In the first post of the OP, he told us to generate two .inf files - one for the display and one for the AVR. Then he told us to install the .inf file. Which of the two .inf files is the one to use for the installation?
As we have posted earlier on this topic, if your 1st priority is free editing software and not frame-accurate cuts, the TME version that comes with the Hauppauge 1212 will cut commercials out of the middle of an h.264 recording without re-encoding if you have recorded it in .mkv format. The cuts occur at the key frames, not the frames of your choosing.
I use a Dish 722 DVR for my source, and find that the audio is in sync if, and only if, I wait until I hear the sound and see the sound description (such as 5.1) updated before I click on the "Capture" button in TME.
The version of TME that comes with the Hauppauge HDPVR will cut out commercials without re-encoding if you record the video in .M2TS, but the downside is that you can not make frame-accurate cuts. To do that you need VideoReDo version 4. I have not noticed anything that I would call a "glitch" using TME to make the cuts.
The TME window never needs refreshing during a recording, but sometimes I have to click on the Refresh button while I am setting up the recording. On most occasions I use the HDPVR to record stuff to the computer which I have already recorded on the DVR, so I know ahead of time what the length of the recording will be, and so I can set TME to automatically stop the recording at the appropriate time.
I don't use the HDPVR component pass-through for anything. I put the computer's HDMI output on the HDTV when I use the HDPVR to record the output of the satellite DVR box. I can then monitor the DVR output in the TME record window.
Has anyone tried editing commercials out of the Hauppauge 1212's .TS, .m2ts, and .MP4 files with Adobe's Premier Elements? With Premier Elements can you make frame-accurate cuts? Do you have to re-encode the edited files? And what about AC3 - 5.1 audio tracks: Are they preserved in the edited files??
Wookie, I took your suggestion and made the original recording in .m2ts format, and walaah, the 5.1 audio was preserved after I cut out the commercials, and no re-encoding was necessary. Who'd've thunk it?
dfergie, TME seems to be good enough for now, however after VideoRedo gets Revision 4 H.264 out of beta, I will probably give them a try, mainly to get precise cut points. At this time, I can't see committing $95 to a program which is lacking help files.
I am referring back to my earlier post as quoted above.Using the latest TME software, when I cut commercials out of the middle of a .TS file, TME re-encodes it to a .m2ts file and changes the audio from 6-channel AC-3 to 2-channel AC-3. I can not see any way to prevent the re-encoding and the conversion of the audio to 2-channel.As I understand it, VideoRedo claims that it can output the edited file in .TS format without re-encoding it and preserve the 6-channel AC-3...
