Yes if you are prepared to open the case and attach the hard drive to a PC. You can then download the recordings to the PC using humaxrw and then FTP them to the HDR.I have a Humax 9300t but am upgrading to the FOX to get the HD channels. Is it possible to move the contents of my existing device onto the T2?
Yes it has an FTP server built in by default (not a particularly good one but just about adequate) but it isn't turned on by default. No problem to put recordings on the Humax but you need to be aware that if you want to take them off they are initially stored encrypted. There is a LOT of information about how to cope with this on the Forum.Thanks. That sounds good to me, no problem dismantling the old unit. So does the t2 run FTP by default?
Yes, but don't ask me how to work it.Does the humax unit register as one of the permissible Sky playback devices?

Regarding FTP: I'll get the new box in place and working, and then decrypt and transfer the contents of the old HDD.
Web interface with the custom firmware looks sweet too.
Sorry I have confused you. The old hard drive from the 9300T is not encrypted so nothing to do. It is using the FTP server to take content off the HDR where encryption becomes an issue.Regarding FTP: I'll get the new box in place and working, and then decrypt and transfer the contents of the old HDD.
CorrectApparently not. To amplify (my understanding of the foregoing):
Extract the 9300 drive and connect to a PC by any means (probably a USB to ATA adapter);
Not really; humaxrw is a data transfer program not a device driver. You use humaxrw to download the programs to the PC and then FTP them to the HDR as a separate process.Run humaxrw on the PC to be able to access the 9300 drive format;
CorrectEnable the FTP server on the HDR-FOX;
Not possible in one step as far as I know.Transfer the 9300 files directly to the HDR-FOX My Video folder (or pre-created sub-folder within).
Of course it is. If you use Samba on the HDR, you can map a drive on the PC. Then make the mapped drive and whatever directory you desire the current working dir and extract using humaxrw direct onto the HDR.Not possible in one step as far as I know.
