humax# hmt -p myfile | cut -f1
Time to join the dark side!Hi, thanks for your reply. I'm after the programme description.
Do I need the custom firmware to access the hmt utility (I'm guessing from your code that you've got terminal access to your humax?). My HDR T2 is vanilla at the moment.

You want -f2 then.Hi, thanks for your reply. I'm after the programme description.
There's a Linux (Ubuntu etc.) version of hmt (although it's slightly out of date, can be used if you have downloaded the .hmt file via FTP to a Linux PC), so no you don't need the custom firmware, but it's probably the easiest way.Do I need the custom firmware to access the hmt utility (I'm guessing from your code that you've got terminal access to your humax?).

You won't. And even if it did (which it won't!) you can put the standard firmware back.I've considered the custom firmware before and do want to give it a go, but its the only tv tuner in the house and I think I'd get in trouble with my family if I render it unusable...
I should add that I've got the files copied off on my laptop and I'm trying to archive some programmes and would like to use the metadata to make this process simpler.
You will need the custom firmware to decrypt the files on the Hummy before you download them, unless you have only SD files. You will not be able to play HD files on the laptop or another Hummy without using CF.
