    The UI only supports decrypting during download. But in the install folder there is a file called tivolibre.exe that you could use on the commandline to decrypt your shows. Although based on your previous comments I'm not sure if the command line is really your speed.

    Turns out, it's a moot point. I installed it, but it doesn't work for me. It says it finds no Tivo, even though one is both hard wired and connected to my wifi. Since I can't find any instructions for it, I don't know how to make it see the Tivo. Back to trying to configure KMTTG, I guess. Any suggestions?

    Just check the Decrypt checkbox. You don't need to recode at all. There are 3 decryption options (tivodecode, tivolibre & DSD) built into KMTTG.

    P.S. You can install .NET 1.1 on Windows 7 - just ignore the incompatibility warning.

    Oh, I see what you mean, now. My bad.... I didn't notice that if I didn't tick "encode", the encoding drop down box was not relevant. Well, great- problem solved, I guess. duh.

    But re net framework 1.1, everywhere I am reading about it says I need to actually DO stuff to install it on 7 PRO 64 bit, like command line stuff, and that's above my pay grade, so to speak. I guess I will stay with KMTTG, simply because it's working.

    I have used the standard 1.1 installer from Microsoft more than a hundred times on 7 Pro. We have a software package at work that won't install without it, just like DSD. No tricks or command line stuff, just double-click the exe and ignore the warning message.

    @moyekj ,

    The solution to my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F Android tablet's problem with .m3u8 files 'magically ' took place today without any intervention on my part.

    While reading another thread here on TCF, on a completely different topic (streaming shows from TiVo Online, IIRC), someone suggested that, although the TiVo App for tablets is a POS for both streaming and downloading shows, it IS useful for performing certain functions on a TiVo (i.e. Season Passes, deleting shows, etc...) so today I decided to install it. It did exactly what that 'someone ' said it would do. :thumbsup:

    Later in the day, Pack-Rat that I am, I was going through the DOZENs of tabs that I currently have open in Chrome on my Lenovo and I came across the kmttg Web Server tab and, right next to it, the '404' error tab. I CLICK'd on the '404' tab and the 30 minute comedy that my 'ancient ' desktop prepared (took 70 minutes for a 30 minute NBC show) weeks ago began playing. What a pleasant surprise!

    So, FYI, or anyone SEARCHing on this topic, 'something ' (maybe a codec?) included with the TiVo App for Android on GOOGLE enabled my Android tablet to play .m3u8 files.

    Hi, it seems the local NBC channel (432) here on Comcast in S FL is giving me a problem. It is MPEG2 still and the .tivo file after being transferred only comes up with a few seconds in it. The decrypted file is all there, but audio only. There is a repeating error that is coming out in the CMD box:

    PacketId: 22,300,000 Type: AUDIO_VIDEO_PRIVATE_DATA PID: 0x0ef2 Position after reading: 4,192,413,312

    The PCR PID and VIDEO PID are 0EF2 and the Available Audio PID's are 0EF3 and 0EF4 with the last one used as 0EF3 and they are both AC3. This from the tivo diagnostics, if this info helps.

    I tried several different programs on this channel and they all do the same thing and other MPEG2 and 4 channels do download correctly. I tried many versions. I also tried Tivo Desktop (HA) and also the pyTivo (which does need some work, but would rather use KMTTG).

    My settings are correct. I think this has been happening for a couple of weeks now. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    THANKS

    Try turning TS downloads off and re-download the show in PS mode to see if it works.

    While exploring and learning more and more about feature-rich kmttg, I believe that I've finally found a few things that I think would be useful, but kmttg (2.2s) doesn't seem able to do:
    1. As I continue to play 'Musical Chairs ', moving 'overflow ' shows from my Roamio Basic to my Roamio OTA and finally to my external 3TB HDD via kmttg, I'm comparing the ToDo List on my 'physical ' Roamio OTA (Blue LED lit; transfers in progresss) to the one displayed in kmttg; kmttg shows the upcoming Season Pass recordings but not the transfers-in-progress?
      - Is there a reason for that?
      .
    2. The majority of the shows that I'm moving off the Roamio Basic are KUID, yet when they're saved on the Roamio OTA, they're 'Space needed '.
      • Is there a way to detect the KUID setting on the source TiVo and use it on the target TiVo?
      • If not, is there a way to change the setting remotely w/ kmttg? Currently, I believe TiVo Online and the 'newly-installed ' TiVo App on my Android tablet are my only options.
      .
    3. Once a show has reached the external 3TB HDD stage and I'm now finally ready to view it, I transfer it back via pyTiVo (using the TiVo remote while relaxing on my couch) and I (later) notice that 'Skip' and 'Channel' information are missing (using kmttg on my old Vista 32-bit desktop) and [originalAirDate] has changed to 'Transferred Date' (according to pyTiVo).
      - Is this something kmttg didn't save, pyTiVo didn't restore, or?
      - Who would I ask to look into / 'fix' it? Kevin or William?
      .
    4. [I'm in the process of reading Sharing commercial skip files (which I found by accident) so this here is mainly an observation / comment.]

