Here is my issue......
There is an old TV show that I record using with my Tivo Premiere DVR. The show is standard def. When it comes on the television it fills up my entire screen.
I record this show with my Tivo Premiere. Then I use software from VideoRedo
(TV suite) to edit these files and to strip out the unwanted content. My output files are regular ole, mpeg.
FYI.... the frame size on the output files shows to be 528x480.
Now, when I take these regular mpeg files from VideoRedo and upload them back to the Tivo, it plays fine and it does fill up the entire screen. The audio is good. Everything is good.
If I take the mpeg output file, and then run it through Handbrake
in order to convert the files to h.264/MP4, and THEN send that to the tivo to be played, the tivo creates unwanted black bars on the sides of the video.
How can I fix this? Is there some way to configure the settings in VideoRedo, or Handbrake, so that the files which come out of Handbrake appear as 16:9 full screen on Tivo?
I am thinking that perhaps if I can somehow resize the frame from 528x480 to something which is a 16:9 ratio then perhaps that will fix this issue.
Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas, intelligence, etc. on this topic would be very welcome, if anybody has any knowledge on this subject.
