I have a PVR-250 which I use to create MPEG-2 streams on my PVR running mythtv.

When I try to load one of these files in DGIndex, it just crashes (file name for example is: 09152200_Rescue_Me_Alarm). If I rename the file to "09152200_Rescue_Me_Alarm.mpg" it loads and processes just fine, but I cannot play the resulting d2v file or if I make an AVISynth script with it using the MPEG2Source command, that too will not play; mplayerc gives an error "cannot render video stream." And Virtualdubmod cannot read either.

I am able to use the versions of DVD2AVI to load these MPEG-2 files and then generate a d2v and mpa files... but I get errors in the audio (incomplete streams) and I cannot convert them to wav.

Ideas are welcomed!

Thanks!

Is there anyway you could cut a few megabytes from the start of the file and upload them anywhere for us to take a look at what the problem might be?

Sure thing... can you recommend a utility that will allow me to cut an MPEG-2 file without changing it like VDubMod will do?

Look at the full software list at doom9, look for a program called cuttermaran. I've never used it, but it and programs like it can be found everywhere (we don't even need it frame accurate, just a few meg at the start will be enough)

OK.. I wonder if I just start an FTP upload and abort it... that should be just as good

Thanks for this tool, it's a lot better than some of the older stuff.

I downloaded the clip and created an OK d2v file with no problem. VirtualDub and AviSynth open the d2v and play it normally.

DGIndex does crash if you rename the file without an extension. Thats interesting.
