Custom Firmware doesn't seem to 'stick' (HD-FOX T2)

    I've probably missed something glaringly obvious, but for whatever reason I don't seem to be able to get the custom firmware working. I updated to the latest Humax firmware, which worked fine, but when I try to install the latest custom firmware over it, everything seems to be fine, but nothing appears different. The custom portal doesn't come up when I go into the Humax portal, and I can't seem to telnet into the box, it just says it can't open a connection to the host. I'm definitely using the correct IP as stated in the box's settings.
    I'm perplexed!

    Is there a surefire way to check that the custom firmware has 'stuck'?

    Well as if by magic, the telnet suddenly works!
    *shrug*

    Ah well!

    How are you doing now? You shouldn't need to use Telnet, but you will need to access the Web Interface using a web browser.

    To check for sillies: you do have an external USB drive attached, and have used the HD-FOX to format it?

    All working like a charm now, the Web interface is fine and the custom portal is running great.
    I was concerned that the old laptop drive in an icybox I'm using was a problem, but even that's all good.
