MacTF unable to see all the Topfield upgraded HDD

Hi all,

I recently upgraded my Topfield with a 500GB HDD and it is all working great, but my Mac TF download software doesn't see all the files on the disc. Has there been a patch or fix created to handle the larger HDD sizes?

Running with last release of MAC TF with Maverick OS


Cheers,

bgw

[/quote]That's entirely random, and depends which audio PID it sees first. The second audio is the "Audio Description" track, which is a considerably smaller file than the real one. In ProjectX you can filter to just extract the appropriate video and audio tracks (PIDs), so maybe a similar...

Hi, I've been following the very helpful guide to burning a DVD using my MacBook. Strangely enough Dr. Who and using MpegStreamClip & Sizzle it worked a treat. However when I tried to do a similar thing for the film Sean of the Dead off from ITV2. I've tried to convert the film to a MPEG and I c...
