    Thanks.

    I love using the AutoSkip for commercial cuts, works great on my h.264 recordings that use to hang(slow processing) in comskip.

    I get the same behavior on both of my Bolts. They find S1-6 in Search++ and only S7 in Episode info.

    I find all episodes when searching directly on both TiVos, including the bogus S8 episode (only 7 seasons have aired).

    The odd thing is, I discovered this issue testing with MG3. MG3 finds programIds for all episodes.

    Since you can’t replicate the issue, I’ll have to chalk it up to some quirk in the TiVo “infrastructure”. If you can think of something else to try, I’ll be happy to do it, but I wouldn’t spend too much time down this rabbit hole. :)

    I decided to play around a bit with kmttg and download/decrypt/encode some tivo programs I had recorded on my old series 3 tivo. As I became more familiar with kmttg, I saw I could use VideoRedo for a few features, particularly the QS fix which seemed to be something worthwhile to do.

    So, I found my old VideoRedo TVSuite v3 and TIVO Desktop plus and decided to install them to use with kmttg. However, when I try to decrypt using the QS fix option particularly using VideoRedo, I get the same consistent error message which I pasted below:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cscript.exe //nologo "C:\Program Files\kmttg\VRDscripts\qsfix.vbs" "z:\kmttg\Splash and Bubbles - Cleaner of the Kelp How Bubbles Got Her Moves Back (11_25_2016)Cleaner of the Kelp How Bubbles Got Her Moves Back.mpg" "z:\kmttg\Splash and Bubbles - Cleaner of the Kelp How Bubbles Got Her Moves Back (11_25_2016)Cleaner of the Kelp How Bubbles Got Her Moves Back.mpg.qsfix" /l:C:\Users\GHELFR~1\AppData\Local\Temp\VRDLock2853162984872387998.tmp /m /c:mpeg /v:mpeg2video

    To provide a few more particulars, I included the following details of the different versions I am using:

    Kmttg (v2.2h) on windows (10 x64)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\TiVo\Desktop\Plus\TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll (v2.8.412.370)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoReDoTVSuite\VideoReDo3.exe (v3.1.4.560)


    Does anyone have any idea what this error is about? What it means? And how to resolve it?


    Also, is using VideoRedo QSfix much better whenever possible over using ffmpeg fffix?

    And is there is a preferred benefit to using DirectShow Dump, over tivolibre if possible? And either of these over tivodecode to decrypt?


    Thanks - Gerry

    Thank you very much for this. I was using VideoLAN player for this. As soon as I turned the deinterlacing filter on it worked like a charm!!! You are awesome!!!!

    Gerry, read the VideoRedo Wiki: You need to run VRD GUI to register components in Windows.
    kmttg / Wiki / VideoRedo_configuration
    Since you have Windows and TiVo Desktop installed DirectShow Dump and/or VideoRedo are your best decryption options.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, after doing what I could from the info included, I still receive the same error message.

    I didn't see this info soon enough and obviously ran kmttg before running VideoRedo GUI once. There isn't too much I can do about running VideoRedo before kmttg at this point.

    I did extract kmttg again to a new folder and start a fresh install. I had already turned off UAC. And I did select the option to run the VideoRedo gui as part of the kmttg config. It looks like this option was renamed to "Run All VideoRedo Jobs in GUI mode" within kmttg v2.2h. However, the VideoRedo GUI didn't actually start when I ran the QSfix again, and just gave me the same error message.

    So, at this point, is there anything else I can do? Can I somehow force the COM files to be registered? Is there something else I can try? I really want to use my VideoRedo with kmttg.

    Thanks - Gerry

    Try re-installing VideoRedo. And just make sure after you install that you actually run it and open up a .TiVo file and play it and make sure that's working.

    Thanks - I'll give that a try this evening.

