    matter1967,

    So to clarify, you're still using ffmpeg to extract but using mencoder afterward, correct? I've been looking at mencoder's documentation and your Perl script, trying to 'transcode'...
  85. Thanks and a question

    First, thanks to dburckh for a great package. I set it up on my TiVo HDVR2 yesterday afternoon and have been experimenting with it. It's certainly better/easier to use than TyTool was.

    After...

    OT?: Backups and the Hack Directory

    Wasn't quite sure where to post this, I'm sure the mods will move this as necessary...

    A Procedural Question...

    Zak--

    I followed your steps outlined below, except I used TMPGEnc at step 6. I used a DirecTiVo file and ran DGIndex on it as you said, then rand the D2V through DGFix. I got a message from...

    I could use a clue, too... ;)

    Any instructions on implementation would be appreciated. I've backed up a lot of exported .TY files onto data DVDs (before discovering mfs_ftp, natch :() and...

    Where do I get DGFix--is it part of another package?

    Seems to be a major problem, though...

    From reading up, it sounds as if a lot of people are trying to dump/burn content from DTiVos--and more than a couple have noticed/complained about the frame flipping & resultant "shimmering" problem....

    Sorry...

    No offense meant, Fred. Nothing else had been said on the subject, and I was wondering if it had been considered an issue serious enough to solve. I'll go sit quietly on the sidelines now. :)

    Just wondering if anyone's working on this...

    ...and where it would make the most sense to do the correction(s)? Since the DTiVo is putting out the frame-erroneous data, should Tytools make the correction? Or, would another, stand-alone...

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info. Right now I'm just interested in getting them off the DTiVo to guard against a crash. I think I'll just back the TY files up to DVD-ROM for now and await a solution. I hope...

    Thanks for that info. The DVD players I have won't accept the 480x480, and someone I know who's burned a few DVDs tells me it's good practice to transcode to 720x480 as that's more...
