Missing audio on video file transferred from TiVo


New member
I recorded a TV program on my TiVo Premier XL. Playback on the TiVo to my TV is perfect. I transferred the program to my PC using kmttg (as I do with hundreds of programs), then I opened the file with VideoReDo TVSuite v5, and there is no audio. When I look where I would normally see the visual representation of an audio signal, there is nothing (no squiggly yellow or blue line).

Obviously, the program has audio, because I can watch it with audio directly from the TiVo. Has anyone encountered this problem? Any suggestions for how I can correct/restore the audio (by re-transferring the file, or fixing it on my PC)? Here's the program info:

I noticed that the "Field order" is "Bottom field first." Isn't this unusual? Could this be the cause of the problem? How do I correct it?

Are other files you transferred OK and this file is the only one?

Have you tried playing the file with WMP on your computer to see if you hear audio?

Make sure you didn't mute or lower the volume in VRD.
