Q: Solved: TV Converter Box or DTV Converter Box

I've searced everywhere that I can find to locate a URL to a "current (2009) Comparison Review" of DTV Converter boxes.

I have only (4) days left to purchase 2 of them with the coupons I have. An online purchase may not be feasible due to shipping time. But, the government listed many local stores in my zipcode (94606) and/or (94501) that carry "coupon-eligible converter boxes."

Every review that I found was dated 2007 or 2008. My hope is that by now (2009), hardware technology and software on these units will have improved. Of course, I prefer to buy latest technology rather than 1 or 2 year old technology for the same expenditure.

I'm trying to find a side-by-side comparision with recommendations for the best ones. Of course, I'm hoping for an unbiased review! That's difficult on the www!

I've been to Tom's Hardware Guide, Cnet (which was no help at all) and many other links! Cnet listed only 2 in their review, and their review was way out of date). I've visited at least 15 or 20 other URL's, but none gave me what I want. None were current nor definitive.

Can anybody here advise me on what to avoid and/or which Brand/Model delivers best performance, both "on-screen" software, and superior technological design?

I think one of the following had a A+ rating. But, I'm not sure at the moment. I didn't save the URL:

-- DISH Network TR-40CRA
-- DISH Network DTVPal/Plus

Have any of you bought a product Brand/Model that you love and can recommend? Looking for 'bells and whistles' etc., but mostly "control" features for image quality and signal handling. Neither of my two TV's have HD by default.

My two TV Converter Box coupons are at $40.00 each. Of course, I'm willing to pay beyond that for quality units.

Your timely replies will be appreciated greatly! Thanks.

Hi, the best video converter I ever used has been SUPER

http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

It supports just about ever format I have ever seen, and it can play the videos back better than any other video players (I used it to watch some videos that vlc, windows, real, etc. had problems playing).

It is also free on top of how well it works, and probably the best working program on vista lol.

After tackling this for a good 6 hours, Iím ready to ask for some help.

I play MOV files with Quick Alternative, and they play flawlessly. However, I have learned that putting the movies on DVD is not so effortless.

Try as I might with various freeware tools, I cannot for the LIFE of me, EXTRACT THE AUDIO! Not even WinAVIVideo will convert the fileís audio Ė every single tool Iíve used will only give me the video result. When previewing my project in Nero, it only plays the video portion of the MOV files as well!

Do you experts know of a freeware tool that will either:

1. Convert MOV files (their audio and video!) to something I can burn to DVD with Nero (convert it to WMV, DivX, I donít care!)

Or

2. A program that will extract the audio into a wave/mp3 file for me to join with TMPG.

I really wanna see my favorite band rocking out on my TV

I have one of those neat little Flip Video recorders made by Pure Digital and love it ..... except for the fact that it records in avi format. Some players will play the files while others won't ...... Windows Media Player on one computer plays them without a problem while on other computers I get sound but no video. I would like to convert the avi files into wmv or mpeg. I've downloaded and tried 3 different software products that are freeware, but none seem to work - they convert the files, but then won't play.

Anyone know of software that will convert avi to wmv or mpeg which will then work with any player? I'd like freeware, but don't mind paying for something that has a trail period and isn't overly expensive.

Thanks for any assistance.

Hello again,

I am looking for a program that will convert AVI video to WMV video. I want the program to be able to convert a video to a video that is 1024 X 768 or lower if possible. I have tried using Windows Movie Maker, but it seems like it makes the video files bigger than they need to be when it converts them. I know the files will be large with a 1024 X 768 resolution. I am willing to see if 800 X 600 is better.

The reason I need the videos so big, is the company I am working for does training videos online, where they are showing clients how to click around a website and such. I have found Camstudio to be a good, free, screen recorder. The only problem, is it saves the files as AVI, which are extremely large.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, just today I discovered a new format that might come in handy if it comes to compressing music files - the M4A (MPEG-4 Audio). The question is: is there a free converter for changing MP3 INTO M4A? I didn't find any answers to this on the forum boards, so that's why I'm writing. Still, I know that there are loads of M4A ----> MP3/WMA converters, but I don't need any of them.
Why do I need it? Let me put it this way: some Sony Ericsson phones CAN play those files and M4A means about 4 times more songs than MP3 with the same/better quality. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? :>

Hey everyone!

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I feel like it relates to networking.

I work at a chemical company and we have a peace of lab equipment; a Varian CP-3800 GC - it is a Gas Chromatograph that connects to an old computer we have sitting running Windows XP SP3 and has a NIC card in it with a BNC connector. This peace of lab equipment runs over this BNC connection.

So what I am trying to do is to migrate to a new computer; put the NIC card in the new computer running Windows 7 x64. Here are my problems though.
The BNC card manufacture, Realtek has not made drivers for Windows 7. Model of the NIC is RTL8029AS
I tried a BNC to RJ45 converter, but it seems like either the GC does not see the connection or the converter is bad, but the RJ45 lights blink but the BNC lights show no activity.

