Hi Folks,

I have a Humax HDR-FOX T2. However, I can't transcode the .ts file.

Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit. Nothing too special loaded.

avconv reports "could not find codec parameters".

VLC won't play it.

KDenlive doesn't think it is a valid clip.

I've done a lot of the usual searching, but people are talking above my head. They're also talking about chopping the first 400K off the .ts file as part of a known issue from last October.

If I followed all the advice given, I feel like I could really end up bloating my install with loads of testing; something I want to try and avoid.

If anyone can help me out here, I'd appreciate it.


Edit - VLC won't even tell me any information about the file, and avconf won't tell me either.
