HDR will no longer go into standby

Last night the Humax got itself into a strrange state where it would not play back files. When attempting to reboot, it would not go into standby. After power cycling it will now playback the problem recordings but still will not enter full standby (it just goes into half awake mode).

I have tried the following with no success:
  • Removed redring
  • Run fix-disk
  • Cleared out the scheduled events
  • Reset to factory defaults
Plus many power cycles along the way. Does anyone have any further suggestions?

The only other thing I can think of is that power on / off timers need to be in pairs, e.g. if one gets deleted the Humax goes into 'Halk-Awake'

I don't have any power on/off timers set.
Sorry, no ideas.. does lsof show anything in half awake?
Nothing obvious...
Code:
lsof -p 256

The disk space indicators going off then coming back on 4 minutes later is exactly what happens when the box stays half awake because there's a recording due. Definitely seems to be something the software is deciding to do!

Found the problem - it was caused by a zero length ts file with associated non-zero length nts and hmt files.
I realise the 'half-awake' state was something that you was trying to get rid of, but I wonder if this could be used to force an 'half-awake' state as requested HERE

Sounds like it may be worth looking into and will try to reproduce it, but maybe not so easy to manage as 1x wake & 2x sleep via RS.
For instance... Would it still make recordings with this problem? Does the box need a reboot to recover?

I have found HDR3 in the delinquent half-awake state this morning - it has timers set to start up at 6pm and go off at 3am, but last night obviously didn't complete properly. I will investigate why this might be, but I was playing around with some very short recordings yesterday and decryption had a hiccup. Powering on and off again has not taken it back to standby.

Not got to the bottom of it yet, but I have found an orphaned .htm and .thm created a week ago and orphaned last night - note please lines highlighted in the empty_dustbin.log extract below:

Removing empty directories...
Looking for orphaned HMT files.
======================================================================
It appears to me that the orphaning has occurred because the creation time for the files has straddled the deadline for recycle bin emptying. Wouldn't it be better to delete file sets as a whole rather than piecemeal? What does "Looking for orphaned HMT files" mean ('cos it does not appear to have been successful)?

PS: I have noticed the Humax menu does not loose its place when resuming from half-awake.

I have tried deleting the orphaned files (via network share); turning off, resetting, and turning on again the DLNA database - but still HDR3 is half-awake. No time to pursue it further now.

When I had the same problem it was an unplayable file. Using the remote control, I worked down my recordings list (folders , single recordings and [Deleted]) and pressed opt+ on each until I found a folder where move/copy was greyed out. I opened that folder and repeated the operation on each file until I found the corrupt file. I then deleted it, although it has been reported that moving the file works just as well.

I had Directory Opus (a File Explorer replacement) working over SMB and was looking at the sizes - none were unexpectedly small.

Update: I tried your find command too - no match.

Thanks for the suggestion but nothing there either.

Interesting: a forced reboot (diagnostics) from delinquent half-awake shuts it down, but powering up again and returning to standby resumes the delinquent state. I am no nearer working out what is causing it.

Tried a cold boot, no change. As a non-destructive option I decided to go into maintenance mode and try running fix-disk, but it seems to bomb out:

Code:
Checking partition /dev/sdb2...

Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
hmx_int_stor: |                                                |  0.1%   
hmx_int_stor: |                                                /  0.2%
Sorry, spoke too soon - it is incrementing now but it took a long time to move from 0.2%.
