'AutoFoxy'

Hi,

I've got a HDR-1800T which I recently connected to my home network. Having read about the 'Foxy' process on these forums, I was initally using that to be able to watch HD recordings on other TVs around the house. However, I ended up writing a small Windows utility to automate the process - a sort of 'AutoFoxy'. I thought I'd share it here in case it's of use to anyone else.

There's a screenshot attached to give you the idea. But essentially, it takes care of all the FTP-ing and modifying of the .hmt files. You just connect to your Humax from the app, choose which recordings to 'Foxy' and they'll all be done at once.

I'm aware this probably isn't the first program or script to automate the Foxy procedure (and it's probably several years too late!) but it may be useful to someone.

it requires an older version of Windows than I’m currently using
Eh? Usually it's the other way round. Can you be more specific?

Edit: IIRC you're using XP and this requires at least 7, so it requires "...a newer version of...".

For the avoidance of doubt, AutoFoxy just requires Win7 as a minimum. It should work on that and all subsequent Windows versions.

Ok so I got it wrong. We all make mistakes or forget to check our working. My finger is typing faster than my brain can keep up with. (Only one finger on iPhone. Would be worse on PC as I can type reasonably quickly and don’t suffer from autocorrect)
 
That sounds like a fantastic utility you've created to streamline the 'Foxy' process for HD recordings! Your 'AutoFoxy' app seems like a game-changer for Humax users looking to watch recordings across multiple TVs hassle-free. Thanks for sharing it with the community! For those interested, the download link is available here:

And already posting spam links, enjoy your ban fool. I would suggest nobody clicks on those links as they may be toxic.

Edit gone already, the camel jockey has left the building and so have his links.

Unless there was a post before his that has been removed. :confused:

I wondered why this old thread (previous latest post October 2021) had suddenly resurrected with a comment by RobH1, and the answer is that a spammer caused it to pop up in new posts. RobH1's post then cemented the thread into the currently active threads list.
 
Spammers! (Spit!). The only Spam that interests me is (allegedly) a meat product, usually in tins. All other spam can go forth and multiply (not literally, of course).
