View Full Version : So close with TyTools... Last Step Problem

06-24-2005, 02:19 AM
I'm using Tytoolv9R18 to extract shows from my S2 Dtivo w/ 4.01b. I've been able to extract the .ty files in TyStream mode and movie clips in Multiplex mode. I've followed the directons included in the zip and rewritten here:http://themurrays.homeip.net/downloads/tivo/extraction_articles/tivo_dvd.html and I am able to (i think) successfully get all the way to the "Make IFO" step. I am able to view the .vob file created during the Vob-Mux File(s) step. SO that gives me hope that I'm right up 'til there.

My problem occurs in the last TyTools step. I appear to create the menu properly and I've linked the title to the .vob file so that it says used. I get the successful pop-up. The Audio_TS and Video_TS folders are created. Inside the Video_TS folder I have 2 vobs. The smaller I can double click to veiw the menu with the episode name. When I click on the episode name in the menu, basically nothing happens (or atleast appears to happen).

If I double click the larger file, VTS_01_1 ,the file opens but I'm treated to a black screen only. If I burn the DVD, I'm able to see the menu and title, but once I select it, nothing happens, like above.

I've tried this with cuts and w/o cuts.

I've got to believe I'm close. The reason I hacked my tivo was for onscreen caller-id, but that led to HMO and MRV (so-long 300 disc cd changer) and now I'd love to get those pesky large file sports events off the Tivo and stored to a DVD.

I've seached the TyTools thread, but I can't seem to search the right set of keywords to describe my problem. Please help. If you know of a post that I've missed that answers my problem, please point me in the right direction, no need to recreatem on my account.

I've seached the TyTools thread,Ask the question there, that's the reason that thread exists.

That is an odd issue though.

Oh, and it's TyTool, no s anywhere in the word.

Good Luck.
