What is your reference for this assertion? I have just tried it on the Humax and online resizing works fine, and you don't have to do anything with the journalling:As I understand it, you can't just run resize2fs on ext3 as it doesn't take account of the journalling. You have first to convert to ext2, resize and then convert to ext3 again.
humax ~ # df -h /mnt/hd3 Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 6.7G 271.5M 6.4G 4% /mnt/hd3 humax ~ # /mod/sbin/resize2fs /dev/sda3 resize2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015) Filesystem at /dev/sda3 is mounted on /mnt/hd3; on-line resizing required old_desc_blocks = 1, new_desc_blocks = 1 Performing an on-line resize of /dev/sda3 to 2622611 (4k) blocks. The filesystem on /dev/sda3 is now 2622611 (4k) blocks long. humax ~ # df -h /mnt/hd3 Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 9.8G 271.5M 9.6G 3% /mnt/hd3

You don't need to do it in maintenance mode. It works perfectly OK while the filesystem is mounted and the Humax software is running.it does appear that running
resize2fs /dev/sda2(NB resize2fs) in Maintenance Mode should result in the desired increase in video storage space.
All the OP needs to do (now we've seen the data about the partition layout) should be just:
humax# opkg install e2fsprogs humax# /mod/sbin/resize2fs /dev/sda2 humax# opkg remove e2fsprogs humax# df -h /mnt/hd2
What's any of this got to do with the Foxsat? Nothing. That's why /df said "???". 'tis you who is confused...@/df Re your ???. There is a link under the word HERE which is blue to indicate a link. It's to the Foxsat custom thread on AVF.
