Tivo Desktop & pytivo refuse to push full recordings back to my Roamio

I have tivo desktop running, and last week i was able to move a recording from my pc to the tivo roamio with no problems.

But the other day I tried several recordingsand it cuts off at 1/2 on some movies and 85% on others. I can watch the videos fine on windows media player but it never transfers to the tivo intact.


I tried pytivo and it did the same thing but on the command prompt it had an error 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

I am dumbfounded at what to do. I can transfer from the tivo to pc via tivo desktop with no problems but going back from pc to tivo bombs out.

When I go to the end of the recording it says transfer interuppted, but the connection is stable so not sure.

I checked the transfer log under network in TIVO and it states the same 96.0 MB transfer rate so it looks like an average speed for my MOCA connection.

Anyone have similiar experience that can direct a fix?

Thanks for any help

"An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host" means that the TiVo is rejecting the file, due to what it regards as bad data. Do you get the same results with the same files every time? That is, one file stops at 85%, and if you try the same file again, it stops at the same place? If so, I'd assume the original files are corrupt, or just out of spec. (The fact that you can play them back on the PC doesn't contradict this. Almost any PC software player is much more tolerant than the TiVo is.)

If that's the issue, you may be able to resolve it by forcing pyTivo to transcode the file. (You shouldn't be seeing this kind of error unless it's not transcoding.)

It stopped at the same place as yesterday . This was happened with pytivo and tivo desktop.

How can i force it to transcode?


On a side note i tried streambaby but when i click on my video it says please wait then says video not encoded or something like that and this is what streambaby reports in the cmd line
StreamBabyStream[#1,uri=null] warning: "resource 2057 not found"

I turned off my firewall hoping that was the cause but it didn't make any difference

Fugazi70,
I'm having the same problem with transferring shows that were copied from my Roamio to my PC using Desktop Plus but when I try to bring them back they start and then stop at the same point on different uploads. Here is the scenario;

=> I bought a new Roamio Plus (1T hard drive) and purchased a 3T hard drive that I put in last Friday.
=> On Thursday night I copied about 10 shows that I had on my Roamio to my PC using Desktop Plus.
=> After the upgrade on Friday I tried to copy the 10 shows from my PC back to the upgraded Roamio and 9 of the 10 would not copy fully. Some only a few minutes others only seconds before they stopped. When they stopped I would delete and try to re-upload and they would stop in the same spot.

Reading what you said here makes sense. I do have VideoRedo and will use that tonight to copy to video format which I do before I burn DVDs.

QUESTION => Is there a different format or should I just copy to video and then load back up to the Roamio?

Thanks.

I used quick stream fix and left the format as .tivo. It would fix about 99% of my videos.

I didn't purchase the software so far, i just used the trial. I am debating just watching the videos on my pc instead of converting and sending them back to the tivo box.

Hey Fugazi70,
Thanks for your response. I ran the 9 downloads on my PC that would not upload to my Tivo through VideoRedo with the output being .tivo and all 9 uploaded without a problem after this conversion. No doubt VideoRedo is able to handle the corrupted files (sectors), clean them up and then rebuild a clean output file. On your thought process about watching on your PC versus converting and sending back to the Tivo I think VideoRedo is great for handling Tivo files and burning but as you stated it would be up to your own preference as to if you wanted to watch on your PC or your TV realizing that you would have the overhead of converting the files and then uploading if you wanted to watch on your TV. I personally like watching programs on my TV rather than PC. Good Luck.
