kmttg does not CONVERT on *.tivo files on my PC

Hi,

I have about 1.5 TB of *.tivo files. I seem to hate to get rid of old TV shows.
I would like to drop my tivo subscription, and convert all of these files to some more usable format.
Something readable by windows media player and /or quicktime. I prefer WMP.

I've been trying to use kmttg, but don't seem to be able to get the right combination of options.

To be clear: KMTTG works FINE for copying and converting files that are still on my tivo.

I'm having trouble converting the ones that have been copied to my PC using Tivo Desktop.

I saw a note in another thread about NOT using "Fast Transfer". It turns out that that box was checked in my Tivo Desktop.

I assume that once my tivo subscription is dropped, I will not be able to watch the *.tivo files ... so, I'm trying to convert them.

I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards,

Pat

Here's one of the error logs:

You would still be able to watch them through Windows Media Player on your pc. I installed Tivo Desktop on four different pc's. I can watch those recordings though my network on them, or even put them on a portable hdd to watch on the road.

I too found out the hard way about "fast transfer". Luckily, I have about 20 - 30 recordings that cannot be converted.

tivodecode can't decrypt these. Assuming you are on Windows platform if you configure kmttg for VideoRedo then it can handle them. If you don't have VideoRedo you can sign up for a fully functional trial version.

This is what I would suggest. VideoReDo works with .tivo files that have been transferred using the "fast" method. The added benefit will be that you can edit the commercials out of the recordings you want to convert.
IIRC, the free trial period lasts for 15 days. If that is not enough time, I can assure you that VideoReDo is well worth the price.

I've been using VideoRedo. It looks like the right solution for me.

Thanks to everyone for their help!
