    I feel like it's a little slower, but that might just be my imagination. I'll leave it as is since it's working. kmttg is the ONE program I didn't want to break with the upgrade, so I'm glad it's working.

    v1.1b version is now released. This version contains File Naming override setting in auto transfers setup and a new Reboot button available under Remote-Info tab for series 4 or later units. Consult release_notes Wiki for details.

    I just installed 1.1b to try to transfer SPs to my new TiVos but before I attempted that, I wanted to edit the .csv files to quickly modify the number of episodes that are kept. When I tried loading the modified _sp.csv file back, I got the following error:

    readJSONArray - A JSONArray text must start with '[' at 1 [character 2 line 1]

    I tried loading an unmodified _sp.csv and got the same error.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong as I just started using kmmtg.

    I don't believe that kmttg supports importing from a .csv file.

    I think I should have Saved to a files then Loaded them. I used Export previously.

    Alright, I read the wiki and can't find out how to download a show. I don't want to setup an AutoTransfer. I just want to download one show off of the NPL.

    I recently had an update to java - version 7 I think, however there test site never works for me so I cannot tell if its okay, support of course is all pay and worse!!!

    I ran knttg.jar and it does nothing, went through the steps to associate the javaw.exe file and am still crippled, however me and many other never get any info on testing the java through the java site, so how can I even approach fixing the sudden problem?

    Open a dos window (execute cmd from Start menu) and then execute as follows:
    cd "c:\dir\where\kmttg\is\installed"
    kmttg.jar

    This way you can see error messages.

    Mac Tivoto Go - version 1.1a - with the latest versions of Java and OSX and I am trying to download to a USB attached disk drive (moving off my local hard drive) but the when I configure the File ,Settings setting to choose the USB drive it get an error once I have selected the directory. Any idea? I am also getting a JAVA error when I choose File, Configure the first time and then the second time it works. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Sounds like Java File Manager is having trouble in general. Try bypassing the File Manager and just enter the correct full path directly in the config field. Note that if kmttg doesn't have write access there then the files will go into the kmttg install dir instead.

    I just got round to trying using atomic parsly from within kmttg to correct and add in tags in my mp4 files. Is there a reason it does not write the title field? It seems to update many other fields but not title and looking at the command in the log, sure enough, --title is not to be found. Is there an option for this?

    Thanks

    --title is whatever episodeTitle is in the metadata file

    --TVShowName uses what's under title in the metadata. --stik "Short Film" sets it as a movie

    For non-episodic shows this is used:
    --stik "Short Film"
    For episodic shows it becomes:
    --stik "TV Show"

    When title is present in pyTivo metadata file all of these are set based on the title:
    --TVShowName
    --artist
    --albumArtist

    (This is all supposedly designed to be iTunes friendly, but personally I despise iTunes and don't use it, so wouldn't know - a lot of the implementation in this code is based on contributions from iTunes and other users).

    I see --stik "Short Film" so that works fine,

    But nothing sets --Title and that is what is displayed in the Tivo shows list when pushed with pytivo. And why would one want --artist set as the title of the film? Would that not be the studio or perhaps the director or leading actor?

    I have no use for iTunes, its just that pushing mp4 files with bogus data in the tags, the tivo ignores what pytivo sets and uses what is in the file. I need to properly populate the file to fix the bogus data some of my files seem to have acquired. Don't know when Tivo started this behavior, but its within the last couple releases. Heck, I could even live with overwriting --title to blank and then Tivo would use the metadata pytivo sends. Could you look at adding provision for --title?

    Thanks

    OK, added --title based on title pyTivo metadata field. You can try out kmttg.jar from this zip file if you wish:
    kmttg_v1.1c_beta1.zip

    I was thinking a long while about a shortcut for going in and out of a folder on KMTTG. Is there or could you add in the Unshifted < (comma) and >(period) for out and in respectfully. It may seem like the lazy way to navigate the NPL, but it can work quicker instead of having to always click that back button.
