    Success!!! Seems pretty logical, not sure why I didn't try that. Thank you very much - it's awesome not to have to go through the tedious step of unselecting all the BS I never watch.

    So I have kmttg working right now but for some reason skip data (which is present in the TiVo UI on TV) on my TiVo Bolt is not showing up in kmttg. On my older TiVo Premiere, the skip data is there and I can hit 'v' to export the skip data before transferring and re-encoding to put on Plex. Any idea why the Bolt specifically wouldn't work? Using kmttg_v2.4l.

    Is RCP enabled for each Tivo? You must enable it (under Tivo Tab) and click OK for each Tivo It is only for Premiere, Roamio and Bolt models.

    How can I tell which Java I have on my Windows box? I haven't updated in a while and today I got the notification about an update in my tray. Checked it out and this is the message I got:

    ... followed by the usual about security fixes, etc.

    Yes, I'm still on Win 8.1 and I need a new bleeping computer.

    Okay, apparently I'm on Version 8 Update 201 (build 1.8.0_201-b09).

    What gotchas are in the new TOS? Does Version 8 Update 211 play nice with kmttg, or should I carry on with my old build?

    I'm running kmttg with
    Code:
    java version "1.8.0_211"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_211-b12)
    just fine.

    I upgraded to Windows 10 x64 1903 today and started getting the server exception errors when running VRD qsfix.

    I remembered I had to uninstall and reinstall TiVo Desktop and that (mostly) fixed the problem.

    The problem I have now: Windows won’t let me do a partial uninstall of TiVo Desktop. The uninstall button is grayed out and I have what appears to be TiVo Desktop services running.

    Question: How can I get Windows to let me do a partial uninstall of TiVo Desktop as before or what do I need to do to manually perform the partial uninstall?

    Never mind ... I figured it out!

    You can't do it from Apps & Features.

    You have to go to Control Panel --> Programs and Features --> Select TiVo Desktop --> Select Change --> Select Partial Uninstall

    Oh geez. That was the problem. I didn't realize it was a separate tick box for each TiVo.

    Also I'm having issues building comskip on macOS X 10.15 beta (darwin 19)... Before I get too far into the weeds with where I'm at with this, has anyone got this to work? Is anyone else even testing on Catalina yet?

    It was OK for me. I was able to successfully use the skip points to remove commercials.

    Code:
    Elementary - Red Light, Green Light

    An explosion at a traffic stop puts Holmes and Watson on two separate tracks of investigation as they try to determine whether the attack was gang related or a terrorist attack. Also, Holmes and Watson suspect there is more for them to discover regarding the recent attack on someone within their inner circle.

    2 questions
    1) Does it work for other shows w/ skip data?
    2) Do the skip points work if you manually play this show on the TiVo and use the skip buttons on the remote?

    But I don't have any helpful thoughts on getting it working otherwise, sorry.

    You’re out of luck if your recording is messed up, closed captions missing, or maybe a weather alert popped up. Seems like the way it stopped you’ve got a bad recording.

    The last show w/skip data was Tuesday evening.

    Skip points on others do not work when I play manually.

    Guess I will see what happens with recordings this evening......

    If the skip points don't work manually, then kmttg can't get them, since it finds them by playing the video and skipping (along w/ some other clever Kevin magic).

    I just tried it, just for another data point, and kmttg can get the skip data from one of my TiVos w/o any problems
    Code:
    BedroomBolt: Scanning SkipMode cut points for 'Elementary - Red Light, Green Light'
    (Setting pause point=0)
    Failed to retrieve cut points for: 'Elementary - Red Light, Green Light'
    Trying one more time.
    BedroomBolt: Scanning SkipMode cut points for 'Elementary - Red Light, Green Light'
    (Setting pause point=0)
    0: start=00:00:10.010 end=00:06:15.275
    1: start=00:09:00.239 end=00:20:44.843
    2: start=00:24:03.942 end=00:34:55.994
    3: start=00:39:17.355 end=00:46:45.636
    4: start=00:51:40.197 end=00:58:08.585

    So the real question is why are skip points no longer working on your TiVo.

    I agree, you need to see if it clears itself up, but I'd also recommend rebooting the TiVo first just because that can frequently clear up issues.
