  1. Hi,

    1)
    I currently use(d) Project-X to demux DvB ts to .mpv/mpa. Then VirtualDubMod and Mpeg2Schnit to CAP/edit these and then DVDlab to master DvDs.
    Having been forced to get a new DVB TV stick (the old one took to smoking and coughed its last), the new one, I'm presented with this new fancy HD stuff (DivX in new clothes?). Anyways I need new software to replace these if possible, otherwise I can stick with mp2.

    2)
    My new capture's a Hauppauge stick with WinTV 10. The software goes tilt far too often, and it limits .ts capture to 4GB. I think this is marketing ploy to get me/you/us to purchase a dual or quad capture device. Any ideas.

    TIA

    Bill too

  4. As I'm unsure what I really need 74 (ALT-GR 4 isn't working bl**dy 8.1) seems a bit OTT. I think I can live with what I know, than what maybe an even worse can of worms.

    Thanks anyway

    Bill

    If you don't like Argus TV, try NextPVR for recording. You might also try Cypheros TS-Doctor for editing. It is a frame-accurate TS editor which does not require you to demux your recordings. TS-Doctor is paid software but relatively inexpensive. Sometimes convenience is worth paying for.

  7. Don't know if it fits OP's needs but I've been pleased with DVBCut when I had to edit MPEG-TS videos.

    ProjectX will only work with SDTV mpeg2 video and won't handle mp4 or HDTV that's why the shift to TSDoctor as it does everything ProjectX did and more..

    Bill 2's initial post indicated that he would like to have new software that is able to work with the HDTV recordings from his new TV stick, if possible.

    The OP is speaking of off air TV recordings in the UK ie PAL same as in Australia and Europe. HDTV is normally mpeg4 with 1920 x 1080 resolution with a variety of sound specs from Dolby 5.1 to plain vanilla 2 channel. Standard TV channels are mpeg2 with mp1 audio. ProjectX will not handle HDTV files as it was designed for mpeg2 transport streams ie SDTV TS files. It expects a MPEG2 TS format.

    OK, That's clear to me now, thank you, op could transpose h264 stream to mpeg2 in high quality and cut the mpeg2 then recode it to h264 again. Did that for years until i wrote my own cutting programm for cutiing the original ts/h264 and after that I recode it to h264 with ffmpeg to reduce the filesize.

  13. Ok, forgot something avi demux works also very good with h264 streams, it all depends on the keyframe, the higher the compression the more inacurate, I work with dvbc and my original streams have average bitratie of at least 6000 kb, no problems, don't know about dvb t2 but it's worth a try

    Why bother with multi-program use when one program TSDoctor will do it all in one step? It will clean up any transmission errors, provide easy cutting out of commercials, if any, top and tail and in the process you can deselect any unnecessary tracks like subtitles or audio tracks.

    I agree with netmask56's comments. A specialty editor for OTA recordings captured as TS streams, such as TS-Doctor, beat the free alternatives, such as AVIDemux, which fall over when they encounter transmission errors in a TS stream.
