    Found the problem. It was WMP10, not anything related to the Hauppauge card.



    In Windows Media Player 10, go:
    View -> Enhancements
    I turned off the effect "SRS WOW Effects" and the clipping went away.

    Hope this helps others with the same problems.

    Problems Connecting Inputs and Outputs

    How do I do the registration in Step #1? Where do I do the registration?

    Each time I try to do Steps # 8 and 9, I receive the following message: "The filters cannot agree on a connection. Verify type compatibility of input pin and output pin. No combination of intermediate filters could be found to make the connection. (Return code:eek:x80040217)"

    What am I doing wrong?

    Is there any easy way to convert dvr-ms files to mpg files?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes, there is an easy way - just use DVRMSToolbox.

    It is easy to set up and takes about 5 minutes to process a 1-hour recording...... :)

    Also, you can use it to remove the ads - see here.

    I can't get DVR-MS Toolbox to work. I keep getting the following error message:

    InputFile=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Recorded TV\Collateral_MAX_30_01_2006_09_28_02.dvr-ms
    Processing actions, this may take some time!!
    Profile = dvrmstompg
    Output DVR-MS file as one MPEG stream
    Conversion Started: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Recorded TV\Collateral_MAX_30_01_2006_09_28_02.dvr-ms to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Recorded TV\Collateral.mpg
    0%
    Error in Do Work
    Duration = 00:00:00.4687500

    I'm guessing that my settings are incorrect or that I don't have file that is needed.

    ANY AND ALL HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED.

    THANKS.

    DVRMSToolbox can be used out of the box.
    You just need to have a dvr-ms file and be aware that you have enough space on your hdd for temp-file and output-file.
    You can change this using settings gui.
    Then you just have to select dvr-ms to mpeg conversion.

    BTW, why don't you use conversion within MediaPortal? It's as fast as dvrmstoolbox and can be used with a remote?

    Just go to TV->Recordings->compress and select mpeg compression.
    Or use the burner plugin that comes with MediaPortal.
    It can be used for mpeg conversion within MediaPortal, too.

    Hi Ralph,

    Thank you for your help.

    I will check to make sure that I have enough space left on my hard drive. Since I have been recording a lot of programs, I think I may have run out of space. Do you think that the reason it won't go past 0% is that there isn't enough space?

    I have a couple of additional questions. Do you think the encoder that I'm using with Windows Media Center might be incompatible with DVRMSToolbox or MediaPortal?

    Do think the recording setting with Windows Media Center is set too high (e.g., the file size output is too large for DVRMSToolbox or MediaPortal)?

    I have a couple of additional questions.

    First, I tried to use MediaPortal, but the DVR-MS files that I recorded using Windows Media Center did not show up in the listing found at TV->Recordings->compress. Is there a way to change the default folder (or to move my DVR-MS files) so that they appear in the list of programs that I can compress.

    Second, how do I use the burner plugin that comes with MediaPortal?

    Third, I confirmed that I have a lot of extra space on my HDD, but still could not get DVRMSToolbox to work. I'm followed the instructions. After about 1/2 second, the conversion process stops. What am I doing wrong?

    Fourth, is there any other free program that I can easily use to convert DVR-MS files to MPG files?

    Please help me. I desperate to get my DVR-MS files converted to MPG files.

    Thank you very much in advance for any help that you or anyone else is able to provide.

    Under TV->Recordings->compress you will only find the recordings you did with MediaPortal. :cry:

    Therefore I would recommend to use the burner plugin.
    Open the configuration.exe within the MediaPortal folder.
    Goto Plugins-Section and enable Burner plugin. There you can do same advanced settings if you like.
    Within Mediaportal goto Burner plugin->Video->Convert dvr-ms to mpeg
    Than you can select your file browsing kind of explorer and press enter.

    DVRMSTollbox is quite easy to use for this kind of conversion.
    For further information you will need to go to thegreenbutton.com forum where dvrmstoolbox was created.

    Regards
    Ralph
