I've got to get some time to play with this during the fall/winter...it's been just too busy this summer, and I've still got another dish to install.

I know that's not what you were suggesting, but I'll change the default output extension from .ts to .bin since .ts can be misleading (in many cases, the output file is not a transport stream).


Actually .ts works just fine as far as I'm concerned.  Renaming the files is  something I do so the files show up with a thumbnail image and play in the right app when you click on them.  When the process is done there are 128 .ts files in the dir but if you run file *.ts you'll see most are not mpg but txt or jpg or some thing else. My script just sorts through that all and just keeps the video and deletes all the rest. Once they get renamed to mpg the thumbnails show me what is clear or crypt and I can just select the crypt files and delete them.

Yes, I was always just using the same name for the input so if I ran it again on the same PID that was when it would overwrite the files.  Not an issue. I can either create a unique named fifo each time the script runs or just continue to have the script rename files once I kill off the stream.

but I guess whatever I set it to will never be enough when processing very large amounts of data.


Yes,  I wouldn't worry about that either.  It's easy to work with and you can't really let it run forever anyway as it fills up the hard drive pretty fast. 

Awesome app.  It's going to take me until the next games to get through all the Olympic highlights....

I keep getting "error cannot open file" from the command prompt window and cannot figure out why. I am using A windows 7 machime with ;C:\IPcleaner at the end of my system path variable line. IPcleaner.exe -infile=PID_1036.bin test1.ts -pid=1036 -sub=none, I thought was the correct line but guess not. Have tried different line combinations and still no results. the last version I had was 3 something and it worked fine with the command prompt. Any help appreciated. Thanx.

Hey metalman37  I just drop the latest IPcleaner.exe in the folder that has the saved "infile"  make a .bat file with  "ipcleaner -infile=PID_1036.bin -pid=1036 -sub=all" and double click the bat file. then watch the files fill in the folder. "test.ts" not needed

Yes, I was referring to pipes on Linux/Unix. Pipes are also available on Windows but they're trickier to use. If TSReader could output to a pipe, it might be possible to make it work, but I don't think it supports it.

Assuming the input file is correct, it sounds like you are not using v0.43 but an older version. "-infile=" won't work with older versions, as it will be considered part of the input filename. You can check the version by running 'ipcleaner' without any parameters.

If the version checks out, follow dyo's suggestions.

I haven't tried ipcleaner yet, have'nt got around to it, but I'd like to learn linux.
 Would it be easier to do in linux?
 A friend mentioned virtual box (where I could run Ubuntu from on my desktop)
or would there to much cpu usage with all that going on?

win XP
pentium 4 3.2 ghz dual core
500 gig HD
8 GB ddr3

About the only difference with IPcleaner in Linux is that you don't need to save the TS dump to a file. You can dump the TS stream to a FIFO and have IPcleaner read from that. Frees up a lot of hard drive space and lets you see what is coming in as it is coming in so you don't stop the TS dump right in  the middle of a show. I don't know if you would call that easier, but it's much handier.

Easiest way to try Linux is to download one of the live install dvd or cd images.  Burn it to a disc and then just reboot your computer from the cd/dvd drive.  You can run Linux from there without doing any install.  None of the changes you make will survive a reboot, but you can play with it all you want and get a feel for things.

For first time users to do an install I always suggest you find a spare hard drive and install to that making sure to install the Linux grub boot loader  onto that hard drive rather than over write your existing windows boot loader. Use the bios menu to switch the boot order so that hard drive is now first. It will set things up so you can boot linux or windows from the grub boot loader. If you change your mind later on all you need to do is take out that hard drive and your windows install is still there totally unchanged.

I don't think a virtual machine is heavy on cpu, but it is on memory.  You have plenty of both so I would assume your machine would handle a virtual machine OK, but I've never run anything like that so  really can't say with certainty.

Thanks bluzee, thats all good info appreciate it. I might just try ipcleaner and see how that goes and when I get use to it start playing around with linux on a spare hard drive. I am some what familar with Dos commands, if that helps.
Thanks agaiin

ah ha success, Thanks mips for the tool. I got it working and figured it out
I've been playing around with this for 2 hours (mostly trying to find a feed). thanks bluzee and everyone else for your posts.  

g18 11880 v 30000 s2/8 pid 0x0904(2308) Americas funniest home videos

added: This was my first try. I recorded the whole mux (just like the readme said) and picked the pid that had the highest amount of packets. It played perfect. I've had some on g28c  that I can't get to play right still playing with it.

Okidokios,

In response to your PM here is the script I use in Linux to dump stuff in real time with IPcleaner.  You need wine installed to run IPcleaner.  Uses dvbstream to tune and dump to a FIFO. IPcleaner reads from the FIFO.  I only need frequency to tune my Prof so don't have a SR param.  Frequency gets calculated to L Band, so you don't need a switch for LO. Last part sorts out the files after you kill the process with ctrl + c.  Renames movies and deletes everything else.  Fire it up and it'll run until it hits sub128.ts.  Check and see if any of your other files are still downloading, if they are done kill it off and once it's done sorting the files you can fire it back up again for another 128.

Naming files .bin is the same as naming them .exe.  mime type is application/octet-stream. No file previews in file manager.

Can you read from dvr0 ? Should be able to. I added that function to the cli demux app as week as stv090x-scan

I seem to remember trying that and it did not work, but I'll have to give that another try.  You're thinking push the demux button on the data PID in stv090x-scan dialog then fire up IPcleaner with dvr0 as the input file?  Still haven't built the latest beta. I'll have to and then give that a try.  If that works I gather it's something that could be built into your app?  An mplayer button, demux button, IPcleaner button.... etc?

Edit: You know...  I haven't tried that since -sub=all    now I'm thinking...   have to hurry home and try that...

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well.
