Latest Version of TS-Doctor

On a german Board for a media player called "Popcorn Hour" I (ararat/khan) found a useful tool that is still free, but may perhaps some day become commercial. It´s called TS-Doctor and I consider it recommendable for all SAT/Cable viewers who do recordings with their devices.

I therefore translated the (until yesterday) only existing german manual into English, because I thought this useful for SAT-Universe members and in addition sent it to the author (Cypheros) who will imply it (I attach his revised version to this post) in the next release of his software. He allowed me to post about his tool, TS-Doctor, and his website, when I asked him to.

Note: The TS-Doctor GUI could be set to English language already before, but the menu item "Help/Manual" didn´t work, because the program couldn´t find a .pdf file called "manual.pdf" in TS-Doctor´s program folder. Copied there manually it works from within the software. (Only necessary for version Beta 0.95 or earlier)


So, what does the tool do?

Before I might forget it: In its tools section TS-Doctor amongst other tools supplies you with an excellent FILE MERGER that even handles overleaping transport stream chunks like the difficult ones of Comag SL 100 HD recordings.(much better than using Windows´"copy /b *.ts combined.ts").

The main program itself corrects (e.g. color space) cleans and to some degree repairs your recordings - (read manual.pdf). In addidion it eliminates useless streams (Teletext and others - you can choose to keep them, though), thus creating files of less size that play well on media players (or DVD/Mini-Bluray if you remux them with TS4NP or TSRemux).

Dreambox users
can patch DVB streams that afterwards can be played back with the dreambox. Beginning an End of a recording can be trimmed within a preview window.

The cutting/preview function works very precisely (If you don´t need to cut in the middle of a recording: better than h264tscutter).

This tool nearly does ALL IN ONE (except remuxing).

Set it to English language with <<< EINSTELLUNGEN/OPTIONEN/ALLGEMEIN-Sprache (Choose "Englisch")/ OK ****>



The latest version and more interesting DVB stuff you can download from
The page is available only in german at the moment. (You will find the link in manual.pdf as well- if server deletes link in my post)

Additional remark: I tried several tools up to now - h264cutter, TS-Converter with HDTV Pump Filter, TSRemux, TS4Np, Nero, etc. - none of them is useless but none of them leads to comparable results.

TS-Doctor works without quality loss. TS-Doctor does more than the above mentioned tools:


Cypheros TS-Doctor ist meant to analyze recorded DVB transport streams for errors and to make faulty DVB streams compatible in a way that a flawless playback without surgeing or video and audio delay is being achieved.

In some cases it helped me to open and correct corrupted DVB transport stream files (.TRP), where even TSRemux/TS4Np had to give up.


The program tries to keep the original stream as untouched as possible in order not to create additional incompatibilities.

PAT und PMT are being corrected and not existing PIDs deleted out of the system tables. Useful video and audio streams are being displayed (with properties), useless streams are being deleted during clearing process (if you don´t choose to preserve them)
The program possesses a detailed examination function for MPEG2 and H264 video streams
(up to 1920 x 1080p) as well as AC3 audio streams by means of CRC-check.


  • Supports (DVB-Viewer, ProgDVB, Dreambox, Dbox2, Technisat, etc.) .TS streams!
  • Supports Kathrein TRP- streams!
  • Corrects faulty video_full_range_flags (Colorspace) of DVB-streams!
  • Visual cutting function for beginning and end of streams!
  • Supports iCord HD M2TS and Technisat TS4 - streams!
  • New: Packet-Editor and Stream-Filter Tool
  • Supports Comag SL 100 HD DVR-Streams!
  • Merges DVB streams correctly (File Merger)
  • Detects more useless streams than TSRemux/TS4Np (= smaller filesize, if needed)
  • Wrong language descriptor of audio streams can be changed

You should give it a try.

Latest Version of Cypheros TS-Doctor!

Cypheros TS-Doctor repairs, cuts and merges your HDTV/SDTV
(.trp / .ts / .ts4 /.m2ts / .dvr/ .rec) DVB recordings.

TS-Doctor is Trialware. This is on purpose, because Cypheros wants users to always download the latest releases for testing. He also needs users feedback to improve his software or implement support for new receivers.

I won´t load up the software here - otherwise Sat-Universe Mods will close this thread and move it somewhere else (e.g. "dreambox tools" section).
SU-Mods/Admins please keep this thread untouched here in Public Sat Upload. The software discussed in this thread is designed for many DVB receivers and not only for one brand.

Additional info that you won´t find on Cypheros wepage:

Although TSDoctor Beta has a 30 day trial limit you will be able to fully use it until the end of this year! (The countdown timer in the software is more a kind of a reminder to always look for and download latest version.)

As long as TS-Doctor is Beta (even versions higher than 1.0) the software will stay free.

Cypheros hasn´t yet determined if later "full releases" of his software will be Freeware, Shareware, Open-Source-Software or Donationware.

Version 0.99 of TS Doctor is out today!!!
Release info:

0.99 - Audio messages for completion of the processing
- Correct detection of AC3 5.1 recordings even if the stream beginns with AC3 2.0
- Graphic timeline in cutting preview
- Better finding of a valid stream start for spcial M2TS (192 Byte) files (Topfield SRP-2100)
- Support for Topfield REC recordings
- Division by zero problem solved in cutting window, if cutting is done without preview (turned off or codec problems)
- Current version of the Haali Media Splitter optional installable
- Single file installation (Exe file instead of msi as before)

TS-Doctor 0.99.2 for x64 operating systems

On h**p://w*w.cypheros.de/dvb_e.html" (SU-Admins always remove my links)

you can download a new release of TS-Doctor for XP/Vista/Win7
especially for 64 bit operating systems.

There´s not yet a solution for installation and use of TS-Doctor_Eng.exe (version 0.99) under WINE.
Earlier (.msi) versions will do fine, though.
