  1. I am trying to archive some family vhs tapes that we have and I recorded the video file with a Hauppauge HD PVR2 in Ts format since MP4 didn't allow me to go over 4 gigs. There is a spot halfway into the movie that the camcorder stopped and restarted and it captured this section this just fine. When I play the source file in VLC the audio is in sync. When I take the same file and burn it onto a dvd, as soon as the movie gets to that halfway point the audio becomes out of sync. What could cause the source file to be ok but the authored dvd to have this issue? I have tried to use AVStoDVD and Cyberlink PowerDirector and both have the same issue.

    In the AVStoDVD preferences, at the Avisynth tab, set video and audio source filters to FFMpegSource.
    Save the preferences and create a new project with your troublesome file.

    If it still glitches you may have to cut it in two and convert them separately

    So I just tried this and the dvd took 3 days to encode non stop for some reason. I just tried the dvd and it does the same thing. What else could I try?

    A few suggestions.

    1. Post a mediainfo (text mode) report of the original Ts capture.
    2. There is a log file from avstodvd in the highest level folder from your encode. Post that here as well.
    3. Do a new capture - 30 seconds before the camera issue and 30 seconds after. Upload that here so that we can hopefully also see the problem.

    I do not see the 4 gig issue unless you are capturing in HD. Hence the reason for the above.

    Thnx.

    Will await the new capture. At present I do see a slight variation between the original run time and the encoded one. Albeit a few fractions of a second.

    I am more concerned with the capture inasmuch that both video and audio are highly compressed >> the video is now recomprseed to some 50% of original whereas the audio is left alone. There was a time when mp2 audio was not compatable for ntsc dvd. Pls confirm that you are in ntsc land.

    Might I also suggest you do another short capture as originally requested but using a different audio codec which forces re-encoding. Upload both captures.

  7. So I encoded the TS file to mpeg with CyberLink Power Director and now when I add the file to AVS2DVD there is 0MS audio delay so I think this would fix my problem but the file is 5.6GB so it doesn't fit on a DVD5. There must be way to fit 1.5h hours of VHS footage on a DVD5?

    video file size has always equaled bitrate x time. so you need to encode to the proper bitrate to fit on a dvd5. use a calculator like - http://dvd-hq.info/bitrate_calculator.php#Calculator to make sure everything fits.

    there are a lot more experinced people on here than me
    BUT
    6389 bit rate from a VHS tape ?
    I would try a new capture at 4000 bit rate ( i really think there will be NO visual difference ) this will fit 2 hrs with NO problem
    i would also do (2) captures stopping then restarting at your break point
    when converted to DVD, they will play straight through non stop, depending on the settings used in the authoring software
    in most cases titles/files play continuously

    of course you can use the existing file, author a dvd for double layer 8.5gig disc
    then use DVDshrink, to create a 4.7g single layer dvd

    I don't think I can specify the bitrate when capturing with my Hauppauge HD PVR2 and their software. I will try to create 2 captures but what I notice when I view the VHS tape on the tv, the sound comes on and then video follows shortly after but it seems to be in sync, well if its out of sync on the VHS, you can hardly tell. But I never thought of adding two video files when authoring the DVD, I am pretty sure this would make them play straight through like you mentionned.
