So on the recording you can see the video and hear the audio?

I would recommend a laptop from at least this decade and at least Windows 7.

Hi Mike
Laptop 2 a Lenovo T420 same problem. both running windows 7

I then tried the XYLs laptop and it works also got ugly mode working

What is interesting is that on Lenovos when @install~-ursc_asc_winxp is run under windows 7 a DOS window appears then dissapears followed by a beep.

On the newer m/c it said installed sucessfully.

Looks like I need a new computer :(

thanks again

I persevered and it is now working on the lenovo.... SUCESS :)


I had run the Install .... winxp.exe file in the minitioune directory band this worked on the windows 10 machine.

If however you read the installation instructions, it says...
' Installation of usrc.ax Directshow filter
The file usrc.ax must be in the Minitioune directory.
You have also the software: « install_usrc_ax_WinXP.exe »
 If you are working under win XPor Win10 , you have just to run this software in administrator mode.
 If it doesn’t work or you are using an another version of Windows:
o Run GraphStudioNext in administrator mode ( right click …)
o Go to Graph  insert Filter
o You have opened a new window: Filters, you click at the top right on Register
And you link to usrc.ax which is in the Minitioune directory
o Reboot your PC@


(***) Download and installation of GraphStudioNext
go to : https://code.google.com/p/graph-studio-next/
Download the last version.
There is no installation..
This software will allow you to read the .grf files used by Minitioune. These are graphs that show us the structure of decoding and rendering TS data.
This software will help yyou to install easily Directshow filters like usrc.ax


It looks like I was right in that usrc was not being mounted properly when running the winxp install file.
