A tab-separated values file is a simple text format for a database table....

Use Handbrake to convert the file to MP4 or some other format your laptop can handle.

Record 1 minute of it and upload it here or on a mediafire type site and I'll have a look at it.

I have never heard of this format.

I presume you tried renaming it to .TS and playing it with VLC.

Also, check the record menu to see if it allows for different formats of recording to be chosen.

Yes, I used handbrake to convert a .tsv created on a Triax Saorview box. I think I may have had to manually change the .tsv extension to .ts for it to work. It was a while ago so I am not 100% sure.

I had tried using the VLC player to no avail. Handbrake was the solution in my case.

VLC wo,nt play them .Renamed them TS etc.I,ve uploaded a file here:http://www.mediafire.com/?m3zibs70wi7ogtr
Maybe someone would have a look at it please?I believe an earlier version of the software in the box allowed these files to be seen on a pc.The TRIAX,XORO and Tower use the same software I,m led to believe.My box which works very well apart from the above problem is a Tower TR HD1700.It would be nice to be able to burn the odd programme to DVD.
Heres hoping some computer whiz can help out.Tried Gomplayer also.

Thanks.

It helps when the title of a post contains as much detail as possible. That way you don't waste time opening threads that are of no interest.

Something like "How to play Saorview .tsv files"

Good luck on boards

The error I get is

Code:
[h264 @ 0x9e424c0] non-existing PPS referenced
[h264 @ 0x9e424c0] non-existing PPS 0 referenced
[h264 @ 0x9e424c0] decode_slice_header error
[h264 @ 0x9e424c0] no frame!
The problem, as I understand it, is that (in the case of streaming) if sps/pps is lost no decoder can decode the H264 video, hence I'm getting the error "non-existing PPS referenced".

Otherwise the file info is ...

Not sure where to go from there ......

Is there an 'index' file stored with the video file? It might be *possible* to use it in conjunction with the video to re-introduce the lost info.

Seems to be the same answer on both ...... the fault is with the saving of the file.

But, if the Triax/XORO/Tower can play the files then surely it must be possible to arrange other software to play them also?

My response in the other thread goes into more detail.

The PCR PID is missing because the receiver has filtered out the PCR.

No software that I know including stream fixing can rebuild a PCR that doesnt exist.

This is a glitch in the firmware of the box(es). It existed on Technisat boxes in the past.

The problem with the Tower is tracking down the OEM and getting them to fix it. In any event people are talking at cross purposes here. Triax software and Tower and Xoro might not be the same. Even if it were then it might be fixed on one but not the other. And again assuming they are the same software, they are probably not interchangable as most software has hardware IDs built in to protect from cloning/interchanging the software.
