    FYI, I think kmttg has more options.

    Which is a factor, I believe, Archivo's developer conceded, intending to create a simpler app.

    MUCH simpler with a much more elegant interface.

    New user of Archivo here... The first time I tried, I successfully archived a 7 GB file from my bolt to a win 10 pro 64 PC. However, it using about 80% CPU on handbreak32. It says it will take over an hour for compressing. I am running an Intel Core2 Quad CPU with 8 GB ram. Is this insufficient for the task? Would handbreak 64 be better? suggestions? Can I kill the job and retain the uncompressed version of the file? Thanks.

    thanks,

    Charley

    That's an incredibly old machine - literally ten years old. As long as you're OK with letting it crank away for an hour (is there a downside? Let it run at night?) then there is no issue. Just know that a modern CPU (say, an i7-8700k) is many, many times faster.

    Is Straylightlabs.com down? I can't connect.... is Archivo no more?

    That would be a shame as the author had done a lot of good work between this and TivoLibre. He was last seen here August 11, 2016. :(

    You can still download the software, here, fflewddur/archivo
    I doubt that the x64 version would be much quicker on that machine, but you could try it. I still use archivo on a much faster/newer machine but I have it pretty much automated and don't pay much attention. I am pretty certain if you search the settings, you will be able to save the uncompressed file but these things are LARGE.
    This software is not perfect, but considering the ease of use....it works for me.

    I don't know if the workaround will translate, but a similar issue was encountered by those using TiVo Desktop. See here:

    Those two certificate files don't seem to help fix the Archivo problem. It still stays in an infinite loop checking for recordings and my TivoDesktop works fine.

    I don't think he meant those 2 certificate files would fix Archivo but updating the certificates used in Archive in a similar fashion would probably fix the issue.
