    Order the Roameo this past Friday and would thank those who responded to my earlier questions.

    Is any way to programmatically transfer Season Passes from my S3 to the Roameo? I won't be using the S3 after I do so. I'm not referring to any recordings, just the Season Passes.

    You can transfer season passes online. It was very quick when I did it online. A short time later my Romaio Pro was already showing most of the shows scheduled to record.

    I just did this very thing using KMTTG. It was fast and painless. Another side benefit to KMTTG was the ability to backup your season passes and it keeps the season pass priorities the same (although with 6 tuners this really isn't an issue for me anymore!).

    I don't know who wrote the KMTTG program, but he or she deserve a lot of credit and my thanks for providing such a useful program to the TiVo community.

    I used KMTTG also and it is a great program. That and PyTiVo and DVR Commander make the TiVo oh so much more useful.

    I don't have an S3 online anymore but, if I recall correctly, KMTTG won't copy SPs from an S3.

    Yes it can, if you supply your tivo.com login and password in kmttg config.

    I just logged into tivo.com and transferred the season passes there, it took about 30 seconds to 'select all' and transfer them to the new Roamio.

    Thanks. I didn't have that info in there when I used it. Didn't realize you wrote it either. It's a great tool. Thanks for that.

    So is there a newer version of kmttg? The one I have I installed in May 2010. It works with my Roamio but I wonder if there have been some new features added.

    There's a ton of new features compared to the ancient version you have installed. Click on link in my sig to get to latest version. Once you have latest version installed you can update to newest version from Help menu.

    Not true in the real world that I have tested, seen, sold, installed and calibrated on numerous occasions and also PROVEN here in two different benchmarks:

    http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/secr...u-ray-player-hdmi-benchmark-introduction.html

    http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/secr...ray-player-hdmi-benchmark/hdmi-follow-up.html

    Plus we are talking TiVo here, and my reply was responding to the poster asking about image quality differences, so in this case you have to factor in QAM demodulation quality which can have noise, timing errors, etc based on the quality of the hardware used in each one.


    Uhhhh, I AM talking about that genius.. I'm talking about the fact that hdmi carries rgbhv and YCbCr DIGITAL signals and how those formats aren't relegated to analog only, as insinuated by a poster earlier.

    Do people even read and contextualize before they spout their so called "knowledge" all over the digital universe?

    I hope you're not talking and referring to my posts? See above for more "NONSENSE" if you'd like.

    [good info deleted] was not aware of the multiple digital output formats.

    You don't have to be an arrogant a*****e about it with personal attacks.

    Sorry but I already explained in previous posts and people just come on these forums and say whatever they "think" is going on and spreading false rumors that lead to "Best Buy Sales Agent" syndrome, where the only one that loses is the consumer. I'd like to think I earned my knowledge with over 25 years in the industry. I didn't deserve the condescending tone when I was trying to clear up misconceptions in previous posts.

    I apologize for calling you a genius. ;)

    Great article Harper. I have bitten my lip a bit about this because i did not want to take the thread off the rails or start a pissing match. The bottom line is that the idea that "because it is digital" everything is identical does not hold water. My perception has been that color decoding (over HDMI) is slightly different between XL4 and Roamio but without test data it is just a meaningless observation.
