I have a bit rate question..........
I'm using a PVR 1212 with Hauppauge Capture, latest HC and driver versions.
I capture 1080i information from my DirecTV box, TS format, mux to Blu-Ray format using TSmuxer, burn BR disc with Imgburn.
My issue is that I get smoother BR disc play back (tried 2 different BR players) with the VBR bit rate, than with CBR.
I set my bite rate slider to 13.5 max for both the VBR and CBR. The CBR video had an extremely slight judder, looks like it drops a frame every so many seconds.
If I look at the VBR and CBR capture of the same video source using MediaInfo, the VBR averages 11, 18 max, CBR 14 avg, 18 max. The CBR capture has slightly better image detail so I would prefer to use CBR.
Anyone have any reasons why my CBR capture should have that slight judder over the VBR?
Would running the original CBR capture through TSdoctor, or another app help?
Would another capture app, such as, Showbiz, d o better? any recommendations?
