I have ripped many DVDs to single VOB/mpg and transferred them successfully to the TiVo HD using pyTivo. I have also successfully dealt specific issues for certain files like timecode breaks, etc. as mentioned in the VOB thread above.

I am having a new issue with episdoes from the DVD version of The Tudors season 1. The files play fine on the PC, but when transferred to the TiVo they all play back with choppy video. It's like it's dropping frames and can't keep up with the real-time video. This happens only with these files.

Here's what ffmpeg is reporting:
Code:

C:\Program Files\pyTivo\plugins\video>ffmpeg_mp2 -i "x:\myvideos\thetudors-s1e1.mpg"

Any ideas about what's different about these files?

THanks
