Bit of a sneaky two question ask here, but...
How are people playing freeview sat .ts files on computer?
I believe it's standard mpeg2/DVD stuff and I'd like to play it in standard Windows Media player.
I have a set top box that records to external fat32 hard drive and I'd like to know if I can just unplug the drive and copy the file off onto a laptop to view there. Is it as easy as this?
If it's Mpeg2, can this be authored to DVD easily or does it need some form of prior conversion being in .ts format, or is it as simple as a extension name change to .mpg or something.
And finally, is there such a thing as a masthead amp type alternative for sat signals? I know there are those cheap inline amps but can you get something more substantial for boosting a weaker sat signal or is what you get off the dish what you get. Thinking to boost up weaker SBS signals or similar for instance.
(I guess this may be self explanatory, ie no, given you use power on that same line already to power the lnb etc, where as terrestrial normally doesn't power the antenna line.)
