    There's no references to kmttg code in those exceptions, so it's probably a Java Swing related issue. Chances are nothing bad is resulting from them though other than the dump to message window...

    I realize this is a tiny tiny tiny thing, but is it possible for kmttg to launch the new copy when you upgrade?

    Even if it launches the new one, and the old one can't do anything BUT quit, that would still be better than now, saying yes at the ok to quit dialog and having to relaunch the new one.

    I thought about it before but decided there's too many ways one could have started the kmttg GUI (with different JRE/JVM options etc.) where it would be a pain to try and reproduce the exact way to restart. After re-considering I just took the KISS approach and basically just do /full/path/to/java -jar kmttg.jar to launch a new one and exit existing one. If that doesn't suit everyone then they still have option to just quit current session and start a new one anyway their normal way, so probably good enough...

    Oh, so you're saying it *should* launch the new one? I simply get the "ok to exit" dialog, but the new one doesn't launch.

    Oh, maybe that's because OS X (properly) allows only one instance of the app to launch at the same time, and it "thinks" there would be two copies running. (You can manually duplicate an app and run "two", but that's weird.)

    Slight bummer in this case I guess.

    When you choose "Update KMTTG" it downloads and updates kmttg.jar and it does not affect the KMTTG currently running so it must be restarted.

    Each time you KMTTG on your computer, it starts a new app/window but does not close the previous opened app.

    No, current release simply exits and it's up to you to re-start. Next release will have a re-start.

    v1.1a version is now released.
    Main update is for Windows users added new option to decrypt .TiVo files using DirectShow Dump. This provides way for Windows users without VideoRedo to decrypt TS .TiVo files if desired. Note that DSD requires at least a partial installation of TiVo Desktop to work.

    Be sure to use Help menu to update Windows Tools package which includes DSD.

    Consult release_notes Wiki for details.

    Isn't TivoDecode used for this step?

    Not if you're using VideoReDo.

    tivodecode does not work reliably, if at all to decrypt TS .TiVo files, whereas DirectShow Dump can handle those without problem. So it's mostly useful for TS .TiVo downloads. In the case of H.264 recordings (my cable company has some of those), for example, your only option is to download those in TS container.

    i.e. This is a Windows alternative to overcome limitations of tivodecode and without using VideoRedo.

    Some where...
    I have kmttg version 1.1a installed. I have the programs options set to jave rpc not checked.
    What is happening is the program is stopping about a minute from the end and starting the down load again.
    What could be the problem?

    Running WIN-7 64 bit

    In order to update kmttg tools to use the latest version of MediaInfo CLI v.0.7.69 vs the version that comes with kmttg v0.7.62, do I;
    1. download and unzip the newest version into <kmttg_installed_directory>\mediaInfo_cli ?
    2. should I download the 32 or 64 bit version?

    Yes that would work (probably either 32 bit or 64 bit would work). But I really don't see the point of updating since the default version is working fine AFAIK.

    Thanks moyekj, let me rephrase #2.
    Did you include the 32 or 64 bit version of MediaInfo CLI in the tools package?
    I'm getting intermittent problems where MediaInfo CLI reported duration of TS TiVo downloads are incorrect and it also reports the video as encrypted and doesn't show additional info on the video stream portion, but if I redownload from the TiVo as PS they're fine. Just thought I'd try out the latest MediaInfo CLI version to see if it helps.

    P.S. I'm guessing you used the 32 bit version so will try that one

    I've been using windows media player in XP to play the .tivo files that transferred with KMTTG but recently those files won't play and the WMP displays "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file. For additional assistance, click Web Help." How do I fix this issue? Thanks.

    It isn't, I'd never enabled it. At the moment I can't play the very .tivo files I was able to play before.

    It won't play .Tivo files unless you had Tivo Desktop installed/partially removed, otherwise you have to use Decrypt.

    Is there anyplace to just download this file:
    TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll
    So I don't have to install Tivo Desktop?
    I would really like to download all my files in TS format (which seems quicker).
