Video Capture Made with Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket Closes VideoReDo at 38% Into Saving Video After Making Edits and Other Problems

Jim Elliott

I'm having problems with video captured with the Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket. See the attached file for what the video looks like in certain spots. I am using the device in stand-alone mode. I even reduced the bitrate from the maximum of 18 mb/s down to 14, and these problems still persist. Audio is HORRIBLY out-of-sync with the video, and after editing in VideoReDo and saving the video, it gets to 38% and then VideoReDo just closes. This is the second external Hauppauge device I've tried (the first was the HD PVR Pro 60), and it doesn't seem that I am having much luck. I will likely end up going back to my internal Colossus 2. Any ideas, folks, as to the cause of these problems? Thank you.




Your broadcast is likely full of stream errors. Try running Quickstream Fix first; if that doesn't fix it, probably nothing can. Been there before.


You should post more info on what you are doing to get the best suggestions.

Can you play the original recorded video ok on something like VLC or MPC-BE?

What you have said seems to indicate the recoded audio is ok (other than syncing to the video), but recoding video is the problem.
Maybe post a MediaInfo dump of the original Rocket file

What is your video source - OTA, cable HDMI, gamebox, camera?
What is your source resolution - 1080i, 1080p, 2K, 4K, something other.

Is your Rocket recording to SD card? - is the SD card rated fast enough for your resolution?

Have you tried recording Rocket to PC or laptop?
If PC, USB 2.0, 3.0, 3.1? - are you using both Rocket USB plugs for full power?
What are the Hauppauge Capture settings - Are you scaling? What Profile setting? What Level? bframes?
Is your Hauppauge output set for VBR or CBR?

What CPU are you using to recode - is it powerful enough for what you are asking in the way of recoding?

Giving more info like above will get more informed help

@ Jim Elliott

Haha, so you are a real member of this forum afterall, after the crazy threats that you have been making towards me recently, i was starting to think that you was actually a ghost spamming this wonderful forum.
Crazy threats? Go crawl back under your rock. I've been here much longer than you have.

It's "you're."

Your prolific posting prowess truly awes me, and I thought a gentle reminder to "watch your mouth" might be in order, lest the winds of forum etiquette carry your words away to places unknown.

But alas, I see my attempt at digital shepherding has gone awry, and for that, I apologize. I hold no ill will or envy toward your remarkable contributions to this forum. In fact, I applaud your dedication to the noble art of forum posting. It takes a true digital virtuoso to amass such a collection of posts.

So, please, do carry on with your endeavors in this forum, and may your posts shine as beacons of wisdom and knowledge for all to see. And remember, sometimes, it's a good idea to step outside and touch a bit of that elusive grass.

My apologies for adding to your bewilderment, dear forum aficionado. It appears my attempt at digital shepherding has veered off into the thorny brambles of confusion.

But fear not, for let's not lose sight of the grand accomplishments we hold dear. While some may take pride in their post counts, true achievements lie in the realm of decency and kindness. Indeed, refraining from profanity and being a virtuous soul in the physical world are the noblest feats of all.

So, carry on, my prolific poster, and may your posts continue to garner attention from those who find solace in the numbers. As for me, I shall retreat to the digital shadows, content in knowing that the real triumphs lie in our hearts and actions beyond the digital realm.

OMFG ?????????????????????????????????????????
A symphony of question marks, an exquisite display of digital artistry! I must say, your use of punctuation is nothing short of awe-inspiring. The sheer number of question marks has left me pondering the mysteries of the universe, such as: Is there a world record for the most question marks in a single message? 🤔

But truly, in this digital age, we're all free to express ourselves however we please. So, let your question marks fly, my enigmatic friend, and may they find their place among the stars of online communication.

Jim Elliott

Unlike you, I've chosen to bring this exchange to a dignified close with this, my last reply. Farewell, my digital companion, and may you continue your online journey with grace and poise, leaving behind the cacophony of question marks and "bewildering" acronyms. What does the "F" stand for? But, no, you don't need to be told to watch your mouth, do you? No, not at all.

Jim, FWIW, is your original question still open? If so, the following thread of mine might be relevant:

BTW, I seem to have been having more success with QSF lately, since I started invoking it via Tools→QuickStreamFix rather than via the editor’s FixStream button.
Otherwise I use BatchManager to Save As (without QSF) aTS file as Dan203 (my hero) hinted a while back, and this works for me every time.

As for the loss of lip sync, for me the first culprit is broken stream frames traceable to RF interference from thunderstorms or fridge doors etc., fixable as above. In addition my “Smart?” Samsung TV is slow to decode the compressed HD video stream. I find that in the context of my own gear it helps to set my Outputprofile’s’ AudioSyncAdjustment to something like -50mS.

You are welcome.
A further tip: In Tools->Options->StreamParameters, I use the following settings for Resync and for Buffer sizes:
Good luck!

Detect/resync missing frames:​
'Resync – Remove Audio Frames'
Maximum audio frame errors:​
Buffer sizes:​
Min frames:​
Max frames:​
