    I have Womble Mpeg Video Wizard DVD 4.0.4.112. There are no size limitations (at least not that I have run into). For HD editing it is much faster for me to use compared to VRD because dragging the cursor along timeline (scrubbing) is very fast compared to VRD.

    It's there as a legacy request. The tooltip and documentation already mention that most users should not use this and use [/] instead.

    You can use "custom" task to do such things. There's so many permutations of things people want to do with files, folders, locations it's impossible to accommodate all requests.

    That's odd. I don't think there is anything in kmttg that should do that. Maybe it's from ffmpeg somehow. Which encoding profile are you using and are you using ffmpeg from kmttg tools package?

    I know it's a legacy request, but I don't understood why it's still there, since the [/] command can be used provide the same functionality. There are probably no more than a handful of people that use that option; those users can learn the [/] command instead like everyone else. If you really want to provide a seamless transition for those folks, you could just add [title][/] to File Naming for every user that has that option checked.

    If you really want to leave the option there, then I would update the option so checking it visually modifies File Naming.

    What about the issue of directory cleanup I mentioned in the previous post? "Remove .TiVo after file decrypt" and "Remove .mpg after encode" should also remove any empty folders created as part of that step.

    I deal with this sort of argument quite often with my career. I deal with a software developer that quite often will REMOVE features as part of an "upgrade", thinking that they know everything about how their customers are using this particular feature. They remove the feature, and it takes something critical away, that I need to do business.

    My point is, you never know how convoluted each users' setup is, and you never know what you might take away by removing a feature. For each reason there is to remove a feature, there may be two reasons that you can't think of to keep it...

    Am I misunderstanding that feature?

    As far as I can tell, it is simply a shortcut to add a hidden [title][/] to File Naming. If I am missing something here, please let me know.

    If you are going to provide such a shortcut, then I think it would benefit far more users to have a shortcut for [mainTitle][/] rather than [title][/]. I've already had four people ask me how to do that via PM on AVS.

    You're probably not misunderstanding. All I'm saying is: There could be a user (or several) that are using that particular feature for something completely different by using it in combination with another feature. I'm saying that this may be something that we are simply unable to think of. (Happens to me all the time with my software vendor)

    The option is not as simple as [title][/] since it replicates the entire file name according to file naming template minus the file extension. I really don't understand why it bothers anyone to be there. It defaults to turned off and tooltips and documentation indicate availability of the more useful [/] feature already. It's pretty much guaranteed if I did remove it someone would complain and want it back which is why I hesitate to do so. Perhaps next release I'll simply hide the option and see if anyone complains and then eventually get rid of it completely if nothing comes up.

    I'll put in a feature request under "Issues" at google site for the empty directory stuff. It's trickier than it sounds since I would have to ensure that it just doesn't remove empty folders containing those files, rather it would need to check if file name template uses [/] and then remove the relevant folders if they are empty. Even then that could get tricky if folders span more than 1 level of hierarchy, so I don't envision that being a simple change.

    I just downloaded the latest trial version of MPEG-VCR (3.14.7.2 06/2009) and while it doesn't crash when trying to open a decrypted HD TiVo file, it seems like it chokes on the video and just brings up the internal Womble MPEG Audio Player.

    I guess I'll have to give the Video Wizard trial a shot.

    Note that playback through Womble Wizard is not good at all, but it does a fine job of editing mpeg2.

    For those using KMTTG as a replacement for Tivo Desktop, what are you using so that you can pull with the Tivo? Or does KMTTG have this and I just missed it?

    Hmm I was hoping there was another option where I can initiate the transfer from the Tivo. I guess I will just use KMTTG to transfer and then leave Tivo Desktop running pointed to the same folder so I can still pull with the Tivo.

    When I go to the Tivo I usually initiate a couple transfers depending on what I feel like I might want to watch and then while those transfer watch recordings already on the Tivo.

    With pyTiVo, you can initiate a transfer with your TiVo interface, just like with TiVoDesktop. You can also initiate it from any computer in your house.

    Is it possible to create custom command for DVD project creation (and burning) with VideoRedo?

    Would it be possible to create a command or custom command to assign and burn all selected downloads to a DVD? I'd like to set X programs to download before I go to bed, and when I wake up, I'd have to have a burned DVD with those X programs.

    Edit: I see it isn't possible.

    Does anyone know of another program with command line options that will accept a SD MPG for [automatic] remuxing and burning to DVD?

    On a Mac, yes. Toast is AppleScriptable, and can be called by the kmttg custom command.

    Ok thanks. I guess I will sit and play with Pytivo again to see if I can get it working.

    I use a slightly modified default HD Tivo profile (4000 bps instead 5000) with the Ffmpeg program that came with KMTTG.
