Default Any Problems with Directx9?

I have the aiw 128 pro and so far the highest MMC i can go or find is the 7.2. I have read in some places that the directx9 does not work that well with the VBI pin on the capture when using graphedit. Anyone experience this?

Can anyone setup a CC capture and record TV at the same time using graphedit for CC and MMC for capture?

Thanks

Monitor Playing HDTV inside Windows Internet Explorer

While this is not directly releated to GraphEdit the technique shown here not only allows connecting to a given digital TV source be it ATSC or analog.

Futher, the rendering done allows GraphEdit to connect to the graph produced.

Yes you can use this method to figure out how to build a graph.
Once the content is playing simply start GraphEdit and tell GraphEdit to "connect to remote Graph". Next save the graph.

Exit both programs and now when you load the graph you just created it will play with GraphEdit. You may now add whatever you want to customize your new graph.

Monitor Expanding AUDIO to 5.1

In the following examples we will use the ATI HDTV WONDER to capture HD video and audio.
The filters normally used for watching and playback will be changed to enhance the experience.

Watching HDTV in 5.1

ATI CyberLink filters provided by ATI are "2-channel only".



Changing the filters from CyberLink to the Intervideo filters
Remove the CyberLink audio filter and replace with the Intervideo Audio Decoder and Intervideo Audio Processor.
Set the Intervideo Audio Processor to "6 speakers" if needed, should be set that way by default if you have 5.1 sound system.
Make sure to set the "Intervideo Audio Processor" tab to six channels or you will get no sound at all.

We now have greater control over the audio and DirectSound device shows 6 channel audio now.



Playback media in 5.1
ATI playback is 2 channel only.



With Intervideo we can produce 6 channel audio in the same manner we used for watching content. We will replace the CyberLink audio filters with the Intervideo audio filters.



Add closed caption to playback.

Monitor Recording to DVD Quality MPG with GraphEdit

Recording to DVD Quality MPG with GraphEdit

The following example will record from the ATI HDTV WONDER Anlog input to MPG DVD format using the InterVideo filters.
Intervideo filters come with WinDVD in case you did not know.

If the Preview->VMR9 connection and Audio-Capture->Default_Direct_Sound_Device are removed then you can record in the background even with the user logged out.

The InterVideo filters offer great control over the acutal recording of the video and the results are great as well for analog. For HDTV content you really push the CPU with this setup. The Intervideo video encoder does not hold a candle to the ATI CyberLink ones. But as I said, for Analog content the Intervideo filters are first rate.

Other filters may be used as well. This guide simply is to help you get started.

PLAYBACK: GraphEdit Filter - HDTV WONDER ANALOG/Intervideo Filters


RECORD: GraphEdit Filter - HDTV WONDER HDTV Content (DTV)/Intervideo Filters

Monitor Creating HDTV Player - Getting Started

So you would like to learn how to create your own HDTV tuner for your new ATI HDTV WONDER card but you don't know where to start.

Using GraphEdit is great to learn what filters are and what they can do but you need more, a lot more.

Well you decided to download the Microsoft DirectX 9.0 SDK and still don't know what you need to do.

AmCap is a good start for looking at analog and the sample is provided but you want to create something that will work on HDTV content.

Well there is one great sample to play will in the SDK DirectShow addon. Problem is the project DSW for older versions of Microsoft Visual C++ is not included. If you have an older version of Visual C++ you may need to download the older 9.0 SDK 1st to get the DSW files.

OLD:
C:\DXSDK\Samples\C++\DirectShow\VideoControl\CPP

NEW: (Depends on where you move the DirectShow samples)
C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX 9.0 SDK (February 2005)\Samples\C++\DirectShow\VideoControl\CPP

The dialog is a bit small, lets make it bigger.
1.) Edit CPPVideoControl.cpp and change the main window size.
Code:
HWND hWnd = ::CreateWindow(TEXT("AtlAxWin"), 
                    TEXT("CPPVideoControl.CompositeControl"),
                    NULL,
                    CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT,   // x,y
                    640 /* 300 */, 480 /* 350 */,               // width, height
                    NULL, NULL,             // parent, menu
                    ::GetModuleHandle(NULL), 
                    NULL);
2.) Edit the main dialog. This is easy to do, just click on the "Res" tab and select the only dialog that we have. You can then visually edit the dialog and make it larger.



Now we can compile the program.
Selecting "Build/ReBuildAll" will assure a clean build of this application.

