Ok for the last few days I have been trying to get this to work. Here is what I want to do. I have a bunch of dvd's decrypted to my hard drive all files are in vob format. Now i want to take those vob files and be able to create a single file to use with tivoserver but for the life of me I can't get it to work. I can't seem to get any thing to play. Is ther a step by step guide for a newbie to tivoserver that can help me achieve my goal.

well if you decripyt them to a single vob file you can use ffmpeg and mplex to create a tivo .ty file but I have not had much success.. the videos are fine but very often the sound it slightly out of sync with the video.

I have tried that but when i upload the file to the ty directory and then go to nowplaying it says that the file has 0:00 min and then the tivo reboots. SO I was hoping to to use tivoserver. I was hoping to take the vob's and create amg or something like that to use with tivoserver

an mpg is not a .ty just dev decrypt to a single .vob and ffmpeg and mplex to create a .ty from the vob

ie
C:\utils>cat mplvob.bat
ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.vob -f mpeg2video -s 720x480 -r 29.97 -b 2000 -asp
ect 4:3 -an j:\tivo-store\%1.m2v
ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.vob -f mp2 -ab 192 -ar 32000 -ac 2 j:\tivo-store\%
1.m2a
c:\mplex\mplex -f 10 -r 3000 j:\tivo-store\%1.m2v j:\tivo-store\%1.m2a -o j:\tiv
o-store\%1.ty

C:\utils>
