I'm not sure if this is just for "free" methods, but I received a copy of Adobe Elements 4.0, and then I DVR'd a UF basketball game for a few minutes while it was playing. Then, I went back, plugged in the firewire cable, and opened the program. I went straight to the "record" function, hit play on the DVR'd game footage, and hit Record in Elements, and it recorded the game, PERFECTLY! It took a long time to convert and whatever it did, but the end result was a perfect picture, with no sound problems, and it looked just like the game did on my SetTopBox.

I think I found all I needed.

Did you change your setup ever since you encountered all the problems transferring video via the firewire?

This was on a PC...Media Edition. I did all the other steps in this thread in order for the PC to "identify" the SA 8300HD. I've tried VLC, and DVHS, to no avail.

I did not change any type of setup that I'm aware of, and I've probably destroyed some things on my computer in the process, but I was able to record without any problems. On the Elements program video playback of the game, it looked terrible.....like half the screen was pixelated, and the other was fine...but when I went into the file I saved it in, and played with Showtime (Nero) or better yet, with RealPlayer....It looked great.

I kid you not....the picture looked exactly like it did on the TV...in HD. I believe the game was on CBSHD, so I'm not sure how well it will do on another channel.

I could try to record a movie, to see how it works, say...from HBO or something. I'm really trying to get this to work for football games in HD.

I am not computer literate, but I'm highly interested in this stuff, so be patient if I don't answer you the way you'd like. Coax me through what you want to know, and I'll try my best to answer.

Thanks.

Hi. I have had the 8300HD for years now, and I always dump my favorite documentaries to my computer and convert them to MPEG2 to put on DVDs and H264 MPEG4s for iPod/iPhone to watch between classes.
While History Channel, A&E, etc etc standard def 480i's were always open to save and convert ever since I started saving stuff to DVD and iTunes in like '01/'02, the HD versions are now copy protected sometimes. The EMI is always "copy once" like the HBO and pay stations. ScienceHD is always open, but History and A&E seem to usually be "copy once". There's a number of documentaries that have full HD versions that I'd really like to save to DVD (HD channels downconvert to DVD with settings I'll email to anyone that wants them in Compressor3 so well that they're almost indistinguishable from the HD original on my 42" tv in my room, and I'm EXTREMELY anal), and I was curious WHY Brighthouse Networks in Orlando was copy protecting standard programming like A&E. I'd also like to know how to defeat that protection and save/convert the stuff that I should normally be able to save/convert. Is there anyone I could PM that works for Brighthouse that could give me an answer to this...or has anyone here figured out how to allow a codec change? (specifically to one of the only 2 useful codecs...H264 and MPEG2)
Even Universal HD allows completely free copying of their movies, and virtually all other HD specialty stations. So this is kind of vexing.

Thanks much everyone,
Alex

Is it photoshop elements that you are talking about or something else.

What file format does it record to? Does it remain a .ts transport stream or is it a .wmv, etc?

I tried Elements 4.0 out and it would initially crash everytime I launched it. I narrowed it down to the STB drivers. If those were disabled, the program would launch, but of course I couldn't record anything because my STB was N/A. Oh well, back to the Mac method.

Nobody has really answered my question but for those of you who are able to record do you sometimes get flickers in the screen and twitches. Sometimes it will only happen for a split second but other times it will go on for like 2 seconds. Its rather annoying and its preventing me from making perfect rips. I've run the files through mpeg2repair but the glitches in the video are still visible.

Here's an example of what the glitch in the video looks like


Its really annoying and I'm wondering if its TSReader's fault or its the actual dvr.

It is Microsoft's bad FireWire driver from what I can tell. Apparently it works fine on a Mac.

This sounds great. Will it transfer the Dolby Digital soundtrack properly too? I don't mind doing it the multi-step way (convert m2t to some intermediate format, then burn to DVD), but that leaves a stereo soundtrack. If I can get the 5.1 soundtrack without hassle, it'll easily be worth paying for VisualHub.

You can actually convert the .M2T file to MPEG on a PC using videoredo plus. The process takes about 20 minutes for a 2 hour show. It will retain the 5.1 audio. You can then feed the resulting file directly to nerovision express. I do this all the time and it works great. In nerovision express you can even create your own menu and chapter points. Videoredo plus is not free but not very expensive either. www.videoredo.com

For those of you on a PC videoredo will work on .ts files. Its a fantastic easy to use editor to get rid of those commercials. and it fixes broken streams.

I myself convert the HD stream in HD divx at a resolution of 1280x720 using the high defination profile. If you do a 2 pass encode setting your bitrate to 3500bps you will not be able to tell the difference between the original HD stream and the DIVX file. But a word of caution. Its fine if you want to play it on your PC but there are not many dvd players or settop media players that can play this format. The 2 that I know of are the buffalo linktheater (discontinued) and the MVIX media player. They are just now coming out with media players that play H.264.

for the guy who got the macbook...the m2t files open with MPEG Streamclip where you can "cut" the commercials and/or "trim" the length, then "save as" to a .TS file...this is the full 1080i or 720p file with the AC3 track intact.
Handbrake can then open that and convert it to the required format.
Skip any PC nonsense, going into bootcamp to install trojan-filled codecs to run buggy programs on a 32-bit OS (many with 32-bit file size limitations that causes errors instead of displaying their inability to do so) is a waste.
Handbrake is effortless, and also rather feature-filled if you want to find-tune the output. MPEG Streamclip is really stable. The only times I've had it freeze up are when I had an overwhelming amount of data-breaks in the m2t file ("overwhelming" on any c2d mac is a lot more than "overwhelming" on the same c2d pc, in my experience...i have both a pc and a mac to work on...and my 2.4Ghz, 4GB ram macbook pro encodes faster than my 2.8ghz 4gb ram vista x64 pc)

Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0 and I can't remember what it saves as, but you can convert it immediately to mpeg (.mpg) in the program.

