  1. Hi, folks. I've ssearched and found a bunch of solutions for this isssue when the source media are movies created in iMovie or FCP, but not from a .tivo file, and since I'm not authoring the audio or video, those solutions don't really apply. When I'm converting a .tivo file and saving to a disc image, then burning image to disc, I get a noticeable sync issue with audio leading the video. I have reencoding turned off, I have tried with both PCM and Dolby Digital selections in the custom preferences with the same result (even tried locking hte audio to 192 kbps rather than auto). The source .tivo file shows no sync issue when played with Toast Video Player. I don't have any software that can open the BDMV file for playback, so I can't verify the sync at that point in the process, but I don't think there's any way to lose sync during the burn to disc process so I must assume (until told different) that the issue must be introduced during the burn to disc image The issue starts immediately on playback and there is no noticeable "drift". The source video is MPEG-2, 1920x1080, 29.97 fps, audio is Dolby Digital 5.1, 48kHz. My actual procedure is to drop the .tivo file directly into Toast > Blu-ray Video, set the custom parameters to reencode off (ridiculous I have to set this every time I open Toast), I've even tried leaving it as MPEG-2, which is a little better but still noticeable, at least leaving it as MPEG-2 has the video leading the audio, which the brain interprets better. System is a Mac Mini 2.3GHz Quad Core, Late 2012, 480GB SATA III SSD, 16GB RAM. Anybody know how to fix this issue?
  2. Didn't find anything when searching for this, so here goes. I have a network at home (192.168.0.x), and I'm using a Mac Mini with network connection sharing enabled to provide connectivity to all the devices in my home theater setup (192.168.2.x). The home network is the wireless network and the home theater network hangs off an 8 port switch connected to the ethernet port of the Mac. My issue is that Tivo Transfer running on the Mac Mini that's doing the connection sharing only sees the Tivo in the home theater subnet. Now before we get started with Tivo visibility not being available across subnets, I understand the difference between Layers 2 and 3 and I understand an L2 protocol can't be routed due to the lack of an L3 header. But... (there's always a "but", right? ) the Mac has L2 access to both the wired and wireless networks, so Tivos on both networks should be seen by Tivo Transfer. Proof of this can be found by the fact that Tivos on the home network can see the Mac Mini (which has Tivo Desktop running)..., but not the reverse, Mac Mini cannot see Tivos on the home network. Can somebody edumacate me as to why this simple deployment doesn't work as expected?
