I am thinking of taking the plunge and replacing my old Topfield TF5800 but would like to ask a few questions first. 1. Back to back recording - how does the hummy deal with them if padding is applied, the toppy running mystuff (an epg replacement) would merge the recording or if on different channels adjust the padding so both recordings could still take place if you were already using both tuners. i.e. recording 1 -BBC 1 1930-2000 padding would be 1927-2005 recording 2 - ITV1 1945-2015 padding would be 1942-2020 If I wanted to record say channel 4 from 2000 to 2030 the toppy would adjust the padding on recording 1 to 1927-2000 and then switch and record channel 4 from 2000-2035, is the hummy this intelligent? 2. If using custom firmware and the web interface maybe with an iphone away from home does the hummy have to be left on or can you wake it remotely to allow you to set timers etc? 3. Is it really that complicated to backup recording? the toppy was just a case of connecting a usb cable transferring and using most editing software to remove adverts etc then burn to DVD, I know it wasn't HD but it seems even std is a little harder on the hummy. 4. One of the main reasons for thinking of getting one is the ability to stream my recording to a sony bravia, do I have to remove the encryption first for HD recordings? Thanks for any advice.
