    You were using Windows 7. That's still beta software. You might have done something wrong. There could have been an issue with whatever beta build you were using. Some people jump at the chance to try a new operating system. The rest of us wait until we're sure it works with whatever applications we use.

    You acknowledge using QSF solves the problem, as long as you enable filters.

    Sorry but your first "issue" was an issue with a beta version of Windows. Your second issue is with a "poor interface", having to do the extra step of running QSF.

    Do a search Tivo Desktop Plus currently chokes on these files.

    :rolleyes: So, I guess you're also upset with Microsoft;

    and Apple;

    and TiVo, for that matter.

    I don't own, and have NEVER DOWNLOADED OR USED VideoReDo, and it's patently obvious to see you are never going to be satisfied with this software. So, why don't you chalk it up to a 'lesson learned' that things don't always go the way you expect them to and go out and find a different method to change your tivo files to mpeg. Then you'd be able to contribute positively to the thread instead of just continually beating your drum.

    If you run the video through VRD -> QSF and check 'enable filters', this should resolve it so that VRD can process the video. I would strongly suggest staying away from all other products if you're going to use VRD, because that's what ended up causing my own problems. By itself, VRD is fine (aside from the dimensions changed garbage), but it doesn't play well with others.[/QUOTE]

    I have done that and also indicated to break it into 138 segments (recommended by VRD) and I get this message: "I/O read error: invalid file format from external reader in FileBitInputStream" and then the QSF quits.

    Other suggestions? I love my TIVO and I think VRD is a great program, but I've had this problem ever since the final part of Comcast's change to digital transmission, which happened on September 22nd.

    As mentioned in this thread, Womble Mpeg Video Wizard doesn't have any trouble with changing video dimensions, so that's a program you can try (there is a free trial period for that program).
    So far QSFIX with filter enabled has fixed it for me in VRD.

    I don't think VideoRedo Supports 1080i DD5.1 conversion does it?
