I am using a airtel dth for past two years and I am experiencing problem here. If I am correct all the set top box would be equipped with a USB hub and I tried to copy some files from pc to pendrive and tried on it but didn't notice any change. How to access the files? What type of files does a set top box can play?
By files you mean recorded TV channels? What format were those files you copied to Pendrive in?SarathKumar ChandrasekaranIf I am correct all the set top box would be equipped with a USB hub and I tried to copy some files from pc to pendrive and tried on it but didn't notice any change.
@Harshad Italiya @Saandeep Sreerambatla : Any ideas about SetTop boxes?
That USB port is meant to set up that STB. But if you ask airtel guys they can tell you some hack to install a laptop HDD inside the STB to play media.
Looks like this question has been left unanswered for quite a long time.
Some set-top boxes (STBs) provide the option to play via USB also called as USB support. You can check on the Airtel DTH box cover if it offers USB support. or It is also called as Plug and Play.
I have a videocon box, but it doesn't provide this option. A Lot of times people get confused because of the USB port on these boxes, because they are mainly there for either one of the two purposes -
1. Recording TV shows in an encrypted format and then playing it again on the TV.
2. Charging the set-top box.
