    I think the key is the "stationId" setting inside the "channel" JSON. If you are just changing the channel number and callSign that won't work. In your examples above, note the "stationId" is different. So the challenge would be to find the corresponding stationId for each channel which you would have to update along with the other info. You may be able to use kmttg "Guide" tab for each relevant channel and look at JSON info for a table entry for each channel to get that information (using the 'j' bindkey in kmttg).

    No luck. Got stuck at 23% again with the different version. However, it made it past that, and instead got stuck at 40% (for a LONG time - like almost two hours). It hasn't actually died, it's just stuck at 40% as I type this.

    I installed the ffmpeg you suggested. Put it in another directory, changed the config. Even quit and restarted kmttg before I tried again. Gets stuck in the same place.

    Current versions of WinZip will do that. That's what I use.

    Yes, that worked. I tried just changing the StationId without changing the other fields and that appears to at least get the season pass to copy and seems to be correct. Finding each new stationID will be a lot easier then starting every season pass over again on the TiVo. Another time saver for kmttg. Awesome and thanks for the continued support!

    +1 - While I don't need that info, it's great to have in my back pocket for sure!

    If you've never tried VideoRedo, that would be a real fix for the problem in conjunction with kmttg. ProjectX is free and works in many cases, but VideoRedo is by far the superior solution. Note that you can get a fully functional free trial version of VideoRedo to try before you buy and the $50 VideoRedo Plus version is all you need for mpeg2 QS Fix + commercial cutting capabilities (though I personally would recommend the $100 VideoRedo TVSuite). Well worth every cent in my opinion and that of many others that have bought it.

    Just had a thought on a new kmttg feature: Move a SP from one channel to another

    1) users selects sp in sp table that needs to be 'moved' to a new channel
    2) click new 'Move' button
    3) dialog display pops up for user to select new channel (table would provide kmttg the stationId information)
    4) user highlights new channel and selects button to move sp to the new channel
    4) kmttg deletes old sp
    5) kmttg adds new sp with the new channel information
    6) kmttg moves new sp to same priority of previous sp

    Hi, just wanted to see if it might be possible to include a way to disable the "auto re-configuration" of the various paths under the "File Settings" tab. The reason for this is because I rotate USB hard drives all the time between computers, and sometimes I forget to put an empty one back onto the computer.

    For manual "Start Jobs" transfers, if possible, I would rather have the option of seeing some red errors at the bottom of the window {"E:\" is unavailable}, than have it temporarily change the path from "E:\" to "C:\Program Files\KMTTG\" and not give me any error messages.

    I appreciate though that it is at least not changing the "config.ini" file.

    Thanks
    Chris

    what is the difference between the title and mainTitle keywords?

    I am looking instead of

    House - The Social Contract - (02_06_14) to get

    House - 02_06_14 - The Social Contract

    are there keywords to do this?

    I second that request with another option. If you replace your tivo and use kmttg to transfer the sp's it won't copy those with the same name (i.e. same show appearing on different channels where you have a sp set for each channel) I would also like the option of cloning an existing sp to another channel. i.e. Discovery and History for example move their shows between their channels and you can't setup a new sp until the show appears on the new chanel. I know you can directly edit the saved .sp file to modify the sp name and load it back into kmttg, but if this option is being considered it would be much easier if kmttg handled it...

    kmttg checks against existing using both title & channel, so for SPs with same title but different channel it should still work (unless the TiVo rejects it for some reason).

    Was it TiVo rejecting it (i.e. schedule failure) or kmttg not attempting it?

    Checking the code, kmttg looks at title & channel callSign when comparing vs existing.

    I tried restoring an old one (I saved the original .sp file before I started editing it) and got the following message

    Copying Season Passes to TiVo: DVR-F552
    Existing SP with same title found, not scheduling: Once Upon a Time

    Same channel call sign? If so then the behavior is expected. Under normal conditions for a lineup change TiVo adjusts to the proper channel automatically, so checking call sign makes more sense than channel number checking.

    No, the callsign value is different. In the old version (what I attempted to copy back to the TiVo, the callsign is "WMTWDT" and the one that currently exists for that season pass is "WMTW".

    Assuming this is known, but in case it isn't: TWC didn't do the normal lineup change, they rebuild their entire lineup. WMTW was broadcast in two forms, one was a version on channel 8 with a call sign of WMTW (lower quality video), the other was digital HD on channel 508 with a call sign of WMTWDT. All over the air channels plus basic cable channels like AMC, FX, TNT etc had two versions. When they changed the lineup they removed those lower quality video signals with the HD signals, but kept the channel sign. So Channel 8 stayed WMTW, but WMTWDT went away. All my SPs were on the higher quality channels, so the TiVo couldn't automattically change to the correct channel.
