That message isn't an error message, just a statement of fact. I agree it is confusing and will change it in a future release. Here is how metadata is handled by TVAP:I found your program night and wonder why it took me so long to find it! A question I have is when running VRD manually and saving to .tivo file it keeps the metadata info and I can see it from the Tivo. When the processing is done with TVAP, I get an error at the end of the Ad scan process saying "Cant transfer Metadata to "name of file.vprj"
I am using Tivo Desktop 2.5, VRD 22.214.171.1240, and TVAP v0.48
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
First the metadata is read from the .TiVo file as soon as the file is completely transferred and is saved with other file data in the .xml file.
For .TiVo outputs, the metadata is automatically inserted in the output file by VRD so TVAP doesn't have to do anything.
For DVR-MS output files, a small subset of metadata is inserted in the output file by TVAP.
For mpeg2 outputs or .vprj outputs, TVAP generates a separate text file containing metadata in a format useable by pyTiVo transcoding server as described in this post.
The message just states the fact that metadata cannot be inserted by TVAP into the output file except for DVR-MS.
