Hi moyekj, it seems that the Tivo stall may have been from a corrupt recording, so canceling the curl process and blocking transfer of the file, by just leaving the partial failed transfer on the computer drive, should keep kmttg from downloading the problem file again.

It would be great to have some form of retrying. Along the same lines, it would be awesome if partial files could be deleted when there was an error in any of the steps.

I can refresh the playlist fine in gui, but the service logs this (I am running v0p7j beta):

Check again: the kmttg output dir location and pyTivo share path do not match just as the log file is saying:

output=E:\kmttg\home\Encode\...

share=My Videos path=e:\KMMTG\Home\Encode

Aside from the obvious KMMTG typo case also matters, so "home" vs "Home" is also wrong as would be "kmttg" vs "KMTTG"

Make sure to setup kmttg service with proper account. See auto_transfers Wiki, specifically the "CONFIGURING ACCOUNT TO RUN KMTTG WINDOWS SERVICE" section. Configure service to use same account that you are using to run the GUI where it is working.

That's already in next version with code checked into SVN. You can configure kmttg for how many times to try again and interval of time to try between failed download attempts. I've been too busy with real work to contemplate an official release any time soon but if this really is an issue and you need a fix P.M. me for a beta version.

Ooops I always overlook the obvious....I just changed the spelling on the main folder but didn't correct my other typo.

Rerunning test again.

moyekj - I just found kmttg and love it.

I have been using it for a couple weeks. All of a sudden, in the middle of downloading a show it stopped. After numerous attempts at restarting, I finally decided to remove the program, download the zip again, and reload it.

Now, it doesn't work at all. Any suggestions - I get this red message:

If you keep getting Server Busy busy message from the TiVo server then you usually have to reboot it to fix the problem.

Moyekj, for months now I have been wondering why kmttg stops downloading for a couple of hours, and now I realize it is because the active job limit can become tied up with qsfixes, would it be possible to have a config that allows you to set active tivo download active job limit separate from qsfix job limits?

Downloads are not affected by "active job limit" setting. There are restrictions on downloads to limit them to 1 per TiVo at a time but that is unrelated to active job limit. The Auto Transfers loop for a particular TiVo will wait for all jobs associated with that TiVo to complete before entering the next loop, so even when all downloads are complete there could be non-download tasks that must be completed before the next auto transfers loop begins. i.e. in pseudo-code currently algorithm is:
Code:
loop
 foreach tivo
   if all jobs related to this tivo finished
      sleep X minutes
   else
      launch new jobs once X minute sleep is reached
   endif   
 end foreach

 sleep 2 seconds
 check all running jobs

end loop

Great program!

I am having only one issue getting kmttg setup with VideoRedo V4. I am getting an error message that Could not locate automation class named VideoRedo.VideoRedo.silent

This is followed by Encountered problems obtaining encoding profiles from VideoRedo.

So, right now I am just downloading the tivo file and then manually using VRD.


I have specified my path to my VRD installation properly (by double clicking and browsing for the appropriate folder). Any ideas? I am running Vista.

Otherwise it is working great- much preferred over Desktop...

Thanks

Consult the VideoRedo_configuration Wiki page for tips on solving that kind of issue.

The section entitled RUNNING VIDEOREDO FROM KMTTG is relevant if running kmttg GUI. Basically try running VideoRedo GUI as Administrator at least once so as to register VideoRedo.VideoRedoSilent in registry which is what is needed to run VideoRedo in silent mode. If you still can't get things working then in kmttg configuration under VideoRedo tab turn on Allow multiple VideoRedo jobs at once option and that should work since it uses the graphical mode instead.

Sorry if asked and answered, but is it possible to single thread kmttg's "to do" list? For example, while a program is qsfixing or comskipping, curl kicks in and downloads the next .tivo file, saving time. If the kmttg service has been stopped for awhile, there could be several jobs added to the queue, resulting in quite a few .tivo files on the harddrive, waiting for their turn to be processed. For those with limited space but ample time, could there be a "space saver" mode that wouldn't download the next .tivo file until after the last step is performed? In my case, that would be a custom command that I run.

Thanks! If it's already possible, I won't open an issue at code.google.com...

Nevermind. Found this in the wiki:

Quote:
Check Available Disk Space

If this option is enabled then kmttg will check that destination drive has more than the space available defined in Min req space (GB) field before running jobs. The available space calculation currently also subtracts estimated space to be taken by any ongoing .TiVo file downloads. (Currently no other jobs other than downloads are considered when estimating space to be consumed).

OK, that did it. Thanks for the responses. I am stumped as to why it took me so long to discover this. Great, great program!

I'll chime in with the others: you should accept donations for this. If not for yourself, because you are already independently wealthy , then for a charity of your chosing.

All of a sudden I keep getting this msg when I try to copy some programs from my Tivo to my computer:

read chunk data: No error
seek: No error
Encryption by QUALCOMM


All my programs are OTA. Any idea what's going on? Thanks.

That's likely an incomplete/partial TiVo file that tivodecode is operating on. You can use Mediainfo to examine the TiVo file and see what program length is listed or if you are on Windows and have TiVo Desktop installed you can try playing TiVo in WMP and see what program length is reported. It's likely you have an incomplete download.

Hi moyekj,
what are the other active jobs that associate with a tivo, that could stop curl from moving on to the next download? Is it possible that the Tivo job gets stuck on a qsfix and doesn't proceed with downloads? In the morning I usually have 8 stuck videoredo processes that are trying to qsfix and no curl processes. These are qsfixes that have already been done, and kmttg is repeating them because I have history.log erased every night.
I have these errors:

No, that's not it. This is now happening with all my files. The recordings are complete. Here's the msg I'm getting now. Is it saying it can't communicate with Tivo? It's reading my NPL fine when I press "Refresh" and I can pull files from my computer to the Tivo from the Tivo, so my computer and Tivo are communicating.

I think things would be a lot better if qsfix jobs are not associated with download jobs, ie, if they functioned independantly
also if there was a separate qsfix history log that identified the written files on the pc, instead of identifying the Tivo id's, because the Tivo ids are too general, I think that is what tvap does?

or have kmttg check for already written mpg with same name before it starts a qsfix job,
p7j beta is still overwriting mpgs that have already been qsfixed if they are not listed in the history log

That is your problem. Your TiVo is not allowing downloads to happen due to "Server Busy" error. If you look at the associated .TiVo files they they will be tiny and contain html text listed as part of the kmttg error. You need to reboot your TiVo to fix the problem. Note that next release already has better detection of download errors and ability to retry downloads automatically but I haven't had time to finish up and publish that release yet.

These are qsfixes that have already been done, and kmttg is repeating them because I have history.log erased every night.
I have these errors:

Why are you erasing history.log file? Is it because of problems of shows with non-unique ProgramId entries? If so you could benefit significantly from enhancement described in this issue that CrispyCritter devised:

For running VideoRedo in service mode you have to configure service to run with proper account. See the VideoRedo_configuration Wiki.

cool! let me try 93a!
the failed videoredos are not because of account, I have the service configured correctly. It has something to do with qsfixing files that already have been qsfixed?

awesome program! this is reason enough to keep my tivo instead of moxi.

One request: in Auto transfer config, can we make the time filter option to be not global or an option for it not to be global but for each individual shows?

moyekj, what are the non-download jobs that a tivo must do before it is freed up to download again? sometimes, the tivo doesn't download for hours. Is it the qsfix? Is it possible to keep the tivo downloading at all times? thanks for all your hard work!
