SSD lesson learnt

So I love my Humax T2. Love the custom firmware and webIF. I use 1.02.32 as I like the TV EPG to work smoothly.

My issue was the noise of the PVR. So I ignored advise and fitter a 4tb SSD. This allowed me to largely turn the fan off, only coming on when it got hot. Without the fan and the drive noise the Humax T2 was nearly silent. I was very happy. It didn't speed much up, maybe startup was a bit quicker and when you start a playback, else becuase the file structure being held in memory it made no difference to speed. The warning from this forum was that it would damage the SSD. This warning turned out to be true about a year latter when sectors started getting relocated.

So my new solution is to fit a drive that was recommend a 4th HDD 6500RPM. Then put the unit in the kitchen and use a remove that controls in through the wall running HDMI back into my room. Now I have a silent experience and a much more stable experience.

Sorry I slowly learn to listen to advise...... lol.

Thanks again for all the fantastic work and support. The only thing that dates this unit is the lack of streaming ability with 1.02.32, but you can't have everything. Are there a recommendations for well deisgned units that will stream BBC, Youtube and such that I could add to my setup?

love .

Could you say what make and model of SSD you had please? How many sectors were getting reallocated?

Will do. You will have to give me a couple of days.
Yes it still has some life. If is carried on I would have killed it.

Is that 22 reallocated sectors on a 4TB drive? It doesn't sound like a major concern to me?
Any loss is lost data is a loss. Either a lost program or worse a crash and loss of function. And like I said the relocating sectors was increasing exponentially.

Thanks for the info.
I notice SMART reports the Samsung drive as 99% healthy - it may be worth using the Samsung utility to repair the drive if you wish (you may need to copy data off it first). Although if it is 99% healthy repair may not be needed yet - I'm not sure - just my thoughts.
Also the Samsung utility may give better labels/descriptions for the unknown SMART attributes - just using to gather info may give you a better idea as to what to do next. They use to have Samsung Magician software for consumer SSDs, not sure if that is suitable for your particular drive.

Yes it still has some life. If is carried on I would have killed it.
You've used 24 spare sectors in over 13000 available and it only has "some life"? That's like 99.8% left.
And like I said the relocating sectors was increasing exponentially.
Exponential increase to 22? You do seem to like to exaggerate, or you don't understand the meaning of the word exponential.

Sorry the start of the curve can define the whole. Sorry I was getting crashes and losing files. So I decided that the advice that an SSD was not suitable was right. Please make your own choice..... I did

Are the details correct?
eg
Power On Hours : 29198 hours
Power On Count : 2613 count
Host Reads : 54033 GB
Host Writes : 86521 GB
That is over three years of power on, 54TB read, 86TB write.
It looks like it was used well and as others say the 24 bad sectors from a total of 7501476528 is very small.
(It may or may not indicate a decline - but regular observation of the drive performance and diagnostics can give you a better idea.)

The drives on sale on ebay. Maybe you want it.
I'm also pleased to have the space with it out the way in the kitchen.
Still looking for a recommendation for a good streaming box.

Firestick works for me with streaming. I even run my Humax T2 through it in conjunction with Kodi which has the added benefit of subtitles never going out of sync.

If you decide to go the Firestick route the one I have is 'Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra HD' which can also control the TV volume and power. The latest model is 'Firestick 4K Max' which has slightly more power and does wifi 6.

How do you run the humax through the fire stick. Thanks

Either you use the Firestick as a media streaming client and the HDR-FOX as a media server, over the home network, or the Firestick as a media player and the HDR-FOX as Network Attached Storage. Your choice.

Your post contains links to Amazon, but the anchor text for each link is whitespace. Why?

And, 'Your post contains links to Amazon, but the anchor text for each link is whitespace. Why?' = Don't know
Edit your post, then switch from WYSIWYG to raw code and you'll see what you've done, which is (I suspect) to use the "Insert Link" tool and paste the URL into the URL box but only type spaces into the Text box! If you had pasted the URL directly into the post everything would have been fine (URL and Text would have been set the same).

It's interesting that whitespace does not appear to be clickable, despite being within a URL tag.

How to switch between WYSIWYG and BB Code:
1653810012380.png ...then... 1653810083909.png

A properly formed URL (in raw code) should look line this (and you have some other clutter in there too):

[URL='actual.url']text to be displayed and clickable[/URL] ...or... [URL]actual.url[/URL]

The second example displays the actual URL as clickable text.

There is a third variation, specifically for referencing forum posts where the "unfurl" property is automatically added to the URL tag and the post displays a preview of the thread.

Once you've switched to BB Code mode, it will be persistent until you switch back to WYSIWYG mode. Post editing tools are not available in BB Code mode.

Install Kodi on the Firestick and then add the Humax T2 as a video source: https://kodi.wiki/view/Adding_video_sources
Yes, but you haven't explained how you set up the HDR-FOX to be detected as a video source. Are you using the built-in DLNA server, or SMB/NFS (which requires custom firmware and decryption)? If DLNA, that will only work with StDef recordings unless you use CF to remove the protection on HiDef recordings. And I think the OP envisages connecting the HDMI through the Firestick, and you've omitted explaining it is connected via the network. You could not, for example, use the HDR-FOX as a tuner via the Firestick, this would require an additional HDMI port on the telly to connect the Firestick and the HDR-FOX.

Also, "Humax T2" could refer to several models. If you mean specifically Humax HDR-FOX T2, you should refer to it as HDR-FOX rather than T2. The HD-FOX T2 has no DLNA server, and adding one by CF requires decryption (which is also not straightforward on a HD-FOX).
