The UI on the TV will be virtually identical. Humax aren't responsible for the 2nd generation UI, that's down to Freesat. I have a Panasonic twin tuner Freesat TV. The User interface is the same as my HDR-1000S.My wife is struggling too much with the controls on our box, so I’m ditching it for a tv with built in freesat. Is there anyway I can preserve almost 1 tb of bargain hunts?
A digital modulator together with a Freeview-HD pvr will copy them in real time in full-HD quality (but not DD 5.1 audio) . PC's do not have HDMI inputs so can only copy analogue composite video in poor quality.I have the same box and the only way to transfer recordings is to connect a PC and record them in “live-time” using a pvr lead to your PC. I have had to do this through my laptop and if you have 1TB of recordings could take you quite some time...
No to 1. Yes to 2.Is is certain the StDef recordings are not encrypted on disk (or even the whole file system encrypted)?
As there is no official means to transfer any recordings off the box, it would complicate the firmware to make an exception for StDef.As the Freeview-HD spec does not impose any requirement to encrypt SD, why would any manufacturer complicate the firmware to do so ?
The HDR-Fox-T2 was easy to transfer SD files by using the box as a hub and you could transfer files over wi-fi to practically any device.No to 1. Yes to 2.
Amongst others I attempted to read the FS from a early G2 box without success, At some time presumably a software update, made all the individual files including the support files (subtly different to the Foxsat-HDR and the HDR-Fox-T2 ones). available.
There are posts on My Humax proving it possible to transfer all recordings from an old hard disk to a replacement drive. Afaik no one has bothered to try transferring SD recordings. Never recording SD can't say I have ever had any incentive to preserve SD from the original HDD. As the Freeview-HD spec does not impose any requirement to encrypt SD, why would any manufacturer complicate the firmware to do so ? Even the latest FVP-5000T allows copying of SD to to a Windows 10 PC.
We know that (very well) - this thread is talking about Freetime boxes specifically, which have a mandated Freetime-specified user interface and functionality.The HDR-Fox-T2 was easy to transfer SD files by using the box as a hub and you could transfer files over wi-fi to practically any device.
Why would they not? To separate SD from HD requires some sort of filter, thus the software needs to be more complex to encrypt only HD, not less.As the Freeview-HD spec does not impose any requirement to encrypt SD, why would any manufacturer complicate the firmware to do so ?
Did the blurb say it did record? Presumably not. Why would you think it had additional facilities that were not mentioned?The blurb didn't say it didn't record!
A long story....................bear with me.
My wife has memory problems, and was struggling to use the humax controller (see previous posts on this subject from me). To simplify things, I bought a Samsung series 8 TV, which the blurb said had freesat built in. The blurb didn't say it didn't record!
To cut the story short, I'm running the TV through the humax but it now needs two controllers to get it going. The box shuts down when the tv is turned off. Is there anyway I can get the box to start when the tv is switched on with the Samsung controller?
Things are actually simpler for my missus now, but I've lost all the smart things like voice control by running the tv on the box.
Yep. As in 'you can drive this car to London' ... but you'll need to put fuel in it.you can also record programmes
