    Yep. I used to post a lot in the ReplayTV section of AVSForum back in the day. Your user name is very familiar as well. :grinning:

    As I posted earlier 'somewhere here', I took my February 2016 installation from my non-bootable laptop (booted from a Live CD), copied the base TiVo subdirectory (I installed kmttg and pyTiVo in the TiVo folder) over my LAN to an external HDD connected to my old Vista desktop, started up kmttg and changed a few drive letters and 'Voila!' - all my settings, file naming keywords, auto-transfers, MAK, UserID, PW, etc... were just as they were on my laptop.

    Easy Peasy! :cool:

    As I remember, it's intentional. google salt cryptography

    Even after decrypting, I don't think I've seen files from the same Tivo match.

    Hi all, Ive been trying to figure out a way to do this but thus far haven't been able to. My goal is to simply download tivo files and generate autoskip table entries. Afterward I would like to delete all associated files so they dont accumulate.

    Sounds like your goal is to just generate autoskip table entries for skip enabled shows? You can do that without downloading Tivo files. Options:
    1. For a single skip enabled show, select the show in the Now Playing List for your Tivo, press 'V' key. For all skip enabled shows, use the 'W' key. Only works for shows that have the SKIP icon in kmttg. Tivo playback will be interrupted while kmttg calculates the autoskip table entries. Afterwards, you will see an 'S' next to the skip icon in kmttg. More info here: kmttg / Wiki / AutoSkip_from_SkipMode
    2. You can also use set up as a scheduled event. See AutoSkip from Skipmode example here: kmttg / Wiki / windows_task_scheduler
    Enable the Autoskip service for your Tivo(s). kmttg / Wiki / AutoSkip

    Thanks for the information! So where do I get VideoRedo, and how do I use it on my .ts files? Does VideoRedo integrate into KMTTG, or is it something that has to be done separately after decryption?

    VideoRedo is non free Windows only program:
    VideoReDo MPEG Video Editor
    There's a fully functional free trial period available.
    TV Suite is version you want since it supports mpeg2 and H.264. Older versions are mpeg2 only. TV Suite also includes good encoder profiles which can take advantage of Intel GPU.

    Yes, kmttg has good VideoRedo integration which you control under config--VideoRedo tab (only shows up for Windows installs).

    My goal is actually to try and generate autoskip table entries for all shows. Ive been downloading the tivo file with autotransfer and then running ad detect. But that leaves a variety of files which build up after time. Not a major issue but would be nice to be able to delete them automatically

    No. That's stock art we've been using for years. A new website is on my short list, so we may be getting rid of frick and frack soon.

    Hi guys, I haven't used kmttg before so I am a noob.
    I am trying to copy files from my TiVo to my iMac using kmttg v2.2s.

    I have a TiVo series 3, Model Info: TCD663320, Software Version: 11.3b8-01-2-663 and a 2013 iMac with 24gb ram and 4 processors running OS X 10.12.4 over Ethernet. I'm in Australia so I don't know if our version down here is any different to yours up there.

    I can start downloading a file from my TiVo but it is really slow, it shows 0.0Mbps - if I'm really lucky it will show 0.1Mbps.
    I'm assuming it should be a lot faster than this. Is there something in the settings that need to be adjusted to fix this?
    I have made sure my wifi and firewall are turned off and I have restarted my Mac, router and TiVo.

    The other thing is that the download only does about 1.7MB before it comes up with a "Read timed out" error. I don't know why this would be happening. Has anyone come across this before? This is what happens;

    >> DOWNLOADING FROM 'Carls TiVo' /Users/carl/Movies/TiVoShows/1. Standard Features (06_01_2009).TiVo ...
    http://x.x.x.x:80/download/1. Stand...wPlaying&id=10017&Format=video/x-tivo-mpeg-ts
    http://x.x.x.x:80/download/1. Stand...wPlaying&id=10017&Format=video/x-tivo-mpeg-ts: Read timed out
    /Users/carl/Movies/TiVoShows/1. Standard Features (06_01_2009).TiVo: size=1.71 MB elapsed=0:07:20 (0.03 Mbps)
    Download failed to file: /Users/carl/Movies/TiVoShows/1. Standard Features (06_01_2009).TiVo

    I have successfully downloaded the TS file via a web browser where I got 1.5Mbps, but I need to use kmttg so the conversion is done automatically.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Carl.

    Okay, I've solved some of my problem. There must have been a problem with the hub I was using because now I am getting 27.10Mbps and the whole file is downloading but when it tries to convert I get this message;

    Can anyone help me with this? I tried turning tivolibre compatibility mode on but it didn't make any difference.

    This may have been asked before - I found similar issues but none of the solutions I found have helped me.
    I have a Tivo Roamio with Comcast cable in the Seattle area. I am having very hit-or-miss results with kmttg at the moment. Using 2.2s with TS and tivolibre.
    Issue is that for some shows I get output files that on paper look good but no program can open them. Tried with WMP, VLC, Handbrake and Adobe Premiere Elements 12. The latter could import something, but it was just the audio track no video. Everything plays fine on the Tivo.
    So for example, I saved Designated Survivor from episode 5 through 16 or so. E05 TS I can watch just fine on the PC. The rest I cannot watch at all - get error that format is something that cannot be reproduced. For many of those, if I try to play the .TiVo file, I actually can watch it no problem, but for others I get a grey screen and only audio plays and yet for others I just get a dead timeline (can't play but I see a time duration and can move the cursor to any time, but nothing will play).
    I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Since it looks like you have at least partial TIVo Desktop installation use DirectShow dump for decrypt instead of tivolibre:
    config--Program Options--Decrypt using DirectShow Dump instead of tivolibre
    That should fix cases where .TiVo file plays but decrypted .ts doesn't.

    Without knowing what filetypes your trying to clean up and when you are trying to delete them, I can only offer generic advice.

    OK, so I got it to work but with a caveat - I had to disable the TS and rather use PS with DirectShow. Thanks for the quick help!

    Thanks for the info. If I end the autotransfer process after running ad detect it leaves an edl file a txt file and a mpeg-2 TS video. I have no idea on a custom command but if you have an idea for one Im willing to give it a try It would probably need to run after the data is used to add a auto skip table entry somehow.
