View Full Version : Insertion - Interesting (aka undesired) Results.

Hello Hello.

So I took an AVI I wanted to put into my DTiVo running 6.2, and used ffmpeg to split it into an m2v and an m2a. I then used the mplex I found on this forum, and generated a .ty file. I used mfs_ftp to insert the show into my box, and a few things happened.

I got several 'copies' of the show listed in 'Now Playing' - 2 were empty, errors. The others were a 30 and an 11 minute clip from something else.

The 5th one in Now Showing was the show itself. The length was right, the audio was all there, but there was no video.

Any ideas what I could have done wrong to get a black screen for video, but working audio?

Edit: I restarted my TiVo and the other 4 wierd ones vanished. But the audio-only one says 0 length in the Info screen, though it does play for the full hour, and I can fast forward/rewind and the green bar works like any other 1 hour show.

Don't know what the problem is, but I've found it a lot easier to inert videos using tivoserver.
