Muxing tools for high definition program streams

we just start experimenting with a HD2000 with actual firmware.

We use Premiere Pro CS3 for encoding and muxing.

We have a problem creating working HD Program Streams above 9Mbps because of the limited datarate of DVD Program streams.

Under 9Mbps the files are working fine (Audio and Video). Above 9Mbps Premiere dont allow to mux because of exceeding the Datarate for DVD

When using MPEG Program streams (instead of DVD Program streams) in Premiere muxing dialog we can use higher bitrates but dont hear Audio.

Is there a good muxing tool (PC-based) that can be used to create valid Program Streams (HD Video with audio above 9mbps) for the HD2000?

    There is a great utility from Womble that muxes very well. Womble has a PC Utility called Mpeg2VCR.

    You can download it and try it out. It comes with a 30-day free trial. It's $35 to purchase. It has a batch processing mode.

    I've personally used it to mux video up to 23Mbps for the HD2000.

    I've also heard Transmux is a good PC utility. One of our customers that does their content authoring primarily on the mac, uses this tool for muxing audio and video on the pc to create their final video.

    I'ms sure there are many other programs available, but those are the first two that come to mind.

    Hi Lyndon,

    thanks for your fast support.

    I downloaded the trial and it works great with my files!
