As mentioned, this program basically only does one thing, but it does that thing very well.

Converting HDTV transport streams to DVD spec mpeg files (or dvd files if you want them).

I would like to see more features added (such as bitrate control, etc), but as far as dvd authoring goes, that is handled by other programs good enough.

While it is short on features it is simple, stable, excellent results and fairly fast. Since starting to record OTA ts and tp streams this program has become in valuable for burning to DVD and for making mpeg files that play smoothly on my networked media player. The PQ for converted HD files is very good.

I haven't reverse engineered this to truly find out. But, while experimenting I believe I've found what this program is doing to so magically encode without any a/v synch issues! And I think this may help a few of the requests 1) variable bitrate 2) just the mpg, not the full DVD

In the directory where you install this, you'll find a ffmpeg.exe. This is a windows built version of the ffmpeg project. This is actually one of the best parts of this program is that it comes with a Windows version of ffmpeg. The only other one I can find is the one that comes with ffmpeggui, but that one was build in 02/2005. The one with HDTV2DVD is newer, build 09/2005.

If you open a command prompt and navigate to that directory and then run the following command:
ffmpeg.exe -i "c:\input.ts" -benchmark -target ntsc-dvd -aspect 16:9 -b 3000 -ac 6 "c:\output.mpg"

It will create a 720x480 16:9 MPEG2 with full 5.1 AC3 (assuming your source has it) that you can then throw into DVDAuthor, TMPG DVD Author, etc. 3000 kbps will get you approx. 4, 40 min shows on one DVD. Up that to about 4100-4150

I've been struggling for quite a while converting to DivX using AviSynth, DVD2Avi2, VirtualDub, etc. This is a simple one-step method to get a file that you can play on any DVD Player.

Hope this helps!

Drag and Drop only.. no real options, but it does work and it actually runs pretty quickly. Would like to see more menus (ability to turn off the DVD creation step - just the .mpg thank you) and more ability to control bit rate. Quality is fair - fine for most conversions but still has plenty of digital artifacts (aliasing, aka jaggies, stair stepping, barber polling, and shimmering).

Ah, a one-trick pony perhaps but it's ridiculously good at the trick it performs--re-encode High Def .ts files to SD DVD titlesets in VERY short order. I tried it on a file where NeroVision Express didn't work very well, and it did a great job.

I would like to see some more features myself, but it has instantly soared-up on my list of high-def tools.

This is just a shell for ffmpeg and a very simple IFO set maker. Not a bad idea but it would be nicer if it pumped through a user-selected range of encoders and allowed AviSynth script and DGIndex support. It's a one-trick pony but, at version 0.3 and only a few days old, that's about all that should be expected. This is an ok tool for people who want a one-click solution.
