    For several months I've had to periodically reinstall TiVo desktop to get the TiVo codec to work in Media Player on Windows 10. However, now this only causes Media Player to play the .TiVo audio, no video. What can I do? (I tried pyTivo, but that's giving me a traceback decoding a DNS message when it starts up, so it will be a pain for me to try and figure it out.)

    Why not just use KMTTG to decrypt the .tivo file to .mpg or .mp4?

    A common issue with downloaded shows with only audio, no video is that its in MPEG4 format, which need to be downloaded by TS (Enable Faster transfer in Tivo Desktop).

    If it was already enabled, try downloading again without TS enabled.

    The shows played correctly until a few days ago, and were downloaded from my TiVO 3 a year ago, so nothing new there. All were downloaded using "slow" transfer so that they could be transferred back to the TiVo, but that hasn't worked (TiVo doesn't see any recorded files on my PC.) I keep using "slow" in case I find out how to get transfers back working someday.

    I have hundreds, no, thousands of saved programs from my TiVo over the years. I'd rather not have to individually decrypt each one. But that would be better than nothing, I suppose.

    KMTTG does that in sequence as well as other jobs such as download shows, passes, etc.

    What program are you using to try and transfer shows back? TiVo Desktop, pyTivo or pyTivo Desktop?

    With Tivo Desktop, you may need to update the certificate to be able to transfer back to Tivo.
