Hi i have a 2GB usb stick witch i formatted to fat32, put 1GB of video on but the green button on the humax will not high light so i can copy, I have used the same stick to put loads of photos on with no problems, can any one help please.
Not sure if this will help you but I remember getting stuck at the same point when I first tried to copy some files.
After you have opened the file manager, on the right hand side menu you should have the USB drive.
You need to highlight the root of the USB drive and press OK. At this point you should be able to see the contents of the USB drive and the copy button will go green when you have selected the file you want to copy from the HD.
Just had a go as to your suggestion and have noticed that usb say's 47% ( see attachment 001) but when you click over to it appears to be empty (see 002 ) So i'm at a loss to what has happened as the usb plays fine on my PC, as you can see I'm useless on the pc so any suggestions are gratefully received
You have a folder called rio with no video contents in it that the hdr can recognise. With the Drive icon with two dots (this indicates you go up one level if you click on it, in this case back to the drive icon.)
Copying any file in this case goes to the root folder, if you click on Rio to open it then copies will go into that folder
What files appear in rio if the folder is opened on a PC ?
To appear as a recording in File Manager, three files with the same name with extensions, .hmt, .nts and .ts are required
The footage is DV compressed in a .avi container. To view on the hdr it needs to be converted to a mpeg2 compressed transport stream file and the two support files required building with a programme called AV2HDR.
There's lots of ways to do this basically you need software that you would use to create a DVD from the footage.
Tommorow I will find some SD footage from my DV camcorder and upload an example.
It's correct, this one has the actual video information in. It's an illustration of just how much more efficent mpeg4 is over mpeg2. The same file with HD 1080i h264(mpeg4) is about twice as big despite having around 3 times as much video data.
The DV compression used by your camcorder uses around 4GB for just 20 mins of video.
Of you want to see the HD version I can upload that as well if you wish.
