    You'd have to hack registry changes to do it without installing TD. Easiest thing to do is install TD to the point you can confirm .TiVo files play with Windows Media Player, then proceed to uninstall TD and leave a partial install in place (an option given during uninstall).

    FYI, since the "incomplete transfers" issue comes up over and over again (most recently in kmttg sourceforge forum), I decided to create a Wiki page about it which summarizes the problem and 2 workarounds to it:
    https://sourceforge.net/p/kmttg/wiki/Resume_Downloads/

    Let me know if more details are needed in that page or if something is not clear.

    I have kmttg v1.1 installed. I would like why it doing this.In my configuration I have it set to save mpg programs saved in a folder then I have tivo file saved in a different folder? I then have the tivo files deleted. I been doing this way for the last 3 or 4 years.
    With this new version it will not save the mpg to the mpg folder so I have to kept the tivo files.

    Another question. What folder keeps tracks of the down loaded programs. Say for instance Bones. What folder kmttg checks to see if that show has been recorded. Some times I have to manually install kmttg. I would like to know which to keep so I am not down loading that have all ready have.

    It does work. Most likely you put incorrect path to mpg folder and since kmttg can't find it or write to it then defaults to putting them in same folder as .TiVo files. So triple check your mpg folder setting to make sure it exists and has proper write permissions.

    I am finding lately that under 1.1a, my decrypt and QSFix jobs are running very slowly. Right now it looks like its doing about .5 MB per 1-2 min. Might it be the updated tools? How can I revert back?

    Only executable updated was ffmpeg. Besides that DSD and ccextractor were added but nothing else changed, so that's not the problem. The tasks you mention are I/O intensive so I would suspect hard drive write speed related problem. 1st thing I would do is reboot PC if you haven't already, then run some hard drive checks. If you have an alternate drive to write to try changing outputs to that to see if speed improves.

    Hmm, reboot is not the solution because I shutdown nightly and the issue still exist.

    Antivirus like programs are also always a prime suspect for these kinds of problems, so consider that as well in addition to hard drive checks.

    Well, I finally got it working again. I tried the WinXP's Defragmenter and it would not do anything on the drive. The drive is a secondary WD20EARS in a locking dock slot on the PC. Tried to shutdown and defragmenter will still up and frozen. It had worked when I analyzed my main drive, but not the secondary. Forced a reset and the secondary was not listed in Windows Explorer, took out the drive, restarted, everything was fine. Replaced the secondary, restarted, and it was missing in Win Explorer. Went into CtrlPanel, add hardware, selected the drive, finish. Then, the drive appeared in W.Exp. Next I opened KMTTG, and tried a decrypt, QSF and now is faster. Not sure why this came up since about yesterday.

    I recorded a partial show, 43 minutes long. Why does only the first 13:10 get transferred to the computer? The program lists the show as 5.03GB, 1,506MB is transferred.

    Could be a glitch in the recording at that spot.

    What encoding profile is recommended for chromecast? I know I need an mp4, so I am thinking the h264 high rate, but I'm not sure if the audio will work. I can't get chrome to play the audio for this profile but I haven't been able to try chromecast yet.

    Many players can't handle mp4 container with ac3. You can use the iPad profiles (hb_ipad or ff_ipad) or use hb_television which all have aac audio. I don't know anything about Chrome or Chromecast but they may be able to handle playback of mpeg2 in which case you just need to decrypted mpg file and no need to encode to something else.

    Thanks for the response!

    I looked up the supported codecs and found this...

    So, looks like I need to keep the mp4 video but I need to find an HE-AAC or LC-AAC audio option.

    Any of the 3 profiles I posted should work fine then with hb_television probably best quality of the 3.
