Inappropriate Low Disk Space Warning

Description of problem or question: The message "Your destination disk is almost full. You need to make more space available on your destination disk." appears when there is plenty of space. (15GB for a 122.5MB source.) Interestingly, perhaps, version 1.1.10 exhibits the problem nowadays too yet do...

Re: Apple TV 3 Puzzles

Thank you for your suggestion. The only tests I've done - both via 0.10.5 with one the standard preset and the other the corrected (160 kbps AC3 stream) one - showed a 2.5 MB difference on 71 MB (standard preset) which suggests it would be a little higher gain. (That would be a nice bite out of the ...

Re: Apple TV 3 Puzzles

Thank you for the quick reply. Documentation... The voluntary work which you and other contributors do (in every area) is very much appreciated. (I understand your stance of not accepting donations lest users nudge you too hard though I'd make such and would even pay for the application though hope ...

Re: Apple TV 3 Puzzles

Thank you for the suggestion - almost a year ago now. I only discovered it a few months ago as I've been otherwise occupied - as has been the case until now when I've finally found time to consider it and, in fact, dig deeper with the aside. Given the minor difference mentioned I've not bothered ado...

Re: Apple TV 3 Puzzles

Here is a log for the version 1.0.2 "Apple 1080p30 Surround" encode of an EyeTV version 2.5.3 DVB-T (UK PAL) recording. Let me know if a log for an alternative encode is needed to answer my main question. N.B. I may - or may not - pick up the "aside" later.

Apple TV 3 Puzzles

I record off DVB-T in the UK - which is MPEG-2, 704 x 576, 25 fps with a (varying) bit rate depending on the channel but usually close to 4 Mbps - using an Elgato EyeTV device. In recent years I used HandBrake - most recently 0.10.5 - and exported the programmes I wanted to keep (naughty I know) usi...

Re: VHS to Apple TV

I've had a bit of a play (despite time not being on my side) and having tried the "NLmeans" filter ("Picture / Filters") with Preset "Light" (whatever that means) and Tune "Tape" can see subtle differences. However, it's so subtle that I'm having difficulty deciding and will have to run a few more t...

Re: VHS to Apple TV

Thanks for the further suggestions.

I happened across that thread before starting mine but stopped reading it when the kicking started. However, I've just read it through but will need to again tomorrow when I'm more awake (it's very late where I am) and see if I can make more sense of it.

Re: VHS to Apple TV

Woodstock... Thank you for the advice. I'll use "Devices / Apple 1080p/30 Surround" so that I can continue to use my Apple TV 3 when I also have the next model - each in different rooms - though given the source ""Devices / Apple 1080p/30 Surround" might be as well. As you say it depends how it look...

Re: VHS to Apple TV

Just try the defaults. My first attempt with 1.0.1 failed - both with the default and the legacy Apple TV 3 - so I downloaded the latest nightly build and it worked. I've not checked the change log since 1.0.1 but clearly something was bad and is now good. Here is the requested Activity Log for one...

Re: VHS to Apple TV

I have no activity log to submit and cannot generate one as I don't know which preset to try. If a preset is suggested I'll run a one minute music performance clip through it.

VHS to Apple TV

I have a slew of UK television programmes recorded on VHS - mostly music performances with some documentaries and other odds & sods. All are PAL, of course, and some have mono audio with others having NICAM stereo audio which my VHS recorder/player can handle. I want to capture and encode them to pl...

Daylight Saving Time Effect

I was running a batch of conversions Saturday night into Sunday morning with a likely processing time of about eight hours and when Daylight Saving Time kicked at 01:00 GMT - i.e. moving the time forwards an hour - the remaining conversions were reported as done but they weren't.

[FIXED] Select Default Preset Crash

Clean install with no Preferences in place beyond those on first run. On choosing “Select Default Preset” via “Presets” menu it crashes. This appears to be due to no default preset existing at this point. The option should not be available until a default preset has been set. OS X 10.10.1. No other ...
