    Its the trueHD audio track as the first audio that is mucking up the direct transfer. Also mkv is getting remuxed on the fly. Put the video track and the single AC3 audio track into an IMSA compliant streamable MP4 file and it will transfer to tivo as is and play just fine.

    In the second file there is no tivo compatible audio and its being transcoded on the fly. Again, one video track, one ac3 audio track in streamable mp4 file and both of these should transfer direct and play just fine.

    @jcthorne - Thanks for the info!

    For my money, pyTivo's value is being able to transfer "almost" any video to my TiVo.

    I can achieve this by having pyTivo apply logic to transcode any file incompatible with the TiVo with TS=Off. This works very well for me now.

    I guess what I’m asking is can the pyTivo logic be improved to apply the standards you mention above to other video files. Can pyTivo do more to avoid transcoding video and audio and still have the video transfer correctly?

    For example, could pyTivo recognize the 1st sample as having to remux the container, not transcode the video, and transcode only the audio and have the durations match after transfer?

    Are there other ffmpeg parameters that would fix the duration issue or is this an issue on the TiVo side that pyTivo/ffmpeg can't address?

    @Dan203 Just wanted to say thanks for this. Did the Hydra downgrade and this was crucial in saving and restoring programs. Appreciate all the effort!

    Newbie here. How do I go about adding parameters to ffmpeg when using pyTivo Desktop.

    Never mind I guess this is the answer: Easier to use pyTivo

    Do I add the line "ffmpeg_pram = -muxdelay 0" or just
    "-muxdelay 0" in the Additional FFmpeg Commands box?

    John's...
    Probably the latter, but I use pyTivo TOS(The Original Software) rather that pyTivo Desktop.

    The latter ""-muxdelay 0" in the Additional FFmpeg Commands box" worked for me and fixed the issue I was having with my Playon recordings. Thanks.

    Whenever I try to download a show using the Program mode, it seems to start and after a period, it just hangs there and does nothing. Not sure why it keeps occurring but has happened every time I've tried to download and decode with tivo libre. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Are you downloading from PC to TiVo or TiVo to PC?

    The messages indicate you are trying to transfer a .tivo file from the PC to the TiVo. It wants to decrypt it and cannot find tivodecode.

    Is TLC possibly H.264 on your cable system? If it is, then it must be downloaded in TS as PS doesn't support H.264.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm downloading from TiVo to PC. I'm on Hydra so no option of the other way.

    I don't believe TLC is MPEG4/H.264 on FiOS but I'm not 100% sure. It's not one of the listed channels on MPEG4 in a master list (link below) and I also get the same issue on other local channels that should be MPEG2 (ABC and FOX). I was able to download the shows in TS format though.

    You should always be able to download in TS format, then you can examine the decrpyted file to see if it is mpeg2 or h.264. I don't think there are any channels which are sometimes one and sometimes the other and I haven't heard of any h.264 channels ever going back to being mpeg2.

    So you can find out which channels are mpeg2, and use PS to download from them until it fails because it has been switched to h.264. All other channels you'll have to keep using TS to download.

    Thanks... The TiVo Desktop actually uses tivo-libre. You think that might be the issue?

    The Video PID, which is on the "DVR Diagnostics" page will tell you whether a given tuner is on an MPEG2 or H.264 channel.

    The fact that you are having problems with locals, which should still be MPEG2, indicates it is probably a different problem. It's entirely possible that TiVo has changed something in Hydra that has screwed things up for PS transfers.

    You might try downloading w/o decrypting, just to see what happens.

    I just tried another episode (a shorter episode) with decrypting (and without decrypting) with TiVo libre and that works fine. I'm now wondering if it's because of the size of the episode (was about 11GB)
