Yet another feature request(s)..
Maybe this is already in more recent builds, but I seem to recall a time when I was trying to close a child window, used Alt-F4 (on windows), and the whole program closed, which resulted in a bunch of partially processed job sequences. Would the "maintain job queue between sessions" option (which I did not have selected) have minimized the manual recovery needed afterwards, even though I was running in GUI mode?

I can't test the current behavior right this moment, as I have a bunch of qsfix and comskip jobs still being processed (more on this in a sec).

Perhaps with java this would be beyond the programs control, but it would be nice if there were a confirmation dialog before the program exits. I have not tried the "save and restore job queue" features, but if kmttg does get control when window is closed, in addition to OK/Cancel choice, perhaps a option to save current job queue could be added.

The reason for long queue of qsfix and comskip jobs is a (videoredo) decrypt/qsfix job that got stuck for 14 hours at 100% completion (until I canceled the job from kmttg gui). I do not have the "run multiple VideoRedo tasks" option selected. Would it be practical for kmttg to automatically cancel the problem job (and optionally add it and dependent jobs back to end of queue (once)), once some reasonable amount of time has passed and status of program isn't changing?

The "Automatically restore job queue between sessions" when checked will save the jobs currently in the jobs list and if you accidentally closed the window, the next time its opened, those jobs will restart. Its also listed when your mouse hovered over that option and the popup will explain.

I'm having trouble transferring a single episode and only this one episode. Everything other episode/show transfers no problem. it isn't copy protected, and I have plenty of space on the HD in question. I even switched HDs and it still won't download all the way. It stops at 50%, my connection doesn't die as it just moves to the next show in Q like it downloaded that episode 100% even tho it didn't. Has anyone ran into this issue?

Most likely, there is some kind of glitch in the video or audio that stops the transfer. You can view where the file stopped and go to the same spot on the Tivo. You can then pause the video after that trouble spot (glitch) and resume the transfer. But remember to rename the file on the PC even slightly, or else it will be over written when you resume the download. (This will not work with the Premiere or Roamio, unless you have a Series 3 as the middleman.)

TiVo in their infinite wisdom has shut down web page launching on internal Opera browser via RPC with 20.4.1 release. Thanks TiVo:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...8#post10063738

Last few software updates have increasingly crippled that capability and now completely killed it. Guess next kmttg update I'll be removing the now useless Remote Web tab.

Since the update to my Roamio this morning, kmttg seems to be having difficulty running the NP List job. Just sits there saying it is running.

Files download but do not delete and manual deletes do not work either.

I have stopped and restarted kmttg since the 20.4 software update.

Following 20.4.1 software update on my Roamio Pro I did initially have trouble running any RPC commands, but a reboot of the Roamio Pro fixed it. Then while testing all the Remote tabs I discovered the web issue posted above.

BTW, with 20.4.1 update MRV and TTCB transfers to my Roamio Pro now noticeably slow it down - unit gets very sluggish while transfers are occuring. More experimentation needed but not looking good...

To deal with cases where a show that would have a conflicting file name (for example, a recording interrupted and restarted, or an episode that you recorded again because head or tail was missing some content), it would be nice if there were a "right click / download as..." option that presented the configured "base" name and allowed user to edit. then used that modified base name for the items created in job queue.

To expand on that concept, KMTTG could scan the final destination (and perhaps intermediate locations) to look for existing files that might interfere with normal processing and offer the option to provide new base name or delete the troublesome files. In the case where user does not respond to prompt after a few minutes, KMTTG could dismiss the dialog box and continue based on whatever the default configuration specifies. On some occasions I have temporarily modified the file name template to achieve a similar result. An alternative approach could be to offer the option to avoid any detected file name collisions with a typical rename scheme, like appending _2_ to the base file name.

On an unrelated topic, I have not noticed sluggishness while transferring with the new TiVo update, but to be fair, I have not had much time sitting in front of the TV lately. If there is a particular sequence that seems sluggish, I would be glad to compare performance with transfers active vs idle).
I did have a problem with the Mini not recognizing the updated Roamio Plus, but that seems to have resolved itself. ( - perhaps after rebooting Roamio, or maybe before - the Mini was able to get to Netflix and I didn't want to interrupt those actually watching something.)

IMNSHO (and moyekj may disagree), the frequency of this problem does not justify modifying KMTTG to handle it. On the rare occasions when it does happen, why not just change the name of the existing computer file? If it is happening that frequently on your system, I suggest that you have a problem that needs to be addressed at the source.

One such instance of this that I did notice was a series of 5-10 min shorts on TCM called "Carson On TCM". They didn't have episode names or anything unique in the title. When they ran, they often played them back to back. Each short was just long enough to show the highlights of one interview. Recording them on the Tivo was not a problem, however only the first in the list would download with KMTTG. Then the rest just didn't get processed. I had to change the HDD filename of each, one by one, in order to download each next one.