    Otherwise, do you know which files need registered? And could I not register them manually? or check after-the-fact to see they actually did get registered? possibly using an app such as this :
    RegDllView - Register dll/ocx/exe utility

    Started a few versions ago (2-3 months?) I get RPC messages when retrieving NPL from my Den. Unit is a TivoHD, I don't have use RPC checked in my configuration settings for this unit.
    RPC error response:
    {
    "code": "middlemindError",
    "cause": {
    "code": "remoteMindUnavailableError",
    "text": "Failed to get body capabilities for tsn:65200018XXXX : missing software version for body",
    "type": "middlemindErrorCause"
    },
    "text": "middlemindError",
    "type": "error"
    }

    REMOTE job completed: 0:00:01

    ---DONE--- job='REMOTE NP List' TiVo=DEN

    AutoSkip (Mast


    2) Saving a videoredo project file no longer saves an autskip file (properly). If I select ad cut, bring up VRD, run ad detect, manually adjust cuts then save. Cuts are no longer imported

    Just select ad detect. You run quickfix, probably not needed, then save the generated cuts, not the cuts after I make adjustments and save project file.

    Not sure which version "broke" it.

    Unfortunately, I am still getting the same error as before after doing the following:

    1) close kmttg
    2) uninstall VideoRedo 3
    3) reinstall VideoRedo 3
    4) start Videoredo 3
    5) open *.tivo file
    6) play *.tivo file
    7) close VideoRedo 3
    8) start kmttg
    9) start job with QS fix
    10) same error


    I am out of things to try at this point.

    Gerry, you should try running a batch job within VRD which uses the same COM objects.

    TiVo broke tivo.com for HD units which is why you are getting that error.

    What version of kmttg are you running? I just tried this using latest version and it worked fine for me. I made manual cuts using VRD, saved Vprj file and exit VRD and it saved my edited cut points to AutoSkip table.

    I was getting low on disk space ( I tfr almost every prime time show I watch to PC), so I knew I wouldn't watch everything on the PC, so I did a mass delete of the shows in the auto record section on kmttg. Now when I start Kmttg, it opens I see the menu, but immediately closes. Wont stay open. I think this happened before, but I can't remember the fix.
    thanks

    Some things to try in order:
    Remove c:\Users\YOURNAME\kmttg_settings_v2
    Rename config.ini to something else to see if it helps.
    Download and unzip latest kmttg zip file over your current installation.

    You have to right-click VRD and choose "Run as administrator" to get it to register the COM interface. You only have to do it once and it doesn't matter what else is installed, although I would probably restart kmttg.

    VRD5 has a different COM registration process, but that's how the older version worked.

    My bad. I was closing vrd by clicking in top right after saving project file. I forgot properly exiting vrd is what used cuts to make skip points.

    I know tivo.com doent do much for s3 units. I thought a configuration setting would prevent kmttg from wasting time trying.

    If you take away tivo.com login and password from Config--Tivos tab then it should stop it.

    So I have read through the KMTTG Guide and even looked online to find a solution to this problem but have not been able to find one. I think I have narrowed the problem down.

    I run ad detect on all of the my shows so I can run autoskip when I watch them on my Tivo. It works really well most of the time. But I seem to be having issues on certain news shows. For example: The Rachel Maddow Show, etc. For some reason it will create the ad detect files for each episode but it will then remove the skip file from the previously processed episode. When I look inside the folders where I keep my processed files I can see all of the ad skip files but KMTTG is not recognizing them for each episode. I think it has something to do with the way Tivo is naming the file or how KMTTG is recognizing the file.

    I would really like to have each episode that KMTTG processes keep the auto skip file so when I watch the video on my Tivo it will auto skip the ads. I would greatly appreciate any help.

    What distinguishes one show from another for storing in AutoSkip.ini file is the "contentId". I am guessing that perhaps all of the Rachel Maddow Show episodes have the same contentId? You can check by selecting one in NPL table and pressing 'j' then look for contentId setting.
    The reason contentId is used is because that's the basis of how TiVo SkipMode works for distinguishing cut points for shows (that's the ID TiVo uses to download skip points).
