In the standard references: http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/using-fox-t2-recordings-with-plex-media-server.2003/#post-25775Can you clarify what method1 is? Have you seen that referenced somewhere?
unencrypt only does one thing at a time, and searches for a candidate to decrypt (when not otherwise occupied) when triggered by the cron schedule.If it takes longer than 30 minutes will another start decrypting or does unencrypt run serially?
Why would you want to? Unless there is a specific need, unencrypt should no longer be used. It was created before the multiplicity of processes now available via the WebIF, and does not cooperate with the multitasking framework now incorporated into the WebIF. Neither does it cooperate with undelete, or contribute to the activity logs. Hence the instruction not to use it unless the target HDR-FOX is not on a home network - ie is managed purely by the use of USB package bundles. Why did you disregard the comment "Note: this method is no longer the preferred means to auto-decrypt. See comment below**."?Also - I can't find the unencrypt package...
What, exactly, are your preferences for CF2? You would be locked in a time warp, because it is not supported by any of the on-line stuff at all (package management etc), and the disk recovery tools are far more advanced in CF3.I'd also prefer to use CF V2 than V3 if that could be put back in an installable archive.
That begs the question: why are you decrypting, or using CF at all? Clearly your requirements go beyond the plain vanilla HDR-FOX fresh out of the packaging, so you might as well install the best there is.I just want to use it to watch DVD's and some TV.
Nope, it's gone.I have not checked, but I think it may be available as a downloadable package bundle for installation by USB.
They should be fixed then, it has been gone for a while. Can you point out where it says that? Somebody will correct the documentation. It was no longer being maintained and started interacting with other packages in interesting ways as things evolved.The docs do say unencrypt is still supported so I went looking for it. I had no idea it had been removed entirely.
You don't need to leave a PC plugged in to use the new method, just use one once to enable recursive decryption and then leave it to get on with it.If the code is still available this is possibly the best method of decryption for anyone not willing or able to leave a PC plugged in
if it can reduce transfer times or decript prior to ftp transfer.
Any chance of putting it back into the library?
I'd also prefer to use CF V2 than V3 if that could be put back in an installable archive.
When the OPK file is removed, the OPB file is usually still available, as it is in this case :-Nope, it's gone.
If really necessary, I could create a .spk file to be loaded via USB that enable recursive decryption on the media root.May I suggest unencrypt does still have utility, albeit under very rare circumstances - when the user is literally running an installation purely by USB update?
That just seems to download an empty file though...When the OPK file is removed, the OPB file is usually still available, as it is in this case :-
You're surprised???Well - that works like a dream doesn't it !
Possibly it could, but why is it necessary? Auto-decrypt just works away in the background, decrypting recordings as they are made. As long as you are not in a mad hurry, the recording will have been decrypted by the time you want it for anything off-box. With a VFD decryption progress bar firing up every time something is being decrypted, you wouldn't necessarily know which file was being processed, and it could draw unwanted attention from other members of the household.Could the front of the box indicate decryption in progress maybe?
As I have stated many times in the past, we have no control over the appearance of anything on-screen (with the very minor exception of being able to override the TV Portal). Maybe you are now going to realise the value of using the WebIF for "doing stuff" (and you get a status report of what the box is doing as well).Or some sort of flag on the box menu to indicate a file has been decrypted.
