Advertisements Symptom: Atomic Parsley never completes after KMTTG transcodes (MPG to MP4) some programs. It seems almost all of these were recorded over the air and from a station that has good signal sometimes and marginal sometimes. That transmitter is 80 miles away and is about 55 degrees off the antenna axis so I'm surprised I get it at all but I like the Star Trek stuff on H&I network. More: When this happens only a *-temp.mp4 file is produced and in many cases it is corrupted (badly pixelated, picture halts while sound continues) although the mpg file is more playable. In most cases I would consider the resulting mp4 file un-watchable. Theory: I think the *-temp,mp4 is too corrupted for Atomic Parsley to process so Parsley just hangs ... forever. Current procedure: When I see Atomic Parsley is stuck I quick-look at the *-temp.mp4 file. If it looks tolerable I delete -temp from the filename. Otherwise I delete the offending program from the TiVo and hope for a better recording later. These are all reruns anyway. Question: What does Atomic Parsley actually do? I looked briefly but only saw vague answers. If nothing else, it seems useful as a quality check on the mp4 file.
