It all depends on how much data and problems there are. I have had it run for over 12 hours. You can access it via maintenance mode to check the progress.
If you are going to format the HDDs then you might as well use dd to blank the disk (and then use the Humax software to partition and format). After that fixdisk should be relatively fast.I also think I will format the HDDs and start from scratch. I am not prepared to spend days on end troubleshooting whatever!.
What do you guys think?.
Depends. The thing about many of these box problems is that the individual who has them is quite likely to never have it again, so it's probably simpler/safer to advise them or point them to relevant parts of the documentation as they ask each question. Otherwise it's like teaching someone Arabic to go to Dubai for a long weekend.When are we going to teach people how to fish instead of just giving them fish?
I'm guessing Luke was referring to his post here :-When are we going to teach people how to fish instead of just giving them fish?
Bricked? How?I've got a bricked T2
It will still be recording the active channel.if a T2 is active and not on a schedule recording, it still will be recording the active channel as part of Freeview Plus.
On all of my T2's it has a 'Freeview HD +' logo, am I wrong then? Isn't it constantly writing so you can rewind live TV?Bricked? How?

Freeview Plus doesn't factor in anything. This box was made before it was ever invented.
Not the post I was thinking of but it is along the same lines.I'm guessing Luke was referring to his post here :-
But my guess might be wrong, more detail is definitely required here
At the time I thought that if I just googled "DD" it would come up with anything meaningful. To my surprise it was very easy to find something that fitted the context. I was very pleased that PRPR didn't overcook his reply.You could always use dd to blank the disk (and then use the Humax software to partition and format) or run mke2fs manually to format whichever is the troublesome partition (presumably /dev/sda2).
You didn't mention "Freeview HD +". You reffered to the far later standard of "Freeview Play", thus the confusion of what you were really thinking.On all of my T2's it has a 'Freeview HD +' logo, am I wrong then?
