I used meGUI to transcode the AAC to AC3.
I used TSmuxeR to remux the video stream and the new AC3 audio stream. In TSmuxeR under "General track options" I selected the change level and made it 4.1.
I then started muxing into a m2ts container.
Then I copied the original ts file and the new m2ts file to a USB flash drive and inserted it into the PS3. The PS3 wouldn't even reveal the original ts file but played the newly created m2ts file perfectly.
This took all of a minute as NO encoding was necessary.
I'd like to have a batchable remux process; so I tried ~what you describe, but on a couple of different full-length (100+ minutes) captures. [The ~? As it happens beSweet, which I see is what meGui uses for audio encoding, won't run in my test system, it always crashes after about 100 seconds of audio; so I used DaudioK to transcode from AAC to AC3; with no command line, it's not really what I want, but at least it didn't crash]
Anyway, the output files play OK on the PS3 for short stretches, a couple of minutes or so, but then the video turns choppy - it looks like maybe 4 fps. When it does that it shows the datarate has nosedived from around 12Mbps to around 3. If I pause the PS3, then hit Play again, it is fine for a while. If I back up it will even play the "bad" part OK. And it is the same whether burned to DVD or streamed from TVersity.
I wanted to try to reproduce your result, but when I search AVS for "gta4-1080i.ts" I only find - your post! Can you check the name and/or possibly provide a link for it? Are you sure it came from a HDPVR? And, do you remember how long it was?
What settings did you use - especially, did you enable or disable the "add picture timing info" and "continually insert sps/pps" options?
Have you (or anyone else) tried this process with longer TSs? If so, with what results?
