    Dedup is stripping the titles of my films

    Reporting back. I turned off dedup, and removed the superfluous "Remove New:" rules from sweeper. And the problem is gone. Thank you all for your help, and sorry for blaming sweeper!

    Dedup is stripping the titles of my films

    To be honest, I think I installed one of those packages months before the other, and forgot I was effectively doing the same thing in different ways. If newk does this job well, I'll remove these rules from sweeper this evening. My list of actions for tonight: 1. Check if dedup is enabled for...

    Dedup is stripping the titles of my films

    I might. I will check tonight. It would be a bit superfluous if I did, I imagine, given that films are unlikely to be duplicates.

    Dedup is stripping the titles of my films

    [originally misposted in the FOXSAT forum, because I'm tired and stupid] Hi. I wonder if anyone can help with the following mystery. I have sweeper installed with the following rules: # Remove New_ prefix. recurse 1 filename New_* action {renamefile {%orig%regsub,New_\s*,,}} # Remove New...

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    prpr - Yes and yes. Thankfully the combination of wiping the disk, reversion to original firmware, then the custom firmware updates in sequence had the desired effect. I am now 4-5 days without a problem, running all the latest firmware, with WebIF and RS working too. Thank you for the assistance.

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    I suppose that technically it is a restart, not a crash. The system boots as normal. I start watching. Whether I do anything or not (i.e. if I touch the remote buttons, or don't touch them at all) after ~20 seconds, the screen goes blank, the front of the Humax says RESTARTING or REBOOTING, and...

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    So, as for the diagnostics (listed here): 1 - not relevant, as I have access to the box after a reboot 2a - unit crashes ~20 seconds after boot even when booting to BBC1 2b - unit crashes ~20 seconds after boot when network disconnected 2c - content sharing is turned off, but I have also reset...

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    Hello. Thanks for the thoughts and advice. I think I was getting a bit desperate last night... almost hoping it was a hardware thing in order that I could just b my way out of the problem ;) One thing I have done since my last post is to move all the data files off to a computer over the...

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    Thanks. I have gone though all the options in Section 2, so it must be hardware. It isn't overheating (after the initial power-up crash, the unit then operates for hours on end). As such, it is likely to be the HDD, I imagine. I ordered the Humax in August 2011, and perhaps 3.5 years of heavy...

    Crash ~20 seconds after power-up

    I have a Humax HDR-Fox T2. Background: I was running an old version of the custom firmware (an awesome community effort!) happily for at least a year. I ran in to some issues in early April. Recordings were failing. Live TV failed to pause. I thought maybe it was the expiry of the old custom...

    Feature request(?) - Keep most recent only

    af123 - Wow. I never knew that was there. A very useful feature, and yes, I think it is likely to do everything I need, even though it specifies by days instead of by 'most recent episodes'. Many thanks again for you expertise and input. The Hummy is one of the few purchases that - with the...

    Feature request(?) - Keep most recent only

    Having just gone through deleting a million episodes of In the Night Garden my wife set the Hummy up to record before we went on holiday, I wanted to know if there was a option to keep on the most recent x episodes of a programme. Does this option exist on the custom firmware already? I did...

    Video codecs on the HDR

    Ubik - would you be so kind as to share your settings for StaxRip? I have just downloaded it and am toying with the settings.

    [webif] Web interface

    Thanks for the screenshots. I can click through to the Web Interface screenshot, but the first link doesn't work for me. Is it just me, or is the link broken? Ignore - it's working now

    wishlist on next update

    I have just upgraded to the latest official firmware, and noticed this about Trailer Booking too (although I do love the feature). Is there any common pattern discernible? For example, if there are three entries, is the first for SD, the second for HD, the third for a series? Or is there no way...
