All features / Full description:
Many modern satellite and cable receivers offer the ability to record television and radio programs by a so called PVR function. Such recordings are stored usually in the transport stream format (ts) or in a kindred format.

Unfortunately, such recordings often contain errors or incompatibilities that lead to incompatible recordings that can't be played back on other devices without problems.
Here, the TS-Doctor can help more than any other tool, for both SDTV and HDTV recordings. It verifies the recordings for errors, adapts the format to eliminate compatibility issues and cleaned up the recordings without changing the actual video and audio data.
In the end you will get a compatible transport stream (ts), that can be played easily on the computers or hardware media players such as popcornhour a100/110/c200, wdtv, xtream and many other similar devices.

The TS-Doctor works easy, fast and without quality loss !!!

In addition, the TS-Doctor provides several tools for analyzing, processing and conversion of recordings.

I'm very happy with the application. For me it's easy to use and I don't know why pleople find it complicated.

Since the past 3 or 4 years, every 4 or 5 weeks there is an update with sometimes realy great feature additions. Everytime free of charge.
Don't know any software that's that progressive and customer orientated. If I have problems with a recording, I can ask their free support (support (at) cypheros (point) de ) and I'll get help for my problems.

OK, I'm living in Europe but sometime I get records from a friend in the states. Now I can transform this ATSC files into DVB files, even my German Samsung TV has no problem to playback.

I'm very happy with this tool and need it every single day.

There are very few programs out there that let you trim TS files, and only one other I know of (mpeg2cut2) will do HD files. Project X is OK but it does not handle HD. This program has other cool abilities, like demuxing the soft subtitles & correcting (wihtin reason) some of the common transmission errors in TS (streamed mpeg2) files. There is unfortunately no useful documentation so it has a learning curve. That said, aside from fixing dodgy streams, you can 'prepare for cutting' which lets you mark areas for keeping and discarding (very good for the removal of commercials). You can save your choices as to which pieces to keep in a file (it is a simple text file) and when you are done marking your file into sections, you can have the program save the results in more than one file - grouping the marked areas together into more than one resulting file (you choose which sequential groups you want in which file). I take TV shows, remove the commercials, and save each episode into a file. Then I use HANDBREAK to convert the TS stream into an MP4.

One problem though...I am using the previous version as I has issues with the newest one. If yo use the newest version, do not say yes to updating the software during the install.

First, it's not one of the nicest or easiest to use programs out there. It has its learning curve though, and you have to know what you're doing pretty much by yourself, because the program itself is not of much help. But for me it does what it's supposed to do, and for me it's just about worth the money.

I mainly use TsDoctor to correct errors in HDTV recordings, both from sat and cable, and to strip those recordings from unwanted audio streams and first of all from DVB filler data. You can get a 20 Mbits/sec recording to well under 10 Mbits/sec - as an other commenter discovered - just by stripping all the "fresh air" the stations tend to add to their streams to keep the data rate up. TsDoctor doesn't alter video or audio quality in any way in this process. It just can save half of your storage space, and that's a good thing.

I found this program to be unusable and poorly supported by the "Help" documentation.


1. I opened a TS file and used the Tools | Index Creator option. The process appeared to run and displayed a progress bar with a waveform. When it was done, there were no options anywhere to save the resulting file. All of the options in the toolbar at the bottom of the application window were grayed out. The File menu had no option for saving the file with the regenerated indices. The "Help" had no information on this subject and failed searches on "Index Creator" and even "Index". So what is the point of using that tool if it re-creates an index that can't be saved in any way?

2. Rather than mess with that "Tool" and others in the menu, I just opened a TS file and clicked on the "Save New File" icon at the bottom of the application window. The program displayed a progress window and a number of messages telling me how it was "fixing" the file. This time I did get an output file, but the bitrate was changed for the worse. Here are the stats:

Input file bitrate info (as reported by MediaInfo):

Bit rate mode : Variable
Overall bit rate : 20.7 Mbps

TSDoctor Output file bitrate info:

Bit rate mode : Variable
Overall bit rate : 6830 Kbps

In the process of making that change, TSDoctor reduced the file size from ~3GB to about ~1GB. In other words, TSDoctor tossed about 2/3 of the video data.

I tried finding a way in the progam options to preserve the source bitrate but couldn't find any.

I'm not impressed.

Working actually with version 1.2.5 but bought this fine tool more than one year ago. All updates since then were free of charge. Easy to use and works with nearly any receiver format. Many new features and fixes since version 1.0.28 and very active development.
Repair, file merging and cutting is done in one single step. Very fast and reliable. Cutting is easy and fast and the tool fixed many different problems I had with my 3 satellite receivers no other tool could fix. Resulting files working perfect on WDTV live.

I have tried version 1.0.28 on one machine, and 1.0.33 on another.

The primary objective of this tool, cleansing recorded DVB streams for garbage, and catering DVB strams for further treatment works ok. You will get rid of al the fillerdata bloating your recorded DVB streams, and you will get an output manageable for other programmes to work with.

I will however give this product a low score. When previewing what you are working with, you will need an extra product such as CoreAVC in order to get a picture on your screen. And still, with CoreAVC your preview moves forward in a snails pace. On the same machines, VLC player plays the same files in realtime. This is not good.

This product has simply not gotten over the 0.x stage, and paying 29 Euro's is too much.

It's amazing to read how people give this tool 1 out of 10 for the value for money part, since this tool is 100% free lol.

I like this tool, it's clean and simple. You can remove unwanted streams with a single click and in the new version it even supports conversion to MKV.

Tried again witn 1.0.13 but still will not install on Windows 7 64-bit. Also tried in an XP-Mode virtual machine and got the same error saying it needs administrator rights (which I have). I did get it to install on a real XP PC.

My old slow computer doesn't really allow for the viewer to work in play mode. But it scans just fine in Pause mode. Haven't found another program that cuts as well or as easy. Haven't found a way to do multiple cuts without re-entering the original back into the program.
Very nice program

This is the only tool for cuttting h.264 ts-files(e.g. arte HD, via Terratec DVB-C tuner)that works flawlessly on my rather old and codec-ridden Win XP. However, needs Haali Media Splitter and CoreAVC codec to use preview function on my machine.

This is the ONLY program I've used which can seamlessly join the DVR output files from my Fortec Star FS-4400 Satellite USB PVR into one large TS file. If you own a Fortec Star 4400 or a Comag Satellite PVR (which both output DVR files), this software is essential.

You simply drag the "" file from each recorded program, onto the TS-Doctor interface; choose to cut any junk packet data; press OK... That's all there is to it. It's amazing.

Once it has output one large merged TS file, you can losslessly change to a DVD compliant MPEG file using the "Quick Stream Fix" in VideoReDo Plus ready for editing and authoring.

I can't recommend it highly enough. It's absolutely fantastic.

My firewall stops it from installing unless I disable it.
Constant annoying update checks unless disabled after installation.
I only wish the author would make a more user friendlier packaged application.
Functionality is strictly limited to ts files.
