    If you are recording it on a SA TiVo, you can either:
    -Use TiVoWeb to change the resolution to 352x480 or 720x480 before recording it.
    -Use DVD Patcher to patch the 1st header to 352x480, to trick...

    Pro-289:
    MPEG2VCR only re-encodes the areas around the cutpoints, to rebuild the frames before and after the cut. AFAIK, there is no quality loss.

    4 steps is a lot? I beg to differ, since I have seen my fair share of 6+ step processes out there.

    TyTool7, for example (IMHO an excellent stand-alone solution) requires the following steps:

    :confused: Besweet uses SSRC as its upsampling engine! Never had any problems converting 32k MP2->48k AC3. What type of conversion were you doing?

    MP2 audio is not DVD compliant. It will play on many of the players, but not all (my friend's Sony being one of them). AC3 is compliant, and therefore I convert all of my shows to that format.

    You can also try just creating the D2V file in DVD2AVI, and using that as the video source in TMPGEnc. I have found from experience that performance is way better than using the M2V.

    Are you running Beta2 or greater? I had the same problem with TyProcess using Beta1, and the problem went away with Beta2.

    Quickest method of resizing?

    What is the quickest way to resize a MPEG file (i.e change from 480x480 to 720x480 or 352x480)? I know that this can be done by re-encoding, but it is very time consuming.

    MPEG2VCR works well for me, although I am using SA streams encoded @ 720x480. Might be different for DTivo.
