Like many, I have experienced partial file transfers from TiVo DVRs to the PC. I have search in vain for a solution. One solution that was suggested was transfer the file in two pieces - before the point that it stop transferring and after that point - then join the pieces with VideoReDo. However, you cannot determine the point that the TiVo file has a glitch since the file plays fine on the TiVo.

Does anyone know if a solution has been found for this problem? Thanks.

Thanks for the helpful responses. However, the file that is transferred is about 170 MB of a 1.6 GB file. The smaller file cannot be opened by VideoReDo and cannot be played by VLC. Windows indicates it is an audio file. So the approached outline will not work. I tried the resume in KTTMG, but the second transfer stops in exactly the same place. The KTTMG encoding profile is set to h264. Is there another encoding profile that might be more successful with the transfer?

Hi,
Thanks for pointing me to pyTiVo. I was able to transfer the entire file and quickly edit and save in MKV format using VideoReDo. I tried to transfer a file from the TiVo Edge using pyTiVo. This attempt crashes the TiVo Edge. I believe this is know problem with the current version of the software running on the Edge. However, I am able to transfer files to the premiere TiVo from the Edge and download them to my PC. Thanks again for your guidance.
