I've converted the bcdmux utility program I wrote to a very nice windows utility called HDTVtoMPEG2. This program, like bcdmux, automatically converts HiPix HDTV files to DVD player compatible MPEG2 files. Unlike bcdmux, it is easy to use and has a nice progress meter, etc.
I have used your new program and BCDMUX and am having the same problem. It seemed to work fine with some 1080i content from CBS, but it just gives me an empty file when I try 480p FOX content. No errors and it seems to convert but I get nothing.
Not only is the FOX content 480p, but FOX here is 44-2, the second channel. What do you think might be the problem?
It's using a different channel number. To be honest, I used the program bbdemux.exe to have it scan the file for the pid's before converting. I will put the scan function in HDTVtoMPEG as soon as i can. For right now, just try 0x21/0x24, then 0x31/0x34, etc. until it works. Sorry.
