    It's the source, not the material that determines whether or not you have control of TiVo recording quality. In the case you cited, there are probably multiple copies in different qualities available for download. The TiVo just records the digital stream it receives. The only time the TiVo actually controls the quality of what it records is when the source is analog.

    installed mac version of kttmg and thanks again for recommending it. it is useless as a download tool since virtually everything on my tivo has been flagged with drm protection, but it is priceless as an organizational tool. when i re-org'd my sp list it said it failed, but the operation succeeded. the iphone and android apps also report failures, yet succeed, so that must be an erroneous tivo error message.

    back many years ago when i had replaytv there was an outstanding java app that did all this and more and actually had a pleasing interface for a java app. i no longer remember the name, but it made using and maintaining the replaytv effortless.

    ok, off to tackle the python one ....

    Pressing up- and down-arrow while in detailed summary list of upcoming episodes of shows still results in a delay and "Please wait ..." screen monetarily between episodes. It is no longer the case when likewise scrolling through detailed summaries of recorded shows.

    DVarchive. Yes those were the good 'ole days. Replaytv was eons ahead of TiVo in many respects. That being said this RPC (iPad) protocol is a huge step in the right direction. There is little need for any management on the TiVos themselves now. Searching, scheduling, conflict management and re-scheduling on different TiVos, season pass management, etc. can all be done more efficiently via PC and can all be done away from home too (if using kmttg).

    Just a nit-pick, but Android users will confirm that RPC is not the "iPad protocol"!

    installed pytivo, pytivox, ffmpeg, and streambaby and in about an hour had everything running. thanks to you guys for the tips.

    yay! no more copying gigabytes of video files onto the tivo--i can just stream them directly from the mac when needed. and the gigabit ethernet port on the elite is earning it's money now!

    now i have streaming and mac-based management i'll be a very happy camper when i can actually keep my tivo running for more than 24 hours at a go. we're having a conference call on tuesday and although i hope they can find something to fix, given my experience with the cable company, i doubt it.

    You don't need to start a new thread. Just post it in this thread

    Point it to the executable file, not the folder.

    No. Perhaps they'll appear when your ffmpeg setting is correct... if not, we'll explore that later.

    As for your other question, pyTivo copies, it doesn't (yet?) stream.

    sorry about that! i was posting as i was troubleshooting and figured things out on the fly. i've finally got pytivo, pytivox, and streambaby all running and can't thank you enough for your work on pytivo. i'm delighted with all the new functionality and control i have with those apps combined with kmmtg.

    I think technically this wait isn't necessary on either platform, its not as if the Tivo is cranking 100% on this task. I seems more a matter of them not wanting to return the user back to the UI until they've "fixed up" the ToDo list fully to avoid showing incorrect data or something.

    What would probably stress the system (or break it) would be to start a Season Pass re-do on the iPad and then go to the ToDo list or SP manager on the Tivo, and see what happens.

    i've very deliberately avoided doing that. i'm certain very bad things would result ... [g]

    i dislike the right side of the status bar..it looks like you havent recorded all the program...the green to right side of the screen doesnt go all the way to the '1 hr' spot for instance

    Yeah, I find it a bit annoying too. The left side isn't any better- it is a rather large part of the bar wasted for a tiny "TiVo smile".

    Ditto. For a minute I thought my wife had switched channels again to watch Paula Deen (or whatever) and clipped my show. But no, it turned out to be bad UI design.

    i just shrugged my shoulders when i did a double-take thinking my shows were abending early. glad to hear others are as bothered by it as me--imo it's definitely a 'cosmetic bug'.

    There are several little cosmetic bugs. Another one is the yellow oval highlight bar that surrounds the Play, Record, etc., on the menu doesn't line up on some screens - it is shifted down too far. Looks like a formatting error on a spreadsheet or something.

    BTW, I have been using this thing for almost 2 years now and just realized that I can hit the > (Play) button while in the My Programs menu and it will immediately start playing the show. All this time I have been wading through the menu. Nice shortcut. I assume it probably has been a feature for years. I haven't played with my Premiere much due to all the upgrades that keep coming that change things and I am too old to keep remembering all this stuff.:eek:

    I can't guarantee that it has always been this way, just for the 10 years that I have had one.:D

    That's been there forever. Problem is when viewing Remote TiVos the shortcut doesn't work - you have to go inside program details before Play will work (initiate MRS). i.e. Consistency does not seem to be a TiVo priority these days.

    Not only that, but if you hit Play when a folder is selected, it will sequentially play all shows inside that folder. That's a nice feature when you have a few episodes of Big Bang Theory to catch up on in one sitting. :)

    So what transfer speeds are people getting with 20.2? I did some more Transfers from Elite to non XL Premiere, and from Elite to TiVo Desktop. Im still seeing low 70mb/s speeds to the non XL when prior to 20.2 it was 10 to 15 Mb/s faster. To TiVo Desktop I'm now getting low 50mb/s speeds instead of around 70mb/s speeds.

    I'm just wondering if these speeds are consistent with what other people are seeing. Now that streaming is enabled I'm not transferring as much anyway. Plus I'm wondering if speeds were lowered to make it more reliable. Unlike when streaming was enabled by accident and the Premiere would reboot if you tried too many transfers and streaming.
