Thread: Popcorn A110 Canon HV20 PAL

    Default Popcorn A110 Canon HV20 PAL

    Hi,

    Just arrived here and i have a question
    I tried searching but could not find the answer.

    I have a Canon HV 20, PAL DV HD (1440 x 1080) camera and a Popcornhour a110 mediatank
    I can play the capturered m2t files altough not as smootly like my camera does. I think the popcorn a110 can't handle the bitrate?
    Does anybody know what template or render settings i have to use to play my edited films smootly with the highest quality on my a110?


    thanks,
    Ron

    Daaaaaang. I was going to buy a popcorn A-110 this week. With that info...now I just can't. The media tanks are all brilliant but they are missing the all-important GIGABIT port! It's such a huge request by users so inevitably it will be on an upcoming model wither by PH or someone else. I think I'm going to hold out.

    Out of curiosity do you know that the bitrates of your captured files are over the official capacities of the A-110? If not open 'em up in MPC and take a look. Also are you playing them back from a USB drive or a network drive? Maybe the A-110 has less issues playing back from one or the other. Maybe it could also be that the transfer rate between the media and the A-110 is bottlenecking?

    My bro has a WD TV and he sometimes has issues with MKV but NEVER with m2ts files that have even larger bitrates. Just something screwy with the current firmware causing glitches while trying to playback certain file types.

    Thanks,

    Just figured out when rendering with variable bitrate, maxium and average bps set to 18.000.000 The NMT plays (streams) it perfect without any stutter. Maby i can try to set it to 20.000.000 or even higher.
    I do not have a built-in HD but i use an old pentium pc with Freenas server installed. Works great!

    Odd that that above says top field first - pal is lower field first.

    That is going to cause some confusion i would think.
