Bob123: I had a chap that that was on an older version - and it only occurred after the DTT re-stacking , so I think the factory reset and a rescan fixed it for this chap
Jimmy22: i actually had a major win by deleting all my pre-set recordings , only took 30mins to re-establish them , of course i wrote them all down as i deleted them ! i had some recording bugs that ironed out after the full reset . Dont be afraid to do so , after a reset my recordings were intact and i found the whole process worthwhile. Of course we ask , what actually made the difference reset or re booking the recordings , don't know but "the cluster bomb technique definitely took out the sniper"
Jimmy22: good stuff, just remember the difference between a reset and a new hard drive format hehe
bfginger: So, has anyone found the 3.18 firmware to work ok after a factory reset?
Sparthir: So I got the firmware patch supplied by 2lostkiwis... Nice work.
Now I’m mostly interested in reading the tv1.db file that I can see in the root of the system when I'm linked via http.
I tried opening it in sqlite3 but it said that the database is either corrupt or encrypted. The fact that (if I open the file in a plain ol’ text editor) I can see show descriptions etc in the file would suggest that it isn’t that encrypted. Therefore I was wondering if anyone else had any luck opening up the database file in something?
I’d be interested to write some code (perhaps something in Python) to compile a list of what is available on the drive. Then from there a script could be made to stream directly off using VLC or even stitch the files together to store onto an external storage device for backing up.
Can anyone figure out what database file this is or how at least to extract the data because I've looked and can't see what it might be off the top of my head.
Oh and should we be telnetting via the standard port because I might have missed something as it currently doesn't work. I'm imagining it might be set to something else.
groom: About the MTV4000 non-freeview Australian firmware mentionned on page 60, that supposedly doesn't work in NZ because we sample channels 7MHz apart and OZ samples then 8MHz apart, I see this thread
where Ausies seem quite comfortable swapping from one to the other depending on whether they want to be able to export unencrypted recordings or not.
Anyone has an update on this?
