Can anyone verify that? Is there any way of recording programmes from iPlayer to watch later - preferably by pre-programming it to dowload at a particular time? [I'm thinking this would be useful for people who are near their monthly bandwidth limit, but can use an unlimited amount in the middle of the night without it counting.]I manage well on 2.5Mbps, but I wouldn't want to risk any less.
However, being as the HDR (and - I am informed - the HD-FOX running in HDR Mode) buffers the iPlayer stream to a file, I expect it would be possible to start the programme and then pause it, wait for the buffer to fill up and then either play it "live" or save it off to play another time.
It's definitely the case you can save off the stream buffer - in order to do so you need access to areas of the file system that are only accessible with the Custom Firmware installed, and once you've done that there's no point doing it the old way with FTP, might as well use the Web Interface dedicated control.Can anyone verify that?
Does anyone happen to know the bandwidth required by the Humax portal to stream live, non-HD iPlayer? I'm moving to an area with quoted speeds of 0.5Mbps and would like to know whether my HDR-FOX T2 will still work as I'm used to!
This looks as if it ONLY works with the custom firmware, and not with the 'out of the box' firmware. Is that correct?
Yes that's correct - the file is presumably always saved on the box even with the std firmware, but the mods allow access to it either directly via Telnet if you know those commands or more conveniently (for people like me especially) via the Web Interface.This looks as if it ONLY works with the custom firmware, and not with the 'out of the box' firmware.
