ReplayTV tools are a collection of command line utilities to work with
MPEG-2 streams for the ReplayTV 5000/5500 series Personal Video
These tools will allow you to do the following:
- Edit downloaded shows without reencoding; stream them with DVArchive
- Convert RTV files for use with DVD Authoring
- Convert RTV4K MPEGs for streaming to a RTV5K
- Convert MPEG-2 streams and stream to a RTV5K with DVArchive
What's New in Rev 4:
- Revised Documentation
- RTVEDIT: if no associated ndx is found for the given mpg, create a 5k ndx
- EVTDUMP: added -p and -i switches to set program time and ignore time
- RTVCONV: added -d switch to write demultiplexed streams (.m2v, .mp2)
- RVTCONV: added filtering of RTVEDIT-ed files for DVD authoring
- EVTDUMP switches may be useful for changing detection parameters
without recompiling. Specify times in seconds. For example, a 30 minute
show may have program segments shorter than the default 5 minutes, use
-p180 to set the program time limit to 3 minutes.
- RTVEDIT will now re-build a .ndx corresponding to the original .mpg
if no .ndx is found. It will *assume* the mpg is a RTV5K stream. There
is no check for this and results on a non-RTV5K stream are
unpredictable (read "bad"). An .ndx is required for editing the stream,
so once the .ndx is re-generated, you can run RTVEDIT on the fileset as
- RTVCONVERT can now process an RTVEDIT-ed mpg and produce a stream
suitable for DVD authoring. Simply run RTVCONVERT on the output of an
RTVEDIT stream and use the resulting stream in your DVD authoring
program (tested on MediaChance DVDLab, Sonic Solutions DVDit,
Sonic/Daikin Scenarist, Ulead MovieFactory 1.x.).
- If your DVD authoring program accepts demultiplexed streams,
use the -d switch to have RTVCONVERT write .m2v and .mp2 files directly.
Binaries are included for Mac OS X, Win32 and Linux. Enjoy!
