Yep. The earlier CM DVR (DTVPalDVR) did this just fine.

Thanks! The STBX1000101 is one of the USB drives recommended (and sold by) Channel Master for the DVR+. If you haven't reported that even their recommended drive is throwing the False disk error, please do so, as that may get their attention.

Thank you! I was used to DVR > BACK to get to schedule and the three clicks of DVR > FFWD > FFWD gets me there almost as quickly. I would have never found that.

Extracting Subtitles from a DVR+ TS video




If you would like to extract the subtitles from a DVR+ TS recording, here’s one way to do it:

1. Download and install CCExtractor. It’s freeware.

2. Convert the TS recordings, otherwise CCExtractor doesn’t find any subtitles in the original TS file, at least not with what I've tried. Video conversion can be done using the converter option in DVR+ Lister, or however you’ve been converting them. Here’s the ffmpeg code I used for the test:
  • Input parameters: -i
  • Output parameters: -map 0 -c:v copy -c:a copy
  • Output file type: TS
If you’ve been converting using other parameters, give them a try as they may also produce a video conversion file that CCExtractor can use.

3. Run CCExtractor, and adjust the setting in all tabs as shown in the attached screenshots. Other settings might also work, that’s up to you to try. If the subtitles contain UDF-8 characters (such as musical symbols), be sure to set the “Encoding” to UTF-8 on the Output (2) Tab. Other settings may need adjusting, depending upon the show, and which subtitles to extract? After making the adjustments, go to the first tab, “About & Save”, and click the button “Save current options as default”.

4. Drag and drop the TS files to be processed (as many as you'd like) onto the box on the 2nd tab, “Input files”.

5. Go to the last tab, “Execution”, and click the “Start” button. As each TS file is processed, a preview of the subtitles being produced are shown in the preview window.

I’m Central Time, but my Rovi guide is filled through 7:30PM, Tuesday July 14.

The last Rovi update was 6/29/2015 at 11:39PM, before I requested a Rovi update, which took a little while, but now it goes through 8:30PM Tuesday July 14.

After the update, for Sunday 7/12, at 7:00PM Central, the NBC airing is Miss USA Pageant, so I guess that show has not been updated with current events.

Thanks. TMS on Zap2It and TitanTV are showing TBA. I guess it will filter down soon. I scheduled it to record to see what happens. It doesn't take much to keep me amused.

CM updated their list of "Recommended EHD"

A few minutes ago I noticed that CM updated their list of Recommended External Hard Drives for the DVR+ model CM7500GB16 (click the Technical Specifications tab), and it includes 4 WD drives. Still none over 3TB. Here's what it says:

Quote:
Recommended External Hard Drives
While many other external hard drives will work with the DVR+, Channel Master can not guarantee that all other external hard drives will be compatible.

500GB Slim EHD by Seagate (STCD500102)
500GB EHD by Seagate (STEA500400)
1TB EHD by Seagate (STBU1000100)
1TB EHD by Seagate (STBX1000101)
1TB EHD by Seagate (STEA1000400)
1TB EHD by Seagate (STDR1000100)
3TB EHD by Seagate (STCA3000101)
3TB EHD by Seagate (STBV3000100)
1TB EHD by WD (WDBZFP0010BBK)
1TB EHD by WD (WDBUZG0010BBK)
2TB EHD by WD (WDBU6Y0020BBK)
2TB EHD by WD (WDBMWV0020BTT)

As they say, many drives will work. I assume the oness they list are just the ones they've gotten around to testing thoroughly.

I wonder if anyone has retried the Seagate drive known not to work since 124R was released? There's at least an outside chance CM/E* fixed something. It's worth a shot at least.

BTW, I've experienced a couple of instances of the DVR+ locking up when watching Internet channels. My Internet connection has sucked since Sprint bought out Clearwire, so maybe it only happens with a bad Internet connection, but it shouldn't happen at all.
