How to convert highMAT format to DVD


Hello.

I have a Humax HDPVR-1000C digital cable set-top box. Now I want to transfer some of the shows I had recorded with the box to a DVD. So I copy a movie from the Humax box to an external USB hard drive and then plug the hard drive to my OpenSUSE box. The hard drive now contains three files: one with the extension .hmt, one with the extension .nts and a fairly large file with the extension .ts.

After doing some googling I found out that the .hmt and .nts files are apparently related to Microsoft HighMAT technology. So it seems that the Humax box stores the recordings in M$ HighMAT format.

My question is that how do I fit these files to a DVD that can be played in a DVD player? VLC can play these files just fine, but really would like to burn them on a DVD.

Thanks in advance.

Convert the video to dvd-compatible format, then use an authoring program such as dvd-styler to create dvd from them. vlc can transcode to various formats.

If you're lucky, then an all-in-one converter like tovid or devede may be able to it all for you.
