Record video from a Motorola DCT 6412 PVR

These instructions will work well, but a very simple way to proceed is to open AVCVideoCap, part of SDK 23. It will make the connection to the box automatically and, when a recording is requested, allows setting the duration of the program. There is no need to use AVCBrowser or DVHSCap at all.

MPEG Streamclip allows simple editing on a frame by frame basis, so that commercials can be removed, non-destructively, prior to conversion to another format. It works well for AppleTV, using the 'Export to MPEG...' command and choosing H264. For my setup, using a Pioneer HDTV, low resolution broadcast material works quite well at a resolution of 960 x 540. The default choice produces a result that will not fill the screen. The 'Quality' default setting is 50% and this looks reasonable unless there is a lot of motion in the material. Setting a 'multipass' scan improves this but adds to processing time significantly.
