NEW VERSION 0.6.0 r166

dvbcut is a Qt application that allows you to select certain parts of an MPEG transport stream (as received via Digital Video Broadcasting, DVB) and save these parts into a single MPEG output file. It follows a "keyhole surgery" approach where the input video and audio data is mostly kept unchanged, and only very few frames at the beginning and/or end of the selected range are re-encoded in order to obtain a valid MPEG file.

I love how well this tool works. I wasn't sure about the dual sliders at first but after I got the hang of them it really does make a lot of sense. I was most impressed by the fact that I didn't have any audio video sync issues when cutting out commercials. I'm using media center to record the shows and after finally getting them converted from wtv files to mpeg files I figured cutting would be the easy part. I tried a number of different programs and every one of them either degraded the quality or desynchronized the file. This was the first thing I've found for properly cutting out just the parts I wanted and giving me a workable mpeg. Many thanks to the author of this software.

Didn't work for me.
It will let you choose a trp file, but claims it "does not contain any video", which
I know for sure is false..

I was looking for a program to edit ATSC HDTV transport streams, so I tried this one.

Good: Handles HDTV .ts file as input fine. Output as transport stream is recognized by DGIndex and therefore is convertible to DVD or other digital formats using Avisynth etc. Double-slider navigation works well for quickly zeroing in on a frame once you figure out what it does by playing with both sliders. Cuts frame accurately as claimed, and handles AC3 audio cutting well. Gets rid of audio delay, a huge plus.

Bad: None of the 4 export formats play properly in BeyondTV, making it fail my purpose. (HDTV2MPEG works but only cuts on GOPS and leaves audio delay). Apparently "transport stream" output is not HDTV compliant. "go" buttons need tooltips. (Hint: Go buttons jump to a frame #, left: unedited #s, right: edited frame #s.) Needs an export button in the toolbar. Needs an option to export segments as separate files.
