Hi, I have a 0.21 based combined FE/BE but I'm planning to travel soon and
would like to take some recordings with me. I have a windows laptop that I
usually travel with and I'm looking for an easy way to watch recordings.
I figure I could:
a) copy the raw files. but without the mysql DB the files will
have cryptic names so WAF will be very low.
b) mytharchive the recordings to dvd "wasting" a bunch of dvds and battery
life during playback.
c) install linux on my laptop and then a FE & tunerless BE, then copy the DB
& recordings? (this sounds like way too much work!)
Ideally I'd like to have mpg files with easy names and I feel like this
should be possible however I don't have any experience with transcoding
(haven't needed to).
Is that the way to go? Any suggestions, pointers to wikis, etc would be
