  2. And they are encrypted and can only be played on the TV that recorded them.

  4. If this files are encrypted there is nothing we can do about it, but if they are not, you need to use tools like avisynth + LSMASHSource to open it, also make sure you set your explorer to see file extensions:
    https://fileinfo.com/help/windows_10_show_file_extensions

    Code:
    video=LWLibavVideoSource("D:\.2019 Nov 22_2319_0.str")
    audio=LWLibavAudioSource("D:\.2019 Nov 22_2319_0.str")
    AudioDub(video, audio)
    Either you can use virtualdub2 to process it if you know what to do or use handbrake, a user friendly converter to convert to any other video format you want.

    can you tell me then how do i use avisynth and LSMASHSource and virtualdub2 then i just need a program that opens theses files and converts them to any video format

    what i dont under stand is that my old tv which was a TOSHIBA 48U7653DB SMART TV that one recorded the programs with the bulit in freeview to usb stick and then when i plug the usb stick into the computer it had 1 video file and it was a mpeg 2 video file and i was able to convert it to any video file but my old tv stopped working a few months ago
    my old tv i am not sure when that was made

    so this is why i bought a new smart tv a LG 49UM7400PLB cos that was made 2019 also it has usb recording like my old tv but the thing i like the most about this tv lg tv is that it has freesat and freeview 2 tuners but when i record with this tv the files are all split up in different parts like in the image above in my last message
    and the computer will not recognize any of theses files

    so if i cant find a software that does this and if nobody knows of a way that will convert theses files to 1 video file then i will just take the tv back to the shop i bought it from then
    and get a different make then i was thinking about buying a Samsung UE49RU8000UXXU Smart 4K HDR LED TV cos that tv also has freesat and freeview and it does have usb recording but i cant find anything on the internet what video file it saves as on a usb stick

    my old tv a TOSHIBA 48U7653DB saved the video file as 1 mpeg 2 video file and i was able to convert it to another video file

    but the lg tv my new one is quiet a messy one to deal with cos it spilts the files into a weird format that the computer does not recognize

    so can anyone help me with this problem will i be able to convert theses video files to another format or should i take back the lg tv back to the shop i got it from

    what i am after is a smart tv that has freesat and freeview 2 tuners and does usb recording and records as 1 video file to the usb stick and i am able to convert it with the computer

    so does anyone know of any smart tvs where it records as 1 video file to usb stick and you are able to convert it through the computer

    I don't think anybody can help you. Although several years have passed since problems like yours were first reported, nobody has come forward to post about a decryption method for the recordings made by any TVs to make it possible for any other device, including a computer, to play them.

    Based on what I have seen here at VideoHelp, all of the TVs that can record DTV broadcasts on USB drives appear to encrypt their recordings to prevent them from being played by any device other than the individual TV that made them. If one reads the manual for these TVs, this limitation is clearly stated.

    [Edit] The e-Manual (ver 3.0.0) for the Samsung UE49RU8000UXXU says the following under "Recording Issues": "The recorded files on the TV can only be played back on the same TV. Those video files cannot be played back on a PC or other TV."
