    Forget putty, but you do need to start a shell to run these commands. I've forgotten now how to start that up (I had to eventually replace the T2 with a 5000, so no more fun playing that way), but I am sure almost anyone on this forum can help you with that.

    View Handset results without a tv

    I wish now I had explained what I wanted to to do and asked for Forum advice before starting. Would have save me not hours but days of time. The 5000t looks very good from the normal end-user point of view (eg has 3 tuners & remote scheduling), but the CF puts the HDR into a different league...

    View Handset results without a tv

    I tried using webif, but maybe not the right way. I can see [ÙSB Storage] and can supposedly copy to there, but that doesnt seem to be the FAT part of the usb, i.e. not visible to Windows thereafter. Aha - using Download to the PC

    View Handset results without a tv

    We only have one tv in the house which is in constant use by you know who. There appear to be some operations, like copy to usb, which can only be done using the remote. Is there any way to see what would be showing on the TV?

    Yes, it was the troublesome unit. All the log files give a read error. Tried to edit them, just a blank window. Other files I can see eg mod/etc/anacrontab

    The crop script worked a treat, thanks. And much quicker than re-doing detectads.

    I have used Unix in the distant past (with Putty if I recall), but never with the Humax. How do I start a shell? Just tried Command line again, and its working now. no longer err 503. Will pursue the commands suggested

    Ethernet cable not connecting

    That's what I did. So to check the cable, tried connecting it direct into the laptop & with DHCP could (just, v faint) see its new ip address & that was connectable OK. Tried again with the cable into the router and after some re-booting it now works. It had reported network connected, but...

    Ethernet cable not connecting

    I can connect via a wifi dongle, but cant get an ethernet cable to work. Tried DHCP & Manual. Any suggestions? (Why bother? I have 2 T2s but only one wifi dongle)
