    Hi all

    (I'm a newbie to video conversions, so please bear with me

    Just got a HD satellite receiver. It has a model nuber printed infront of it, which is N 8760B. No idea what the brand etc is ? How can I find this out.

    Anyway, I recorded a program from a subscription based channel on a USB disk. It is a .trp format, which my PC doesn't recognize. I have searched Google high and low. Simplest thing I've done as suggested is to rename file extension to .ts
    That didn't help. I am playing it with latest VLC.

    Now as suggested on this website, I downloaded a couple of software and truied to demux? it to something that could be played on the PC.
    First one I tried was ProjectX. Downloaded it, compiled it. It didn't recognize the file type.
    Warning comes up which I have pasted below.

    -> Filetype is unknown
    !> Filetype not supported !

    summary of created media files:
    => 0 bytes written...
    -> we have 1 warnings/errors.


    Then I tried TSRemux. It also gives an error, which I have a screenshot of:

    On a related note, this is the file structure of the USB drive that the info is being recorded to:

    Surely there must be a way of converting this file to .avi or something which I can play on my PC !

    My system is a i7 920, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, 6GB RAM, AMD 6870

    h264ts_cutter => tools => Convert TRP/REC -> TS
    http://www.videohelp.com/tools/H264TS-Cutter

    You may need haali media splitter , ffdshow installed and configured with preferred codec tweaker


    Or use vlc to convert it (since it can play it)

    I should have made myself more clearer. I meant that I am trying to play it with VLC. But it doesn't play

    OK , installed haali, ffdshow.
    After I installed ffdshow, as you said I enabled most of the video codecs. However, I couldn't see any which said '.trp'

    Anyway, after doing all of above, I ran file thru h264ts and this is the message that came up.

    It then asks me to Quit or Continue, but nothing happens.

    Sorry, if I am missing any step in between, please let me know... I am a newbie at all this.

    Thanks

    on windows 7 you need to use preferred filter tweaker as well to enable ffdshow
    (otherwise the microsoft decoder will prevail and will give problems with many programs)

    If that still doesn't work, can you upload a small sample ?

    Also, some streams might be encrypted, this makes it very difficult if not impossible to work around

    OK .. installed the preferred filter tweaker and changed all 32-bit decoders to ffdshow.
    There arent any for 64-bit, which is the WIndows I am running ??

    you can run all 32-bit filter chain on 64-bit os (e.g. 32-bit ffdshow) => this will work for most programs

    if you run 64-bit filter chain, they all have to be 64-bit (ie. you would need a 64-bit version of ffdshow)

    i would leave it as you have it now and try it like that first

    It's missing a sequence header - I don't know of any method to access or convert the data. Maybe someone else knows a workaround

    hmmmm

    Are they embedded in the file itself ?
    Could they be in one of the other files that are on the USB disc ?

  15. The file is probably encrypted. Precisely so you can't do what you're trying to do.

    Yes, reverse engineer the encryption and once you've determined which algorithm was been used set up a bot net to find the key and decrypt the file.
