I wasn't aware that different cards recorded different .mpg files! I know it doesn't work with the .ts file.
Another program which will allow you to very easily edit the .mpg file from the dvico fusion HDTV card is Ulead Movie Factory 3, but I found Nero version 6 much easier to use.
The problem with working with the .mpg files created by the fusion HDTV card is the audio and video getting out of sync. You can also NOT rely on the FusionConverter program to fix this issue (even though i have contacted DVICO and requested that they put this functionality into their software which in my opinion is a bug).
The only way i have found to fix the audio/video sync issue is to capture the transport stream and use ProjectX to convert to seperate streams. This also seems like a good point at which to mention that the videoRedo program that someone suggested "can avoid some of the steps" cannot work with the transport stream (.tp) captured by the fusion card.
All of this i have discovered in my research over the last 2 weeks with the intention of transferring digital TV to DVD.
After using ProjectX to fix the audio/sync issue, i use mpeg2shnitt to remove the ads, then i use Sony DVD Architect to create the DVD. This software i found to be the essential component which finally solved most of my woes. Namely, it can:
- import the seperate streams (no need to remux then import),
- work with and even encode to ac3,
- import HD resolutions and re-encode them to DVD resolutions (i found that MPEG Video Wizard does a lousy job of the re-encode process and i would recommend against its use for such),
- report when re-encoding is not necessary (if the stream is SD),
- allow you to re-encode to fit onto one DVD (although i just let it create an oversized DVD then use DVD2One to shrink it down. this way it doesnt have to re-encode but just transcode (unfortunately this is 1 thing that Architect doesnt seem to be able to do))
The only other thing i found i required for perfect HD and SD conversions to DVD is the IFOEDIT pan & scan fix for 4:3 in 16:9 transmissions as mentioned somewhere else in this forum.
May all benefit from this information as i have benefited from various forums over the years.
