I've searched, but can't find an answer to this problem.

I've extracted a audio-only recording from one of DirecTV's music channels as a a .ty file. It plays fine through tyshow. I want to convert it to MP3, but when I try to de-mux it, every program I try crashes.

Any suggestions?

First suggestion would be to tell us what you've tried. Obviously only you can know what you've already tried, so no one else will be able to make good suggestions because you might've already tried them.

Second (only if you haven't already tried it), try vsplit--part of the TyTool package. It might be able to demux a .ty stream better than any mpeg tool because it was made to do so.

Or you can just use TyTool directly -- I've done that many times. Works like a champ.

Both TyTool and vsplit crash with the Windows message that the program "has encountered a problem and needs to close." I've also tried tydemux and hdemux. Neither of them work.

Then it sounds like either (A) you have a bad or missing cygwin1.dll (possibly, although I don't know that TyTool uses it for this part; I vaguely remember it's used for the editor), or (B) there's something wrong with the stream. Of course, you're able to play it with TyShow...

Only other thing I can think of is that there's something up on your PC. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but then none of this does...what model DTivo are you extracting from?

It's a RCA DVR40 with 6.2 software. No problem with extracting video programs, just this audio-only one. The cygwin1.dll is just fine.

Perhaps something went wrong with the recording. I'll record a new one and try again. Hopefully I'll get it figured out by Nov. 15...

I'm having the same problem. TyTools extraction (TyStream Mode, Standard Mux output, No Audio Transcoding). Then I used vsplit against the ty file:

I was having the same problems. I am using a S1 with 3.1.0b tivoapp, patched for noscramble and audio. extraction itself works fine, the problem is splitting audio only .tmf.

I had problems with tyshow 0.14 playing some of the files.
tytool (vsplit 9r16) generates 0 length audio file when splitting.

hdemux 0.12 wants to work - it at least produces an audio file, but it only plays for 5-10 seconds before it skips forward about 5 minutes, plays for another 5 seconds, skips again...

so I disabled the timestamp discontinuity whatever stuff, and OH YEAH BABY!
perhaps this check could become optional in future versions of hdemux?

How did you get Directv tivo to record the audio program ?

I have been looking for a way to do this, but can't.

I have 6.2 hacked with tivoweb, tytools, mfs, etc. However when I try to record one of the xm music channels it won't let me.

Thanks for the patch. I couldn't figure out how to compile hdemux with Microsoft Visual Studio NET 2003 (and I hate Cygwin with a passion), but it went just fine in Linux, so I'll FTP my files back and forth until it's patched in the mainstream release.

I ran those same commands yesterday on my 6.2 system and they worked fine. I can record ad playback audio-only channels. Did you cut&paste the commands or did you pull the drive and put it in your PC? Did you get 1 2+2 message and 2 4+4 messages?

The problem I'm running into now is that even though the programs play fine on the tivo once I get the .ty file to my PC I can't do anything with them. TyTools aborts when trying to split or MUX the files. TyShow will not play the files. Still working on that one.

Nmake is not in 2003 .NET. I tried that before doing it in Linux.

Nmake is not in 2003 .NET. I tried that before doing it in Linux.Still part of visual studio according to users on the net and microsoft's web page. In C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin by default. I'd build a new release that takes care of this issue automatically but I need a 3.1.5f tivoapp patch to test against first, and I don't see one.

Small utility that allows ty audio only files to be converted to elementary audio stream/m2a.

Compile the attached files on your computer as an executable (I call mine TyES). After transferring the files from your TIVO run the command line:
TyES <input file> <output file>

The output file can then be split or converted to any other format with your favorite convertor (e.g. Audacity, etc.).

This is a quick and dirty program I wrote for my own use so:
No support is offered
Known to work with TY files from SW versions 3.1.1e and 6.2
Compiled and run on XP. Have not tried on Linux (although I don't see any
any reason it wouldn't work on Linux).
Minimal error checking
Minimal documentation within source
Feel free to modify and redistribute as you feel fit
No laughing at my coding (it's been awhile) :-)

Just to throw my hat in the ring here, I followed WolffPack's instructions, and the XM Audio channels are recording nicely now. (I got the 1-2+2 message and the 2-4+4 messages, with the Tivo drive in my pc.)

I have not tried TyTool or TyShow yet, but I will be trying this in a few hours. I wanted to schedule the recording as opposed to manually kicking it off.

Thanks Wolffpack. I'll let you guys know if I have the same problems with TyTool and TyShow.

You don't get the full visual studio ide, but you do get a command line compiler and the necessary libraries.

I use a different compiler. However, it looks like you only compiled one of the C files. You need to compile both source files and then link them.

