Beta 542 has been posted.

We recommend that all users using TVSuite upgrade to this beta as it resolves: 1) Critical sync issues, 2) Allows larger GOPs for non-compliant videos, and 3) Handles 720p files being broadcast with very long GOPs.

A few new enhancements are in this build as well:

a) You can change the background color for letter / pillar boxes.
b) Will optionally remember the cropping rectangle.
c) BPRJ files can be saved to the source video folder (Tools>Options>General).
d) Frame capture can save to .jpg/.png/.tif in addition to .bmp.

Release 3-1-3-544 has been posted.

This is an FYI in case you receive an email or check for updated version message. Build 544 has been posted. Same as 543, but with a couple of corrected spelling errors in the burner. No need to upgrade if you're using 543.

You can find the release version here:

Build 545 has been posted.

Lots of fixes, so please read the release notes.

For those who have had problems burning with audio recorded 44,100 or 32,000 sampling rates, this build solves that issue.

The fast encoder has been fixed. It could cause a crash with 1080i material. You can re-enable it by going to shift+Tools>Options and setting #38 Use Fast Encoder to True.

Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions.

Build 546 has been posted.

Changes in the release notes, but here are some highlights:

1) Better support for reading files from Tivo HD/S3.

2) Chapter mark import. This is an automatic feature which will import chapter marks from previously saved chapter files. Enable it using Tools>Options>Chapters. There's a new option on that page: "Only if no other chapter marks". This prevents equal spaced intervals from being created when there are other chapter marks. If you are importing a previously edited file and there are already chapter marks, and make an additional cut, you don't want to add new equally spaced chapters otherwise you'll have double sets of chapters.

3) A rare but critical fix for synchronization when recoding video and there are more than one title. Sync problem would only occur on the 2nd and/or later titles.

4) The output status dialog (one with the moving graphic) layout has been slightly changed to show the current filename being processed.

OK we really think we've got the unsupported operation fixed in the DVD burner.

Other minor fixes.

Please note, this build will be our next official release.

Beta build 551 has been posted.

This build has some important fixes for DVD Burning. So if you're having any issues with burning please upgrade to it right away.

It also addresses the Yellow triangle appearing during the "audio packetizing ends" stage. The estimated remaining time may still count up some during that stage, but at least the triangle won't appear.

Changed the way that DVD menus are created to bypass a bug in VLC when you select "No menus" in TVSuite.


Staff member
Beta build 552 has been posted.

More fixes for DVD burning.

Closed captioning (CC) for DVR-MS HD files should be working as well as preservation of CC data through the recoding process. Please note that CC is for NTSC video only.


Staff member
Beta Build 553 has been posted

- There was a problem with DVD closed captioning (added in 552) which could cause crashing during authoring and should be fixed.

- When editing Tivo files, you could see pixelation while editing.


Staff member
Beta Build 554 has been posted.

- Sync fix for multi-title DVD authoring which started in Build 553.

- Fix for NTSC closed captioning issue when authoring which could resulting in authoring to crash. Started with Builds 552/553.

- Titling sync issue for 50 fps and 59.94 fps material.

Please see release notes for complete list.

Beta Build 555 has been posted.

- Should the file audio packet not found when opening some transport stream files.

- Will now open MPEG1 files recorded on a DVD without messing up the AC3 audio.


Staff member
Beta Build 556 has been posted.

- Includes support for localization (Translations). If you're interested in helpping out with translating any non-english version please let us know either by email to support @ or a private message to Pat (PHD). The process it pretty simple, and we have a great tool that leads you through the process.

- Other fixes, (Minor) listed in the release notes.


Staff member
Beta Build 557 has been posted.

- Some improvement in dual layer burning, but not yet 100%. Please give it a try if you've been having issues with it.

- We made some improvements in Topfield output. Would appreciate in knowing if we fixed the AC3 not working on Australian Topfields.


Staff member
Beta Build 558 has been posted. Please see the release notes for details.

- Dual Layer bunring: If you have been having problems with dual layer burning, please give this build a try as it has addressed a host of dual layer compatability issues.

- Vista MCE thumbnails: There is a new hidden option that seems to make dvr-ms files created by TVSuite show thumbnails in Vista MCE. To enable it, go to shift+Tools>Options and change, "#30 Tag DVR-MS stream types" from true to false. Any DVR-MS saved or QSF'd from this point on will show a thumbnail in Vista. We have tested bth HD and SD material on Vista and XP MCE and they seem to play just fine. However, NTSC material is not always working on XBox 360 MCE. Would appreciate confirmation of this from someone. This flag only changes some headers in the MCE file so if you want to revert to the old format (tag = true) you can do so at any time. Files saved in the new format can be recoonverted to the old format should a problem arise. I'll start a new thread about this for feedback.

- Two recent requests were added to this build. A new COM function to adjust sync (see COM reference in the help file) and the ability to preserve edits when switching audio streams.


Staff member
Beta Build 559 has been posted:

1) The "log scale" option on the thumbnail options page has been removed and replaced by a "db" option. There is a drop down to set the maximum scale size although I found it doesn't seem to expand the scale that much, so we may need to add additional levels to the drop down. Please let us know.

In DB display mode, the scale ranges from -96db ( complete silence) to 0 db at the top. This is a fixed scale range and doesn't rescale to the displayed data like the non-log scale does. Using the dropdown on the options screen, the 0 db can be changed to -6, -12, -24, to expand the detail. Most TV shows I looked at seem to have content in the -40 to -30 db range, but can peak to -12 or -6 db at the loudest levels.

In conjunction with this, the audio volume adjustment will now display the adjustment in db in addition to the old x factor display (i.e. 2x = 6db).

Please see change log above for all other fixes.

1) Subtitles are still in alpha. We've improved the display and processing of subtitles when there are multiple VBI or subpics in the same PID, but that work is not yet complete. So if you see multiple languages on the main view menu for the same PID, its a bit random which one will actually be displayed on screen yet. This will be addressed shortly. However, this is only a display issue and all languages should be preserved on output. Please keep reporting subtitle issue to us, your assistance has been most appreciated.

2) Single instance option now available on the shift+Tools>Options menu. However, this option also affects batch (COM) processing so that you can't launch a COM session if a main session is already active. The default behavior is to retain the multi-instance behavior so it shouldn't be an issue for most users.

Please see change log for other important fixes.
