just my 2 cents.

Thanx again for the awesome info..

Do you know of any program that can tell me if the MKV is VFR? as this would be awesome, and save time, so I don't try to convert those files...

Do you think that TSREMUX will have problems with VFR files? or 1080 stuff..??

Thanx again..

As this time, I'm not sure how to tell a CFR from a VFR.....I just try MKV2TS 1st, and if it's not playing properly, then I just the MKV2VFR>AVI method.

Re TSremux....it's gone silent for the moment on MKV....so I dont know what method he will use for mkv to ts. If he reads the timestamps for both audio and video at container level and just muxes straight into TS, theres a good chance his method will solve the VFR issue...but who knows. 1080p, that will depend on the Tvix...

Right now, if MKV2TS gives you problems, 99% of the time, MKV2VFR >AVI will solve it...so lobby Divco to support the AVI file that MKV2VFR produces...Tomacro did...

Well, not completely OK for me, still waiting for DViCo to support mkv or MKV2VFR avi's

I've noticed that my video freezes mostly happen with hddvd rips, bluray rips usually work now though... For now I'm happy knowing that I CAN play some 720p movies, and I remain hopeful that either MKV2TS, TSRemux or DViCo come up with a definitive solution in the end.

Have you had any response from dvico on the MKV2vfr>AVI's?

I've tried emailing them, but unfortunately i only got the standard responsemail from them regarding MKV and such: "we're working on it but we don't know when it'll be done. you'll see when it's ready" (in a nutshell )

Yeah, if i had known about the (somewhat) crappy customer service i think i would've given the TViX some more thought, but nevertheless: i'm happy with the device, it does most of what it's supposed to do . They have been working on new firmware lately over at DViCo's, but this last one is about fixing some other bugs first... We'll see where it goes from here

I tried converting a ts that wouldn't play properly to WMV-HD... I might use that method as a very last resort if the file plays properly, but it takes waaay to long to use on a regular basis (10h for a 1h45m movie)...

In summary...you sound happy with your purchase....so that's good!

Sure am... Before i had this media streamer i only watched divx/xvid anyway and it plays that without any probz... Found out yesterday my 10h conversion to WMV-HD didn't go as planned either... It had no sound But that has nothing to do with the TViX, probably some faulty codec on my pc

Does anyone know how to convert a regular subtitle file to a subtitle file that will play in sync with a 720p/1080i/1080p MKV movie file (maybe decreasing the frame rate)?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Not sure what you mean as subs in MKV's are embedded...

mkvmerge's man page says this...

For text subtitles you can either use some Windows software (like SubRipper) or the subrip package found in transcode(1)'s sources (in contrib/subrip). The general process is:

1. extract a raw subtitle stream from the source:
$ tccat -i /path/to/copied/dvd/ -T 1 -L | \\
tcextract -x ps1 -t vob -a 0x20 | \\
subtitle2pgm -o mymovie

2. convert the resulting PGM images to text with gocr:
$ pgm2txt mymovie.

3. spell-check the resulting text files:
$ ispell -d american *txt

4. convert the text files to a SRT file:
$ srttool -s -w -i mymovie.srtx -o mymovie.srt

The resulting file can be used as another input file for mkvmerge:

$ mkvmerge -o mymovie.mkv mymovie.avi mymovie.srt

When you say the source, do you mean the original BluRay or HDDVD disc? If that's correct, then I'm out of luck as I only have the ripped MKV file. I download the regular subtitle file from the internet, some of which run at 23.997 fps and some run at 30fps. That's why I need a way to manipulate the regular subtitle file to work with the MKV file.

Thanks for taking the time and reply. Appreciate your help.

Some ripped MKV files don't have subs and I would like to insert the subs in there, but I don't have the original BluRay or HDDVD disc. Some MKV files are captured from HDTV which don't have subs either.

mkv can hold multiple subtitles at a time. You should be able to just add your additional subtitles using mkvmerge. I'd read the manual for the specific options.

What method are you guys using to split large TS files (that were created from MKV2TS), to several smaller files??

I have convert several MKV to TS using .86 version of mkv2ts, but find that when I use my normal programs to split the TS files, the split parts (every files after the 1st one), play, but only have audio, no video.. This is true on Tvix, and computer, using media player, nero, etc...

The first file plays perfect on all devices...

I have tried "nullpacketstripper", and TSsplitter...


What am I doing wrong??

If I try other TS files I download for testing, they work perfect... only with mkv2ts, do I have these issues...

Thanx..
