    The "Encoding Profile" selection applies to "encode" task. If you just want mpeg2 file then all you need to do is enable "decrypt" task and nothing else.

    Does anyone have advice on what encoding format would be the best choice if I plan to edit using iMovie?

    And what is the difference between these three formatting options:
    hb_appletv
    hb_appletv2
    hb_appletv2_srt

    Thanks!
    Dave

    Have any idea what is causing this? Failing trying to get NP list on one TivoHD. However the NP list is there??

    Series 3 units don't support RPC, but looks like you turned on "Enable iPad style communications with this TiVo" for your TiVo HD under config->Tivos. Turn that off for your TiVo HD.

    New question about kmttg. I have decoded some tivo recordings and tested them on my Mac comouter. The audio and video play fine.

    I am however having problems with these same files when trying to play them using my WD Live TV Streaming Media Player. The video is okay but there is no sound.

    I have tried to adjust my audio settings on the media player but nothing seems to bring the audio.

    Although it probably is not something that is the fault of kmttg, I am just covering all bases in trying to troubleshoot the audio problem.

    anyone run into something like this?

    It's WD issue apparently not properly handling AC3 audio in mpeg2 container. Some related threads:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=505804

    http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-TV-Li...io-works-in-mkv/m-p/80577/highlight/true#M683

    Perhaps a remux to MKV container may work. You can remux using ffmpeg and can do it within kmttg if you wish. Create a file under kmttg "encode" folder called ff_mkv_remux.enc with following contents:
    Code:
    <description>
    mkv remux - Copy video and audio into mkv container
    
    <command>
    FFMPEG -y -i INPUT -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f matroska OUTPUT
    
    <extension>
    mkv
    
    Then start kmttg and from FILES tab add the .mpg file WD won't play. Enable only the "encode" task and set Encoding Profile to "ff_mkv_remux" and click Start. This should create a .mkv file which you can then try with WD Live. If that works, then part of your kmttg flow you can enable "encode" task with above profile in addition to the "decrypt".

    If that still doesn't work then a lousy option would be to re-encode at least the audio to 2 channel AAC, but that's not a great option.

    Is there a way to edit the bitrate settings for any of the encoding profiles? I tried encoding a video after converting from a .tivo file, and the video had that horizontal-pixelation-lining (interlacing?), which I've read might mean the bitrate is too low for the video....

    Sure. Every encoding profile comes from associated .enc file in the kmttg "encode" folder. So if you want to create your own, start with a copy of an existing one and give it a different name and then edit the file to suit your preferences. Then use File-Refresh Encoding Profiles in kmttg or re-start kmttg and it will list your encoding name in the list.

    Low bitrate doesn't lead to interlaced look however so I don't think that's your problem. Various players have deinterlace related settings. VLC for example has deinterlace filters, so you might want to look at settings of player you are using.

    I know this is most likely a TiVo problem but since this a forum where we TTG, thought I'd ask here first.

    Has anyone been experiencing TS downloads where VRD QSF fails and the downloaded TiVo file shows as having no video? i.e. if you try to open the downloaded .TiVo file w/VRD it won't open the file complaining of no video stream, if you have kmttg setup to QSF with VRD QSF it fails for no video and if you have TiVo Desktop installed and download using Transport Stream, Windows Media wont play video, showing and playing audio only after a LONG wait for the file to load. This has happened for a few PBS recordings I have on both the Roamio and Premiere and doesn't matter if I transfer them between my TiVo's (Roamio Basic and Premiere) and download from either one. PS (Program Stream) download of the same episodes have no issues and NO, they're not H.264 recordings, they're MPEG2.

    MediaInfo shows this (unusual info) for the bad TS .TiVo files downloaded;
    Video
    Encryption : Encrypted

    Audio
    Encryption : Encrypted

    Normally it will show Encrypted for the Audio, but not the Video.

    Color me Puzzled.

    Just tried again for the 3rd time to QSF one of those .TiVo files and got an mpeg stream error Audio ring buffer overflow -AC3 from VRD.

    P.S. Latest kmttg v1p0p and VRD v4.21.6.674

    It appears Tivo has a certificate error again at least for me. Started yesterday

    Getting "Received fatal alert: certificate_expired" when attempting to pull list of shows.

    Is there anything that can be done to correct or is this a Tivo issue only?

    I am using an older version of kmttg v1p01c. Could this be a java version issue? I am on a MAC running mavericks.

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm still not having any luck finding a format that iMovie will import. The closest I've reached is a .m4v, but only the audio imports--video is completely black. Any idea what I should try for that application?

    No, I know nothing about iMovie, but brief Google search seems to imply it was more designed for Camcorder captures as input and has limited input format support.

    Moyekj, I want to try to give your suggestion a go but have to admit that I am already lost from the first step.

    You say: Create a file under kmttg "encode" folder called ff_mkv_remux.enc with following contents:
    Code:
    <description>
    mkv remux - Copy video and audio into mkv container
    
    <command>
    FFMPEG -y -i INPUT -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f matroska OUTPUT
    
    <extension>
    mkv
    
    :

    How do I create that file? I am assuming once I figure out how to create that file that it will reside in the kmttg Encode folder?

    I think I understand the later part of your suggestion about starting kmttg from File tab and adding the mpg file. Will test if I am right when I accomplish the first part. ;C )


    Then start kmttg and from FILES tab add the .mpg file WD won't play. Enable only the "encode" task and set Encoding Profile to "ff_mkv_remux" and click Start. This should create a .mkv file which you can then try with WD Live. If that works, then part of your kmttg flow you can enable "encode" task with above profile in addition to the "decrypt".

    If that still doesn't work then a lousy option would be to re-encode at least the audio to 2 channel AAC, but that's not a great option.[/QUOTE]

    Its quite easy to create this file with a text editor like notepad in Windows.

    View attachment ff_mkv_remux.enc.txt

    Here it is, just right click the above and choose save and name it as above but without the ".txt"

    So, I went ahead and created the file, put it in the Encode folder.

    I went ahead and ran another TiVo recording through kmttg with the settings:
    Decrypt
    Encode using the profile I created

    I then tried to play that file on the WD TV Live SMP and unfortunately when I tried to play it the screen just went to black and there is just a spinning orange arrow.

    So in addition to no audio, I now have no video when playing.
