    Hello guys. Hoping someone can give me some help. Title explains my problem. Never had any issues using Tivo Desktop or kmttg but after upgrading to a BOLT, both are no longer working. Is the Bolt incompatible with Tivo Desktop and kmttg? Thanks!

    Try changing the software to TE3.

    I use kmttg with three Bolts without problems. Check kmttg's configuration file for the new Bolt and make sure its using the proper IP address. Also make sure you have "Enable rpc style communications with this TiVo" checked.

    I also use a Tivo Mini with Vox remote so rolling back the software would disable RF control and voice command with the remote.

    I'll give this a try. Thanks.

    So I uninstalled / reinstalled, this time downloading Version 2.8.2 from CNet instead of using what ever old version I had saved. Now, instead of a 'server' tab there's a 'Services' tab. When I click on pick recordings to transfer, this is what I see....

    After searching on Google for this issue I found it was a new, common problem with something about security certificates not being renewed by Tivo. Tivos website states that the Bolt with the new software is not compatible with Desktop. Ditching Tivo Desktop / kmttg & already have pyTivo up and running. Thanks again for the help.

    Had you updated KMTTG to its latest version?

    I think there’s a fix even for TiVo Desktop, detailed somewhere about this site. (moot if happy w pyTivo Desktop)

    Separately, are you running straight pyTivo or pyTivo Desktop?

    I couldn't even get kmttg to open. I re-downloaded that program as well & it still wouldn't open.
    I think I'm running pyTivo Desktop. That's the version you need if TivoDesktop is not installed on the PC correct?
    But yes, so far so good with pyTivo so I removed both kmttg & TivoDesktop.

    BTW, I haven't looked for a solution to the copyright blocks in a long time, I'm assuming there's never been a work-around for that right?
