Q: copy files to portable hdd to watch on other HDRs

#1
When I went to my parents at xmas, I copied some files from the playmedialist onto the portable hdd to take and watch whilst there (we both have HDR-T2s). None of the files played on the other machine ('scrambled or not available' message). I did notice that one of the files was HD, so may not have played (should be decrypted though), but the others? I'm sure this should have worked?

notes:
they did work on my machine when we got home and i tested it.
i can't remember how I copied the files: I think it was simply via the media browser... but I do recollect that I could have used the custom software to do a move or copy/paste - in which case this thread could be in the other forum.

All files on the Humax are encrypted, a Remote Control >> OPT+ Copy to USB drive will decrypt standard Def. files but not Hi-Def. files. For High-Def. file you either need to used Foxy (Notes HERE) followed by Remote Control >> OPT+ Copy to USB or the Custom Firmware options (See Notes HERE)

aaah, so if I did do it via the custom firmware, the decryption would not have happened (and according to BH's linky, ftp transfer is the same). Gotta use the proper method.
I do have the decryption add-on to the CF, so copy-to-usb should (in theory) work.
Thanks!

For all Custom Firmware methods of decryption take a look the flow chart on the WiKi HERE. FTP with or without Custom Firmware won't remove decryption on it's own you nedd the other steps detailed in the flow chart
