Hi, pls can anyone advise. I have been running the latest CF for quite some time, but today the Humax popped up with a message that the HDD cannot be used until it is formatted. The CF web interface is no longer accessible. Any advice please?
This happens when something goes wrong with the file system and the HDD gets mounted by the OS as read-only. Don't panic, it can be recovered with recordings intact, the gurus will be along to advise I am sure so sit tight until then. Meanwhile I'll find some references...
Ezra / Blackhole, I read thru the the info on the link and have run this. There was cheering from the wife and children when all their recordings were accessible once more. Thanks so much for the quick response, much appreciated.
Yes, I did and it has gotten me into trouble in the past, but worked out fine this time... Black hole, are, there any docs about the version of linux the hdr-t2 uses, man pages or a list of tools and commands that can be used from a terminal session?
It's a busybox/uClibC operating environment with a Linux kernel underneath.
I strongly suspect the environment was created using buildroot (http://buildroot.uclibc.org/)
The commands which are built into the flash are very minimal - just enough to run the bootstrap and get the Humax software up and running but there is enough for basic interactive use. If you have installed the custom firmware web interface then that will have automatically enhanced the command set with a more complete busybox implementation (the additional commands are listed at http://hummypkg.org.uk/files.html?opk=busybox_1.19.3-3_mipsel.opk&type=hdrfoxt2&set=base)
