DGTEC PVR Formats

Does anyone know how to format files so that they can be read on a DGTEC PVR. Files seem to be in 1GB blocks, the first one with a .mts extension, with following ones .001, .002 etc. VideoReDo can convert files recorded on the PVR to MPEG format, but not vica versa.

The MTS extension is a transport stream. If you save files as transport streams, rename the extension from ts to mts and try that.

PVR rec file formats

I tried copying .ts formated files to my DGTEC PVR but it just locks up when I try to plan them. I notice some similar discussion re loading edited files back to the Topfield PVR's, and that VideoReDo will soon be able to output files that can be read by these machines. Any chance this will also happen for DGTEC PVR's?

Load a small example of the source file to our FTP site and we will take a look at it.

Thanks, that would be good, but I am not sure if I know how to load a file to your ftp site.

Use the VideoReDo Tools>Trim and Copy to make a short (10-20mb) clip of your source file. Or simply record a very short clip on your PVR.

Below are uploading instructions:

Thanks - but my knowledge in that area is a bit light. I've setup a network place for your ftp but can't copy to it. Maybe I am not doing it right. What do I need to do this end to download the file.

If you are using Internet Explorer, you may need to use Passive FTP.

In Internet Explorer click on the menu: Tool>Internet Options
Select the Advanced tab and check "Use Passive FTP"

I am still having trouble uploading this file. I can view the ftp site & directory, but how do I get to the point to log on, in order to upload the file.

If you're viewing the directory, it sounds like you're there. Have you tried to create a folder to place your files?

I can open it in windows explorer, but when I select file; new, I only get the option to open a new window, not create a new folder as with other folders. I thought it might be McAfee, but I have disbled that.

Don't worry about creating a folder. Simply open the FTP site in windows explorer and drag the file you want to transfer into that window. When its done, please email us at support@videoredo.com with the file name.

I have been trying to do that, but I get the circle with the line through it when I drag the file to the ftp folder, or any file name in that folder.
Thanks for all the help, but either I'm doing something wrong or some issue with my computer's settings.
Maybe I'll just copy it to a cd and mail it to you, if that's ok.

I suggest that you try a different FTP tool, such as the free FileZilla - it handles passive FTP transfers very well.

Or send the CD with the files on it to us and we'll upload it for you.

You'll probably want the start 30MB, and end 30MB of a .mts file, along with the start 30MB of a .001 file from the same recording (just in case something strange is happening when the DVR splits the files).

What browser do you use? I couldn't upload with Firefox or Firebird (not this site) but IE worked when I switched one time. (normally I never use IE)

We've now received and uploaded the samples on behalf of bp3, and emailed support with the details.
Much appreciated. I'll await some feedback re compatibility with VideReDo output formats.
