    Can I transfer my dvd movie to DTivo?

    OK, I have a hacked S2 Dtivo that is running 6.2, I like to tranfer some of my movies that I just got currently store on my PC, could I just tranfer this to my tivo since I don't want to burn in on DVD and watch it from my DTivo. TIA

    Check out the tivoserver support thread for the answer. Hint: it's yes.
    Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!

    you can also bypass tivoserver and use these files and scripts

    first if it is an encrypted dvd you will have to decrypt it .. then these scripts run on the dvd vob files..

    C:\utils>cat mplvob.bat
    ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.vob -f mpeg2video -s 720x480 -r 29.97 -b 2000 -aspect 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:\tivo-store\%1.ty

    here is one to convert mpgs
    C:\utils>cat mplmpg.bat
    ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.mpg -f mpeg2video -s 720x480 -r 29.97 -b 2000 -aspect 4:3 -an j:\tivo-store\%1.m2v
    ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.mpg -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:\tivo-store\%1.ty

    C:\utils>

    here is one to convert .avis

    C:\utils>cat mpl.bat
    ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.avi -f mpeg2video -s 720x480 -r 29.97 -b 2000 -aspect 4:3 -an j:\tivo-store\%1.m2v
    ffmpeg -y -i j:\tivo-store\%1.avi -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:\tivo-store\%1.ty

    C:\utils>




    I have had good luck with these making stuff and putting it back on the tivo..

    also use dvdx to convert from mpg to avi if needed

    mplex version?

    lgkahn:
    What version of mplex are you using to do this?
    The versions I have on both my linux and windows machines do not have a -f 10 option.

    Thanks in advance for you help.

    For the UK Series 1 I've changed it to this...

    ffmpeg -y -i c:\x\test.avi -f mpeg2video -s 480x576 -b 4000 -r 25 -aspect 4:3 -an c:\x\x.m2v
    ffmpeg -y -i C:\x\test.avi -f mp2 -ab 192 -ar 32000 -ac 2 c:\x\x.m2a
    C:\x\mplex -f 10 -r 4000 c:\x\x.m2v c:\x\x.m2a -o c:\x\test.ty
    del c:\x\x.m2v
    del c:\x\x.m2a

    Then use Filezilla (Port 3105) to transfer it up to the TIVO

    Thank you
