    Black Hole's Trail Guide to the HDR-FOX T2 Forum


    The idea is to index the existing content so it can be found by subject (and the wheat is extracted from the chaff). Consider it a work-in-progress - if you spot or know of something of general merit, alert me to it in a reply and I will add it to the index. It will help me if your reply includes all the details needed in the format below.

    Anybody with an eye on the HD-FOX T2 section, please flag up anything of particular relevance (and merit) to the HDR-FOX T2.

    Note that this index naturally lags behind developments, and information located may be outdated. Check the date of the most recent post in the topic, and be vigilant whether more recent firmware updates have altered the situation. As a second string it is always worth searching the forum - see hints in post 2 (click).

    Short-Cut Guide to the Wiki


    Hints for Searching the Forum/Wiki

    The forum includes a search facility (top left on the main forum listings), and it has sophisticated options to filter the results, but it won't always locate what you want.

    As an alternative, a Google search can be restricted to a particular web site using a prefix, so typing the following into Google:
    Code:
    site:hummy.tv/forum "trail guide"
    will find my trail guide topic. The equivalent for the Wiki is site:wiki.hummy.tv/wiki.

    It would be great to get rid of the annoying 'processing' progress bar during a slide show and replace it with a fade in/out?
    The option to select a blank screensaver whilst listening to music would be nice

    Geoff, this is an index. I meant recommendations for topics and posts to be linked in the index.

    Feature requests that are feasible for the software mods can be posted in the main topic. Your requests would be changes to the Humax code, and you should address them to Humax directly (they do not monitor or contribute to the forum).

    Having said that, I seem to remember a wish list somewhere, but I can't find it and it wouldn't make any difference anyway (except perhaps generate support).

    Update: here it is http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/wishlist-on-next-update.314/

    I realised afterwards that it was incorrectly posted, I should't be logged on whilst i'm at work!

    Hello BlackHole, for the suggestion box...

    There are a number of threads on editing, converting, burning to dvd and generally messing about with recordings and stuff that might fit on the list either with the existing Miscellaneous>Other...>Video File Support or perhaps in the main thread indexes somewhere?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I have Custom Web interface v0.8.3.2
    loaded and see that my custom firmware is v 1.13
    I see v1.14 is available but can find no release notes on what the difference is and whether I should install it
    should this be put onto the Customised firmware page or do I need Brain memory or Glasses replaced :)
