    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    Thanks for your quick and helpful reply, which got me thinking in the correct direction. I have now solved my problem(s):- Although I don't remember doing it, the UK Humax was actually setup for mode 2, as was its own remote. This explains why there was no cross-communication between the two...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    So what next? Do I painfully and painstakingly configure every button on the two Humax remotes a few at a time until each box can be properly controlled when the other is powered off? That worries me because I might need to trash an entire configuration to start again after assigning a new...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    I know I shouldn't have tried too much in the day, but I switched the Harmony to instruct the Aussie Humax and watch a pre-recorded news program before I went to bed. Instead of the Aussie Humax coming out of standby, the Fox-T2 went INTO standby! OK, I thought to myself, this must be an omen...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    I re-assembled the Fox-T2 remote, which simply required careful alignment of the components and snapping the back cover in place. More camera "selfies" to verify the more important buttons "flashed purple" nicely, although several down the left side weren't perfect, and back to the Harmony...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    I arrived home with the Harmony and installed the windoze customisation software. Yes, it did support my HDR-Fox-T2, but there was a huge catch! It refused to configure the interface unless I could provide the original remote! I started by lying to the question, but immediately was told there...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    It didn't take me long on this forum, and elsewhere to decide the Logitech Harmony would make a good replacement. I've always hated the remote for the Aussie Humax, so the Harmony could replace both Humax remotes in time. The Logitech told me the Harmony 350 would be compatible with the...

    HDR-Fox-T2 Real and Web remote problems and configuring Logitech Harmony 350

    I thought it best to start a new thread, even though these topics turn up in many other existing threads. This is because I think I am about 90% on the way to success, so my efforts are worth pulling together. Also, I hope this is a good time to ask for some advice about the best way to finish...

    "No Entry" sign for info about BBC mp4 video file

    Just a postscript to finish my story. I am well into the restoration process and discovered some of my recordings were not mp4, but were "bare" ts files. The latest sidecar (2.2) restored their metadata from the original transmission streams perfectly. Thanks to the author and maintainers of...

    "No Entry" sign for info about BBC mp4 video file

    Agreed, but not always so easy for me using the linux tools. I switched from the older ffmpeg to avconv because it is "more intelligent" about choosing the conversion you probably want to perform, and so it requires a smaller number of arcane command-line parameters. (Sometimes, avconv doesn't...

    "No Entry" sign for info about BBC mp4 video file

    Thanks very much (everyone) for your collectively helpful suggestions. Black Hole: yes, I had already thought of using the linux avconv program to do something similar. However, remuxing can often consume a lot of processor time and so I only do it when I have a special requirement and am...

    "No Entry" sign for info about BBC mp4 video file

    I have a HDR FOX-T2 purchased in the UK, running firmware 1.03.12 and custom firmware 3.02. When I was last in the UK I missed some BBC programs and picked up the mp4's using get_iplayer, then transferred them to my humax. linux avprobe shows me all of the metadata on each of the files, and the...

    Custom Firmware for Humax HDR-7500T

    Agreed. The only thing that I've found to work is to start with a channels.db that works somewhere in the country, then replace the important fields in each row with those values which have been independently identified as locally correct, e.g. multiplex frequency, pids for audio and video...

    Custom Firmware for Humax HDR-7500T

    My initial comparison shows the FOX-T2 and 7510T have very similar channels.db, but the FOX-T2 schema has extra columns in the tables TBL_SVC, TBL_TS and TBL_NET. It seems risky to drop the 7510T channels.db onto the FOX-T2 when its firmware expects a database with more columns. I think I need...

    Custom Firmware for Humax HDR-7500T

    I am not sure I understand your question. If you refer to my original thread about the FOX-T2 (http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/humax-hdr-fox-t2-moved-from-uk-to-australia.5909/), you will find a lot more background information. There are two separate "databases" under discussion: The priming...

    Custom Firmware for Humax HDR-7500T

    I wasn't happy buying a 7500T because it seems the stocks are low in Australian shops, and the remaining units are being discounted. However, I have now bought a 7510T after discovering it is more-or-less the same unit, just with some minor cosmetic differences. Not surprisingly, the 7510T...
