    Resolving HDR-FOX Crash/Reboot Issues

    Well, to be honest I couldn't find the thread referred to - the search doesn't seem to work. I guess I should have tried harder to find it. I read 'Things Every...' again and googled but didn't spot it.

    Resolving HDR-FOX Crash/Reboot Issues

    For what it is worth I think I have resolved my crashing issue. It turns out my network was badly configured, I switched router a couple of weeks ago and, although I have manual IP address configuration the same on both I forgot that the default route is different (I give the routers different...

    Resolving HDR-FOX Crash/Reboot Issues

    Yep sorry guys, meant HDR - bad day on the keyboard. It's been slightly better the last couple of days but I have been trying to avoid leaving it on More4.

    Resolving HDR-FOX Crash/Reboot Issues

    Don't know if this helps at all but my HDD has also been crashing a lot the last few days. I've been away from these forums for a while so I may have missed something but my diagnosis so far is the disk seems fine and the crashes happen most often when left on More4 but not exclusively.

    DeDupe/ Tidy this folder button logic

    Yes, I have had this a few times too - I hadn't thought of that solution but a larger file wins logic is likely to work almost every time.

    Odd WD Purple Behaviour

    I made the mistake of ordering the 1TB WD Purple for my HDR as well. It seems to function ok (still in the first week of use) but I have had some odd behaviour. For example yesterday I had trouble with my broadband (no internet access for several hours) and the HDR locked up (no data recorded by...

    HDR FOX T2 Locking Up after CF 3.03 upgrade

    Thanks all for your suggestions and input. I can safely say the fan is working as it should now with the temperature rising and falling as expected. There is very little chance that the fan was obstructed before but I suppose there is a remote chance that the connector was not properly pushed...

    HDR FOX T2 Locking Up after CF 3.03 upgrade

    Ok, the temperature has now risen to 53 degrees and sysmon is not reporting the fan coming on at all. Should I consider that there is a fault in a sensor and just revert to using 'fan' to force it on? (The humax is in a cupboard so noise is not an issue.) See sysmon log attached. Note, 11am is...

    HDR FOX T2 Locking Up after CF 3.03 upgrade

    Lots of bad sectors I'm afraid. I have a suspicion that the fan may not have been running properly, I had arranged a return of the drive and when I went to take it out the housing was literally too hot to touch. Sadly I did not have sysmon installed although I have done so now, I also installed...

    HDR FOX T2 Locking Up after CF 3.03 upgrade

    Hmm, well last night my WebIF was reporting disk problems so I decided to take the plunge and run fix-disk in maintenance mode. Started at 8pm last night and it was still running this morning when I left for work - just an endless stream of bad inodes and the like that are being fixed. IF it...

    HDR FOX T2 Locking Up after CF 3.03 upgrade

    I have been having lock ups this weekend too. I am still on 3.02 and have made no changes recently other than a new hard drive a couple of months ago. On Saturday morning I noticed that the box seemed to lock up when trying to play a recording, I power cycled and eventually got it to play (three...

    Problems using HDMI over Cat5 Extender

    Could do (have a few spares around) but I like to see what is going on when the remote becomes unresponsive. There have been times when the front button will cause it to come to life and I would rather do that than power cycle if I don't have to. I can also monitor as it comes up to see if...

    Problems using HDMI over Cat5 Extender

    In my case it isn't a second TV, it's the first and only one, the reason I don't have the Hummy by the TV is because it is mounted on kitchen cabinets and there is no obvious place for the Hummy and even if there was it would get all greasy in the kitchen. I have my Hummy in the cupboard under...

    Problems using HDMI over Cat5 Extender

    Just thought I would weigh in here with my experience since I seem to be one of only a few people using these cat5 HDMI extenders with the Humax. My Hummy is located under the stairs next to the consumer unit which is also where the aerial lead comes into the house and is distributed to various...

    New user of custom CW (but old user of HDR-FOX T2)

    After a lot of experimentation I found that MX Player seems to be the most reliable for playing video from the Humax on my Android tablet. I connect to the network drive and play the .ts files directly which seems to work better than using the web interface and also works on HD files if you have...