      When I recently began using kmttg again a few weeks ago (after the crash of my HTPC laptop months ago), I immediately upgraded to 2.2s to take advantage of AutoSkip. Always hungry for information, I found and read kmttg Wiki: AUTOMATIC COMMERCIAL SKIPPING WITH KMTTG where it states:
      so I began creating and saving an .EDL file with every .TIVO PS / 'Slow' Format transferred file onto my external 3TB HDD. Now, when I tried to play one and I)mport the data from the .EDL file, kmttg is complaining that it needs a .SRT (Closed Caption) file. So, I used the FILES tab, create one and still nada.
      - Yes, I haven't finished reading the LINK that I began this item with. But, the kmttg Wiki seems a bit lacking on this topic (i.e. no reference at all to .SRT files; why would I need to ZIP it? Has anyone successfully done this and I'm missing the point?)
    Thanks! :)

    Yes, that worked, thank you very much! I read/thought the TS option should be used all the time. You do have to use the TS option on MPEG4 files though. PS is a bit slower, but who cares. It also fixed the problem Unknown PES extension header type: 3 that I sometimes get too.

    I am not even going to ask why the option fixed it, because I probably would not understand...LOL. :D

    LOVE THE PROGRAM, USE IT ALL THE TIME...THANKS AGAIN

    1. In-progress todo through RPC command I'm using doesn't work.
      • Don't know how to set KUID flag via RPC. The property is "deletionPolicy" but don't know of a way to set it.
      pyTivo question.
      That link is not what you want. The zip files and .srt files only for sharing skip data with other people. To import .edl data simply click on relevant show in NPL table and choose "Import AutoSkip cuts" entry (bindkey c)

    [​IMG]Yep, that is what I have been trying and this is what I get after choosing "Import AutoSkip cuts" entry (bindkey c), which I why I began SEARCHing for the proper procedure.

    Sorry that it's blurry - I'm just learning how to use MSPaint. You can see the missing 'Skip' and 'Channel' info that I mentioned earlier. What do you suggest that I try next (re: the Import, not the missing info)?

    (Or is this 'Ready-to-roll ' and I'm just confused over the pop-up...)

    Sorry, pointed you to the wrong entry. Click on the "Import Skip" hard button instead as that's the one that imports local cut file (.edl or .Vprj).

    Missing offerId => not recorded on the TiVo. Perhaps you transferred it to the TiVo using pyTivo or similar. offerId is the key for both TiVo SkipMode and kmttg AutoSkip.

    So, downloading shows from TiVo-to-PC and storing both the .TIVO file and .EDL file with the intention of achieving 'AutoSkip' at some future date is fruitless since when pyTiVo brings the show back 'offerId' is missing.

    Do I have that right?

    [Thinking out loud...]

    So, while the original file is still on a TiVo unit, with the 'Skip' displayed in kmttg, one could create the .EDL file and then using the FILES tab, feed it to Comskip and create a .MPEG file (along with .TXT and .SRT for metadata and closed captions respectively) with the commercials now permanently removed?

    Or, could one STILL use the FILES tab on a .TIVO file stored on an external HDD and feed in the .EDL file for Comskip - 'Experiment' to follow...

    With SKIP displayed you can just use "AutoSkip from SkipMode" (bindkey v) to generate AutoSkip entries directly from selected table entries that have SKIP icon. No need to download the show. You can then optionally generate .edl files automatically from AutoSkip table if the intent is to download and remove commercials at some point. The Wiki pages on AutoSkip cover a lot of this information if you read them carefully.

    I've noticed an issue with loading the Thumbs data -- there appears to be some corruption of the ratings information on load. For example, if I load it from the TiVo, then edit some entries, say from a 3 to a -3, then hit load again, the change may or may not show. If I zero the entry, then load, again, it may or may not remove that entry. As another test, I load from TiVo, make some changes, save to a file, then load from the file, the changes may or may not be there. In some cases, other entries that were not touched are changed, as well. Any thoughts?
