Now the trouble I was having accessing iPlayer (via the TV Portal) have been pinned down on the system clock not being set up after a cold start (see THIS TOPIC - click), I have started this topic to classify it under a descriptive title. Summary: I have been using an HD-FOX T2 as a stand-alone streaming client for my HDR-FOX, with the expectation that it would also provide access to iPlayer. However, every time I tried to access the TV Portal I received an on-screen report "An error has occurred accessing...". This was eventually tracked down to the HD-FOX (and presumably also the HDR-FOX) setting up the internal system time from the EPG data received from the aerial. Without an aerial feed, the box doesn't know what the date/time is, so cannot negotiate the authentication handshake with the Humax TV Portal service on the Internet. The date/time can be set up manually using a Telnet session (needs the CF installed but not the full MSP), and once set up it appears to be maintained as long as the box is on or in stand-by, but loses it over an exetended period of power down (disconnected from the mains). Note that this will be an extremely rare circumstance - specifically when cold-starting without an aerial connection in the manner that I wish to do (sigh). The CF can provide a fix - there is the possibility of fetching system time from an Internet time server (as far as I know there are NO circumstances which would demand system time when you have neither an aerial nor an Internet connection). I await with baited breath!
