    Ah, OK, on the other forum. Thanks!

    15s delay responding to play, pause, stop etc

    Thanks all for your explanations and advice. The HDD has thrown a couple of recoverable errors recently. I'm thinking that, although the checks indicate that it's OK, it might be worth at least having a replacement on standby just in case. My understanding is that it's advisable to use an HDD...

    15s delay responding to play, pause, stop etc

    Yup, just finished running fixdisk, output below. It seems to think there is a problem with the redring.log file but I've no idea how to address that. Otherwise I think it looks as if it's fixed the problem. Please select option: fixdisk Any additional options (-h for list or press return for...

    15s delay responding to play, pause, stop etc

    First noticed this misbehaviour this evening; when playing recordings the box hangs for ~15s before responding to play, pause, stop, FFWS and RWD commands (oddly, skip forward and skip back work fine). The box does not respond to any other remote key presses - e.g. the Mute button - while it is...

    Humble feature request

    Thanks, I'll give sweeper a go. I thought it would be a long shot. The Simpsons on C4 is broadcast at 16:9 whether the actual programme content is widescreen or not. If it's not it just has black bands added each side to fill up the empty space either side of the actual image.

    Humble feature request

    I was wondering whether it would be possible for the "Mark new" function to be performed on more than one file at a time, e.g. by ticking the check box against each recording required to be marked as new, and thern having a 'batch action' button at the bottom of the window as there is for...

    Box schedules *two* instances of the same programme

    Ah, OK, thanks for the tip. I hate those split schedules. I've heard that they're used to get round the rules about the number and lengths of ad breaks in long programmes by inserting a short "film news" programme part way through. If I were OFCOM I'd be telling the TV companies to stop taking...

    Box schedules *two* instances of the same programme

    I've just tried to schedule a recording of Thunderball at 19:20 this evening (Saturday) on ITV4, from the EPG. I was puzzled when the box prompted me to sort out a clash with two other programmes scheduled to be recorded, but on Thursday night. I went in to the recording schedule and cancelled...

    undelete and USB drives

    Can confirm that deleting a recording from the USB drive via the TV screen UI does not cause a copy to be made in the dustbin on the internal HDD. Neither does it move the recording to a dustbin on the USB drive. The same goes for deleting recordings on the USB drive (including all sidecar...

    undelete and USB drives

    Nope. As I say, the reported behaviour is as observed when using the WebIF. I've yet to test it using the user interface on the TV screen. But as it happens I have an opportunity to do so just now, having transferred some recordings off from the USB drive earlier today. Watch this space...

    undelete and USB drives

    Having just recently enabled undelete, I'm now noticing that deleting files from my USB drive takes a lot longer than before (via the WebIF at least, I've not yet tried it via the user interface on the TV). It seems that this is because the delete operation is moving the file to the dustbin on...

    Decrypting HD recordings not working

    The tweak is still available in Firefox - at least, the preference is still there and can be changed. Upping the value to from the default 90 to 1200 (seconds, I assume, so 20 minutes) doesn't make any difference, though: decrypts fail after 6 minutes either way. That suggests to me that it's...

    Decrypting HD recordings not working

    Thanks for this explanation. I can't see myself going down that path if queueing decrypts proves to be a satisfactory workaround for my purposes in the long term. The protected session approach looks a bit complicated - although I could probably skip the re-integration in to the media library...

    Decrypting HD recordings not working

    That log is empty. I have now updated the auto processing settings and successfully decrypted the test recording I was using above by submitting it to the queue (FWIW the successful decryption took 10 minutes 26 seconds). So it does look like the problem is caused by a timeout in the web page...

    Decrypting HD recordings not working

    Just checked: a 1 hour 5 minute/3.93GiB recording failed 55% of the way through after 6 minutes pretty much on the nail. The xxx.ts.decrypting file continued to grow after the manual decryption had jumped to 100%. After a few more minutes it was the same size as the original xxx.ts file, and...
