Correction to Download Standard Def. file without USB Copy

    My plot to copy video files from HDR to PC continues, despite all attempts to frustrate my plans...


    "In the cmd.exe window go to the WGET directory with cd C:/wget/bin..."

    This should read:

    "In the cmd.exe window go to the WGET directory with cd C:\wget\bin..."

    [ie backslash not forward slash]

    I have corrected the 'slashes' in the Wiki, although I'm not sure that was the problem as 'cd C:/wget/bin' is acceptable in DOS CMD windows

    Why are you having difficulty LDW?

    Because I'm a chump. But - as John Lennon said so memorably - I'm not the only one.

    Not in mine it ain't.

    I agree backslashes are the norm for DOS/Windows, they would be forward slashes in unixy systems.

    Downloading the file should just be a case of clicking the OPT+ download option in the WebIF. If your PC browser is configured to play the file instead of saving it (I get that trouble), THIS TOPIC (click) tells you how to do it.

    I think you mean DOS\Windows, don't you?

    It does as long as the directories exist, I'm guessing in your example they don't

    I know I'm an ass, but not THAT big an ass.

    This is intriguing. You both appear to be using XP and yet get different results.

    Ah. The wonderful world of Mr Gates.

    Sometimes I miss my old ZX Spectrum. You knew where you were with a computer that couldn't do anything...

    OK chaps, here's my story.


    i) downloaded the CF. Straightforward, comprehensible even to me, and excellent.

    ii) copied a file using OPT+ download option in the WebIf. This TS file wouldn't play, so I concluded it hadn't decoded itself.

    iii) copied a file with WGET. This worked well.

    iv) loaded the file into Roxio (I know, I know).

    v) went to make a DVD. 12 hours later, still only on 60%...

    I've got a 32Gb flash drive on order. Meantime, I'm going back to see if I can't just link up a DVD recorder to the HDR. Neither one seems to have an HDMI input, so I suppose it's back to SCART. Perhaps I'll get out my ZX Spectrum as well.

    Or is there something glaringly obvious that I'm missing?

    Is this a StDef or HiDef? You're onto a hiding to nothing if HiDef.

    If it was StDef your WebIF download should have been playable, but no different to wget. To make a DVD copy I start with StDef, then it is auto-decrypted, and then I extract to MPG using the WebIF (my editor won't take a TS).

    Copy the MPG to PC and load it up in Serif MoviePlus, top & tail it as required, add another MPG and a menu (if required), then export to DVD.

    I'm sure that's not the only work-flow, but it works for me and the kit\tools I have to hand.

    I think they said they have a plinth ready! I guess I ought to have a rummage in my junk pile before I go (read that any way you want).

    I think the step you're missing is that Content Sharing must be turned on in the Humax menus (Menu >> Settings >> System >> Internet Settings)

    It is/was.

    But the bit I was missing seems to be using the right player. VLC works fine. Mr Gates's fine product didn't.

    Oooh! That sounds like what I need. Where is that? When I right-click OPT+ in the WebIf and select DOWNLOAD I only get the option of a TS file.

    Splash Lite has proved quite a popular player, extract to MPG HERE (greyed out )

    It can't _just_ be my stupidity, can it? Why doesn't mine look like yours? As the actress said...
