    Sorry, I was not clear. Let me provide an example:

    Remote -> Thumbs -> Refresh -> [scroll down to an entry, 3rd one in the list for example] -> [change rating from 1 to -1] -> Modify

    Rating shows the change. Good so far. Next:

    [scroll down to an entry, about 100 down] -> [change rating from -3 to 1] -> Modify

    Rating shows the change. Good again. Next:

    [scroll down to that same entry, about 100 down] -> [change rating from 1 to 0] -> Modify

    Now, the entry immediately preceding is deleted, and the one to be removed has the rating of the entry that was deleted but should not have been (this assumes the list order is as loaded, not sorted by clicking the headings). Next:

    [scroll down to the entry immediately before that same entry, about 99 down] -> [change rating from 1 to 0] -> Modify

    Now, the entry immediately preceding that entry is deleted, and the one to be removed has the rating of the entry that was deleted but should not have been (this assumes the list order is as loaded, not sorted by clicking the headings). Next:

    [scroll down to the second-to-last entry, about 275 down] -> [change rating from 1 to -1] -> Modify

    Rating shows the change. Good again. Next:

    [scroll down to the second-to-last entry, about 275 down] -> [change rating from -1 to 0] -> Modify

    Now, the entry 2 above that entry is deleted, and the one to be removed has the rating of the entry that was deleted but should not have been (this assumes the list order is as loaded, not sorted by clicking the headings).

    I was just trying to begin my daily kmttg offload of 'Prime Time' shows, beginning with creating .EDL files. I've never seen this error before - is this a TiVo Server (mindUnavailable) problem?
    Code:
    Roamio A: Scanning SkipMode cut points for 'Quantico - RESISTANCE'
    RPC error response:
    {
       "code": "mindUnavailable",
       "text": "'clippy' Mind call failed: PostString failed: Curl error: couldn't connect to server (7). Url: http://clippy-prod.aws.tivo.com:8080/clipMetadataSearch",

    Pretty complicated sequence so not sure if I can reproduce. Deleting table entries can lead to problems as the code gets convoluted. One suggestion though is if changing any ratings to zero to remove them from table even though Modify refreshes the list try manually clicking on Refresh button again to see if that improves things

    Yes, TiVo server issues. Not uncommon at all.

    It was not intended as a complex sequence, merely as a series of examples to demonstrate some conditions when the results are unexpected. Here is a simplified version, straight to the point:

    Remote -> Thumbs -> Refresh => [275 Thumbs listed] -> [scroll down to entry 269] -> [change rating from -3 to 0] -> Modify

    Result: 274 Thumbs listed, but the entry that was at position 267 is gone, and the entry that was at 269 has the rating that the entry that was at 267 had

    With your suggestion, hit "Refresh", but this does not change the reported outcome.

    Can't seem to reproduce it. My example.
    Start with 102 thumbs with last 4 as follows (no sorting in the table):
    Entry 99 = 1
    Entry 100 = -1
    Entry 101 = -2
    Entry 102 = -3

    Change entry number 101 from -2 to 0. Modify.

    List refreshes and shows 101 thumbs and now last entries look like:
    Entry 99 = 1
    Entry 100 = -1
    Entry 101 = -3

    i.e. It removed the entry that was set to -2 as expected.

    Note that I did above with no table sorting of any kind. I didn't experiment with table sorting at all.

    Perhaps, this issue comes up when the list exceeds 200 entries? I'll see if I can figure that out.

    Hi. Do you know if ktmmg can be used to transfer programs from a Tivo to a PC's drive? All the features I've found so far seem great, but I haven't figured this out, if it even exists. Thanks.

    I tried this out with over 700 Thumbs ratings and had the same results as Kevin.

    Looks to me like the issue is when you turn on any kind of sorting in the thumbs table (for example sort by SHOW column name) then the wrong entries can get updated. I'll have to look into it further.

    Choose the tab with the name of your TiVo, click on "Refresh" button to get list of shows on your TiVo. If you want decrypted file instead of only encrypted .TiVo then make sure "decrypt" is selected. Then select show in table you want to download and click on "START JOBS" button. There's a Wiki with a whole bunch of documentation on using kmttg. Start here:

    Thanks - of course it was that simple. I was overthinking it :/
    And to change the directory for saving, just select file/configuration/files default path?

    No, it's ".TiVo Output Dir" that determines where .TiVo files are saved. Decrypted files go to ".mpg Output Dir". The "FILES Default Path" is default directory to use when using FILES tab to process files already on your computer.

    I used kmttg in the past and it suddenly stopped working. Recently I reinstalled the Tivo Desktop to see if it would help. I don't remember what the original issue was. Right now, when I try to load the Now Playing list, it brings up the little chart (where it says "running"), then it just goes away and shows no error message or list of files. (I downloaded the newest kmttg today and my tools were current) I have a 2 tuner Premiere.

    Post everything going to the message window. Not enough to go on based on what you reported thus far.

    Would it be possible to have auto transfer shows have individually set directories? I keep my TV shows in separate folders and have to go back manually and move them.

    Thanks,

    Look at File Naming Wiki. You can change file naming template to include sub-folders such that different series end up in different sub-folders. Specifically you can use the [/] keyword to create sub-folders.

    I'll look closer at that, but will it move to entirely different drives?
    I currently have a 'Movies' NAS and 2 different 'TV Shows' NAS'...

    Thanks,

    No, it's not for changing the base directory where files go.
