View Full Version : HELP: Can't demux a Digital-TV recording....

14th August 2006, 10:53
I recorded a film of Digital-TV using my Hauppage Digi-TV card. Due to bad reception, there were many transmission errors. When I try to demux in

Project X I get these errors:

Have you tried de-muxing the streams using DGIndex?

Have you tried de-muxing the streams using DGIndex?

Can you give me a quick guide/tour of DGIndex please..

14th August 2006, 13:00
Step 01: Make sure you have the latest version of DGIndex (http://neuron2.net/dgmpgdec/dgmpgdec.html) (which is 1.4.8): -


Step 02: Launch DGIndex and "drag-and-drop" your captured stream into the window: -


....and press OK

Step 03: If any warning notices appear just press OK. And with any luck your capture should appear in the window... Something like this: -


Step 04: Click on "File" and select "Save Project and Demux Video". And select where you want to save your streams: -


Step 05: If the de-muxing works you should have "at least" three streams: -


That should get you started....

What movie is that?
It's an broadcast 720x576 "progressive" (50 frames-per-second) MPEG-2 test sample from Australia :)

I wanna see more digital :D :D :D

Someone somewhere must be aiming the satellite dish somewhere...:D

She's got "nice hands"... as my grandfather would say ;)

I'm completely distracted now. What was this thread about? :)

Gents, please keep rule 3 in mind. Thank you.
