I've just upgraded from an aging foxsat box that I was pleased with to an Hdr-1100s 1tb due mainly to loss of BBC iplayer in September. Foxsat box has some classic tv in memory that I would like to keep. Anybody know if this can be transferred to new box or an external computer hard drive before I dump the box? I'm a bit of a technophobe so please keep replies "simple to understand". Thanks

Hi welcome to our forum. You can copy SD recordings to a usb drive and play them back on a 1100S from the usb device or upload them to the 1100s internal drive. You only need the .ts (transport stream) files. You can copy HD to usb but due to encryption you can only play them back on the Foxsat that recorded them. THe USB drive will need to be formatted FAT32 (Max file size 4GB) or EXT3 for larger files. If SD they will be less than 4GB unless it's a very long programme.Mon 17 Oct 2016 21:20:58 #2 |
Thanks for your response. I did say I was a bit of a technophobe! How do I do this to a usb? You've already lost me. I don't believe I have anything saved that is HD..... it took up to much memory on the foxsat.Tue 18 Oct 2016 19:22:23 #3 |

It's been a while. I will format a usb stick fat32 tomorrow and go through the steps to copy a single file and a complete folder from a Foxsat-hdr. To format a usb stick in windows, right click on it and choose format. Select FAT32 as the file system.Tue 18 Oct 2016 20:58:18 #4 |