The program runs. I load the file into Audacity and it says "Importing MP3 file". But when I play a two hour recording it plays in 1 second. Just a screech. I've tried three different files from the Tivo, one only being 12 minutes. No luck there either. I must be missing something here.

Don't worry about the compiler warnings. It does not affect the program running. It is referring to an implicit variable declaration in the code.

A couple questions:
Was the audio only TY file extracted using TyTools or MFS-FTP? The program as written was for for TyTool extracted files. MFS-FTP has XML data that the program does not take into account.

How big was the original audio only TY file?

How big was the output file?

Can you play the output file on Windows Media player?

That's what I figured.

TyTool. Although I also tried mfs_ftp copying from the .ty directory. Didn't seem to make any difference.


How big was the original audio only TY file?
I tried 3 files. 1=184,320KB, 2=186,368KB, 3=12,292KB


How big was the output file?
1=176,597KB, 2=178,547KB, 3=11,701KB


Can you play the output file on Windows Media player?
No. WMP comes up with "WMP cannot play the file....might not support the file type or might not support the codec...".

Idoco,

I know this is not something you are supporting and I don't want to be a pain. Anytime just tell me to bugger off.

Idoco,

I just wanted to let you know that I gave it a shot as well, and had the same results as Wolffpack. (Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining at all, just providing feedback if you find it of value.)

Here was my approach...
1. Extract the ty file from the Tivo using TyTool9r18. (File size was big, 4 hours - 289.4Mb)

2. Ran the compiled tool against the .ty file, and ended up with a file of 276.6Mb.

3. Loaded the file into Audacity, and it said it was importing the mp3 file. (Audacity thinks the file is 1 minute 41 seconds in length)

4. Played the file, and it was all scratches, beeps and screeches.

5. For giggles, went ahead and saved the file as an mp3 anyways- encoding with Lame 3.96.1 - curious to see what the output looked like.

6. File ended up as 1.55mb mp3, and Winamp also thinks that it is 1 minute 41 seconds in length. WMP won't touch the file for the same reasons that Wolffpack mentions.

7. Grasping at straws a little bit, I compiled the source using Intel's 9.0 compiler, but got the same results as above.

I hope this is of some help to you. I appreciate all you have done so far, and please don't feel obligated to help more than you want.

Thanks idoco. :)

Great job, Idoco. TYes works like a charm! I was tired of piping the saved programs from the music channels through my PC sound card in order to put the songs on other media (MP3 player, CDs etc).

Here's the compiled Windows binary for anyone interested. I've only tested it on my XP Pro SP2 box (where I compiled it) and my Win2K SP4 box.

Sorry for the delay, been gone for a few days.

I ran the echo commands from a telnet session and got the 2+2 and 4+4 messages.

I did not cut and paste and I did not pull the drive.

Did you reboot your Tivo after moving your patched tivoapp in place of the original tivoapp?

Yes rebooted, but nothing happened. I must of done something wrong.

I've found that hdemux works somewhat better than TyES--less garbled audio. The problem with hdemux is skipped chunks due to timestamp discontinuity. I did a little debugging and found a fix for audio-only .ty files. This fix may not work for normal .ty files. I have attached my patch (the patch also fixes a minor issue when building with Visual Studio 2005). My patch should be applied against hdemux 0.13 as found in this post.

I've also attached an executable version.

nevermind i figured it out i think.

I copied the hdemux.exe to my documents folder and in a command prompt typed

>hdemux -i music.ty -a music.m2a as I saw it in another thread and yes it is playing in winamp. The only thing so far that I have noticed was for some reason my record stopped on its own and I only ended up with about a 32mb music file.

I did download it with tytools in tystream mode. Now to play with the audacity app.

Ok,
So after searching through too many different threads, here is what you need to do for audio extraction.

1) Use TivoWebPlus to initiate a manual recording of the music
2) Extract the file in ty format using tytools or mfs_ftp
3) Extract the audio from the ty file using hdemux (included with the latest and greatest tytools) using a command line similar to this:

hdemux -i yourfile.ty -a yourfile.mpa

notice i changed the extention of the audio file to mpa which is mpeg audio stream. This file you can play is most players including windows media player.

4) And just about anything will convert this to mp3. Just use google to search for mpa to mp3 or mpa converter. I personally use besweet, works great.

Thanks, I ran the patches (echo commands) from the linux command line, got the 2+2 and 4+4 records added messages.

But still can't record audio (neither by pressing record on remote while listening or by recording from the guide).

Have you got this working ?


Thanks

I know this works for 6.2 software but can I get confirmation on 6.3c HR10-250 software.
Thanks.

Thanks.

Let me know if you get this working on your HR10-250... I'd love to have this feature on my 500GB PTVnet HD + InstantCake 6.3 hacked HR10-250 :D
