Hey guys

Today I was trying to play a movie off USB drive through my Strong Freeview decoder, I've noticed that when you record a clip onto USB it saves it as a .TS video format so I tried downloading a .TS clip off the net and playing it through USB on my decoder with not much success. 
I was wondering if it was possible to play a movie that I have put from my computer on to my USB through the decoder?
Any sugguestions??

I know nothing about the Strong Freeview decoder, however, I think the .TS file format can contain a variety of video data formats/variations, its not a specific file format. I guess it would depend on what is actually contained in the .TS file. Like if you downloaded a Freeview recording, then it should work, but if it was something else like a video file from Blu-ray, hard drive recorder or a video camera etc, then it probably wouldn't work if the decoder is only capable or programmed to work with Freeview TV broadcast .TS files.
