Record and playback high definition TV signals
Authored by: rtucker on Apr 29, '04 10:14:16PM
You can grab it from the anonymous ftp site at:

You can type

in the terminal and it should download.

Alternatively you can try a modified version called AV/C Browser Enhanced that combines the two programs. It works great with my Moto 6200 through Comcast. Had it up and running 30 minutes after the install today. Yay me!

Now how to edit these huge .m2t files... Anyone know how to transcode to a format that plays in real time on my now "wimpy" 1 GHz 15" Powerbook? Recording works fine to the internal 60 hard drive. The only program I've found is DiVA, but it doesn't handle audio.

Record and playback high definition TV signals

VLC can transcode from TS to PS, which you can then use with something like Diva or alike to squash it down to something smaller. The raw .m2t files that come out of VDVHS do not play well with any of the codecs and compression apps I've tried. So make sure you do a TS to PS first. Incidentally, the only way you will get proper playback on an HD device like an STB or firewire enabled display you'll have to keep the files in their original mpeg2 TS format. Divx or other codecs will not play through them.

VLC Commands to Transcode?
Authored by: EatingPie on Apr 30, '04 06:33:07AM

I've had really rotten luck trying to transcode the TS to PS via VLC. :)

Can you give a run-thru on what settings you use to accomplish this?