Agreed not a common problem. It could take a bit of creativity to get the program to distinguish between cases where to apply and where not to apply.

This was where I had included the date and time of the recordings in the filenaming. So for example a "Carson recorded @4/1 10:30" would show file name as "Carson 2014.04.01-22:30..TiVo"
" " " @4/1 10:35" becomes "Carson 2014.04.01-22:35.TiVo", Etc.

Very small chance of overwriting files, Unless there's another Tivo with the same recordings.

My Filenaming scheme in KMTTG....

Code:
[mainTitle] - [EpisodeNumber] - (RAW) - [episodeTitle] [year].[monthNum].[mday]-[hour].[min]

Feature request:

Is it possible to add a reboot option in kmttg?

There are times where i go into kmttg to force a network connect in order to get guide data or more recently, new firmware and it wont connect because it says that the box is pending a restart.

Figured it would be a handy option to have. thanks.

I have not found an available RPC command for TiVo reboot.

Thanks, good to hear that you looked into it.

is there a Format command? 'cause when you hold down the format button on the front for a few, the tivo reboots.

Not that I'm aware of (aside from the virtual remote buttons of course). But it wouldn't help if there were since there is no way to control the length of a virtual remote button press anyway.

If there were only one file to rename, I would probably agree with you. Typically, I have 5 - (prog.mpg.txt, prog.mpg, prog.edl, prog.txt and prog.VPrj). And renaming breaks the link from inside the VPrj file. I'm not saying that there aren't opportunities for improving my workflow - if I ever get around to actually confirming cut points and deleting commercials, several terabytes of disk space might get freed. I'm just looking for opinions on features that might be useful.

I think the "right click / download as..." would work reasonably well for this purpose (but not for the non-interactive case).

Code:
[mainTitle] - [EpisodeNumber] - (RAW) - [episodeTitle] [year].[monthNum].[mday]-[hour].[min]
Until last fall, when I discovered that providing TiVo account info gave much more reliable season/episode numbers for my S3, I had included date (but not time) stamps in filenames. Since then, I've been using
Code:
[mainTitle][/][mainTitle][" (" movieYear ")"][" - " SeriesEpNumber][" - " episodeTitle]
A nice improvement would be if I could get all movies into a separate "Movies" directory (or even better, Movies/Comedy, Movies/Drama, etc), but I don't think the syntax supports that. Since I usually download a batch of movies at a time, it probably wouldn't be that much extra effort to swap filename spec to replace first [mainTitle] with "Movies".
Thinking a bit, a possible syntax might look like:
Code:
[[movieYear.aka.IF]["Movies.aka.THEN"][mainTitle.aka.ELSE]]
And just to be clear... I'm not complaining, but rather thinking out loud about features that might be useful. I appreciate the feedback from other points of view.

Hi there,

Sorry for such a basic question about kmttg but I am new to this. I started reading this thread but there are hundreds of pages!

I have a TiVo here in New Zealand and wanted to transfer programs to my PC but found out I needed to buy the Home Networking Package including Media Access Key some time ago - but they stopped selling that a few months ago. So I have no Media Access Key.

I read about KMTTG and wondered whether it might work for me if I don't have a media access key - do I still need a media access key to use kmttg?

Cheers, Paul

Yes you need MAK. Without MAK you won't be able to transfer programs to your PC using any program.

Are you sure the key isn't available until after you purchase the (now unavailable) package? Does it not show up in either of the places referred to in the link below(particularly the first option in the tivo menus)? If it doesn't show on the tivo, is anything else shown in its place?

/edit: Strike the above. Guess you really don't have any options: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=513535. That sucks, sorry if I wasted any of your time.

thanks for the replies. I guess I am out of luck. The home networking package is no longer available in Australia or New Zealand, so no MAK. Apparently I just missed out as they removed it from their on-line shop a month or 2 ago. Unbelievable!

Thanks!

Is anyone else unable to delete programs on the TiVo from KMTTG now?

I get the same result whether pressing Delete key or right click and select Delete. I know that delete was working fine before I upgraded, but I have not yet gone back to the prior version (at least not until I try the new order for processing auto-transfers).

I installed the latest version of kmttg. The program looks great and communicates with my TiVo box. I can see the shows recorded on TiVo.
I am not able to transfer a file to the TiVo box. When I select the file to be transferred and click on Start nothing happens. There is no error message. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Have you configured it? Specifically, under File->Configure...->File Settings, do you have the .tivo output dir set?

kmttg is for transferring files from TiVo to PC, not the other way round. Sounds like from your description you are using the FILES tab and trying to transfer files from PC to TiVo. You need pyTivo for that.

I get the same result whether pressing Delete key or right click and select Delete. I know that delete was working fine before I upgraded, but I have not yet gone back to the prior version (at least not until I try the new order for processing auto-transfers).

Still works for me. Latest version of kmttg and TiVo Roamio s/w.

Are you able to delete when directly accessing the TiVo? Have you tried rebooting the TiVo?
