What video tool would be used to reduce the size of a captured stream (via broadcast)
with the file spec above as 1080i.h264-NX.ts?
I'm not used to seeing the .ts file extension at all. How can it be massaged into a smaller size
at a lower resolution appropriate for viewing on the old CRT in a reasonable size?

VLC is what I normally use on a desktop older AMD 3 core.
I've used Handbrake and it's redesigned sibling VidCoder because it allows me use lower resolution of the program (it can ise Mr. Magoo icons) rather than higher. And low res seems to work very well on CRT as many stream rips will attest. I'm quite amazed at what can be done in a 500mb size for 45 mins. But the really tiny size files which some put out (190 mb or so for 45 mins.) are still beyond what I know.
I do not know command line technique and have no special command line instructions that I can recall.
One of the pros here may be able to answer.
When Handbrake reports the Quality on it's slider, re-saving at a higher (meaning lower in this strange usage) should give a smaller file size.
If I'm not mistaken, recent releases of Vidcoder straightened this problem out.
It's at least worth a look. Vidcoder uses the Handbrake core but has modified the
screen interface for better readability at low resolutions and function. There is a help forum for it as well.
