Dan,I could still send the original .tivo header so all the metadata would stay intact. No need to use the -p option or anything like that. I can just send through the header bytes from the original .tivo file, then start sending the decrypted video portion of the file. As far as the TiVo is concerned it would be a .tivo file.
Your unquestioned willingness to customize pyTiVo Desktop is just so... beyond words.. appreciated doesn't cover it, but maybe a search of a thesaurus will help me.
Thank you. :clapping:
Re: 'plain-vanilla' @wmcbrine pyTiVo, once I decrypt a file with tivolibre into a .TS file, I lose the metadata unless I used kmttg to create a separate .TXT file, no? Is that what the '-p' option does? My memory on this is unclear. If / when I get pyTiVo running again on this old desktop, what do I need to do to get the metadata to appear on my TiVo? (i.e. put the .TXT file in the same sub-directory as the .TS file; and / or set something in the pyTiVo config file; or...)
