Inspired by the technical challenge of Adam’s offer (I don’t really need the money), I started looking at what I’d need to add to my home entertainment network. There are very good tools available for the networked TiVo. Using TyStudio and Dr. DivX, I was able to convert a half hour of “Medium” quality TiVo video to a 100MB file. Hey, cool! But the process is totally GUI-driven, so the next step is to figure out how to do this stuff from the command line so that it can be automated. I can’t seem to find instructions for using the DivX.com tools from the command line. I’ve fooled around a little bit with Unix-domain tools like ffmpeg, but the results have been horrendous (wrong aspect ratio, bad video quality, no audio). Any ideas?
