No pid error when opening a ts radio file

I've just tried to open a ts file recorded from UK freeview radio so I could save the audio stream but vrd just says no pid found and I can't do anything with the file. Is there any way of working out what's wrong? It was recorded with npvr and looking at the filesize it is a similar size to a normal tv program.
 
Use MediaInfo to see if there is a video stream. If there is no video stream then you are hosed because it has been identified that VRD needs both video and audio streams to open.

Does it play on VLC?

Another thing to try is Tools | Options check Ignore transport stream maps.

As Flobbydust mentioned VideoReDo requires a video stream to open a file. If you file is audio only then you should try an audio only editor like AudioGrabber.

Sticky Suggestion

Dan there appears to be a re-occuring theme with VRD opening video files. Perhaps a ''sticky'' posted in this thread could be made to include some resolutions with reasons.

Two common issues keep pooping up lately with audio only video files and the transport stream maps. Just a suggestion.

I'd go with that suggestion, played around yesterday with a few things but haven't got anything working yet with a command line.
Anyone know of a no nonsense command line program that can take an audio only TS file and spit the audio out as the raw MP2 data stream?

I don't know command line syntax, but tsMuxer comes with a GUI, just drag and drop your TS file in, select demux, select an output folder, and click demux.

Not command line (though it may support it), but certainly no-nonsense.

I've found a program - PVAStrumento with a GUI and Command Line that works, basically run the GUI, use it to write a profile, then run the profile using the separate command line program. The file always has to be the same name and path so I rename it in the batch file first.
