Are you still watching this thread? I answered your #9 in my last post and would like to know what you think of that answer (especially wrt "re c)").
In my parallel thread "Topfield output (rec file) no longer usable as Topfield input after VRD processing" I reported a successful solution to the problem by changing my output files after VRD processing in the save dialog in accordance with the pdf file attached there.
The same procedings in the HD-S2 case have not succeeded. What else can I do here? Where is the significant difference between the ts and the rec case? Is it simply because the developers have invested some additional effort in the rec processing?

From a google search of the technisat HD-S2 it appears that the files off this box are encrypted.
If this is the case, VRD cannot help you as it can't decrypt the file.
I can't find a post anywhere of anybody successfully editing a file from this box.
You could try searching the technisat HD-S2 on German forums may produce more information

@pippus, have you uploaded a sample of the technisat HD-S2 for us to check out? If there's no PAT/PMT in the file, then perhaps that's what the technisat is expecting in which case we don't have an option to create TS files in that format as it's not typically a valid format for any standard device.

If you are German, you should have a look on this site http://www.technisat.de/index16fb.html?nav=H%C3_ufig_gestellte_Fragen,de,9 2&kid=58#381 esp. FAQ # 4 , 8 and 12 - otherwise Google translator can probably help you to understand.
Topfield *.rec files are mpg2 with a prefixed special header, according to answer #4 *.ts files from Technisat presuppose *.mks marker files for retransfer.

technisat HD-S2 output (ts file) no longer usable as HD-S2 input after VRD processing
Thank you for referring me to these FAQ. I usually prefer to seek advice in forums rather than in technisat guidance material, which (the latter) in general I find less useful. But in this special case the statements about the mks files convinced me that VideoReDo programmers would hardly like to engage in making mks files work with respect to playing back technisat ts files after VideoReDo processing.
But the Technisat FAQ create the wrong impression that it was not possible to export HD-S2 files for processing by software like VRD and import it back thereafter to HD-S2 for playback on the TV. If I save the VRD results as mpg I can definitely play them back successfully on my HD-S2. The only reason why I created this thread was that I was convinced that it should be possible to re-import successfully a technisat ts file as such after VRD processing.
There is another piece of misinformation in the said FAQ, which does however not concern VRD but which may be of interest to readers of this thread. It is the statement (in a Google translation): “Movie files that do not originate from the DigiCorder can not be played on the DigiCorder or read to the hard disk of the DigiCorder…”
I can very well cut the mov files from my Panasonic digital camera with SUPER or XMedia Recode or TMPGEnc, save the result as mpg and play it back via my HD-S2 (with correct sound and video).
Could anybody enlighten me on the function of such a mks file, which is obviously dispensable in the case of mpg files? Is it just to discourage technisat customers to try some video processing and subsequent re-import?
