I have a humax decoder for satellite TV its hard disk is formatted in EXT3 and I have an external USB HD also EXT3. I can, using linux see the files on the USB HD but cannot play them or make a DVD from them. (not protected!)

Any suggestions how to get a program in Linux to play Humax type files would be very much appreciated. The files are .ns, .nts, .htm I think. If I use Dolphin and the ubuntu media player they can see the files but not play them.

for those who see this one I have found an answer.... using linux kubuntu I (in Dolphin) copy the files via the network to a PC machine and then using a sophisticated DVD writer cut the DVD from there.

I tried using the dvd writer in ubuntu but I think there is a formatting problem but thanks to viewer anyway.
