    It sounds to me like @GaryKC would benefit from both knowing 'which Dan' and reading @Dan203 's Main PyTiVo Desktop thread BEFORE just d/l'ng the app and possibly complaining that it too is too slow.

    you went to the wrong place. @Dan203 has created an all in one pytivo desktop installer with a few added features

    pyTivo Desktop

    Yeah, I too don't know why you're converting by default. Just unencrypt the .tivo file, which kmttg can do as part of the download process. Then you're either an mpeg2 file, or for some channels, an mpeg4 file.

    yes I need the files unencrypted but HOW? simply downloading the files using tivo desktop corrupts them beyond being able to use

    I just downloaded the Windows version. Where are you getting an error that it's corrupted?

    Is it corrupted or is it the windows warning that its not signed or is an unsave program when you try to install it?

    Then I suggest you have a computer issue since you're describing corruption of multiple kinds of file on your system.
    as HerronScott says, I also just downloaded pytivo desktop for windows from the following link and it installed just fine http://www.pytivodesktop.com/win32/pyTivo_1.6.12.exe

    You can also use DirectShowDump to decrypt your .tivo files if you can ever resolve your other "corruption" issues.

    However you've not answered any of the questions about your system, CPU, RAM, or even operating system, all those pieces of information would be useful to help you, but if you don't want to do that, then you'll find folks will soon stop helping you, it's a 2-way street.

    How about answering the questions that I asked you in Post #116? I suggested that you do some RESEARCH *BEFORE* you d/l the app and start complaining again. No time, huh? :p
    You need to 'cool down' if you want help. :cool: You sound VERY impatient and your posts don't convey any useful information. :confused: HUNDREDs of folks SUCCESSFULLY use the *FREE* TiVo apps kind and generous members provide here. If YOU'RE having a problem, where do you think the problem lies?
    So, d/l an earlier version. There's v1.6.4 available, I use 1.6.2 so I KNOW that works (but is not longer available). There's also v1.6.7 and v1.6.10 available.

    You just joined TCF today and all 5, thus far, of your posts are negative. If you want MY help, you'll need to change your attitude. I invested a good sum of MY time composing Post #116 and you completely ignored it. :rolleyes:

    You're welcome.

    I would agree with dianebrat that if you are getting corrupted files downloading from 2 different programs/sources (this program and shows from the TiVo) that you likely have a hardware issue with your PC.

    I've been using VideoReDo for many years. It works great converting the .tivo file.

    And pyTivo Desktop now has VideoReDo integration so it can download and convert all in one shot.

    I just installed kmttg. It launches fine and asked me for my MAK key..but I'm not able to access any of the menus at the top (File, Auto Transfers, or Help). When I click on them as soon as I release the mouse button the menu disappears so I can't click on anything. I'm running the latest version of Java and I'm on Windows 10. Any ideas how to fix that?

    Don't click and hold when accessing menus. For example, single left click or just mouse over "File" and then the pulldown will stay on screen, and then you can choose an item in the list.

    Thanks, I was finally able to get it. I wonder if my 4K monitors are causing problems? It's very finicky, sometimes I can get it to work by hovering over the menu, sometimes not.

    So I read over this thread and have a question. Has anyone ever thought about porting one of these tools to a Docker container? I'm not savvy enough to do it myself, but I think would be fabulous. You'd have all the dependencies packaged up. I searched in the Docker Hub/Store and couldn't find any instances of "kmttg". I found one for Archivo but it's a year old. There is a Docker container for PyTivo, does anyone have any experience with that? Docker Store

    Just got my 1st TiVo and playing with kmttg today.
    Backup up my OnePass.
    Found out that due to Copy Protection, can't really download any shows (but that's ok for my use).

    I like the AutoSkip. I can get it to work when I select [z] in the GUI, but is it supposed to also engage AutoSkip with the Remote (and the GUI running?)

    In the Wiki look at section entitled AUTOSKIP SERVICE here:
    kmttg / Wiki / AutoSkip
    Using that you don't have to initiate play from kmttg, just initiate play from your TiVo as normal and autoskip will be used for any entry for which you ran AutoSkip from SkipMode on previously.

    NOTE: This AutoSkip topic doesn't belong in this thread... Use kmttg thread if needed.
