    This is a part of the readme for the program TSTOATSC:

    Usage
    Usage: TStoATSC [-c] <input file name> <output base name> <Video_PID> <Audio_PID>
    specify PIDs in hex
    -c: correct PCRs

    Example:

    TSoATSC g:\citytv.ts d:\Enterprise 1022 1023

    It states that PID's are to be specified in hex (see above highlighted comment).

    Errr....where i'm I supposed to get that info.... Can anyone explain what to do to get this pogram to work??

    I can tell you the PIDs for CityTV as they are on the ExpressVu satellite service. They are: video 1122, audio 1123 (both hex). There's only one source where the CityTv HD signal could be recorded from - Rogers digital cable in Eastern Canada, but I higly doubt that.
    What is this program converting the ts file to?

    According to the readme is does this:


    TStoATSC is an MPEG-2 transport stream to ATSC transport stream remultiplexer. It takes one program from the input stream and generates an output stream at the ATSC bit-rate of 19.3 Mbps. It works by looking at the PCRs. It intelligently handles discontinuities and bad PCRs. Output files follow the HiPix convention: 137 MB file segments (about 1 minute)

    I've been told that it will correct any errors in the .ts file so that a perfect copy can be recorded onto DVHS.

    Here's a link to the readme file for more info:

    Have a search for a program called DGMPGDec - you can open the .ts and then select the Streams menu and it will identify the PID's. tstoatsc can OFTEN clean up .ts files and improve recording to D-VHS but some just do not work.

    Right, I've managed to get the program working, but it seems to split a single ts files into loads of smaller files. Is this correct? Is there a way of recombining the files to one file? It's just easier to keep things tidy if it's all one file.
