  1. Recordings play on S2 DTiVo, video and audio glitches in extractions - help req

    I've been using TyTool with Jamie's improved tserver for proper episode names. Extracted files have audio and video glitches such as messed up macroblocks every so often. Have tried 2 different...

    352 horizontal and 480 vertical? You're viewing at a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio which isn't the ratio used for the recording. That's not a function of TyTool.
  3. pad reference for back side?

    Is there an annotated visual reference for which pads on the back are associated with each component on the front? I seem to recall a T60 board layout diagram here many, many moons ago but not any...
  4. Capacitor replacement articles

    I've been out of town. Here are three articles about upgrading capacitors and other components. Not so sure about the real benefit of inertial weight for a spinning disc. Don't optical video media...

    Wonderful information. Thank you. I'll replace the caps in both power supplies. Cheap caps are also a common issue with cheap disc players. Upgrade the caps and add some weight to the disc clamps so...

    I've swapped power supply and hard drive and found threads about cap replacement as well as adding a cap to bridge the 2nd tuner. There are also some which discuss removing the covers of tuners to...

    Yes, I had forgotten about that. Thanks for your reply.

    I'm going to replace the hard drive first to see if that's the problem. There are a lot of recordings for which the storage size is far too...

    Streams appear to be unencrypted but there are short periods in which blocky smearing happens. Is this common? I see it on locals as well as national channels.

    Got it working. Thanks.
  10. non-RID S2 DTiVo and 6.4a - rebooting loop or working?

    We've recently lost locals on non-RID S2 DTiVos. I've bought the appropriate InstantCake to get a drive image, if needed. The other forum is full of people complaining about reboot loops after...

    Happily satisfied with S2 SD until lately. Lake of widescreen and detail in sports have finally gotten to me. Also, DTVs recorder won't undelete. That's REALLY annoying.

    HR10-250 models - are any RID?

    Are any (all?) of the HR10-250? RID chipped?

    If so, are any of the patches sufficient or is ROM replacement still required?

    If required, does anyone still do this?

    This unit worked fine on both tuners with 3.1.1d so why would there be a problem with 6.2a? I'll check Weakness. Still, electronics don't rot in a couple of years (no pirate capacitors in these...

  17. Does anyone have a HMO for SubSonic on series 2?

    Galleon and such are fine for small numbers of audio. I'm wondering if anyone has tackled a larger streaming server like SubSonic http://subsonic.sourceforge.net/ which can support huge collections...

    There are illegal null values in the IFO files which TyTool creates. Load the IFO set into PGCEdit and it will repair them. Josh should know about the issue but he seems to have gone on a long...
