    Thanks, I re-installed kmttg and the scheduled tasks. All worked last night. Will monitor for a few days and see what happens

    Checked this morning and the download task did not run (scheduled run time 1:00 AM. Task scheduler Last run result:
    The operator or administrator has refused the request (0x800710E0)

    The auto skip task ran successfully scheduled run time 12:00 AM

    I looked in the Event Viewer --> Windows Log --> Application and Security and do not see any errors for 12:00 AM to 1:00 AM

    I have 1 user account and it it is an Administrator account

    When I started the download task this morning in task scheduler it runs successfully

    Thanks in advance

    Ok, thanks. This may help out:

    Task Settings

    - If the task is already running then the following rule applies

    - Stop the existing instance

    Will see tomorrow morning

    I have latest video redo installed and just tried updating from kmttg ver j to l and still no joy
    the above was processed with no issue several days ago...tried it to see if it was the other show that was having an issue or all shows.
    Please and thank you for help

    Can KMTTG monitor the channel list for configured DVRs, and auto-hide new channels?

    Sounds like VRD can't process .TiVo files anymore. You probably need to re-install TiVo Desktop for that to work. Verify you can edit/play .TiVo files in VRD before using VRD with kmttg again. Win 10 updates frequently break TiVo Desktop where you need to re-install to get it working again.

    Exactly, that's your problem. In order to process .tivo files VRD needs at least a working partial TiVo Desktop installation, and that's currently not working for you hence the problem in running VRD qsfix on the .TiVo file. So you need to (re)install TiVo Desktop and get it working with VRD before qsfix will work.

    Is there a reason you are not decrypting?

    For the last several months it seems that tdownload_decrypt occasionally throws errors like this...
    [java.io.PipedInputStream.checkStateForReceive(Unknown Source), java.io.PipedInputStream.awaitSpace(Unknown Source), java.io.PipedInputStream.receive(Unknown Source), java.io.PipedOutputStream.write(Unknown Source), com.tivo.kmttg.main.http.downloadPipedStream(http.java:350), com.tivo.kmttg.task.tdownload_decrypt$1Thread1.run(tdownload_decrypt.java:168), java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)]

    As a result I have been just downloading a .Tivo file and using qsfix to decrypt to a .ts file. This works, but I am wondering if this is the proper solution.

    BTW it seems as though tdownload_decrypt only fails on certain stations. I wonder if the failure has to do with the fact that Comcast went to MP4 compression and it is screwing up the encryption on some broadcasts.

    Edit:
    I just tried downloading the Tivo file and running qsfix automatically for a movie and all the resulting file contains is audio. I then tried just having kmttg download the tivo file and then manually running qsfix. But all I get is some audio in the download. This is turning into more of a problem than I expected. Could this be a java problem? Or is the movie only partially copy protected? The station is AMC.


    Also, I cannot thank you enough for creating and maintaining this program. It is wonderful.

    What does KMTTG show for size and time for the recorded show?
    If it is 6-8Gb/hr, then you can use PS or TS download.
    If its less, then only TS downloads or else you only get audio on PS downloads.

    Thanks for the response. I shall double check to make sure I've not turned off TS Downloads. I have been changing a lot of settings to get this to work and it is possible that messed up.
    I always try to use ts downloads because my hearing has gotten bad and I need closed captions (PS downloads seem to mess up closed captions more often than not). Also, Comcast went to MP4 containers over a year ago.

    ThAbtO! Thanks to you I found the combination of settings that allow me to download those shows that gave me trouble. I didn't realize that those over-compressed channels were the ones that were messing up. Yes, you need TS Downloads enabled. But, you also need to turn on 'Decrypt using DirectShow Dump (DSD)'. I was using tivolibre. Also DSD means you cannot Combine Download and Decrypt.

    Edit: But now the subtitles are messed up. Making progress, but ugh.

    I could never get Comcast's MP4/H.264 shows to download without problems, and gave up. Some have reported success using VideoRedo. Good thing KMTTG's AutoSkip works on them! Its also a good thing that Comcast keeps my local stations MP2 because I have no problem with those.

    Yes, thank goodness Comcast didn't mess up the locals. I finally got the right combination of settings to work with the troublesome Comcast stations. First of all, I only select TS Download, I do not select decrypt. I could select QS Fix, but for some reason it is 10 times faster to open VideoRedo manually and run quick fix from there.
    Note that this is only for stations that give me problems. With other stations I can combine download and decrypt and have kmttg call QS Fix and Ad Detect.
    Anyway, my problems seem solved. Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions.
