Ahhhh so much culture and so little time....
Can't you just ftp the files from the location on your HDD to your PC/laptop etc... Thats what i would do.
Hi, I've a Dreambox 600PVR which I have managed to fill up ...
I've a Dreambox 600PVR which I have managed to fill up the hard-drive with late-night recordings [cough!] which I now what to transfer to my PC or laptop.
Is it possible that someone can give me an overview of how to do this?
Thanks in advance.
try dreambox command centre dcc i think that is in the downloads that has an ftp program in it , just setup the ip address of pc and dreambox then it should conect
on one side of the page you will see your pc files and the other is your dreambox
click /media/hdd/movies on your dreambox side and you will see your recordings
then highlight the file you want to send across to your pc to what ever file you like on your pc ,you will see two arrows in the middle for direction to send the files
if you can understand my jiberish

I just use explorer to map a network drive to \\dreambox\Harddisk and then do a copy and paste. No need to FTP anything.
If you plan to ftp off recordings it's worth checking your setup n making sure the max file size for recording is 2 or 4 gig so u end up with just one file per recording.
It's a pain having to join files. I know!
VLC plays the ts files you ftp out perfect.
Once copied across to my pc, I rename the file to .mpg and Media player will play with no problems.
Maybe different for some images but on my Pli image it is Setup > AV & recordings and select the size of the file you would like to create when recording.
Don't ever switch to satellite m8 otherwise you will go blind with all the culture.
If you have a bunch of .ts files you need to concatenate together:
Linux, Mac OS X, etc. (could probably even do it directly on your Dreambox with telnet/SSH provided you have the drive space on the target disk):Code:copy /b *.ts merged.ts
.ts files are just MPEG-2 encoded streams so that's why you can concatenate them and why if you rename the file .mpg it'll get picked up by standard video players.Code:cat *.ts >> merged.ts
One could also use the web interface to download the movile files
