post #931 of 1297
1) What's the source of your recordings?
2) Do they play fine on the PC?
3) Are you archiving multiple files or single file?
4) When you monitor the recording on the JVC do you see the problems on its component outputs?
5) What are your registry settings for TSP2SP?
post #932 of 1297
1) The source is HiPix files on an Athlon 2400+ computer.
2) They play fine on the pc using Videolan
3) Archiving multiple files
4) I don't monitor the JVC during recording, the computer and the Home theater are not close to each other. I have to move the 40k to the computer room to record
5) I don't know what a TSP2SP is. I don't know what my registry settings are.
post #933 of 1297
2) Which MPEG2 decoder do you use?
3) Combine all your files into a single file and see if you still have issues
5) run regedit and go to HKLM\\Software\\DVHS\\TSP2SP and take a snapshop of the registry settings. TSP2SP is the main filter used for sending data to DVHS.
post #934 of 1297
2) I use whatever MPEG2 decoder comes with Videolan I guess. The default one (ffmpeg audio/video decoder?) I just installed videolan on my Windows XP Home edition computer and used whatever it defaults to.
3) What utility can I use to combine a bunch of ts HiPix files into a single file. The pixelation does NOT occur near file break points, if that helps any.
5) Registry Settings are:
AutoRate DWORD 1
CorrectandCompressMode DWORD 0
MaxPcrDelta DWORD 0
PcrOffset DWORD 0
PidFiltering BINARY (zero-length binary value)
SyncInputPin DWORD 0
post #935 of 1297
Delete the "MaxPcrDelta" entry and/or restore the original value of 425 in your registry. This might be your problem.
post #936 of 1297
OK I reported the wrong registry values, the actual values are:

Autorate DWORD 1
CorrectAndCompressMode DWORD 0
DeltaChangeThreshold DWORD 8000
MaxPcrDelta DWORD 425
PcrOffset DWORD 0
PidFiltering Binary (zero length binary value)
StartupPacketInterval DWORD 2706
SyncInputPin DWORD 0
post #937 of 1297
combine the files using the copy command:
copy /b file1+file2+file3+...+fileN BigFile
See if that helps.

Any pointers appreciated.

Hi Dave:
Last week I recorded about 3 hours of PBS HD from KVIE, the Sacramento, California, PBS station. The file size was set at 2217 MB each because 2 of these files is just about the maximum that can fit in a so-called 4.7-GB DVD blank. Even before I transfered the files to DVD, whenever I started playback the first file, named KVIE_00.TP, my PC locked up "hard" and had to be restarted by pressing the reset button and rebooting. The other files, from KVIE_01 to the last one, played back without any problem at all! Thinking that the problem had something to do with the start of the file, I used HDTV2MPEG 1.10 to exclude a few of seconds from the very start of the file. These short time corresponded to the PBS advertizing that says that PBS

Somehow, my post was sent even before I completed it. Here is the rest:
"PBS WOULD NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU". So, after I saved the editted file, it played back without any problem at all. I used the MyHD application to record this program and to play it back.

I don't remember the link to the site where HDTV2MPEG is found. I suggest you do a search to find it. Or maybe others remember the link. Good luck to you.

Is there a program (other than DVHSTool) one can use to transfer HiPix .ts files from a computer to a JVC 40000 via firewire?
post #947 of 1297
I see that Rick's last post was on August 9. That is 2 months ago to the day.


I hope that everything is okay with Rick and his family.

I disapeared for several months due to a really bad car accident so I know how these things can go but it does makes me wonder/ hope that Rick is doing okay.

Any word?

Best wishes,
Joe
post #948 of 1297
Joe,

I was thinking the same thing. It's odd not having Rick around participating in this thread. I hope things are ok with him.

post #949 of 1297
Oh, That is a long time... I too hope he is ok. Joe sorry to here about your accident hope everything is going ok now.

OK- I just tested out my refurb 30k by using dvhstool to write a few old Superbowl trailers to DVHS.

While playing bacvk noticed that there was a blocky pixelation/transition between each trailer. I recorded them by que. Is this normal?
post #951 of 1297
Yes it is normal if they were from different captures.

Dumb question :)
I have the two JVC 30000 purchased after frimwire correction so I avoided the early problems. Also I have two AVIX-1 units .. love them 169.company is the best.

Question : Why try to record to hard drives when tape is only $8 .. I record to tape and keep it on tape. Am I missing something ??

Next as usual I am now going into recording / transfering to hard drives for the "fun of it".. I expect a real learning curve here.
Fortunately I can review everyone elses's problems and solutions.
Also I do build computers and that will not be any problem .
The problem is learning how to use DVHCStool ( thanks to the guy who spent the time to put it together.) and locating software and hardware cards to capture signal, not to mentiuon the "unk" ( unknowns") as well as the " UNK UNK" ( the unknowns I do not even know are unknown ).

The real pupose of this is why are people recordeing to to hard drives..
Perhaps editing or storage ???

Just interested in how and why others are doing this .

Thanks

seem many people are having problems and is not a easy solution such as AVIX-1 to tape and playing tape back like

I just noticed when I opened the HiPix app that D-VHS is now listed as one of the sources. (I recently added a JVC 30K.) Tape transport is enabled, but I don't have a clue as to how to select audio and video decoders so that I can watch a D-VHS tape. I did a search, but no luck on finding a how-to. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

I don't have a HiPix, but--assuming that it works like MyHD--playback and recording via the HDTV card's software have nothing to do with D-VHSTool. You simply select the tape drive as the input (or recording) device and then press "play" (or "record") in the HDTV card's control panel.

I guess simply because they don't want to move into a bigger place to store all the bulky tapes that deteriate in quality over time.
post #956 of 1297
TPeterson,

When I do that I get tape transport but no audio or video. The HiPix recognizes the video from the tape and notifies me of its size (I get OSD) but I don't get a picture. Nor do I get a picture through D-VHSTool's video preview function (saw you picked up on that attempt).

Any HiPix users out there who can tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I'm still alive and well. Thanks for the concern. My real job is getting in the way of my "play time" lately.

Joseph, it looks like your recording might have more than one set of PID's in it. Does your local station multicast? This could be confusing the Hipix, I nevel implemented support for multiple programs mostly because the Hipix didn't handle it all that well.

With DVHSTool preview; when a multicast signal is detected, you'll see < then > to switch channels at the end of the button bar. Do you see this?

Well, great to see you posting again, ricka! We missed you. I was a bit worried you had gone AWOL.

The hard disk crashed. Fortunately, the DVHSTool source code is on a different machine. I hope to bring the site back up sometime this week.
