Hi,My Satellite receiver records channels in a folder called Pvr and there usually is:
000.mpg file (which is video data.)
000.tps (64 KB)
info3.tps (32 KB)
Then, I thought the two ts files are junk files and there's no need to keep them so I deleted them overtime and now after a week, recording and copying my records on my Hard, I was gonna play them on my satellite receiver and I realised when the receiver scans my flash drive, it deletes the mpg file because it can't play them without the ts files.
as you may have guessed, I couldn't recover the TS files because I used my flash drive a lot and wrote and deleted files on it.
So what are these and TPS files? can I create them manually with notepad or something?
How can I get my receiver to play them??
if you have any idea please share 'em with me.
thanks a lot!
Edit: I had a bad time reading the format of those files and the 2 files are both TPS files not TS files, and I don't even know if there's a difference between the two.
Okay, Sorry for making this complicated, I myself am really confused

Try the free "minitool power data recovery" which is highly recommended before you pay scammers in this recovery data industry.Author, Producer, Composer, Director - Sony HDV, Konica SLR, LG BD burner

I can't possibly do that, my data is overwritten and I formatted my USB Drive using option replace every bit with zero (on ubuntu).So any thoughts about these TSP files?
Did you actually ever try googling .tps files?
Apparently they're a database the pvr system uses to keep track of the files it stores. That's not something you can just recreate with a simple text editor like notpad, not least because they wouldn't need to be text files anyway.
Never ever delete small "junk files" if you don't know exactly what they are. Especially in linux. You're just asking for a borked OS.
You can't recover overwritten data, and it's been overwritten multiple times from what you're saying. Sorry, you're out of luck.
Have you tried just copying over tps files from another recording? The metadata will be wrong of course, but it might be enough to let you view the videos. If that works you might be able to use a hex editor to change the metadata.
yes, I tried copying the tps files in the folders but my receiver deletes the tps files and the mpg files right after I connect my USB!Thank you for your replies.
Please let me know if you find anything else.
All that's left that I can think of is to compare the tps files from different recordings with a hex editor. Maybe you'll figure out what's different between them then copy/recreate tps files for your missing ones.
Are you sure the problem is the missing tps files? Maybe your PVR will only playback recordings on the same media they were recorded on. Ie, they're encrypted and the key is on the media. That is very common.
