    Way to burn AVCHD files to DVD with VRD?

    I capture HD video using a Hauppauge 1212 HDPVR and Arcsoft Total Media Extreme (TME). I record the files in AVCHD format and edit out the commercials in VRDtvsuitev4. Then I burn the AVCHD files to a DVD using TME. Is there a way to burn AVCHD files to a DVD within VRD? If so, is there a...

    Burn DVD with AVCHD files in VRD tvsuite?

    I capture video using an older Hauppauge 1212 HDPVR and Arcsoft Total Media Extreme (TME). I record the files in AVCHD format and edit out the commercials in VRD. I burn the AVCHD files to a DVD using TME. Is there a way to burn AVCHD files to a DVD within VRD? If so, is there a tutorial on...

    How to resynch audio, QSF did not resolve

    I have a mpeg clip that was obtained by capturing a streaming video from the web. The video plays fine in all video players but the audio is off slightly. When I load into VRD TVS4, the audio is more out of synch. QSF does not resolve the issue. Any thoughts on other procedures for...

    Correcting an Ad Detective error

    Hi, Long time infrequent user here. I use Ad detective on automatic scan and the review the cuts. In the past this worked marvelously well with only an occasional adjustment needed. However, I now have movie where AD was fooled. It thought the few nearby black frames were a commercial and...

    I just ordered a HD PVR and want to use it for sending a copy of a football game to my son. He would play the video on his PS3 and display it on his 42 inch LCD tv. The game is presently saved on a cable company dvr and would be recorded to my HDD with the HD PVR. Questions: Which file...

    Is this a concern?

    I downloaded the k-lite codecs and installed Media Player classic. During the install, a screen popped up indicating a direct show error (see attachment). I selected yes to delete and use the k-lite codecs. Was this okay (ie, will not cause any problems with VRDS4)? Seems to be working fine...

    computer specs for video processing

    I'm finally going to update my computer, wahoo! The old p4 could process files but took forever... I'm leaning towards a gaming computer and want to make sure I can quickly process occasional mpeg2 captures with VRD (edit out commercials, convert to mp4 and save or burn to dvd). I'm looking...

    Where do I find the log file?

    Haven't used VRD suite in quite a while. Tried to burn a dvd today and it stopped near the end. Error message told me to read the log file but I haven't read the log file in a long time. How do I find it? I searched throughout the VRD folder and searched all the menu items within Suite...

    Help burning HD recording to DVD

    Hello, I have a clear QAM recording of Apollo 13 that is 9.2 GB in size. I would like to split this mpeg-2 file in half and save as data files on two standard DVD disks. The file size is just slightly larger than what can fit onto two DVD's. Any suggestions on how to reduce size while still...

    Best source for DVD: Clear QAM or S-video from DVR?

    Hello, One of my all time favorite movies is on this weekend "Saving Private Ryan". Video will be captured with a Hauppauge HVR 1600. I can capture the HD version since it is being broadcast on a clear QAM channel. Alternatively, I can save the movie to my cable DVR and capture it with a...

    Black screen

    Woke up this morning to find my computer with a black screen of death. Apparently, a security update forced a computer restart which appears to have hung the computer. I was in the middle of recoding a file. This file comes up when I opened VRD TVSuite as a recovered file. No errors in the...

    Improving video quality with s-video capture

    Presently, I use a Hauppauge HVR 1600 to record clear QAM HD programming to my PC. I then use VRD-TVSuite to convert these HD recordings to DVD quality. I am very pleased with the results using TVSuite and congratulate the development team for their excellent work! :) I am contemplating...

    Recommendations for external HD?

    I desperately need additional HD space on my 4-yr old desktop computer (only 120 GB, 50 GB available). Obviously, there are many choices for internal drives (only PATA drives work with my MB). An external drive has several advantages. In particular, I could save recordings from Hauppauge...

    Shrinking a file...

    I record movies to my computer with a Hauppauge 1600 HVR and control recording with Wintv. All resulting files are mpeg2 and are in dvd format (720x480). On occasion, the file size is too large to burn to a single DVD. For example, I have two files from this weekend that are 5.3 GB and 5.9 GB...

    VRD crashes upon opening file

    Hello, I have a Hauppauge HVR 1600. Yesterday, I updated the drivers for this card to enable QAM tuning. Live HD programming plays well on three of four HD channels. The HVR can record the programming to the HD in mpeg format. I tried saving a 10 minute segment and replayed with PowerDVD...
