I've been reading many threads that either mention or hint at others having this problem. .tivo file plays fine on my computer, I burn it to DVD and it plays on a set top player very 'jerky'. Almost a strobe like effect, mainly in sections with a lot of motion. I've tried Nero and DVDWorkshop and had the same results. After a fair amount of trial and error, I've come to the conclusion that there is something odd (maybe intentionally) about the .tivo mpeg. I've read in various posts about improper interleaving to bad DVD blanks to incompatibility of the set top player. My last test was to use a DVD-RW and create a DVD with 2 chapters. 1 was a 10 minute clip out of a .tivo that I pulled, the other was a 10 minute DV cap from my camcorder. Both were transcoded with the DVD workshop authoring program. That way both clips have everything in common except the source of the footage. The clip from the DV source plays flawlessly, the clip from the .tivo is jerky/strobbing. Since everything is exactly the same from the media it was burned to, what transcribed the video, the set top it was played on, even the session that was burned the only conclusion I can come to is that TiVo does something to the mpeg other than including DRM. Anyone offer any other suggestions?
