Good idea. It would have to be an action on a decrypted file where the .nts is empty. The sidecars could just be stripped rather than moved, but could go to the recycle bin if undelete
For anyone unaware of the context, when new HiDef services were introduced users reported problems recording BBC3HD, BBC4HD, and CbeebiesHD. Specifically, some recordings produced an empty .nts sidecar file, and although the .ts file contained the complete recording the Humax media browser reported it as a zero length recording and refused to play it.
Decrypting the recording and then deleting the .nts and .hmt files renders the recording playable (albeit without trick play, bookmarking etc), and this badnts
package is designed to detect these faulty recordings and automatically patch them up by deleting the sidecar files.
To use it, recordings must first be decrypted using one of the WebIF auto options (these are not available on an HD-FOX, even in HDR Mode). Immediately a recording is decrypted, the .nts state will be detected and then acted on if necessary. Existing decrypted faulty recordings will not be processed. Recordings decrypted on demand (WebIF "Decrypt" option) will not be processed. Recordings decrypted using the unencrypt
package will not be processed.
