View Full Version : Splitting tystream with signal gaps

12-16-2002, 07:44 AM
This is a sort of bug report by example:

I'm trying to deal with tystreams that have gaps in them--places where something went so wrong with the incoming signal that my Tivo (standalone, US, 2.5) just gives up and shows the "cannot display live TV" blue screen.

I've tried both vsplit1n and tydemux (0.3.1); both can ignore a gap at the beginning, but only write audio/video streams up to the first hole, then stop.

To illustrate, I made a 5 minute manual recording, but with the video cable yanked out during the first, third, and fifth minute. My split files contain the first minute (good), but not the second (bad).

It's 22 megs big, so I can't post it here, but I'll be happy to send this to anyone who's interested.

Thanks, y'all.
