    yeah, I know about that *workaround*.

    BTW, why I want to do this: I don't do this for ALL shows, but for some shows, I keep track of what episodes I've seen. (I do this more for shows that I end up banking a whole bunch, to make sure I see them in order/all of them, especially if I watch some from Tivo and some from a streaming service, etc..)

    I usually use Notes on my phone to do this manually.. But for some (that I've been watching on Hulu after downloading from my Tivo as 'backup'), I have just been keeping the metadata files instead in a 'seen' folder.

    Why not copy/paste the description from KMTTG's message section?

    That's slightly more tedious than cancelling a transfer, plus that would mean putting it into a new file, etc..

    Plus, this very well may be a Java problem on the Mac, but I seem to remember there's some problem with that text field.. I think I can copy/paste it to some degree, but not character by character.. but I may be totally misremembering.

    Can you configure a custom command which deletes the file after it downloads. Not exactly what you're looking for but the result is the same.

    I also have a use case or 2 for getting only the metadata file.
    @moyekj What do you think of the idea of just adding a context menu item for "metadata job only"? I suggest it because it seems unobtrusive for the majority of people who don't care.

    Just a thought, I can continue to just cancel the download jobs when all I need is the metadata, it's not that onerous.

    I'd prefer a button.. Menus in java are kind of wonky sometimes.

    Has anyone else suffered the unfortunate consequence of clicking "Restore" from the Recently Deleted list in kmttg only to have the episode permanently deleted instead?

    I recently got autoskip on my Tivo Premier - it worked great until updating KMTTG to v2.4h. I checked config to be sure that Use RPC to get NPL when possible and in Tivos tab - enable RPC communication. I cannot seem to get autoskip to work in v2.4h so I reverted to v2.4g and it works well. Is there another setting to get it to work in v2.4h? Thanks very much.

    There were no changes at all between 2.4g & 2.4h for autoskip. Please be more specific about exactly what you are doing and what's not working.

    The skip buttons do not show in 2.4h - they show up in 2.4g. Screenshot from 2.4g:

    Please disregard - I found issue was that I had checked Use old RPC schema version for older TiVo software. It works in 2.4h now. Sorry that I missed that earlier.

    Is there an option for auto-refreshing NPL? I looked around and didn't find one.. I realized that might be useful.

    Also, I had one instance the other day where, even when downloading a show in transport stream format, it only got the audio.
    I don't remember which show it was, but I quickly restored it on the Tivo.. (I have rpc delete on.). I am 100% sure it was in transport stream.

    Bummer.. I'm going back to 'change to 1 page of NPL' for one of my Tivos often (then back to full NPL usually).. but most of the time, since I just sleep my laptop, if it had an auto-refreshing NPL, I could have a more-up-to-date NPL more often.

    If I knew Java, I'd be more likely to add some of these things in even just for my own use.

    Version 2.4i is now released. Has "Download Metadata" File entry (Ctrl-R) recently requested and a couple fixes related to Season Passes. Release notes:

    It looks like its placing the Meta file into the .Tivo file directory instead of the default path. (I use a different folder for jobs such as decrypt, etc and the resulting file ends up in another folder so it does not clutter that up.)

    You can achieve that via Auto Transfers. I set up a dummy entry with the keyword "dummy for NPL updates" in auto transfers. Set it to all or specific Tivos. In global settings of Auto Transfers configuration, set "Check Tivos interval (min)" to your desired granularity. Enable Auto Transfers->Loop in GUI and it will refresh the NPL before looking for "dummy...." (which it will never find) every specified interval.

    Also, of course, ensure that you have enabled "Use RPC to get NPL when possible" in File->Configuration->Program Options.
    I am curious: was there actually no video stream in the download or was there just a missing codec issue? Did you run mediainfo on the file to see?
