    Summary: Record as .m2ts file.

    Description: I live in New Zealand (along with 4 million other people) and here (as well as Norway or some other scandinavian country) we have MPEG-4 based digital television with AAC-HE sound. Unfortunately this means that when our television streams are encapsulated in .ts files, the sound does not work when you try and play them on the PS3. There is however an easy solution, convert them to .m2ts files.

    If there was another option in the recording section of the MediaPortal Server settings, a .m2ts option, this would solve the problem.

    As .m2ts and .ts are very similar, and there are programs that already exist such as tsremux, I imagine this would be quite easy to implement for someone of sound skill.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not possinble for few reasons:

    1) MediaPortal build in TV engine development has stopped
    2) Old tv engine uses MS Stream Buffer Engine and its not supporting anything other than DVR-MS file format
