There is a Linux program that runs on the box called humaxtv, This program has not been changed so there will be no change in HDMI / TV picture quality, Extra packages can be loaded to run along side the main program to add a Web Interface that you can log into from a P.C. Although the custom Firmware is best loaded from a flash device in exactly the same way as you loaded the standard .20 firmware, After the custom Firmware is loaded the HD-FOX T2 needs a Hard disk that has been formatted by the Humax box, So It would be best to get your 1TB HDD up and running before loading the custom firmware from FlashDoes it bring any general improvements, better HDMi etc, or just the ability of adding packages?
The Humax USB will supply power for an external HDD the same as a P.C. would, However it doesn't supply as much power as a P.C, Because of this some USB powered HDD's don't work with the Humax, However if your 1TB doesn't work it is possible to connect it to a separate power supply.

Note, Your Humax is formatting the HDD in a format called EXT3, This format can't be read by a P.C. (without adding extra programs), However this isn't a problem because you can get files to and from your 1TB using the LAN network socket, Where your Humax and your P.C. are on the same networkHard drive arrived this morning.
Plugged it in, works fine. Formtting as i type. Guess its going to take a while to format 1TB?
It will have finished installing them - some packages do cause the web interface to get stuck just after installation, just click to another page.Been sat like that for ages...?
Your Hard Disk Drive can always be re-formatted to a different 'format' but anything on the HDD will be lost, Also keep in mind that your HDD will have a section reserved for the Custom Firmware files which would also be lost. If you get your Humax Networked you can leave the HDD connected to the Humax and FTP files in and out of the HDD so the EXT3 format is not a problem, FTP'ed files don't retain their EXT3 format when transferred to your P.C.Is there anyway of formatting it back so the PC Can read it, if i need to in the future?
