    ! The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

    You probably have kmttg service still running, so you need to shut it down and then unzip over current installation. Alternatively you can unzip to a new location and copy over config.ini & auto.ini from your previous installation to preserve settings.

    So if I have a 1tb drive in my Tivo should the pie graph show that?

    kmttg doesn't know how much disk space you have, you have to manually enter the "Total Disk Space" value at the top of the Disk Usage window. That number should be the amount of usable disk space that you have, i.e. the amount of space used when your drive is completely full.

    I have a 1TB WD drive in my Tivo HD. The system info screen on the Tivo reports 157 HD hours of capacity. My total usable disk space is about 915 GB.

    So from error posted obviously comcut step which is using mencoder to cut out commercials is failing. If you are doing any kind of commercial cutting and your source files are from Series 3 Tivo recordings (i.e. digital cable recordings which often have encoding glitches) it is pretty much a requirement to use kmttg with VideoRedo to run Quick Stream fix to clean up any glitches in the source. Also VideoRedo will do a much better job cutting out the commercials compared to mencoder.

    If you have VideoReDo and have not done so, try running your video through QSF before copying it to your WDTV.

    The Tivo just copies the broadcast stream for HD and digital broadcasts. This starts at an arbitrary point when the recording starts and may jump through a mix of rates and resolutions if commercials and local station announcements are present. At times this appears to disrupt the audio initialization process in the WDTV. So far QSF has been able to clean up the streams and allow the WDTV to initialize and play the audio with all the programs that initially fail for me.

    All my stuff is OTA HD. I will try out VideoRedo and see how it works.

    jmemmott,
    Thanks for the tip, I've been doing this on a Mac only so far. I'll test the trial VideoReDo on our PC and see what happens.

    Maybe I missed it in reading the docs. but is there someway to use keywords to limit auto transfers. So I can use channelNum to make sure I get only the episodes in hd?

    No. Currently only text contained in title, episode title & description are matched to the auto transfer keywords and there are no special keywords looked at for further filtering the auto matching.

    FYI, here is some code that I found worked well for the Zune HD:

    # Description (single line, keep short)
    <description>
    mpeg4 container, 480x272, mp4 video, aac audio

    # Encode command or script (single line)
    # Known keywords: FFMPEG, HANDBRAKE, MENCODER, PERL, INPUT, OUTPUT, PWD, CPU_CORES, SRTFILE
    <command>

    FFMPEG -i INPUT -threads CPU_CORES -f mp4 -vcodec mpeg4 -b 1000k -r 23.976 -s 480x272 -acodec libfaac -ab 128k -ar 48000 -ac 2 OUTPUT

    # Encoded output file extension
    <extension>
    mp4

    OK thanks. I'll add it as a new 'ff_zune_hd' profile.

    If you don't like folders, you can still display without folders as before.

    As a potential improvement for the next release, you might ask the user to input the capacity (in HD hours) reported on the System Information screen. You could then translate that into usable GBs. I think that would provide a more accurate capacity estimate for most users.

    For example, if a "157 HD hour" TiVo provides usable capacity of 920 GiB, then that translates to 5.86 GiB capacity per reported HD hour.

    It looks like there is some interest in having files processed by kmttg automatically pushed back to TiVos using pyTivo. Previously I gave a sample solution of setting up a kmttg "custom" job and using a push.py script as described in pyTivo_push Wiki page.

    In search for a potentially better way of doing things I am exploring an auto push type capability with pyTivo similar to what is available with Tivo Desktop. See pyTivo thread for details:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=7556199#post7556199
    Obviously nothing formal at this point but hopefully can lead to something more robust.

    I am using this latest version with file naming set to "[mainTitle][/][mainTitle] ["Ep" EpisodeNumber] [year]-[monthNum]-[mday] [episodeTitle]" (no quotes). kmttg creates the folder, but puts the encoded file in the base level. not in the folder. Is there something wrong with my syntax?

    As long as I can choose the 'cut'.mpg file, instead of the 'encoded' mp4 file.

    I just copied that setting from your post and tried it out and it worked for me. I enabled decrypt & encode and got the following 3 files (my .TiVo and .mpg dir are C:\home\dvd and my encode dir is C:\home\dvd\watch):
    C:\home\dvd\Rescue Me\Rescue Me Ep518 2009-08-09 Carrot Three-Minute Replay.TiVo
    C:\home\dvd\Rescue Me\Rescue Me Ep518 2009-08-09 Carrot Three-Minute Replay.mpg
    C:\home\dvd\watch\Rescue Me\Rescue Me Ep518 2009-08-09 Carrot Three-Minute Replay.mp4
