Hmm...the .ts is a new one for me. From what I read, it appears to be a 'stream container' (transport stream or ".TS"), wrapped around an MPEG file.

Try to convert the .WMV to an MPEG2 file (you appear to be comfortable with ffmpeg, so I'm not going there.. ), then try this:

Code:
mencoder -of mpeg -ovc copy -oac copy -o BMW.mpg BMW.ts
That'll just put a 'wrapper' around the stream, and does no encoding. Give it a shot....

I would also be interested to know if that did work.

The codec used for a wmv container will be wrong. You are trying to copy the video stream as is to an mpeg container.
There is no .ts format extension listed in "ffmpeg -formats". What is dm hdd?

According to this web site, .ts is for mpeg2 transport streams. So use "-vcodec mpeg2video -f mpegts". If using -y BMW.ts doesn't work, you may need to use BMW.mpg and rename it afterwards. Look on the site's instructions on the bit rates they accept.

---

Using Google I found out that you are talking about a PVR. I was thinking it was a web site you were uploading to.
You may be able to send mpeg files. I don't know where the .ts extension comes from. The spec sheet I read says it will play mpeg2 and mp4 files.

You may also want to resize and pad the video so it is a legal 16/9 format. If you use the "-aspect 16:9" argument, ffmpeg may adjust the pixel aspect ratio. Maybe this would be enough.

And I recommend against advertising in the forums against rules. And that's a Mac and Windows-only product, so posting it here does nothing to help the original poster with their question.

Thread reported.

I don't think any "containing" is involved. "Dreambox" is used as a sort of a generic term within the DVB FTA satellite community. All three of my satellite receivers record files with a .ts suffix. Some can be played directly by VLC or SMplayer, while others can't without first migrating them into a common container format.
