    I am a newbie to KMTTG. I have a Roamio plus and a mini. I started a download from the plus (to a Win7 machine). I was not watching on the plus but my wife was watching on the mini. About ten minutes into the download the mini lost its connection. I stopped the download and had to power the mini off to get it to reconnect.

    Was I doing anything wrong?

    Thanks

    You might try downloading when nothing is running. Kick the jobs off right before you go to bed. My TiVo Premiere was a little slower than usual when I was downloading a program but no problems and I don't have a mini.

    I reported last week that a show cut off the mpeg download after 6 mins and I was unable to resume. One week later, same show, same channel, same time, same prob. The MPEG download does not go beyond that point in the MPEG.

    PTI on ESPN HD recorded fine and I can stream it fine using the tivo stream. However, the download simply stops after abot 6 minutes into the show.

    Any solutions how I might still be able to access the content?

    This is a TiVo server problem that has been covered several times in this thread. If you have series 3 unit you can use kmttg "resume downloads" option to retrieve missing portion of the show after setting the pause point past the bad/glitchy fail point. For series 4 and later "resume downloads" doesn't work and is disabled in kmttg for those units. If you have more than 1 TiVo you can use the 2 box workaround. Else only solution is to re-record the program and hope that the new recording downloads OK.

    I just downloaded the Thanksgiving "Big Bang Episode" without a hitch. Thanks.

    The TiVo server problem was nasty and annoying, but it did not affect transfers or even pushes, at least not for me. And the Android app seemed to run just fine. Not sure why it would have affected SP creation unless the guide data was in a confused state due to an interrupted data download or maybe the Roamio is even more dependent on the web than the Premiere.

    Hi

    I got TTG downloaded and connecting with my Virgin Media Tivo, it can see all my shows and gives me the options to encode, Ad Cut, decrypt Etc however EVERY show it says is "copy Protected" therfore I can do nothing with it. Is there something I can do to be able to get these shows off the Tivo into my Mac in a Video format I can then work with to put on my iPad?

    Many thanks for your hard work.

    Julian

    Copy Protected means you simply cannot copy.

    That would be at the discretion of your programming provider. If they supply everything as copy prohibited, then you will not be able to. Tivo respects the copy inhibit flags.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Did that without a problem. Downloads are very fast which is great. Now playing with the trial of videoredo for burning dvd's. So far using kmttg and videoredo has been fantastic.

    Perhaps there is a way to do this that I don't know or perhaps this is something you might consider. When I download the guide from my tivo, there seems no way to look at program listings before the present time. I occasionally (as last night) will set up something to record and get an unexpected result. It would be nice to see what the program guide had shown for the program. For example, last night I got 30 min of a 1 hr program for reasons I don't understand.

    Thanks for your program and all the work you do on it.

    Yeah... About that stuff with those shady Cable companies... I've had to stay on S2 TiVo's for the last year, because I moved 10 miles into one of these "No Copy" zones.

    Since the S4 and later supports streaming, can we not just ask the TiVo to send out a stream, and use ffmpeg, mencoder, or VLC or something to accept and save that stream, like any other stream?

    Nobody knows how to interpret the streams. AFAIK, they are encrypted between the iPad & Tivo for example.

    I have a question about copy protection though -- didn't kmttg used to show no copy icons for copy protected shows? I don't see those anymore, so sometimes inadvertently try to transfer a copy protected program (which doesn't work, of course).

    A Premiere or Roamio can stream to each other, copy protected or not.

    By request I changed it in last release to not use a copy protect icon so that the "expiration" icons are still shown. However a dark background is still used to indicate copy protected shows in the table. If you're not seeing that then perhaps that color doesn't work on Mac Java for some reason...

    In order for that to work, you'd have to figure out how to convince the sending TiVo that it was talking to another S4 or later TiVo or a Mini.

    Right. This is what I was thinking of. Can we not just stream to a PeeCee.

    Really, isn't this how folks on this forum figured out how technologies like Streambaby can work? Aren't the commands and protocols (API's) the same?

    I ask only because I don't know. Seems like folks know how to get it to work in one direction. Is there indeed something preventing it from working in the opposite direction?

    After seeing the YouTube player, I took a stab in the dark that the documented HME streaming method might work for video as well as audio. And it did. That's it, basically. We still have only a poor understanding of the video form of HME streaming (e.g. there's clearly a way to bypass the 1.1 GB limit, but we don't know what it is).

    Not at all. NPL streaming is something completely different from HME streaming.
