    Excellent! That did the trick. I found the file, deleted it and that fixed the problem. Thank you very much for your help. I LOVE this program!

    New version just released with quite a few enhancements and fixes.

    Relevant to series 4 and later units there's now a Use RPC to get NPL when possible config option under Program Options which when enabled gets NPL in 1 shot rather than the usual 2 step process.

    Consult release_notes Wiki for all the details.

    moyekj - any chance you can save the sort order in these settings?

    Haven't figured out how using JXTable that is Java 1.5 compatible.

    Just installed vlp0m (on a MiniMac server, against my Roamio) and LOVE it! THANK YOU as usual :)

    I have noticed one small issue. When the Use RPC to get NPL is on kmttg attempts to download a program before it has finished recording. It makes several attempts to download, each one resulting in a 403 error, before it gives up. This repeats with each iteration of the NPL until the program has finished recording. After that, the download and all the other steps complete normally.

    Not a serious bug. Anyone else seen this?

    Good catch. I've fixed that for next release.

    I love the new todo list export into .csv format (perfect for excel).

    I cobbled together an excel spreadsheet to sort and scan an exported todo list looking for overlapping recordings on the same channel when extra time is added for shows in a season pass. These sometimes cause problems on my roamio. To be safe, I now scan for these and then adjust the extra record time in kmttg.

    This excel sheet can handle about 400 entries max (to fit in a zip upload). Note, this sheet has vbs macros that will need to be enabled for it to work.

    Last couple of days pushes haven't been going through for me either, so I looked into finding alternate ways to list pending pushes and found a "downloadSearch" RPC function which has the information needed. My guess is it should also cover Amazon and other types of internet downloads as well, but I'm focused on pyTivo pushes for now. I'm looking into making use of it for next release.
    Checking my last couple of pushes they just sit on the Mind server with state="scheduled" but never seem to get pushed through. I also see older pushes that didn't work with following properties (among others):
    Code:
             "state": "cancelled",
             "cancellationSource": "mind",
             "cancellationReason": "maxRetriesExceeded"

    I know you say that the series ID is missing with this method... But I also see that the episode number is missing for _some_ shows. (Independent Lens is the one example I see for sure at the moment.) Other shows do have episode numbers.

    Is series ID and episode # somehow related, or is this maybe an issue that can be fixed?

    No, there's no relation. The RPC data does not have series ID data period, for any episodic show.

    For shows that are missing episode information using RPC check the HDUI on the TiVo - I think you will find the information is missing there as I think it's using the same data source. So far NPL episode information has been pretty complete for me using RPC, but I do notice sometimes ToDo list doesn't always have episode information available.

    As long as you're looking at the RPC for NPL code, I have also noticed that some shows appear to be listed multiple times. This seems to happen if (for example) a show matches a season pass and multiple wish lists. Got one Batman movie showing up as three recordings because it is action-adventure, Batman and has George Clooney in it. My Roamio is relatively new, and I'm not yet used to recording six shows at once, so I am not sure if it actually making three recordings or just listing the same one three times in the NPL feed.... but perhaps some uniqueness can be applied to this?

    keep it up!

    I am having a problem with v1p0m that could be user error/configuration but, I think it is a bug. With the new qsfix directory, the series folder is not being created for the output file. So, the qsfix file is created in the root directory (e.g., c:\temp and not c:\temp\series). The qsfix step completes but, all other steps fail due to not finding the expected file in the series folder. Reverting back to v1p0l resolves the issue.

    The RPC data retrieval starts at top level and traverses into folders. I suspect what is happening is the same show being categorized into 2 or more folders on the TiVo. I'll have to try and find a way to retrieve NPL as a flat set of data instead of doing folder traversal which would avoid the problem. Short of that I'll have to check for uniqueness in code which would be messier.

    Thanks for reporting. The qsfix dir was a request I wasn't too fond on implementing because of scenarios like this. I'll have to see if it's easy to fix else just pull that feature out again.

    After exploring a little I did indeed find a way to get a flat list instead of having to parse through folders. This will actually make things a lot cleaner and simpler and I think will avoid the problem you are seeing and should be part of next release. Given there's already several bug fixes I'm working on there will probably be a new release in next few days.

    This was a can of worms to try and deal with and it's too much work to try and get it working, so for next release I've already pulled the qsfix directory option.

    I'm about to receive a Roamio pro and a mini to replace two premiere units. I plan on downloading kmttg to see if it will do the following for me.

    1) transfer season passes from both premieres to the Roamio.
    2) transfer select recordings from premieres to Roamio.
    3) transfer wishlists.

    Anything else I should do? Cam kmttg transfer my wishlists?

    1) Yes.
    2) Use MRV for that
    3) Auto record wishlists will transfer along with season passes. Non auto record wishlists are not accessible by kmttg so won't transfer. (So if you like you can temporarily turn them into auto record wishlists before transferring season passes to get around that issue).

    Thanks for looking into it. I like the idea because I go back and forth between drives to improve I/O performance. Sounds like, not worth the work.
