So I'm decrypting and pulling files off a series 1 DTivo, and it used to work just fine. I could fiddle with them a bit and write them to a DVD without major trouble. However, lately pretty much every single file comes in with an excessive GOP length error and has to be repaired, which of course makes the files larger. Maybe it is just a spate of errors, but it seems to me this problem dated to about the time that DirecTV updated the operating system a couple of weeks ago to take care of another problem where one of the tuners would get itself into an unmanageable state and stop working. Does anyone have any ideas what might be the issue here? Or even if there is an issue other than chance? I'm using unscramble.o to decrypt, Tytools 9r14 to move files, Ulead 2 to make dvd's and Womble mpeg-vcr to repair bad GOPs.
