Surely the tv mode used makes no difference to whether or not ffmpeg can 
convert the file ?

As I said in another reply the downloads complete, they are .ts files 
which VLC will play.  So the problem I deduce to be with ffmpeg.  Either 
the version I'm using or perhaps that GIP doesn't know where to find it.