Has anyone delt with something like this before? Any ideas?

What I did was drag a few files at a time. (each folder was a differnt artist). Then I put in playback as mp3.

I'm looking for an image format converter, but before you point to the standard converters, like .png to .jpg or .gif to .ico, let me point out that the format I want to convert from is machine language.
I have an old email archived, and it has an image shown in the form "iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAZQAAAEqCAIAAAC9ZzHyAAAACXBIWXMAAA7EAAAOxAGVKw4bAAAA . . ." (that's what I'm calling "machine language", though that may not be correct . . . but you get the point).
I know that particular image is a color photo. What I would like to do is take that "code" and convert it back to an image format, like .jpg or .png, so that I can view it.
I have a vague memory that I ran across something like that one time, but if I do a Google search on "image converter" all I get is the standard stuff that converts those .jpg to .png and .gif to .ico and such. That's not what I'm looking for.
And if I do a Google search on "binary images" all I get is stuff about black and white and pixels for two colors and such. So that's not it either.
Does the animal I'm looking for exist?
(BTW, my OS is Ubuntu . . . which is why I'm asking this question in this forum . . . so Windows graphics editors are out. Well . . . I guess I can somehow manipulate it over to my Windows VM if I have to, but I'd prefer something in Ubuntu.)

Forum rules - Circumventing Copy Protection / Copyright Infringement - While we believe it's reasonable to make backup copies of CDs and DVDs that you own, a lot of people break copy protection for the wrong reasons. The law is still vague as to whether or not it's legal to break copy protection in order to make such a backup, even for personal use. (The DMCA, for example, seems to make it illegal). If we can find a nice way to draw the line, we may reconsider this in the future as laws get sorted out. As a result, we do not allow discussion on how to break copy protection or use emulation software at this time.

Hello,

I'm having problems using the Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer. I can convert all files fine except avi to wmv. I would really like to get it working in SUPER so I don't have to switch between converters. If anyone has any other suggestions for a better converter or another method of conversion or something that would also be great (I don't use Media Convert because I need to convert files bigger than 150MB and, again, that would mean using two converters for files that are bigger than that and I don't want to do that if possible).

So, anyway, onto the problem. I drag the files into the DROP A VALID MULTIMEDIA FILE HERE pane, and encode. In the Output Status Box (or whatever that's called), it says "Working on It!" for a long time, and after an hour or so (I'm trying to convert a pretty big file, but when the file is smaller, the "Working on It!" stage is of course shorter, but the end result is the same), it gives me the generic "An error has occured, please click for details," error message.

I also posted my problem on eRightSoft's forum, and I was told to download this. I tried it again after the install of those files, and I still have the same problem.

So, that's my problem, if someone could help find out what the problem is and help me fix it that would be great!
If there is ANYTHING that I should've posted or would like for me to find out, I am more than willing ... Read more

A:Solved: SUPER (converter) Problem

I have rarely gotten that conversion configuration to work properly -- usually they complete (if directshow decode is checked) -- but Windows Media Player informs me a codec is needed (generally the "low motion" codec) -- I install everything -- but still get the error.

VideoLan player will play it.

However, here is one configuration that does seem to work --

WMV (output container)
MS-mpeg4-V2 (output video codec)
mp3 (output Audio Codec.

DirectShow checked

The rest at the defaults.

Whether this works for you may depend on the actual AVI file being decoded and what its internal codecs are.

For this one, the Video codec was Windows Media Video 9; the Audio, PCM

I don't need to do anything fancy... I just have a bunch of video files in 25fps and a DLNA media player that won't accept them that way; it wants them in 29.97/30fps. Is there anything simple (read: free) that will do this without all the other baggage?
 

A:Solved: Video framerate converter?

I've not seen it done, but it could be possible. It could result in stuttering as you are trying to add frames that aren't present in the original. Likely because the originals were PAL and not NTSC. For PC use, this isn't an issue and I'm surprised it's an issue with your hardware player.

So, I've shot some video footage on MiniDV that I'm wanting to edit. There is about 5 mins of video that I want the video of ONLY so I can record a new audio track to put with it in the final video.

What I've done thus far is import the video to my machine using Kino on Linux and save the video in question as a MPEG-4 AVI file.

I'm able to import that file into the SUPER converter and demux the audio and video streams. SUPER creates a MP3 file I can play ok with VLC but it creates a M4V file VLC can't play because it has problems accessing the audio (for whatever reason).

I'm about to try converting the AVI file to WMV format in the SUPER converter and simply disable the audio part. Will that produce a WMV file with only the video? Is there some other format I should output the video to?

I'm running the latest version of the SUPER converter on Windows XP Home SP3.

Thanks!

Peace...
