Remove commercials from dvd recorded TV program


jayrwv

Question

I have recorded some TV programs onto dvd. They are off-air and contain commercials.

 

What Roxio program is suggested for making a new dvd that does not contain commercials?

 

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 media center edition.

If you haven't purchased yet, I suggest the Easy Media Creator Deluxe Suite. This includes Videowave 8 for editing and MyDVD 8 for creating the DVD. Also included is DVD Music Creator, CD burning, Photosuite 8, plus much much more.

 

Thanks ggrussell

 

I have Roxio Creator 8 Suite installed. Is that the same as Deluxe Suite? I have videowave 8 and mydvd 8.

 

Do you know if I should have recorded the TV program to the hard drive rather than to dvd?

 

I can't seem to get it to recognize the dvd with the TV program on it. I get confused with this stuff I must say.

 

Thanks again.

There are three versions of EMC 8: Essentials, Standard and Deluxe. The version is printed on the box and the discs. If it doesn't say Essentials or Deluxe, then you have the standard version.

 

If you could have recorded to the hard drive, it would have been a little easier. You must first get the TV program from the DVD to your harddrive. First, try using Media Import.

Insert DVD into the computer drive

Run Media Import

Click on VIDEO Tab

In the drop down list, select the drive and the video(s) on the disc will be listed.

Select the movie

Select the output format. Since the disc is MPEG, I would suggest changing that to MPEG.

Select WHERE you want the file. It defaults to My Documents/My Video

Change the prefix if needed

Click IMPORT NOW

 

 

If for some reason, this process fails. You can try copying the VOB files form the disc to your hard drive and rename the extension to MPG. This works for some, but not for everyone.

 

Once you have the movie on the hard drive as a MPEG file, you can then use it in Videowave to remove commercials or edit as you wish. You then move on to MyDVD 8 to design a DVD menu, mark the chapters, etc., and then burn to file, folder or disc.

Thanks so very much. I have determined that I have EMC Suite Version 8. I downloaded it from Roxio. I did not get a disk. In hindsight I wish I had ordered it on disc because with a disk I could do a repair of EMC 8 if I needed it. I can't do a repair from the downloaded file. I can, however, uninstall and reinstall and that fixes things.

 

I really appreciate your help and intend on trying that out tonight. Thanks again for great advice.

Following your procedure worked perfectly to get the TV program back on the hard drive. I am having learning problems with videowave. I have the manual and will get it figured out.

Thank you for such clear instructions.
