Identical units but no file read

Post by collinb »

My 180STB died so I ordered a new one of the same model.
This one won't read the old one's files.
New unit is v13 firmware.
Is there a fix?

Try renaming the file - changing the extension from .mts to .ts extension. This may make the files readable through the 'movie' section. It sounds like a different chipset between the 2 models (7802 vs 7815, perhaps)?

A bit more information would help.

Such as the version of the firmware on the older unit.

If the solution above didn't work (hopefully it did), you could download the files to a PC, run them through avidmux (converting them to MP4 files, then reload them and play them as movies.
