Guys, my first effort; please be kind. I am trying to use H2M2 to simply edit commercials out of a MyHD MDP-130 OTA HD recording, and then play it back again using the MDP, but the result is teeming with random pixelation. It's synchronized, and plays all-the-way thru, but it's as if my PC is not able to "keep up" with the stream. The recording is of the last "NYPD Blue", so I edited this hourlong show from 8+Gb down to 41 minutes and 4.8Gb.
The fact that the pixelation is random suggests to me that the edit is OK (indeed the edit points themselves are clean), just that the PC doesn't like the edited stream or otherwise can't keep up. But arguing against a CPU speed or PCI bus problem is the fact that the Original program plays just fine, and so do things like Timeshift. Further, the original program had another sub-channel embedded (that I selected-out w/H2M2)--wouldn't you think the subsequent stream would be simpler thus easier to play?
So I think maybe my H2M2 setup might be wrong, but don't know how; heck there AREN'T many settings to mess with. Should it play-back the same whether I select Transport Stream or MPEG???
Can y'all please suggest some places to look, before I start messing w/stuff like Pinnacle's PPE (PCI performance enhancement) utility, or overclocking, etc.? FWIW I'm using a Shuttle w/VIA C3 800MHz CPU, and Maxtor 200Gb HDD running at UDMA5, but like I said it works w/more difficult tricks like timeshifting.
