[Change] Transport stream: Added new Shift+Tools>Options, "15. Sample points to check for PMT ... " to improve subtitle detection.

This change is specifically for users who have trouble detecting subtitles from Finish TV broadcasts. If TVSuite isn't detecting subtitles, try increasing this value to 2,3 or 4. Usually a value of "2" will suffice. What this does is cause TVSuite to scan for different program maps at multiple places in the source file. We've found that Finish broadcasts often start with one program map and then change the program map part way into the file to reflect the presence of subtitle streams. This should help detect that.

Beta build 566 has been posted.

There are quite a few changes in this beta so please read the release notes carefully.

For those where the AC3 frames go silent when authoring, we think this has been fixed.

There is now a dual pass encoding option on the DVD output options video tab. In our experiments we have found that this significantly improves the quality of the output DVD at low bit rates ( < 3 Mbps). NOTE: When using the dual pass encoding, the estimated time remaining gets reset for each title and is not reliable. This will be addressed in an upcoming beta.

The DVD re-encoder now offers a multi-threaded option (enabled by default) which gives a 20-30% speed improvement when recoding on dual core systems. We haven't done speed tests on quad cores.

Beta Build 567 has been posted.

Some nice new enhancements in this release, so please check out the release notes.

You can now queue multiple DVD projects to the batch queue.


Staff member
Beta Build 568 has been posted.

Please see release notes for changes and fixes.

If you still need to have "Ignore Transport Stream Maps" checked to open your files, then try setting "#11, Number of Times a PMT has to be read" to a larger value like 10 or 20. The default for new installs has been increased from 6 to 10, but won't change for existing installs. This parameter is on the shift+Tools>Options>Page.

We just found a small problem with the batch manager in build 568. Until we get a new build out, if you're having problems adding a single project or file in the batch manager, copy the VideoReDoBatch.exe from build 567 into the 568 installation folder.

We will try to get this fixed as soon as possible.

Fixed the batch manager which broke in build 568.

See release notes for other fixes and changes.

Beta 570 has been posted.

New frame type display option with thumbnails. Enable it on the View>Thumbnail options.

Saving to DVR-MS files with Vista should no longer require UAC bypass or Admin privileges.

There's a new version of the embedded license manager in this build. Doesn't change anything but a couple of users had reported some DEP problems on XP SP3. We hope this build addresses it.

Beta 572 has been posted.

Fixes problem with unregistered titler OCX.

Check out release notes (above) for other changes. Previous beta was 570, so changes in this build include changes listed for both 571 and 572.

Beta 573 has been posted.

.wtv support has been improved. You should be able to QSF most NTSC files to other formats. If you save in DVR-MS format, metadata is preserved. Direct editing seems to work well on many, but not all, files. PAL files recorded from DVB tuners, audio support is still not working 100% of the time. .wtv uses a new technique of multiplexing audio streams and we haven't completed support for it yet.

We think we've addressed the DVR-MS issue when saving HD files. Navigation on the saved file should now be smooth, and the file length should be correct. Some internal settings have been made automatic, so the Shift+Tools>Options #28 DVRMS buffer size, has been removed.

The audio seek and thumbnail problem introduced in 572 has been fixed.

For those who wanted a lower priority setting for AdDetective, there's a new option on the Ad-Detective common for "Lowest" priority. For Win2K/XP, this sets the priority level two levels done (low sets it one level down). For Vista and W7, we set the priority to "Background thread" mode. Please give us feedback on the original thread:

Some fixes were made to "GOP accurate" cutting to not round up the cut start or cut end to the next GOP.

Please release the release notes for the rest of the changes.

Beta 579 has been posted.

Note: This version now includes translations for a number of languages. If you are interested in editing the translation or want to create a new one, please contact Pat (user PHD) either on the message board or at support @

Update: This build addresses the Vista SP2 / Comodo problem. We can't get it to fail here so if you've had the problem please give the beta a try and let us know if this build fixes it.

Beta 583 has been posted.

There's an important change in this release. We would like to remove the DX and DX-multimon video driver support in future builds to provide additional functionality.

To this end, when you run the configuration wizard, if you are using those video drivers, the configuration wizard will automatically switch you to the VMR7 driver. We believe that the VMR7 driver should be a seamless replacement for the DX drivers, but if not, you can revert back by going to the Tools>Options>Playback devices page. Please let us know, via an email to support @ if the VMR7 driver causes any issues for you.

Beta 586 has been posted.

1) Last posted beta for TVSuite was 583, so please check change list for 584, 585, and 586.

2) Note new version number sequence: 3.20 is TVSuite, and the last 3 digits are the code base.

3) New option on Thumbnail parameters to limit the number of displayed thumbnails. This will improve performance if you are editing in a large window with room for many thumbnails.

Beta 587 has been posted.

Important fix for some Core I7 CPUs where audio would stutter or get out of sync during playback. Didn't affect output.


Staff member
Beta 596 has been posted.

Please see release notes, above, for changes.

Please note, WTV support has been removed from TVSuite V3. Further development of WTV will be in Version 4.

2010-02-24, Posted a new build of 596 which fixes a long-time bug with remembered window positions in a multi-monitor system and a secondary display is to the right of the primary display.

Beta 597 has been posted.

Fixed 3 problems that were broken in 597:

1) 16:9 DVD titling.
2) Crash when resizing a video to a DVD.
3) Some TS files with AC3 couldn't be opened due to a change in the way we processed the program map.

Note, New Dutch translation included with this build. We would appreciate comments and corrections. Some of the buttons on the front screen will be enlarged in the next build.
