Humax / Padding Missing?
« on: March 08, 2012, 07:14:54 PM »
I have noticed the last few days that the padding on my recordings doesn't exist which means that I am missing things like the news headlines because they seem to start just before the timer every day.  Anyone else having this issue?

I have deleted the schedules today and have re-added them via the web... will see if that helps or not?

Humax / Issues with Program Guide?
« on: February 28, 2012, 07:07:53 PM »
I got home this evening and tried to watch the news (which is scheduled to record) and it's not there... nor is the next scheduled show.  On closer inspection it seems that the TV Guide is about 80% blank on the device (shiny new Humax 7500T 500GB bought from ICETV).  I can't seem to see any error message or any way to check if it's connected to the web other than to play something through iView (which worked).
Switching the unit off and on again didn't seem to help, even entering the ICETV username/password again didn't seem to make any difference.
My internet connection has been up the whole time and I watched a recording last night (Monday's News) so AFAIK it was all working well then.

Any idea's on what may of caused this.  Has there been an issue with the service?  Does it cache on the device or is it constantly updating live?  (and if I do have an outage of internet does that mean nothing works?)

Humax / Copying large files
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:30:44 PM »
It seems that HDD format is limited to Fat32 (which has a 4GB file size limit) and ext3 (which won't mount on a Mac) and even then is limited to 16GB file size.

It seems what trying to copy a file to a USB HDD formatted in Fat32 only copies the first 4GB which is no good to me and ftp-ing into the PVR results in an encrypted file :(

How the hell do you copy off large files for editing/playback on a Mac (or even a PC)?

Humax / Error Message in Online Guide
« on: February 21, 2012, 09:46:15 AM »
When viewing the online guide:

I am seeing the little ! in a yellow triangle against a recording which the legend says is an "error"   While I haven't actually had a chance to check this at home, this is the second time this little icon has shown up, the first time the recording seemed to have finished without issue and I will confirm tonight if todays recording worked as expected.  In both cases the recordings were things set on the PVR itself rather than online.  Pretty much everything else has been done through the website.

Is this a known issue or am I just lucky?
