I thought this was pretty good for last night’s recording of
end of file, exiting
661 errors out of 12727848 mpeg packets. 12727187 good packets. Error
rate = 5.19e-05
That’s for a 450Kw xmtr 10 miles away receiving with a scanner antenna.
What works so far is: recording an hour long program in 3 20-minute
segments, making about 80Gb per segment. Then running gnuradio-0.9
on 3 cpu’s (with fake mc4020’s on another 3 cpu’s) and by about
10AM the next day they’re done. Then concatenate the 3 transport
streams into 1 8Gb file, and running hdtv2dvd on it for 2 hours,
and out pops one hour long 720x480 ntsc high quality dvd, all from
Tonight’s target video: Bones.
