    From my experience A/V sync issues only happen if you re-encode mpeg2 to something else. Most players/decoders can handle timestamp issues and other glitches. I don't have A/V sync issues playing mpeg2 files from TiVo. The problem usually comes in when you re-encode to something else.

    I got this error:

    Code:
    input video=eia-608: projectx only supports mpeg2 video
    Thoughts?

    Is the source video mpeg2? Post mediainfo information here on the source video you are attempting to run through projectX. As the message says, projectX can only handle mpeg2 videos.

    It's just the file off of the TiVo, nothing fancy. Here's the Media Info:

    I think perhaps you are running old version of kmttg since it's not identifying the video code properly which is an older bug that was fixed a while ago. Make sure you are running latest version. Also once running latest kmttg version make sure to update tools using Help->Update tools...

    I'm running v1p0i, I just ran Update Tools and restarted, but get the same error.

    I grabbed another file and tried that and it IS working, so I'm not sure what's broken with the file listed above.

    Here's the Media Info for the one that's working:

    Compression mode               : Lossy
    The obvious difference is Audio #1/#2 vs. Text #1/#2. Wonder what that's about?

    The second one I actually ran through VideoReDo's QS Fix, so maybe that's the difference. I'll have to download another raw MPEG from the TiVo that hasn't been QS'd already.

    Under kmttg config-Programs tab please check that "mediainfo cli" is filled out and pointing to <installDir>\mediainfo_cli\mediainfo.exe and also make sure the executable exists in that location.

    If it is then there must be a bug in kmttg video codec detection still... The problem right now is one of the captions streams is being picked up as the video codec which obviously is not right.

    It's there, and pointing to the correct location, and there's a file in the location. I'm attaching a screenshot for you, just in case I'm an idiot and am missing something :)

    I actually deleted the file with the intention of starting the process over and seeing if that fixed anything. I'll set it to run tonight and get back to you in the morning. Sorry about that.

    I have consistent trouble with shows recorded on The Disney Channel. I don't encode at all. No other channel has given me any sync issues. That I can recall anyway...

    Also, I should add that I transferred 3 other movies that were recorded on the same channel, and all 3 of those work with Project X and are currently processing the QS Fix now. I have no idea why that one in particular fails.

    ALbino, if you download this zip file and replace your current kmttg.jar with the one contained in the zip file I think it will solve your problem:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0SMFC97ymdEOF91cV9TYjFhckE/edit?usp=sharing
    I improved mediainfo output parsing to avoid improper video codec detection. The change will be part of next official release.

    After this I guess question remains if projectX QS Fix is actually helping or not compared to VRD?

    That did solve the problem with Project X, thanks for that. I realize it was a lot of nonsense for a very isolated problem :)

    You're right though, in that Project X didn't fix the sync issues anymore than VRD did. It was worth a shot though. I truly appreciate the help and the work you put into a program that I literally use every day.

    Well it led to me fix lazy parsing code so it was worth it. In fact given how the old code was I'm surprised there weren't more issues reported with it.

    Occassionally I will attempt a transfer from one of my Tivo's (Premier & Elite ) to another storage location on my network and the transfer will appear as complete but only a partial transfer takes place , i.e. I had a Chicago Fire episode which should have been approx. 6GB in size of which only 700k transferred. I deleted and retried but with exact same result, this has happened with other shows not chronically but when it does subsequent attempts yield identically partial result.. Is this a defect in the file residing on the TiVo or a fluke with the transfer ?..

    Thanks for any guidance..

    When I see this type of problem, there is typically a glitch in the recording whether it's pixelated or a complete signal drop out. If I play the recording just past the glitch, I can then transfer the remaining portion of the program to another Tivo and then download the remainder of the program from the second Tivo. This does require me to stitch together the partial transfer and the remaining portion before archiving it.