Remember, the channel numbers are the single digit type not the "9-1, 9-2". No sub-channels are supported. But this is a start. You can modify the program as you learn.

Let's see if our new player works.



As in some of the prior examples we can now use GraphEdit to connect to our new program and look at the filters used. Just use run the new application then start GraphEdit and use "connect to remote graph".
Save the Graph and exit GraphEdit and the new application.
Next start GraphEdit and see if it will run. Right click on "Network Provider" and select a station from the "Tuner Request" tab.

http://img65.exs.cx/img65/9723/newgraph0im.jpg

One note here. We did not tell the Microsoft application anything about the ATI HDTV WONDER card. Still the sample application worked and worked well.

This really shows how well ATI followed the Microsoft Digital TV specifications. We really should see a load of programs that support the ATI HDTV Wonder surface since the interface is "by the book".

Any who knows, some who read this may create such a program as well.

In case I have not said it before.

Greg's CopyWrite notice or lack there of. This applies to all my posts herein.

All of my notes may be copied, used, stolen or what ever you want to do with them. You do not have to use my name or anything. If you want to say the information is yours then it is yours.

Default VBI - CC and GraphEdit Questions

There is no issues with using the VBI Pin as far as I know.

While it is easy to render the CC via the VBI pin with the AIW cards and display them as either a seperate video window via VMR-0 or as PIP "picture-in-picture" with VMR-9 there it is a lot harder to process the CC content and mix the result into an MPG file for example.

But that is not even what you want to do. What you are asking for is to use MMC to record at the same time GraphEdit takes the CC content, translates it to ASCII text and saves it to a file. Is this correct?

If so, it can not be done for the following reasons.

1.) Only one instance of the ATI Capture filter may exist. The capture, preview and VBI pins are on this filter. So if MMC is using it GraphEdit can not.
2.) GraphEdit only deals with filters. While the Microsoft "Line-21" filter may be connected to the VBI pin to render the video from the Closed Caption session this filter does not provide a method to convert the "Line 21 Byte Pair" to text.
3.) ATI provides a special CC decoder "ATI Line21 CC Decoder/Renderer" which it appears is used for conversion of "Line 21 Byte Pair" to ASCII text.
The program which is used to connect and attach to the handle of the ATI special filter can read the text from the "Closed Caption Property Page". So in this case a C++ program would be required which connects to this special filter and does the underlining work of processing the text. I could be in error with this one since this filter may simply severe for external rendering anyway. No doc's on the ATI filter that I know of.

If you were thinking of mixing the video from the live capture with the closed caption text this may be possible, problem is I have no idea how to make it work since syncing the two streams and overlaying them during the capture proess would be required. This can be done in code, but I don't know how to do it with GraphEdit.

Simple CC Example - Rendered

Monitor CAT 5.3 - MMC 9.06 - Sound Delay Work-Around

O.K. XBOX users, here is how you can get video feed from you AIW with no sound delay.

Both GraphEdit and AMCap will do the trick.

AIW 9700 PRO - 2-Second Sound Delay


AIW 9700 PRO - No 2-Second Sound Delay
We are able to obtain no delay in sound by disconnecting the sound capture pin from the sound filter.
This works. Sound from the TV across the room is in sync with my AIW card.


AMCap - No 2-Second Sound Delay
AMCap will default to connecting the output sound to MIDI. This is fine as it won't carry the sound via this path.
Once the sound it connected to the input pin as shown below you will have AMCap running with no delay.


Tool Downloads
Even though AMCap and GraphEdit are provided with the DirectX SDK you may download them both from http://www.videohelp.com

Greg,

Have you experimented with HD DVR-MS files produced by HDTV wonder and Windows Media Center? I've used Graphedit with Cyberlink's filters to rip standard "analog tuner" DVR-MS files to MPEG files, but I haven't yet found the right combination of filters to rip and re-multiplex the HD files without audio sync errors. I've been able to convert the HD files with Nero Vision Express, but only by rendering to DVD resolution, and it takes a long time. I figure that Graphedit should be able to do the conversion much faster than real-time, if not re-rendering the MPEG video stream.

Updated. Wow Grog......just wow

Robert Dory, thats a great suggestion for a post. What good is ripping the MPEG video and ac3 audio from DVRMS if you can't encode it sync'd. I'll see if I can come up with something.......and there's more on the way soon.

Monitor Convert MPG2-HD examples

Setup: Record HDTV 720P content with ATI HDTV WONDER card. Export to MPG2-HD format.

