    Hello all

    :lease:

    We have transferred a bunch of .ts files from our Humax PVR on to our Windows 7 PC.

    Many are films which were shown on TV but which we don't see that often and would like to keep permanently.

    We now need to convert those.ts files into .VOB files and burn to DVD for playback on the home DVD Recorder, a (relatively new) Panasonic DMREX83.

    We bought WVCU for this purpose.

    It seems to work fine except for a few niggles.

    The .ts files all play back on the PC fine.




    However ........


    Issue 1. > After converting .ts files into .VOB on the PC they playback on the PC a little "jerky" (can't think of a better word to describe it) and that "jerkiness" is emphasised when playing back on the TV via our DVD Recorder.

    Issue 2. > We can't find the setting in WVCU to ensure the DVD-R recording plays back in full TV screen not "letter box" etc.

    (before anyone says it we have RTFM on both but no help)


    We have used the "contact us" page on Wondershare's own website but haven't got a response.

    Does anyone here have any practical tips on fixing these issues OR can you recommend a different program we can get to do what we want to achieve?


    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    First off you might want to consider stepping away from DVD's, USB storage is huge and incredibly cheap, there are also highly capable media players like the WDTV Live which should be able to play the .ts files as is without any conversion.

    Issue 1. sounds sort of like the converter you have de-interlaced the video and playback is messed up as a result, I'm no expert in this area so thats just my wild guess. To see if it was you would have to get your converter to disable de-interlacing on the conversion.

    Issue 2. That involves altering the aspect ratio of the video which is a very complicated affair, might be best to let the TV do this if it has setting to stretch video full screen.

    It sounds to me like you need something a bit more advanced than the simple wondermedia application, try VideoReDo TV Suite H.264 trial version and see if it meets your needs. Add in your video, select create DVD, then select change output options/video tab here you can disable de-interlacing and over ride the aspect ratio.

    Another worth looking at is ConvertXToDVD that might also help.

    Thanks for this.

    After some try outs and thinking (VideoReDo, Convertxtodvd, VSO and others) we are considering using a digital media player to hook up to our home TV by HDMI.


    We have some 3 hour films shown on TV which we recorded but it seems Convertxtodvd only has a max of 2 hours per DVD-R disk. Probably for best quality. We would need to get DVD-5 or greater. All this is becoming unduly complicated for a few films but thanks again for your suggestions.

    You can probably sacrifice quality to get the video onto a single 4.7GB disc, also the videoredo I forgot to point out it's not the aspect ratio (well if 4:3 content then it is) but if it's widescreen already you use the cropping feature to stretch that out though be aware your breaking the original aspect ratio so things will look weird.

    Thnaks. Noted next101.

    We have bought a digital media player for a few pounds.

    That says it will allow us to attach the HDD and see the stuff we have recorded in the format and style we have recorded it so hopefully that will be an easy answer.

    Fingers crossed!
