You have kmttg installed under "c:\Program Files" dir which is not recommended with Windows Vista or later that impose restrictions on that folder. Also looks like you may be trying to decrypt a .TiVo file downloaded with TiVo Desktop which may have "Fast Transfers" option enabled and hence it could be a TS .TiVo file which tivodecode can't handle. You can run mediainfo on the .TiVo file to check for sure.

Did you check the .TiVo file you were trying to encrypt with mediainfo? If it's mpeg TS container then tivodecode won't work and you'll have to re-download with "fast transfers" disabled.

"G:\My Tivo Recordings\" would seem to be the problem directory, in terms of permissions, unless it's the permissions of the .TiVo file itself. (Why this should be so, I don't know.)

Yes, good point. By error message it appears to be file read permission problem, but then I'm not sure how he was able to include the file in FILES list to begin with...

Ran Mediainfo and it isn't in a .ts container. Turns out some there were some restrictions on my external (G drive so I added permissions and reran kttmg and things seem to be working.

Quick question, I hope:

1. pyTivo installed and functional, sees TiVo and push/pull no issue
2. kmttg installed - can PULL programs, but PUSH option is GREYED
3. pyTivo is properly configured in kmttg to point to pytivo.conf
4. TiVo can see the local files in their prescribed locations

When I select a CUT file to send back to TiVo, PUSH is not enabled.

Any suggestions to enable?

Is it setup similar to this? You may also need to run auto_push.jar.

Added "pytivo.conf" to the path. I could have sworn I had it there previously, but caused issues elsewhere.

Anyway, PUSH is now enabled.

Thanks!

I have shows on my PC which I had transfered with kmttg and now I'd like to push some .tivo files with closed captioning back to my Premiere but I'm unable to, not sure what I'm doing wrong. Do I need the tivo metadata files for this process? Thanks.

KMTTG does not do pushes, instead, it uses PyTivo for that action.

Unless they are TS container .TiVo files, if you want captions preserved they need to be returned to TiVo in TS container for captions to work for series 4 or later units (TiVo bug). Suggested way to do this:
1. From kmttg FILES tab add the .TiVo files and enable "metadata" & "decrypt" tasks and run.
2. Make sure you are using recent version of wmcbrine pyTivo and have ts=on in pyTivo.conf [server] section.
3. With pyTivo running now when you pull the decrypted shows pyTivo will remux to TS container and captions will be preserved.

I don't think PS .TiVo files with ts=on get remuxed to TS container by pyTivo but I'm not sure about that and haven't tried it. I'm assuming .TiVo files are left alone which is why I suggest decrypting to .mpg.

How would I use PyTivo within KMTTG to push those files?

What happens when you try to use the pyTiVo Browser interface to push?

If you are attempting to push .TiVo files you need to configure pyTivo to tell it where tivodecode is since .TiVo files can't be pushed directly.

KMTTG completes push
but pyTivo.py first shows "WARNING: pyTivo.config:tdcat not found" then sends an empty file to the Tivo.

It's under "Global Server Settings" in pyTivo settings. Or you can just put a copy of tivodecode in the "bin" subdirectory of the pyTivo install location.

Edit pyTivo.conf and add following to [server] section and then re-start pyTivo:
tdcat = \full\path\to\tdcat.exe
tivodecode = \full\path\to\tivodecode.exe
(or add it via pyTivo web server localhost:9032)

Or as lpwcomp posted put a copy of tdcat.exe and tivodecode.exe in the pyTivo bin dir.

I added the full path for tivocode and tdcat to the global server settings, saved and restarted pyTivo, now there's no warning but an empty file is sent to Tivo.

You need to get pyTivo side working. The kmttg portion is just sending a request to pyTivo that does all the work. So connect to localhost:9032 and try a push from there and if you still have trouble the pyTivo thread or forums is the right place for pyTivo related questions or issues.
If you are trying to push a TS .TiVo file then that will fail since tivodecode can't handle it properly, but a PULL should work since pyTivo doesn't need tivodecode for that.

Also worth noting that a push can't use TS format (it will get reencoded or remuxed), so can't convey captions, at all.

v1p0h version released

v1p0h version has been released. Highlight of this release is a new Search++ button as part of Remote Search tab that brings up Advanced Search dialog. This allows you to perform advanced searches similar to TiVo wishlists but with extra filtering capabilities such as Favorite channels only or specific channels only. You can save/load search configurations.
Roamio 20.3.6 software introduced HDUI Wishlists screens which crippled some of the basic non auto record wishlist functionality of the TiVos, and supposedly series 4 units will get that software update soon. So this was my attempt at avoiding having to use that crippled interface for my non auto record wishlists so that all show scheduling can now be done from kmttg. This also has advantage of keeping wishlist setup off the TiVos and portable between them, so one less thing to worry about losing when changing TiVo hardware.

There are some other enhancements, changes and fixes. Consult release_notes Wiki for all the details.

I know there were issues at one point, but is it safe to update to the latest java now or are there still problems?

Can not start kmttg auto transfer

Ok I can not get kmttg auto transfer to run. So far I have uninstalled and installed the service. I also uninstalled kmttg and reinstalled kmttg. When I try to start the service I get this "The kmttg service was launched, but failed to start". I looked under services and tried it there but a pop with this came up "Windows could not start the kmttg service on local computer. Error 1607: the process terminated unexpectedly.
It was working with Windows 8. This mourning I updated to 8.1. And now I get this error.
How can I fix this problem with out going back to the old windows 8?

Check the relevant kmttg auto.log.# file for any error messages and/or clues. If there aren't any messages then it means Windows is not able to launch kmttg for some reason.
