    "stopped working" is very vague. What happens? What does the log show?

    this issue was on the previous version I had installed (v2.4o) that I think had a certificate of some kind that expired Dec. 2020. basically, I would load the main program, and when trying to connect to one of my 2 Roamios to get a list of the recordings on each, it couldn't and came back with all these errors in red in the bottom box.

    I installed the version 2.4p and all now works great again. From what I could read, this version will probably expire Dec 2022 & do the same thing my v2.4o did, right? If so, was just wondering what alternatives I may have at that time to do the same thing. Again, I have 2yrs to figure this out and/or use v2.4p so I guess no huge rush here

    Yes. Either someone will figure out the key (??) to update by then, or it'll stop working.

    Two years from now, the same series of evens will occur. We will worry about it breaking in December. Either someone will manage to get a newer cert into it, in which case we've likely got another two more years, or noone will, and it will be dead dead on Dec 12 2022 at 00:24:50 GMT.

    To whomever did that this time, thank you. Not only did it fix kmttg, I have several side scripts that I use to automate tasks on my Tivo's, which of course broke, and and the new cert fixed them right up.

    Yes, BIG thanks to whoever fixed it for v2.4p. I was afraid I wasn't able to use it any longer. This program works WONDERFULLLY for my needs. Basically, I manually record 6hr blocks of some local channels and/or Xfinity cable access channels on my Roamio. 3-4 times per month. I then use kmttg to not only pull it from the TiVo, but it encodes it to a much smaller file (less than 2GB). I can then easily upload it (via filemail.com) for the person who needs to then download it. Easy, simple and its a basic program with a basic look. Nothing fancy, but works great.

    Luckily, none of my local channels have been flagged and "copy protected" either as I noticed this software won't handle those. With cable card support slowly coming to an end and/or Xfinity moving to iptv channels, we will see how much longer I will be able to use it. I wonder which will come first; lose my local Xfinity channels to IPTV (therefore, making my Roamio useless) or the kmttg certificate ending 12/2022 & no replacement (LOL!!!). Until then, I'll happily use v2.4p as needed.

    Again, thanks

    There is no software that can handle the copy-protected content.

    yea, I figured this. I'm thinking at some point, both my TiVo and kmttg will be totally useless for my needs. Since I only record and need SD channels, I will probably get some sort of HDMI to RCA down converter and just use a simple USB video capture device on PC.
