    Is there a way to check on the Tivo if it's h.264? (or see in kmttg or some other app)?

    I thought the h.264 issues with tivodecode were fixed.. or is it tivolibre I'm thinking of?

    This was my guess of the problem too, but I had thought in the past I had successfully downloaded h.264 recordings.

    You can find out if a channel is MPEG2 or H.264.

    Tune to the channel and got to:

    Settings & Messages->Account & System Info->Tivo box Diagnostics

    The Video PID for the tuner that is on that channel will tell you.

    Must have been TivoLibre. wmcbrine has a tivodecode-ng but it's not fully working and he posted a few times about porting the fixes from TivoLibre to it.

    The problem I was having with my TiVo Premiere refusing to download to kmttg was solved by rebooting the TiVo. Thanks moyekj.

    Now I have a problem in that kmttg refuses to download all of a 94-minute program. It stops at 42:39. Several times. I checked the video PID, as suggested above, and it's MPEG2 on the channel from which the program was recorded. "combine download and decrypt" is not checked.
    Is there anything I can check that will tell me why the download has stopped? Is there any setting of either kmttg or the TiVo premiere that will allow the download to complete?

    moyekj, Thanks. I'll try this when I get a chance in the next day or so. The problem your link points to seems like the likely problem as the download has failed at exactly the same point several times on this machine and once on another.

    It would be nice if I could change the IP address of a TiVo. I love the ease with which I can access my TiVos and download shows with kmttg when I am away from my home network. However, whenever my ISP changes my external IP address, I have to add new TiVos with the new IP address and enter all the port numbers again from scratch. Is there an easier way to do this that I am missing? If not, it would be great if an easier way could be added.

    Also, is there any way to delete shows on a TiVo HD?

    The solution to that problem is use DDNS. My Asus router has DDNS built in, which means I can assign a fixed name such as myname.asuscomm.com and use that instead of a specific IP number which as you say the ISP can change frequently. So when using kmttg away from home instead of IP numbers I use the above name which never changes.
    TiVo removed all RPC related capability for series 3 TiVos so there's no RPC way of deleting shows. If you have a hacked series with TiVoWebPlus enabled you can delete, but I wouldn't recommend going down that path...

    EDIT to add: Note you could directly edit kmttg config.ini to change IP #s instead of delete/add through GUI.

    A problem seems to have developed. When I click on kmttg.jar the program starts to load and then immediately closes. I don't know when it started since I only use it occasionally and manually (no auto transfers), the last time I used it was in November. My system is windows 10. I tried uninstalling Avast, which I did switch to in the past week. Should I just uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy? If so how do I uninstall, since it doesn't appear in my programs list?

    Remove the following file to see if it fixes the issue:
    C:\Users\YourAccountName\kmttg_settings_v2

    It did work. Thank you. I feel like a boulder has been taken from my shoulders.

    Do I need some OTHER setting enabled too? I enabled check download duration, and always get an error like this.. (and note that it STILL deletes the file even if it gets an error.. I'd say it shouldn't, out of safety..)

    'Check download duration' option enabled => checking expected vs. actual
    (Mismatch tolerance = 200 secs)
    Expected duration = 3595 secs

    Make sure you don't have the "Combine download and Decrypt" option checked.

    Agreed. Sounds like a bug.

    Sounds like mediainfo is not working for you. Rename the "mediainfo_cli" folder under kmttg installation to something else to force kmttg to use ffmpeg instead of mediainfo to determine duration.

    What happens if there is no file for mediainfo to check?

    ok, I remember in the past you didn't necessarily want to fix every single nitpicky bug, but I think this is another case that should be covered... it shouldn't let me set both of them at the same time, or should at least warn in the log output that it isn't doing check length BECAUSE you also have combine download & decrypt enabled..

    I guess I'll just turn off the check duration setting for now, since I really really like having the files end up decrypted, so I can use them directly.. (I know, I could write a simple shell script or something to automate decrypting a random file..)

    You can set kmttg to d/l and decrypt, just don't use the option that combines them into one step ,which is what you're currently doing.

    Uncheck the box on the "Program Options" page that says "Combine download and decrypt".

    ok, I disabled combine decode & decrypt.. and it still fail to check duration..
    Unable to determine duration using mediainfo from file: /Volumes/Tivo3/kmttgdownloads/Later...With Jools Holland/01_08_2017 4903.TiVo

    edit: I removed a section saying I was unable to decrypt.. I actually ran out of disk space, it looks like if I use tivolibre, it will work...

    Separating download and decrypt was an attempt to isolate the problem.

    If you're that low on disk space, it could be the source of all of your problems.
