    sky and humax

    A friend has given me a NowTV box and 6 months sky movies (they got it free and already have it) and I'm wondering how to make best use alongside a Freeview HDR box. In particular, with a new baby, we don't watch much live TV at present, so I'm wondering if there is any way of recording sky...

    Duplicate recordings

    I do for a few things, but I have up to 5 auto matches per day, and the primary advantage of the feature is that its fully automated!

    Duplicate recordings

    I think I know the answer to this already, but no harm in asking! I use the RS package to schedule many of my recordings, and on occasion, it will pick duplicates. For example, this morning I had a conflict warning for Columbo, because it had picked up ITV, ITVHD and ITV+1. I believe the CRID...

    HD Fox issues

    Cheers both - having some features in flash and some on stick makes sense! I use a UPD on the HD Box, as all the recording is done on the HDR downstairs, so I can't check recordings or TSR. I also understand about them becoming flaky over time - which is what seems to happen. The only reason I...

    HD Fox issues

    Every now and then, my HD Fox seems to forget it has the CFW, so it has lost the ability to see the downstairs box via the USB method, the portal is back to the default one, and I have no webif access. However, I have just tried to telnet in (a CFW feature I believe) and succeeded - where it...

    New firmware Version 1.03.12 for HDR-FOX T2

    cheers BH! One thing I wanted to check - and I feel I should really know the answer already, and its probably clear somewhere, but I blame baby brain! Does the single zip file HDR_FOX_T2_1.02.32_mod_2.21.zip from the wiki contain BOTH the OFW and CFW? In the past, I've probably downloaded the...

    New firmware Version 1.03.12 for HDR-FOX T2

    I confess to skipping a little of the thread... I'm planning on downgrading to an older OFW, as the EPG lag is bugging me! I wanted to check my steps - Uninstall CFW Install required OFW reinstall correct CFW Is this right? do I need to uninstall the latest CFW first? cheers!

    [CFW 2.22/1.03.12] Customised firmware based on 1.03.12

    thanks for the new CFW af... sterling work! I can confirm the epg lag is awful on .12 - although I don't know what I was running previously (not .11). I would guess at a minimum of 1 second to respond to a button press when scrolling up or down. I do have lots of out-of-date recordings, so I...

    Help! Can't access share, ftp, or web backend!

    same boat here - should disabled ota, but forgot! Anyway, i'm in two minds whether to downgrade to .11 and reinstall the CFW, or just wait it out for a bit! So, and in no way wishing to pester, I just wondered what the likely timescale might be for a new version of the CFW! if its up to a week...

    Channel Groups

    thanks all - I confess I hadn't at that point done the schedule restore, and didn't realise it did both! Feel free to move to the custom FW thread if that's helpful!

    Channel Groups

    Possibly! I didn't know if it was a built in feature that I'd missed, a custom feature somewhere, or whether it can be done at all!
  12. D

    Channel Groups

    This is probably answered somewhere, but I couldn't find it! Is there a way of saving my custom channel groups so that I can restore them after a retune? I'm happy restoring the schedule, but can't see how to do the custom groups, if possible! Cheers Dave

    Firmware problems

    After some issues with my CFW not working (not webif connection and old-style portal) I thought I'd better reinstall it all. Box is running 1.02.20. I downloaded CFW 2.20 for the 1.02.20 OFW, extracted to a FAT32 USB stick (the same one that had been working) and it wouldn't read the hdf file...

    auto-mount

    cheers brian - it sounds like folder name was the important bit - I kept trying My Video and variations on a theme. I then wondered if it should be nfs... incidentally, is it Media or media? (case sensitive? I assumed yes?)
