Unable to download from humax to mac using filezilla
« on: April 14, 2013, 07:04:08 PM »
Hi All
I am able to connect from my mac using filezilla to my humax 7500t. However when I try to download the file it says
"Status:   Starting download of /media/drive1/Person Of Interest_20130408_2130.ts
Error:   Failed to open "/Person Of Interest_20130408_2130.ts" for writing
Error:   File transfer failed
Status:   Disconnected from server"

It works perfectly on my pc with filezilla. Would prefer to do this from my mac as it is my main machine.

Any ideas ?

thanks
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

"Failed to open "/Person Of Interest_20130408_2130.ts" for writing" sounds like Filezilla does not have permission to create a new file in the download location on the Mac. Make sure that you are downloading the file to a folder that Filezilla has permission to write to (maybe one within your home folder).

Also make sure that Filezilla is looking in the correct place for the Humax's files. In the Windows version of Filezilla I see 2 lists of the Humax folders. The first list seems to be symlinks for use by the Humax itself, and the second list are the actual folders.
cheers
