Tried using KMTTG to create metadata files for episodes I've copied over from my TiVo to my computer already. These are .tivo files.

However, it never wants to create a metadata file if the file is already on my computer. It works fine if I'm copying from my TiVo itself. I'd really like to create some metadata files for the programs I already have, but it seems to not want to work.

I could probably do it by hand with info out there on the net, but that's an epicly huge pain in the backside.

Am I doing something wrong, or does it not create metadata files for files you add via the "files" tab"? Below is what I see error wise, but I don't think it's a lot of use..

Code:
>> CREATING J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT)_cut.mpg.txt ...
C:\Users\Joe\Documents\kmttg\tivodecode\tivodecode.exe --mak MAK -D -x "J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT).TiVo" 
Failed to generate metadata file: J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT)_cut.mpg.txt
Exit code: 0

Yes it's supposed to work and is usually very fast. Below is an example.
Check write permissions under J:\TiVo or temporarily try a different location under C: volume to see if it's permissions problem.
Code:
>> CREATING C:\home\dvd\The Americans - (s01e01) Pilot Three-Minute Replay_ts.TiVo.txt ...
"C:\home\kmttg java testing\tivodecode\tivodecode.exe" --mak MAK -D -x "C:\home\dvd\The Americans - (s01e01) Pilot Three-Minute Replay_ts.TiVo" 
metadata job completed: 0:00:00
---DONE--- job=metadataTivo output=C:\home\dvd\The Americans - (s01e01) Pilot Three-Minute Replay_ts.TiVo.txt
You can also cut and paste the tivodecode call in a "cmd" window to perhaps get a better clue about what's going wrong.

I didn't realize you could make a metadata file after the fact (I had thought it was pulled from the tivo). But since you're creating it before I actually download the file, I guess you're getting it a different way.

Still interested in getting to the root of that java error.

I'm unable to reproduce the error for any of the posted scenarios thus far. There may be certain settings I don't have set causing the problem which is why I asked for a config.ini (redacted of sensitive info or perhaps as a PM).

J:\TiVo is my primary TiVo drive. It copies all my episodes to that directory before i manually move them elsewhere. I doubt it's a permission issue since all my transfers end up there.

Additionally, if I do anything else like decrypt or adcut, kmttg can write those files there. Just not the metadata.

Also, it can write the metadata file to the same directory if it's pulling from an actual TiVo at the same time. Just not via a locally added one.

Did you try running following from a cmd window (replace MAK with your actual 10 digit MAK)?
Code:
C:\Users\Joe\Documents\kmttg\tivodecode\tivodecode.exe --mak MAK -D -x "J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT).TiVo"
It should produce a couple of xml files.

Oops. Forgot. I'll go do that now.

Edit: It left two files in my j:\Tivo directory (I ran the command from there). They are:

chunk-01-0001.xml
chunk-02-0002.xml

Looking at the contents, the info in the second one would be in a resultant metadata file is in there, but the file format is not a metadata file. Probably not the right file(s) - or so it seems to me. Let me know if you want me to send those over.

After xml files are generated kmttg parses 2nd one to generate metadata file. Zip them up so I can take a look. If xml generation is working I doubt there's an xml parsing issue, but never know...

From looking inside the files, I kind of figured it grabbed info out of the second, as the first wasn't really readable.

See attached for zip file.

Open up a blank browser window and drag the xml file into it. It should be readable that way.

When I said "readable", I meant "human readable". Sorry. Late - tired.

That's how I saw what was in there originally.

Try running the tivodecode command from kmttg installation directory, since that's where kmttg would run it from.

Left the same two files, only this time in the kmttg directory.

All the pieces seem to be working then. Try setting kmttg config-Program Options-metadata files = "last" and run again from FILES mode with just "metadata" task enabled and nothing else. (Should produce .TiVo.txt file if it works).

You mean this...



Then this..

Quote:

Gave me the same original error.

If you meant something else, let me know.

NOTE: That metadata files option was set to "all" previously.

NOTE 2: Oh, and the MAK is not blank locally, I just did that to the image for posting here.

NOTE 3: Just realized what time it is. Need to get to bed, as I have to get up in 6hours to get the kids ready for school. Will look again tomorrow. Tkx for helping!

Next time replace your kmttg.jar with one in this zip file instead and then run it again (has more error printing which should print more details for any error):

Aren't the differing extensions relevant here?

BTW, you can also create metadata files with pyTivo:

Code:
python \pyTivo\metadata.py foo.tivo >foo.tivo.txt

The differing extensions are because he had "all" set for metadata setting and "Ad Cut" task selected in addition to "metadata" task. Don't know if that was intentional which is why I suggested changing to "last" and only have "metadata" task enabled if his intent is just to create 1 metadata file.

OK, just tried it. Still failed, but here's what that beta kmttg told me:

Sounds like a timing issue - the xml file still hasn't completed being written when kmttg checks for an empty file (or maybe an issue with empty file checker). For this version I removed the empty file check, so see if this one works:

size=1025.10 MB elapsed=0:18:10 (7.89 Mbps)

I was wondering from this example of a download off KMTTG, the Mbps shown is?

average transfer speed,
resulted speed at the end of the download,
or something else.

OK, after I got the approval on GDrive, I just tried it. Still didn't create it, but the error is different.

Code:

Edit: I just noticed that the first line of this, and the "Failed to generate" lines in the error have different locations for the .txt file it is creating. Could that have anything to do with it?

It first says it is going to create it here: CREATING J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT).TiVo.txt ...

Then it says it failed to generate it here: J:\TiVo\Brooklyn Nine-Nine\Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Old School (Recorded Nov 12, 2013, KDFWDT).TiVo.txt

Another suggestion:

Can we have the show title, episode title, and episode number in their own columns, that way they can be sorted.

FYI, Joe Siegler's problem turned out to be because he was instructing Windows to start kmttg in c:\windows directory and tivodecode doesn't have permission to write there but wasn't giving any error messages about failure to create xml files, so kmttg has no way to know there was a problem writing those files. Joe changed star dir to the kmttg install dir and problem is solved.

Is there a way to get kmttg to open by default on the [Tivo] tab? For some reason, it now opens on the FILES tabs...

It's supposed to open on same tab as you last closed kmttg on.

That is the behavior I used to see, but I don't any longer. Regardelss of the tab I use, I close the app and it reopens on the FILES TAB.
I launch the app through a shortcut: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "C:\KMTTG\kmttg.jar"

Is there any parameter I should add or some config file I need to edit/correct?

What's supposed to be happening is when you close kmttg it writes c:\Users\<YourLogin>\.kmttg_settings file which saves various GUI related things including TiVo name after <tab> line which is the TiVo tab to open to. Perhaps you should just delete that file as maybe something got corrupted. Then try closing and opening kmttg again. If kmttg is having trouble writing the file at that location that could be the problem.
