I was having trouble encoding my TiVo transfer files into an AppleTV or similar file wherein the audio was not out of sync. After much digging, I found the solution (change the default framerate to 24fps in the Preferences>Video>Quality). Now, it syncs*.
Great. But I'm looking for a painless workflow. I'm not really archiving, just trying to use this feature for multi-room viewing. The reason I automatically have Popcorn convert, is because of deficiencies in the Toast Video Player**, and the fact that I'd like one interface (Front Row) that I can pump everything through.
I want it to be painless. Just hit transfer, and I can count on it downloading, popping to the folder I want that is FrontRow accessible and done.
However, I can't seem to set it such that my new settings are either saved as a unique new "setting" (i.e. available as a named setting from the pulldown), nor set it as the default setting that will be used when I choose "Pop It" from within Popcorn and/or automatically convert through the TiVo transfer utility.
I've combed the documentation, and I don't see any reference to being able to do this. Please help.
* I might add I dug this up on a forum by a helpful person somewhere and tested it. Roxio didn't help, and in fact all the forum responses here and tech support answers in general have been essentially: "yeah, that happens to some people. Its a small minority so not a priority. There is no fix." So, they couldn't even give me this workaround.
** The deficiency is that the Toast Video Player doesn't recognize the Apple Remote (or even the EyeTV remote), despite being based on the EyeTV player! The EyeTV video player itself does recognize the Apple Remote. And I'm not talking even the EyeTV version just released, but the older one. I honestly probably wouldn't even bother with the conversion if it did (as I used my iMac as a second bedroom TV as well as computer). I'm sorry, but that is just plain not giving a crap about the product. Popcorn generally has that vibe to me.
