I actually deleted the file with the intention of starting the process over and seeing if that fixed anything. I'll set it to run tonight and get back to you in the morning. Sorry about that.

I have consistent trouble with shows recorded on The Disney Channel. I don't encode at all. No other channel has given me any sync issues. That I can recall anyway...

Also, I should add that I transferred 3 other movies that were recorded on the same channel, and all 3 of those work with Project X and are currently processing the QS Fix now. I have no idea why that one in particular fails.

ALbino, if you download this zip file and replace your current kmttg.jar with the one contained in the zip file I think it will solve your problem:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0S...it?usp=sharing
I improved mediainfo output parsing to avoid improper video codec detection. The change will be part of next official release.

After this I guess question remains if projectX QS Fix is actually helping or not compared to VRD?

That did solve the problem with Project X, thanks for that. I realize it was a lot of nonsense for a very isolated problem

You're right though, in that Project X didn't fix the sync issues anymore than VRD did. It was worth a shot though. I truly appreciate the help and the work you put into a program that I literally use every day.

Well it led to me fix lazy parsing code so it was worth it. In fact given how the old code was I'm surprised there weren't more issues reported with it.

v1p0j version just released

v1p0j version just released with some enhancements for Slingbox captures (including support for Solo models). Also several bug fixes included in this release.
See release_notes Wiki for details.

Transfers Occasionally Incomplete ?

Occassionally I will attempt a transfer from one of my Tivo's (Premier & Elite ) to another storage location on my network and the transfer will appear as complete but only a partial transfer takes place , i.e. I had a Chicago Fire episode which should have been approx. 6GB in size of which only 700k transferred. I deleted and retried but with exact same result, this has happened with other shows not chronically but when it does subsequent attempts yield identically partial result.. Is this a defect in the file residing on the TiVo or a fluke with the transfer ?..

Thanks for any guidance..

When I see this type of problem, there is typically a glitch in the recording whether it's pixelated or a complete signal drop out. If I play the recording just past the glitch, I can then transfer the remaining portion of the program to another Tivo and then download the remainder of the program from the second Tivo. This does require me to stitch together the partial transfer and the remaining portion before archiving it.

Looking for unencrypted ipa of latest iOS App

If someone has the ability to generate unencrypted ipa of latest iOS App I would appreciate a PM for a download link to it. The Remote RPC certificate and password currently being used in kmttg expire early in 2014 so I need to try and reverse engineer updated ones before that happens. Thanks.

Code:
http IO exception for: http://192.168.1.120:80/download/ABC7%20News%201100AM.TiVo?Container=%2FNowPlaying&id=86&Format=video/x-tivo-mpeg-ts

This is what I got when I tried to download TS from the new Roamio.

The speed on the Roamio under wireless is as high as 34 mbps vs. Tivo HD which gets only about 9 mbps. That's almost 4x the speed.

Feature Requests?

Where's the correct place to request features for kmttg? I'd like very much if there were a preference to set permissions on the files and folders it creates.

And might we have recording durations in the NPL lists we see? I find that handier than file size of the recordings.

Do you not have a "DUR" column?

I have Date, Channel, Size, Show.

Is there a later version than my 1.0?

There's been a "DUR" column showing duration since forever. Probably currently your window is not wide enough to show all columns, so make it wider. Alternatively make the "SHOW" column shorter so that columns to the right of it will come in view.

Nope, I just had an older version. Now I have both DUR and Mbps that I did not have before.

But back to my original question: What's the appropriate way or place to suggest features? I'd really like to have the ability to set perms on the created files and folders.

Here's as good as place as any. Setting permissions is too OS specific action I don't want to add in kmttg. You may be able to make your own script to do it and add it as a "custom" task in kmttg.

FYI I found someone who gave me what I was looking for - thank you very much.

Use umask to set the default permissions.

You could make a wrapper script for kmttg that sets umask and then starts kmttg. Whether Java honors umask properly or not I don't know (in linux I've run into some programs where umask is not honored).

Have you ever tried to contact Tivo directly to see if you could make kmttg 'officially' work instead of having to reverse engineer stuff?

I don't want to rock the boat at the risk of perhaps even losing my TiVo lifetime subscriptions. Contacting TiVo would be may be my last resort if reverse engineering doesn't work anymore, and there is a good chance they wouldn't grant me official certificate + password anyway.

dyld: unknown required load command 0x80000022

What to make of this?
Code:
tivodecode failed (exit code: 133 ) - check command: /Applications/kmttg/tivodecode/tivodecode --mak MAK --no-verify --out "/Users/Marconi/screatch/Days of our Lives .mpg" "/Users/Marconi/scratch/Days of our Lives .TiVo" 
dyld: unknown required load command 0x80000022
Brand new installation.

That sounds easy enough. But I've no idea how to make a wrapper script. Is that a shell script? I'm handy with AppleScript. Perhaps I could use that.

Is your Mac running Intel or PPC hardware? Default now I believe is to use Intel binary for tivodecode for Macs, so if you have PPC hardware you'll have to switch out tivodecode for the PPC binary which I believe is under tivodecode/tivodecode_MacOSX_ppc directory.
