I posted the PyTivo results on the S3 thread about MRV/TTG The short version of the story is Yay! The slightly longer version is that PyTIvo/FFMPEG did remarkably well on the Hidef test files. I verified I was getting 720p because I told the S3 to display Native, and in that mode, my televion tells me when it is switching to other resolutions, and what those resolutions are. Bad news is that I had to go all the way down to 6Mi in order to get uniform results, even on the acid test high motion HD test files. Is this average or minimum VBR bitrate? I am baffled how the picture could be as nice as it was if that was the max or absolute bitrate. Other bad news is that I was able to force the S3 to stop playing sound for any show- had to reboot. So the TTG stuff they have is tantilizingly close, but still not ready for prime time.
