Advertisements I originally posted this in the Series 3 TTG FAQ, but with all the Stickies there, it is pretty easy to miss it. I searched this forum, but if I missed it, I apologize. I purchased the MPEG-2 component from Apple and installed MPEG Streamclip and Tivo Decode Manager in an attempt to cut out commercials from my Series 3 recordings. I am having issues opening the downloaded MPEG files in either Quicktime or Streamclip. Two of the files (SD, from analog) play the audio only in both programs. The video remains frozen on the initial frame. Another file (SD, digital recording) will not play at all in Quicktime, but the audio will play in Streamclip. The last file (HD) seems to play without issue and I am able to cut out the commercials. I previously purchased Toast 8 and all files play in the Toast Video Player without issue. It seems to be a MPEG-2 Component issue, but I have reinstalled it to no effect. I saw on some of the Apple Forums that there have been Quicktime 7.3 issues, but did not see anything similar to my problem there, either. I have not attempted to burn any of them yet, as I would prefer to edit out the commercials. I am running 10.4.11 with Quicktime Pro 7.3 on a 1.33GHz upgraded G4. The connection to the Tivo is wired ethernet and I have reset permissions.
