Trouble with recording and playing back high definition TV recordings
Authored by: LawrenceW on Dec 10, '08 05:52:46PM

I am having a bit of an issue with recording shows from CBS-HD using VirtualDVHS.

So when it's recording, the Bitrate and Packets are running, but frames, frame rate, H-Res, V-Res stay at 0. But and a m2t file is created and growing in size, roughly 5GB for about 40 minutes. However, once I finish recording and try to open that m2t file in MPEG Streamclip, I get an error message "File open error: can't find video or audio tracks" and some error in VLC... basically the 5GB file will not open.

However, I can record other channels like DiscoveryHD and NBC, and everything runs while it's recording (bitrate, frame, packets... H-Res, V-Res, and Frame Rate are detected.)

Are CBS signals encrypted? I thought it's illegal. Anyone else having similar issues? It only happens for CBS shows.
