    i have a problem my provider says that I need to factory reset due to a problem.

    i have tried pytivo [no tivos found error]
    * archivo stuck on fetching forever
    *kmttg works and sees programs but will not transfer says copy protected.

    All I want to do is transfer all the movies and tv shows to an external hdd, factory reset transfer them back to the tivo.

    I would really appreciate it if anyone could help.

    If they are copy protected, then no program will be able to transfer them over. This can happen if its from channels such as HBO, Showtime, etc.

    Who is your cable provider as some are worse than others on copy-protecting shows and unfortunately there is no way to transfer ones that are flagged this way? Also, is your TiVo supplied by your cable vendor? What's the issue you are having where they say you need a "factory reset" (Clear and Delete Everything would be the TiVo term)?
