    Please read VideoRedo_configuration Wiki carefully if you have not already. You need to setup kmttg service to use same login account that you run kmttg/VideoRedo GUI with.
    If you still have trouble , in latest version of kmttg there is an option in Configuration, VideoRedo tab called Allow multiple VideoRedo jobs at once. Stop the service, enable that option in GUI and then restart service and see if that solves the problem. I would highly recommend setting up kmttg to auto transfer a tiny test clip recording from your Tivo to use as a test case so you don't waste a lot of time waiting around during testing.

    Moyekj, does this log entry further clarify?

    Just a suggestion, I may be off base, but if the login/videoredo issue comes from the need to right to the temp folder, can you set a scratch directory in the config. I use mediacoder to transcode (cuda rocks) and it is great to be able to set the path for scratch files. Thanks for all your incredible work!

    The good news is that it issued a tivowebplus delete request, and said it succeeded... the bad news is that the delete didn't actually happen.

    Code:
    >> Issuing TivoWebPlus show delete request...
    http://10.0.0.53:8080/confirm/del/1242251
    >> Running qsfix on C:\kmttg\Burn Notice - Partners in Crime (02_18_2010).mpg ...

    That's odd. If you use the url in a browser does it work:
    Code:
    http://10.0.0.53:8080/confirm/del/1242251
    
    kmttg issues the url and then awaits a response. If it receives response "OK" from server then it assume it worked which is what looks like happened, so I can't explain why it doesn't work if the url above is indeed the only thing needed to delete a show.

    I know nothing about Avidemux so can't really comment. I see that it is a freely available program so will try downloading and playing with it. A couple of questions:
    1. What OS are you on?
    2. Are your source recordings Standard or High definition? Or is the problem there either way?

    The program that converts TiVo to mpg does nothing but remove encryption, so the resulting mpg file is a valid mpg program, so it would suggest the problems lie with Avidemux. But I don't know enough about that program to comment.

    EDIT: Just tried it quickly with both SD & HD source mpeg originating from TiVo and didn't see a problem with aspect ratio. Only trouble is it wasn't able to decode AC3 audio which is not a good sign...

    Thanks so much for the reply. I'm using Win XP and I my Tivo recordings are in Standard Definition.

    I've tried using other mpgs with Avidemux and they seemed to come out fine. It only seemed to be the Tivo recordings where the aspect ratio was stretched. Any information you can provide would be great. Thanks again.

    I think to actually delete it needs to click on the confirm button, I think the relevant html code is below:

    Code:
    <div id="content"><FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/confirm" NAME=form><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="u2" VALUE="bnowshowing"><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="sub" VALUE="Delete"> 
    <H1>Confirm Delete</H1><TABLE cellspacing=0  class='showlist'> 
    <TR ALIGN=CENTER class="odd"><th nowrap>Day</th><th nowrap>Time</th><th nowrap>Date</th><th nowrap>Chan</th><th nowrap>Orig.Air</th><th nowrap>Desc</th><th nowrap><INPUT NAME='check_0' TYPE=CHECKBOX  value="Check All" title="Select/Deselect All" onClick="CheckAll('fsida', check_0.checked);" ></th></TR> 
    <TR class="even"><td NOWRAP>Thu</td><td ALIGN=RIGHT NOWRAP> 9:00 pm</td><td ALIGN=RIGHT NOWRAP><p style=display:none>1266526828</p>02/18</td><td NOWRAP>USA</td><td ALIGN=RIGHT NOWRAP><em><p style=display:none>1266451200</p>02/18/10</em></td><td><A HREF="/series/493939/-1" >Burn Notice</A> <A HREF="/showing/1242251/13" >Partners in Crime</A> <small>Sam and Michael investigate a robbery at a chic fashion house; Michael and Fiona gain the trust of a Polish intelligence officer.</small></td><td NOWRAP><INPUT NAME='fsida(1242251)' TYPE=CHECKBOX   CHECKED></td></TR> 
    </TABLE><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submit" VALUE="Confirm_Delete"></FORM> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='/sorttable.js'></script> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='/CheckAll.js'></script></div></BODY></HTML>

    Once I rebooted my PC (audio driver went bad) and run Avidemux on several different shows originating from TiVo (SD & HD) they play fine in Avidemux with audio and with proper aspect ratio. There may be some special resolutions Avidemux doesn't like. You can use Mediainfo to examine properties of mpeg file. Perhaps post here the output of Mediainfo on an mpeg that looks OK vs one that does not to see if anything jumps out.

    So much to try so little time.
    Can't wait to try some of these things out.

    I think I know what's happening. avidemux always assumes square pixel sizes, so if you try and play videos with non-square pixels they will look stretched.
    If your TiVo recordings are coming from Series 2 and they are 480x480 resolution with 4:3 aspect ratio for example, then they will look stretched. If you play them in Windows Media Player of Videolan VLC they look fine. So the issue is avidemux. I didn't see any options to change that behavior.

    Hi moyekj,
    Multiple videoredos is working beautifully.
    One thing though, Kmttg keeps qsfixing the same tivo files over and over again. Am I doing something wrong?

    Using auto transfers? If so then it's probably because the auto.history file is not updated with those shows so kmttg is re-processing them. The history file is only updated following a successful download, so if for some reason you had failed downloads the history file is not updated. To manually add shows to history file bring up kmttg GUI, select the shows in list that you don't want kmttg to process anymore and then choose Auto Transfers->Add selected to history file.

    Oh that makes sense.
    Autohistory was blocking a lot of transfers. I record a lot of news and shows that Kmttg sees as duplicates. I have automated the erasing of the history file, because adding ignore filters to autohistory would be a huge task. I set Kmttg to not overwrite, this is how I block kmttg from redownloading tivo files. Do you think there is a better way to accomplish what I am doing? If kmttg searched ahead of time for same name mpg's it would skip repeating a qsfix.

    If I copy paste ignorehistory program ids, will these downloaded tivo files loop in qsfix?
