Ahhh. I will try it out. I get it now -- this was all done for older Tivos. So I will likely come to find out I did not need that resolution optimization mod after all since I have an S3. Thanks.

Any Video I have that is 16:9ish won't transfer to my tivo with video, only audio.

The only files I can watch are the 3:4 ones, which are taking all the 4:3 space and becoming 16:9. I guess the term is not pillarizied. Your config file doesn't look wrong, other than a lowish width setting (I use 720, but I have an upgraded drive so I never worry about space.

Also, any comments on my config file?

It is not Tivo.NET nor pyTivo, it is what is broken with our Tivos since 9.1.

Can anyone confirm this (no video, only audio for 16x9) is still a problem? I personally have not tried in awhile.

My 240 didn't have the probelm, only my 540.
540/590 models and models similar to them (some dvd tivos, and possibly other models) are broken for 16:9 playback by a recent TiVo service update. No workaround is yet known, other than letterboxing widescreen content to 4:3 aspect.

I only had a problem with audio sync when ffmpeg converted FROM 23.98 to 29.97, never if I left the frame rate of the file alone as received (unless the file was out of sync to begin with).

The whole resolution conversion and AR sequence was very important for S2 tivos. Does not seem necessary for most of what I have encountered on the THD.

I noticed that armoo's latest build now skips reencode for all mpg2 files on S3 tivos. Have not installed it yet.
This should be good news for S3/TiVoHD users. Only having to do transcode operation, and removing the scaling operation should definitely net a performance boost.

I'll give armoo's latest drop a spin tonight, if I get a chance.

I grabbed the latest version of the the code and I see that the optres was folded in. That is good. I also see that the code checks the TSN and can tell if you have a S3 or not. So since the code knows if it is an S3, perhaps it should not resize the pixels during transcoding?

New to pyTivo..weird problem?

I managed to slog through the setup and it seems to be working great, all praise pyTivo! Beats the heck out of converting to iPod and plugging into TV!
But, since I got it working, I can't seem to delete/modify some folders/files in the directory where my videos to convert are located.
I can create new things in that directory but if I try to edit/delete it says the file is in use by another program. I've tried stopping pyTivo and even rebooting but something is still locking the files.
Any ideas?
Don't know if it helps but i"m running XP with the newest pyTivo ans a Series 2 box.

I already saw his reply before I typed my own. the 16:9 issue is besides the point as stated in my post. My Videos that I have on my computer that are 16:9 won't transcode to be 4:3 aspect ratio. I have turned off the aspect ratio value. I have had it true. I've had it false. I've had it Commented out.

My 16:9 video still doesn't come thru still. Its My assumption that this is not yet another issue of the tivo, since TDN seems to be able to transcode 16:9 into 4:3 by letterboxing it, albeit at a much slower rate then pytivo could probally do the same task.

On another note, PyTivo seems to encode the 4:3 videos that do work MUCH more quickly at the same bitrate as TDN did.

Thanks for more helpful replies!

Same here. Only changes are pytivo.conf and transcode.py, renamed with ".txt" extension to allow them to be attached here. Also attached log.txt.

First, start with a fresh install of pyTiVo in a clean directory.

Use version 208, if we can coach a picture out of it on your TiVo, we can then work up to a newer version.

Use your posted config file, only set aspect169=false.

Make sure you kill off any old copies of python running in your task manager, or even restart the whole pc to be absolutely sure you're running the correct copy. This has tripped me up before.

If you are still getting the same undesirable results, turn on debugging. Transfer a 4:3 video, then a 16:9. Then post the debugging output here. Sample videos could also possibly help troubleshoot things.

I tried the Dec 4th build and I could not get it to show the video files listing on the Tivo. I had to go back to my old one.

Also, I am getting creeping audio sync problems when watching Heros S02E10 MKV files. I tried a transfer with and without -r 29.97 and both were out of sync. I am not sure if ffmpeg has trouble with MKV?

Yes... Do a search on MKV in this thread for the last few days. I've had good luck using files encoded by AutoMKV and its "2-pass, balanced" MKV/H264 profile but you have to use an ffmpeg much newer than the one distributed with pyTivo. However encodings done with the "1-pass fastest" profile don't play correctly via pyTivo. These same recordings play fine with VLC player on a pc so the problem IS ffmpeg.

This 2-pass encoding is slow, taking about 3.5X the video length, but the results are impressive. You can get quality comparable to a fast Xvid/AVI encoding but using half the video bit rate (which means half the file size).

What is a Heros S02E10 MKV file? Are you doing the encoding? Is it H264?

Ok. I restarted the computer. Unzipped 208 again and only thing I did was put in this config file.

Still the same results. According to debug file it says aspect 169 is true, but clearly it is false in the config file.

I don't see how to attach the debug file, so I'll just put in code brackets.

One other odd thing, Sometimes I would go into a show and it would show stop transfering instead of transfer this recording. would have to back out then go back in to get proper option.

