MGMHD on FiOS. Nothing xfers past 300MB

I didn't notice this problem on my S3 or Elite. I've tried to transfer multiple recordings, and rerecorded many programs to try and get good copies. The result is always the same: The transfer starts slow, remains slow, then dies at around 300MB. Anyone else served out of of Burlington, MA notice the same?

I'm using curl with tivodecode.

I've seen this when attempting to transfer a H.264 show using the PS format. H.264 only works with the TS format.

I don't know how curl works, but you can log into the TiVo directly by going to...

https://<tivo ip>/nowplaying/index.html

when prompted for a user name and password enter tivo for the user name and your MAK for the password.

On the resulting page you have the option to download each show as either PS or TS, try TS first. If it doesn't work try PS instead. If neither works then try rebooting the TiVo and try again.

Just found the version of tivodecode that does TS on 64-bit Linux in the TTG forum... lack of that was a problem previously, leaving me stuck with PS. TS seems to be working just fine.

Beware that version that does TS is not 100%. It can cause minor errors to be introduced into the video.

What actually happens with H.264 channels (which MGM is now, on Fios) when you try to do a program stream extraction is, you only get the soundtrack.
