Posted: Fri Mar 07, 2008 10:14 pm Post subject: DD5.1
I have quite a few movies that have are in MPG2 format with DD5.1 encoding.
When I transfer these movies via "TIVO DESKTOP 2.51" the movies play just fine on my TiVo S3 & TiVo HD includiing the DD5.1 surround. (I have auto surround on my receiver & detects the DD5.1 and turns on the other speakers).
When using pyTiVo if I transfer the SAME movie file to my TiVo. the DD5.1 gets removed.
I am using Windows XP SP2, 2gb Ram
PyTivo was downloaded from http://pytivo.armooo.net/
I have 2 (Two) Tivo's. A Tivo S3 & TiVo HD.
They are both using 9.2 software.
The current releases of pyTivo retain ac3 audio by default. Without more information about the exact version you are using and seeing your pytivo.conf file, it's hard to say what the problem might be. Even using a really old pytivo.conf file with a new version of pytivo might cause problems.
I would recommend deleting your entire pytivo folder, including your pytivo.conf file, and reinstall pytivo from scratch. I would recommend using all default settings in your pytivo.conf to start with rather than specifying any user defined settings. pyTivo has been modified quite a bit to try to produce the best results using the default settings. If you are using Windows, you might want to try krkeegans Windows installer version.
Hmm, can't see anything in your config that would indicate the problem. Try creating a debug.txt file.
Add "debug=true" to the server section of your pytivo.conf file.
begin downloading the movie.
Then take a look at debug.txt in your pytivo application folder. Could you post the lines that say "Codec=" and "ffmpeg command is". Or even better, you can post the entire file after removing the last 4 digits of your tsn is you like. _________________ Download pyTivo my pyTivo branch
