    Switching off Telnet - which way around?

    Thanks for the ideas/reassurances... I'll admit I'm not overly fussed about the command line access, I'd rather just improve security - and it's good to know there is a workaround if needed. I need to go back through my Fox T2's settings etc as it seems to have thrown a wobbler a couple of...

    Switching off Telnet - which way around?

    Thanks for your replies folks. I was trying to turn Telnet off under the advanced settings area, but I guess that's just the menu. I'll have a go with the dropbear-ssh package though to disable it properly. Thanks again.

    Switching off Telnet - which way around?

    Hi, I'm just trying to switch off telnet access on my Fox T2. In the web interface, the option is "Disable telnet menu?" (Yes/no) When I select Yes (as in Yes, disable it) the resulting message states the telnet server will be enabled. Could I please just check which way is off?

    Resetting HD FOX2 for new owner

    Hi, I've recently sold my old HD FOX2... Is the best way to the leave the box for the new owner, just a factory reset and then pull the plug without retuning? Many thanks.

    Regular Auto Update on HDR-2000T

    Could I please just check that during the daily auto update check, the hard drive presumably spins up and back down again? I'm looking for a STB for someone in a bedroom environment, who is currently woken by their Sony box every morning.

    No more package updates for Custom Firmware 2.xx (after March 2015)

    I'm currently running 1.03.12 / 2.23, but would like to downgrade to 1.02.32 when moving to 3.03 to see if it speeds up the TV guide. I can't remember what the original FW was, but as I bought the machine in Nov 2011, I presume it will have been pre-1.03.06? ...and I don't have to do anything...

    Crash/Reboot cycle that's cured by attaching to network

    Thanks for the info/tip BH. I'll have a play, and will first try a different channel for the 4am OTA update block. Annoyingly (from a diagnostic point of view) the issue only seems to happen on the first boot of the day so will wait until next weekend so I can be around to see what happens.

    Crash/Reboot cycle that's cured by attaching to network

    The past couple of weekends our Humax has gone into a crash/reboot cycle when switched in the morning. According to the crash log, the reboots take place every 66-84 seconds, and the machine works during this time, then the picture freezes (sound continues) as it crashes. The only way I've...

    Even an 'under construction' animated GIF would have been better.

    Anyone know if humaxdirect.co.uk is offline or gone? It's just bringing up 404s.

    No more package updates for Custom Firmware 2.xx (after March 2015)

    Thank you for the advice folks. I'll get my HDR/HD updated, though may leave it until after the festive period to avoid any potential ear-ache in our household.

    No more package updates for Custom Firmware 2.xx (after March 2015)

    Having never previously updated the firmware, is it just a case of installing over the top? Will the packages need re-installing/configuring? Current: Web interface version: 1.0.13-2 (Lighttpd) Custom firmware version: 2.23 (build 2035) Humax Version: 1.03.12 (kernel HDR_1.03.12)
