Only if you have recorded them with nowster's patch in the software, otherwise they are encrypted.
I'm not sure if there is a way of retrospectively decrypting them, but I don't think so.
Did you not read the previous posts in this thread? If they were recorded in HD, unless you had nowster's patch when they were recorded, forget it. They are still encrypted. Nowster's patch decrypts them on the fly while they are recording by means of some magic potion. They will only play back on the Foxsat on which they were recorded.
Thank you very for your reply it is very helpful do you know of any member that has installed the latest Nowsters patch, it seems a good way to go but as yet i have only installed the custom firmware. But that seems to be working OK and have transfured non encryped files across FTP. I dont know how to safely install Nowsters patch so need to get Newbee instructions Please. i will look at the .hmt file with hex editor in the mean while. Thanks again for you help.
I imagine it's very similar to this (for HDR-FOX custom firmware): http://wiki.hummy.tv/wiki/TelnetDo you know how to telnet into the Foxsat-HDR ?
Thanks Guys, have sorted it out i can now record without ENC and FTP accross to Pc without any problems have tested on BBC HD and Channel4 HD. I will keep testing to see if any errors appear. A big thank you to grahamlthompson for all you help.
I didn't say that it is. Just throwing some info in the OP's direction, as he seems to need it.
