i understand the 4gb limit , but does it mean that files smaller than that take up 4gb on the disk.
if not i plan to get a fat32 500gb drive ie sonnics, verbatim or similar .
this to store and play more programs.
also need to transfer the files to windows pc.
thanks for all replies.
i have now copied from foxt2 to a 16gb usb pen fat32 - went ok but painfully slow - 3 hrs for 16gb.
it also brought over .hmt .nts .thm files which i dont remember getting with the 9200t and e-linker.
would it be any faster using ext3 on a hdd ?
i have tried using foxt2...
i'm trying to copy from hdr foxt2 to my seagate expansion drive 500gb -- get message cant copy to ntfs file type.
i can copy to a usb pen stick ok - thats fat32 format - but limited file size.
the objective is to get files across to my laptop and pc - i dont need HD and dont want custom...
i find noise is not an issue withe the fox t2.
have just consigned my 9200t to shelf storage having downloaded - very slowly - the programs i want to save.
so far the foxt2 has given no trouble at all - the 9200t often got sluggish or locked up.
another big gain is its possible to load ts files...

hoping i can get .ts files off my 9200t and onto...
i was puzzled by the media video list of recorded programs - seems to be in random sequence rather than date/time on the 9200t.
then there is this "upper folder" of which i can find no reference in the manual- so dont know its purpose.
i have created some new folders and can presumeably sort int...
replacement box came next day - usual amazon service.
this one works !!
mixed feelings so far - some good - some puzzles - instruction manual is poor - eg what is a folder?
will raise issues later.
many thanks all helpers.
thanks to all who have helped on this.
amazon have just despatched my replacement first class delivery.
i will say that i bought humax again because this forum existed.
otherwise i may have gone elsewhere as i have found the service from the humax team to be poor.
they are still putting out...
yes , amazon have been in touch re replacement - they are usually very good at this - but i think the xmas rush may put a spanner in the works.
as an ex techie/radio ham i would have been happy to have a look - but its not a good idea nowadays - and dont want to fall foul of amazons...
new box recently arrived.
connect up - switch on at wall and back - just dead.
would expect at least a light and/or fan/drive noise - but nothing.
fuse is ok. wall plug is ok .
i think its faulty but before sending it back - am i missing something?
does the wizard have to be run before...