I wish I could show you the video, but I'm not sure how to upload it for you to see.

Here are some screenshots of my converted game using the program.....it's as clear as the game was on TV, and was 720p...full widescreen.....






These are smaller than the actual picture, so they may look a little distorted, but I had no pixelations, and it was the best, pure picture I've seen yet, out of all I've read on here and tried.

Argh. Can you go through your exact install procedure including drivers? Myself and a couple of others tried this and Elements crashes as soon as you try to capture.

Thanks,

I'd be really grateful if you could post your entire setup process for us as well. I just came across this thread as I'm amassing episodes of a TV series onto my DVR that I'd like to put on DVD. After reading through all of the pages and coming across your success with Adobe Premier Elements (which sounds like it may be the easiest tool to use out of any of those mentioned thus far!), I'm hoping this may finally be a reliable solution for ripping recorded programs off our 8300's. When you find some free time could you please give us the procedure?

Is it normal to be able to cap only SD and not HD?

I have the SA8300HD and I followed the instructions in this thread.

I use CapDVHS and I can capture SD without problem. But whenever I try any HD channels the program just freezes and I get nothing.

Is this normal? Anyone have this kind of experience?

Thanks!

^Hi Robby23,

Thanks for replying to me.

Well, I only tried it with Live TV.

Should I try it with a recorded show? What would be the difference?

I can cap SD live tv and also SD recorded tv. That works fine, without any problem at all.

Thanks!

^Update to that post above:

Well, I now tried it also with a recorded show and the same thing happened.

It's strange though because I can cap SD just fine. Both from live TV and recorded TV.

But anytime I try capping HD, my PC freezes...

Even attempting to play HDTV through VLC freezes the PC. I never see any picture or hear any audio. It just instantly freezes once I hit the play button.

Don't feel too bad....I get instant freezes with SA8300HD Firewire to D-VHS....HD, but not SD,
whether under old Passport Echo or new Navigator operation system.

And "live" SD recordings are unreliable...

Alex,
Whatever you do dont let them take your 8300HD and replace it with the 8300HDC, the firewire ports on the 8300HDC are not enabled per Brighthouse in Central Florida.

It means SD programs break up while watching LIVE via Firewire I/F to DVHS.

Which guarantees SD program LIVE recordings on DVHS also have frequent dropouts.

I haven't had a chance to try playing back SD/HD recordings from DVR to DVHS....

Can someone with with a working VLC setup please do the following and post the results here? I cannot get any output from VLC. It shows that there's data coming in, but it doesn't seem to know what to do with it. At this point I think I need to find the proper 'demuxer' for it to use.

1. Open VLC
2. Click 'View' > 'Messages...' (or ctrl-M)
3. Clear the message window.
4. Open the SA8300 the way you normally do.
5. Let it play for a second.
6. Stop the video.
7. Copy/Paste the text in the message box here (or send me a PM).

Here's what I get in the messages when it tries to play:

main debug: using access2 module "dshow"
main debug: pre buffering
main debug: received first data for our buffer
main debug: prebuffering done 48128 bytes in 0s - 505 kbytes/s
main debug: creating demux: access='dshow' demux='' path=''
main debug: looking for demux2 module: 45 candidates
ts warning: TS module discarded (lost sync)

@Koolguy

Try recording with TSReader. I can record any program just fine except some stations I can't record prerecorded shows like CBSHD. Thats the only station I've come accross that I was unable to record but I still get constant loss of packets.

I'm only able to record prerecorded shows and when I try I get tons of drops. When I asked this about half a page up I was told it was due to windows firewire drivers. Is there a way to prevent this and if it is due to windows drivers do you know of a good program to use in linux specifically ubuntu?

One of the errors specifically the one at 0:11:06 has an output that looks like this:



I went back and checked if the video on the dvr itself was damaged but it wasnt.

If anyone has any idea how to prevent this please help. Thanks

Alright gents....

It's a no-go. I tried again with a Law and Order episode, and it had problems. I haven't tried with a longer video, but the Law and Order was only for 5 minutes.

However, I hear of a capture device coming out by Hauppauge, that reads HDMI, and outputs to firewire to the computer in Mpeg-2...I think.

This may be our best option.

Maybe CBS is okay to record, maybe NBC isn't. I followed this thread to the teeth, but added Adobe later. The basketball game footage is perfect, but only about 2.5 minutes. However, there's no way I could tell you my EXACT setup.

I've got Blades of Glory on my DVR (don't ask, my wife recorded it), so I'll try to capture some of it to see if it works. Other than that, I can't tell you any more than what this thread does.

Sorry....
