    Thanks moyekj for doing this so quick.

    I have downloaded this version of kmttg, made the changes in the config section and tried a small file. The recording comes down fine (and is in TS format) but then VideoRedo faults. But I seem to have a problem with my setup, because if I put it back to PS and it comes up with the same error. The full message list is below.

    Code:

    I was pretty sure I had it working with VideoRedo a while ago but now I'm not so sure. Any ideas. Anything I should look at. I am using Vista64.

    As requested, you can download a TS file at http://members.iinet.net.au/~kookie/xfer/ . There's two files, one is the TS and the other is a PS of the same recording (if it helps).

    Looking at the VideoRedo_configuration Wiki it appears that is the message you get for an unregistered version of VRD or one that you have not run through the GUI yet. Perhaps run QS Fix once manually via the GUI and then try again via kmttg.
    It could also be a permissions problem if you have UAC enabled. If that's the case then perhaps try running kmttg as Administrator.

    Thanks for the TS & PS files. Mediainfo recognizes the TS properly along with PIDs so I'm pretty sure VRD will work. I can't decode them without your MAK ID so can't try it but I'm fairly certain VRD will work. If you can run VRD manually and get it to work then you should be able to get it to work via kmttg as well.

    Yep, it's all working now. I had already turned off UAC, but I still needed to run kmttg as Administrator. Thanks for the tip. I have only tried the one test recording, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work for all. I'll be using it over the next few days and will let you know if I have any problems.

    Thank you again very much. It should save me a lot of downloading time. Pity it doesn't work for you in the US.

    Every show that I convert from MPG to MP4 gets the audio out of sync.. Has anyone else encountered this error? If I do not convert the MPG files audio stays in sync fine.

    Thanks,

    Do you use use VideoRedo as part of the flow? It's pretty much a requirement to clean up glitches in digital cable recordings if you are going to do any post-processing such as cutting out commercials and/or encoding to different formats. You will find that for example TiVo Desktop will suffer from the same problem as well when encoding to other formats.
    The glitches tend to vary a lot for me. There are actually recordings from some channels that are fine and don't need VRD QS Fix, but a lot of them do have problems and need to be cleaned up first. So I just have VRD QS Fix task permanently enabled for all my transfers and that fixes any such issues.

    Any idea why I'd lose the ability to download from 1 of my Tivo's? It get's the program list OK, but always times out with an error when trying to download a program. Works fine for my S3, just started acting up with my S2 Humax. I checked the wi-fi strength and it seems OK. using the v0p7f version, but this started a few days ago with v0p7c. Thanks for a great program.

    Not sure, I never have the problem with my S3s but I have seen mention of others with the problem, usually for S2s. A couple of things to try:
    Make sure the Humax tab is selected in kmttg and run File->Reset TiVo web server. Wait a minute or so and then try downloading again. If still no luck then rebooting the TiVo may fix it.

    I had a very similar problem with one of my TiVo's. What I did to fix the issue is log onto tivo.com, go to your account settings. It listed my TiVo's and what MVE and download options are available. All I did was uncheck MVE on all my tivos, save, then recheck them all and save again.

    And magically my TiVo could once again download from the TiVo that was just showing the download list.

    Hope this fixes your issues as well,

    Rick

    So, I did a test install on my box (I have a new mobo coming and will likely have to blow away the windows install) and except for the videoredo stuff it works great. All the paths in the configuration take some experimenting though, but I can see why you might want to do those tasks in different folders. For me I want all the processing to be local with the final mpg going to my Galleon server. I don't need the MP4's as yet, except on a couple of shows that I might want to watch on my iPod touch.

    One of the cool things about this is that I can transfer shows from my HD. That's incredible since none of my other TiVo's can.

    Thanks moyekj for creating this update for kmttg for us Aus/NZ users. I have downloaded and decrypted a number of TS files now and all seems to be working fine. The maximum speed I got from the Tivo with the TS format was 20Mb/s but most seemed to be around 15Mb/s in speed. I haven't tried many in PS but one I tried just now was around 10Mb/s. So the increase in speed seems to be around 50% reduction. Definitely worthwhile. Thanks again.

    Just a request - If possible could you add an option to change/enlarge the fonts used? At 1920x1200 resolution they are really, really tiny.

    Thanks again for a great program!

    Not exactly trivial to implement, but I've added text font size config option to next release.

    Thanks very much, that would be great. I know absolutely nothing about programming, but maybe it would be easier, if instead of configuring it for any size, you could just add a few fixed options for a few larger versions of the current font. For instance, if it's currently X Font 9, you could add options for X Font 10, 12, 14. Something like that.

    Yes that's what's there now - just a font size with a default of 12 that you can set to whatever you want (and it's saved to config so you change it once and it will remember).

    Oh, is that in the present version? I didn't see it in the options. I didn't realize it was there, that would be fine, that's all I really need.

    No, it's checked into current development version but not released yet. I have a few loose ends to finish up before a release.

    See release_notes for details.

    NOTE: For those using VideoRedo there are some important changes outlined in release notes, 1 of them being an option to use VideoRedo to decrypt instead of tivodecode, another change related to using VideoRedo without commercial detection - output file is now expected to be generated from VideoRedo instead of having kmttg run the Ad Cut task.

    if we can do decode + qs fix in one step, what does that have to do with skipping ad-detective/ad-cut? I'm confused. Why wouldn't I want to do decode + qs fix in a single step regardless if I am doing vrd ad-detective/review/ad-cut steps?

    They are not related. Basically 2 things related to VideoRedo is what I was trying to communicate:
    1. New option available: "Decrypt using VideoRedo instead of tivodecode"
    This combines VRD QS Fix & decrypt into a single task, but requires you to have at least a minimal install of TiVo Desktop with TiVoDirectShowFilter to be able to decrypt TiVo files.

    2. "Bring up VideoRedo GUI to make manual cuts" option when enabled is now different than before. Previously the Ad Cut task was still executed after VideoRedo GUI, so you would use VRD to define the cuts and then save as a project and let kmttg run the Ad Cut task. Now with this option enabled you are expected to ouput mpeg file with commercials cut out from VRD GUI itself, and kmttg won't run the Ad Cut task.
    I made this change because there are some things like Audio Boost that only work when you output file from VRD GUI.
