Files can be opened on the receiver disk and can be transferred and demuxed to the PC. It is not neccessary to copy the files to the PC and then demux. Removing cuts and other write access operations are not supported.
You can still open files on PC drives as well.
- Cut-area preview
DVR-studio creates a short MPEG-file around the cut-area and opens it with the associated software player. So you can check how the edited area will look like and also find out which audio track is which language...

I'm very disapointed. Middle of the year the old version HD4 stopped working and I was forced to pay for the update to DVR-Studio UHD. Now again problems on starting the application for more than a week. Some strange error "Error: MainServerHighLoad" appears and application shuts down.
I looks like the app only starts if the server of the manufacturer is working perfect and that's not the case on many days of the year. The worst software I have ever seen.

Apps like this, needing permanent internet connection are a pain in the ass but if their server is so buggy it's even more worse.

Review by Johnny Controletti Johnny Controletti on Oct 22, 2018 Version: DVR-Studio UHD 1.06 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

This is usefull when you wish to extract mpeg files from DVB PVRs HDs, like the ones from Topfield, Humax, Homecast, Dreambox, etc

Most of those receivers, have their own application for this, but this is a more "universal" tool.

You may experiance lipsynch problems at times, especially when you extract grabbs from channels like "Enter Ukrain" or the Sky Italia channels

Review by SatStorm on Apr 25, 2005 Version: 1.02 OS: Win2K Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 8/10

This is a really easy-to use DVB-stream editor / demuxer /remuxer. It had some trouble with NTSC streams, not a problem for me though. But maybe someone could send the author a NTSC sample...
I use it to convert my Dreambox DM7000 streams into DVDs. Especially nice is the "search for ads" feature. Sometimes looks like a little magic...
