I'm trying to extract a show that has a slash character / in the name.

TyTool crashes every time I try to get that show but it works OK with others.

Any tips? Can I rename the show either on the TiVo or in TyTool? Tried a search but couldn't find anything helpful - not being able to use / as a search term didn't help.

I had the same problem trying to extract a episode of monster garage had a name like schoolbus/pontoon or sompin. I finally gave up on it. Would love to hear a work around to this problem from someone in case I ever come across it agian.

Another fix would be to use EditTitle to edit the title of the show via telnet using TeraTerm to eliminate any invalid characters. You can find the program in this (http://dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10229&perpage=15&highlight=EditTitle&pagenumber=2) thread.
