Yes, or from your internal HDD. Media >> Storage (blue) >> USB, Media >> Media (yellow) >> MusicI assume that the HD-Fox T2 can playback MP3s stored on a USB memory stick
No.but can it play "FLAC" files?
No, and we call it Customised Firmware - not "hacked".If not, is this facility available in any of the "Hacked" firmware versions?
I dare say that that is quite true. However, I just happen to have an HD-Fox T2 and a BluRay player in place and space is at something of a premium.Just about every other method you can think of of playing music files is probably better than using your Humax...
Why would the typical man-in-the-street be interested in FLAC? Being lossless, it hardly saves any storage space to mention, and to the average listener in the average listening environment MP3 sounds good enough (especially at the higher bit rates). Storage is less of an issue these days, but MP3 became the de-facto standard for home digital audio while it was, and is unlikely to be supplanted now.To be honest, my real interest was just curiosity about how widely adopted the superior "Free Lossless Audio Codec" (FLAC) compression method was, MP3 replay seems to crop up on everything but FLAC is almost totally ignored.
FLAC takes up less than half the space that WAV does and WAV doesn't support tags. MP3 at 320 kBits/sec is about a quarter the size of WAV.Why would the typical man-in-the-street be interested in FLAC? Being lossless, it hardly saves any storage space to mention, and to the average listener in the average listening environment MP3 sounds good enough (especially at the higher bit rates).
To cap it all, I've just been shopping in Tesco.... and they've got a shelf of vinyl 12" LPs! What is the world coming to? How long will this fad last???Curiously enough, I hear that the "cool kids" are investing in turntables and vinyl, and debating whether direct drive or belt drive is best!