One other odd thing, Sometimes I would go into a show and it would show stop transfering instead of transfer this recording. would have to back out then go back in to get proper option.
I get that also. If I have a few episodes of Atlantis on my PC, and go into eposide1, start a transfer, exit out. Then go to queue up a transfer of episode2, it asks me if I want to stop the transfer (as if it thinks it is the same show as the last one I was transferring).

@Mandabar,
Looking at the 208 code, you will get aspect169=true unless:
1. You have a model 649 or 540
(or)
2. You configure a per-tivo section and put aspect169=false in it.
Did you say you have a model 590 (Humax?) ?

Also, 1024kbps is a low bit rate, although it won't keep pyTivo from working. Your videos probably will be poor quality even on a mediocre TV.

I was all excited about pyTivo handling MKVs when Tivo Desktop Plus could not, and now I learn I cannot use it because ffmpeg does not audio sync on those MKVs.

http://forum.videohelp.com/topic318436.html

This guy says he has audio sync problems on the PC and Mac version of ffmpeg, but not linux.

With all the hundreds of options in ffmpeg, I'm pretty sure that ffmpeg does not have this capability at this time. On the other hand, there are other packages like Mencoder that have this capability but you would probably want to do your adjustments outside of pytivo.

Ok I'll try a per tivo section and see if that works. I assume I change nothing in my config file but add a per tivo section, that will basically override the settings I have in the first section of the config file for that ONE Tivo.

The kbps I'm using look just fine. Especially when its from these divx files to tivo. Though regular tv sometimes looks bad when its on basic. But usually not =)

Yes, I know I can do it with a secondary app, but was hoping to be able to integrate it into PyTivo's conversion.

I think your version of ffmpeg is a little too new. I started on this patch which should handle the output and video_info parsing changes.

Not really..... r8047 is the rather old version of ffmpeg that has been distributed with pyTivo for many months now. No version as new as 208 should have trouble parsing it. Current versions are r10051 and newer and there have been mods to transcode.py (after 208) to make it handle both the older and newer versions.

Is it possible to play DVDs through pyTivo? For example, I'd like to buy a 500gig harddrive and install it to my computer. Then, I could rip 100 of my DVDs (probably as .iso images?) to the PC and be able to access them from the tivo anytime I wanted.

pyTivo (i.e., ffmpeg) will not play .iso files AFAIK. However you could easily rip to .vob files and concatenate them to make the entire movie in one .vob, then pyTivo should transcode them OK. (Possibly you would need to rename the combined file as .mpg.)

Here is a helpful info page on combining VOB's, courtesy of VideoReDo. It gives you enough information to do it for free using a command window. I and many others would highly recommend you purchase VRD -- it will facilitate this process and that isn't even its main purpose. The DVDDecrypter program mentioned is old but free and generally very good still. OP can suggest other good free rippers.

YES!! I do this with pyTivo now. You will not get the menus but it will display the mpeg stream and play 5.1 audio.

what I do is extract the main movie mpeg stream with no re-encoding.

on a TiVoHD it will display the movie wit hthe correct aspect ratio.

I do all the ripping on my linux server in a 2 part process (ssomewhat automated , but since the 5.1 stream is not alaways the first one, i re-run the 2nd process manually.)

<code>

###
# 1 Rip DVD
###
## this rips the dvd to a .vob
mplayer dvd:// -dumpstream -dumpfile "${SOURCE_DIR}/${MOVIE}.vob"

###
# 2 Rip out only movie and 5.1 audio
###
ffmpeg -i "${SOURCE_DIR}/${MOVIE}.vob" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f vob "${BASE_DIR}/${MOVIE}.mpg"

</code>

what you end up with is a mpg file that pyTivo will send directly to the TIVO without re-encoding (i modified some of the pytivo code to allow the audio to be passed directly but i think the latest versions do this)


no I have a library of all my movies that i can watch without getting up off my ass , finding the dvd, putting it in...

this is awesome.

out of curiosity, what is the easiest way to determine the SeriesID of a show that is not on your list or is not listed at zap2it? i'd like to group all of my sports content under an appropriate seriesID and there are a couple shows in my guide like "Sports Room" on WPXN or "Sports Fan" on HSN, but I can't seem to track down Ids for them.

Thanks. The default string used by Winff worked so well on a problematic interlaced cable recording I was trying to encode that I decided to try replacing my pyTivo ffmpeg template with it. Hopefully it works just as well on other sources.

Code:
audio_br=384K
video_br=8Mi
width=720
height=480

ffmpeg_prams=-vcodec mpeg2video -r 29.97 -b %(video_br)s -maxrate %(max_video_br)s -bufsize %(buff_size)s %(aspect_ratio)s -mbd rd -flags +trell -mv0 -cgop -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -comment pyTivo.py -acodec ac3 -ab %(audio_br)s  -ar 48000 -f vob -

smilerz reported this "no info" problem first, and I have it too. It is ticket #52 on the Wiki, which I just updated ("replied to" that is).

Anyone have any new info or results on this? Are windows users stuck at d498... for now? Armooo took ownership of the ticket but he replied this version has no problems on linux and he has no windows box to test on. I just spent a few hours trying to track it down and got nowhere.
