as mentioned in the "movie factory error?" thread, i have a tystream from my dtivo that is irreplacable, but will not work in dvdmf, dvdws, spruceup nor ifoedit; all either give errors or blow up.

what i'm thinking of doing is using tmpgenc or something to re-encode the stream so i can make a dvd. i'd want to use a technique that would cause the least degradation in quality, and the (broken) mpg with cuts is about 3.5gb, so i've got almost a gb to play with if needed.

any ideas on what to use, and what setting/parms?

thanks,

ronny

If you have the original ty stream give it a shot WITHOUT ANY CUTS. Possibly just creat chapter marks at the beginning and end of the commercials.
