ReplayPC - Watching TV not only WHEN you want, but WHERE you want!

ReplayPC is A simple text mode utility for extracting mpg files from ReplayTV Personal Video Recorders via TCP/IP. The ReplayPC utility is Win32 native, but is being developed with an eye for easy porting to *nix operating systems.

If you would like to contribute to the ReplayPC project, contact We will get you setup with a SourceForge account, and Project ReplayPC membership.

The Mac OS-X .sit archive was updated by Randy Saunders. The archive now contains a readme file with basic compiling and installation directions. Thanks Randy!

The .sit Mac OS-X archive with a prebuilt OS-X binary should appear within the hour.

ReplayPC V0.3 has been released. Windows zip and Linux gziped tar files should appear within the hour. The Linux version does sucesfully compile under OS-X if you "make CXX=c++" V0.3 fixes the dreaded guide file bug, and adds a new option to pipe fetched files to stdout. The mpg fixup code has been removed, it turns out that 4K mpg files don't need fixed, and this removes the need for the -er extract raw option.

ReplayPC V0.3 is nearing release with planned support for Windows, Linux, BSD, and Mac OS-X, all from the same source! A new -o option allows fetching files from the ReplayTV, and piping them into other applications in real time. One of our crack ninja programmers (the one who developed the -o option) has all ready used this new feature to "stream" mpeg data directly from a ReplayTV to a mpeg viewer application on his Redhat Linux box. V0.3 is being tested now, and if all goes well, this should be a good weekend indeed!

this stuff is getting really cool...
Well, yesterday I found out just how cool my Replay4K is. I've been watching this thread closely and was really impressed by the progress. Until yesterday I never had a reason to give any of these tools a try. Here's whatI did:

1. Downloaded latest version of ReplayPC and GuideParser.
2. Copied a bunch of episodes of "Enterprise" to my PC.
3. Compressed them to MPEG1 with TMPGenc.
4. Performed "manual commercial advance" with Womble.
5. Burned them to VCDs.
6. Gave the discs to my dad so he could catch up on the series before new episodes started. He just popped them in his DVD player and they worked!
