I replaced a hard drive in one of my RpTV units, but saved all the mpg, evt and ndx files to my local pc. The files all have all-numeric names. Yes, I know that I could have copied the entire MPG partition to the new drive... but I wasn't that smart at the time and now it's too late.

Do the EVT and NDX files contain any information about the name of the show, description, etc? If they have this information, can it be extracted?

If I want to import these (into DVArvchive), do I really need to go back and look at every one so I can create the title, description, etc., on re-importing to DVArchive?

I think the answer is yes. I had the same thing happen to me and now I have about 60 Gigs worth of shows to go through. It's a pain for sure...

Rename the files, run RTVConvert on them to create new .evt and .ndx entries and then import them into DVA...

A pain, I know...
