The Humax iCord HD is a Sat receiver and recorder with a nice feature set. It records digital video directly in .ts files. With newer software version, the iCord HD supports FTP access to its file system. If you copy a .ts file to your pc, you can play it using VLC. However, my favorite video cutting program, VideoRedo Plus does not support Humax .ts files directly.
Use this procedure to copy, convert and cut .ts files to standard format without loss of information.
