As much as I like to prove myself right http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/hdr-fox-t2-1tb-freezing.653/#post-9508 in this case it's bitter sweet. When I tried to bring the box out of standby this morning it wouldn't wake up. I did the usual IT thing and went for the switch round the back and it just went to the Humax splash screen (with the logo) and saying 'Start System' on the front and stuck there. There's no sound from the box at all - in particular no sound of a hard disk doing anything at all which presents a challenge as I'm not sure I can even try resetting the firmware if the disk won't even spin!! Will try anyway.... @Black Hole - a new entry for the glossary - SSOD. And yes I'll note the s/n of the box if (looking like when) it has to go back.
