Separate names with a comma.

Did you actually change the names on the TiVos? What does your account at tivo.com show?
If you recently renamed TiVos you MUST reboot the TiVos in order for them to properly advertise the new names - that is an age old TiVo bug. Also under kmttg config--Tivos tab you can turn off "Look for TiVos on network" to disable discovery in case the above is not the issue.
Yes, the TiVos and the PC have each been rebooted since editing the names under MyAccount on tivo.com. It seems the only way I can get the old names to NOT appear is to turn off "Look for TiVos on network", but I wasn't sure if that was the most desirable setting.
Normally, when you change the Tivo Name on tivo.com, DVR Preferences, you need to force the Tivo Connections, and when complete, reboot.
Okay, I believe I got to the bottom of it. It could be merely a function of a certain number of connects and reboots and time lapsed. However, it also correlates to correcting an issue with the Netgear router I use. This router steers toward "reserving" IP addresses to devices that connect via DHCP rather than the classic technique of setting up static IPs. I actually like the reservation method better, but I had forgotten to reserve the IP address the new Bolt was using, and it changed to another available IP upon a recent reboot. I'm not completely certain, but locking in a reserved IP address for the new Bolt seems to have permitted all the other TiVo naming issues to be resolved.
Thanks for the helpful suggestions.
Hiya! I just discovered kmttg and am excited to get crackin with it.
This may be a case of RTFM (I hope not) but no matter what profile I select, it will download to .Tivo and then convert to .ts
Any ideas what I might be missing?
The decrypt step converts a .tivo file downloaded as transport stream to a .ts file. It's the encode step that will transcode it according to the profile.
If you have "Download in Transport Stream" checked in options, then the downloads will decrypt to .TS. Unchecking that, will download in Program Stream and decrypted will yield .MPG MPEG2 video. However, if the recording is from a h.264/MPEG4 source, then the only option is to use TS.
