    With this program an you convert an unencrypted DVD file (having the IFO and VOB files) on your computer just using the IFO file to xfer the movie and title to your TiVo keeping the 5.1 sound ?

    The biggest issue with DVDs is that some use forced subtitles to display dialog when someone is speaking another language. TiVo does not support DVD subtitles, so you need a program that can recode the video and burn the forced subtitles into the video. VideoReDo does not currently have that option.

    If you're DVD does not have forced subtitles then it should work fine. Just open the DVD, either by using the Open Title from DVD option or just opening the VOB(s) directly, and then save as an MPEG-2 Program Stream.

    I currently have VideoReDo TVSuite V4 w/H.264 - VRDTVSH264-4-21-10-681
    Originally purchased on 09/09/12, updated to the latest version on 09/08/14

    Is there any real advantage for me to upgrade/purchase Vers 5? Running Windows 7 if that matters.
    Do I qualify for the $25.99 upgrade?

    It is not a product I use often, but I am very glad I have it.

    You do qualify for the upgrade pricing.

    There are some changes in v5 which might be useful to you. The big ones are...

    1) A new H.264 cutting engine that eliminates the errors/pixelation you could get when cutting H.264 in v4.

    2) The ability to open many more formats

    3) Intel QuickSync encoder support

    4) Ability to edit 4K

    5) Ability to rotate and flip video

    6) Ability to change video frame rate

    7) Ability to rearrange audio streams and add/remove/duplicate individual streams

    8) New batch manager that is much easier to use

    9) Skinable UI

    It works under Win10 just fine. My boss uses a Win10 on his main development machine.

    Good to know. Maybe you could get the system requirements page updated to reflect that.

    Is it on sale because v6 is coming?

    No. Actually we're testing demand for a lower price point. If it succeeds then we may release a Plus v5 for around the same amount, but it will have less functionality then TVSuite so this is the better deal.

    We haven't even started discussing v6 yet so it's probably a year or more off.

    So no subtitles option using this program with DVDs, bummer, as I use subtitles all the time even for English. DVD Fab does have the capability to do this job, but it is a pain to use, but the subtitles can come with the DVD file that goes to the TiVo, I was just looking for an easer way of doing DVD xfers to TiVo with 5.1 sound and subtitles. Oh well :(

    I can take an Iso, separate it to its separate files with 7unzip, then merge the relevant files into 1 mpg file and sent it to the tivo all in less than 12 minutes, no paid software needed.

    How do you get the TiVo to display the subtitles? DVD subtitles are a special format. They're image based, not text, and they're specific to DVDs. The only way I know of to get them to play on non-DVD players is to recode the video and burn the subtitles right into the video.

    My guess: You would drop the DVD production feature(?). When TVS4 came out I was very interested in DVD creation. Now I rarely use it.

    How do you get the ISO from a computer file of a IFO and VODs files (from a ripped DVD), and what if anything can you do to get the subtitles ?

    Not sure exactly what we'd drop yet. DVD for sure, also all transcoding features (smart edit only) maybe a few other things. We haven't settled on an exact feature set yet. There will also likely be future enhancements that will be TVSuite only.

    It worked. You got me for that price. Not that I needed all those features, but the price was enough to sway me.

    Yeah you still need TiVo Desktop to open .tivo files.

    I've tried repeatedly to get in touch with someone at TiVo to see if we could get permission to integrate it all directly into VideoReDo but they never respond. :( And for a commercial product like ours using the open source tivodecode or tivolibre is technically against the law so we can't do that.
