Beyonwiz / Re: Will a V2 load and run the disk from my T3?
« on: December 12, 2020, 06:17:42 PM »
Thanks PRL - have posted in V2 thread in Beyonwiz forum where user Judy seems to be having same problems.  She is playing from her NAS but mine is an Hitachi 1TB hard drive purchased only a couple of years ago and which has been in use for crying case files to court to use with my laptop.  All I did was format it plugged into V2 and it has been running with enigma-formated disk for a few weeks until this problem has begun to increase in frequency.  Could there be a defrag type issue?  The media display is reporting the disk status as 87% free so it's hardly got a space problem!

Now I'm getting what seem to be buffering issues on the V2 with things recorded on the 2.5" hard drive attached to the USB 2 slot at the rear of the V2.  Has anyone else encountered this?  Is it a drive issue or a V2 issue?  By buffering issues I mean the playback freezes and the spinning 'busy' disk appears for two or three minutes and then the show resumes.  This can happen between 5 and 50 times in a one hour show!

Ended up successfully following both of the last two suggestions - thanks prl and bodogbodog.

I didn't realise the V2 had no onboard storage - no SSD?  The idea of USB-attached 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch external drives is quite awful from an aesthetic point of view!  Your idea of just using the T3 as a mount for the 4TB hard drive in there makes a lot of sense, although the rack in my basement where I store all this gear is getting a bit crowded - it won't hold a V2 unless I remove the T3

So the 2TB offering from IceTV is just a 2TB microSD card in the V2?  I assume I could transfer files from the external USB drive that take out of the T3.  Are there any other PVRs that will read the media files from the T3 or is this V2 my only viable 'path'?

My T3 is playing up - it's about 4 years old.  I'm thinking of buying a V2 but we have so many recordings I'd love to be able to keep them and play them on the V2 - is that feasible either by getting a barebones V2 and installing the disk from the T3 or by attaching the disk in a USB-connected mounting? to a new V2 with its own disk?
