Forgive me if this has been answered somewhere else (looked for 30 min couldn't find it). I have a series 2 DVR7000 that has gone dead and I just want to get the streams off the HHD. Is there anyway to just get all streams, because I don't know the FSIDs (can't boot the drive for now).

I have a working system with fedora core 2 on it. I tried to compile the mfs_export and get the following error.

[eric@localhost vplay]$ make
gcc -Wall -g -c query.c -o i386/query.o
query.c:106: error: conflicting types for 'query_object'
proto.h:29: error: previous declaration of 'query_object' was here
query.c:106: error: conflicting types for 'query_object'
proto.h:29: error: previous declaration of 'query_object' was here
query.c:28: warning: 'memdup' defined but not used
make: *** [i386/query.o] Error 1

Is there anyway to just get all streams, because I don't know the FSIDs (can't boot the drive for now).Short answer to the original question: The mfs_streams program will list the FSID's of all your recordings.

My advice:

Grab this (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39487) package. You can compile from source if you want, but the Linux-i686 binaries are static and should "just work".

Once you have working mfs_* binaries, see the instructions here (http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?p=201494&highlight=mfs_uberexport#post201494).
