Re: Adding Shows/Episodes from External Source

Yeah... I'm gathering that from other sources (https://lists.gt.net/mythtv/users/519758#519758). I don't like it, but that entire thread is really interesting, and I'm considering changing my videos/recordings philosophy as I have recorded several entire series from livetv. Maybe I'll port those ove...

Adding Shows/Episodes from External Source

I've been ripping my DVDs over the past few days just fine. I put the MakeMKV ripped/Handbrake compressed files in the right folder for the Videos storage group (/var/lib/mythtv/videos), enter the Videos menu, scan for changes, and there they are! No problems at all. Then I had the thought, I've got...

Re: Recordings get LARGER after removing commercials!

Hmm... Seems odd. And you suggest this lossless transcoding as a way to cut the commercials, but not convert the file to an inferior file type? The lossless transcoding should keep it the same file type, thus actually shrink the file size? I don't know anything about HandBrake, would it help my situ...

Re: Recordings get LARGER after removing commercials!

Thanks, that's helpful.

Any thoughts on why the file gets bigger, not smaller? I can just correct the inaccurate commercial cuts and keep the original file without transcoding to keep file size down.

Re: Recordings get LARGER after removing commercials!

Thanks for the quick reply. Is there a way to do all that from within the Frontend, while I'm generating the cut list? I can go back to the terminal every time, but that - coupled with finding the non-obvious name for each recording - seems excessive. I used to do this all the time before upgrading,...

Recordings get LARGER after removing commercials!

After a new recording, I manually generate a cut list from the automatically detected commercials (they aren't always accurate, especially at the end of a show, so I manually check and fix them). Then I go back to the Watch Recordings menu, and select Job Options:Begin Transcoding:Autodetect. It suc...
