Hello, Sorry for another Topfield updaters question thread, most of my questions have been answered elsewhere but there's a couple that I'd like to clarify before I purchase. I've had a bit of a trawl through the threads here and at Digital Spy but am after a couple of clarifications. Sorry if stuff has been asked and answered before. Conflict resolution when auto padding and splitting / renaming recordings. I'm not a fan of accurate recording, my parents have a Tvonics PVR and, as others point out here, is great when it works but is a bit hit and miss once away from the big 5 channels. For the time being, I'll probably use auto padding which is what I use now with the Topfield and have very few failures. How does the FoxT2 cope with the following when auto padding … BBC1 20:00-22:00 BBC2 20:30-21:00 BBC2 21:00-21:30 Does auto padding change over the BBC2 recordings at 21:00 or does it refuse to accept them as they “overlap”? If I record BBC2 from 20:30 to 21:30 as a single recording, can I split it later and also, can I rename the second half. Series Link: Can series link be used with Auto Padding or must accurate record be used. Rolling Delete: Does the custom firmware fully address the “rolling delete” issue? Does it prevent the rolling delete happening or does it just stop it in its tracks requiring all of the recordings to be copied off the box, the disk reformatting and the recordings reinstated. Power Failures: How does it cope with the power failing a) during a recording. And b) When in standby. Archiving Recordings to DVD I understand that recordings can be archived off the box to a PC on the network for burning to DVD using the custom firmware. Can this be done directly over the ethernet network or does the transfer need to be done via a USB drive/stick. What format are the video files, what software works to then edit / burn to DVD? Can HD files be downconverted to SD for burning to DVD? Any software suggestions. Currently with video files I use ProjectX to convert to a program stream, PVAstrumento to correct audio offsets and then Nero to edit / burn. Can radio (from freeview, not Iplayer) recordings be archived off and converted to MP3 (to play in the car). Again, what format comes off the box and what (if anything) is needed. Currently with the Topfield I use ProjectX to get an MP2 stream and then Audacity to edit / convert to MP3. Streaming from the box: For these questions, assume that the ethernet and hardware side of things works. Can recordings be streamed to a PC on the LAN. Can radio recordings be streamed to something like a Roberts radio on the LAN. My old Topfield recordings. Not that there are many, but would it be possible to transfer the .rec files from my Topfield to the Fox. Would they need any conversion? The Youview box. My understanding is that recordings cannot (yet) be extracted for archiving from the youview box, is that correct? I think that's it, thanks for your time, hopefully, if I go ahead and buy one, I'll be able to return the favour! Trev.
