A few years ago, this was a simple task. Just mount the disk in an external enclosure in Linux, and copy the .tsp files to the target drive, and reinstall the DVR disk. This was for Dish 625, and some other Dish receiver standard def receivers.
I have a newer 625 now, with an upgraded DVR operating system, and recorded files are placed onto a RAW partition, and can be mounted, but copying is not working.
I pulled the disk, did a dd copy task, mounted it in Windows with MATT Wu's EXT2Fsd app, and Quick Formatted the partition NTFS, then did a file recovery. I recovered 700+ files - none the right size for an entire movie. I think they are all segmented, and possibly demuxed. Plus, the dd copy task froze near the end, so that is also a problem.
Some videos DO play, but they are NOT videos that I've recorded; they're promos.
Any feedback here?
