That's a different issue. To fix that you need to QuickStream Fix the file, then edit the fixed file.On problem recordings, both versions (5 and 6) of VRD TVS are reporting "Problem while seeking to: 00:00:00.00" (and sometimes VRD crashes and closes immediately). TV Suite 6 is Version 18.104.22.1681 dated Aug 27, 2020.
The one time I tried to run QSF on one of the problem files, it took hours and basically stalled out. When I try again, I'll pay more attention to what's happening and report back.That's a different issue. To fix that you need to QuickStream Fix the file, then edit the fixed file.
One thing to keep in mind.... in v5 you have to pick a profile that matches the codec of the source or the file will be recoded. In v6 all of the default profiles use "match source" which means they can be used for either type of file without recoding.The one time I tried to run QSF on one of the problem files, it took hours and basically stalled out.

the not seeing a tivo that is empty is common.. it just means there is nothing there.. close the window and pick another tivo.. i have 4 total...and they all show except when empty...Those are two different issues. If pyTivo really wasn't running then Desktop would popup the "error connecting" dialog immediately.
My guess is that there is a rogue version of pyTivo still running in the background. Click the icon and select quit. Then open the activity monitor and look for pyTivo in the list. If you see it do a force stop on it. Now relaunch pyTivo and see if it works.
1. ts stream errors can be caused by mulitple things... i got rid of most by opening the tivo and putting a fan on the splitter by where the cable is connected.. it dropped my odt temp from 45-56 down to 30... by an external power supply for the fan from amazon and you can cut a hole in the plastic and drill holes to mount the fan over that area...I assume you mean transport stream and program stream? As long as your shows are still in MPEG2, I'd probably stick with program stream, but if you are with Comcast and most of your channels have been moved to MPEG4 then you'll have to use transport stream for the MPEG4 channels which users have reported getting errors in the downloaded show. Dan's program can detect and report on those errors (and retry the download to see if you can get a cleaner version).
I'll let Dan pass on more information on the difference between them but Wikipedia has the following.
MPEG transport stream - Wikipedia
"Transport stream specifies a container format encapsulating packetized elementary streams, with error correction and stream synchronization features for maintaining transmission integrity when the signal is degraded.
Transport streams differ from the similarly named MPEG program stream in several important ways: program streams are designed for reasonably reliable media, such as discs (like DVDs), while transport streams are designed for less reliable transmission, namely terrestrial or satellite broadcast. Further, a transport stream may carry multiple programs."
I've never had an empty TiVo so I had no idea this was a thing.the not seeing a tivo that is empty is common.. it just means there is nothing there.. close the window and pick another tivo.. i have 4 total...and they all show except when empty...
interesting. so are you able to stream outside your home via online.tivo.com w/o a separate tivo stream?I had success going back to TE3 on a vox.
I think it is only the OTA version that can not be downgraded.
Regarding streaming outside of the house, I was never able to get it to work. Regarding reverting back to TE4, there are two ways with the Vox. One way is to hit the blue microphone button which launches the "upgrade" process. The other way is go to Settings > Apps and there is a menu item called "Get New Experience".interesting. so are you able to stream outside your home via online.tivo.com w/o a separate tivo stream?
also, how would you revert back, in case things dont go well? i didn't see steps for that in the other thread
