rsync -avr /media/drive2/mod/ /mnt/hd2/mod/
OK that sounds sensible. Is there any way of copying over the recording schedule if I connect the old HDD via a USB caddy?
Your recording schedule and Humax settings are not stored on the HDD.What rsync command should I use to restore my settings and schedule from the old drive
I can't remember. I was getting temperature warnings at the top of the Web IF several times a day, but not sure what was generating them.Do you have the fan package installed, or are you relying on the Humax default algorithm?
None of those necessarily point to the hard disk. This all seems like guesswork and supposition.These are the things that have caused the concerns:
1. Repeatedly getting high termperature alerts (even though the fan is working)
2. Frequent brief pauses in playback of both recordings and live TV
3. Frequent crashing of box
4. Frequent failed (e.g. zero length) recordings
5. Frequent missed recordings (i.e. scheduled recording not done, and no audit trail of why it didn't record)
I did run fix-disk a few months ago, but nothing really changed. The SMART stats didn't show anything obvious as far as I can remember, but I was running out of ideas and was aware of temperature warnings over the last few months. As I've now removed the original drive I can't re-run the SMART test.None of those necessarily point to the hard disk. This all seems like guesswork and supposition.
Why don't you post the SMART stats. instead?
Have the run the fix-disk procedure in maintenance mode?
I take it you haven't looked through these:Excellent - thanks.
So if the drive replacement doesn't resolve things, what are the other potential causes (and possible fixes)?
