    Found it... In TiVo Plus, go into File Menu, Preferences, Audio Boost Tab, and adjust the slider. I haven't tested it yet but will try some different boost levels to hear what works best with the PSP.

    Why is this not working for me? I can make an H.264 mp4 with these exact specifications in PSP Video 9 or MediaCoder and it will work, but the file that TDP spits out is consistently "unsupported data" (unless I am using the default settings). I've tried dialing back the bitrate to default, as well, but that does nothing.

    And yes, I'm certain my changes in XN are being saved. The files are being output at the correct resolution, etc, but the PSP just won't read them. Very frustrating...

    Do 640x480 files created using the method above actually sync to the iPod Touch via iTunes? Didn't work for me with my 5G iPod--I created some 640x480 files but iTunes won't sync them (even though they play fine in iTunes). I read somewhere that iTunes won't sync user created 640x480 files...

    This is a great thread. I haven't tweaked the .dll yet, but I'm confident it will meet my needs.

    I am moving some of my kids' (non-HD) animated shows from my TiVoHD to my PC to save on space. I am also converting the shows to an iPod format for when we travel.

    Here's my dilemma:
    I want the kids to have the option to move the show back to the TiVo for bigger screen watching, but I don't want to have to keep 2 file versions (.tivo and .mp4) of the same show on my PC.

    Solution:
    Convert the original .tivo file to an .mp4 file that will be high-quality enough to still look good on my 40" HDTV.

    Question:
    What specs should I use when I do the .dll tweak to get this high-quality .mp4 file that is both iPod- and TiVo-friendly?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is there an update to these instructions for 2.7?

    I don't see a tivotrans.dll on a new install of the desktop plus on a new computer.

    Thanks,
    David

    Update: Looks like it's in TranscoderHost.exe now?

    ok, I'll test it and report back.

    Update 2:

    ok, that in itself wasn't enough. It also appears in TranscodingService.exe. reboot, modify, reboot and try the conversion again. (Funny, it's under Russian in the service, which is not an actual service in windows.).

    Both are running, but it's the host one that's using most of the cpu.

    I gave up on 2.7. I can't get it to work on my 64-bit vista notebook. TranscodingService.exe just runs and runs and runs, and never seems to finish. I did get it to convert a file for H.264 in 320x240 before I edited the two .exes, and that was fine, but it also took forever. (as in hours and hours).

    I found 2.6.2 and I'm trying that now. 2.6.2 has tivotrans.dll, and it actually seems to be doing something unlike the modified 2.7.

    Update: No problems with modifying tivotrans.dll and 2.6.2. All is good again.

    2.7 is working fine for me. I was able to just edit the TranscoderHost.exe file using XN Resource Editor just like I had done with the tivotrans.dll file with the older TiVo Desktop software. My 2 minute 1080i test file converts to a H.264 compatible device 480x272 mp4 file for my PSP perfectly. Thanks David for finding this. Sorry it didn't work for you. Now hopefully they fixed the memory leak in TiVoServer.exe...

    Yeah, that's cool. I got frustrated with 2.7 and just gave up.

    Hi I did:
    <tivotrans:profile name="H.264 compatible device" version="1" audioresamplerate="0" audiobitrateK="128" hrez="640" vrez="360" vbitrateK="1024"
    vmaxbitrateK="1280" suffix="" filetype=".mp4" framerate="29.97"
    >

    On 2.6.2 on tivotrans.dll and TranscoderHost.exe on 2.7 file using XN Resource Editor, my issue is I now get jittery video (every 10 seconds ish and not timed) and the sound drifts as the show goes on. It is usually messed up after 15 minutes.

    I do not remember the problem before 2.7, so I rolled back to 2.6.2 and still have the issues.

    Any ideas?

    Updated:

    I went back to 2.7. I fiddled with audioresamplerate="0" as 1, 24, etc. The higher the worst. I think I am moving it all to a Mac.

    Similar question to some others --

    Will selecting H.264 automatically add the video to iTunes AND save the file metadata? This is the case when I select iPod...

    To that, why can't we edit the iPod profile? Why is that not available as the others are?

    Can someone provide a recent link to download Direct Show Dump? The original link doesn't seem to work any longer.
