    I use VLC too. I find the muxed vobs have wierd timestamps in VLC (ie a 22 min show appears as 9 minutes or so), but after processing through the DVDauthor stage they play "better". It can't always find the Title menu though but you can use the menu options to jump between titles to test everything in the DVD image.

    Data space left on TiVo

    Hi jdiner,

    I love your program and use it a LOT (yes, a paypal contribution will be coming soon). I was hoping that in one of the new releases that you could add a feature that would REALLY make my life simpler. I know on startup TyTool displays the free space available on my PC's drive. That's useful, but I also need to know how much space is left on my TiVo (both drives). Often I don't know what kind of space is left on the TiVo and therefore how soon I need to pull the recordings and burn them to DVD.

    With my busy life it would be a great way to take a quick look so I can see if I need to download some things now, or if I have some time left. Thanks!!

    That message comes because you have a chapter point on a non-closed GOP. But every GOP in a TIVO stream is NOT CLOSED. Further it is just a warning, not an error. By going back to an older version of DVDAuthor all that was accomplished was that the warning isn't printed anymore. The base engine still works in the same way.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't find it with my search. I do appreciate you answering my question anyways...

    Thos.

    Oh Lord, please NO!!! That's the reason I waited months for this build of TyTool. I have seven critical Tystreams that display the "Infinite Holes" (as I call it) error. Now I'm dreading trying them.

    Otherwise Josh, great job!

    I've found a way to fix these holes. You dump the stream to punch cards then put masking tape over hole G12 if there are more than 6 of them punched in a row. Be sure to put the tape on both sides of the cards before you run the stacks through the reader or they get a little sticky.

    As always, your mileage might vary.

    Punch cards? What are you, 90? Can't this be made to work with paper tape?

    I suppose you can try paper tape if you're willing to risk a technology which is new and untested.

    I know it's not the norm, but I actually used paper tape and 8" floppy disks before I ever had to punch a deck and submit it. Of course it was all on TTYs and everything was CAPITALIZED.

    You youngsters had it so easy. Try threading your own core.

    ...and that damn Navy woman, always getting in the way...

    Brilliant computer scientist was she.. Thanks for the suggestions guys. Since I was top of the class in Fortran and Cobol in High School I'll start feeding the TyStreams to the TTY/Card punching machine in the basement.... I'll get the holes fixed...

    Oh don't be a Luddite.

    Saw that Navy woman speak once. As BustedSony said, she really was brilliant, but I'm not sure I can wrap my brain around this newfangled C-10 code she's on about.

Should I ignore the warning and burn as a data disc anyway? Should I select a UDF DVD-ROM?
    I tried using Nero 6 and had lousy results. I finally uninstalled it, and now use ImgTool and ImgBurn (both free). ImgTool converts the output files of TyTool into an ISO which ImgBurn then burns to a disk. Since switching, I've had very good results... These products work together so it's not even an extra step. Select the folders and it works...

    Also, I use VLC (as mentioned elsewhere here in this thread) to check my files first - seems to work better than PowerDVD did for me.

    Nero 6 is pretty foolproof if you follow the instructions. Set the disc type to DVD-ROM(UDF/ISO) at the bottom of the list of DVD types and enable the XBox compatability setting before burning. If you have problems, odd are you didn't follow the directions or you've got a corrupt system.

    Oh, puh-lease!!!

    You just think she's cute.

    She's a pain in the butt, like that brat who kept talking about setting up a private airline to do overnight deliveries. Sheesh! Like THAT would ever work...

    Your TiVo is FULL.

    Starting with 2.x SW TiVo doesn't actually delete a show until the space is needed - it just marks deleted shows as deleted and removes them from the User Interface.

    TiVoWebPlus I think shows free space (aka the space deleted shows take up). If you keep Suggestions turned on you can use them as a gauge of disk space available.
