    Another consideration with wireless is channel conflicts with other routers. @Alan747 could do a wireless survey or just try changing the channel his WAP operates on.

    Is changing the WAP channel something I could set on my router?

    Also, could you explain wireless survey?

    Yes, you can change the wireless settings. Use your browser to go to your router (usually 192.168.1.1) and find the wireless settings, different with each model. You can change the SSID, password and wireless channel for each 2.4 (N) and 5G as well as for guest wifi. The default for the wireless channel is set to AUTO and that usually chooses a channel with the most interference. Basically choose channel 1, 6, or 11 for Wifi N. Least interference is usually on channel 11.

    Correct. I should take a picture of a Premiere to show how it was before the Roamio dropped some stuff. BTW, "Video Download" is not used since TiVo dropped getting content from Amazon stored locally. The top two are PC to/from TiVo transfers. The other two are TiVo to TiVo transfers.

    There's a free version of InSSIDer on the web someplace. It displays all routers with their channels, signal strength and SSID. Very good tool.

    found it:

    Roamio (on old UI) still has Amazon and something else, I think they call it Amazon Subscriber, but it means prime. I only have the latter checked. Isn't the former still purchased videos from Amazon? or is it still streamed only even if purchased?

    Amazon downloaded video content which they don't support anymore.

    I'm not sure if this is the question, but
    1) the Amazon app is the same as the Amazon app on a smart TV, Roku or other device. It doesn't care about TiVo,
    2) On a TiVo, the two Amazon items determine the result of a Search or 1P parameters,
    3) On TiVo, Prime Membership is free content,
    4) On TiVo, Prime Video is rent, buy or free content but a 1P will override the selection,
    5) Even a purchase is stream only.

    All the above is the same on TE3 or TE4, but located in a different menus.

    @moyekj - I think there may be a bug in autoskip. Sometimes when I finish a program that has autoskip, after deleting the program and returning to the Now Playing List, it immediately starts playing the next program without me telling it to. I have seen this behavior for a while, but just recently made the mental connection that it only happens on programs with autoskip.

    Looking through my logs, sometimes there is one extra autoskip with timestamp 00:00:00.000 at the end before autoskip is DISABLED. I am guessing that this is what makes the next program start playing. I am also guessing you can fix it by not sending a play command if the timestamp is 00:00:00.000.

    Hi Folks, I want to ask about some spurious behavior I am still finding with kmttg. I've already described the variable transfer speed that I experience. Aside from that, kmttg seems to be working normally. However, after doing transfers when I exit the program, a left mouse click on the start button has no effect (Windows 10). I can still restart the computer with a selection from the right click menu, but I have to wonder what other mischief the program is causing with the operating system. I have the latest updates for kmttg, java, windows. Any thoughts?

    Oh, one other thing. I sometimes get a message saying "optimal resolution notice" that has some very high resolution value. I assume it comes from the operating system. It says to click on it to learn more, but doing so just makes it disappear.

    If I get bored, I might see about doing a cut-down version of the source and UI that deletes everything RPC to see how useful it is with what's left. For instance, it seems like that HME interface for jobs I started but never released could theoretically still be useful, but launching it would become a problem. Anyhow...I have so many projects I want to work on right now and am getting none of them done.

    I just installed the new Windows update which broke the TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll install AGAIN and prevented QSF from running in kmttg.

    I refer to @SamuriHL's and @Dan203's work here:
    The commands that worked for me:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\pyTivo\dshow\tivomak.exe" -set {MAK HERE}
    
    %systemroot%\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\pyTivo\dshow\TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll"
    Replace "{MAK HERE}" with your MAK without the brackets.

    I thought it would be useful to re-post this here in case others ran into the same issue.

    I had to edit the original commands to include the complete path name to my install of TiVoDirectShowFilter.dll. Your path may be different. :)

    If you'd rather just use the UI you can change the MAK in pyTivo Desktop and then change it back and it'll reregister as well.

    Sorry to jump in late to this thread but can someone point me to a KMTTG troubleshooter please? I have loaded it on my Windows 10 computer, loaded the correct java runtime and the program cant see any programs on my tivo.

    more precisely, when I put in the media access key, it went from not being able to see any tivo device to not seeing anything on the tivo which it no longer says it cannot see!

    Is seeing the tivo supposed to be automatic, at turn on? Or are you supposed to do something to show the program where to look for the drive with the MAK on it, sorta like the first time you enter your wifi network into your computer settings?

    Let's start off with logging in to your tivo.com account, and go under DVR Preferences, make sure the checkboxes are checked for Transfers/Sharing (Click Save at the bottom for any changes.)

    So it has to be started online and not on the program or the tivo box? Then I assume it is nothing to do with EXTERNAL STORAGE on the box's settings? (That page just says that there is no external Storage)

    OK I went into my account and under device preferences, video downloads IS enabled

    Video Downloads is something else. (not used on Tivo anymore.) There is 'Video Sharing' for each Tivo, which needs to be checked. (Click save at the bottom), then force a Tivo Service connection on the Tivo. (Settings / Network)

    You can also look in your Tivo, Settings / Help / Acct & info / System Information.

    Note the software version, if its 20.7.4, then you are ok, but if its 21.x, then its not ok because they disabled transfers from computer to Tivo. (has nothing to do with KMTTG.)

    Next, look at the line, TivoToGo: a,a,a,a
    If there is any 'i', then something is disabled.
