    I just realized I use this awesome program and don't even think about it since it works so well. Just wanted to say THANK YOU for developing this and keeping the support up. Happy Holidays.

    I have a Roamio+ and 2 Minis. I have entered the minis in kmttg so I can push a URL to them or use the remote. However, for most proposes, they seem to me to be no-ops as far as kmttg functionality is concerned. However, kmttg trays them like equals. This is especially annoying when I have to select the Roamio from a pulldown menu when it is really the only possible choice.

    So, my request. Some means of either setting the TiVo device type, or setting a device's priority in kmttg. I suppose this would be managed on the Configuration->Tivos pane. Since the TiVos can be auto discovered, I guess there would have to be a means to mark a discovered device, or edit the device list.

    Thanks for a great, fun, and endlessly cool tool.

    The Remote tabs "remember" the last TiVo selection when you close kmttg and start it at a later time. So if you leave selection on your Roamio+ it should come back to it next time. Other tip is if you edit config.ini file directly and put your Roamio+ 1st in the list then it will always be the 1st TiVo in NPL tab order as well as Remote cyclic order.

    kmttg thinks my Roamio is named "DVR-DD84" (I think that's part of the service #). My other Tivos see it as "Roamio" (clever, I know). I have quit & relaunched of course, and even deleted it from kmttg's prefs & relaunched, it came back with the same name.

    I even tried renaming it on Tivo's servers to a longer name, and I do see that longer name ("Roamioupdate") after entering the Roamio on the Premiere 4.. that was a few days ago that I renamed it.

    Is there any way to get kmttg to recognize the 'real' name of this Tivo? Otherwise, everthing else is fine, and the increased download speeds from this even from the Premiere 4 are awesome.. (Though tangentially, I have realized that some glitches in programs were not in the original cable signal, and my Tivos are right on top of each other! In other words, I'm recording a lot of the same shows on both, and a few times had a show fail to download from one tivo due to a glitch but download from the other.) Since I've made sure the Roamio is unlikely to die soon, I'll clean off & sell my P4 at some point.

    I'll try that, but I'm curious why other tivos saw the name change & kmttg doesn't.

    Upon name change the old name is still advertised along with new name - a long standing TiVo bug I think. Rebooting should fix that.

    I am getting an odd error message from kmttg. When it attempts to delete a recording after downloading it, it cannot delete and gives the message 'recordingid not available for this entry'

    Only happens on the roamio, deleting from the Premiere works as normal. I tried manually deleting the recording as well, get the same message.

    Suggestions?

    You can't delete just 1 particular show on the Roamio or any/all shows? Make sure when after Refresh button that the 2nd "remote" job that runs after NPL retrieval is finished before attempting to delete.

    Tried several and none would delete. Both jobs are complete and have tried refreshing several times. There is a network problem going on too as the Roamio is displaying a C133 error now. Not sure what is up.

    Try some of the Remote functions to see if RPC functionality is working at all for your Roamio. If you are getting C133 then "Search" and "Guide" probably will fail as well, but most other tabs should work. I don't recall if C133 error affects deleting shows on TiVo, but it might.

    I've started having a strange problem with KMTTG. When I open the program, it opens minimized and will not open up or maximize. I've tried downloading and reinstalling the program as well as uninstalling java, rebooting and then reinstalling java, all with no change. The program seems to be running, because it popped up the box asking about the MAK and installing the tools when I re-setup KMTTG.
    Any suggestions?

    Nope! Also tried right-clicking on it, double-clicking, etc. I'm flummoxed.

    You need to enable "QS Fix" task along with any other tasks you are using.

    1st make sure java is not running in task manager. Kill it if necessary. Next click on "Documents" shortcut, then go to 1 level up from there and remove ".kmttg_settings" file. This is the file that remembers size & position info so maybe there's some odd settings there. Then start kmttg and see if problem is fixed.

    As always, this is a wonderful program. Thank you for your efforts!

    Even so, there's a nit I'd like to pick. I'd like to have a way to turn back on special characters in filenames. I record shows that always -- ALWAYS -- have any of apostrophes, semicolons, or question-marks in them (How It's Made - an apostrophe in the title, semicolons after each item that they discuss -- such as "Custom knee braces; Air Conditioners; Window Films; Motorcycle Exhaust Systems"), Through the Wormhole (every episode title is a question and therefore ends in a question mark, as in "Can we survive the death of the Sun?")

    So I would vote for a way to re-enable allowing special characters and/or punctuation in file names again.
