The metadata files are used by pyTivo "pulls". In fact pulls retain much more data than "pushes". Each .mpg should have a corresponding .mpg.txt file (which kmttg creates for you automatically if you have metadata task enabled).Sorry if this has been discussed, I have spent an hour looking....
I love kmttg and use it to upload .tivo files, decript, and trim commercials and then I store them on my DLNA server (Netgear RAID box).
Everything I have read about keeping the meta data with the .mpg files (I'm not transcoding to mp4) seems to involving using PyTivo and 'push'. I would like to use my Tivo boxs (S3, HD) to 'pull'. Is it possible to have the meta data 'pulled' with the .mpg file so that the program on my tivo is the same just w/o commercials.
Thanks, is there a utility that can create .tivo files (with the meta data) so that they can be pulled down into my Tivo boxes from my NetGear DLNA server?MPEG2 (.mpg) files cannot contain metadata. (That's one reason the pyTiVo text metadata file system was created.) MPEG4 and WTV files can contain metadata and there are utilities that can read pyTiVo metadata files and insert the metadata into them. Also, I believe that if you have kmttg create MPEG4 files it can insert the metadata into them.
