Want to play HD video from the HDR-Fox-T2 on your PC ? Well now you can, with Foxy, the first utility to enable in the clear HiDef backups from the HDR-Fox-T2. Firstly can I state quite categorically that Foxy does not decrypt HD video from the T2. However, what it does do is enable the T2 to do this for you. It does this by modifying the recordings hmt file, so that the HD recording is treated in the exactly the same way as an SD recording, when copied to a USB drive. Foxy does not require any changes to be made to your T2 firmware. Operation is as simple as dragging and dropping the hmt file into Foxy's window and it's done in a flash. Literally, it only takes a fraction of a second and Foxy will then flash its window to denote success. There are two methods for using Foxy, depending on whether you have your T2 connected to a network. With a network connection (a) Using FTP, copy the hmt file from the HD recording onto your PC. (b) Start Foxy then drag and drop the hmt file into Foxy's window. Alternatively, you can browse for it. Foxy's window will then flash to denote success. (c) Copy the hmt file back to the T2, overwriting the original. (d) On the T2, open Media, and browse to your HD video. (note that the 'Enc' icon is no longer displayed). (e) Copy the HD video to USB. The resulting copy will be in the clear. You can then copy it back to the T2 and it will remain in the clear, same as an SD recording. Without a nework connection (a) On the T2, open Media, browse to your HD video, and copy it to your USB drive. (b) Connect the USB drive to your PC then follow step (b) as above. (c) Connect the USB drive to the T2, browse to the USB drive using Media browser, then copy the recording back to the T2. You can overwite the original or copy it to a different location. The recording on the T2 will now be in the clear. (d) Finally you need to do one last copy from the T2 back to USB. As you can see, the decryption works in both directions so if you have earlier backups of encrypted HD recordings you can process the hmt file in the same way, before copying the recording back to the T2. Foxy is a .NET application and a prerequisite is that Microsoft .Net framework 3.5 runtimes are installed. These are available as a download for Windows XP and are an integral part of Windows 7 I have tested it on Windows XP SP3,Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. I have also successfully ran it under mono on Mac OSX Snow Leopard, and Debian Linux. You can get your copy of Foxy by downloading the zip archive attached below. enjoy ! raydon Note: For those pioneers who are using af123's custom firmware for the T2. I have passed the relevant information on to him, and I'm confident he can very quickly implement this function 'on the box'
