Yes, that too. Press the button, get the spinner for a couple of seconds, then it goes away for another 10-20 seconds, then the screen goes black and it reboots.Sometimes it crashes, before even getting to iPlayer, while the portal is loading
I've never trusted it while it's recording, nor anything else actually.I only use iPlayer on the HDR-FOX now if it is something I want to download for later viewing and never while a recording is ongoing.
Which is exactly what I did unwittingly. I have used the iplayer now and then but never realised it causes the crashes. I lost some part of a recording but it didn't matter. I'm sure that I did that before without crashing though.Sometimes it crashes, before even getting to iPlayer, while the portal is loading; more often it crashes just as a programme is being loaded. I have seen this now on both old and new hardware units running either custom kernel 3.03 or standard kernel 1.03.12. I have also seen reports on myhumax.org of similar on the HDR-2000T, but it seems less common on this model.

I don't know. I do know that when I reset the cookie and DRM data without rebooting, two scheduled recordings failed: just hmt files were created and selecting these entries in the SUI gave the error message 'recording failed: unknown reason'. Both programmes were transmitted at the correct time. I rebooted and then it was fine. I don't know exactly what cookie and DRM data is stored and how the HDR-FOX uses that data. I do know that if you delete it, the file/ database is not regenerated until you reboot. When you clear the data, the tuner briefly cuts out and if you repeat the operation, you then get an error message stating that the storage could not be formatted.What have cookies and DRM got to do with scheduled recordings?
since my reporting earlier I have used the iplayer for at least 5 times without crashing. when someone else here tried the iplayer I saw the box crash . so very much like a hit or miss issue.. I have also had no crashes using iPlayer: I have used iPlayer at least five times on each now without any issues. Of course, this could just be a coincidence so try it out if you have had the same problem, and let us know how you get on.
Did you reset the cookie and DRM data? I did and have had no crashes in iPlayer since (on three different boxes). I can't be certain that this is not a coincidence so I was hoping that people would report if they are still having problems, reset the cookie and DRM data and then monitor and post again if this improves/ does not improve the situation.since my reporting earlier I have used the iplayer for at least 5 times without crashing. when someone else here tried the iplayer I saw the box crash . so very much like a hit or miss issue.
