Having a bit of trouble here.

I'm using a Hauppauge HVR900 and DVBViewer to record.

Lately I've been searching for alternatives to Handbrake for the encoding process of my captures, mostly because of the poor deinterlace features it has. Primarily they're music videos from C4 which I've been capturing for personal banking (Music Videos I can't buy on DVD or download, I record for myself). Anyway, I'd like to call myself rather fluent with the MediaWorks broadcast specs of C4 - 576i/AAC LATM/H.264 etc. etc, but I've been experiencing trouble encoding the H.264/AAC raw .ts captures in MeGUI. I've been able to get as far as scripting the avs file and loading the video, but from there it becomes an issue where (if) the video is interlaced, MeGUI has a difficult time in analysing it and suggesting the correct decoder. Whereas if it is Progressive, I can encode but the end result features no audio within the .MKV and the encoded x264 video stream is frequently pixelated.

I've been told that interlacing on the H.264 sources NZ uses is complex and can be difficult for programs to decode/analyse.

I have CoreAVC, Cyberlink and Monogram fully installed and they're working fine with DVBViewer.

So what I'm asking is... Has anyone yet successfully been able to encode and deinterlace to x264 MKV - an interlaced (possibly of NTSC origin) video, from the DVB-T source in MeGUI?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

well, I still haven't satisfactorily got MeGUI to do the audio properly, but if you're really keen, you can encode using handbrake, demux the audio, use that, then encode the video in Megui, and mux with VirtualDub. Longer process, but it works almost every time.

Cheers for that asnz. I can already encode the LATM stream externally by demuxing it from the .ts in DGAVCIndex and Winamp does a great job encoding it to a more compatible format such as wave or mp3. Replied also via PM.
