Hallo - Not sure which thread to post this on. I have been getting the skip/pixilated when on recordings over last few weeks, which is getting worse and worse. Also blank screen/signal scrambled etc message when playing recordings or playing back live TV now happening every 5 mins or so...arghh (but not when watching the programme live). Contacted Humax and they said reformatting HD would cure the problem. So, although feeling this was a Humax problem not mine, looked around and then bought My Book Live thinking this would solve general back-up for Mac and also for copying content of the Humax in readiness for the reformat. Discovered it only has ethernet socket. Have tried connecting it direct to the Humax and configuring internet settings LAN - but while it says it is connected to the network, when looking for the network storage when trying to copy and move the recordings it doesn't list it. Am I barking up the wrong tree? Can you only use external storage connected by USB on the Humax? Use WiFi Dongle to connect to broadband and router - could I back up through this if I connected My Book Live to the router (did try this, but again it did not find the storage). Confused and not sure what to do (except take it back and get USB storage). Can anyoe help?
