Extracting vids from DVR hd by cp task...


I tried moving my vids off of the DVR HD same way I used to when I had Dish before, but no more. Not by GUI anyway...

So I tried CLI, and did a device copy task cp /dev/sde /dev/sdd. Target disk is much bigger by far, so no problem there...

After about 40 minutes, it froze up. I re-booted, unmounted, and checked the target disk. It has 103 gig's worth of files, a bunch of .tsp files on one partition (these are the target vids), and some even play, but they're promos and stuff; NOT my recorded vids. And only one .tsp is the right size for a movie.

What could stop the cp task?
Is this more than just a codec problem?

I strongly doubt that's the right way to do things. Find the filesystem of /dev/sde, mount it properly, then copy data or use DVB tools like DVB Replex to convert TS to PS.

Without stderr/dmesg/syslog that'll be impossible to tell.
