Hi All,

I have tried this program on our foxtel IQ boxes here but am having issues..

the tool can read and extra the .str files, but thinks it coverts them properly, but i can't play the mpeg files, has anyone got it working on foxtel iq drives?

First thing is I'm pretty sure that the Foxtel IQ network encrypt their recordings so you won't be able to convert them to playable MPEG2 files.

When you fire up +Extract, what colour are the icons beside the recordings? Green = clear, Red = Encrypted and Orange = undetermined.

If the recordings are clear then try using ProjectX to convert the .STR extracted files. If ProjectX complains about not finding 'sequence_header' then the recording is definitely encrypted.

I'm having the same issue. Every programme on my disk is encrypted! Is there any way to decrypt the stream files outside of the Sky decoder?
