Accidentally I recorded the Super Bowl on my DVR on the SD Fox channel instead of the HD one. I really want to see the original full HD broadcast with commercials and all, just like if I had recorded the right one. I was able to get straight from someone else's DVR the full 5.1 Dolby MPEG recording of the game, uncompressed. It is the same as if I had recorded it, but now I need to figure out a way to get it onto my TV/receiver. I burned it onto a Blu-Ray, and it's the same quality as if I had recorded it properly, but there is one problem.
There are no chapters on the Blu-Ray. There would not be chapters on a live broadcast either, but with my DVR remote I can skip, etc. The Blu-Ray player just lets me scrub. Is there a way I can add chapters to the .mpg file and re-burn the disc, while maintaining the same/not altering the video quality and surround sound?

I've tried searching this online, but all the results are stuck in like 2006 since people don't use mpeg files anymore, with the exception of cable companies.
So I was able to figure it out..by converting the .mpg to a Blu-Ray ISO with tsMuxer, also adding the chapters with that program. Then I burn the ISO and it plays great. The only problem is later on in the video, the audio gets out of sync. I'm not sure exactly why since the .mpg is perfect, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's because tsMuxer detects the video as being 59.94 FPS, when it reality it is the exact NTSC standard (60,000/1001) which equates to about 59.94005994005994. It's very minor, but over a long recording the rounding eventually gets the audio out of sync.
I'm not sure if that would cause it, or how to fix it, but I'm almost there to getting this thing done.
The longterm solution is to ditch disc playback completely and go for a NAS without expandable storage and a media player capable of 4K material to future proof a bit. I use a Popcorn A-500 media player.https://www.cloudmedia.com/?product=a-500 Cinavia is not an issue either which could be a problem with disc playbackBeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
