    I've decided to start backing up all my .ts files as im simply running out of room, and having to delete them. so i have to split them into dvd (4.7gig) files, so around 2-3 discs each movie. how can i play these (when on the hard drive) so they play simulatenously?? I have found wmp classic to be the best player (no stutter) is there anyway to get them cued up in this player??

    also any other hints on backing up .ts files?

    Can't you just queue the files in Winamp?

    well install win dvd 7 and register .ts files to play back in media player 10 and they should play fine, when you stick in your CD, and the autorun window comes up select to "Play in Media PLayer" and away you go..., then just swap the disc for the next one...

    no im using hdtvtompeg to join, thats working fine, i just mean its easier for me to just split it into 4.7gig files then i can watch it once, then burn it. i just need a program that will play the .ts files in order off the hard drive, comprende?!

    Don't use WMP (prefer VLC) but creating a playlist that can be read by WMP isn't that difficult. You'll find the basics in the wmp help file.

    I would suggest to anyone joining tohere ts files together to keep them below 2gb that way they are iso and udf compatible. For example the Jap Linkplayer2 can only handle ISO disks at present and so all my UDF disks with 4.7Gb TS files won't play direct through the player.

    I've been using HDTVtoMPEG2 too, but have heard some people saying that it may degrade the picture quality if i do this - does anyone have a definitive answer?

    (I'm only on a small screen at the moment and won't be able to see any real degradation - don't want to knacker all my stuff when I go big next year!!) :thumbsup:

    Theater Tek will play them, no need to join them up just have them all in the same folder.

    No just keep them as .ts files - there are purely joined not re-encoded.

    There is a command line prompt you can use to join all the .ts files into one big file, But I can't remember what it is!!

    www.altbinarieshdtv.com forums section had it on there, but a search in google will likely produce the same results.

    copy/b *.ts bigfile.ts

    .. should do it, but you're not guaranteed to get the files in the correct order (should do on ntfs though I think).

    Newsbin pro has a nice file joining app builtin too.

    Where did they say they were illegal downloads? They never said where they came from or what they're of.

    Incidentally, HDTV2MPEG is very good just don't convert them to MPEGs, leave them as transport streams as it screws them up sometimes. Media Player Classic is very good for playing them as well :)
