    I'm playing with the trial version of VideoRedo TVS on Vista, and the integration with kmttg doesn't seem to work. I get error messages like the following. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Code:
    >> Running qsfix on C:\Users\user\Videos\Flipper.mpg ...
    C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe //nologo "C:\Program Files\VideoReDo\vp.vbs" C:\Users\user\Videos\Flipper.mpg C:\Users\user\Videos\Flipper.mpg.qsfix /t1 /d /q /na 
    qsfix failed (exit code: 0 ) - check command: C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe //nologo "C:\Program Files\VideoReDo\vp.vbs" C:\Users\user\Videos\Flipper.mpg C:\Users\user\Videos\Flipper.mpg.qsfix /t1 /d /q /na 
    C:\Program Files\VideoReDo\vp.vbs(45, 2) WScript.CreateObject: Could not locate automation class named "VideoReDo.VideoReDoSilent".
    -----------------------------

    UPDATE:
    Problem solved! It's not a kmttg issue. VideoRedo has to be run as an administrator at least once in order to register the necessary components. After that, it works great.

    It would be much more helpful if you would suggest solutions to the problem instead of redefining the problem. I think we all know there is a problem. The conundrum is how to fix it.

    Well, you said it *was* related to kmttg, so I had to restate where we were. Have you tried the browser method?

    http://www.tivoblog.com/archives/20...-connect-to-your-tivo-using-your-web-browser/

    Anyway, there's a bunch of people that watch this thread for information on kmttg, and get notified when there's replies here.

    So, please, start another thread in the right place. People will help you. If you do that, come back here and add a link to your new thread to this thread.

    Seriously, it's the right thing to do. The members here will help you.

    I'm using vista with vrd plus. That's one difference, I don't think you need the entire suite. The only other difference I noticed is that vrd+ installed in "Program File (x86)", not in "Program Files". Is the pathname correct in your configuration?

    It appears that the command you suggested has solved my problem. Of course, I'm only a day or so into the apparent success, so I can't unequivocally say it has worked. But, it sure gives me hope.

    Thanks.

    I thought I set it up correctly but I am having issues trying to output in the folder and file naming structure I want.

    I am trying to set it up so the shows go into their own basic title folder with either more specific subfolders or files.

    For example...
    Folder: The Life and Times of Tim
    File or subfolder: Episode 5 - Tim, Stu, and Marie:Miss February (recorded 7/4/09)

    I tried both title and maintitle but they both label the folder as The Life and Times of Tim - Tim, Stu and Marie Miss February_Fri_Jul_03. Am I missing something or will it always pull the full description as the title and maintitle?

    You want to do something like this for File Naming setting:
    [mainTitle][/]["Episode " EpisodeNumber " - "][episodeTitle] (recorded [monthNum]_[mday]_[year])

    NOTE: I use underscores for monthNum_mday_year because '/' is a special character not allowed in file names.
    NOTE: [/] has special meaning to kmttg to create a folder structure as documented in configuring_kmttg Wiki page.
    NOTE: The whole Episode portion is advanced file naming structure that will only appear in the file name if Episode number exists for that show.

    This is what I have...
    [mainTitle][/][title]_["Episode " EpisodeNumber "_"][episodeTitle] ([month] [mday] [year])

    This results in
    K:\tivo\Merlin - Camelots water is poisoned_Episode 103_Camelots water is poisoned (Jun 28 2009)\Merlin\Merlin - Camelots water is poisoned_Episode 103_Camelots water is poisoned (Jun 28 2009).TiVo

    Here is what I am aiming for
    K:\tivo\Merlin\Merlin - Episode 103_Camelots water is poisoned (Jun 28 2009).TiVo

    If I can get it so it just creates the first folder as the name of the series I can play with the rest until I find something I like.

    I have that same episode of Merlin. I set my File Naming template to what I posted:
    [mainTitle][/]["Episode " EpisodeNumber " - "][episodeTitle] (recorded [monthNum]_[mday]_[year])

    When I start a download I get (with c:\home\dvd set as my base .TiVo dir):
    c:\home\dvd\Merlin\Episode 103 - Camelots water is poisoned (recorded 06_28_2009).TiVo

    i.e. [mainTitle] evaluates to Merlin in this case as is expected (for my case anyway).

    EDIT: I think I know what's happening in your case. You have the "Create sub-folder for each download" option enabled under File Settings tab. Turn that off.

    Once you turn off that option looks like setting you want is:
    [mainTitle][/][mainTitle][" - Episode " EpisodeNumber "_"][episodeTitle] ( [month] [mday] [year])

    like innocentfreak's idea to have folder names just use the name of the show, rather than all information defined for the filename. That one, one's recordings are downloaded and organized by show name, rather than having 50 different folders for 50 different episodes.

    That's what the [/] special keyword is for - so you can create any folder structure you want using any of the available keywords. You can even use multiple [/] to create multiple sub-folders. The "Create sub-folder for each download" option was a special request from someone a while back which I never found useful especially once support for [/] was added, so most people will want to leave that off (I probably should make a note of that in documentation).

    Ok I am an idiot and this was my problem. I had create a sub-folder for each download selected so as a result it created the first folder as I showed and then the folder I actually wanted.

    EDIT: Is there a way to pull original air date? I don't see that listed as one of the optional wordings but I may just be missing it.

    No. Original air date is only available with extended show information which requires a separate query to Tivo server to get for each show. So it could be obtained if really desired along with some other extended show info (for example right before initiating a download request for a show), but currently it's not readily available.

    Ok thanks. I wasn't sure since it could pull episode number since it would be helpful on those shows that don't have episode numbers. I just assumed it was part of the same query.

    I played around with this some today but I don't think the network remote responsiveness is good to do this reliably. For example I tried the following sequence of commands to set tuners to channels 2 & 4:
    LiveTV,Clear,2,Select,Clear,LiveTV,Clear,4,Select,Clear

    I used different timing from 0.1 to 2 second intervals between commands and couldn't in any case get my S3 to do what I wanted. So combine that issue with problems of not knowing the exact status of the Tivo at the time you try and do this means this seems too unreliable to pull off accurately...

    This network control would be much more useful if there was proper feedback from Tivo for each command or at least the ability to get a screen shot of the Tivo easily over the network. (ReplayTV had capability of getting screenshots over http which combined with it's network remote capability was pretty useful, except there was a bug that was never fixed that some network remote commands would register twice with each push which made doing some things remotely impossible).

    I played around some more and transferred a good number of videos from my TiVo with kmttg and TiVo Desktop without any issues. Your suggestion to "ResetServer" has been a total success. I'm declaring it a winner.

    Thanks again.

    Can you please tell me if this program allow you to transfer files back to the Tivo dvr? I'm have problems with Tivo Desktop. I can transfer files from the dvr to Tivo Desktop with no problems. But when I try to transfer any files back (even programs less than 1/2), the transfer does not complete.

    Please advise.

    Since using that command once do you still have to use it occasionally to clear up problems? I would find it suspicious that simply running that command once would clear up problems for good, so it may just be pure coincidence if that's the case.
    In any case in development version of kmttg I've added a "Reset TiVo web server" File menu entry in the event that it does indeed do something useful.
