Sorry, no. It creates entries copying from the EPG, so it needs to be live. It's not good dealing with manual recordings not from the EPG either.Is it possible to add older entries to a newly created TVdiary log? If yes how do you go about it? Would it behave just like the original, be searchable, etc?
Ah, I misunderstood. You have an existing old TVDiary DB.The older entries were also created live by copying from the EPG. Could those logs not be copied from the old CF drive to the new drive?
Never let it be known that I don't want to learn something new.You need to learn some basic Linux. The USB stick will be available in the folder structure under /media, possibly as "drive1" (but that depends).
Your computer will only be available if you have a folder mounted as a virtual USB drive using network-shares-automount.
Alternatively, with the CF betaftpd package installed and the standard FTP server turned off, you can access the relevant file from the PC by FTP (FTP username = "root", password = "humaxftp").
That's not how Linux works. Assuming a USB drive is mounted (on the HDR-FOX it will auto-mount), all storage is available as a tree under root (/). Take a look in /media - you'll get the idea.What's the command for listing all the drives available to the Linux install on the box?
mount | grep -E "^/dev/sd", ie filter the list of mounted filesystems to show only SATA disks. When you read an output line like
/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/hd2 type ext3 (rw,data=ordered)
ls -l /mnt/hd2to see what's in the root of the filesystem that's mounted on the directory.
I thought I explained: with the old drive mounted as a USB device, the file structures on the old drive will appear under /media (so the answer is "yes")
On the command line:
- pwd (print working directory) tells you what the current directory is;
- ls (list) tells you what (non-hidden) files and folders exist in the current directory;
- ls <path> tells you what (non-hidden) files and folders exist in director <path>;
- cd <path> (change directory) changes the working directory to <path>;
- etc. Google "linux commands" for anything else you might want (but keep to simple stuff - the Humax Linux is not well endowed).
