    Yes, it is always a good practice to not share your user ID online. Just another piece of the puzzle for access best not given away. And darn I mistyped my <myuser> replacement.

    Everything else works up to this point, it downloads, decrypts and converts to MP4. Even runs comskip on it, just not creating the EDL file for some reason.

    As I said, check your comskip.ini file. There's a setting in there somewhere telling comskip to output EDL. My guess is what you have perhaps is not setting that, so comskip is not generating .edl file output.

    Yeah that was kind of my gut check. Didn't immediately think of it because the first NPL refresh after all those deletions/recovers worked fine.

    Might be a good thing to note somewhere that if you do that much deleting/recovering and have that specific problem, unfortunately best option might be to just wait 24 hrs for the TiVo's invisible "black box" HDD maintenance to complete before driving yourself crazy!

    That was it, never saw anywhere about comskip files needing to had a line for EDL. Might be a good error check, no EDL file found.

    Thanks for the help.

    @moyekj - I'm unable to download metadata for a specific show: "Snowfall - A Long Time Coming".

    I haven't had issues with any other show. I've restarted kmttg and my TiVo and still have the issue.

    The video downloads correctly, just not the metadata file.

    Any thoughts?

    Hmm, I had the same issue with this episode. I assumed it was a glitch. I deleted the episode and set up my Tivo to record it again.

    [Edit] Attached is the Chunk-01 XML file (appended with .txt for upload) from the .TiVo file which was extracted with the tivolibre -D option. If I remember correctly, the metadata is extracted from Chunk 1 and not chunk 2. I'm guessing it's the vWriter element that is causing the issue. First episode where this name (Suarez�Pico|Tatiana) appears in the series.

    Yes I think the problem is in TiVo metadata using illegal xml syntax, or at least something that the Java xml parser can't handle in the xml. Not really much I can do about it, so since this is very infrequent issue just use MG3 or some other tool to generate the metadata file for this episode/series.

    That xml is interesting in that it is missing both the series and program uniqueid (aka seriesId and programId).

    Chunk 2 had both the seriesId & programId, so I must have misremembered which one is used to generate the metadata. Must come from chunk 2, and not chunk 1.

    Hope this isn't too far removed but got a couple questions. I'm in the process of using kmttg to convert tivo files to another format.

    1) When I view the converted show listings thru my TiVos, I don't see much detail for the title. What can I do to improve the title? I want to say just changing the title doesn't work. Do I need to change the *.mp4.txt file contents and that'll control what gets displayed?

    2) Do these *.mp4.txt files contain the details that's shown in "info" on the tivo when looking for details? Seem to just have a bunch of txt files for each show, guess one initially and then one for this conversion? It'd be nice to remove stuff not needed.

    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    How are you seeing your converted shows on your TiVos? I'm guessing pyTivo (it's the only way I know of).

    The *.txt files that kmttg creates contain all the metadata about the show that kmttg gathered from the TiVo when it downloaded it. The contents are in a format recognizable by pyTivo which will send it back to the TiVo along with the matching video file so the TiVo can display more information about it. There is also a utility called Metagenerator 3 (although I haven't been able to find the source repository for that) which can help create the metadata .txt file if the original video didn't come from the TiVo. I haven't actually used MG3 yet.

    pyTivo has some rules for how it finds a metadata .txt file for a given video file, but if there is one that is the full video filename+extension+.txt that's the one it will use, and you don't need any other .txt files.

    If you are using pyTivo to view on your Tivo, then the <show>.mp4.txt file is important to provide details from the "info" button. If you are using Plex to view on your Tivo, then how you name the encoded file is important and the <show>.mp4.txt file is not used.

    Actually, what I was talking about was looking at the TiVo listing, scroll to bottom, connect to TiVo Desktop and from there, I'll see the shows I've converted from kmttg. I want to say I've transferred them as well and get similar results with names, but that was a while ago and may be different with current version. I'll play around with the files / info provided.

    Thanks!

    You have to use pyTivo to return files to the TiVo and maintain most metadata. With TiVo Desktop you are going to lose a lot of metadata.

    The only way you get any metadata with TD is if it is a .tivo file.

    I've been away from this forum for a while. Has the ability to send downloaded .tivo files back up to the box been fixed yet?

    If you're talking about Push (initiated from the PC) capability then no, it's still broken and will probably never be fixed.

    Pull was never broken.
