Season's greetings

Happy Christmas everyone. As you may have noticed I haven't had a lot of time for Humax related things in the past 6 months but hopefully that will improve in the New Year.
Things I will probably get around to in January include an upgrade to XenForo 2 - dev site first so that a few of you can have a looksie. I've also run the Humax firmware through Avast's decompiler which they recently open-sourced to produce a few MiB of more readable code so I'm sure there are avenues within that for further investigation over the next few months...

Merry Christmas af123. A while ago you floated the possibility of a 'Nowster's Patch' like binary for the HDR-FOX to prevent recordings being encrypted in the first place. Is this something you are still looking at? Such a patch would be especially nice for the HD-FOX; presumably this is also a possibility as the two devices are so similar?

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
I agree: the HD-FOX definitely needs it more than the HDR-FOX, but it will probably be two for the price of one.

Well, I achieved something that I hadn't managed to do in about 40 years, it was a Slade/Wizard free Xmas!
I reckon that deserves some kind of reward/recognition in the New Year's honours.

I saw Wizard on the pub telly with the sound down but didn't see or hear Slade anywhere. Is there some reason this seasonal classic was embargoed this year?


The Dumb One
There was a contribution made to Noddy and Jim's pension funds as it was played in he background of a couple of Eastenders that I overheard.
