    Default Problem with Playback of Captured TV File / Files all play back in NTSC

    Hi there,

    I just bought a Sony BDP-S370 and stumbled upon your fantastic software.

    At the moment I have the trial installed but I am looking to register my copy if I can sort out this small niggle.

    So far I have been able to stream all my divx/xvid files, mp3s and pictures without a problem.

    I have tested some TV files that I have recorded with my digital tuner, all in mpg format.

    I have no problems with recorded files from standard definition TV stations and 4 out of 5 HD stations are also ok.

    I see you guys are based in Australia so I can use the channel names and you'll know what I'm talking about

    SBSHD, ABCNews24, Gem and 7mate are all fine. OneHD has stuttering sound.

    I initially thought that perhaps the sound was being recorded at a higher rate than the other channels but I have just re-checked and Gem also records at the same rate (448 kbps) but has no stuttering. For the record ABCNews is 256kbps, 7mate is 384kbps and SBSHD is 192kbps.

    When I stream the files recorded on OneHD using windows media centre as the server they play fine but it looks like the files are downsampled to 192kbps (as are all the other channels' files). Plus the picture quality is a lot worse so I'd prefer to use Mezzmo.

    Any ideas? I've attached the FFmpeg info from the Gem file and also OneHD below.

    ffmpeg for the file recorded from GEM:

    Also, All my content is played back at 60hz. Is there a way to play my PAL stuff back at 50hz? I have set the profile in the Mezzmo server as "Sony BDP (PAL)". Maybe this is a limitation of the Sony BDP-S370.


    Hoping you can sort out this little niggle with my setup.

    Regards
    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    At a first glance, OneHD's video stream is set as 90000 kb/s which may be the culprit. Frankly, I'm not sure if sound should stutter or not, but it's possible that BDP's firmware cannot properly decode this stream and stuttering sound is just an artefact of that.

    What would be great, is if you could record a couple of minutes of OneHD and a couple of minutes of Gem and send those two files to us, so that we could use our in-house BDP-S370 to test them (we don't have a recording tuner here). I would them be able to hopefully work out a solution for you.

    So, if you could record a couple short clips to illustrate this and then either upload them somewhere (e.g. www.megaupload.com) and send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com we'll sort it out.