What we will do:
We will extract the audio from the HDTV content with GraphEdit and play it with WinDVD and Windows Media Player #10.
We will convert the HDTV MPG2-HD to MPG2 with lower bitrate.
All of the converted items are tested and playback with no sync issues.

The theory behind converting is simple.
We must split the MPEG file to video and audio. Convert what we want and re-mux the video and audio to a single file.
The tick is to find encoder filters which allow us to control the information we need such as format and bitrate.

Let's do it.

Convert ATI HDTV 720P content to AC3 audio file


Play new AC3 audio file


Convert ATI HDTV 720P content to MP3 audio file


Play new MP3 audio file


Convert ATI HDTV 720P content to MPG-2 file with AC3 audio


Play new MPG-2 file with AC3 audio

Monitor Convert MPG2-HD examples - Part2 (DIVX)

Convert MPG2-HD examples - Part2 (DIVX)

Setup: Record HDTV 720P content with ATI HDTV WONDER card. Export to MPG2-HD format.

What we will do:
We will extract the MPG2-HD 720P content stream to Divx format with GraphEdit and play it with ATI MMC Player.
All of the converted items are tested and playback with no sync issues.

The theory behind converting is simple.
We must split the MPEG2-HD file to video and audio. Convert what we want and re-mux the video and audio to a single file.

Let's do it.

Convert ATI HDTV 720P content to Divx 5 format


Check file



Play new Divx file

I have a Sapphire Theatrix Card and would like to use the Theatre 550 Pro Chip to do
some of the work that software would. Is this possible using GraphEdit?
Would I need to have certain drivers/software to accomplish?

I have a TwinHan VP1020A FreeToAir Satellite Card and would like to pass the stream
through the Theatre 550 Pro chip for 3D combing and to output the final MPEG2 DVD quality file. Is this possible? (The video card I have is MSI NX 6600GT VTD128 (NVidia),
it also has VIVO capablities.)

Could GraphEdit also be used for the FM radio that is a part of the Theatrix card?

Thanks for any help rendered.

I'm testing a Sapphire Theatrix in my new rig right now. I just installed it yesterday, and have just installed the DirectX SDK and doing some basic testing of my rig. I'll be posting some graphedit filter graphs shortly, so I'll be able to answer some of your Q's soon.

Default Using Rage Theatre 550

I do like to try things. The thing I noticed is I do not have the Rage Theatre
crossbar device. I believe I would need this in order to use the Theatrix as
a source for filtering/encoding/decoding. Does anybody know how I would get
it to be installed since I already have the ATI drivers installed.

Default All-In-One-Graph?

Looks like you guys are having way too much fun! I'm jealous.

Graph Edit is probably the most powerful Video utility I have ever used. Thanks for all the posts and examples. My girlfriend also thanks you all, for I was able to record her favorite show D-Housewives in its full HD Bloom this weekend.

I am trying to set up a graph that captures OTA HD w/HDTV Wonder, encodes it properly and sends it thru firewire to a JVC DVHS Deck for archive.

Do you think this will be possible with one graph or will I have to capture, encode and then set-up a graph to send to the deck?

Thanks! This forum ROCKS!!!

It looks like the key for successful HD MPEG2 re-muxing is in the intervideo filters. Are these available separately from WinDVD, or do I have to buy WinDVD to get them? Thanks!

Default Sapphire Theatrix: Listen to FM radio

Here's a minimal working graph for listening to FM radio.

Make sure you pick "FM tuner" for tuning mode. I manually typed the FM frequency (replace the first 3 numbers with your FM station frequency numbers <minus the decimal> into the channel box and press "enter" to set the FM station) so it didn't matter that I had "cable" selected for "input" . The Xbar and tuner pins need not be connected, but are needed to change the frequency, tuning mode and connecting the audio in/out pins (to connect the audio pins in the Xbar, pick the audio "output" pin first, then pick the audio tuner-in pin and "apply")

Default Sapphire Theatrix: FM radio WAV capture

Here's a simple graph to capture FM radio broadcast from the Sapphire Theatrix. (Edited to fix incorrect filter graph)

Open up your saved filter graph from listening to FM radio (or build a new one) and add the Cyberlink WAV Dest and file writer filters. (Cyberlink WAV Dest should have installed with Cyberlinks' MakeDVD application that ships with the Theatrix card). You'll probably want to monitor your recording, so you'll need to insert the "tee/sink to sink" splitter like shown (otherwise, just replace the sound renderer with the WAV Dest/file writer)

Default Sapphire Theatrix: Audio format encoding

Here's a working graph using the "Infinite pin tee filter" to split the PCM audio into as many streams as you might need for direct audio encoding to various formats (Vorbis, Flac, WAV, Lame Mp3 in this particular example)

21 sec stereo audio stream in my example produced:
WAV file........3957KB
FlaC..............2593KB
Vorbis............451KB
128kbps MP3...329KB

I spent no effort to play with the codec settings. Using multiple taps makes for a nice way to test your encodings over a variety of settings, or formats at the same time.

