Keith_RAK did you get anywhere with diagnosing/fixing the problem? As of Oct 31st our HDR-Fox T2 started randomly freezing + rebooting. We're running quite an old version of the customised firmware, so when I get home tonight, I'll be upgrading that to see if it makes any difference.
As far as I know, you just let it go at it whilst the box is switched on. You could double-check the Opt+ menu in the web interface to see whether there's an option to bring a file to the front of the queue.
You don't need to do much.. just install it from the Packages menu, and it'll start churning through your HD recordings, unprotecting them. It might take a while :-)
I've not taken much off the box & haven't hit the 4Gb limit, so can't comment.
Streaming from the Humax box to other devices is enabled out of the box, even without the custom firmware. Use an app like Skifta (to browse the files) and MX Player to play the files back. It'll only work with SD recordings, unless you use the auto-unprotect package in the custom firmware.
Any ideas why this has happened to the epgkeywords area.. it used to work & I did have a couple set up.. but it stopped working a few months ago. I guess I should move over to the remote scheduling interface, but quite liked the emails my box sent me :-)
Ah, I am running the auto-unprotect package, so that's why HD works. BTW, if anyone is using a Blackberry Playbook, a really decent media player just added DLNA support, and it works like a charm with the HDR-Fox T2. I shot some video of it in action;
I've been streaming to a Android phone using Skifta and MX Player. It's been handling SD really well, and I've had HD running through it pretty well in the past.. not sure if auto-unprotect is running (need to check tonight if anyone is interested). I notice that Skifta is out for iOS as well...
I moved from the Toppy & don't miss much, especially with the custom firmware + packages that are available. I think the only thing that's missing is how you could record programs in MyStuff by specifying keywords, time ranges, and channels. But that's a minor thing, and I find series linking...
