Hello! I know it's been more than a year and a half since I last posted, but I got sidelined on my capturing project with a new baby. (Yes, we now have two under two... which explains my absence....

Holy cow! I am in disbelief at the results you were able to achieve (and would still be amazed even if the original wasn't in nearly as bad shape as it was).

I actually have mixed feelings on this. On one hand, it's unfortunate that PE's MP4 encodes have the stutter. But, I'm also relieved you're seeing the same behavior on your devices.

I may stick...

Sorry, I should have said the M2T file was in fact H.264. So, it seems like the Oppo may be okay with interlaced H.264 in the transport stream... but not in the MP4 container.

So, I still need to...

I made sure all the settings on the TBC were reset, and re-captured. The result was the same.
