    Well, nuts. I had a good run with the version of VRD I had. Does it matter which version I upgrade to? Does kmttg need any special settings after the upgrade?

    VideoReDo TVSuite I don't think you need any special settings.

    Hi All,

    Maybe it's me, but I thought things worked like this. When I do a Season Premiers it pulls down all the new shows. When I would click on one it would show a summary of it in the bottom. It doesn't do that anymore. Is this something that changed or do I need to do something to get this back?

    Thanks

    Edit - I see if I do a Show Information it pops out some info. Is that the new way to do it?

    Nothing has changed in that regard. That's what you should be getting. In addition you can also press "i" to get more detailed information on the show (including artwork).

    So close,...
    This worked for me, any reason we have to turn off TS to download from Premiers? It took me days of searching to find this answer, is anyone other than me having this problem?

    I found a bug that seems to have been around for several versions now. Symptom is that the "messages" (log) pane at the bottom stops working.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Run the app
    2) It loads the NPL (Now Playing) by default on startup
    3) Maximize the window
    4) Minimize the window
    5) Show the window again (while still maximized)
    6) Notice that the messages pane has now frozen and won't show any new messages

    Workaround is to un-maximize and messages will unfreeze

    Incidentally I wish the app would remember its maximization state upon close so that when I run it, it will be maximized at that time already if it was maximized when I last quit it. Many other applications do this.

    At the moment I am using 2.2j on Windows 10 with Java 1.8.0_111-b14.

    Can't reproduce the issue using your steps on my Windows 10 machine (with slightly older Java version).

    Yes when I try with Java 1.8.0_40-b26, I do not have the issue. But with 1.8.0_111-b14, I do have the issue. (Both tests with kmttg 2.2j)
    You mind trying with 1.8.0_111?

    Given that is such a deep level Java functionality and obviously seems to be Java version dependent, there's nothing I can do about it even if I could reproduce with my Java installation - seems to be a Java issue of some sort. Looks like the workaround is use a slightly older version of Windows Java if it is something that is affecting you.
    (I'm using 1.8.0_101.b13 BTW on Windows 10 machine)

    v2.2k version is now released with some AutoSkip related improvements and disabling tivo.com functionality for series 3 units which TiVo broke a while ago and looks like will never fix. Consult release notes Wiki for details:

    Thanks for looking into it/verifying.
    Based on a quick search of JDK bugs, I am guessing it is this one:
    JDK-8166677 HTMLEditor freezes after restoring previously maximized window
    which was been backported to:
    JDK-8167312 for release in 8u122, which is supposed to happen in January 2017

    Thanks for finding the root cause tivohackerdude. Looks like it'll be fixed soon. I had never encountered it, as I don't normally maximize the window, but was able to reproduce it with kmttg v2.2j and java 1.8.011-b14 and the steps you describe.

    The center...
    I was experimenting with AutoSkip from SkipMode, using as a test a popular animated film that was broadcast last weekend. I ran a job to decrypt and cut ads, then looked at the resulting file. It was smaller than the original, but also had a repeated segment. I took a closer look at the cutpoint data and found an inconsistency.

    Here's the cutpoint data, as shown when kmttg ran AutoSkip from SkipMode:
    0: start=00:00:04.771 end=00:18:39.518
    1: start=00:14:34.640 end=00:21:39.181
    2: start=00:32:33.468 end=00:41:41.266

    Note that the second segment starts during the first (hence the repeated segment). And the gap between the second and third cutpoints starts too early.

    Frankly, I'm impressed with the way kmttg attempts to extract that AutoSkip data. But I thought I should report this inaccuracy. Anything else I can provide to help improve this feature?

    Edit: I tried with both kmttg v2.2j and v2.2k.

    phiggins, can you post the "contentId" value for the animated film? Select in NPL list in kmttg and click on "j" key on keyboard to print out show information. Based on that I can download SKIP data to see if there's anything different/unexpected about it.

    That one is interesting. It is a recording of "Frozen" that has 2 different sets of SKIP entries:
    1. 151 minutes total with 10 segments from channel affiliate: Freeform
    2. 124 minutes total with 9 segments from channel affiliate: ABC

    How long is your recording on the TiVo and from which channel affiliate?

    The recording is 124 minutes. I recorded it over-the-air from K44CN-D, a translator for ABC affiliate KNXV.
