lpwcomp said, kmttg has always grouped by main title name. seriesID is not a reliable way to group like shows as is apparent on TiVo itself.

    I've only had time to test it on one show so far, But so far so good. The custom command executed properly with the new beta you supplied.

    Have you considered adding "ts = on" (minus the quotes) to the server settings of pyTivo and doing a pull instead of a push? Unless, of course, you prefer the current TiVo grouping.

    I'm getting this on my TiVO app for the Roamio guide. However, guides for other TiVOs (Premiere and HD) are working fine. Separate server for guides for the Roamio?

    I got your PM with .sp file. It looks like you have a few repeat manual record SPs and looks like for series 3 units the "timeOfDayLocal" JSON parameter which is required and defines the recording times is missing. Therefore those repeat manual recordings cannot be copied. You should be able to copy the other SPs though.

    Yes the bug is if you delete top most entry inside a folder kmttg would jump out of folder even if it is not last item in folder. Next release has a fix for that issue. If not last item in a folder then kmttg will now select the entry below the one being deleted and keep you in that folder.

    None of my TiVos can connect to the server at this time. And the Android app on my phone can only get guide data for the THD. The two Premieres give me a message that "The middlemind connection is currently down."

    Thank you for your prompt reply. You were right, there were four repeat manual recordings that were not copied. I was able to copy the rest of the SPs. The order of the SPs was different than what was on the S3 but that's OK since with the 4 tuner Roamio I was going to change them anyway. I got all SPs including wishlists!

    Great program! Thanks!

    Is there a setting to bypass VideoReDo's QS Fix and use the Project X one instead?

    I'm still getting sync issues, and I'd like to try another option.

    In kmttg config VideoRedo tab just add a - character at the end of the path to your VRD installation to make it invalid to kmttg. If VRD QS Fix is not fixing it then I doubt projectX will either, but it's worth a shot.

    Great, thanks. I figure it can't hurt to try :)

    Any idea why TiVo MPEG-2 files have sync issues that need to be corrected in the first place? It seems to me that other things that use MPEG-2, like the VOBs on a DVD for instance, don't have any sync problems. How does the TiVo manage to play back the raw file fine, but MPC/VLC/etc can't? Seems so strange.
