    Because as I said before autoskip service existed there was no "offerId" needed, only "contentId", so that's what was used initially and has stuck. For most situations it works fine as there aren't too many people recording duplicate shows on multiple machines, and running AutoSkip from SkipMode on the same show on 2 or more machines.
    The AutoSkip capabilities evolved slowly as I figured things out. Originally you could only get it to work by playing show from kmttg, there was no service mode, that came later.

    Question about AutoSkip, enabled it a few months ago and it's awesome, I have only had a few instances where the skip information being pulled by my nightly scheduled task gets messed up.

    I am running the new Hydra interface and it doesn't seem like there is a way to disable Autoskip, on hydra I can't turn to channel 0. Is there a configuration file that can be modified to change the enable/disable channels?

    No, it's not configurable at the moment, but sounds like for Hydra users that it may be necessary.

    v2.4j version is now released which has enhancements recently requested such as TS Download option moved to main GUI page and available for individual Auto Transfers entries, and also configurable channels for disabling/enabling AutoSkip service. Consult release notes for details:

    @moyekj Previously answering a question (from me) you said "You should use AutoSkip service for what you want, that way you don't have to initiate playback from kmttg, and it will autoskip for anything you have autoskip data for automatically without any interaction with kmttg.
    (I never supported initiating play for more than 1 show at a time in kmttg, with or without autoskip)."

    Is initiating a series of shows from kmttg ( a playlist by any other name) a technically difficult thing or just not a priority of users? I have seen a couple of threads where users have requested this from Tivo but is always ignored. Would the difficulty be in setting up the queue or tagging the files or ???

    Is there a way to create a custom playlist using kmttg custom commands?

    Thanks

    There's no RPC function I know of that allows you to initiate play for a group of shows. The function I'm using only allows 1.

    Last question on this subject (I promise) -- I don't know anything about programming so maybe this is just baloney but if you know the length of the shows would it be possible to create a loop of some kind that re-initiates the code that calls the RPC function for each new show at the appropriate time?
    Thanks

    No, that wouldn't be practical - if you use any trick play it would screw it up.
    At any rate, after looking at it some more and trying things out it looks like I can get a group of shows to play after all. So I'll have something along these lines for next release.

    I don't personally need this functionality, but I just wanted to say thanks for how responsive you are to everyone. kmttg probably doubles (more maybe) the value of my TiVo to me.

    And I have a ton of respect for your abilities figuring out how to implement all the things that kmttg does w/ little to no information from TiVo.

    Thanks for this! Tested it on my Hydra boxes. It was just the zero which was problematic. So it works now with an alternate.

    Thanks for the update just tested it and the configureable channels for enable/disable of autoskip work as expected.

    Thanks for the prompt response, the program is amazing, I recommend it to anyone I know who has a TiVo.

    It appears that for untitled recordings, tivos now send a "none" or nothing as the recording's title. This is causing a null pointer exception being thrown by the comparator when trying to sort by title in the NPL.
