I was thinking a long while about a shortcut for going in and out of a folder on KMTTG. Is there or could you add in the Unshifted < (comma) and >(period) for out and in respectfully. It may seem like the lazy way to navigate the NPL, but it can work quicker instead of having to always click that back button.

It works. I do see a new anomaly though. Now the title is displayed twice in the NPL. Or should I say, repeated twice on one entry:

Legend of the Lost - Legend of the Lost

I can live with this much better than the gibberish that was in the file showing up but if you know why its getting formatted this way, would love to know. Perhaps a pytivo setting sending two meta data fields for the title?

pyTivo does read the tags, but metadata in a .txt file takes precedence over everything else, except .TiVo metadata.

jcthorne, how are you transferring these to the TiVo? Are you using push? I could see the push using the metadata, but a pull with ts=on would probably result in only pyTivo metadata file being used (it would be remuxed to ts container during pull presumably losing the mp4 container metadata) and hence more desirable.

Not sure which tags are being concantated as kmttg is writing the :title data so several places. Its also still in the metadata txt file for pytivo to read so no idea which two pieces of data are being strung together to cause the duplicate. But its only in the txt file once under title :

No using kmttg to push via pytivo after running atomic parsley on the file, also within kmttg. I very rarely pull video.

Looks like kmttg is telling atomicparsley to set TVShowName also to the title even though this is not a tv show.

I do have pytivo set to concantate tvseries and episode name for the title. Perhaps this combination is what is causing this?

If so, can kmttg NOT set TVShowName to if its a movie?

I think you should erase all tags with --metaEnema and then either rerun Atomicparsley or not use it at all, especially since you don't use iTunes, which is what Atomicparsley is really for.

I'd actually be fine with that answer too if it were an option in kmttg. Really dont want to add an additional command line step to processing each vid for pushing to tivo. Besides, there is a side benefit to having the correct tags in the mp4 file, iTunes is not the only program that uses them. My WDTVlive does too and we use that in our motorhome since a tivo will not work without a live network connection. We also have a few friends with the WDTV device that use my files once in a while.

You can stop kmttg from running AtomicParsley by renaming the folder in kmttg installation to something else such that it can't find the program.
I've changed atomic code to only set TVShowName for episodic shows (which probably will generate some complaints from iTunes users eventually).

Ok thanks. Look forward to trying that one. And hoping it does not mess up itunes.

I think, since his problem is with movies, the best thing is to leave episodic as is and get rid of --TVShowName and add --title to non-episodic


After trying the zip file beta, I see that, for episodic, --title is being run twice, first as episodeTitle from the metadata file and second as title from the metadata file


Code:
--overWrite --stik "TV Show" --title MazelTov --year 2014-07-24T07:00:00Z --description "Daniel disappears on an unusual errand; Janets family surprises her some unexpected birthday gifts. " --longdesc "Daniel disappears on an unusual errand; Janets family surprises her some unexpected birthday gifts. " --contentRating TV-14 --title Rectify --TVShowName Rectify --artist Rectify --albumArtist Rectify --TVEpisode 206 --TVEpisodeNum 06 --tracknum 206 --TVSeasonNum 2 --album "Rectify, Season 2" --TVNetwork SUNDANC -d 1/1

OK thanks for catching that. It's now corrected in source code. --title=title only used for movies. --title=episodeTitle will still be used for episodic shows.

Pushing with pytivo still results in a double title in the NPL. Perhaps the answer is for pytivo NOT to concantate title to whatever when the item being pushed has isEpisode set to false and only use title in that case?

Update on the double title. The atomicparsley updates in kmttg DID fix the problem, on the TIVO NPL, kmttg was and still is displaying these same entries with the double titles on my pc though. Odd but I can live with it.

Thanks for everyone's help last night, much appreciated.

Concatenating the title with anything is not a thing that pyTivo does, unless maybe you're using one of the modified templates from here?

Whenever I transfer something from my Tivo to my computer using kmttg I've always done the conversion to mpg with no problems. Now on my desktop and notebook (Windows 8.1) the files play audio only, no picture, in both Daum PotPlayer and Windows Media Center. On my home theater media player (Popcorn Hour) I get a picture but no sound. What could be the problem? Thanks.

Missing codecs on your Windows machine is the problem there. If you install VideoLAN VLC for example it will play them without issue since it doesn't rely on Windows codecs for playback.

moyeky - the problem where auto transfers gets stuck in a loop when the videoredo review task is waiting has returned. Not sure how that happened unless you removed the code that was handling it? I know we had fixed it a few months back...

I haven't changed anything related to that. The only changes for 1.1b were adding file name override which shouldn't affect anything else:
http://sourceforge.net/p/kmttg/code/3018/

Suggest you try 1.1a but I doubt you will see any difference.