Default DVR-MS file playback

Here's a working graph for playing back (analog tuner captures) DVR-MS files using ATI (Cyberlink) A/V decoders. DVR-MS is Microsofts proprietary file format (MPEG audio/MPEG2 video in a ASF wrapper) for Media Center Edition captures.

Default DVR-MS DTV file playback

Here's a working graph for DVR-MS DTV file playback using ATI (Cyberlink) video decoders and ac3 filter audio decoder. DigitalTV DVR-MS are a little different than the analog captures in that ac3 compression is used for the audio stream instead of MPEG audio that is used in the analog files. Microsoft uses the ASF wrapper in the same way.

Default DVR-MS to MPEG2 the easy way (Cyberlink method)

Here's a step by step method to easily strip the MPEG2 file from analog DVR-MS files easily. Using filters installed with CyberLink programs like Power Cinema that ships with Theater 550 cards and letting Graphedit do most of the work, its easy and the resulting file retains the PQ of the original with sync'd A/V.

Step 1: Open Graphedit and go to: Graph(Make sure "Connect Intelligent" is checked) >Insert filters...Expand the DirectShow filters tree and double click on the "Cyberlink Dump Filter" and "Cyberlink MPEG Muxer" filters to put them into your graph. You'll need to pick a file name and location for your file (use the "mpg" file extension) and connect the pins as shown:
(click on thumbnails for larger image)



Step 2: Press CTRL + R and navigate to the DVR-MS file you want to strip the MPEG from (You'll need to use the "All Files" file type to get them to display) as shown:



Step 3: Double-click the file you pick and Graphedit will build the proper filter graph for you to connect to the Cyberlink MPEG Muxer <---sweet as shown:



Nothing left to do but play the filter graph, and then navigate to the directory you picked when naming the Cyberlink Dump Filter and playback your MPEG file! Letting Graphedit build most of the graph in this method is fast and simple as long as you don't have a mess with registered directshow filters.

I'll post similar methods using different filters and formats as well. Good luck

Hey rbV5,

Thanks for the information, I had checked out most of those filters.
The one I might have missed was the ATI multiplexer.
I do not see all the tabs that you do for the property pages that your screen caps are showing.
What version of graphedit are you using? The one that comes with DirectX 9C SDK.
In the case of my PC I have a Video Card with VIVO, what I want to do is pipe the
video out through the Video Card into the Video in of the Sapphire Theatrix.
Can this be done on the same machine. I will be making an attempt at this tonight.
I would like the 550 chip to "VideoSoap" the stream as it gets processed.

If I get it working, I will post the setup.

I'm using Graphedit 5.04.00.2904 Build 040709 IIRC it came with the Feb 2005 DX SDK update. Check out the OP for the fix for the filter property sheets, that may be the issue you are having.

Seems I recall someone doing the video out to video in like you describe, I've never tried it myself. I can't imagine it would be anything but poor for anything but trying to capture gaming or something, and then the best you can do is 480i output using VIVO anyway.

Of course now, I'd like to try it out though...because thats what we do

Good luck!

You know the "Cyberlink MPEG Muxer" is not included with WinXP.
Would be nice to have that filter in WinXP though.
Do you know the name of the ".ax" file used for that filter?

The filter is "MpgMux.ax", it is installed with Cyberlink Power Cinema application that ships with Theater 550 cards, and its also apparently available in the DTV 1.02 from Lifeview LINK If you check the cab file in the DTV distribution, you'll find some useful filters perhaps

Monitor MpgMux.ax in WinXP PRO (The hard way)

The "MpgMux.ax" works but not as well as the Intervideo one under WinXP.

Even so a simple "regsvr32 MpgMux.ax" from the LiveView cab file archive did allow the filter to show up.

In this test case I recorded a PBS HDTV 720P formated show directly to MPG format. No preview mode was used so this is a record only example.





The finished video looked fine and played well. No problem there.
The only thing the filter properties does not look as slick as the MCE2005 version by a long shot. Still it does work well.
