    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Attempting to get the STB to perform a formatting procedure on a 64 GB UPD yielded the exact same result as the attempt with the smaller UPD described in post #14. Does anybody have any idea why the STB seems to be unwilling to format UPDs? Is there anything I can do to change this? Otherwise...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    To the best of my understanding, a BXR-HD is pretty much a HD-FOX T2 with regional specific software (mainly different language and no connectivity). I have not assumed this. The idea/statement was brought up by Black Hole in post #8: Since then I have merely argued that the hypothesis of a...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Ok. So yesterday I attempted to do this with one 8 GB UPD and one 500 GB USB-HDD. The UPD seemed to be recognised just fine (the STB identified a name that appears to be accurate and the size matched the reality too) but it really did not want to be formatted by the STB, neither with a prompt...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Ok, lots of feedback, I like it! Not all of it perhaps, but still. First, I really appriciate that somebody (indeed anybody), clearly, read my entire post but a couple of quotes do not reflect my intentions. I never meant to invent any signal nor to imply that it exist at all to be a fact...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Well, this is pretty much the same idea as I put forward in post #4 when commenting on the backup, format, restore suggestion but in a more elegant way since the formatting of a working (except for recording purposes of course) drive is avoided. It does however have the other downside of that...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Thank you both Black Hole and prpr for replying. Fair enough, but both you and others have already discouraged me to install CF since my STB is not an HDR-FOX T2 which I think is probably reasonable. Fair enogh again. This may very well be the case, and eventually I may try to address this...

    Unnecessary (?) formatting request during boot sequence

    Hello! New issue from abroad. My STB prompts me to format each of my USB-HDDs in order to use recording on any of them since couple of days ago. I do not believe that it is necessary (plus I really do not want to...) since the contents of each USB-HDD are found and can be played with the STB...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    Ok. First things first: THANK YOU everybody for responding! Especially MontysEvilTwin for giving the KICK ASS PROBLEM SOLVING tip Ubuntu/e2fsck. I have written a lot already and I totally understand if everybody just want me to stop, but I will write just a bit more. Maybe somebody will stumble...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    OK. I'll try to get Ubuntu on a stick and start with e2fsck as MontysEvilTwin suggested in post #4 since the problem is most likely to be file system related then. When doing this, are there things and/or steps I need to be adhering to in order to not mess up? If at all possible coming from the...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    Well, regarding my post #12, please disregard my disregard... The renaming remark still stands but the inconsistancy regarding the recordings list page is (as I stated previously in post #1 and #3) that: If the list is empty (as it is now) the available space displayed on this page ought to be...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    OK, I realize that this is as it should be. I actually knew this already. Please don't hold this temporary delusion against me. The only reason I can think of which send me in this inaccurate direction is that before the list of recordings appear, you need to click OK on the USB HDD's name which...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    The path above the title of the post seems to indicate that the forum doesn't differentiate between the two models at least in the case of using CF. But I never meant to say that the post was guaranteed to neither be applicable to nor solve my issue. Also, I did state several concerns of my own...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    Thank you for the starting point tips. I gather that these are standard Linux PC software? Will they work on a USB HDD formatted and used by a Humax STB? I understood that and don´t have a problem with it. I even tried to split the links in two at the middle of the domain name, thinking that...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    Thanks for the swift response. If the disk is formatted, which I´m inclined to think as well, it seems to be of the quick format kind (perhaps I should have written quick formatted rather than reassigned). However, it´s not a standard quick format either since that makes the entire...

    Possible reassignment of external HDD

    Hello! THE ACTUAL PROBLEM Yesterday apparent disaster struck. One of the USB HDDs I use seemed to have 1. renamed itself and 2. lost all content. It appears as if my BXR-HD have seemed it appropriate to, when entering the recordings list page of the menu system (named VIDEO in my swedish...
