Cheers,
Hi Rhino,

theoretically it should be possible as you said and GraphEdit really could be the way. I'll see if there's any help in those tutorials.

Thanks!

I've done some 128kbps VBR MP3->128kbps MP2 encodes and they actually sound better than those captured audio clips re-encoded at 128kbps!
Thanks, Boulder.

I've started using 160kbps instead of 128kbps from Headac3he. The sound is much improved, though with corresponding loss of video space. No real choice though, so I'll use 160kbps until some other option becomes available. Really love the PVR-250's video at 704x480 and 480x480 MPEG2!

heh nicksteel. I got me one of these PVr babies - although i went for the PVR-350. Isn't the software which comes with it dog turd! Currently i'm using wintvcap which works really nicely, but it seems a bit of a waste of money to run this board through a little shareware program. The sound capture is awsome on this - so much better than my soundcard. Also, no more ausio.Video sync problems! I think the video is a little too soft - but very clean. I think you can adjust the Sharpness and the board does its own temporal/spatial smoothing so i may try to turn those off.

The tv out on the PVR-350 is superb quality, but only works with MPeg-2 files - not DVD or avi. Luckilly for me, thats all i want it for. The Tv out quality is on a par with a proper DVD player. No more interlacing problems like i used to get with my GeForce MMX cards tv out.

Has anyone tried Sage yet - i couldn't get Snapstream to work.
