New DVD Rip will not transfer to TiVo

Hi

I have a TiVo HD. It's connected via wired network to my Mac.

I have several older DVD rips (mpeg 2) that I share from the Mac onto the TiVo with no issues at all. I'm using TiVo Desktop on the Mac.

Everything has been working just great.

I got a new DVD that I wanted to make available. I ripped it, joined the vob files and the resulting MPEG2 file plays perfectly well in VLC on the Mac.

However, when I transfer the file to the TiVo, the blue light comes on for just a second, then it quits and the transfer fails.

This *only* happens with my new DVD rip. All my old ones work just fine. So it had to be something with my file.

I tried several different ripping settings, but nothing seems to work.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

If you have been using a PC like I have, I use DVD Decrypter to rip the DVD, VideoReDo TVSuite to use QuickStream Fix. I am not sure of the Mac equivalent.

You may have some like of Time code errors on that DVD.

I don't know what you're using for the rip and vob joining, but I've had 100% success with using anydvd to rip and dvdshrink to remove the extra language tracks and remove the 1GB layer breaks. On my system it takes about 20 minutes to rip an average movie and about 5 minutes to run through the shrink. (I never actually recompress anything.)

So on the Mac I'm using Ripit to decrypt and MPEG Streamclip to fix the streams.

I tried DVD decrypter and VideoReDo on a Windows machine, but VideoReDo seems useless. I give it an English language .vob file, process it for Quickstream fixes, and the resulting output is in either Spanish or French. Under audio options, it won't let me select english audio.

DVD Decrypter must be set to extract the right streams, the default is all streams indicated in options with a (*). Using file mode, under the stream processing tab, note the streams numbers you want with the 0x and list them in options, them those are always selected.

So I booted up a Windows box. I used DVD Decrypter. I tried to do as you said, but the options window is not exactly easy to figure out. Anyway, I tried to use just the raw .VOB output, renamed to .mpeg, and I got the same problem.

The blue light comes on for a second, then goes out. Transfer fails.

So I ran the VOB thru VideoReDo again, and this time I got Spanish language instead of French. But it doesn't matter. I'm going to see if I can get this version to transfer at least. If I can do that, then I will figure out the language stuff.

More to come. But I have to say, I think it's going to fail. Same problem on Windows and Mac so far.

I believe 0xE0 is the video stream, 0x80 is english track, 0x20 is english subtitles

The end result.



Or else I would have to set it each time when I change files/episodes. Using IFO mode (oops, not file mode which will extract the entire DVD), I never have to join .VOB files.
Next, I always run VideoReDo QuickStream Fix.

Anyone know of a DVD ripper that works on a headless lenny box? I would love to rip my DVD's directly to my video server.

Not trying to hijack this thread but I thought this went with the topic.

Oh, there are quite a few. Handbrake has a Linux port, as does VLC.
