Two part post here, first of all Olcay
has released a new version (beta 4) of his 10-foot MCML DVR-MS editor.
The release is mainly because of a timebomb in the last release, so if you
currently have it installed you should grab the new release if you wish to
continue using it.
On a related topic, it appears that TV Toolbox is able to
edit content recorded from CableCARDs. This
according to a user at The Green Button who says it works for all his
recorded CableCARD content including HBO HD.
I’m personally shocked at this, but don’t have a CableCARD
PC to test it with. It doesn’t output the content in an un-protected
format, but if true this means you could cut commercials out and if not patched
gives hope for an automated commercial skip solution (though my guess is that
would still be a huge undertaking).
I’m not sure why TV Toolbox is able to edit this content,
but I don’t think there is anything specific in the application that would
allow it to work. The developer, Olcay doesn’t even live in the US where
the content originates, so I’m a little confused here.
